Homecore

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.

UNDERGROUND SEDUCTION: MODA ARTE & PERFORMANCE SOTTO IL SEGNO DI NACO PARIS

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.

Eclecticism, a vibrant and subversive way of thinking under the sign of art, embodied in “Art is resistance”, categorical imperative turned also in label of unisex clothing, successfully joining fashion and art, making concrete a way of making fashion under the sign of consciousness, healthy visions and positive criticism to make more and better. That is the sign of Naco Paris, brilliant fashion designer, performance artist and awesome model in drag – reminding me the hilarious and vibrant art and beauty of Divine, the iconic muse of John Waters who starred in many films he made as “Hairspray”, “Mondo trasho” and many others, masterpieces of camp culture – who recently featured in “Vous Marie“, the new project by the celebrated photographer Oliviero Toscani with the Paris art gallery La Hune and also in a commercial as testimonial of taxi company Uber.

Eclettismo, un vibrante e sovversivo modo di pensare all’ insegna dell’ arte, racchiuso in “Art is resistance”, imperativo categorico trasformato anche in una etichetta di abbigliamento unisex, che unisce felicemente moda e arte, concretizza un modo di fare moda all’ insegna di consapevolezza, salubri visioni e una critica costruttiva per fare di più e meglio. Questo è il segno di Naco Paris, brillante fashion designer, performance artist e fantastico modello in drag – che mi richiama alla mente l’ ilare e vibrante arte e bellezza di Divine, l’ iconica musa di John Waters, protagonista di varie sue pellicole quali “Hairspray”, “Mondo trasho” e molte altre, capolavori della cultura camp – che recentemente è stato il protagonista di “Vous Marie“, il nuovo progetto del celebre fotografo Oliviero Toscani con la galleria d’ arte di Parigi La Hune ed anche nelle vesti di testimonial della campagna pubblicitaria della compagnia di taxi Uber.

Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2016

Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2016

It has presented during Paris Fashion Week the menswear Spring/Summer 2016 collection by the legendary fashion designer Issey Miyake, giving rise to a dialogue between two cities, Tokyo and Mexico City, featuring a smashing syncretism under the sign of art and nature. The shining urban jungle which is part of these cities and is depicted by the young Tokyo photographer, Yoshinori Mizutani. The man becomes an urban animal who lives the city as a second colored nature, interacting with the rest of the world. References concerning nature and its hosts are impressed in the series of pictures “Tokyo parrots”, portraits of wild parrots seen on the streets of Tokyo turning into prints and decorating dresses and cotton poplin and jersey shirts. It’ s a sporty chic elegance, emphasized by a series of garments that draw inspiration from the Mexico city colors and the architecture by Luis Barragan. It’ s an alchemy made of monochrome shades, canvas and linen-cotton cloths, that are put together to become double-face, long waistcoats, Bermuda shorts, jackets and light, embroidered coats evoking the Mexican craftsmanship. It completes this suggestive display on male elegance the casual-chic creations, embodying the works, abstract pictures of Tokyo, from the series “Colors” by Mizutani along with something new, the eyewear, arising from the teaming with the Japanese producer Kaneko Optical, that will be launched from 25th to 28th September 2015 at Slimo Paris.

ARTE E NATURA, IL SINCRETISMO URBANO DI ISSEY MIYAKE

Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2016

Issey Miyake Men Spring/Summer 2016

È stata presentata in occasione della Paris Fashion Week la collezione uomo primavera/estate 2016 del leggendario fashion designer Issey Miyake, che dà vita a un dialogo tra due città, Tokyo e Città del Messico, di cui è protagonista un formidabile sincretismo all’ insegna di arte e natura. La lussureggiante giungla urbana che é parte di queste città è immortalata dal giovane fotografo giapponese Yoshinori Mizutani. L’ uomo diventa un animale urbano che vive la città come una seconda colorata natura, la quale interagisce con il resto del mondo. Riferimenti inerenti la natura ed i suoi ospiti sono impressi nella serie di fotografie “Tokyo parrots”, ritratti di pappagalli selvatici avvistati per le strade di Tokyo che si trasformano in stampe e decorano abiti e camicie di popeline di cotone e jersey. Un’ eleganza sporty chic enfatizzata da una serie di capi che si ispirano ai colori di Città del Messico e all’ architettura di Luis Barragan. Un’ alchimia di nuances monocromatiche, tessuti di canapa e lino-cotone, assemblati per diventare double-face, lunghi gilet, Bermuda, giacche e leggeri cappotti ricamati che evocano l’ artigianalità messicana. Completano questa suggestiva rassegna sull’ eleganza maschile le creazioni casual-chic che racchiudono le opere, immagini astratte di Tokyo tratte dalla serie “Colors” di Mizutani unitamente a qualcosa di nuovo, la collezione di occhiali, che nascono dalla collaborazione con il produttore giapponese Kaneko Optical, la quale sarà lanciata dal 25 al 28 Settembre 2015 presso Slimo Paris.

Yesterday in Paris it has been the massacre at the headquarters of satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, a heinous slaughter made by a group of Islamic terrorists, who killed 12 people “in the name of God” It’s always the same bad story, featuring the use and abuse of religion, combined to fanaticism, ignorance and violence. 12 innocent people died, who were just liable to work and release some comics making fun of terrorists. The moral, social, condemnation for this sad happening – which concerns the freedom every individual has to express oneself – stays, as well as my wish to Charlie Hebdo for continuing to do what it did. I join with the bright songwriter and visual artist France De Griessen who asserted (through by the art I am glad sharing) “the right to poetry, to laugh, to contest, to freely express oneself is such important as the air we breathe”. This unhappy happening also made me think about the meaning of religiosity as spiritual tension to God and consider again a precious consciousness embodied in the Vangel by Thomas (apocryphal Vangel reporting the words by Jesus): “The kingdom of God is inside you and all around you. It’s not in the buildings of stone and cement. Split a wood and I will be, lift a stone and you will find me there”.

“JE SUIS CHARLIE”: TERRORE E VIOLENZA CONTRO LA LIBERTÀ

Drawing by France de Griessen

Drawing by France de Griessen

 

Ieri a Parigi c’ è stata la strage alla sede del giornale satirico Charlie Hebdo, un efferato massacro effettuato da un gruppo di terroristi islamici che hanno ucciso 12 persone “nel nome di Dio”. È sempre la stessa brutta storia di cui è protagonista l’ uso e abuso della religione, abbinato a fanatismo, ignoranza e violenza. 12 innocenti sono morti, colpevoli soltanto di lavorare e pubblicare alcune vignette che beffeggiavano i terroristi. La condanna morale, sociale per questo triste accadimento – che riguarda la libertà che tutti gli individui hanno di esprimersi – resta, come anche il mio augurio a Charlie Hebdo affinché continui a fare ciò che ha fatto. Mi unisco alla brillante cantautrice e artista France De Griessen, la quale ha affermato (attraverso l’ arte che mi rallegra condividere) che “il diritto alla poesia, a sorridere, a contestare, a esprimersi liberamente è così essenziale come l’ aria che respiriamo”. Questa infelice circostanza mi ha fatto pensare al significato della religiosità quale tensione verso Dio e riconsiderare una preziosa consapevolezza racchiusa nel Vangelo di Tommaso( Vangelo apocrifo che riporta le parole di Gesù): “Il regno di Dio è dentro di te e tutto intorno a te. Non è negli edifici di pietra e cemento. Spezza un legno e io ci sarò, alza una pietra e lì mi troverai”.

Il leggendario fashion designer giapponese Issey Miyake è protagonista insieme at altri celebri artisti e creativi della mostra “Mémoires vives”, recentemente inaugurata a Parigi presso la Fondazione Cartier, che proseguirà fino al 21settembre 2014, ideata per celebrarne il trentesimo anniversario. Il fashion designer ha creato una suggestive doppia installazione luminosa, fatta di IN-EI, una serie di lampade da lui realizzate insieme al suo team Reality Lab e prodotte da Artemide, che sono in mostra presso il giardino della Fondazione ed il suo edificio, nella Sala Rez de Chaussée. Un evento imperdibile per apprezzare un fantastico creativo e l’ opera di una rinomata istituzione che opera nell’ ambito dell’ arte contemporanea.
