Our good friend Marcelo Burlon has another ace up his sleeves. Known for his events, parties, art direction and vast connections in the worlds of fashion and art, the Milan based creative presents his first ever t-shirt collection in time for Summer 2012. Much like the world he lives in, Marcelo presents a line of bold graphic tees. Beautiful prints, great print placements and of course the most premium of quality make it a line, that you should not miss out on.
Marcelo uses t-shirts as a launch-pad for his multi-culti vision centered around the idea of self-determination as revolutionary tool. Drawing iconographic elements from different cultures – Mapuches crosses from Patagonia, Argentinean birds feathers, esoteric symbols, nods to rave and club culture, plus muse Lea T as an icon of reinvention – Marcelo creates his very own symbology. Printed on black tees and developed by graphic designer Giorgio Di Salvo, motifs have a kaleidoscopic quality: visually arresting and bold, they keep you guessing “Is this a symbol I know? A graphic from an album sleeve? An alchemic element? Folk?”. Maybe they are all of the above, maybe not. Marcelo invites you to use your imagination to fill the gaps.
Check out the first collection by Marcelo Burlon in the clip here above!
