It successfully runs through 7th May 2018 at the London Gallery Lazinc the exhibition “Ash from Chaos”, which showcases the works by Joe Corrè(, bright fashion designer, businessman, who created yesterday the celebrated luxury lingerie brand Agent Provocateur, and later the sartorial clothing brand A Child of the Jago and the make-up brand Illamasqua and strong social activism, focused on the protection of environment and the climate revolution), that arise from “Burn Punk London”, initiative he made on 26th November 2016 which took place in London in a boat on the Thames where precious memorabilia of punk were burned by him.

A destructive act of protest against the commodification by the mainstream of a counterculture movement, which has turned into art, more specifically into a series of artworks – made of the ashes arisen from funeral pyre of punk. The proceeds arising from their sale will be entirely donated to a charity – and a part of documentary film he made( which is currently work in progress), accompanying  this awesome showcase and giving rise to a marvelous alchemy, emphasizing the message underlying to this gesture: “to question on price and value” , as Joe( embodying at best the assertiveness, modesty,  romanticism, which is not that consisting to give as a gift roses to the one you love, but to follow and make concrete the idea of freedom and humanity, pleased to tell you more  about him his bright visions and ideas soon) says and stop to be passive, developing a conscious way of thinking which is respectful of the world surrounding us.

That and much more will be the core of talk featuring the iconic, genius British fashion designer  and bright visual artist Daniel Lismore( who is Ambassador of Tate Modern as well as Graduated Fashion Week and has made his life a work of art), hosting in the Lazinc Gallery at 7pm  a talk with Joe Corrè about this marvelous initiative, successfully joining art and activism. A not to be missed happening to appreciate a smashing conversation between two precious individuals under the sign of culture, emancipated  from the obvious and reasonable, contemporary times, sense, values and art.

Prosegue felicemente  fino al 7 maggio 2018 presso la Galleria d’ arte di Londra Lazinc la mostra “Ash from Chaos” che espone le opere di Joe Corrè(, brillante fashion designer, uomo d’ affari che ha creato ieri il celebre marchio di lingerie di lusso Agent Provocateur, successivamente il marchio di abbigliamento sartoriale A Child of the Jago, e fervente attivista nel sociale, impegnato nella protezione dell’ ambiente e nella climate revolution), le quali nascono da “Burn Punk London”, iniziativa da lui posta in essere il 26 novembre 2016 che ha avuto luogo a Londra in una barca sul Tamigi, in cui sono state da lui bruciate memorabilia del punk.

Un atto distruttivo di protesta contro la mercificazione da parte del mainstream di un movimento di controcultura che si è trasformato in arte, più specificatamente in una serie di opere d’ arte – fatto delle ceneri della pira funeraria del punk. I proventi derivanti dalla loro vendita saranno devoluti per intero a un’ associazione di beneficienza – unitamente a un frammento della pellicola documentaristica, un racconto, un’ esperienza visiva unica (che sta per essere ultimato) che accompagna questa fantastica rassegna che dà vita a una meravigliosa alchimia ed enfatizza il messaggio sotteso a tale gesto: “interrogarsi su prezzo e valore”, come afferma Joe( il quale incarna al meglio assertività, modestia, romanticismo – che non ciò che consiste nel regalare rose a cui si ama ma seguire e concretizzare l’ idea di libertà – e umanità, lieta di raccontare presto altro ancora su di lui, sulle sue brillanti visioni ed idee) e smettere di essere passivi, consolidando un modo di pensare consapevole e rispettoso del mondo che ci circonda.

Questo e molto altro sarà il cuore del talk di cui sarà protagonista l’ iconico, geniale fashion designer inglese e brillante artista Daniel Lismore( che è anche Ambasciatore del Museo di Londra Tate Modern, della Graduated Fashion Week ed ha reso la sua vita un’ opera d’ arte) il quale  sarà il moderatore di un talk con Joe Corrè che si terrà presso la Galleria Lazinc alle ore 19:00, incentrato su questa lodevole iniziativa che unisce felicemente arte ed attivismo. Un evento imperdibile per apprezzare due vibranti individualità  all’ insegna di cultura, emancipata dall’ ovvio e ragionevole, contemporaneità,  senso, valori e arte.

To wear the pyjamas as nightwear and outerwear, a dress-code reminding me the celebrated artist Julian Schnabel, it’s an eventuality which comes true and is told by “A Return to Sleepy Jones Island”, the film by Oscar Boyson featuring the renowned American brand of sleepwear, underwear and loungewear Sleepy Jones, created in 2013 by Andy Spade, Anthony Sperduti and Chad Buri. High-end materials as cotton and silk, a comfortable fit, fun prints and precious details talking about craftsmanship and making iconic and timeless the creations of brand.

OLTRE IL PIGIAMA: SLEEPY JONES

It was released the trailer of NU(I)T, artistic project joining different disciplines as film, performance art, music and poetry, ideated by the iconic, vibrant artist and beloved friend Alex Zapak aka The Countess, who is the founder of art movement The Cunt Rock Revolution, band and artistic collective later turned into The Countess and Cun$t Rock Revolution and the Bank of Imaginations Theatre. This project has previewed weeks ago in Berlin during the fashion week and featured the live performance of The Stooges. I am very pleased of talking about NU(I)T, arising from the creativity of a visionary artist as well as I am into all that, or rather I am as  poem, “Poem for Nunzia – which follows –  Alex wrote and gave me as a gift. That is much more than a gift, it’s electricity, energy and its sharing, a value I celebrate. Hopefully I will tell you soon more about this marvelous project as well as new dates, not to be missed happenings to discover and enjoy The Countess.

NU(I)T, IL VISIONARIO PROGETTO ARTISTICO DI THE COUNTESS

Alex Zapak aka The Countess during a Skype show

Alex Zapak aka The Countess during her first show via Skype

È stato pubblicato il trailer di NU(I)T, progetto artistic che unisce differenti discipline quali il cinema, la performance, musica e poesia, ideato dall’ iconica, vibrante artista e cara amica Alex Zapak aka The Countess, fondatrice del movimento artistico The Cunt Rock Revolution, band e collettivo artistico poi trasformato in The Countess and Cun$t Rock Revolution e del Bank of Imaginations Theatre. Questo progetto è stato presentato in anteprima settimane fa a Berlino in occasione della fashion week ed ha avuto quale protagonista l’ esibizione dal vivo degli  Stooges. Mi rallegra oltremodo parlare di NU(I)T, poichè è il prodotto della creatività di un’ artista visionaria e anche perché ci sono al suo interno, o meglio ci sono sotto forma di poesia, “Poem for Nunzia” – che equivale a “Poesia per Nunzia” il cui testo segue e ho deliberatamente mantenuto nella lingua originale – che Alex mi ha scritto e donato. Ciò è molto più di un dono, è elettricità, energia e la sua condivisione, un valore che celebro. Sperabilmente presto vi dirò di più su questo meraviglioso lavoro come anche nuove date, eventi imperdibili per scoprire e apprezzare The Countess.

26th March would have been the birthday of Leigh Bowery (who passed away in 1994), genius and legendary Australian performer artist, club promoter, actor, pop star, model, and fashion designer (also for the Michael Clark Dance Company), based in London and was part of London Blitz Kids, New York City Michael Alig’s Club Kids and founder along with Boy George in 1985 of Taboo Club during the times of new-romantic movement. Today I remember him who is considered one of the more influential figures in the 1980s and 1990s London and New York City art and fashion circles, influencing a generation of artists and designers. His influence reached through the fashion, club and art worlds to impact, amongst others, Meadham Kirchhoff, Alexander McQueen, Lucian Freud, Vivienne Westwood, Boy George, Antony and the Johnsons, John Galliano, Gareth Pugh, Rick Owens, the Scissor Sisters, David LaChapelle, Lady Bunny along with many bands and nightclubs in London and New York City which arguably perpetuated his avant-garde ideas featuring the grotesque as non-conventional standard of beauty. Many are the books, documentary films, exhibitions and the permanent collections at Museums that celebrate his sign, that visionary attitude going beyond time and energy I love and pay homage always and forever.

LEIGH BOWERY: SEMPRE & PER SEMPRE

Il 26 marzo sarebbe stato il compleanno di Leigh Bowery (venuto a mancare nel 1994), geniale e leggendario performer artist australiano, club promoter, attore, pop star, modello e fashion designer(anche per la Michael Clark Dance Company) che ha vissuto a Londra ed ha fatto parte dei Blitz Kids di Londra, dei Club Kids di Michael Alig a New York ed ha fondato con Boy George nel 1985 il famoso locale Taboo ai tempi del movimento new-romantic. Oggi ricordo lui che è considerato una delle figure più emblematiche, avendo influenzato una generazione di artisti e designer. La sua influenza é giunta attraverso il mondo della moda, dei locali notturni e dell’ arte  per avere impatto, tra gli altri, su Meadham Kirchhoff, Alexander McQueen, Lucian Freud, Vivienne Westwood, Boy George, Antony and the Johnsons, John Galliano, Gareth Pugh, Rick Owens, the Scissor Sisters, David LaChapelle, Lady Bunny unitamente a svariati gruppi e locali notturni a Londra e New York City che presumibilmente hanno perpetrato le sue avveniristiche idee di cui è protagonista il grottesco quale, anticonvenzionale e sovversivo standard di bellezza. Molteplici sono i libri, i documentari, le mostre e le collezioni permanenti nei musei che celebrano il suo segno, quell’ estro visionario oltre il tempo ed energia che amo e a cui rendo omaggio sempre e per sempre.

A tale paying homage to one relevant persona of fashion photography, Roxanne Lowit, who depicted culture, subcultures for three decades, giving rise to a new way to work as photographer, giving rise to a kind of reportage which turns into an artwork. That and much more as the tales by Giambattista Valli, David LaChapelle, Giorgio Armani, Jeremy Scott, Julian Schnabel, Pat Cleveland, Amanda Lepore and Heidi Klum is embodied into “Roxanne Lowit Magic Moment”, the documentary film, bright work which marks the debut of the actress Yvonne Sciò as director and producer and was recently screened during the latest edition of Altaroma, a smashing event under the sign of fashion culture.

Questo e molto di più come le testimonianze di Giambattista Valli, David LaChapelle, Giorgio Armani, Jeremy Scott, Julian Schnabel, Pat Cleveland, Amanda Lepore ed Heidi Klum e racchiuso in “Roxanne Lowit Magic Moment”, la pellicola documentaristica, brillante lavoro che segna il debutto dell’ attrice Yvonne Sciò nelle vesti di regista e produttrice ed è stato recentemente proiettato in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma, un formidabile evento all’ insegna della cultura della moda.

Experimentation, reinterpretations and innovations, an atmosphere smelling of creativity, those are the main features of Talents 2016, fashion contest of the Rome Costume and Fashion Academy – which was held at the marvelous building of Rome Ex Dogana, place under the sign of industrial, metropolitan suggestions and contemporary times where took place the events curated by Altaroma – which featured the final works by the graduated students of the renowned fashion school headed by Lupo Lanzara and Adrien Yakimov Roberts as director of education, showed behind a jury of experts as Silvia Venturini Fendi (President of Altaroma), Carlo Capasa (President of the National Chamber of Italian Fashion), Laura Lusuardi (Max Mara Creative Director), Leonardo Pucci (Christian Dior) and many others. Ilaria Fiore won this edition, who has also awarded with a special prize for the accessories she made. The bright creative made a capsule collection joining sartorialism and experimentation, combines the cloth with leather, where the accessories or rather bags and belts become a fundamental part of dress (though they are removable). Lightness, minimalism, rebellion against family, father and dialectics of power is what the collection by Deniza Nugnes talks about, who – as she told me days ago, during the fitting of the fashion show which was held at the Costume & Fashion Academy – has inspired by the cultural revolution from 1968 and subverted the male wardrobe, its constructions giving rise to minimal essential garments and successful asymmetries. Many are the ideas on the move drawing new shapes and lines as the sphere becoming the fundamental idea of the collection by Andrea Maria di Salvo where white is the main features, which embodies many theatrical references.

ALTAROMA: I TALENTS 2016 DELL’ ACCADEMIA DI COSTUME & MODA DI ROMA

Ilaria Fiore, photo courtesy of Ilaria Fiore

Sperimentazione, reinterpretazioni e innovazioni, un’ atmosfera che profuma di creatività, questi i principali protagonisti di Talents 2016, il fashion contest dell’ Accademia Costume e Moda di Roma -che si è tenuto nei  meravigliosi spazi dell’ Ex Dogana di Roma, luogo all’ insegna di suggestioni industrial, metropolitane e contemporaneità  in cui hanno avuto luogo gli eventi curati da Altaroma – di cui sono stati protagonisti i final works degli studenti neo-diplomati nella rinomata scuola di moda diretta da Lupo Lanzara e da Adrien Yakimov Roberts nelle vesti di direttore didattico, che sono stati presentati dinanzi a una giuria di esperti quali Silvia Venturini Fendi (Presidente di Altaroma), Carlo Capasa (Presidente della Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana), Laura Lusuardi (Direttore Creativo di Max Mara), Leonardo Pucci (Christian Dior) e molti altri. Vincitrice di questa edizione è Ilaria Fiore, la quale è stata insignita anche di un premio speciale per gli accessori da lei realizzati. La brillante creativa ha creato una collezione capsule che unisce sartorialità e sperimentazione, abbina il tessuto alla pelle, in cui gli accessori ovvero borse e cinture diventano parte integrante dell’ abito (pur essendo rimovibili). Leggerezza, minimalismo e ribellione contro la famiglia e la dialettica del potere è ciò di cui parla la collezione di Deniza Nugnes, la quale -. come mi ha detto giorni fa, durante il fitting della sfilata che si è tenuto all’ Accademia di Costume e Moda – si è ispirata alla rivoluzione culturale del 1968 ed ha sovvertito il guardaroba maschile, le sue costruzioni dando vita a capi minimali e felici asimmetrie. Plurime le idee in movimento che disegnano nuove forme e linee quali la sfera che diventa il concetto fondante della collezione di Andrea Maria di Salvo in cui il bianco è il principale protagonista, la quale racchiude in sé plurimi riferimenti teatrali.
