Roman, astigmatic and left-handed is how Fabio Quaranta describes himself. The FQR artistic project is entirely Italian – created in Rome to be exact. In his atelier he aims at hosting different creative experiments that are not necessarily focused only on fashion. His collections develop a total, no-frills, linear and metropolitan look that is tied to fashion and yet not bound by its rules. The special treatment that Fabio Quaranta uses on the skins and fabrics in his men’s collection springs from a customized and limited edition of All Star sneakers. It is based essentially on three materials: fustian, tweed and fleece and the use of two colors on jackets, cashmere sweaters and footwear. The unexpected and underground culture is evident in his creations from the contemporary narrative and graphic arts to fashion business. This is FQR.
