In the mood of Marcel Marongiu: "The word ‘luxury’ doesn’t mean anything anymore"

Posted on

Relaxnews: What is the signature piece of this Spring/Summer 2014 collection?
Marcel Marongiu: The signature piece: a white shirt! A woman is never as sexy and sensual as she is when wearing an article of “her man’s” clothing. Other than that, the pieces in silk/polyamide, which are not sewn but assembled by fusion.

R: What personality, historical or contemporary, could wear every piece from your new collection?
 Cate Blanchett and Eleanor of Aquitaine.

R: A film, an image, or a sound: what would best represent the spirit of your new collection?
 Béatrice Dalle in [the film] “Betty Blue,” when she throws all of her lover’s belongings out the window.

R: If you could give Cara Delevingne a new look, what would you propose?
 Cara Delevingne? Nothing. I don’t find her interesting at all!

R: If you could design the costumes for a film adaptation of a well-known work of art, which would you choose?
Visconti’s “The Damned.”

R: How do you think the luxury and fashion industries will evolve over the coming years?
 The word luxury doesn’t mean anything anymore. Neither does the word fashion… There are brands, stylists and designers. All it takes to be a brand is advertising. Luxury brands hire stylists to “bring back” certain styles (1950s, 60s, 70s, 80s, punk). The true designers are seen as out of style. And the young can get away with anything… Today, human beings are lazy, they feel comfortable if they don’t have to think or question themselves. And fashion is not an exception. Music and art are in the same predicament. The only evolution possible would be a return of real values: real design, craftsmanship, and individuality.
