A political message, impressed on a video: “free Assange”, a paradigm, the freedom, being the leitmotiv of thought and work by the legendary British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, joins to the gender fluidity, categorical imperative which has successfully developed in the Vivienne Westwood Man Spring/Summer 2017 collection, recently presented during the Milan Fashion Week. Fluid lines caressing the silhouette draw together and confuse the man with the woman. Jersey dresses and colored sweaters talk about comfort, freedom and consciousness. The outfits are tight as well as comfortable, as the coverall, large, long skirts embody light colored floral prints. The palette of colors include natural nuances along green, blue, light blue, pink and white. Stripes, transparencies, meshes and flowers are some of the patterns featuring in this fun collection.

Un messaggio politico, impresso in un video, “free Assange”, un paradigma, la libertà, leitmotiv del pensiero e dell’ opera della leggendaria fashion designer inglese Vivienne Westwood, si unisce alla fluidità del gender, imperativo categorico che è stato felicemente consolidato nella collezione Vivienne Westwood Man primavera/estate 2017, recentemente presentata in occasione della fashion week milanese. Linee fluide che carezzano la silhouette avvicinano e confondono l’ uomo con la donna. Abiti di jersey e maglie colorate parlano di  comfort, libertà e consapevolezza. Gli outfits sono aderenti e anche comodi come la tuta, larghe gonne lunghe che racchiudono colori tenui e stampe colorate. La palette di colori include tonalità naturali unitamente a verde, blu, celeste, rosa e bianco. Righe, trasparenze, reti e fiori sono alcuni dei motivi protagonisti di questa divertente collezione.

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.

QUANDO LA MODA É UNO STILE DI VITA: LA FORZA, PASSIONE & SALUBRE ETICA DI VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

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.

WikiLeaks  is a non-profit media organization – dedicated to bringing important news and information, leaking information by publishing material of ethical, political and historical significance and keeping the identity of sources anonymous – created by the Australian independent journalist Julian Assange, connected with the publishing of secret dossiers which created controversial reactions during the latest days. Though my approach to politics has made through another point of view, rather philosophical and light, promoting with my thought and modest actions an independent way of thinking – exploring fashion and its intersections with art, music, film, literature and culture -, I support Julian Assange and what he made, successfully evidencing the brain-washing done to the people by Institutions often – even if not always – connected with an ethics lacking transparency, freedom of expression and information. Julian Assange concretely represents the power of web – a significant source of information travelling quickly, thus it cannot be fully manipulated – as well as the value of freedom I use celebrating and defending.

WIKILEAKS E IL VALORE DELLA LIBERTÀ

Julian Assange

WikiLeaks è una organizzazione no-profit di informazione – dedita a portare al pubblico importanti notizie e informazioni, divulgando informazioni mediante la pubblicazione di materiale di rilevanza etica, politica e storica e mantenendo anonima l’identità delle fonti – create dal giornalista indipendente australiano Julian Assange, connessa alla pubblicazione di dossier segreti che hanno creato reazioni controverse durante i giorni scorsi. Benché il mio approccio alla politica, sia stato fatto mediante un altro punto di vista, piuttosto filosofico e leggero, promuovendo con il mio pensiero e modeste azioni un modo di pensare indipendente – esplorando la moda e le sue intersezioni con arte, musica, cinema, cultura e letteratura -, supporto Julian Assange e ciò che ha fatto, felicemente  felicemente dimostrando il lavaggio del cervello fatto alla gente dalle Istituzioni sovente – anche se non sempre – legate a un etica priva di trasparenza e libertà di espressione e informazione. Julian Assange rappresenta concretamente il potere del web – significativa risorsa di informazione che viaggia velocemente, perciò non può essere pienamente manipolata – come anche il valore della libertà che sono solita celebrare e difendere.
