Description
Marcelo Burlon's County of Milan Fall 2019 Menswear line has us divided. While the sleeker ensembles gave us an optimistic perspective on the evolution of Burlon's underground 90s-styled aesthetic, his overuse of neon colors and overly saturated animal prints still make his clothes a tad too tacky!

What would a rave in an abandoned amusement park look like? Marcelo Burlon answered this very question with his latest Fall 2019 Menswear collection. Here, he gathered up elements from stylish 90s underground tropes and repurposed them into more mainstream and slightly more refined streetwear currency. But what resulted was perhaps one of the more perplexing Marcelo Burlon County of Milan collections in recent memory. On one hand, this was a less severe outing than usual, as the flow of looks, while maximalist and electric in their own right, had a sort of elegance to them that was much more approachable than in seasons past. Finely made leather jackets and tailored separates made for desirable pieces that are bound to fascinate a few fans and earn some new ones come fall. But the overwhelming injection of psychedelic animal prints and neon hues still prove to be a bit too much. Once more, they relegated what would have been a sophisticated offering into another gimmicky rehashing of 1990s style tropes. It was like we were all on acid when looking at the collection. But instead of an ecstatic high, we felt more confused than ever before! Still, this was a commendable pared-down attempt on Burlon’s part, and on that noteat least for nowhe deserves to get some credit!
