A capsule made by sandals and flip-flops characterized by metal rings
Act N°1 is a brand founded in Italy by designers Galib Gassanoff and Luca Lin. The name has a precise meaning: it is intended to mark the first act of their life together, the moment that most inspired them in the development of the collection, whose essence is linked to the multicultural background of the designers. Each catwalk aims to express a story about the female condition and give a voice to those whose rights are not respected. For example, the ruches, the leitmotif of many of the catwalks, are a symbol of protest against child marriage. The collection for S/S 2022 is full of contaminations of garments and fabrics, accessories with metallic details, necklace-belts. Trousers sewn on printed skirts, bras, jacket/dresses, and pyjama-type trousers are the dominant items in the collection. The new shoes for the show were created for the first time as ACT N°1 x Kallisté collaboration, an Italian brand with a long tradition of footwear. The designers have “vandalised” them with metal rings to create a capsule collection consisting of sandals and flip-flops in organic Nappa, alongside sandals and ankle boots in natural Nappa.
