Inimitable pattern plays in conjunction with blatant patches of text bring witty charm to Italian designer Andrea Lazzari’s Autumn Winter 2015 collection for his label, Plus Que Ma Vie. Entitled ‘Oxymoron’, Lazzari’s designs are adorned with contradicting phrases, such as “Eyes Wide Shut” or “Less, But Better”. However, the true oxymoron of the collection surpasses the printed text as Lazzari demonstrates his command of mixing beautiful, classic tailoring with experimental uses of fabric and shape to create simply decorative, precisely disordered, and casually dressy garments. The emerging designer is certainly bringing his own touch of playfulness to a minimal aesthetic to establish a mark of his own. And considering the handsome product, there is little to protest.
