Marco de Vincenzo Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
A strong identity is important in the high fashion game, which is why Marco de Vincenzo continues to leave us puzzled. He recently celebrated 10 years in the industry yet his Fall 2019 anniversary collection was like a mish-mash of other designers' works. Everything was all-too-familiar in an almost shameless kind of way! We felt we didn't see a unique identity from him. But maybe another decade will (hopefully) bring out a new signature aesthetic? Only time can tell!

In over a decade in the industry, it seems, at least for us, that Marco de Vincenzo is still struggling to find his own distinct voice. His Fall 2019 show—his 10th-anniversary special—was too referential to other designers and their own indelible identities. For starter’s, the somber take on sparkle, especially on the sexier party looks, was very reminiscent of Marc Jacobs‘ previous tenure at Louis Vuitton. The awkward attempt of mixing occasion-wear sensibilities with a more contemporary take on bourgeoisie streetwear was clearly influenced by Riccardo Tisci‘s recent collections for Burberry. And the colorful fringed dresses were straight out of Olivier Rousteing‘s Balmain playbook. As pretty and sparkly as these looks are, it’s quite embarrassing to see how closely such outfits resemble other people’s works. Does this mean that De Vincenzo’s ten years in the field have been a sham? We hope not! But things aren’t looking good for him. Here’s to hoping he finds his own style in the next decade—if he survives, that is.
