Inspired by animals, from snakeskin to fish scales, and the patterns of leaf veins and plants, Facchini merged his rock-goth style to create a collection of shimmering, fluid pieces. With subtle nods to sportswear too – logo cycling shorts and headbands, the odd sweatshirt – it was classic Facchini, but elevated. Silhouettes were loose and flowing, think sporty trousers and loose tops, or, when it came to evening wear, cut sensually close to the body. Manuel Facchini knows how to do sexy, but his muse is no wallflower – his glittering mini dresses are statement pieces.
Each season it becomes clearer who the Manuel Facchini woman is, and in turn, what kind of designer he is becoming. With a dark edge and a flair for the gothic, Facchini is leading the charge when it comes to redefined sexuality.
