Italian ELEGANCE + SENSUALITY + VULNERABILITY + AMBIGUITY + simplicity + EXQUISITE FABRICS + timeless QUALITY + PRECISE TAILORING + ANTI-CONFORMIST CLASSIC = M A T T E O B I G L I A R D I
Menswear fashion label that goes against everything fast fashion stands for.
The label embodies elegance and simplicity. Simplicity is transported through streamlined silhouettes and precise tailoring. Elegance is brought by the Italian sartorial flair with a strong sense of under- stated sophistication. A polished juxtaposition of textures, fabrics and impeccable details. Exploration of the classics to bend the rules of traditional menswear, challenging the notions of masculinity and gender stereoptypes.
Inspired by the designer’s personal journey in the London underground queer scene of the early 2000s, mixed with his Italian heritage.
Made in Italy in trusted and respectable factories at high standards and under strict quality control.
The designer, Matteo Bigliardi, moved to London from the North of Italy, to study at the prestigious “Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design”. He successfully completed a BA in Fashion Design Menswear in 2006 and an MA in 2009 under the legendary tutorship of Prof. Louise Wilson OBE. His MA final collection was part of the acclaimed Central Saint Martins MA Press show at London Fashion Week. After the MA, Matteo worked at high-end fashion houses in Italy and London, assisted the costume designer Arianne Phillips on the movie: “Kingsman the Secret Service” and took part at Fashion East MAN, London Fashion Week in September 2010.
