The Winter edition of Altaroma featured “Showcase”, a bright project I appreciated very much ideated by the ICE Agency and Altaroma, which has concretely evidenced its support to the creativity made in Italy. To create connections between the Italian emerging brands with buyers, journalists, Italian and foreigners fashion insiders, that has been the purpose of this event, a laudable initiative which featured forty fashion designers – ten different ones alternated on every day – as Anna Porcu, 16R, Avaro Figlio Milano, Aroma 30, Nadiamari, The Dots, Mandredi Manara, Silvio Betterelli, Quattromani, Susana Traca, Delirious, Flaminia Barosini, Benedetta Bruzziches and many others who showcased the creations they made under the sign of a vibrant concept and a catchy design.

L’ edizione invernale di Altaroma ha avuto quale protagonista “Showcase”, un brillante progetto da me molto apprezzato ideato dall’ Agenzia ICE ed Altaroma, che ha concretamente dimostrato durante questi anni il suo sostegno verso la creatività emergente made in Italy.

“The different loves of a man” bag: a man and his lost loves/”I diversi amori di un uomo” bag: un uomo e i suoi amori perduti

 

The bag, an art work, becomes a canvas where are painted the portraits of men, women, feelings, emotions and their universality. It’s caressing, the overwhelming tale on cloth – velvet and other precious materials – as it is also evidenced by the name of every single bag – as “the elaboration of a mourning”, “a woman says but not says”, “ the man playing with the feelings” -, which embodies a different story, becomes an accessory and talks about desires, thoughts and situations everyone has experience just only once in its own life. The elegance, a lifestyle, made of uniqueness, lightness, irony and poetry, turns into an awesome sentimental journey. This is all that shines in the collection by Melinita, brand of accessories created by the bright Carmela D’ Urso, successfully joining a vibrant concept under the sign of exclusivity, of beautiful and well made. The sophisticated creations she made, divided in many thematic series, are genuine unique items, entirely handmade and enriched by embroideries, decorations as the little dolls depicting men and women she painted and dressed. These little, big masterpieces, to have and collect, are available at the renowned Rome concept store, design gallery Fondaco Gallery.

MELINITA: UN VIAGGIO SENTIMENTALE ATTRAVERSO LA BORSA

 

The susspended man Melinita bag: the lightness of a man suspended between dream and reality/ l’ uomo sospeso Melinita bag: l’ uomo sospeso tra sogno e realtà

 

La borsa, un’ opera d’arte, diventa una tela su cui sono dipinti i ritratti di uomini, donne, sentimenti, emozioni e della loro universalità. Carezzevole, l’ avvincente racconto su tessuto – velluto e altri preziosi materiali -, come si evince anche dal nome di ogni singola borsa – quale “l’ elaborazione di un lutto”, “una donna dice, ma non dice”, “l’ uomo che gioca con i sentimenti” – che racchiude in sé una diversa storia, diviene un accessorio e parla di desideri, pensieri e situazioni che ognuno di noi ha sperimentato su sé stesso almeno una volta nella vita. L’ eleganza, uno stile di vita, fatto di unicità, levità, ironia e poesia si trasforma in un fantastico viaggio sentimentale. Questo è tutto ciò che splende nella collezione di Melinita, brand di accessori creato dalla brillante Carmela D’ Urso, che unisce felicemente un vibrante concept all’ insegna di esclusività, del bello e ben fatto. Le sue raffinate creazioni, suddivise in varie serie tematiche, sono autentici pezzi unici, realizzati interamente a mano e arricchiti di ricami, decori, quali le bamboline che incarnano uomini e donne da lei dipinti e vestiti. Questi piccoli, grandi capolavori, da avere e collezionare, sono disponibili nel rinomato concept store, galleria di design di Roma Fondaco Gallery.

 

The man playing with the feelings Melinita bag: the man playing with feelings of women stays alone/ L’ uomo che gioca con i sentimenti Melinita bag: l’ uomo che gioca con i sentimenti delle donne dopo resta solo

 

the woman in white Melinita bag: the light soul of a woman/ la donna in bianco Melinita bag: l’ anima leggera di una donna

 

balance and style of a woman Melinita bag/ equilibrio e stile di una donna Melinita bag

 

a woman says, but doesn’t say Melinita bag/ una donna dice, ma non dice Melinita bag

 

elaboration of a mourning Melinita bag: the pain for the loss of a love/elaborazione di un lutto Melinita bag: il dolore per la perdita di un’ amore

 

zen and fire( the weight of contraddictions)Melinita bag: the contrast bewtween conflicting emotions sweeps away the balance of a woman/ zend e fuoco( il peso delle contraddizioni) Mellinita bag: il contrasto tra emozioni in conflitto travolge l’ equilibrio di una donna

 

 

a man divided in half Melinita bag: a man and his complicated loves/ un uomo diviso a metà Melinita bag: un uomo e i suoi complicati amori

 

ad the world turns Melinita bag: l’ egoismo degli uomini/ gira il mondo gira Melinita bag: l’ egoismo degli uomini, tutto gira intorno a me

 

the elegance of a man Melinita bag: a man searching for his soul/ l’ eleganza di un uomo Melinita bag: l’ uomo alla ricerca della propria anima

 

the temptations of a man Melinita bag: a man gagged and ties, thus he resists to the temptations/ le tentazioni di un uomo Melinita bag: un uomo imbavagliato e legato resiste alle tentazioni

It will be opened tomorrow in Milan at the Triennale Design Museum “Rick Owens. Subhuman Inhuman  Superhuman”, the exhibition – running through 25th March 2018 – documenting the work by the celebrated fashion designer Rick Owens. It is a wide showcase of materials, drawings, pictures, furniture, videos, accessories and garments telling about the suggestions, impulse and the ideas on the move that are the core of his work and poetry. Conflicting, primal impulses are recomposed: the eternal and barbarical, life, death and hope, the solemnity of grotesque, kindness, fierce, heroism and sensuality  is made concrete through a unique play of ensembles and deconstructions giving rise to his sign, talking about his inner alphabet. It is an overwhelming story “about the balance of control – as the fashion designer says – and collapse and the temptation to overdo either”.

Homecore

Homecore is the French menswear brand created in 1992 by Alexandre Guarneri, successfully joining a casual-chic, timeless elegance, sustainability and a healthy lifestyle. Fluid and comfortable lines, high-end materials, precious details enriching the garments are the alchemies embodied in the creations that talk about uniqueness and a easy, slow living, the feeling of being like at home, being in harmony with ourselves and the world which surrounds us. That is the idea, the core of the brand which developed an urban refinement, made of vibrant ideas on the move as a discipline to find our permanent center of gravity, the Gum-jo, an intuitive yoga practice (including many enthusiasts as the actor Vincent Cassel), created by Alexandre by using the Gumjo, a natural rubber support, arising from the study on skeleton in gravitation on the Earth. Gumjo is focused on the pureness of being here now (idea which evokes the Existentialist concept of “hic et nunc” and reminding me the work by Martin Heidegger and the rebel by Ernst Jünger) in order to let go yourself to the center, your own, the center of things or the center of others (considering the center as the physical center). It can be practiced anywhere, anytime with anyone as it has evidenced in an event which was recently held in the Paris flagship store of brand. This practice is a clear sign, impressed in the work of Alexandre as fashion designer, his study on body and posture which underlines the interior structure of the body and supports the posture, giving rise to a genuine lifestyle talking about harmony, sustainability as well catchy passé-partout that are available in the Homecore Paris flagship store, placed in the area of Marais and in renowned boutiques as London Dover Street Market.

HOMECORE L’ ELEGANZA CASUAL-CHIC COME STILE DI VITA

Homecore è il marchio francese di abbigliamento uomo creato nel 1992 da Alexandre Guarneri che unisce felicemente una eleganza casual-chic, senza tempo e un salubre stile di vita. Linee fluide e confortevoli, materiali di alta qualità, dettagli preziosi che arricchiscono i capi sono le alchimie racchiuse nelle creazioni, che parlano di unicità e un easy, slow living, della sensazione di sentirsi a casa ovunque, in armonia con noi stessi e il mondo che ci circonda. Questa, l’ idea, il cuore del brand che ha consolidato una raffinatezza urban, fatta di vibranti idee in movimento quali una disciplina per trovare il proprio centro di gravità permanente, il Gum-jo, una pratica di yoga intuitivo ( che annovera molteplici entusiasti quali l’ attore Vincent Cassel), creata da Alexandre che si avvale dell’ uso del Gumjo, un supporto di gomma naturale, la quale nasce dallo studio dello scheletro in gravitazione sulla terra. Gumjo è incentrata sull’ idea dell’ esser qui e ora ( che evoca il concetto esistenzialista dell’ “hich e nunc” e mi fa pensare all’ opera del filosofo Martin Heidegger e al ribelle di Ernst Jünger) al fine di lasciarci andare al centro, al nostro centro, al centro delle cose o al centro degli altri (considerando il centro in termini di centro fisico). Può essere praticata ovunque, in qualsiasi momento e con chiunque come dimostra un evento che si è recentemente tenuto nel flagship-store parigino del brand. Tale pratica è un segno tangibile, impresso anche nel lavoro di Alexandre nelle vesti di fashion designer, il suo studio del corpo e della postura che sottolinea la struttura interiore del corpo e supporta la postura, dando vita a un autentico stile di vita che parla di armonia, sostenibilità come anche di accattivanti passé-partout che sono disponibili presso il flagship store di Parigi di Homecore, ubicato nei dintorni del Marais e in rinomate boutiques come Dover Street Market di Londra.

Sacredness, mysticism, embodied in the religious iconography meeting the profane, catchy rock suggestions start an overwhelming dialogue which is impressed in the precious silver alchemies by the bright Rome jewelry designer Marco de Luca. Incisiveness, fine craftmanship and lightness, a leitmotiv of his work featuring also in other creations he made that reinterpret animalier motifs as well as the rings from the early Nineties where silver substitutes the gem and its blaze, a successful game of constructions making concrete a brilliant manufacture and a timeless, sharp design – appreciate by personas from fashion, culture and art scene as the fashion designer, who is currently the creative director of Christian Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri and the eclectic, iconic and visionary journalist and critic Roberto D’ Agostino -, giving rise to genuine passé-partout to collect, overlap, to give oneself as a gift that are available in Rome at the boutique Toko in via del Corallo 33, a nice place to discover, appreciate and where to come back.

Sacralità, misticismo racchiuso nell’ iconografia di matrice religiosa che incontra il profano, accattivanti suggestioni rock avviano un avvincente dialogo che è impresso nelle preziose alchimie in argento del brillante designer di gioielli romano Marco de Luca. Incisività, fine artigianalità e levità, un leitmotiv della sua opera protagonista anche di altre creazioni da lui realizzate, le quali reinterpretano motivi animalier e gli anelli antichi di primo novecento in cui l’ argento ne sostituisce la pietra preziosa e il suo bagliore, un felice gioco di costruzioni che concretizza una brillante manifattura e un graffiante design senza tempo – tanto apprezzato da personaggi del mondo della moda, arte e cultura quali la fashion designer , attuale direttore creativo di Christian Dior, Maria Grazia Chiuri e l’ eclettico, iconico, visionario giornalista e critico Roberto D’ Agostino -, dando vita ad autentici passé-partout da collezionare, sovrapporre, regalarsi e regalare che sono in vendita a Roma presso la boutique Toko in via del Corallo 33, un simpatico luogo da scoprire, apprezzare e in cui tornare.

It was recently held in Paris at the enchanting concept store Front de Mode, placed in the suggestive area of Marais, the presentation of “Underground seduction” the Fall/Winter 2016-2017 unisex collection by Naco Paris, which has enriched by “Kiss”, the performance made by the bright fashion designer as his alter ego Madame Paris. Fluid, sporty-chic lines, colors, bright shades of yellow along which black, white, green and blue, recycled cloths, rubber, catchy slogans as “have fun”, “kill the system”, “forever fake” are some of the patterns embodied in this smashing collection where it shines a punk attitude, made of irreverence, joy and activism. The same mood finds a new context in the art, a series of photographs, the self-portraits of Madame Paris that were exhibited in the concept store and the performance by Madame Paris( made by using the cruelty free lipstick by Nabla).

Intimacy and universality, the language of a gesture turning into matter, the kiss, which becomes a clear track of love and a way of being, the queerness, in its many shades, metaphor successfully made concrete on paper. Different are the tracks of lipstick on paper, some are more intense, reminding a passionate kiss, instead other ones are more delicate, different kisses for every occasion, though every occasion is good to kiss oneself and love oneself, love the ones you love, bring, give and spread love. That is the core of performance: to act, do, dream, love joyfully, without any limit. The universality of love remarks another issue, the queerness and gender fluidity – I support -, love nullifying the gender(, considering sexuality, sex and its different architectures is not about gender, it is just about individual’ s intimacy, something I respect and celebrate through silence and discretion). It’s a vibrant tale, being the successful evidence of a poetical and political way of making art and fashion, a genuine underground seduction for all the ones who are rebel hearts.

Linee fluide, sporty-chic, colori, brillanti nuances di giallo unitamente a nero, bianco, verde e blu, tessuti di riciclo, vinile, accattivanti slogan quali “have fun”(“divertiti”), “kill the system”(“uccidi il sistema”), “forever fake”(“per sempre falso”) sono alcuni dei motivi impressi in questa formidabile collezione, in cui splende un’ attitudine punk, fatta di irriverenza, gioia e attivismo. Il medesimo mood trova un nuovo contesto nell’ arte, in una serie di fotografie, gli autoritratti di Madame Paris esposti nel concept store e la performance di Madame Paris( effettuata avvalendosi del rossetto cruelty free di Nabla).

Intimità e universalità, il linguaggio di un gesto che si trasforma in materia, il bacio, che diventa tangibile traccia di un sentimento, l’ amore e di un modo di essere, dell’ esser queer, nelle sue svariate sfumature, metafora felicemente concretizzata su carta Diverse sono le tracce di rossetto sulla carta, alcune sono più intense e ricordano un bacio appassionato altre invece sono più delicati, baci diversi per ogni occasione, anche se ogni occasione è buona per baciarsi, amarsi amare chi si ama, prendere, dare e spargere amore. Questo è il cuore della performance: agire, fare, sognare, amare con gioia e senza alcun limite. L’ universalità dell’ amore rimarca un’ altra problematica, l’ esser queer e la fluidità del gender – che sostengo -, l’ amore che vanifica il gender ( considerando la sessualità, il sesso e le sue svariate architetture non una questione di gender, bensì inerente l’ intimità del singolo individuo che in quanto tale rispetto e celebro attraverso il silenzio e la discrezione). Un vibrante racconto che è la felice dimostrazione di un modo politico e poetico di fare arte e moda, un’ autentica seduzione underground per tutti coloro che sono cuori ribelli.
