“Belief + Doubt = Sanity”, the new GRINKO collection for next Fall/Winter 2016-17

It’s called “Belief + Doubt = Sanity”, the new GRINKO collection for next Fall/Winter 2016-17, almost, indeed, was a slogan to be recited and screamed in a procession, where, by reason of the purely experimental freedom, the designer praises with these three terms  the equation of full consciousness, all the times in which in front of dogmas there arises reasonable doubts.

Once again the work of GRINKO is going back to the typical neo-romantic themes, experimental and trend toward an introspective journey that mixes different levels and times, in a clash of eras and styles to their strident and in some respects conflicting aspects, such as the Victorian Time, with the Eighties punk, always, however, corroborated by a Japanese cultural heritage that has influenced the designer since his childhood.

Certainly the iconic garment is the oversize bomber which draws inspiration from the London punk street styles, but it is revisited and elaborated through unique brocades inspired by nature from the ultramarine blue tones.

The symbol of this season is the “Goldenfish”, reflected in a human face, which turns it through an extremely innovative three-dimensional game, almost finding its own and exclusive movement.

Very cool, and new it also the use by GRINKO of the lace crochet, exclusively designed by hime, in which, however, is rendered highly topical by the combination of materials and unusual shapes.

The different applications create layered and the 3D levels that help to give to each garment its own identity

The palette ranges from yellow to English green, passing through pink and arriving to the  ultramarine blue and black.

Finally, also the innovative use of a new form of knitting wear, in which can be spun spinning such as to create countless of Jacquard colorful, but at the same time very light.

The all strictly low shoes, made by Mario Valentino for GRINKO draw near to the shopper and clutch bags (GRINKO licensed by GORRERI) but these are carried as comfortable backpacks.
