“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.

It successfully follows, running through 25th March 2018Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman”, the exhibition featuring the work by Rick Owens, told by a catalogue by Electa (embodied in a special box in limited edition including also the unseen perfume he made, civet and grey amber scented). Twenty years are illustrated by memorabilia, catalogues, pictures, some were taken by Rick Castro – one of them features the father of photographer – fetishes, videos telling the artistic path by Owens along with garments and furniture.

The sulfur and timeless atmosphere, emphasized by the site-specific installation created by fashion designer, gives rise to a genuine Gesamkunstwerk, the idea of total work of art by Wagner where different channels of communication dialogue between themselves. The charming showcase depicts signes, ideas, suggestions, one of them reinterprets the performative experience by a legendary artist, Leigh Bowery, drawing a way beyond good and evil, a mystic synaesthesia where the beyond sanctifies human being in its instinctual rush and grotesque romanticism.

Rick Owens, photo by N

Storm and stress, the tension drama of individual, tender and feral, where passion, spiritual energy, reveals also as “friction between the soul and the outer world” (as yesterday the filmmaker Andrej Tarkovskji depicted at best in the masterpiece he made “Stalker”). A not to be missed happening which witnesses an essential chapter of yesterday and today conceptual fashion history.

 

MODA COME GESAMKUNTWERK: RICK OWENS AL MUSEO DELLA TRIENNALE DI MILANO (2)

 

Rick Owens, photo by N

Prosegue felicemente fino al 25 marzo 2018Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman”, la mostra che ha quale protagonista l’ opera di Rick Owens, raccontata da un catalogo di Electa (una special box in edizione limitata che contiene anche il suo profumo inedito allo zibetto e ambra grigia). Un ventennio illustrato da memorabilia, cataloghi, fotografie alcune di Rick Castro – una delle quali ritrae il padre del fotografo -, feticci, video che raccontano l’ iter artistico di Owens unitamente ad abiti e arredi.

 

Rick Owens, photo by N

L’ atmosfera sulfurea e senza tempo, enfatizzata dalla installazione site-specific creata dal fashion designer, dà vita ad un’ autentica Gesamkunstwerk, l’ opera d’ arte totale di wagneriana memoria in cui più canali di comunicazione dialogano tra di loro. L’ affascinante rassegna ritrae, segni, idee, suggestioni, una delle quali reinterpreta l’ esperienza performativa di un artista leggendario, Leigh Bowery, disegnando una via al di là del bene e del male, una mistica sinestesia in cui l’ oltre santifica l’ umano nel suo impeto pulsionale e grottesco romanticismo.

 

Rick Owens, photo by Rick Castro featuring his father, photo by N

Tempesta e impeto, il dramma tensivo dell’ individuo, tenero e ferino, in cui la passione, energia spirituale, si rivela anche quale “attrito tra l’ animo e il mondo esterno” (come ha magistralmente dipinto ieri su pellicola il regista Andrej Tarkowskji nel suo capolavoro “Stalker”). Un evento imperdibile che testimonia un imprescindibile capitolo della storia della moda concettuale di ieri e oggi.

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”.

Craftsmanship and fashion, an open dialogue which is full of many ideas, signs, suggestions and visions talking about constructions, the art of beautiful and well made, these are the features of A.I. Studio, exhibition project ideated and curated by Clara Tosi Pamphili and Alessio De Navasques, event which was held in Rome at Via Guido Reni 7 during the Altaroma grand opening. Colors, shapes and visions, the ones made by creatives as Davide Grillo, Vien, Karoline Lang, Jezabelle Cormio, Ahirain, Frederick Hornof, Serie Numerica and many others. Lightness, a tale joining art, embodying the genesis of creative process which gives rise to the dress, the one which is impressed in the marvelous creations by Aurore Thibout.

Days ago the fashion designer Angelo Marani passed away (he was seventy years old), renowned name  in the realm of ready-to-wear and knitwear – founder of company Marex producing the label which brings his name and brand .GIULIAMARANI, created by the bright daughter Giulia Marani – kind man who stays in the hearts of the ones like me were lucky enough to know and be close to him and his marvelous family. He was a joyful and generous individual, eager and untiring worker. Creativity, lightness, warm-hearted attitude and humility are some of features of  Angelo, ironic man, intellectually and morally honesty, who was always contemporary as it is evidenced by the Spring/Summer 2017 collection he made, presented during the Milan Fashion Week. That was the event where I saw Angelo who talked to me about the sporty-chic suggestions from Seventies, the Hollywood glamour that were embodied in it. Creativity and technology, a wide consciousness in terms of manufacture, sense of cloth are the alchemies impressed in the creations he made, productions and different combinations of materials, evidencing the excellence of made in Italy. That is the way I like reminding and as he deserves. Dear Angelo, I say you goodbye and I hug you with all of my love, respect and sympathy.

È venuto a mancare giorni fa il fashion designer Angelo Marani (all’ età di settanta anni), rinomato nome nell’ ambito del prêt a porter e della maglieria – fondatore dell’ azienda Marex che produce la sua etichetta e il brand .GIULIAMARANI, creato dalla brillante figlia Giulia Marani -, uomo di grande umanità che resta nei cuori di chi come me ha avuto il piacere e la fortuna di conoscer, esser vicino a lui ed alla sua splendida famiglia. Gioiosa e generosa individualità, lavoratore alacre e indefesso. Creatività, levità, calore e umiltà sono alcuni dei tratti di Angelo, uomo ironico, intellettualmente e moralmente onesto, sempre al passo con i tempi come si evince dalla sua collezione primavera/estate 2017, presentata in occasione della Milan Fashion Week. Questa, la circostanza in cui ho incontrato Angelo il quale mi ha parlato delle suggestioni sporty-chic, Seventies,  del glamour hollywoodiano che erano in essa racchiuse. Creatività e tecnologia, un’ ampia consapevolezza manifatturiera, senso del tessuto sono le alchimie impresse nelle sue creazioni, lavorazioni e svariate combinazioni di materiali che testimoniano l’ eccellenza del made in Italy. Questo è come mi piace ricordarlo e come merita. Con tutto il mio affetto,  stima e simpatia, caro Angelo ti saluto e ti abbraccio.

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.
