AXDW - Angelos Frentzos

Day1 of AXDW ended with Angelos Frentzos' rock concert themed show. Frentzos is Greek but currently lives and works in Milan. Along with numerous collaborations with modern artists, my AXDW notes point out that his work has been showcased at London's Victoria & Albert Museum as well as the Kyoto Costume Institute in Japan. It's been 5 years since he last held a catwalk show in Athens (last season he participated in AXDW with a presentation party). Press release reads "his collection is marked by power, new age and art rock elements with basic colours being faded black, purple and green" and that's as accurate as it gets.

Interesting use of modern technologies in garments construction, light fabrics, plenty of studs, cuts and peaked shoulders as well as a gorgeous evolved gradiator stillettos were all mixed to produce a rather neo-rock s/s collection. Star.

I know we can't decide before seeing the other shows too, but I really believe this is gonna be my favourite. I fell in love with the hair, the make-up, the shoes and the clothes of course.
More like that please!
