This past June, Marcelo Burlon turned Pitti Uomo upside down with a revved-up presentation of his Spring/Summer 2015 County of Milan collection. Ramps, dirt bikes, and insane stunts supplemented the motocross-inspired range, delivering a hefty dose of street- and activewear vibes to an event typically dominated by traditional menswear.
This week, Burlon provides a closer view of his upcoming release with a solid lookbook that also illustrates the fast-paced performance theme behind his contemporary designs. Featuring a mix of professional and street-cast models, the shoot elevates the eccentric interpretation of extreme sports apparel using athletic courses and facilities as the backdrop. Guys on bikes, fields, and stadium stands don a wide selection of oversized, graphic threads that maintain Burlon’s signature tribal references and affinity for black.
The use of glow fabric and high-impact padded pieces lend a rugged yet high-tech feel to the garments, which are also accented with ombré effects, esoteric symbols, a 3D motif, and, of course, snake prints.
Check out images from the County of Milan Spring/Summer 2015 men's lookbook below. And while you wait for the collection’s official release, you can shop Burlon’s current offering at his online store.
