LUKE AZZOPARDI RESORT COLLECTION 2016 LAUNCH

Tags:   Fashion,   Career,   Designer

By The Swag Team   -  August 27, 2015



Gozitan designer Luke Azzopardi’s Resort Collection 2016 If You Ask Me, I’m Yours, unveiled on the 26 August, 2015 at Hagar Qim temples at 8pm was received by a distinguished audience of around 120 persons. The collection, composed of 40 diverse looks, all one-off pieces were both designed and handcrafted in Gozo. 

The deep-seated associations existing between the pre-historic heritage of the Maltese islands and that of the rest of the world have found refuge in our collective conscious. The temples at Hagar Qim serve as an organic backdrop for the designer’s vision of primitivism in contemporary art practice. If You Ask Me, I’m Yours takes into consideration Maltese and Gozitan landscapes and how the human form interacts within such landscapes. Man’s most innate preoccupations and primitive desires are crucial subjects in today’s local art, and in a design world that is growing more aware of geopolitical phenomena, these issues are perhaps, now more than ever, outright and explicit.

 

If You Ask Me, I’m Yours plays upon the idea of creating bold, sculptural structures using very stiff fabrics marked with print whilst juxtaposing with airy textiles to further enhance the concept of day/night changes. In this collection, clothes act like stand-alone sculptures when they are not worn, and it is this solidity and permanence which makes them primitive. In the stripping down to the basic, essential items of clothing, with a clothing scheme referencing local terrain, it seeks to explore the uncivilized through the simplification of that which exists within the realm of the civilized.

 

The collection was complemented by a contemporary dance piece by local contemporary dance company Naupaca Dance Factory. The music for the duration of the launch was performed acoustically by local artist Jorje Bosios and the band This.Co, together with a poetry-reading by writer Maria Theuma.

 

This project seeks to help establish Luke Azzopardi as a Maltese luxury brand name, creating exclusive one-off pieces of elevated aesthetic proportions. It also seeks to push local artisanal couture as a self-sustainable industry within the arts sector.
