Paolo Carzana

Paolo Carzana’s graduation collection is a personal protest against the abuse of power. THE BOY YOU STOLE is his utopia, an inverted world inhabited and protected by his “monstrous characters”. Working with military references, the hand tools of craftsmen and traditional outerwear, a subversion of existing menswear codes emerge into enormous, elevated silhouettes and otherworldly extensions of the body. Tree-shrub waxing and the hand dyeing of found historical linen, vintage French toile and hessian (burlap) is reinvented, contrasting with innovative pineapple, bamboo and banana textiles, all in place of unsustainable modern equivalents. Avoiding all digital processes of today and refusing animal products, the handcrafted collection grew from initially working solely with brown paper to the creation of the imagined shapes, oversized scale and proportions.
