Dear FBFers, here I am again after a long time to talk about the Altaroma latest edition and “Black celebration”, exhibition event I ideated and curated in collaboration with Altaroma which was held in Rome at the Montoro 12 art gallery. The event bringing the same name of the track and legendary album by Depeche Mode – one of most relevant chapters of new-wave music – celebrated a color, its incisiveness, deepness and refinement through a smashing showcase of fashion, art, design and music. High fashion and demi-couture made in Italy, dresses and accessories made by renowned couturiers and vibrant creatives as Renato Balestra, Sarli, Galitzine by Sergio Zambon, Liborio Capizzi, Sylvio Giardina, Angelos Bratis, Maurizio Pecoraro, Lucia Odescalchi, Mario Salvucci, Anna Porcu,  Olga Pong, Arnoldo Battois, Myriam B. and Frank Lo dialogued with the art by the brilliant photographer Marco Bertolini, the artistic installation “Skull” by Sylvio Giardina – a dynamic black book embodied in a black, lighting Plexiglas box depicting the movement of a ray of light evoking the brightness of a color which is often connected to darkness, forgetting the lessons by Caravaggio who successfully impressed in his works the light of black -, the olfactive design by Antonio Gardoni, bright architect and creator of artistic perfumery brand Bogue profumo, who presented the Bogue Mask, a scent diffuser for interiors along with Cologne and the new scent MAAI – scents that are 100% naturals and free from chemical fixers -, and the enchanting site-specific installation created by a marvelous creative, the milliner Olga Pong. The atmosphere which talked about the persuasiveness of black has emphasized by the music by Andy Fluon, founder of Bluvertigo band and artistic collective and band Fluon who reinterpreted exclusively for the happening the famous track by Depeche Mode. A successful afternoon interlude which has enriched by Epicurean suggestions: the creations by the food designer Francesca Silveri from the Foligno San Feliciano Bakery and Bocca di Dama, salted and sweet cookies made in black and the culture of taste embodied in the delicious wines by Tasca D’ Almerita.

Cari FBFers, rieccomi dopo lungo tempo per parlare dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma e di “Black celebration”, evento espositivo da me ideato e curato in collaborazione con Altaroma che si è tenuto a Roma presso la galleria d’ arte Montoro 12. L’ evento, che porta il nome del brano e leggendario album dei Depeche Mode – uno dei capitolo più significativi della musica new-wave -, ha celebrato un colore, il nero, la sua incisività, profondità e raffinatezza attraverso una formidabile rassegna di moda, arte, design e musica. Alta moda e demi-couture made in Italy, abiti e accessory realizzati da rinomati couturiers e vibranti creativi quali Renato Balestra, Sarli, Galitzine by Sergio Zambon, Liborio Capizzi, Sylvio Giardina, Angelos Bratis, Maurizio Pecoraro, Lucia Odescalchi, Mario Salvucci, Anna PorcuOlga Pong, Arnoldo Battois, Myriam B. e Frank Lo hanno dialogato con l’ arte del brillante fotografo Marco Bertolini, l’ installazione artistica “Skull” di Sylvio Giardina – un libro nero dinamico racchiuso in una luminosa scatola nera di plexiglass che ritrae il movimento di un raggio di luce, il quale evoca la lucentezza di un colore sovente associato all’ oscurità, dimenticandosi la lezione di Caravaggio che ha impresso nelle sue opere la luce del nero -, il design olfattivo di Antonio Gardoni, brillante architetto e creatore del brand di profumeria artistica Bogue profumo, che ha presentato la Bogue Mask, un diffusore di profumo per ambienti unitamente a Cologne e al nuovo profumo MAAI – fragranze che sono naturali al 100 % e prive di fissatori chimici – e l’ incantevole installazione creata da una fantastica creativa, la designer di cappelli Olga Pong. L’ atmosfera che parlava della persuasività del nero è stata enfatizzata dalla musica di Andy Fluon, fondatore della band Bluvertigo e del collettivo artistico e band Fluon che ha reinterpretato esclusivamente per l’ evento il famoso brano dei Depeche Mode. Un felice interludio pomeridiano che è stato arricchito da suggestioni epicuree: le creazioni della food designer Francesca Silveri del Forno San Feliciano di Foligno e Bocca di Dama, biscotti salati e dolci s made in black e dalla cultura del gusto racchiusa in nei deliziosi vini di Tasca D’ Almerita.

It featured during the latest edition of fashion tradeshow event White, which was held in Milan at SuperstudioShades of a gentleman”, the exhibition project I ideated and curated which joined art and fashion: the art of brilliant artist Mustafa Sabbagh, the intense, rarefied, atmospheres he depicted on photo to tell about the elegance of gentleman as lifestyle, the one of a gentleman, the iconic and brilliant Cesare Cunaccia. The renowned editor at large of Vogue Italia and L’ Uomo Vogue, eclectic individual, unique, incisive, refined and above the lines personality also featured as designer of the object which ideally represents him: the glasses, exclusive product made of natural horn by the optic gallery Boudoir Venice by Alessandro De Lorenzo. A little masterpiece of craftsmanship which is a luxury product, produced by the Veneto company Farben 1962 from Laggio di Cadore, embodying high-end materials, having a catchy packaging, a little hood box containing a case made of a wool personally chosen by Cunaccia and a sophisticated design making concrete the Brummelian paradigm “Less is more”. The eyewear collection has showcased along with the creations and cloths by the Milan Alessandro Leonardi’s Atelier Santerasmo Cinque and shoes by Santoni, that depicted what is elusive, the male elegance, sartorialism – embodied in the unique creations byAtelier Santerasmo Cinque, Isaia and shoes by Louis Leeman along with the other refined objects and accessories coming from Cesare Cunaccia’s wardrobe – and its details under the sign of lyricism and timelessness. An intimistic tale, lights and shadows make concrete a vibrant dialogue between art and fashion and talk about a today story which is always a mistery, the male elegance.

É stato protagonista dell’ ultima edizione dell’ evento fieristico di moda White, che si è tenuto a Milano presso Superstudio, “Shades of a gentleman”, il progetto espositivo da me ideato e curato che ha unito arte e moda: l’ arte del brillante artista Mustafa Sabbagh, le intense, rarefatte atmosfere da lui catturate su foto che raccontano l’ eleganza del gentleman come stile di vita e quella di un gentleman, l’ iconico e brillante Cesare Cunaccia. Il rinomato editor at large of Vogue Italia e L’ Uomo Vogue, eclettica individualità, unica, incisiva, raffinata personalità sopra le righe, è apparso anche nelle vesti di designer dell’ oggetto che idealmente lo rappresenta: gli occhiali, prodotto esclusivo realizzato in corno naturale dalla galleria ottica di Venezia Boudoir di Alessandro De Lorenzo. Un piccolo capolavoro di artigianalità, prodotto dall’ azienda Veneta Farben 1962 di Laggio di Cadore che racchiude in sé materiali di alta qualità, ha un packaging accattivante, una piccola scatola di legno che contiene un astuccio di lana, scelta personalmente da Cunaccia e un sofisticato design che concretizza felicemente il paradigma Brummeliano “Less is more”. La collezione di occhiali è stata esposta unitamente alle creazioni ed ai tessuti dell’ Atelier Santerasmo Cinque di Milano di Alessandro Leonardi e le calzature di Santoni che hanno ritratto l’ inafferrabile, l’ eleganza maschile, la sartorialità – racchiusa nelle creazioni uniche di Atelier Santerasmo Cinque, Isaia e le calzature di Louis Leeman insieme ad altri raffinati oggetti e accessori provenienti dal guardaroba di Cesare Cunaccia – ed i suoi dettagli all’ insegna di lirismo e atemporalità. Un racconto intimistico, luci e ombre che concretizzano un vibrante dialogo tra arte e moda e parlano di una storia di oggi che è un mistero di sempre, l’ eleganza maschile.

Orsorama, photo by N

I recently visited along with my friend and companion of Epicurean interludes – thinking the delights, energies and suggestions have to be shared – Andy Fluon (eclectic individual who is the founder of art collective and music band Fluon, visual artist, singer and DJ) the concept store and art gallery Orsorama, placed in Milan, in Via dell’ Orso 14, in the area of Brera. Here I saw Matteo Bonelli, its bright and visionary creator, who gave rise to a place, a vibrant cathedral showcasing and selling artworks, clothing, accessories – ties, jewelry and scarves – and furniture connected to a specific theme, based on religion and its symbolism – as it appears in “Cult fiction“, the new exhibition -, reinterpreted under the sign of new-pop. But Orsorama it’s much more than this, as it also successfully makes concrete a new way of making fashion, closely connected to a concept arising from artworks. In fact the patterns featuring in the artworks that are exhibited are impressed in the t-shirts, scarves and pillows, limited editions that join the best Italian craftsmanship, high-end materials, a catchy design and an excellent manufacture, giving rise to luxury products. The most bright evidence of all that is the collection of scarves, a luxury product which is extremely contemporary, by Svetlana Schmidt, a genuine genius of textile printing, as it arises from her work talking about surreal suggestions, where pop visions combine to the holy imagery. Orsorama is a place to visit, to come back and enjoy art and fashion dialoguing between themselves.

ARTE & MODA A MILANO: LA MIA VISITA AL CONCEPT STORE & GALLERIA D’ ARTE ORSORAMA

Ho recentemente visitato insieme al mio amico e compagno di intermezzi epicurei – pensando che piaceri, energie e suggestioni siano da condividere – Andy Fluon (eclettica individualità che é il fondatore del collettivo artistico e band Fluon, artista, cantante e DJ) il concept store e galleria d’ arte Orsorama, sita a Milano, in Via dell’ Orso 14, nei dintorni di Brera. Ivi ho incontrato Matteo Bonelli, il suo brillante e visionario creatore che ha dato vita a un luogo, una vibrante cattedrale che espone e vende opere d’ arte, abbigliamento, accessori – cravatte, gioielli e foulard – e componenti di arredo legati a un tema specifico che si basa sulla religione e la sua simbologia – come appare in “Cult fiction”, la nuova mostra, reinterpretata all’ insegna dell’ arte neo-pop. Ma Orsorama è molto più di questo, poiché concretizza felicemente anche un nuovo modo di fare moda, strettamente connesso all’ arte. Infatti i motivi protagonisti delle opere d’ arte esposte sono impressi in t-shirt, foulard e cuscini, edizioni limitate che uniscono la migliore artigianalità, materiali di alta qualità, un design accattivante e una manifattura di eccellenza, dando vita a prodotti di lusso. La più lampante dimostrazione di tutto ciò è la collezione di foulards, un prodotto di lusso estremamente contemporaneo, di Svetlana Schmidt, un autentico genio della stampa su tessuto, come risulta dalla sua opera che parla di suggestioni surreali in cui visioni pop si fondono con l’ immaginario sacro. Orsorama, un luogo da visitare, in cui tornare e apprezzare arte e moda che dialogano tra di loro.

Simonetta Gianfelici, Deanna Ferretti Veroni, Azzedine Alaia, Carla Sozzani

I enjoyed during Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, event organized by Vogue Italia under the sign of fashion which was recently held in Milan, the birthday party of 10 Corso Como that celebrated its twenty years. Here I joyfully spent before the afternoon along with Simonetta Gianfelici and Deanna Ferretti Veroni – owner of famous textile company producing knitwear – meeting the sweet, genius Azzedine Alaia and the charismatic Carla Sozzani – pioneer individual who created the first, genuine concept-store in Italy, a cathedral of fashion, sophistication, art and culture – and later the evening during the birthday party featuring the live performance of Sarah Jane Morris. Epicurean, music and art suggestions – as my visit to the Carla Sozzani Gallery that exhibits the works by photographer Carlo Valacchi – along my friend Andy Fluon – vibrant new-pop artist and eclectic musician and singer -, the smashing creatives and friends I’’ve seen as Rick Owens, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Maurizio Pecoraro, Andrea Incontri, Diego Dolcini, Federico Poletti and Letizia Schatzinger, that made the evening unforgettable.

 

VOGUE FASHION’ S NIGHT OUT: IL BIRTHDAY PARTY DI 10 CORSO COMO

Sarah Jane Morris

 

 

Ho apprezzato in occasione della Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, evento all’insegna della moda organizzato da Vogue Italia che si è recentemente tenuto a Milano, il birthday party di 10 Corso Como che ha celebrato i suoi venti anni. Ivi ho passato gioiosamente prima il pomeriggio insieme a Simonetta Gianfelici e Deanna Ferretti Veroni – proprietaria della famosa azienda tessile produttrice di maglieria – incontrando il dolce, geniale Azzedine Alaia e la carismatica Carla Sozzani – pionieristica individualità che ha creato il primo, autentico concept store in Italia, una cattedrale di moda, raffinatezza, arte e cultura – e poi la serata al birthday party con l’esibizione dal vivo di Sarah Jane Morris. Suggestioni epicuree, musicali e artistiche – quali la mia visita alla Carla Sozzani Gallery che espone le opere del fotografo Carlo Valacchi – unitamente al mio caro amico Andy Fluon – vibrant artista neo-pop new-pop ed eclettico musicista e cantante -, i formidabili creativi e amici che ho incontrato quali Rick Owens, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Maurizio Pecoraro, Andrea Incontri, Diego Dolcini, Federico Poletti e Letizia Schatzinger che hanno reso la serata indimenticabile.
