Strateas Carlucci unveiled its Spring/Summer 2018 lookbook, photographed and styled by Gadir Rajab. Strateas Carlucci is a creative collaboration between Australian designers Peter Strateas and Mario-Luca Carlucci. Each season, Strateas Carlucci creates collections through the concept of binary oppositions as an underlying theme in their work. By merging and colliding these opposing worlds and notions, each collection, and the work found in each collection, results in unique and uninhibited concepts.
Designing both for Men and Women, Strateas Carlucci have championed a Masculine / Feminine duality within their collections through the idea of creating a unified collection that is not driven by gender, but by a concept. Strateas Carlucci designs are focused around construction and tailoring, whilst adopting utilitarian and sportswear elements. The labels vision is to create garments that are timeless and wearable through structured and minimal styles, yet still convey a compelling story.
Fabric innovation and experimentation is a key purveyor in the Strateas Carlucci brand. Each season the brand continues to develop, yet also, reinterpret fabrics in new and challenging ways.
The aim of their Studio is to merge art and design through research and experimentation into other mediums and disciplines. Each season, it sees the studio charter into new territories and unorthodox design techniques, which results in interesting methodologies and ways of creating, constantly challenging the perception of fashion and art.
