16Arlington RTW Spring 2024

White, black, blood red, gray, sanitary blue, teal and soft pink told the story of Marco Capaldo’s spring 2024 collection, which took cues from David Lynch’s 1997 surrealist neo-noir “Lost Highway.”

“What really inspired me more than even the film itself was this idea of dreams and reality and creating something where you have to almost do a double take,” Capaldo said following his show.

The first look, an open white shirt paired with a pencil skirt made out of large clear sequins and a white clay-like handbag set the tone for the elegantly clinical show.

The simple uniform dresses had a simple edge to them by way of a scrunch at the hem; a scissor slit at the chest, and creases that captured the curves of the body.

Capaldo played with color by layering fabrics on top of each other: In one case, it was white feathers under red vinyl.

This was the brand’s sophomore men’s outing, which was as equally compelling as the womenswear. Tailored leather jackets; a tucked vinyl bomber jacket, and a long-sleeve polo with an elongated collar were among the monochrome looks.

The designer has found his footing in day-to-night separates and compelling color, yielding his most tasteful and cohesive collection to date.
