Homecore is the French menswear brand created in 1992 by Alexandre Guarneri, successfully joining a casual-chic, timeless elegance, sustainability and a healthy lifestyle. Fluid and comfortable lines, high-end materials, precious details enriching the garments are the alchemies embodied in the creations that talk about uniqueness and a easy, slow living, the feeling of being like at home, being in harmony with ourselves and the world which surrounds us. That is the idea, the core of the brand which developed an urban refinement, made of vibrant ideas on the move as a discipline to find our permanent center of gravity, the Gum-jo, an intuitive yoga practice (including many enthusiasts as the actor Vincent Cassel), created by Alexandre by using the Gumjo, a natural rubber support, arising from the study on skeleton in gravitation on the Earth. Gumjo is focused on the pureness of being here now (idea which evokes the Existentialist concept of “hic et nunc” and reminding me the work by Martin Heidegger and the rebel by Ernst Jünger) in order to let go yourself to the center, your own, the center of things or the center of others (considering the center as the physical center). It can be practiced anywhere, anytime with anyone as it has evidenced in an event which was recently held in the Paris flagship store of brand. This practice is a clear sign, impressed in the work of Alexandre as fashion designer, his study on body and posture which underlines the interior structure of the body and supports the posture, giving rise to a genuine lifestyle talking about harmony, sustainability as well catchy passé-partout that are available in the Homecore Paris flagship store, placed in the area of Marais and in renowned boutiques as London Dover Street Market.

HOMECORE L’ ELEGANZA CASUAL-CHIC COME STILE DI VITA

Homecore è il marchio francese di abbigliamento uomo creato nel 1992 da Alexandre Guarneri che unisce felicemente una eleganza casual-chic, senza tempo e un salubre stile di vita. Linee fluide e confortevoli, materiali di alta qualità, dettagli preziosi che arricchiscono i capi sono le alchimie racchiuse nelle creazioni, che parlano di unicità e un easy, slow living, della sensazione di sentirsi a casa ovunque, in armonia con noi stessi e il mondo che ci circonda. Questa, l’ idea, il cuore del brand che ha consolidato una raffinatezza urban, fatta di vibranti idee in movimento quali una disciplina per trovare il proprio centro di gravità permanente, il Gum-jo, una pratica di yoga intuitivo ( che annovera molteplici entusiasti quali l’ attore Vincent Cassel), creata da Alexandre che si avvale dell’ uso del Gumjo, un supporto di gomma naturale, la quale nasce dallo studio dello scheletro in gravitazione sulla terra. Gumjo è incentrata sull’ idea dell’ esser qui e ora ( che evoca il concetto esistenzialista dell’ “hich e nunc” e mi fa pensare all’ opera del filosofo Martin Heidegger e al ribelle di Ernst Jünger) al fine di lasciarci andare al centro, al nostro centro, al centro delle cose o al centro degli altri (considerando il centro in termini di centro fisico). Può essere praticata ovunque, in qualsiasi momento e con chiunque come dimostra un evento che si è recentemente tenuto nel flagship-store parigino del brand. Tale pratica è un segno tangibile, impresso anche nel lavoro di Alexandre nelle vesti di fashion designer, il suo studio del corpo e della postura che sottolinea la struttura interiore del corpo e supporta la postura, dando vita a un autentico stile di vita che parla di armonia, sostenibilità come anche di accattivanti passé-partout che sono disponibili presso il flagship store di Parigi di Homecore, ubicato nei dintorni del Marais e in rinomate boutiques come Dover Street Market di Londra.

It was recently held in Paris at the enchanting concept store Front de Mode, placed in the suggestive area of Marais, the presentation of “Underground seduction” the Fall/Winter 2016-2017 unisex collection by Naco Paris, which has enriched by “Kiss”, the performance made by the bright fashion designer as his alter ego Madame Paris. Fluid, sporty-chic lines, colors, bright shades of yellow along which black, white, green and blue, recycled cloths, rubber, catchy slogans as “have fun”, “kill the system”, “forever fake” are some of the patterns embodied in this smashing collection where it shines a punk attitude, made of irreverence, joy and activism. The same mood finds a new context in the art, a series of photographs, the self-portraits of Madame Paris that were exhibited in the concept store and the performance by Madame Paris( made by using the cruelty free lipstick by Nabla).

Intimacy and universality, the language of a gesture turning into matter, the kiss, which becomes a clear track of love and a way of being, the queerness, in its many shades, metaphor successfully made concrete on paper. Different are the tracks of lipstick on paper, some are more intense, reminding a passionate kiss, instead other ones are more delicate, different kisses for every occasion, though every occasion is good to kiss oneself and love oneself, love the ones you love, bring, give and spread love. That is the core of performance: to act, do, dream, love joyfully, without any limit. The universality of love remarks another issue, the queerness and gender fluidity – I support -, love nullifying the gender(, considering sexuality, sex and its different architectures is not about gender, it is just about individual’ s intimacy, something I respect and celebrate through silence and discretion). It’s a vibrant tale, being the successful evidence of a poetical and political way of making art and fashion, a genuine underground seduction for all the ones who are rebel hearts.

Si è recentemente tenuta a Parigi  nell’ incantevole concept store Front de Mode, ubicato nei suggestivi dintorni di Marais, la presentazione di “Underground seduction” la collezione unisex autunno/inverno 2016-2017 di Naco Paris, che è stata arricchita da “Kiss”, la performance realizzata dal brillante fashion designer nelle vesti del suo alter ego Madame Paris. Linee fluide, sporty-chic, colori, brillanti nuances di giallo unitamente a nero, bianco, verde e blu, tessuti di riciclo, vinile, accattivanti slogan quali “have fun”(“divertiti”), “kill the system”(“uccidi il sistema”), “forever fake”(“per sempre falso”) sono alcuni dei motivi impressi in questa formidabile collezione, in cui splende un’ attitudine punk, fatta di irriverenza, gioia e attivismo. Il medesimo mood trova un nuovo contesto nell’ arte, in una serie di fotografie, gli autoritratti di Madame Paris esposti nel concept store e la performance di Madame Paris( effettuata avvalendosi del rossetto cruelty free di Nabla).

Intimità e universalità, il linguaggio di un gesto che si trasforma in materia, il bacio, che diventa tangibile traccia di un sentimento, l’ amore e di un modo di essere, dell’ esser queer, nelle sue svariate sfumature, metafora felicemente concretizzata su carta Diverse sono le tracce di rossetto sulla carta, alcune sono più intense e ricordano un bacio appassionato altre invece sono più delicati, baci diversi per ogni occasione, anche se ogni occasione è buona per baciarsi, amarsi amare chi si ama, prendere, dare e spargere amore. Questo è il cuore della performance: agire, fare, sognare, amare con gioia e senza alcun limite. L’ universalità dell’ amore rimarca un’ altra problematica, l’ esser queer e la fluidità del gender – che sostengo -, l’ amore che vanifica il gender ( considerando la sessualità, il sesso e le sue svariate architetture non una questione di gender, bensì inerente l’ intimità del singolo individuo che in quanto tale rispetto e celebro attraverso il silenzio e la discrezione). Un vibrante racconto che è la felice dimostrazione di un modo politico e poetico di fare arte e moda, un’ autentica seduzione underground per tutti coloro che sono cuori ribelli.

Atelier Van Lieshout

Atelier Van Lieshout

It has recently opened in Paris at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery, placed in the picturesque area of Marais, the exhibition “Atelier Van Lieshout Forniture III”, which runs through 27th April 2013 and is an expanded show of recent and early collaborations made by the Atelier Van Lieshout – founded in 1995 by Joep van Lieshout, working in the realm of art, architecture, furniture and design – with the gallery, featuring the grotesque, sensual suggestions that pay homage to the arts and crafts movement and explore a theme, the constantly questioning, driven by a globalised society that has lost its bearing.
