An alien angel at the fashion show by Bartolotta & Martorana for the fall/winter 2019-20 ready-to-wear collection




The delicate cosmic girls imagined by Bartolotta & Martorana bring the colors of the galaxies to the catwalk, in a mature, refined and powerful fall/winter 2019-2020 collection.


For a couple of years now I follow the stylistic adventures of these two young designers of Sicilian origin. I interviewed them and I had the great pleasure of attending all their last shows. But this time something has changed. A small, imperceptible transformation that is bringing these two creatives in the right direction of a ready-to-wear that sometimes borders on the grandeur of the Haute Couture.

The fall/winter 2019-20 fashion show of BARTOLOTTA & MARTORANA, once again organized thanks to the support of A Coded World and presented during Milan Fashion Week, was a real pleasure for the eyes and the mind.

The inspiration of Simone and Salvatore comes from a million miles away, in terms of space and time. From unknown worlds lost among the galaxies, from the luminous and fluorescent flashes created by the supernova explosions, from the vivid colors of the nebulae that we could only admire from the Hubble telescope. The creative duo gave life to a cosmic girl halfway between an angel and an alien, an imaginary woman powerful, determined, refined and delicate at the same time.

Very beautiful are the shaded and abstract prints in the nuances of precious gems, which make vaguely romantic the cocktail and evening dresses characterized by their beloved overlaps of flounces and by the fluid volumes of the bias-cut skirts. As well as the very spot-on electric blue, in combination with pink for the suits and the ecological furs with galactic shades, or used alone, for the dresses in tulle and cady.

Are very pleasant and absolutely wearable the dresses and suits in white, blue and black with color-block effect inspired by the world of fitness or the spacesuits with a vaguely retro feel, that our human imagination has always attributed to sci-fi explorers.

Fresh and modern is the lime color used for the adherent Seventies-style suits, the cocktail dresses in satin and the tight-fitting sheath dresses, suddenly opened by asymmetrical cuts that leave a glimpse of the models’ body.

Is surprisingly interesting the psychedelic version of their logo with geometric pattern on a black background, which becomes an all-over print for young outfits and evening dresses, or their maxi logo printed on the cotton sweatshirts combined to the cropped trousers underlined by spherical metal details,    that the designers use also as for the showy chocker necklaces and bracelets, the beautiful lunar-shaped bags made with iridescent or metallized PVC.

Decorations that become spherical stars and planets in the nocturnal firmament, decorating the bodices of dresses and suits characterized by the unusual, but effective combination of a romantic tulle skirts and a chic street-style sweatshirt.

Are always captivating the embroideries in silicone that have become the leitmotif of their collections, but that now are even more precise and refined, so much to build the ramified structures of arabesques that just cover the naked body between layers of fluorescent tulle or the long fringes that decor the sensual and elegant black dresses. Just as is fascinating and dark the total black of the Grand Soirée quilted dress.

The sparkles of the starry night and the thousand suns of our universe are magical, transformed into embroideries and fringes of black, iridescent, bronze or dark gold sequins for the rich cocktail dresses and evening suits.

The hi-tech-style dress in rigid tulle and the majestic cloud of frills in black organza have deserved an ovation thanks to their fluorescent edges reminiscent of elliptical orbits of unreachable planets, as was also for the overwhelmingly fascinating use of fluorescent quilted fabrics for the evening dresses, which catch the eye and don’t let it go anymore.
