Eclecticism, a vibrant and subversive way of thinking under the sign of art, embodied in “Art is resistance”, categorical imperative turned also in label of unisex clothing, successfully joining fashion and art, making concrete a way of making fashion under the sign of consciousness, healthy visions and positive criticism to make more and better. That is the sign of Naco Paris, brilliant fashion designer, performance artist and awesome model in drag – reminding me the hilarious and vibrant art and beauty of Divine, the iconic muse of John Waters who starred in many films he made as “Hairspray”, “Mondo trasho” and many others, masterpieces of camp culture – who recently featured in “Vous Marie“, the new project by the celebrated photographer Oliviero Toscani with the Paris art gallery La Hune and also in a commercial as testimonial of taxi company Uber.

Eclettismo, un vibrante e sovversivo modo di pensare all’ insegna dell’ arte, racchiuso in “Art is resistance”, imperativo categorico trasformato anche in una etichetta di abbigliamento unisex, che unisce felicemente moda e arte, concretizza un modo di fare moda all’ insegna di consapevolezza, salubri visioni e una critica costruttiva per fare di più e meglio. Questo è il segno di Naco Paris, brillante fashion designer, performance artist e fantastico modello in drag – che mi richiama alla mente l’ ilare e vibrante arte e bellezza di Divine, l’ iconica musa di John Waters, protagonista di varie sue pellicole quali “Hairspray”, “Mondo trasho” e molte altre, capolavori della cultura camp – che recentemente è stato il protagonista di “Vous Marie“, il nuovo progetto del celebre fotografo Oliviero Toscani con la galleria d’ arte di Parigi La Hune ed anche nelle vesti di testimonial della campagna pubblicitaria della compagnia di taxi Uber.
