Fashion Who Is On Next? UOMO 2010

Lightness, strength and simplicity join hands with a passion for shape and surfaces. With a degree in architecture and interior design Andrea Incontri acquired considerable experience in consulting and design, in leather goods with Fratelli Rossetti, in textiles with Pontoglio 1883 and in decorative objects with Alessi. His leather goods are containers with multiple purposes, but they are also sartorial structures – unlined and resin-coated inside. The materials, buffalo and stamped calfskin bring a new concept in classicism inspired by Italian styles of the 1950s. When he designs a bag, Andrea Incontri also designs a way of using it – a lifestyle in which the accessory is not a status symbol but an attitude, an iconic element that enhances the movements and personality of the man who wears it.
