A KALTBLUT exclusive menswear editorial. Photography by Kamisalak. Model is Bruno Unikowsky Rangel. All fashion by The B. A fashion brand by Federico Barrazzo. Born on the 30th of November of 1992 in Rome, Italy. After finishing High school in liceo scientifico, Convitto Nazionale in Rome, he completes his education at IED of Rome, getting a degree in Fashion Styling. Not being able to limit his creative tendecies to just one profession, he commits to a new personal project as Fashion Designer, which takes full form in 2011, while starting his education and experience as Fashion Stylist. Since 2013 he’s been collaborating as Stylist Assistant of Marco Grisolia, while at the same time working as a freelance Stylist.
Born from the will to build a unique styling concept, that fully portraits the Designer’s identity, The B. combines the outstanding value of made in Italy and the classic handicraft of “Bel Paese”, with influences from other Lands of the World in research and innovation.
Each collection emerges from a phase of deep research, which then explodes with the power of sensations. The silhouettes and volumes, of different natures, are kept together by clean and linear cut and by different palettes of color, from season to season; all of which defines the sobriety of the Brand.
After the launch, the succession of the collections has shown the ever growing maturity of The B. as a affirmed Brand. Since Fall-Winter 2013-2014 the creations have been enriched by accessories; then the first pieces of male clothing started coming into view. At the moment The B. counts womenswear, menswear and a line of accessories.
In conclusion the real focus of the Brand is marked by a mix of figures that compose a new “dressing” idea: menswear and womanswear in fact, often meet, almost blending and give birth to unique unisex pieces. It’s this fusion that gives great versatility to the creations together with the explicitly geometric cuts, the minimal approach and the aesthetic synthesis.
