In the magical atmosphere of Stromboli, Matthew Williams presented the SS22 collection of his brand 1017 ALYX 9SM , of which he is founder and creative director.
Directed by Jordan Hemingway , through a 16mm film with warm and blurry tones, the film of the show entitled "BEYOND" takes place in the same location, but in different situations, all with the sea in the background. It starts with a walkway on the rocky beach, which creates enchanting contrasts with the total white outfits proposed by the brand. Leather biker jackets for him, long dresses for her, combined with more "street" pieces such as coach jackets. Then we move to the shoreline, where the waves end, and the models pass over us with outfits that see the body - both male and female - covered "only" by short dresses, pants and waist bags. We now leave the sea and go higher, where the vegetation prevails, and the models parade in the middle of it. Here, the use of color is predominant: coats, bags, yellow jackets seem to blend in with the environment. Soon after, nature disappears, but the spectacular rosy sunset of the Aeolian islands is the backdrop to a catwalk characterized by garments made with innovative fabrics and special processes. The show ends by returning from where it started, on the beach, with the darkness that slowly pervades everything but illuminates the models with the last flash of warm light. Particular attention is now given to the footwear section of the collection, we see in fact that the Mono line has been expanded and we find a new slipper and a hiking sneaker.
