Andrea Cammarosano in DazedDigital

After graduating last June, Andrea Cammarosano started working for Walter van Beirendonck where he assisted in designing and curating a line of accessories, leaving him enough time to continue creating collections under his name. Focusing on the very experimental side of fashion, “because I believe that's what brings me most joy and understanding”, his last collection, 'Bury Me Standing', presented between Vienna and Arnhem, was made with great extreme. He researched the idea of clothing as 'protection' and 'identity'. Identity was represented by surreal military clothing. "This kind of clothing is extremely codified and i believe it is the ultimate language of fashion." With that, he created 6 different polyester protective cocoons that encapsulated the body and forced it in upright position.
