NEW TALENT: Dennj Malaguti, the bizarre shapes of clouds


There are young designers able to translate dreams and vision with simplicity and sophistication. Discover "HUMO", the first capsule collection by Dennj Malaguti.


DENNJ MALAGUTI is 29 years old. He is nice, gentle and with a special look in his face, halfway between a dreamy kid and a self-confident and man. 

Coming from San Matteo della Decima, a small village in the middle of the Emilia-Romagna countryside, Dennj have found his vocation for fashion design after long series of jobs in different fields, deciding to move to Milan to attend at Haute Future Fashion Academy

Of the province, he re-discovers and glorifies the slow rhythms, the sartorial precision and uniqueness, condensing ancient knowledge with a cosmopolitan eye.

I met him there, where he was my student of History of Fashion. A curious student, almost anxious to know how much possible about ancient costumes, garment constructions and details. His final thesis was about the evolution of sleeves and I clearly can recognize the long research he made in his first collection.

I want to present HUMO (from the Spanish word for smoke).

HUMO is “round”. It's as soft as circular spirals of smoke can be. With voluptuous, concentric and perfect curls, it dresses and at the same time redesigns the feminine body: armours/dresses for gentle soldiers/women, like chrysalis’ cocoons; dresses in which women can feel like butterflies.

The result is a collection for every woman, to be lived and layered, because HUMO forms a precious and unique wardrobe that can be assembled many times, made out of all-natural organzas and fibres like cotton, linen and silk.  His dresses are to be stratified, reinvented daily – for fast-paced, unconventional women.

HUMO is Dennj inspecting the sky as a kid, looking for that elephant-shaped cloud. And for the one shaped like a crane, the one shaped like a rhino. Bizarre, yet noble shapes. Dennj fuses the extraordinary within the everyday.
