Inspired by the multitude of colours found at the markets in Marrakech, one of the most vibrant cities in the world, combined with his illustrious Italian style, Angelo Galasso presents his colour choices for SS15.

The fashion designer has chosen dramatic shades and exquisite silk materials that draw the eye, including bold midnight blues, crystal-clear turquoise and glossy amaranth pink in items that are perfect for warm, spring nights, whether it be on the streets of Marrakech, at grand hotels, beach-side restaurants or late-night cocktail bars.

Polished gold detailing and sober fittings offer a perfect balance for the strong colour scheme, giving the wearer a relaxed yet exclusive and luxurious look. However, Angelo has also chosen to include more subtle, yet equally as iconic pieces such as the creamy ivory-coloured jacket with blue-lined pockets and masculine dark leather accessories.

Defined as the "Da Vinci of the shirt" by the Financial Times, Angelo Galasso started his revolution in the 90's with Interno 8, the shirt dedicated brand that in a few years seduced Italy and famous artists like Paul McCartney, Roger Moore and the Italian, Alessandro Gassman.

"A timeless creation" is how London Design Museum describes the Polso Orologio shirt, which was exhibited in the Britain design temple in 2004. Creator and pioneer of Billionaire Italian Couture in Britain's capital in 2005, in 2009 Angelo Galasso realised his dream and launched the eponymous brand, with flagship stores in London, Milan, Moscow and New York.
