During men’s fashion week in Milan, the De Carlo gallery in via Porta Nuova hosted the first presentation of a menswear collection by young Brazilian designer of Italian origin, Jonathan Scarpari. A chemistry graduate who went on to attend Istituto Marangoni in Milan, in 2013 Jonathan set up his own brand, which stands out for refined leatherwork, often raw cut, and which is an important part of his collection, with shapes and essential geometries as well as sculpted cuts. His scientific training influences his approach to fashion, which involves working on proportions based on precise mathematical ratios. His clothing is constructed by subtraction, in order to create essential forms, expertly crafted by artisans from the great Italian sartorial tradition. The leitmotif of the brand is a three-dimensional weave in leather, inspired by a chemical molecule. Another important feature is the reference to the world of mechanics, which can also be seen in the resistant, robust fabrics, brand new lengths, and in the important shapes of the shoes, inspired by technical footwear, as worn by welders.
