SELF MADE X Sergio Tacchini
Milan, 22nd of June 2018. The historic Italian sportswear brand Sergio Tacchini walks the Paris runway with a mini capsule created in collaboration with SELF MADE by Gianfranco Villegas.
The collection's garments are taken from the historic Tacchini archive, completely "restructured" with oversize volumes and graphic interventions which change their personality without distorting it.
A few models feature a patchwork of fabric inserts with sentences, mottoes and aphorisms linked to sportswear. Words are directly embroidered onto items, transforming garments into a mix of Italian detail and streetwear and hip hop culture from the American and Filipino world. Embroidery is a distinctive trait of the Self Made brand, impeccably blended with quintessential artisan quality which distinguishes all garments in the collection.
T-shirts draw inspiration from the 90s Tacchini archive, culminating in large geometric graphics which play on the union of both brand logos.
The main colours are classic white, black and the characteristic Self Made orange, coupled with decisive colour interventions for T-shirt prints.
The iconic Sergio Tacchini Young Line double stripe is reproduced on the tracktop, revisited with piping, ribbon, zig-zag embroidery, which evokes the Line, as well as satin stitch. The iconic Sergio Tacchini logo is proposed in embroidery, seamlessly combined with the Self Made logo in cornely technique.
The capsule also includes typical accessories from the tennis world, such as wristbands and the terry headband.
