Milan, Italy – A multitude of color, military chic and a touch of pop art is what we’ll see in the work for Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 at Iceberg.
The parka, cargo pants and the Eisenhower are renewed with the energetic usage of color. The influences of pop art, modern art and the 1980’s are used to create bold prints and patchworks. The silhouettes are graced with experimental fabric panels. The shapes are boxy with clear, straight lines. The details are also sharp. The straight lines are in color blocks and on the pockets. And the pop influences appear as portraits of illustrious Disney names like Mickey Mouse.
Texture has always been an obsession at Iceberg. Here we find lots of wools, denims and technical fabrics. Also worthy of note are the Iceberg branded shoes.
The coats and jackets are deconstructed and the pants are roomy. They are also formed in shiny satin. Some sets recall of the contemporary, artsy street wear from Japan. This is particularly true with the sweatshirts, bomber jackets and knitwear. The work looks modern and crisp. The multicoloured details excite the eye of the observer. The accessories used in the collection are sneakers, hats, scarfs, belts and beanies.
The work is certain to catch the interest of Asian costumers.
