Designer Christian Pellizzari presents the Men’s Fall 2021 titled My Home as a Temple in Milan.
Defiant Italian design meets a maximalist aesthetic in the Christian Pellizzari for Autumn/Winter 2021 presented in Milan at Camera Moda.
“My house is my temple, my own little planet where I am sure I come back to myself, everyday.”Christian Pellizzari
The collection explained by Pellizzari
“So the comfy house look is now made with Italian wool with countryside feeling from the traditional sartorial heritage to keep us warm and protected inside or outside home.”
“The idea of a blanket worn when you go outside with the same feeling of protection that you have when you’re in bed.”
“The bathrobe style translates in the new oversize coat with belt, made with sustainable and recyclable blended casentino wool. The Furlane slippers are made with casentino original wool too or with eco animalier fur. The pyjamas are in viscose jacquard animalier prints for an inside/outside look or in jersey check wool.”
He was already aware of his vocation as a child: he knew that his destiny was to be a fashion designer.
After completing high school, he moved to Florence to attend the Polimoda institute, where he took a diploma as a fashion designer with a specialisation in pattern making. Returning to Italy after a six-month internship in London, he worked with Tonello, flanking the founder in making patterns and creating samples: it was here that Christian started cultivating a real passion for outerwear.
2006 was then the year when he turned over a new leaf: he moved to Paris to work with Vionnet for a year. In 2007, he joined Jay Ahr as creative director, remaining there until 2010. In 2011, he presented his first capsule collection in a small venue in the vicinity of Colette.
In 2013, he reached the finals of the competition Who is on Next?, promoted by Vogue Italia, and in 2014 was chosen by Giorgio Armani as an up-and-coming hopeful of Italian fashion to show his proposals for women’s wear in a show at the Armani Theatre.
In 2015, he was a finalist in the prestigious international Woolmark Prize competition for young talents.
