Nature as a lifestyle under the sign of sustainability, that is what it featured in the ninth edition of Floracult, event ideated by the strong social activist, pioneering fashion designer and farming businesswoman Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai, which was recently held in the Rome countryside, in La Storta at I Casali del Pino. It’s culture, this, made concrete through different events as workshops, book-launches, exhibitions and talks. The sounds, scents and flavors belonging to the natural world along with its little hosts were the main features, a tale enriched by an awesome frame, the enchanting, relaxing and warmth atmosphere which makes this place a special place where to go and come back. That is what I do since seven years and year after year I continue discovering something new concerning the nature, sustainability. I often use to saying I am grateful to have the chance of increasing my modest knowledge concerning this field to which I am very sensitive and deeply connected.

This event becomes more special as it often gives to me the chance to see many things and also sharing all that with some beloved friends. I like reminding two special moments, a talk featuring the architects Antonio Girardi and Cristiana Favretto, focused on sustainable solutions as the Jellyfish hydroponic installation in its further developments which has been presented during the Milan Expo. They also talked about the PNAC, the projecting team joining architecture, botany and interior design coordinated Stefano Mancuso as well as about the way plants can be used as sensors, model for innovation and means to purity the air. That it has witnessed by “Breath”, an installation evidencing to which extent the plants can be filters to remove the pollution there is in the atmosphere. This and other kinds of solutions that are respectful of the world where we live were adopted by some Tuscany areas as Prato, city with which the PNAC is collaborating. Another special interlude has been the conference held by the iconic fashion guru Li Edelkoort and hosted by the bright fashion journalist Antonio Mancinelli. She created Bloom, a magazine launched in 1998 I was pleased to see and read, to increase the contemporary lifestyles inspired by the love for the plants, flowers and garden. It is a precious contribute she gave in order to increase a sustainable way of thinking inside out the realm of fashion, or rather to define fashion in an anti-fashion way, considering the current vision of mainstream connected to this realm. It’s a different way to think, create and make, that until now it has considered just merely pioneering, but it is born to be the only way possible in the forthcoming future. The consciousnesses arising from that, doubts and ideas were many, a precious gift resulting from this moment of culture sharing: to question and have doubts, ideas on the move, the driving forces of a change, something which is really necessary.

 

SUCCEDE A FLORACULT: NATURA, CULTURA & SOSTENIBILITÀ

Natura come stile di vita all’ insegna della sostenibilità è stata protagonista della nona edizione di Floracult, evento ideato dalla fervente attivista nel sociale, pionieristica fashion designer ed imprenditrice agricola Ilaria Venturini Fendi e curato da Antonella Fornai, che si è recentemente tenuto nella campagna romana, a La Storta, presso I Casali del Pino. Cultura, questa, concretizzata attraverso svariati eventi quali workshops, presentazioni di libri, esposizioni e talks. I suoni, profumi e sapori del mondo della natura unitamente ai suoi piccoli ospiti erano i prersonaggi principali, un racconto arricchito da una splendida cornice, l’ incantevole, rilassante e calda atmosfera la quale rende questo luogo un posto in cui andare e ritornare. Questo, ciò che faccio da sette anni e anno dopo anno continuo a scoprire qualcosa di nuovo in tema di natura, sostenibilità. Dico spesso che sono grata di avere la possibilità di accrescere la mia modesta conoscenza in questo ambito verso cui sono molto sensibile e profondamente connessa.

Tale happening diventa ancor più speciale, poiché mi offre anche la possibilità di vedere tante cose nuove e anche condivider tutto ciò con alcuni cari amici. Mi piace ripensare a due momenti speciali, un talk con gli architetti Antonio Girardi e Cristiana Favretto, incentrato su soluzioni sostenibili come l’ installazione idroponica Jellyfish nei suoi ulteriori sviluppi che è stata presentata nell’ occasione dell’ Expo milanese. Costoro hanno anche parlato di PNAC, il team di progettazione che unisce architettura, botanica e interior design coordinato da Stefano Mancuso come anche del modo in cui le piante possano fungere da sensori, modello di innovazione e strumenti per purificare l’ aria. Ciò che dimostra Breath”, installazione che prova in che misura le piante possano essere filtri per rimuovere l’ inquinamento atmosferico. Questo ed altri tipi di soluzioni rispettose dell’ ambiente in cui viviamo sono state adottate in alcune aree della Toscana come Prato, cittadina con cui il PNAC sta collaborando. Altro speciale interludio, la conferenza tenuta dall’ iconica fashion guru Li Edelkoort e moderata dal brillante giornalista di moda Antonio Mancinelli. Costei ha creato Bloom, un magazine lanciato nel 1998 che son stata lieta di vedere e leggere, per incentivare gli stili di vita che si ispirano all’ amore per le piante, i fiori ed il giardino. Un prezioso contributo, il suo, al fine di incrementare un modo sostenibile di pensare dentro e fuori dall’ ambito della moda o meglio definire la moda un una modalità anti-moda, considerando l’ attuale visione di mainstream collegata a questo settore. Un diverso modo di pensare, creare e fare che finora è stato ritenuto meramente pionieristico, ma è destinato ad essere l’ unico modo possibile nel prossimo futuro. Molteplici le consapevolezze, i dubbi e le idee che discendono da ciò, un prezioso regalo, tratto da questo momento di condivisione di cultura: interrogarsi e aver dubbi, idee in movimento, le forze motrici di un cambiamento, qualcosa che è davvero necessario.

I recently visited Penelope, the Brescia cathedral of conceptual fashion created by the one and only Roberta Valentini where the shop windows celebrate the winners of LVMH Prize, more specifically the brand Marques Almeida of the Portuguese fashion designers Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida along with Jacquemus, brand established by the French fashion designer Simon Porte Jacquemus, who was awarded by a special prize. This reveals itself being a double celebration, as the windows pay homage to the contemporary creativity and at the same time fully evidence the ability of a buyer as Roberta to be into the contemporary times, catch, interpret and decode the contemporary fashion, signs of emerging fashion designers that turn into fashion products, become a source of culture, fashion history, witnessing the spirit of people in a certain place and time or rather these times.

I VINCITORI DEL PREMIO LVMH PROTAGONISTI DELLE VETRINE DI PENELOPE

Ho recentemente visitato Penelope, la cattedrale della moda concettuale di Brescia creata dalla sola e unica Roberta Valentini le cui vetrine celebrano i vincitori del Premio LVMH, più specificamente il brand Marques Almeida del duo di fashion designers portoghesi formato da Marta Marques e Paulo Almeida unitamente a Jacquemus, marchio fondato dal fashion designer francese Simon Porte Jacquemus, che è stato insignito di un premio speciale. Questa si rivela una doppia celebrazione, poiché le vetrine rendono omaggio alla creatività contemporanea e al tempo stesso dimostrano in modo tangibile l’ abilità di un buyer come Roberta di essere nella contemporaneità, captare, interpretare la moda contemporanea, i segni dei fashion designer emergenti che si trasformano in prodotti moda, diventano una fonte di cultura, storia della moda, testimoniando lo spirito di un popolo in un certo luogo e tempo ovvero in questa epoca.

The co-branding collection by Carmina Campus and Vibram, photo by N

It has recently presented in Milan at Entrata libera, awesome concept store focused on the search in the realm of design, the collection of accessories made in co-branding by Carmina Campus and Vibram making concrete the categorical imperative “Save waste from waste”. An idea developed by Carmina Campus, brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture created by the bright, overwhelming pioneer fashion designer, farm businesswoman and social activist Ilaria Venturini Fendi and shared today with Vibram, renowned brand producing the rubber soles, which gave rise to a smashing collection of bags, made by re-using the rubber – more precisely, as Ilaria told me, the first rubber plate, resulting from the start of productive process and therefore it is useless -, thus taking away this material from the dump and turning into something wonderful. That evidences which can create without destroying, respecting the environment and earth which host us. It’ another way to see life, the world surrounding us, another way of thinking, working, creating, making and producing fashion, which emphasizes the idea of elegance as bringer of value and values. A healthy ethic is embodied in a vibrant aesthetics where it shines the approach of matter- and reminds me of work by Alberto Burri – and refinement. The many bags, as the nice rubber clutch bags are decorated by little, fun patterns made of rubber as well as other items, joining the rubber to other materials as leather and fur and are genuine passé-partout.

SALUBRI IDEE IN MOVIMENTO: IL LANCIO DELLA COLLEZIONE IN CO-BRANDING DI CARMINA CAMPUS & VIBRAM DA ENTRATA LIBERA

È stata presentata recentemente a Milano presso Entrata libera, fantastico concept store incentrato sulla ricerca nell’ ambito del design, la collezione di accessori realizzata in co-branding da Carmina Campus e Vibram che concretizza l’ imperativo categorico “Save waste from waste”(ovvero “Salva i rifiuti dai rifiuti”). Un’ idea consolidata da Carmina Campus, brand di accessori, gioielli e componenti di arredo creato dalla brillante, inarrestabile, pionieristica fashion designer, imprenditrice agricola e attivista nel sociale Ilaria Venturini Fendi e condivisa oggi con Vibram, rinomato marchio che produce suole di gomma, che ha dato vita a una formidabile collezione di borse, realizzate mediante il riuso della gomma – più precisamente, come Ilaria mi ha raccontato, la prima lastra di gomma, risultato dell’ inizio del processo produttivo e che pertanto è inutilizzabile -, sottraendo perciò questo materiale alla discarica e trasformandolo in qualcosa di meraviglioso. Ciò dimostra che si può creare senza distruggere, rispettando l’ ambiente e la terra che ci ospita. E’ un altro modo di vedere la vita, il mondo che ci circonda, un altro modo di pensare, lavorare, creare, fare e produrre moda che enfatizza l’ idea di eleganza come portatrice di valore e valori. Una salubre etica è racchiusa in una vibrante estetica in cui splende il sapiente approccio materico – che mi richiama alla mente l’ opera di Alberto Burri – e la raffinatezza. Le varie borse, le clutch di gomma sono decorate da piccoli divertenti motivi di gomma, come anche altri modelli che uniscono la gomma ad altri materiali quali pelle, pelliccia e sono autentici passé-partout.

ZITA

God save Zita” is the event which was recently held in Rome to celebrate the 51st anniversary of the renowned concept store of Zita Fabiani. A joyful atmosphere was enriched by the olfactive suggestions by the bright alchemist and aromatorius Meo Fusciuni – telling about his journeys, experiences and memories through the parfume – where he presented the new scent, “Narcotico”, a hypnotic scent , giving rise to the Mystic cycle(. It’s all about a backwards journey to deal with the future, a song of the everyday life’s holiness is what the perfume embodies. Strong emotions, arising with a silent and deep dialogue with the inner self, emphasized by the notes of incense, benjamin along with the tonka sweetening the olfactive pyramid, including a smashing play of contrast made of patchouli and agar wood, vanilla and musk). Genuineness and healthy ideas on the move, the ones by Ilaria Venturini Fendi, pioneer fashion designer and social activist, creator of brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture Carmina Campus, promoting the culture of re-use, also featured in the event. Here it was presented the “Pictogram bags”, bags inspired by the pictogram designs (made of beverage can bottoms, leather sample swatches and leather leftovers, scraps of PVC, nylon fabrics or other waterproof materials) along with the “Space waste bags” (made of black rubbish bag, flawed technical materials or job lots, the base of aluminum cans, leather leftovers or leather sample swatches) by the brand. It was a nice interlude under the sign of lightness, fun and spontaneity which gave the chance to customers and enthusiasts to know and talk directly with the creators about the products they made, making closer two realms that are usually far away: the creativity and the consumption.

“GOD SAVE ZITA”: MEO FUSCIUNI & CARMINA CAMPUS FESTEGGIANO IL CONCEPT STORE DI ROMA ZITA FABIANI

2

God save Zita” è l’ evento che si è recentemente tenuto a Roma  per festeggiare il 51° anniversario del rinomato concept store di Zita Fabiani. Una gioiosa atmosfera, arricchita dalle suggestioni olfattive del brillante alchimista e aromatario Meo Fusciuni – che parla di viaggi, esperienze e ricordi attraverso –  durante la quale ha presentato la nuova fragranza, “Narcotico”, un profumo ipnotico che dà vita al Ciclo della Mistica(. È un viaggio a ritroso per affrontare il futuro, un canto della sacralità del quotidiano. Forti emozioni che nascono da un dialogo silente e profondo con l’ interiorità, enfatizzato da note di incenso, benzoino unitamente alla fava tonka che addolcisce la piramide olfattiva, comprensiva di un formidabile gioco di contrasti fatto di patchouli and agarwood, vaniglia e muschio). Genuinità e salubri idee in movimento, quelle di Ilaria Venturini Fendi, pionieristica fashion designer e attivista del sociale, creatrice del brand di accessori, gioielli e componenti di arredo Carmina Campus che promuove la cultura del riuso è stata anche lei protagonista dell’ evento. Ivi è sono state presentate le “Pictogram bags”, borse che si ispirano alla grafica dei pittogrammi( realizzate con fondi di lattina, cartelle colori, ritagli di pelle, scarti di pvc, nylon o altri materiali waterproof) insieme alle “Space waste bags” (create con sacchi neri della spazzatura, tecno materiali difettati o fondi di magazzino, la base delle lattine di alluminio, ritagli di pelle e pelle recuperata da cartelle colori) del marchio. Un simpatico interludio all’ insegna di leggerezza, divertimento e spontaneità che ha offerto la possibilità ai clienti e agli entusiasti di conoscere e parlare direttamente con i creatori dei loro prodotti, avvicinando due ambiti che solitamente sono lontani: la creatività ed il consumo.

“Nothing is created, nothing is destroyed, everything transforms”. The principle of conservation of matter by Antoine Lavoisier becomes a successful metaphor to talk about Carmina Campus and the creative alchemies featuring in the Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Plastic, recycled paper, leather scraps and color samples join, transform, becoming little, big masterpieces of design. Waste becomes fashion. That is the result arising from the creative flair Ilaria Venturini Fendi, bright fashion designer, farming businesswoman and social activist, made concrete by Carmina Campus, brand of accessories, jewelry and furniture she created, promoting the culture of re-use. It’s a new luxury, made of craftsmanship, irony and consciousness. Bags, clutch bags, wallets, mobile phone-cases – condom cases, laudable initiative being part of a campaign to prevent HIV – Ipad cases, jewelry talking about a conscious lifestyle and a healthy ethic. The beautiful and good, the kalokagathia, a political and poetic idea starts to be part of everyday life through fashion and fashion product which is the medium. Refined lines, fun combination of colors and materials under the sign of lightness, comfort and elegance give rise to genuine passé-partout.

ARTIGIANALITÀ, IRONIA E CONSAPEVOLEZZA: IL NUOVO LUSSO DI CARMINA CAMPUS

“Nulla si crea, nulla si distrugge, ma tutto si trasforma”. Il principio di conservazione della materia di Antoine Lavoisier diviene una felice metafora per parlare di Carmina Campus e delle alchimie creative della collezione primavera/estate 2015. Plastica, carta riciclata, cascami di pelle e palette colori si uniscono e si trasformano,diventando piccoli, grandi capolavori di design. Lo scarto diventa moda. Questo il risultato dell’ estro creativo di Ilaria Venturini Fendi, brillante fashion designer, imprenditrice agricola e attivista del sociale, concretizzato da Carmina Campus, brand di accessori, gioielli e componenti d’ arredo da lei creato che promuove la cultura del riuso. Un nuovo lusso, fatto di artigianalità, ironia e consapevolezza. Borse, clutch, portafogli, porta-telefonini – porta preservativi, lodevole iniziativa che fa parte di una campagna per la prevenzione dell’ HIV – porta-Ipad, gioielli che parlano di uno stile di vita consapevole e di un’ etica salubre. Il bello e il buono, la kalokagathia, un pensiero politico e poetico entra a far parte della quotidianità mediante la moda e il prodotto moda che ne diventa il medium. Linee raffinate, divertenti combinazioni di colori e materiali all’ insegna di leggerezza, comfort ed eleganza danno vita ad autentici passé-partout.

La brillante fashion designer Ilaria Venturini Fendi (del brand Carmina Campus) nelle vesti di ambasciatrice dell’ Onlus NPS Italia Onlus ha creato “Ovunque proteggimi”, un porta-preservativo che racchiude in sé la cultura del riuso – in quanto è stato realizzato avvalendosi dei campioni di pelle presenti nella cartella colori – e un pizzico di ironia, poiché questo imperativo categorico ricorda l’ invocazione ai santi che si trovava all’ interno delle automobili negli anni Sessanta. Questo accattivante e utile accessorio, chef a parte della campagna “Stiamo sicuri” lanciata dall’ Onlus NPS Italia per prevenire l’ HIV, realizzata in collaborazione con All (associazione per la protezione dei diritti umani creata da Rosaria Iardino, che è anche il Presidente Onorario dell’ Onlus NPS Italia ed Adelaide Corbetta) insieme all’ associazione Donne in rete, è disponibile presso la boutique di Roma RE(f)USE in Via della Fontanella Borghese 40, nella celebre boutique di  Roma Degli Effetti in Piazza Capranica 93, da Penelope, la cattedrale di Brescia della moda concettuale della sola e unica Roberta Valentini  e nel rinomato concept store di Milano 10 Corso Como. Un simpatico feticcio da avere per vivere  consapevolmente la propria vita, proteggendo la propria salute.
