Energie was born out of the desire to create something new, different and original. The brand name was originally inspired by a clothing store in Rome; a place for early 80's art and culture, where several artists worked together to create exhibitions. Forever focused on experimentation, research and continuous innovation, the label now includes footwear and bags, an underwear and beachwear collection and, since 2009, a new line of Energie opticals and sunglasses.
Energie is an innovative brand that does not follow established trends and is always focused on the selection of quality materials, advance treatments and production techniques. Denim is a fabric that allows for experimentation and is key to all of the Energie collections. Research, new treatments, premium fabrics and experimental washes give the garments the well-worn features and "tough" personality that have always characterized the world of Energie.
New York Style, a return to the history of denim essence for the 2011 Fall / Winter Energie collection.
The canvass, expression of the brand's identity, becomes a kaleidoscopic focus with versions ranging from skinnier to more comfy fittings, enriched by several washes and original details.
The neatness of the ergonomic shapes and the minimalism of the details predominate in the Slim and Regular-Slim offers, making models like CLOD, MITT, LASER and TRUST really unique.
LEGEND and RULY are instead the new offers for Men wearing more relaxed outfits without hiding their clear and determined style, underlined by three-dimensional inserts and geometrical applications. "American Vintage" taste for colours inspired by the shades of New York autumn days, from the mustards and reds of Central Park tress to the intense light blues of Manhattan skies. The technical fabrics of the outerwear take on a "workers" look thanks to the research on the treatments; warm cashmere patterns appear instead for the knitwear.
Great attention to the graphics of the t-shirts which play between past and future, going from the blurred comics superheroes like Flash Gordon and Wonder Woman to x-ray ironic visions of the world. Upper East Side moods instead of garments representing the sublimation of denim which encounters preppy styles, for a sophisticated metropolitan taste.
The fittings become slimmer, close fitting, while materials double to give depth to structured and daring garments designing a modern and captivating silhouette. Protagonists of this line are men who take their own way among the Big Apple's Skyscrapers, wearing enveloping outerwear which hides rigorous patterns and impeccable micro-pattern shirts. Wide neckline knits comfortably underline the figure, enhancing it in with continuous play-on juxtapositions.
The 11 FW Energie Collection thus interprets the city which has always represented the universal symbol of Metropolis, New York. Still dreaming today, and still making people dream.
