Cabinet works on the world of formalwear that has undergone countless changes in society and common culture over the years. In fact, the new generations visually witness the dissolution of social roles and, consequently, also the change in the aesthetics of the same wardrobe. The new workwear represents the individual in its total wholeness, and in its relationship between leisure and work. Dress was conceived as a three-piece ensemble, wrapped in the rhetoric and cliché of male work productivity. Women have been beginning to appropriate this aesthetic since the 1980s. Cabinet wants to reconstruct the sense of formal dress that is now concealed by trends, investigates identity and the definition of the person through colors and fabrics that look to the future and leave behind archaic rules.
“In the manner of a Meisner conversation, the dialogue entre deux between Tanya and Rossana becomes a tangible series of alternation on pre-existing suits, in order to make each one unique, and truly fitted ad personam.”
In the new entre deux project, the starting point is precisely the elements of Cabinet, which, borrowed from vintage clothing, allow a process of modification and alteration to be brought to life for each individual piece. What already exists is rethought and shaped according to the wills and desires of the person. The goal is precisely to realize a new expression of the garment that fits the individual perfectly, not only in shape and cut, but also in color, material, and, more generally, attitude.The practical development in the work is clearly done on the basis of dialogue and needs, in a precise and meticulous manner. The conversation in fact entre deux turns out to be fundamental and central in the evolution toward the final result.
