Marco Giugliano and Nicolò Bologna took top honors at this year’s eighth edition of Italy’s Who Is On Next, the young talent competition set up by Italian Vogue and Altaroma during the Roman couture week. The pair accepted their prize after the finalist show on Saturday in Rome for their Marcobologna collection (pictured), featuring simple shapes in pop-style prints of gems, flamingos, martinis, and fireworks. “These clothes are for funny girls with a sense of humor who enjoy life, but aren’t necessarily sex bombs,” Giugliano, who has worked for Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, and Versace, told Style.com. Bologna, for his part, spent several years with Strenesse. They began Marcobologna a year and a half ago and will do a presentation during Milan fashion week in September.
Yoox.com, a sponsor of the event, gave its award to Suzanne Susceptible, by Korean designer Soo Cha Jung, who worked for Costume National and Dirk Bikkembergs before she launched her own brand. Jung’s colorful checkerboard collection, which is made in Italy, will be available on Yoox.com in September. Giancarlo Petriglia, a Trussardi alum, won the Who Is On Next accessories prize for his namesake collection of bags in nappa leather and bleached python. In addition, Charline de Luca by Carlotta de Luca was given a special mention for her architecturally constructed multistrap footwear, as did Conspiracy, Gianluca Tamburini’s collection of jewelry-studded footwear.
