Marcelo Burlon - Country of Milan
Marcelo Burlon is the creative mind behind the Milan-based streetwear brand Marcelo Burlon - Country of Milan. Marcelo was born in Patagonia, Argentina, but as a teenager, moved to the great Italy. In his young years in Italy, Burlon worked as an event manager and made himself known in the right circles - including the fashion industry thanks to his enthusiasm and planning of shows and parties. He has hosted for, among others, Chanel, Gucci, Raf Simons, Versace and many more.
In the year 2012, Marcelo made his first products, which still to this day are inspired and characterized by psychedelic prints that contain both the Patagonian homeland and the environment from clubs and raves. Marcelo Burlon's t-shirts and sweatshirts are the most sought after styles - enriched with patterns, symbols, culture, snakes and the iconic eagle print on the shoulders.Marcelo himself draws the iconographic elements from different cultures and creates his very own symbolism which often celebrates diversity. His graphic designs and motifs are both visually arresting and thought provoking and are intended to engage the user's imagination.
