Here’s how Maurizio Modica and Pierfrancesco Gigliotti see the man for their next spring/summer collection: an Ivy League New York messenger boy who doesn’t follow the rules.
The volumes and dimensions of sartorial garments are taken apart, and sporty, urban accessories—of guys who struggle and weave their way through traffic jams for their daily survival—are spiffed up for the wardrobe.
Urban and committed, the Frankie Morello biker also prefers extreme color combinations where the only rule is “no rules.”
Shocking colors are combined with regimental cuts, traditional neckline, and sartorial touches.
“We were inspired by the metropolitan bike opportunism is influenced by the exotic stylistic and cultural melting pot of the Big Apple.”
