It’s a Tale of Three Cities in the aptly named AW14 Places collection from menswear label Antony Morato
Get ready to go on a journey with Italian menswear brand Antony Morato this winter. Launching only yesterday, the affordable designer label’s AW14 collection, Places is a line encapsulating the adventurous spirit inherent in Antony Morato designs. Captured by photographer Toni Thorimbert and film director Brando De Sica, the AW14 collection is centred on the idea of three young men who allow us to explore their lives while they discover the European cities of London, Barcelona and Naples. “We wanted to describe the cities which influence our collective imagination through the same eyes we all have, through the same eyes I saw and see these three places when we are looking for ideas and inspiration,” says Lello Caldarelli, Chairman and Art Director of Antony Morato.
The first of Caldarelli’s “Morato men” is Stefano, a Neapolitan actor who is fascinated by Naples’ complexity and enamoured with its beauty, which is echoed in Antony Morato’s Places pieces. In London, however, the character of Italian-born Val embraces the British capital’s constant reinvention. Reflecting the Antony Morato philosophy, Val feels inspired and free to be who he is without judgement. Barcelona then provides the perfect location for Hamburg-raised Daniel to enjoy the city’s amalgam of young and old. His traditional, sophisticated style and youthful mentality not only mirrors Barcelona’s atmosphere, but also matches Antony Morato’s dedication to seeking out new textiles and innovating classic designs.
In celebration of the release of the AW14 collection, available in stores this September, Antony Morato will premiere a photographic exhibition. Luckily for you, Antony Morato have created this fashion film to tide you over until then:
