Emerging designer Luca Magliano and their eponymous label Magliano has debuted its Fall/Winter 2020 collection, “Mediterranean Goth.” Magliano was founded in 2016 and quickly rose to the fashion industry’s attention, winning Vogue‘s “Who’s On Next” and regularly showing at Milan Men’s Fashion Week since.

The designer creates his collections in Bologna, where the designer is also a part of the underground LGBTQ+ scene in which they are deeply committed to supporting independent organizations fighting for minorities’ rights. This ethos, passion, and sensibility can be found within Magliano’s designs.

“Mediterranean Goth” is grungy and camp, it’s androgynous but indebted in archaic design tropes. The result is spectacular, with oversized tailoring complete with exaggerated shoulders, sheer fabrics, and reimagined classic elements dominating the collection.

Elsewhere, the collection comments on love, memories, and fantasies. Clothes are torn to represent mourning — which is echoed in the brand’s logo, which is scrawled over hairy sweater vests in a gothic font. Trousers are high waisted, and other standouts such as a pair of leather dungarees further nod to the underground LGBTQ+ scene with its combination of leather and workwear notions.

Magliano’s FW20 “Mediterranean Goth” collection can be seen in the lookbook and runway presentation above, and for those looking to get their hands on some pieces, check out Magliano’s list of stockists, or shop the collections on Slam Jam.
