The brand Dima LEU celebrates its fifth anniversary during the Milan fashion week. After its debut in January, Dima LEU is coming back with WOOL ONLY, the fashion film that tells the story of the collaboration with the Marzotto group.
On February 25th, National Chamber of the Italian Fashion’s digital platform hosted the presentation of the new collection of DIMA LEU, the fashion designer of Moldovan origin but naturalized Italian since the age of 15.
The collaboration with the Marzotto group is an encounter between innovation and tradition, an experimentation that starts from the study of the fabric that the designer considers the most human, primordial and resilient, wool.
The possibilities are endless. The versatility that the Italian textile group’s fabric of excellence offers is extraordinarily inspiring. A collection designed to last beyond transitional fashion trends.
With the intention of celebrating this generational reunion and paying homage to the archives, WOOL ONLY, directed by Mihael Kacic, is entirely filmed in the group’s historical production headquarters in Valdagno, Veneto. The aim is to present the finished product there where the fabric first sees the light of day.
It is exactly the concept of infinity, which is also captured in a hand-drawn motif on a garment in the collection, that expresses the perception of DIMA LEU that starting from the artisanal knowledge of the past, intends to land in a future of a thousand possibilities.
The treatments and washes of the garments make the wool even softer, more comfortable and enveloping around the body.
An intentional focus on menswear in the women’s season manifests the desire to break down the boundaries between the two worlds.
Winter tones such as classic navy blue, brown, black and forest green mix with bright red and optical white. Working with wool allows for a knack for original color combinations.
Tailored creations with little volumes and experimental revers meet the six final models of DIMA LEU HOMME, with floral headpieces designed by the artist Meital Kats Minerbo.
Pure surrealism that has as its soundtrack a vibrant song from the 70s by Maria Sole, a further tribute to the context of the factory and the Italian spirit.
