FW Milan: “Sensitive Body” by ALESSANDRO VIGILANTE


Passion, craftsmanship, and audacity describe the trajectory of Alessandro Vigilante, born in 1982 and originally from Puglia, where fashion and dance, the quintessence of his inspiration and expressive language, are consistently intertwined. After finishing high school, he turned his passion for dance into a career, becoming a professional dancer. He developed his knowledge of contemporary dance at this time by studying ideas like deconstruction, stasis, and movement that he eventually included in his collections, as well as cutting-edge techniques like those developed by Merce Cunningham.

Without ever giving up dancing, he made the shift to fashion in 2003 and put the same dedication into his studies at the IED in Milan, where he eventually won the two Vogue-sponsored competitions “My Own Way” and “My Own Show.”

Alessandro Vigilante changed his focus to fashion design after making his debut in Milan as one of the young, up-and-coming designers selected by Franca Sozzani. He spent seven years at Dolce & Gabbana before working with Alessandro Michele at Gucci in Rome and then returning to Milan for the Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini project. His ambition to express his own unique sense of femininity and style was sparked by his intense and gratifying professional progress, which led to the creation of the ALESSANDRO VIGILANTE brand, which was unveiled with the ACT I Collection.

Alessandro Vigilante’s FW23 Collection

It’s a Sensitive Body for ALESSANDRO VIGILANTE’s ACT VI, FW23 Collection. He continues his exploration of the body in motion. It is a body that feels, that is open to listening to itself, and that is adept at capturing every shift in movement, even imperceptible ones. It is a body that breathes and that moves even when standing still.

The collection retraces the brand’s signature traits: masculine tailoring offset by hyper-feminine garments characterised by graphic cut-outs; precision that embraces eroticism; clean lines; sculptural shapes made of technical materials such as scuba; sheer fabrics used for corsetry; relaxed silhouettes and shapes that cling to the body like a second skin; and the ever-present natural vegan rubber that has been a source of intense fascination for the creative director since the first season.

Act VI Colour Palette

The colour palette, true to the established cornerstones of black, ivory, and light pink, is refreshed by the inclusion of cornflower blue, citrus yellow, and olive green.

The thermography-inspired print on stretch panné velvet is another first for the brand.

Midi lengths alternate with vertiginous minis, new this season, paired with maxi bomber jackets in wool tailoring or padded wet nylon.

The looks are complemented by the Sylvie Loafer and the Sylvie thigh-high boots, a nod to the famous dancer Sylvie Guillem, known for her extraordinary talents.

The toe box is elongated and punctuated by a toe tip in contrasting material. The loafer is made of mesh or PVC, while the thigh-high boot is made of soft stretch leather.
