AltaRoma sheds its skin during its coldest edition. Frescos of Borgo Santo spirito are far away. Now there is the temporary frame tent, put close to the auditorium and the profane walls of the MAXXI contemporary gallery, to screen out the Rome Fashion Week. The cover is maybe different, but the content has not changed at all. For 2015 Winter , AltaROma promotes once again innovative collections by both young designers and graduands from Fashion Accademies.
The young talents from the Accademia di Costume e Moda have left their mark. It is a strong mark, which drafts the silhouette of the new man.
Now man leaves from formal to go beyond streetwear and sportswear, so as to demolish all genre barriers.

For Margherita Feliciangeli blazer is the cult garment. Classic and sartorial on one hand, transgressive on the other. Turning the blazer inside out will be enough to discover “Under the jacket” tatoo prints.
Silvia Stefanucci (the winner in the accessory contest) has a punk soul. With the “Plastic N°5″ collection, she puts on the catwalks the matter of recycling.
Combinable pockets of several dimensions are moved from (high) boots to bags and backpacks, all made of both precious leather and trash bags. What a winning move!
