ABBRACCIAMI means ‘hug me’ in Italian and is dedicated to the designer’s father. This deeply personal collection explores the relationship between a typical Southern Italian man, who showed his love by fulfilling his duties while remaining somewhat cold and distant, and his gay son.
The knot appears as a unifying motif throughout the collection and represent the struggle of a father and son confronting their differences and eventually, finding peace with each other by tying a bow. Trincone has harnessed his emotions to construct a passionate, personal, and creative collection.
