Alessandro Vigilante Fall Winter 2023 Collection at Milan Fashion Week

Alessandro Vigilante Fall Winter 2023 Collection at Milan Fashion Week, Presents ACT VI Collection, SENSITIVE BODY

ALESSANDRO VIGILANTE’s Fall Winter 2023 Collection, now in ACT VI, continues his exploration of the body in motion; it is a body that feels, that is open to listening to itself, and that is adept at capturing every shift in movement, even imperceptible ones; it is a body that breathes, that moves even when standing still.

The collection retraces the brand’s signature traits: masculine tailoring offset by hyper-feminine garments characterised by graphic cut-outs; precision that embraces eroticism, clean lines; sculptural shapes made of technical materials such as scuba; sheer fabrics used for corsetry; relaxed silhouettes and shapes that cling to the body like a second skin; and the ever-present natural vegan rubber that has been a source of intense fascination for the creative director since the first season.

The colour palette, true to the established cornerstones of black, ivory and light pink, is refreshed by the inclusion of cornflower blue, citrus yellow and olive green.

The thermography-inspired print, on stretch panné velvet, is another first for the brand. Midi lengths alternate with vertiginous minis, new this season for Alessandro Vigilante Fall Winter 2023 Collection, paired with maxi bomber jackets in wool tailoring or padded wet nylon.

The looks are complemented by the Sylvie Loafer and the Sylvie Thigh High boots, a nod to the famous dancer Sylvie Guillem, known for her extraordinary talents.

The toe box is elongated and punctuated by a toe tip in contrasting material. The loafer is made of mesh or PVC, while the thigh high boot is made of soft stretch leather.

Who is Alessandro Vigilante

Passion, craftsmanship and audacity describe the trajectory of Alessandro Vigilante, born in 1982 and originally from Puglia, where fashion and dance, the quintessence of his inspiration and expressive language, are consistently intertwined.

After finishing high school, he turned his passion for dance into a career, becoming a professional dancer. During these years, he furthered his training in contemporary dance by studying, for example, Merce Cunningham’s revolutionary technique, exploring the concepts of deconstruction, stasis and movement that he later incorporated into his collections. In those same years, he discovered the dance theatre of Pina Bausch, an icon of art and style who taught him to observe and admire the compassion and sensitivity of the body.

His transition to fashion, without ever abandoning dance, in 2003 saw him devote the same commitment to his studies at the IED in Milan, which culminated in him winning the two competitions My Own Way and My Own Show sponsored by Vogue Italia.

After his first fashion show début in Milan as one of the young up-and-coming designers selected by Franca Sozzani, Alessandro Vigilante switched his focus to fashion design, working for 7 years at Dolce & Gabbana, then in Rome, at Gucci, alongside Alessandro Michele, and finally again in Milan with the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini project.

This professional growth, extremely intense and gratifying, prompted his desire to express his own personal vision of style and femininity, with the launch of the ALESSANDRO VIGILANTE brand, introduced by the ACT I Collection.
