The imagined and exotic influences what is found in the everyday, inspired by a conversation between creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli and artist Roger Dean.
Traveling is certainly a physical activity, but it truly enlightens and enriches when it takes the form of a free-flowing, borderless meandering of the mind. Travelers who go on journeys within the realm of their own minds are capable of transcending boundaries to reach the elsewhere, expanding possibilities and imagining utopias.
As signs and traces of different cultures mingle and flow in a sartorial present that makes everything possible, an exotic utopia materializes. Differences come together and everything finds a meaning - another meaning, with an unexpected significance - in the dialogue with the other.
Utopias have the power to shape what is not there, and are charged with the urge to make it happen. The elsewhere is made possible.
