The experimental collection is intended for the leisure activities of Gen Z. It was compiled based on researched symptoms that define the Z members. The cornerstone thought is that Generation Z is one of the first demographies that fluently occupies the boundary between the physical and virtual world. They were the first to be born into a physical plane of existence and naturally create its digital equivalent. 

The collection asks itself a question: which type of apparel will be desirable for their lifestyle if virtuality and reality fuse into one coherent unit? All this resulted in a conception concerned with online and offline identity, transferred into a tangible visual form of clothing.

Mossy, mouldy, earthy – all these adjectives give you a very rough outline of the garments the Copenhagen-based Solitude Studios craft and sometimes even grow and ferment. Their A/W23 collection, Wood Wide Web, hints at the recently popularised notion of “mycorrhizal internet”, the sprawling matrix of mycelium that connects fungi and various members of the plant kingdom, ferrying nutrients and other kinds of “information”.
The goal of “bringing visions to life”, so essential and ubiquitous in the art world, is often hindered and challenged by compromises, most often on the technological and material side of things. But putting Susanna Pugliese's fantastical fashion sketches next to the near-identical final garments is a testament to her commitment to fulfil this goal no matter its labouriousness. Read on for the interview with the Italian-born fashion designer in possession of a wide range of artisanal skills.
