Antique Chinese fine art and Azerbaijani craftsmanship are the focal muses behind founders Luca Lin and Galib Gassanoff’s Italian womenswear label: Act n°1.
The multicultural nature and unique biography of the brand’s creators is seamlessly woven into their apparel’s aesthetic. The designer duo’s signature style consists of contrasting nostalgic tradition and ethnic ‘90s subculture, such as incorporating oriental watercolour landscape prints on quilted robes and deconstructed predominantly PVC silhouettes. Their line features cinched and ruched silk and suede dresses and jumpsuits, chic bomber jackets, hoodies and embellished accents.
Act n°1 won the 2017 edition of ‘Who is On Next?’ organised by Vogue Italia and Alta Roma, one of Italy’s most sought after prizes for young designers. Their first collection Resort 2017 has been presented during White Show Milan and also selected by Vogue Italia to open the SS 2017 Vogue Talent Corner at Milan Fashion Week 2016.
