Lucio Castro, Spring/Summer 2012
Following the lead set by the NOHARM brand, ex Armani Exchange (yes, Armani Exchange), Argentinean designer Lucio Castro sees the future in sustainable fabrics and artisanal techniques. His Spring/Summer 2012 collection, named “Nature is a language, can’t you read?” after a Smiths’ (Morrissey being a famous veggie) song, comprises clean-cut, minimalist pieces inspired, for the most part, by French filmmaker Fernand Deligny’s concept of “elevated simplicity.” Is the future of fashion, ehtical?
