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.

Lightness becoming intelligible and sartorialism, open dialogue and dare between the creative and matter, the cloth, a continuous search which gives rise to new volumes and celebrates the silhouette and its dynamism. An aesthetic which pays homage to naturalness, fluidity, femininity and the classical lyrism of Graecism. These are the main features of the awesome Spring/Summer 2014 collection by Angelos Bratis, presented at the suggestive Sala delle Cariatidi of Palazzo Reale during the Milan Fashion Week. The fashion show of brilliant Greek fashion designer (winner of the talent-scouting award Who Is On Next), enriched by the choral music by Greek band Stereo nova, staged a refined ready to wear: pure lines, being essential and extremely polished at the same time where it shines the cult and sense of construction, light colors, wonderful shirts, precious shorts, silk, cotton and jersey and long goddess dresses emphasizing the natural beauty of body and its movements under the sign of freedom and consciousness. Dresses to think about that talk about the contemporary woman and her elegance.

Leggerezza che diventa intellegibile e sartorialità, dialogo aperto e sfida tra il creativo e la materia, il tessuto, una continua ricerca che dà vita a nuovi volumi e celebra la silhouette e il suo dinamismo. Una estetica che omaggia la naturalezza, fluidità, femminilità e il lirismo classico della Grecità. Questi i principali protagonisti della splendida collezione primavera/estate 2014 di Angelos Bratis, presentata nella suggestiva Sala delle Cariatidi del Palazzo Reale durante la Milan Fashion Week. La sfilata del brillante fashion designer greco(vincitore del talent-scouting award Who Is On Next), arricchita dalle corali musiche della band greca Stereo Nova, ha messo in scena un raffinato pret â porter: linee pure, essenziali e al tempo stesso estremamente ricercate in cui splende il culto e il senso della costruzione, colori tenui, meravigliose camicie, preziosi shorts; seta, cotone, jersey e lunghi abiti da dea enfatizzano la naturale bellezza del corpo e dei suoi movimenti all’ insegna di libertà e consapevolezza. Abiti per pensare che parlano della donna contemporanea e della sua eleganza.

The empowered femininity has shined and celebrated by the genius Jean Paul Gaultier in the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 haute couture collection he made, presented in Rome during the latest edition of Altaroma, which featured the patterns and sophisticated constructions being a leitmotiv of his work: corsets, stripes, transparencies, fringes evoking art deco suggestions, lace, sequins and fur (who was proud of using, as he asserted during the press conference I attended at the Hotel Flora Baglioni).

The man has appeared in this fashion show, a charming contemporary glampire has “turned into an object”, as the couturier said, emphasizing the force and theatricality of the woman he depicted. A enchanting event as well as a successful chance to meet and enjoy a legendary creative, who was extremely generous and modest during the press conference, also answering to the controversial questions of some Italian journalists (concerning the models and celebrities who would featured in the fashion show and other ones belonging to the same standard).

Instead me, I has been religiously silent, preferring hearing him, who generously spoke Italian and celebrated Rome, its suggestions, the Italian culture which has very relevant in its training as creative and individual (later, at the end of press conference I talked with him about Italian film, who has been very inspiring for him, about Federico Fellini and Luchino Visconti) and hearing  the President of Altaroma Silvia Venturini Fendi who made concrete a laudable work developing contemporary fashion, its culture under the sign of art and internationality.

L’ emancipata femminilità ha brillato ed è stata celebrata dal geniale Jean Paul Gaultier nella collezione alta moda autunno/inverno 2013-2014 da lui realizzata, presentata a Roma in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma di cui sono stati protagonisti i motivi e le sofisticate costruzioni che sono un leitmotiv della sua opera: bustier, righe, trasparenze, frange che evocano suggestioni art decò, pizzo, paillettes, trasparenze e pelliccia ( che è stato fiero di usare, amando la pelliccia, come costui ha affermato durante la conferenza stampa a cui ho partecipato presso l’ Hotel Flora Baglioni).

L’ uomo è apparso in questa sfilata, un affascinante vampiro glam contemporaneo, trasformato in oggetto, come couturier ha detto, enfatizzando la forza e teatralità della donna da lui ritratta. Un incantevole evento che è stato anche una felice occasione per conoscere vis à vis e apprezzare un leggendario creativo che è stato estremamente generoso e modesto durante la conferenza stampa, rispondendo anche alle discutibili domande di alcune giornaliste italiane( inerenti le modelle e celebrities che avrebbero partecipato alla sfilata unitamente ad altre della medesima levatura).

Invece religiosamente silente, ho preferito ascoltarlo, il quale ha generosamente parlato in italiano e celebrato Roma, le sue suggestioni, la cultura italiana che ha avuto un ruolo molto significativo nella sua formazione creativa e individuale (successivamente, alla fine della conferenza stampa ho parlato con lui del cinema italiano, che lo ha ispirato molto, di registi quali Federico Fellini e Luchino Visconti) e ascoltando il Presidente di Altaroma Silvia Venturini Fendi la quale ha concretizzato una felice opera che consolida la moda contemporanea, la sua cultura all’ insegna dell’ arte e l’ internazionalità.

Kindness, refinement, humility, hard-work and honesty are the main features of Angelos Bratis as individual and creative, the Greek fashion designer,  who won some years ago the talent-scouting award WION, featured in a smashing event, included in the calendar of Altaroma latest edition, which was held in Rome, at Palazzo Firenze, suggestive building which hosts the Dante Alighieri cultural institution enchanting place where it was showcased the new creations he made. A successful event to enjoy a bright creative with whom I talked about, exploring the creative alchemies featuring in his work, embodied in the following interview.

Angelos Bratis, photo by Giorgio Miserendino

Angelos Bratis, photo by Giorgio Miserendino

What is your idea of lightness, plasticity and femininity and how this ideas does meet themselves, dialogue and join in your work?

“I like thinking about my clothes seeming like they are suspended on an air thread around the body wearing them. It’ s the body giving shape and volume to the dress and it’ s never the contrary. I adore the complex couture effects evoking simplicity seeming like they are created without any effort. Being natural. I think women’s world and thoughts are plastic shapes continuing to transform themselves. My fashion could not be different”.

Angelos Bratis

Angelos Bratis

To which extent the kalokagathia, the beauty and goddness – ethical and aesthetic paradigm evoking the Greek classicism and your roots – is part of you as individual and is part of your aesthetic research?

“Talking about professional aesthetics, I think my path has been until now the one which had a student, putting in what he made a lot of patience and humility. I was born and raised in a little tailor shop and I learned to appreciate every step of creation made to get the rise of an item. I really wish the fashion I make evokes the sincerity”.

Angelos Bratis, photo by Giorgio Miserendino

The ballet as discipline and  its queen, Pina Bausch – solemn plasticity in motion – evokes the idea of movement you made concrete, work under the sign of sartorialism ( or rather of the sense of cloth, construction and body) and a contemporary timeless elegance, do you agree with that and if you don’t agree with that, what would be the creative alchemies featuring in your work?

“You could not explain that such perfectly. The absolute respect of every cloth, its features, weight, fluidity and limits are the main features of every item. Furthermore sensuality and the body movement are an infinite source of inspiration for me. Instead of considering the alchemies ( which are based on certain recipes) I prefer working by instinct and to be wondered by new solutions there are behind every collection that my hands created”.

L’ IDEA DI LEGGEREZZA DI ANGELOS BRATIS PROTAGONISTA DI ALTAROMA

Gentilezza, raffinatezza, umiltà, operosità e onestà sono i tratti principali di Angelos Bratis quale individuo e creativo, il fashion designer Greco, vincitore anni fa del concorso di talent-scouting WION, è stato protagonista di un formidabile evento, incluso nel calendario dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma che si è tenuto a Roma, presso Palazzo Firenze, suggestivo edificio che ospita l’ istituzione culturale Dante Alighieri, luogo incantevole in cui sono state esposte le sue nuove creazioni. Un felice evento per apprezzare un brillante creativo con il quale ho parlato, esplorando le alchimie creative protagoniste del suo lavoro, racchiuse nell’ intervista che segue.

Angelos Bratis

Angelos Bratis

Qual’ è la tua idea di leggerezza, plasticità e femminilità e in che modo queste idee si incontrano, dialogano e si fondono nella tua opera?

“Mi piace pensare i miei abiti come se forse sospesi da un filo di aria intorno il corpo che gli indossa. È il corpo che dà forma e volume all’ abito e mai il contrario. Adoro gli effetti couture complessi che evocano semplicità come se fossero creati senza nessuno forzo. Naturali. Per me il mondo e i pensieri delle donne sono plastiche e in continua trasformazione e evocazione. La mia moda non poteva essere diversa”.

In che misura la kalokagathia, il bello e buono – paradigma etico ed estetico che evoca la classicità greca e le tue radici – fa parte della tua individualità e della tua ricerca estetica?

“Parlando di etica professionale penso che il mio percorso finora sia stato quello di un studente con tanta pazienza e umiltà. Sono nato e cresciuto dentro una piccola sartoria e ho imparato di apprezzare ogni passo compiuto nella creazione per arrivare a un capo finito. Spero che la mia moda trasmetta sincerità”.

La danza quale disciplina e una sua regina, Pina Bausch – solenne plasticità in motion – evoca l’ idea di movimento da te concretizzata, opera all’ insegna della sartorialità(ovvero senso del tessuto, della costruzione e del corpo) e di una contemporanea eleganza senza tempo, sei d’ accordo anche tu e se così non fosse quali sarebbero le alchimie creative su cui si basa il tuo lavoro?

“Non potevi spiegarlo meglio. L’ assoluto rispetto per ogni tessuto, le sue caratteristiche, peso, fluidità e limiti sono alla base di ogni capo. Poi la sensualità e il movimento del corpo umano sono una infinita fonte di inspirazione per me. Più che alchimie (che si basano su certe ricette) preferisco lavorare con istinto ed essere sorpreso tante volte dalle nuove soluzioni create con le mie stese mani che sono dietro le mie collezioni”.

A catchy tourbillon of events that depict and give to Rome a central and active role in the Italian contemporary fashion scene.

It featured in Milan during the latest edition of White fashion tradeshow event, “Be Blue Be Balestra”, the second edition of an exhibition event which has recently launched in Rome by Altaroma where bright, young fashion designers – as Caterina Gatta, Francesco Ballestrazzi, Alessandro D’ Amico, San Andres, Carta & Costura, Covherlab, Sara Lanzi, Giulia Gobbi, Gianni Serra, A-Lab Milano, Eleonora Niccolai, Flavia La Rocca, Comeforbreakfast, Sofia Bertolli, Alessandra De Tomaso, Benedetta Bruzziches, Greta Boldini, Simone Rainer – paid homage to Renato Balestra, his renowned fashion house and blue, color of his eyes, evidencing haute couture and ready to wear can dialogue and implement a successful synergy under the sign of  tradition and innovation, values made concrete at best by Altaroma, institution which launched this idea( under the presidency of Silvia Venturini Fendi, fashion designer who held , holds and hopefully she continues holding this institutional role, following with the work of renewal, honoring the Rome tradition and fashion history she made). An initiative which has also exported in other cities as it is proved by this event, nullifying that sterile provincialism which often considers cities and institutions competing one against the other(that provincialism which still today impedes from the rise of a national museum of fashion), instead it can be done more – without being heroes -and better just being together, a healthy consciousness to promote, made concrete and share.

È stato protagonista a Milano in occasione dell’ ultima edizione dell’ evento fieristico di moda WhiteBe Blue Be Balestra”, la seconda edizione di un evento espositivo, recentemente lanciato a Roma da Altaroma in cui brillanti, giovani fashion designers – quali Caterina Gatta, Francesco Ballestrazzi, Alessandro D’ Amico, San Andres, Carta & Costura, Covherlab, Sara Lanzi, Giulia Gobbi, Gianni Serra, A-Lab Milano, Eleonora Niccolai, Flavia La Rocca, Comeforbreakfast, Sofia Bertolli, Alessandra De Tomaso, Benedetta Bruzziches, Greta Boldini, Simone Rainer – hanno reso omaggio a Renato Balestra, la sua rinomata casa di moda e il blu, il colore dei suoi occhi, dimostrando che l’ alta moda e il prêt a porter dimostrando che alta moda e prêt a porter possono dialogare e attuare una felice sinergia all’insegna di tradizione e innovazione, valori concretizzati al meglio da Altaroma istituzione che ha lanciato questa idea( sotto la presidenza di Silvia Venturini Fendi, fashion designer che ha rivestito, riveste e spero che continui a rivestire questo ruolo istituzionale, proseguendo con l’ opera di rinnovamento, onorando la tradizione e la storia della moda romana da lei intrapresa). Una iniziativa che è stata anche esportata in altre città, come si evince da questo evento, vanificando quello sterile provincialismo che sovente rappresenta città e istituzioni italiane in concorrenza l’ uno contro l’ altro(quel provincialismo che impedisce ancora oggi la nascita di un museo nazionale della moda), invece insieme si può fare di più – senza essere eroi – e meglio, una salubre consapevolezza da promuovere, concretizzare e condividere.

Raffaella Curiel talking about lightness and femininity and elegance which is all about self-confidence


Raffaella Curiel talking about lightness and femininity and elegance which is all about self-confidence

One day of trunk shows in Rome, fashion shows and exhibitions with a focus on tradition, art and craftsmanship. The day started with press conference with renowned couturier Raffaella Curiel which was held in the suggestive rooms of Hotel Inghilterra, successful chance to appreciate the couturier’s sharpness and irony as well as the craftsmanship embodied in Spring/Summer 2013 collection she made.

Looking at that you can see the name of Valentino has deleted instead the name of Versace is still there, but...


Looking at that you can see the name of Valentino has deleted instead the name of Versace is still there, but…

Later I had been at the National Arts and Folk Traditions Museum (Museo Nazionale delle Arti e Tradizioni Popolari), place where followed an exhibition I announced time ago, “La seduzione dell’ artigianato”, curated by Bonizza Giordani Aragno (https://fashionbeyondfashion.wordpress.com/2012/12/05/creativity-in-open-order-the-seduction-of-craftsmanship-at-the-rome-national-museum-of-arts-and-folk-traditions).

...in the end it has also deleted, along with the thanks

…in the end it has also deleted, along with the thanks

I discovered due to this circumstance the exhibition has been set up without the collaboration of fashion houses ( as it usually happens and it should happen) and therefore as it has evidenced by the flyer there is at the entrance of Museum, brands like Valentino and Versace, pretended the delete of their names. Being the exhibition set up with the clothes of private collectors it has also deleted the thanks to the fashion houses.

Gattinoni Spring/Summer 2013

I discovered that as that has been the set of Gattinoni fashion show, brand designed by Guillermo Mariotto who has the merit of making concrete by using a hilarious aesthetics suggestions coming from contemporary times and political framework, successfully evoking a kind of luxury breakfast at Arcore( renowned Berlusconi’s residency and set of burlesque parties).

Later I moved to the area of Campo dei Fiori to visit A.I. Fair Future, a showcase of high-end craftsmanship and art at the Howtan Space. When I crossed Piazza Farnese to go to the event I was pleased to see a peaceful public protest organized by the Mario Mieli Association for claiming the right of the same sex couple to get married.

Not being a great fan of marriage as I prefer the freedom of loving without being obliged, I think “it doesn’t bind a dream with a contract” as Domenico Modugno sang in “L’ Anniversario”, track censured in Italy during the Seventies which became later the soundtrack for the recognition of rights to the couples of people who aren’t married beyond their gender. I am proud of having attended the public protests concerning this issue during the last years to get more rights, as freedom is a goal for every individual and is the evidence of a democratic and liberal society.

I appreciated at the Howtan Space the creations of many brands and couturiers and their grotesque interpretations on paper made by the brilliant artist Vincenzo Montini.

Then I visited the Hadrian’s Temple for the exhibition Limited/Unlimited, (organized by Altaroma in collaboration with many celebrated brands), featuring limited editions inspired by the theme of red carpet. That has been the chance to see friends I didn’t see since a long time,see again others and meet Goga Ashkenazi, the charming woman who owns the fashion house Vionnet.

MODA, TRADIZIONE & INNOVAZIONE IN MOSTRA AD ALTAROMA

Un giorno di trunk show a Rome, sfilate e mostre incentrate su tradizione, arte e artigianalità. La giornata è cominciata con la conferenza stampa della rinomata couturier Raffaella Curiel che si è tenuta nelle suggestive stanze dell’ Hotel Inghilterra, felice occasione per apprezzare l’ acume e l’ ironia della couturier come anche l’ artigianalità racchiusa nella collezione primavera/estate 2013 da lei realizzata.

Dopo sono stata presso il Museo Nazionale delle Arti e Tradizioni Popolari, luogo in cui proseguiva una mostra da me annunciata tempo fa, “La seduzione dell’ artigianato”, curata da Bonizza Giordani Aragno (https://fashionbeyondfashion.wordpress.com/2012/12/05/creativity-in-open-order-the-seduction-of-craftsmanship-at-the-rome-national-museum-of-arts-and-folk-traditions).

Ho scoperto in ragione di questa circostanza che la mostra è stata allestita senza la collaborazione di case di moda (come solitamente accade e dovrebbe accadere) e perciò come si evince dal flyer che é all’ entrata del Museo, brand quali Valentino e Versace, hanno preteso la cancellazione dei loro nomi. Essendo la mostra stata allestita massimamente con gli abiti di collezionisti privati sono stati anche cancellati i ringraziamenti alle case di moda.

Sylvio Giardina

Sylvio Giardina at the Hadrian’s Temple

Ho scoperto ciò poiché questa era la location della sfilata di Gattinoni, brand disegnato da Guillermo Mariotto che ha il merito di concretizzare, avvalendosi di una ilare estetica, suggestioni provenienti dalla contemporaneità e dalla cornice politica, evocando felicemente una sorta di lussuosa colazione ad Arcore( rinomata residenza di Berlusconi e location di party burlesque).

Gucci

Successivamente mi sono spostata nei dintorni di Campo dei Fiori per visitare A.I. Fair Future, una esposizione di alta artigianalità ed arte presso l’ Howtan Space. Quando ho attraversato Piazza Farnese per recarmi all’ evento sono stata lieta di vedere una pacifica manifestazione di pubblica protesta, organizzata dall’ Associazione Mario Mieli per rivendicare il diritto di sposarsi per le coppie dello stesso sesso.

Non essendo una grande ammiratrice del matrimonio poiché preferisco la libertà di amare senza essere obbligata, penso che “con un contratto non si lega un sogno” come cantava Domenico Modugno in “L’ Anniversario”, brano censurato in Italia negli anni Settanta che successivamente è divenuto la colonna sonora per il riconoscimento dei diritti per le coppie di fatto al di là del loro gender. Sono fiera di aver partecipato alle manifestazioni di protesta pubblica inerenti questa problematica in questi ultimi anni per ottenere più diritti, poiché la libertà è un obiettivo per tutti gli individui ed è la dimostrazione di una società democratica e liberale.

Ho apprezzato all’ Howtan Space le creazioni di molteplici brand e couturier e le loro grottesche interpretazioni su carta realizzate dal brillante artista Vincenzo Montini.

Ho quindi visitato il Tempio di Adriano per la mostra Limited/Unlimited(organizzata da Altaroma in collaborazione con molti celebri brand) di cui sono protagonisti limited editions che si ispirano al tema del red carpet. Ciò è stata l’ occasione per vedere amici che non vedevo da lungo tempo, rivederne altri e conoscere Goga Ashkenazi, l’ affascinante donna, proprietaria della casa di moda Vionnet.
