One of our first stops during Paris Fashion Week was to Cube Showroom, which was in it's very first season. It was there that we met Italian Giuseppe Buccinna and got to experience his very first collection as a fashion designer.
Being originally trained as a civil engineer, he then went on to get a diploma in pattern making from Instituto Secoli. You can see the influence his engineering background has on his collection. Giuseppe uses a monochrome palette in order to place the focus on the shapes, fabrics and details of each piece.
Giuseppe says the attraction for abandoned structures as well as the fascination for Eastern cultures, psychology, music and painting also play a crucial role in the development of his ideas. His collection is entirely made in Italy using natural fabrics, such as raw silks, beautiful cottons and amazing wools. We also love that, from the very beginning, the Giuseppe Buccinna brand is focused on ethical standards and sustainable practices proving that amazing fashion does not have to come at a cost to the environment.
With only a little training in fashion design, it is amazing how well he understands the form of the female body and how beautifully his garments fit the form.
We also love his juxtaposition of smart and casual within a single garment, such as the jacket where one side has a more traditional suit collar and lapel while the other side of the same jacket has the shape of a more casual jacket. We also appreciate the subtle details throughout the collection, such as the asymmetric details throughout, such as on the back of some of the pieces, and the placement of the seams throughout that aid in creating a perfect fit.
Here are the shots from the inaugural Giuseppe Buccinna collection.
