Marcelo Burlon County of Milan

fall/winter 15/16 backstage

It was the return of Marcelo Burlon, succeeding with his F/W 2015/16 show of County of Milan. Darkness and gauchos came out stomping, tapping, clapping and dancing their Malambo style, swinging their boleadoras aka balls to exude their folkloric passion.

The Patagonian brought it home and presented his sports/street wear gear by keeping to his animalistic prints adding more leathers and also showcasing the 'Space Gaucho' pieces. (For those who are not familiar with the gaucho term — it's the argentine cowboy.) The backstage atmosphere made some of the 1994 lyrics of "Space Cowboy" come alive and the air was filled with inter-planetary good vibes.
