Andrea Di Salvo
Andrea Di Salvo was born in Rome, class 1992.
Closed to his city and to the passion for art, Andrea attended artistic high school Giorgio De Chirico. He continued his studies at the Academy of Costume e Moda in Rome. The course of study taken influenced his stylistic identity. His style has been reflected in recent academic years, thanks to the teaching staff, developing a preference for designers such as Cristobal Balenciaga (60 years), Rei Kawakubo and Martin Margiela.
Andrea’s collection is named brehat, it has been modelled this January during the event Alta Moda. His woman’s fashion collection exhibits six outfits, with a study on volumes and shapes inspired from Brittany and its costumes of the early 20th century. The choice of creating these clothes with rough textiles is born from a necessity to accentuate the architectural shapes of the garments.
The materials are linen – organza – Jersey. The technique used on a part of the clothes is matelassé, whilst on others a process of patchwork with an assemblage of flat rods. His project is a reinterpretation of a popular culture according to a personal perspective, one obsessed with shape – volume and textile.
After the presentation of that collection, Andrea worked with the company Angelo Vasino, taking care of the graphics / style of the same. A few months later Andrea began his working career in Gucci, in menswear.
