16Arlington FW24 Portrays a Dazzling Haunted House

“What makes a monster? Is it their physical freakishness? Is it their bloodlust? Or is it their status as something other than human, something abject, unnatural?”

16Arlington‘s Marco Capaldo lives in an everlasting daydream. The 31-year-old London veteran brought life to the luxurious label alongside his late partner Federica ‘Kikka’ Cavenati, honoring her lively spirit since passing in 2021. Capaldo has continued to expand 16Arlington’s identity with feathered frocks and shimmering undertones identified as “it” girl uniforms.

16Arlington returned to London Fashion Week, opening the second day with a glamorously sinister Fall/Winter 2024 collection titled “I’m Not Sorry, It’s Human Nature.” The 41-look range questions, “What makes a monster?” as the show notes read, “Is it their physical freakishness? Is it their bloodlust? Or is it their status as something other than human, something abject, unnatural? Is a monster born, or are they made?”

London-based artist and curator Charlie Fox guided Capaldo through the collection, influenced by his 2019 title My Head is a Haunted House. His work comes to life across eerie projections that examine reality, translated into the collection that decked the halls of Barbican Centre’s The Curve gallery. The circular venue was awakened by human shadows, crawling under beaming lights in the name of illusion. 16Arlington’s shimmering allure stood strong, decorating evening dresses, wool coats, and fuzzy knitwear in exotic materials ranging from ostrich leather to sheer organza. An array of black looks began the collection, followed by sheer gowns headed for the alter. Knitwear clung to models’ shoulders and replaced traditional tops, while awkward cuts and sparkling ornamentation discharged twilight swimmers under the sea.

Take a closer look at 16Arlington’s FW24 collection in the gallery above, and stay tuned for more Paris Fashion Week content on Hypebeast.
