Frankie Morello Clothing Line Inspired by Food
The fashion world has finally found a way for you to get your snack fix and not feel guilty about it.
The spring 2014 Frankie Morello menswear line recently showcased a series of shorts, suits, baseball caps, jackets, sweaters, and T-shirts all screen-printed with — you guessed it — pictures of food. The line includes items such as a T-shirt with donut and Starbucks cup graphics, a sweater emblazoned with images of sushi and another with a reproduction of Giuseppe Arcimboldo’s famous food portraits, and a sweatshirt with a print of Napoleon on a horse clutching McDonald’s french fries.
The designers Maurizio Modica and Pierfrancesco Gigliotti stated in the show notes that their collection displays that "what we eat has become a metaphor for the fashion industry, which needs more genuineness and naturalness, a slower pace, and a search for quality and pleasure." The designers took their bow at the end of the show while sporting T-shirts that read "Food 4 All," a reassuring gesture that perhaps the fashion industry is moving away from its waif-thin preferences and toward a healthier and more natural approach. Or maybe they were just hungry.
