A celebration, the 50th birthday of Rome Costume & Fashion Academy, which coincided with the opening of its new academic year and with the launch of book “Accademia Costume & Moda 1964-2014” by Maria di Napoli Rampolla and Antonio Mancinelli, was recently held in Rome at the Rome Costume & Fashion Academy. The afternoon event was under the sign of fashion. There were many celebrated personas from the fashion realm as Beppe Modenese, Anna Fendi, Piero Tosi, Adriano Franchi, Fabiana Balestra, Fabio Quaranta, Deanna Ferretti Veroni, Laura Lusuardi, Donata Sartorio, Alessandra Spalletti, Maria Luisa Frisa, the ex-alumni of Academy Tommaso Aquilano, Maurizio Galante and Sylvio Giardina. Here it was hosted a talk moderated by Cinzia Malvini which featured the creative director of Gucci fashion house Frida Giannini, who was a student of Academy. The fashion designer talked about creativity as “result of a team work”. Concerning young creatives she is focused on “observing the hand, the way they draw, as the instinct and vision of free hand makes the difference”. She talked about her experience made working at Fendi fashion house “where she learnt to be in place as today it’s important how to approach”, considering there is a Wikipedia culture today in many realms”. A video, introduced by Cinzia Malvini told about the Women association she launched and an live music event featuring Beyonce, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Florence & the Machine and many others. The association made concrete over 390 projects supporting the women. The talk with Frida Giannini ended with her suggestion for the student: let’s study, work hard and have fun”. Later, another ex-alumnus, the fashion journalist Antonio Mancinelli talked about his experience. He wanted to work as fashion designer and during the study at the Academy he changed his path and came to the journalism. He considered the wearability as value and result of a suggestion given him in the form of a question by Rosana Pistolese, the founder of Academy, arising from the view of a creation he made: “is it wearable?”, she asked him. Antonio said yes, it was, but naturally it was not. And since this experience, that became a paradigm to look at fashion, “something which always features in the Gucci collections Frida made, the wearability, their being wearable and super glamourous”. He considered “Rosana Pistolese as a kind of human Facebook, as she catalysed a series of important personas”. Later it was told about the book celebrating the fifty years of Academy, a book made with the support and collaboration with Altaroma and Alcantara along with the initiatives of Academy as the creations of the ex-alumni Association in order to give them working opportunities. A successful event depicting the laudable work of a bright Institution.

Una celebrazione, il 50° compleanno dell’ Accademia di Costume & Moda di Roma, in concomitanza con l’ apertura del suo nuovo anno accademico e la presentazione del libro “Accademia Costume & Moda 1964-2014” a cura di Maria di Napoli Rampolla e Antonio Mancinelli, si è recentemente tenuta a Roma presso l’ Accademia di Costume e Moda di Roma. L’ evento pomeridiano è stato all’ insegna della moda. Presenti molteplici celebri personaggi della moda quali Beppe Modenese, Anna Fendi, Piero Tosi, Adriano Franchi, Fabiana Balestra, Fabio Quaranta, Deanna Ferretti Veroni, Laura Lusuardi, Donata Sartorio, Alessandra SpallettiMaria Luisa Frisa, gli ex-allievi dell’ Accademia Tommaso Aquilano, Maurizio Galante e Sylvio Giardina. Ivi è stato ospitato un talk moderato dalla giornalista Cinzia Malvini di cui è stato protagonista il direttore creativo della casa di moda Gucci Frida Giannini, che è stata una studentessa dell’ Accademia. La fashion designer ha parlato di creatività come “risultato di un lavoro di gruppo”. Riguardo ai giovani creativi si è concentrata sull’ “osservare la mano, il modo in cui disegnano, perché l’ istinto e la visione della mano libera fà la differenza”. Ha raccontato la sua esperienza di lavoro presso la casa di moda Fendi “dove ha imparato a stare al proprio posto, poiché oggi è importante come comportarsi”, considerando che “oggi c‘ è una cultura da Wikipedia un po’ su tutti i fronti”. Un video, presentato da Cinzia Malvini parlava dell’ Associazione per le Donne da lei lanciata e di un evento musicale con  Beyonce, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Florence & the Machine e molti altri. L’ associazione ha concretizzato più di 390 progetti a sostegno delle donne. Il talk con Frida Giannini si è concluso con un simpatico monito da lei dato  agli studenti: “studiate, impegnatevi e divertitevi”. Successivamente, un altro ex-allievo, il giornalista di moda Antonio Mancinelli ha parlato della sua esperienza all’ Accademia. Voleva lavorare come fashion designer e durante gli studi all’ Accademia ha cambiato il suo percorso ed è approdato al giornalismo. Costui ha preso in considerazione la portabilità come valore e risultato di un suggerimento a lui dato in forma di domanda da Rosana Pistolese, la fondatrice dell’ Accademia, derivante dalla visione di una sua creazione: “lo indosseresti?”, chiese a lui. Antonio rispose di si, ma naturalmente il capo non era indossabile. E a partire da questa esperienza, ciò è divenuto un suo paradigma per guardare la moda e qualcosa che appare sempre nelle collezioni Gucci realizzate da Frida: la indossabilità, l’ esser portabili e super glamourous. Riteneva “Rosana Pistolese una sorta di Facebook umano, perché catalizzava una serie di personaggi importanti”. A seguire si è parlato del libro che celebra i cinquanta anni dell’ Accademia, un libro realizzato con il sostegno e la collaborazione di Altaroma ed Alcantara unitamente alle iniziative dell’ Accademia quali la creazione di un’ Associazione di ex-alunni al fine di offrire opportunità lavorative. Un felice evento che ritrae il lodevole lavoro di una brillante istituzione.

God there is Marco! That is what I immediately think about, talking about Marco De Vincenzo and the work he made or rather the Spring/Summer 2014 collection, presented during the Milan Fashion Week, of whose fashion show has emphasized by the styling curated by Giovanna Battaglia. The fashion designer who is born in Messina and based in Rome, winner years ago of the talent scouting award Who Is On Next, year after year continued his bright work of experimentation, giving rise to many expressions of his sophisticated, graphic minimalism. It shines a constructivist core, made more soft, fluid and intelligible, successfully made concrete in many shapes.

The Sangallo powder pink colored becomes pleats, combined to delicate green stripes. A play of graphismes is embodied in the enchanting prints and the other patterns of collection under the sign of plasticity and dynamism. Short lines of shorts, shirts and dresses, lines covering and caressing the knee, define the silhouette, enhanced by a palette of colors including light colors along with red, blue, black, green, brown, grey, white, silver, gold and copper.

The bright search for clothes joining to leather, volumes, precious details and accessories express the adherence to his concept and the deep coherence, value which is a virtue and a bravery, considering how much it’s hard today for an emerging and talented creative to develop a collection, make know its own brand and commercialize it. In fact the creative often comes under pressure arising from the market, its needs that put first a product which is easily comprehensible and recognizable (and that also results from the way is presented and communicated a product, obviously I consider to the world of virtual and paper media which often creates a plethora of false epiphanies, giving rise to semiotic pathologies or rather difficulties in decoding a product in terms of concept, creativity and styling which affects different realms of the fashion system and in the end also affects the consumers’ choice) in detriment to the experimentation and the real ready to wear. Instead Marco was brave and he won, increasing the interest of the luxury group LVHM in investing in his brand, evidencing the courage and talent rewards.

 

MENOMALE CHE C’ È MARCO! IL CORAGGIO DI SPERIMENTARE DI MARCO DE VINCENZO

Menomale che c’è Marco! Questo è ciò che mi viene subito in mente, parlando di Marco De Vincenzo e del suo lavoro ovvero della collezione primavera/estate 2014, presentata durante la Milan Fashion Week, la cui sfilata è stata enfatizzata dal brillante styling di Giovanna Battaglia. Il fashion designer natio di Messina e residente a Roma, vincitore anni fa del talent scouting award Who Is On Next, anno dopo anno ha continuato la sua brillante opera di sperimentazione, dando vita a molteplici espressioni del suo sofisticato minimalismo grafico. Splende un cuore costruttivista, reso più morbido, fluido e intellegibile, felicemente concretizzato in molteplici forme.

Il sangallo color cipria diventa plissé, accompagnato da delicate righe verdi. Un gioco di grafismi, è incorporato nelle incantevoli stampe e negli altri motivi della collezione all’ insegna della plasticità e del dinamismo. Linee corte di shorts, gonne e abiti, linee che coprono e accarezzano il ginocchio definiscono la silhouette, valorizzata da una palette di colori che include colori tenui unitamente a rosso, blu, verde, marrone, nero grigio, bianco, argento, oro e bronzo.

La brillante ricerca di tessuti che si uniscono alla pelle, volumi, preziosi dettagli e accessori esprime la aderenza al concept e la sua viva coerenza, valore che è una virtù e un atto di coraggio, considerando quanto sia difficile oggi per un creativo emergente e talentuoso dar vita a una collezione, far conoscere il proprio marchio e commercializzarlo. Spesso infatti il creativo subisce pressioni derivanti dal mercato, dalle sue esigenze che privilegiano un prodotto facilmente decifrabile e riconoscibile (e ciò deriva anche dal modo in cui un prodotto è presentato e comunicato, ovviamente mi riferisco al mondo della comunicazione virtuale e cartacea che sovente genera una pletora di false epifanie, producendo patologie semiotiche ovvero difficoltà nel decifrare un prodotto in termini di concept, creatività e styling che inficia vari ambiti del sistema moda e da ultimo influenza anche le scelte dei consumatori) a discapito della sperimentazione e del vero pret â porter. Marco invece è stato coraggioso e ha vinto, suscitando l’ interesse del polo del lusso LVHM a investire sul suo marchio, dimostrando che il coraggio e il talento premiano.
