EXCLUSIVE: DEPARTMENT FIVE X ANTONIA
IN YOUR PANTS
Antonia and Department Five are kicking off 2018 with a bang. In conjunction with Milan Men’s Fashion Week, the Italian fashion brand unveiled a limited-edition capsule of its most iconic men’s trousers, the David and the Prince, revisited in exclusive for Antonia. They will be unveiled with a special window installation starting on January 13th.
In three color variants - blue, beige and military green – the trousers feature contrasting inner belts in yellow, orange and wine red, complete with the wording "Department Five ❤︎ Antonia".
The partnership celebrates the brand’s longstanding and successful relationship with the Antonia boutique.
Founded in 2007 by Nicola Silvagni and Mario Cangini, Department Five is the fruit of their longstanding friendship, an authentic story with a common style vision, a free-spirited wit and a deep fashion culture.
In 1977, Cangini opened Space Number Five, a multi-brand boutique in Milano Marittima whose ground-breaking mix included vintage pieces and forward-leaning designers such Azzedine Alaïa, Montana, Kenzo, Thierry Mugler, Jean Paul Gaultier and Comme des Garçons. Its unique vibe attracted Silvagni, a young music and fashion fan, who soon became part of the Space team.
Three decades later, the duo launched Department Five with the intent to create functional pieces, infused with military and utility references, a rock twist and the latest trends.
