An introduction to Marcelo Burlon

It’s that time again. We’ve got yet another exciting new brand to introduce at Tessuti for AW18, Marcelo Burlon. The Milan based brand has joined Tessuti for the new season bringing a new genre defying proposition of clothing that would be much better described as cultural artefacts. We welcome them whole heartedly and look forward to being a part of the label’s evolution.

The brains behind the brand is Marcelo Burlon himself, a self-styled ‘jack of many trades’ who has been a constant on Milan’s party circuit for many years. His movement into fashion is relatively new but has been backed by the fashionistas he’s been working alongside for most of his career.

The concept brings together his experience planning parties for fashion’s crème de la crème as well as his ventures into the world of underground music and his own personal style ethos. The result is a vibrant collection that tributes and subverts the standards of fashion through the lens of a relative outsider.

For this season, Tessuti will carry a range of Burlon’s ready to wear men’s collection which ranges from outerwear to premium loungewear. Each piece bare’s a reference to various points in streetwear’s history, either carrying a graphic taken from Burlon’s own cultural iconography or a take on classic styling such as taping or pattern that brings it in line with modern fashion.

Further to his own pieces, we will also be carrying Burlon’s celebrated collection with Italian sportswear masters Kappa. The designer’s reinterpretation of classic pieces by Kappa celebrates their past while also adding a touch of premium creativity to the collection.

Marcelo Burlon for men is available online now at Tessuti.
