Brandazza cycling-inspired fashion show

Manuel Brandazza is a designer from Argentina. This was sort of a comeback show for him because he quitted making clothes about five years ago. The show was done at Parque Thays, a big park near Retiro station that hosts a huge Botero sculpture of a naked torso, which added a classic and strangely decadent feel to the show. As you see, the clothes mix very different fabrics and textures and feature geometric and symmetric designs that often resolve in sort of a demonic face from a manga hell. It's astronaut chic with tribal designs: the kind of clothes that the musicians from the Sun Ra Arkestra or the characters in a science fiction utopia would wear. All Brandazza clothes have an otherworldly quality to them. This collection was inspired by cycling. These are vintage/future/alien cycling and living clothes.

Then, ambient pop artist Aldo Benítez played some tunes. Just him, his mic and his boom box...

Hey! How come I was in BA and never heard of Manuel Brandazza?! It seems like he is a genious that can make any kind of style look hot and trendy. I think there is something about Argentine designers, they have an acute eye for fashion. I rented an apartment in buenos aires  and met this girl who was a designer that lived in the same building I was staying at. I loved the clothing she wore, it made her attributes stand out!
