Born and raised in Milan, Gilberto Calzolari, son of a fabrics salesman and store manager for high-end boutiques, has breathed fashion since childhood, enthralled by the collections that walked the runway during the golden years of Italian ready-to-wear. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, and began an impressive career in the fashion industry working for the most prestigious luxury brands in Italy. He soon became a senior designer, developing a strong penchant for dresses and flou. In 2015, Calzolari decided to create his own brand, and registered his trademark. The logo – two intertwined ginkgo leaves around the initials GC, combining Japanese elements with an art nouveau-inspired emblem – mirrors his idea of style: a brand rooted in the Milanese tradition of luxury, and yet drawing inspiration from wide-ranging suggestions, in a contemporary aesthetic characterised by a mixture of opposites. His first capsule collection Fall/Winter 2017-2018, entitled “My Arctic Heart”, walked the runway during Milan Fashion Week, and with these
last two collections Gilberto Calzolari confirms the excellence and exclusivity typical of luxury Made in Italy, against the prevailing tyranny of today’s fast fashion.
