” … STOP CRYING … LIKE A LITTLE GIRL. I ’ LL GIVE YOU A CHARM. THAT ’ LL MAKE YOU A MAN. …” . ANGELOS FRENTZOS FOR THE SS15 MAN OPENS LIKE THIS. WITH THE STRENGHT OF “ SANTA SANGRE ” OF JODOROWSKY THAT IS THE BIGGEST REFERENCE AND FIL ROUGE OF THIS COLLECTION, TOGETHER WITH THE DESIGNS THAT ILYA AND EMILIA KABAKOV DID FOR THE NATIONAL CIRCUS OF MOSCOW.

THAT ’ S WHY WE FOUND IN THESE GARMENTS THE FORM AND THE TEXTURE OF THE ACTIVE WEAR OF THE AMERICAN FORMS, REIN VETED FOR THE JUGGLER MAN THAT HAS TO FACE EVERYDAY THIS BIG CIRCUS THAT IS LIFE. AND IS HERE THAT WE FIND IN FULL EXPRESSION THE SHARP CUTTING IRONY OF THE DESIGNER: HE HAS CREATED THIS MAN THAT PUTS HIMSELF INBETWEEN A REVOLUTIONARY FROM THE FUTURE THAT WALKS ON THE WIRE OF BALANCE AND A VERY FRAGILE CONTEMPORARY SOUL THAT COVERS HIMSELF WITH PANELS AND COLOURS TO FACE HIS DAYS WITH THE RICHNESS OF A SMILE. “… I CALL THIS SHADOW – AESTHETICS. I USE THIS TERM TO REFER TO THAT WHICH IS NOMINALLY EXCLUDED FROM THE REALM OF THE AESTHETIC … BUT REMAINS NECESSARY IN ORDER FOR THE AESTHETIC TO DIFFERENTIATE ITSELF FROM EVERYTHING ELSE …” .

AND EVERYTHING IN THIS COLLECTION FOLLOWS THIS AESTHETICAL TREND: THE MASSIVE USE OF MESH GIVES A SORT OF INCONSISTENCY TO THE BOMBE RS AND TO THE TOPS, THAT FIND THEIR STRENGHT IN THE USE OF JAPANESE STENCILS FROM THE ART MOVEMENTS OF THE LATE SEVENTIES DECLINED IN EVERY POSSIBLE SHAPE AND COLOUR TO FIT THE GARMENT AS AN ARMOUR. EVERY PRINT WE FIND ON THE FABRICS IS BORN ON A CIRCUS FI ELD: FROM THE PAST TO THE FUTURE. EVEN THE USE OF THE LEATHER, IN THIS COLLECTION, IS SOMETHING THAT GOES THROUGH THE MEANING OF LEATHER IN ITSELF: IT ’ S A FUNCTIONAL EDGY GAME OF THE AESTHETIC TO MISLEAD THE DRAMA.

THIS COLLECTION IS ONE OF THE MOST COMPLE TE AND INTENSE OF FRENTZOS AND IT KEEP IN HIS DEEP, THE PROFOUND RESPECT AND THE GREAT KNOWLEDGE THAT THE DESIGNER HAS FOR THE FASHION IN ITS EVERY POSSIBLE VARIATION. “… AND IN THE RING STANDS A CIRCUS MAN HOLDING UP A LIGHT. WHAT YOU SEE AND WHAT YOU WILL HEAR WILL LAST YOU THE REST OF YOUR LIFE …” .
