For the SS18 Luca Larenza pushes the perimeters of sportswear towards the dream. He restructures, materially and conceptually, the two passe-partout of the male wardrobe. Dismantle the centaur
jacket and blend it with the light bomber of the nineties. This explains why the outerwear of the SS18 has padded-like sleeves, as the biker tradition dictates. But the jacket by Luca Larenza today recreates the optical suggestion of the padding through a soft white
cotton knit, worked in three-dimensional stitches and whose ribbed couplings form intersects of pattern. The calf skin is left on the front and back of the bomber, also becoming a quote from the American
high school culture thanks to the blue-pop, green and cream. In the knitwear sector there are the inlaid patterns created on ultra light anti-peeling cotton.
It is a celebration of the aesthetic stylistic features of David Lynch's surrealism. The sharp peaks and lakes of Twin Peaks overlap, while the famous zig zag motifs are used to fill the silhouettes of palm
trees extrapolated this time from the Los Angeles of Mulholland Drive. The shades of blue, from Navy to pale celestial, also appear in pastel pink, red lipstick or green forest. T-shirts and sweatshirts aspire to become prototypes of a sportswear designed to be treated
in detail. Thus the jersey is enriched with terry patches, knitted yarns of Lisle Thread or thermal printed prints. Another news in the Luca Larenza’s collection is the unstructured denim trousers,
designed to be an extension of the brand's easy-chic philosophy. And so the fitting becomes non-constricting, high-waisted and with a drawstring fastening for both ankle-length trousers and shorts.
