To visit Penelope Sposa is a pleasant ritual for me which takes place every time I am in Brescia. This cathedral of conceptual fashion, created by the one and only Roberta Valentini is focused on the bridal gowns and also hosts marvelous accessories. It’s the lightness, elegance, a wide showcase celebrates the sophistication and harmony of signs that talks about demi-couture and high fashion where it shines a wise craftsmanship. That is evidenced by the creations made by the Norway fashion designer Leila Hafzi, embodying a wonderful hand-embroidered lace, along with the ones by a bright creative working in the realm of bridal fashion, Coco Ochwada, who established the brand Everly and a name which evokes an age, the Eighties and it is impressed in my memory, Sybilla, the genius Spanish fashion, who marked those times (and I am pleased she started again to create). My awesome afternoon interlude at Penelope ended with a headonism moment which featured the head accessories and hats, some of those come from the Penelope archives, iconic masterpieces evidencing the cult of elegance which is here impressed and makes Penelope what it is, a cathedral.

UN RITUALE, LA MIA VISITA DA PENELOPE SPOSA

Visitare Penelope Sposa è per me un piacevole ritual che ha luogo ogni qual volta mi trovo a Brescia. Questa cattedrale di moda concettuale, creata dalla sola e unica Roberta Valentini è dedicate agli abiti da sposa e ospita anche meravigliosi accessori. Eleganza e levità, un’ ampia rassegna celebra la raffinatezza e armonia di segni, che parlano di demi-couture e alta moda in cui splende una sapiente artigianalità. Ciò é testimoniato dalle creazioni realizzate dalla fashion designer norvegese Leila Hafzi, che racchiudono in sé un meraviglioso pizzo ricamato a mano, unitamente  a quelle di una brillante creativa che lavora nell’ ambito della moda sposa, Coco Ochwada, la quale ha fondato il brand Everly e un nome che evoca un’ epoca, gli anni Ottanta ed è impresso nella mia memoria, Sybilla, la geniale fashion designer spagnola che ha segnato quei tempi (e mi rallegra che sia finalmente tornata a creare). Il mio fantastico interludio pomeridiano da Penelope si è concluso con un momento headonism di cui sono stati protagonisti gli accessori per capelli e i cappelli, alcuni dei quali provenienti dagli archivi di Penelope, iconici capolavori all’ insegna del culto dell’ eleganza, che è ivi impresso e rende Penelope ciò che è, una cattedrale.
