Roberto Piqueras perfectly epitomizes the punk-meets-’90s revival happening on the streets of London, NYC and Tokyo. His creations are a mind-blowing acid trip packed with psychedelic collages, pop symbols (the Mercedes logo is back!), color blitzes, and basic photoshop interventions. Season after season, he has created this personal fantasy world where illusion is everything.
In an attempt to enhance an unisex feel to his collections, Piqueras doesn’t differentiate between menswear and womenswear. Leggings, shorts, oversized tees and dresses are for both wardrobes celebrating androgynous silhouettes through sportswear codes.
But what makes Piqueras so special is his irreverent attitude. In an industry where museum’s galleries have became a new form of convention center, he invaded the British Museum for his SS 13 unauthorized presentation, with an impromptu performance which included only 15 models walking down alleys and stairways. They were all wearing his futuristic pieces in front of visitors and security guards, creating a new type of flash mob and proving that creativity more important than money.
