The legendary British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood celebrates the successful continuation of the successful partnership with the Ethical Fashion Initiative( she started five years ago), a laudable project launched by the ITC (International Trade Centre an UN Agency working in the realm of ethical fashion to emancipate the Africa people from poverty through the work and its training) with a limited edition of Africa bags collection, made by artisans in Kenya. Over the past five years the involvement of the fashion designer has supported thousands of micro-producers from marginalized communities in these regions, developing their artisan skills and improving their financial prospects. This has promoted the growth of sustainable business instead of aid dependency. Craftsmanship and ideas on the move are impressed in the Africa bags that resonate with the activism of the queen of punk, are embodied in more the design, materials used  that raise questions on critical issues such as climate change and waste.

UNA COLORATA CELEBRAZIONE: LA DECIMA PARTNERSHIP DI VIVIENNE WESTWOOD CON L’ ITC

La leggendaria fashion designer inglese Vivienne Westwood celebrate la felice prosecuzione della partnership con l’ Ethical Fashion Initiative (da lei avviata cinque anni fa), un lodevole progetto lanciato dall’ ITC (Centro del Commercio Internazionale Trade Centre un’ Agenzia dell’ ONU che opera nell’ ambito della moda ethical per emancipare le popolazioni dell’ Africa dalla povertà attraverso il lavoro e la sua formazione) con  una limited edition  della collezione di Africa bags, realizzate da artigiani in Kenya. Nell’ arco di cinque anni il coinvolgimento della stilista ha sostenuto migliaia di micro-produttori provenienti da comunità che vivono ai margini in queste regioni, consolidando il loro talento da artigiani e migliorando la loro situazione finanziaria. Ciò ha promosso la crescita di un’ impresa sostenibile, diversamente dalla dipendenza derivante dagli aiuti umanitari. Artigianalità e idee in movimento sono impresse nelle Africa bags che risuonano dell’ attivismo della regina del, racchiuse nel design e nei materiali usati che si interrogano su problematiche critiche quali il cambiamento climatico e i rifiuti.

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.

Fashion as lifestyle, a unique aestethics depicting an asserting and ironic femininity – making fun of conventional clichés – and a vibrant ethic under the sign of social activism. That is the world of genius British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, who is considered as the queen of punk. Environment, climate, sustainability and freedom are the realms (as the campaign to promote the free information, support Wikileaks and its creator Julian Assange) supported by the fashion designer, creator also of a smashing blog, Active Resistance. The name of blog is a categorical imperative embodied in a Manifesto, focused on a practice, the search for culture and the thinking to change its own life and the world. “We have the choice to become more cultivated and therefore more human – or by muddling along as usual we shall remain the destructive and self-destroying animal, the victim of our own cleverness (To be or not to be)”. That is what the Manifesto asserts featuring as travellers who accompany Active Resistance, Alice, Pinocchio, Art Lover (an anthropologist), True Poet (an alchemist). This journey to find art shows that art gives culture and that culture is the antidote to propaganda (a leitmotiv of contemporary times including, as Aldous Huxley said, three evils: nationalistic idolatry, non-stop distractions and organized lying). These ideas aren’t just words flying on the air, but they become facts, actions and join to the creativity of Vivienne Westwood, becoming things, objects, garments. That shines in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection of Vivienne Westwood Gold Label, featuring the tartan woven from Burkina Fasu and accessories, made in Kenya by the Nairobi artisans. A successful initiative arising from the teaming with the ITC, a UN Agency, in order to emancipate from poverty the African people through work.

Moda come stile di vita, una estetica unica dipinge una femminilità ironica ed assertiva – che beffeggia i cliché convenzionali – e una vibrante etica all’ insegna dell’ attivismo nel sociale. Questo è il mondo della geniale fashion designer inglese Vivienne Westwood che è considerata la regina del punk. Ambiente, clima, sostenibilità e libertà, gli ambiti sostenuti (come anche la campagna per promuovere la libera informazione, supportare Wikileaks e il suo creatore Julian Assange) dalla fashion designer, creatrice anche di un formidabile blog, Active Resistance. Il nome del blog è un imperativo categorico, racchiuso in un Manifesto, incentrato su una pratica: la ricerca di cultura e il pensare di cambiare la propria vita e il mondo. “Abbiamo la facoltà di scelta di diventare più colti e perciò più umani – oppure tirando a campare come al solito, possiamo rimanere animali distruttivi e autodistruttivi, vittime della nostra astuzia (Essere o non essere)”. Questo è ciò che afferma il Manifesto di cui sono protagonisti nelle vesti di compagni di viaggio di Active Resistance, Alice, Pinocchio, L’ Amante dell’ Arte (un antropologo), il Vero Poeta (un alchimista). Questo viaggio per trovare l’ arte dimostra che l’ arte trasmette cultura e che quest’ ultima è l’ antidoto alla propaganda( un leitmotiv della contemporaneità che include, come sosteneva Aldous Huxley, tre mali: l’ idolatria nazionalistica, continue follie e la menzogna organizzata). Tali idee non sono mere parole che volano nell’ aria, ma diventano fatti, azioni e si uniscono alla creatività di Vivienne Westwood, diventando cose, oggetti, indumenti. Ciò splende nella collezione primavera/estate 2014 di Vivienne Westwood Gold Label che ha quale protagonista il tessuto tartan del Burkina Fasu ed accessori, realizzati in Kenya dagli artigiani di Nairobi. Una felice iniziativa che nasce dalla collaborazione con l’ ITC, una agenzia ONU, al fine di emancipare dalla povertà la popolazione africana attraverso il lavoro.

Rosy Biffi goes ahead, the pioneer renowned buyer and owner of Milan Biffi boutiques, making a further step in supporting emerging creatives and promoting an healthy ethic as well as a healthy marketing idea, featuring the “givers” – the ones who are generous, focused on giving without thinking about an expectation or an immediate benefit arising from that and have the courage and the open-minded attitude to believe and concretely invest on an idea considering the development of a long-term business plan, as it is evidenced by the management professor and author Adam Grant in the book he wrote “Give and take” Sperling & Kupfer, 18,00 Euros – brings out of the catwalk and hosts on 17th September 2013 at the Biffi boutique in Corso Genova 6during the Milan edition of fashion event Vogue Fashion Night’s Out  a panel of creatives, Stella Jean, Portenier Roth, Kiki Clothing and Christie Brown, who featured in An Ethical Initiative, event created by Altaroma and UN agency ITC , included in the Altaroma latest edition. Another laudable initiative under the sign of ethical fashion – considered in its wide meaning, including manufacture as well as a vibrant concept – which has a bright purpose: to give the chances to bright creatives of being discovered and appreciated by the audience, by the ones who could buy the creations they made. I really wish this idea promoted by Rosy Biffi, who had and has the smartness and generosity to support emerging talents, spreads and is used in the other realms of fashion system. That would be an added value for the made in Italy as well as for the fashion system considered as a whole. A not to be missed happening to enjoy fashion and its suggestions, the individual value and values.

Rosy Biffi va avanti, la pionieristica, rinomata buyer e proprietaria delle boutiques di Milano Biffi, compiendo un ulteriore passo nel sostegno di creativi emergenti e promozione di una salubre etica e idea di marketing di cui sono protagonisti i “givers” come lei – coloro che sono generosi, dediti a dare senza pensare a una aspettativa o a un immediato beneficio da esso derivante e hanno il coraggio e l’ apertura mentale di credere e investire concretamente su un’ idea, prendendo in considerazione lo sviluppo di business plan a lungo termine, come è stato dimostrato dal docente di management professore e scrittore Adam Grant nel libro da lui realizzato “Più dai Più hai. Un approccio rivoluzionario al successo” Sperling & Kupfer, 18,00 Euro -, porta fuori dalla passerella e ospita il 17 settembre 2013 presso la boutique Biffi in Corso Genova 6, in occasione dell’ edizione di Milano dell’ evento moda Vogue Fashion Night’s Out un gruppo di creativi, Stella Jean, Portenier Roth, Kiki Clothing e Christie Brown che sono stati protagonisti di An Ethical Initiative, evento creato da Altaroma e dall’ agenzia dell’ ONU ITC e incluso nell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma. Un’ altra lodevole iniziativa all’ insegna della moda ethical – considerata nella sua accezione più ampia che include la manifattura come anche un vibrante concept – che ha una brillante finalità: offrire la possibilità a brillanti creativi di essere scoperti e apprezzati dal pubblico, da coloro che potrebbero comprare le loro creazioni. Mi auguro vivamente che questa idea, promossa da Rosy Biffi, la quale ha avuto e ha l’ intelligenza e generosità di sostenere i talenti emergenti si sparga e sia usata in altri ambiti del sistema moda. Ciò sarebbe un valore aggiunto per il made in Italy come anche per il sistema moda considerato nella sua interezza. Un imperdibile evento per apprezzare la moda e le sue suggestioni, il valore individuale e i valori.
