The Sylvio Giardina AW11 collection looks inspired by the whole comic-book world, with accents that range from villainous undertones to superherolike insignias.

The Sylvio Giardina AW11 collection was actually inspired by something more intangible and abstract. It's a study in new silhouettes, focusing on the imbalance of shapes, volumes and cuts. More than that, however, this line draws from a new female identity, one that expresses all facets including male and female, fashion and art.

Drawing on the culture of Italian high tailoring, the Sylvio Giardina AW11 collection blends these influences with a futuristic touch that brings an avant-garde, sculptural essence to each design. I especially like the Plexiglas buckles and belts.
