Kate Moss, iconic model, features in a shooting made by the celebrated photographer Mario Testino for the Vogue Brasil issue, celebrating its 36th anniversary – including famous Brasil personas as Pelè the architect Oscar Niemeyer and other ones – where she wears just only the shoe-guitar, accessory being also a musical instrument, created by designer Max Kibardin & Chicks On Speed, making me think about the strong connection the model has to music and reminding me the smashing track by Primal Scream “Some velvet morning” interpreted by her.

Kate Moss, iconica modella, è protagonista di uno shooting realizzato dal celebre fotografo Mario Testino per l’edizione di Vogue Brasil che celebra il suo 36° anniversario – include famosi personaggi del Brasile quali Pelè, l’architetto Oscar Niemeyer ed altri – in cui indossa soltanto la shoe-guitar, accessorio che è anche uno strumento musicale, creato dal designer Max Kibardin & Chicks On Speed, mi fa pensare al forte legame che ha la modella con la musica e mi ricorda il formidabile video del brano dei Primal Scream “Some velvet morning” da lei interpretato.

Max Kibardin Fall/Winter 2011-2012

I recently visited the show-room of bright and ironic shoes designer Max Kibardin in Milan to enjoy the Fall/Winter 2011-2012 collection, featuring luxury creations successfully joining luxury, a simple and modern line, refined leathers and precious details, including also the latest chapter – after the smashing shoe-guitar – of collaboration with Alex Murray-Leslie, front-woman of band and avant-garde artistic collective Chicks On Speed, suggestive hand-painted stilettos that – as Alex told me – will be worn in the forthcoming performance by Chicks On Speed where they will be totally naked, wearing just only the stilettos.

Ho recentemente visitato lo show-room del brillante e ironico designer di calzature Max Kibardin a Milano per vedere la collezione autunno/inverno 2011-2012 di cui sono protagoniste lussuose creazioni che felicemente uniscono lusso, una linea semplice e moderna, raffinati pellami, dettagli preziosi e includono anche l’ultimo capitolo – dopo la shoe-guitar – della collaborazione con Alex Murray-Leslie, leader della band e collettivo artistico d’avanguardia Chicks On Speed, suggestive decolletée dipinte a mano che – come mi ha raccontato Alex – saranno indossate dalle Chicks On Speed nella loro prossima performance in cui saranno senza vestiti, indossando soltanto le scarpe.

It’s not only rock’ n’ roll baby!”, a wonderful exhibition under the sign of contemporary times – which will be opened on 23rd June 2010, 6:00 pm, at the Milan Triennale Bovisa, 6:00 pm, curated by the eclectic and pioneer Jerome Sans who successfully evidenced by the projects he organized during the last two decades – as the exhibition “Live” at the Palais de Tokyo, solo exhibitions of artists as the Chicks On Speed, Brian Eno and also creating a rock band, the Liquid Architecture – that “music is the raw materials of many plastic artists”. Thus the bright and charming curator asserts who talked with enthusiasm about his project and the privileged relationship between music and art:“an intimate and unusual story” of a series of artists – as Andy, Antony, Devendra Banhart, Bianca Casady, Chicks On Speed, Peter Doherty, Herman Dune, Kyle Field, Fischerspooner, The Kills, Patti Smith and Alan Vega – “for whom art is the root of a parallel artistic universe”. The exhibition will be open to public from 24th June to 26th September 2010: a not to be missed happening for all the ones who are devoted to art and cross-culture!

It’s not only rock’ n’ roll baby!”, una mostra meravigliosa all’insegna della contemporaneità- che sarà inaugurata il 23 giugno 2010, alle ore 18:00, presso il Pala Bovisa della Triennale di Milano, curata dall’eclettico e pionieristico Jerome Sans che ha felicemente mostrato con i progetti da lui organizzato durante gli ultimi due decenni – quali la mostra Live al Palais de Tokyo, le mostre monografiche di artisti quali le Chicks On Speed, Brian Eno e creando anche un gruppo rock, i Liquid Architecture – che la musica sia la materia prima di numerosi artisti plastici. Così afferma il brillante e charmant curatore che mi ha parlato entusiasta del suo progetto e della relazione privilegiata che intercorre tra la musica e l’arte:“una storia intima e singolare” di una serie di artisti – quali Andy, Antony, Devendra Banhart, Bianca Casady, Chicks On Speed, Peter Doherty, Herman Dune, Kyle Field, Fischerspooner, The Kills, Patti Smith e Alan Vega – “per i quali l’arte è la radice di un universo artistico trasversale”. La mostra sarà aperta al pubblico dal 24 giugno al 26 settembre 2010: un appuntamento imperdibile per tutti coloro che sono devoti all’arte e alla contro-cultura!
