Artisanal Intelligence (A.I.)”Body for the dress”, a nice showcase under the sign of art, fashion and craftsmanship, curated by Clara Tosi Pamphili and Alessio De’ Navasques  which was held during the Altaroma latest edition at the suggestive buildings of La Dogana – a huge industrial building – which yesterday hosted an ancient railway station, placed in the Rome area of San Lorenzo, the one which has resisted against the German attacks during the Second World War of whose tracks are still impressed in many buildings –  featured the works by visual artists as the bright Sacha Turchi, who made a sculpture evoking the spinal column, the structure of human body. Constructions, clear signs embodying visions as the ones by Giacomo Frasson and Giulia Roman, graduated students from the Fashion Design Faculty of Iuav University of Venice, as well as by Melampo, brand created by Lulù and Anna Poletti, Brighenti – renowned Rome boutique, which made the lingerie for actresses and showgirls – and others who have drawn an artistic path, successfully putting the light on the energies and ideas, featuring in the contemporary times where the new reads again the old to find a way to go, though the destination is still unknown.

Artisanal Intelligence (A.I.)”Body for the dress”, una simpatica rassegna sotto il segno di arte, moda e artigianalità, curata da Clara Tosi Pamphili e Alessio De’ Navasques che si è tenuta in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma presso i suggestivi edifici de La Dogana – un enorme costruzione industriale  che ieri ha ospitato un’ antica stazione ferroviaria, ubicata nel quartiere romano di San Lorenzo, quello che ha resistito agli attacchi tedeschi durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale, le cui tracce sono tuttora impresse in numerosi palazzi – ed ha avuto quali protagonisti i lavori di artisti come la brillante Sacha Turchi, la quale ha realizzato una scultura che evoca la colonna vertebrale, la struttura del corpo umano. Costruzioni, segni precisi che racchiudono in sé visioni quali quelle di Giacomo Frasson e Giulia Roman, studenti neo-laureati della Facoltà di Fashion Design dell’ Università Iuav di Venezia, come anche Melampo, brand creato da LulùAnna Poletti, Brighenti -rinomata boutique romana di lingerie di lusso, che ha realizzato biancheria intima per attrici e showgirl – ed altri che hanno tracciato un percorso artistico, gettando felicemente luce sulle energie e idee protagoniste della contemporaneità in cui il nuovo rilegge il vecchio per trovare una strada da intraprendere, pur essendo la destinazione ancora ignota.

"Beauty will daze you" by Enzo Cosimi

“Beauty will daze you” by Enzo Cosimi

 

It will be held on 30th and 31st August 2015 at the Cagliari Theatre “Beauty will daze you”, a performance/installation by the choreographer Enzo Cosimi who reinterpreted “Venus of the rags” by Michelangelo Pistoletto and teamed with the bright fashion designer Fabio Quaranta who created the costumes of event, including also a sliver of womenswear Spring/Summer 2016 collection which will be presented during the Paris Fashion Week. It’s a dreamlike tale, dying with a rarefied and suspended inquietude and exploring the archetype of homeless, its royal solitude, its being an outsider who peoples an underground world and lives at the edge of contemporary society. A not to be missed happening to enjoy art dialoguing with fashion.

“LA BELLEZZA TI STUPIRÀ”, LA PERFORMANCE/INSTALLAZIONE DI ENZO COSIMI AL TEATRO CIVICO DI CASTELLO DI CAGLIARI

"Venus of the rags", Michelangelo Pistoletto 1967

“Venus of the rags”, Michelangelo Pistoletto 1967

Si terrà il 30 e 31 agosto 2015 presso il Teatro Civico di Castello di Cagliari “La bellezza ti stupirà”, una performance/installazione del coreografo Enzo Cosimi il quale ha reinterpretato la “Venere degli stracci” di Michelangelo Pistoletto ed ha collaborato con il brillante fashion designer Fabio Quaranta che ha creato i costumi dell’ evento, comprensivi anche di un frammento della sua collezione donna primavera/estate 2016 che sarà presentata in occasione della Fashion Week parigina. È un racconto fiabesco, che si tinge di un’ inquietudine sospesa e rarefatta ed esplora l’ archetipo dell’ homeless, la sua regale solitudine, il suo essere un outsider che popola un mondo sotterraneo e vive ai margini della società contemporanea. Un imperdibile happening per apprezzare l’ arte che dialoga con la moda.

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.

Fashion and olfactive design featured in “Beyond black, fashion as experience”, collateral event of the Altaroma latest edition I ideated and curated which coincided with “Black celebration”, the other official event I made in collaboration with Altaroma and was held in Rome, at the same street, via di Montoro, smashing area hosting factories of artisans. Three were the different locations that hosted a smashing showcase of creativity made in Italy: the factory Menexa, the bride atelier La Maison Blanche and the factory of lutist Michel Eggimann where was presented the creations by OFFICINE904, Myriam B. and Anna Porcu, combined to olfactive installations smelling of artistic perfumery scents created by Meo Fusciuni, romantic and genius aromatorius, apothecary, researcher of olfactive memory embodying liquid emotions in a bottle, that tells about his journeys, uniqueness of experiences and universality of feelings. The travelling universe of scents by Meo, his two fragrances composing the Trilogia di viaggio, “1#nota di viaggio (Rites de passage)” and “2#nota di viaggio (Shukran…)” dialogued with the minimalism and craftsmanship by OFFICINE 904, eclectic factory and brand of accessories and jewelry created by Paolo Porcu Rodriguez and Silvia Pavanello – promoting and successfully making concrete a free dialogue between art, fashion, design e architecture, giving rise to ideas on the move, signs, symbols, surfaces and shapes becoming projects and products, stories and experiences drawing the Italian lifestyle and taste – that were hosted by the factory Menexa. The approach of matter by Myriam B., inspired by the nature, flowers and corals that are reworked by non-specific paillettes, feathers and gems where it shines a bright craftsmanship, was combined to the third scent talking about the scent of love and composes the trilogy of journey by Meo Fusciuni, “3# nota di viaggio (Ciavuru d’amuri)”, suave dialogue enhanced by the light atmospheres of the bride La Maison Blanche. The poetry by Anna Porcu where fascinations from the past, made concrete by a jewel, the cameo, become contemporary and blend in the leather and silver, joined to music or rather to the creations by the lutist Michel Eggiman and scents by Meo Fusciuni or the two fragrances composing il Ciclo della poesia (The cycle of poetry). Lights and shadows, nostalgia and love, the features of two scents, “Notturno” and “Luce” that were part of a delicate olfactive installation. A myriad of signs, craftsmanship, art, uniqueness and experimentation that catch fashion as total experience and lifestyle. An enchanting afternoon interlude which was sweetened by the experience of taste by a renowned Sicilian wine house, Tasca d’ Almerita along with the creations by Bocca di Dama.

 

ALTAROMA: “BEYOND BLACK, FASHION AS EXPERIENCE”, UN’ ESPERIENZA POMERIDIANA DI MODA & DESIGN OLFATTIVO

Moda e design olfattivo sono stati i protagonisti di “Beyond black, fashion as experience”, evento collaterale dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma da me ideato e curato in concomitanza di “Black celebration”, l’ altro evento da me realizzato in collaborazione con Altaroma e si è tenuto a Roma, nella stessa strada, a via di Montoro, formidabile area che ospita i laboratori di artigiani. Tre erano le diverse locations che esponevano una formidabile rassegna di creatività made in Italy: la factory Menexa, l’ atelier di abiti da sposa La Maison Blanche e la factory del liutaio Michel Eggimann in cui sono state presentate le creazioni di OFFICINE904, Myriam B. and Anna Porcu, abbinate a installazioni olfattive di fragranze di profumeria artistica create da Meo Fusciuni, romantico e geniale aromatario, uno speziale, ricercatore della memoria olfattiva che racchiude emozioni liquide in bottiglia, le quali narrano i suoi viaggi, unicità di esperienze e universalità di sentimenti. L’ itinerante universo di odori di Meo, le sue due fragranze che compongono la Trilogia di viaggio, “1#nota di viaggio (Rites de passage)” e “2#nota di viaggio (Shukran…)”, ha dialogato con il minimalismo e l’ artigianalità di OFFICINE 904, eclettica factory e brand toscano di accessori e gioielli creato da Paolo Porcu Rodriguez e Silvia Pavanello – il quale promuove e concretizza felicemente un libero dialogo tra arte, moda, design e architettura, dando vita a idee in movimento, segni simboli, superfici e forme che diventano progetti e prodotti, storia ed esperienze che disegnano il lifestyle e gusto italiano – che era presso ospitato la factory Menexa. L’ approccio materico di Myriam B., che trae ispirazione dalla natura, da fiori e coralli che vengono rielaborati mediante aspecifiche paillettes, piume e pietre dure in cui splende una brillante artigianalità, è stato abbinato alla terza fragranza che parla dell’ odore dell’ amore e compone la trilogia di viaggio di Meo Fusciuni,  “3# nota di viaggio (Ciavuru d’amuri)”, soave dialogo valorizzato dalle leggiadre atmosfere dell’ atelier di abiti da sposa La Maison Blanche di Davide Raciti. La poesia di Anna Porcu in cui fascinazioni del passato, concretizzate da un gioiello, il cammeo, diventano contemporanee e si fondono con la pelle e l’ argento, si è unita alla musica o meglio alle creazioni del liutaio Michel Eggiman ed agli effluvi di Meo Fusciuni ovvero le due fragranze che compongono il Ciclo della poesia. Luci e ombre, nostalgia e amore, i protagonisti di due profumi, “Notturno” e “Luce” che hanno fatto parte di una delicata installazione olfattiva. Una miriade di segni, artigianalità, arte, unicità e sperimentazione che immortala la moda come esperienza totale e stile di vita. Un’ incantevole interludio pomeridiano che è stato addolcito dall’ esperienza del gusto di una rinomata casa vinicola siciliana, Tasca d’ Almerita unitamente alle creazioni di Bocca di Dama.

The fifth edition of Floracult, event celebrating the nature and its culture, created by Ilaria Venturini Fendi and curated by Antonella Fornai – which was held in the Rome countryside, at La Storta, in I Casali del Pino -, opened with a series of smashing initiatives as the talk moderated by the journalist and author Ida Tonini starring Meo Fusciuni, modern alchemist who talked about his experiences with herbs, scents and his brand of artistic perfumery.

Meo, nice and bright individual, who seemed me like the cousin of Fabio Quaranta (brilliant fashion designer and professor at the Iuav University of Venice). That became his second nick name adding to Meo Fusciuni, art name chosen by Giuseppe Imprezzabile, Sicilian man who is based in Salsomaggiore, of whose the family name Fusciuni arises from the Sicilian slang and stands as “to flow”. Meo told about his relationship with the scents, experience arisen for random. He studied chemistry, then worked with disabled people, became herbalist and later started studying anthropology and travelling. His scents have arisen during his journeys. Passion, love and nostalgia are some emotions the lack of love as it happened with “Notturno” and “Luce”, two fragrances that embodied the feelings of Meo, the nostalgia for his love, her life companion Federica Castellani, who were far away from him and her return, celebrate his love for her, featuring the warmth and sensuality of patchouli (one of my favorite fragrances along with vetiver and opoponax), spicy notes that are sweetened by tonka. Olfactive experiences and alchemic moments, connected to poetry and magic suggestions under the sign of Crowley’s experiences (another thing confirming the spiritual connection to Fabio Quaranta, his love for the bands that are Crowley inspired as Psychic TV, Coil and Current 93).

Flowers, plants, little, big animals, delights as the licorice by Amarelli, creations inspired by nature where the alchemies by Floracult, dressed up by such a loving and genuine atmosphere which had a kind of magic. The warm welcome of place, kindness and congeniality of people I saw made all that marvelous, relaxing and fun.

FLORACULT: TRE GIORNI ALL’ INSEGNA DI ARTE, PROFUMI, DELLA NATURA E DELLA SUA CULTURA (1)

La quinta edizione di Floracult, evento che celebra la natura e la sua cultura, creato da Ilaria Venturini Fendi e curato da Antonella Fornai – che si è tenuto nella campagna romana, a La Storta, nei I Casali del Pino -, si è aperta con una serie di formidabili iniziative quali un talk moderato dalla giornalista e scrittrice Ida Tonini con Meo Fusciuni, moderno alchimista che ha parlato delle sue esperienze con le erbe, i profumi e del suo brand di profumeria artistica.

Meo, simpatica e brillante individualità che mi sembrava il cugino di Fabio Quaranta( brillante fashion designer e docente presso l’ Università Iuav di Venezia). Questo è diventato il suo secondo nick name che si aggiunge a Meo Fusciuni, nome d’ arte scelto da Giuseppe Imprezzabile, siciliano che risiede Salsomaggiore, il cui cognome deriva dal dialetto siciliano e sta a significare “scorrere”. Meo ha raccontato del suo rapporto con i profumi, un’ esperienza nata per caso. Ha studiato chimica, ha poi lavorato con i disabili, è divenuto erborista e poi ha iniziato a studiare antropologia e viaggiare. Le sue fragranze sono nate durante i suoi viaggi. Passione, amore e nostalgia sono alcune delle emozioni da loro ritratte. Infatti “Notturno” e “Luce” racchiudono la nostalgia per il suo amore, la sua compagna di vita Federica Castellani che era lontana e il suo ritorno, celebrano l’ amore per lei ed hanno quali protagonisti la calda sensualità del patchouli(una delle mie fragranze preferite unitamente a vetiver e opoponax), note speziate addolcite dalla fava tonka. Esperienze olfattive e momenti alchemici, legati alla poesia ed a magiche suggestioni crowleyane (un’ alltra prova che conferma la parentela spirituale con Fabio Quaranta, il suo amore per le band che si ispirano a Crowley quali Psychic TVCoil e Current 93).

Una felice esperienza, unita ad altri eventi che parlavano di natura, arte e artigianalità. Il mondo delle farfalle è stato ritratto da “Patma”, la performance di Sacha Turchi che ha narrato la nascita delle farfalle e “La memoria degli oggetti” di Pablo Mesa Capella che ha creato contenitori di ricordi e poesia.

La legna ritrovata nelle acque di Pantelleria e il suo lirismo erano i protagonisti dell’ installazione di Giancarlo Scialanga che è stata enfatizzata dal sound design di Pietro Scialanga. Legno e artigianalità hanno brillato nei suggestivi componenti di arredo del simpatico Alessandro Visi.

Fiori, piante, piccoli, grandi animali, delizie come la liquirizia di Amarelli, creazioni che si ispirano alla natura erano le alchimie di Floracult, condite da una atmosfera estremamente amorevole e autentica che aveva qualcosa di magico. La calda accoglienza del luogo e la gentilezza e simpatia delle persone che ho incontrato ha reso tutto ciò meraviglioso rilassante e divertente.

The right side of the moon”, name of Fall/Winter 2014-2015 menswear collection by the brilliant fashion designer Fabio Quaranta, reminded me another side of the mood, the dark side and the cult concept album by Pink Floyd, “The right side of the moon”, which has presented in Milan. Minimalism, an existentialist charm, fluid lines, dark colors – blue and black -,the fine research of cloths and lines that is a leitmotiv of Fabio’s work, emphasized by a suggestive installation which made me think about the “Iuav style”, the fashion of Fashion Design Faculty of Iuav University of Venice to set up the exhibitions it made as well as “Linen Yarn”, exhibition curated by Fabio Quaranta for Iuav (Fabio teaches at Iuav University of Venice, a smashing public fashion school I appreciate).

The right side of the moon”, nome della collezione uomo autunno/inverno 2014-2015 del brillante fashion designer Fabio Quaranta, mi ha ricordato un’ altro lato della luna, il dark side e il concept album di culto dei Pink Floyd, “The right side of the moonche è stata presentata a Milano. Minimalismo, un fascino esistenzialista, linee fluide, colori scuri – blu e nero -, la raffinata ricerca di tessuti e linee, leitmotiv dell’ opera di Fabio sono le alchimie della collezione, enfatizzate da una suggestiva installazione che mi ha fatto pensare allo “ stile Iuav”, la modalità della Facoltà di Fashion Design dell’ Università Iuav di Venezia di allestile le mostre come anche a “Linen Yarn”, la mostra curata da Fabio Quaranta per la Iuav (Fabio insegna presso l’ Università Iuav di Venezia, una formidabile scuola pubblica di moda che apprezzo).

The economy of lines features in the first womenswear Fall/Winter 2013-2014 collection of Fabio Quaranta, presented with a suggestive tableau-vivant at the new suite placed at the roof of luxury Rome Hotel Flora Baglioni during the Altaroma latest edition. Simplicity, minimal constructions where it shines a refined research, precious textiles, natural colors along with light nuances of grey and blue, are the alchemies embodied in the creations by Fabio, coats and jackets, genuine passe-partout.

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.

It featured in the latest edition of Milan fashion tradeshow event White the fashion show of Fabio Quaranta which has presented the Spring/Summer 2014 collection he made where it shined and has successfully concreted the idea of democratization of male elegance, considering the fashion show and the creations. There is a return to the paradigm asserted yesterday by Vivienne Westwood concerning the rich who should seems like the poor and the poor who should seem like a rich, a revolutionary idea living again in the creativity of Fabio Quaranta. A thinking elegance of whose the models he used for his fashion show are bringers, creatives artists, more or less young, under the sign of an unusual charme and uniqueness as the artists Zaelia Bishop, Emiliano Maggi, the photographer Angelo Cricchi and many others, celebrating the asymmetries of beauty, subverting the mainstream idea of beauty and evidencing a well made item can be worn by everyone.

A harmony between the world of ideas, the project and its result: outfits under the sign of deconstruction, fluidity and comfort, evoking the uniforms worn by the Japan working class – workmen, painters, bricklayers -, country where it exists a great, solemn concept and semiotic of dignity and elegance; the coveralls, a leitmotiv of Fabio, presented also in female white colored version as well as a fluid deconstructed suit and a palette of color including air-blue, ocher, green, grey, red, black and white. A fashion show, a tale which has not easily understandable – or rather as I imagine has misunderstood, considering the contemporary “cultural background” which exists inside out the fashion scene -, I celebrate.

WHITE: LA DEMOCRATIZZAZIONE DELL’ ELEGANZA MASCHILE DI FABIO QUARANTA

È stata protagonista dell’ ultima edizione dell’ evento fieristico di moda di Milano White la sfilata di Fabio Quaranta che ha presentato la collezione primavera/estate 2014 da lui realizzata in cui ha brillato ed è stata felicemente concretizzata l’ idea di democratizzazione dell’ eleganza maschile, considerando la sfilata e le creazioni. C’è un ritorno al paradigma affermato ieri da Vivienne Westwood inerente il ricco che doveva sembrare povero e il povero che doveva sembrare ricco, una idea rivoluzionaria che rivive nella creatività di Fabio Quaranta. Una eleganza pensante di cui sono portatori i modelli di cui si è avvalso per la sfilata, creativi, artisti, più o meno giovani all’ insegna di un insolito fascino e dell’ unicità quali gli artisti Zaelia Bishop, Emiliano Maggi, il fotografo Angelo Cricchi e molti altri, la quale celebra le asimmetrie della bellezza, sovverte l’ idea di bellezza del mainstream e dimostra che un capo ben fatto può essere indossato da chiunque.

Una armonia tra il mondo delle idee, il progetto ed il suo risultato: outfits all’ insegna della decostruzione, fluidità e del comfort che evocano le divise indossate dalla classe operaia del Giappone – operai, imbianchini, muratori -, stato in cui esiste un grande, solenne concetto e una semiotica di dignità ed eleganza; le tute, un leitmotiv di Fabio, presentate anche in versione femminile di colore bianco come anche un fluido, minimale completo e una palette di colori che include blu avio, ocra, verde, grigio, rosso, nero e bianco. Una sfilata, un racconto che non è facilmente comprensibile – o meglio, come immagino, sia stato frainteso, considerando il “background culturale” contemporaneo esistente dentro e fuori l’ ambito della moda – che celebro.
