The Antony Morato Fall Winter Collection 2019/2020 explores new paths and reinvents the brand’s DNA by adapting it to contemporary trends. Vintage styles are mixed with refined urban-inspired details in a versatile collection including four fashion themes and two sport-inspired themes.
The New ID
The color palette is essential: the black mixes with the white and the red on tartan shirts and trousers. The electro-punk inspiration of the faux leather details and of the black rubber studs, together with the metal zippers and the rhinestones on sweatshirts and t-shirts, evokes the punk-rock style of The Smiths and Joy Division.
The theme also features original tech fabrics on padded and puffy jackets, often shiny and oversize, reminiscent of the 80s and 90s.
Urban moods, cement and severe architecture, harsh details and military buildings inspire the Industrial Landscape theme.
The grey tones of the urban-style padded jackets are mixed with natural colors like the army green and the putty of the cotton trousers enriched by street-style details.
The tech materials mix with each other: nylon is combined with neoprene and with waxed cotton. The textures overlap also on the felt details and on the Velcro appliques reminiscent of the rank patches of the military uniforms.
The neat, minimalist and classy English style is combined with modern, sharp details. The color palette ranges from blue to silver grey, from white to bottle green, creating a unique fusion of two complementary worlds: the traditional British taste, with its connections to the college background, and the formal elegance, enriched by sporty details reminding of retro ski suits, like the vintage three colours down jacket or the Nordic-inspired knitwear.
The color contrasts on sweatshirts, shirts and t-shirts recall the 90’s snowboard suits, while the wool coats and the tech jackets highlight the contrast between technology and tradition.
Student protests, sexual emancipation, transgression and nostalgia inspire the last part of the collection.
The past is told through desaturated colors like in the old Polaroid pictures: blue, burgundy, tobacco brown, beige and powder blue.
The revolutionary 70s also inspire the textures and the fabrics: stripes, zigzag and jacquard patterns are mixed with corduroy, bouclé and Glen plaid.
Warm-colored shirts and t-shirts are printed with graphic elements such as Polaroids and explicit pictures, evoking the sense of freedom and the cultural excitement of those years.
Sport 1/ Racing.
This collection is linked to the motorcycling world, where absolute colours – red, black, white and royal blue – mixed with bands and strips, emphasise the overlapping of fabrics and shades just like in the biker suits.
The brand’s logo is widely featured on comfortable pieces that mix energy and wearability.
The theme combines different fashion concepts featuring original pieces like the sweatshirts made out of mixed materials.
