A glocal (word joining the terms “global” and “local”, standards of different ways to live, make and be) attitude features in the menswear Spring/Summer 2016 collection of bright fashion designer Stella Jean, which has recently presented during the Milan Fashion Week. It’s a celebration of opposing elements where urban meets the local. The volumes are metropolitan, some of them depict suggestions from the Sixties, colors and many patterns evoke equator landscapes, emphasized by the strip prints, a leitmotiv of collection, of cloths made by artisans from Burkina Fasu, giving rise to a fun and fresh portrait of male elegance.

Un’ attitudine glocal (lemma che unisce i termini “globale” e “locale”, standard di diversi modi di vivere, fare ed essere) è la protagonista della collezione uomo primavera/estate 2016 della brillante fashion designer Stella Jean, che è stata recentemente presentata in occasione della Milan Fashion Week. Una celebrazione di elementi opposti in cui in cui l’ urbano incontra il locale. I volumi sono metropolitani, alcuni dei quali dipingono suggestioni anni Sessanta, i colori e svariati patterns evocano paessaggi dell’ Equatore, enfatizzati da stampe a strisce, un leitmotiv della collezione, di stoffe realizzate da artigiani del Burkina Fasu, dando vita a un divertente e fresco ritratto dell’ eleganza maschile.

A woman with a strong attitude, who is not afraid to be a woman features in the Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collection by the bright fashion designer Stella Jean. The creative successfully follows the awesome work of styling, developed and enriched by new references, inspired by the Himalaya yak and Indian suggestions, subverting the borders between male and female, as it evidences the patterns concerning the Indian barbershop – area which is usually off-limit for a woman – that are turned into smashing prints and embodied in the wrought-iron bangles. Colors, colors and again colors. That is the main feature of creations she made along with volumes, emphasized by crinoline, of garments reinterpreting the silhouettes from Fifties. Soft mohair coats, long silk dresses, unusual combinations and overlaps, fun decorations and accessories shine and draw a nomadic femininity, made of consciousness and assertiveness, remarking on the edge a genders invasion, which contrasts the male and female in an anarchist way. It’ s the portrait of contemporary femininity and elegance as a lifestyle by a society designer, Stella, who explores the dynamism and contrasts of her time, made of vibrant signs and ideas. In fact that is impressed in her work paying homage to the tradition, culture and work of people from different countries, resulting from her involvement with the Ethical Fashion Initiative by ITC (International Trade Centre, a UN agency) from which it arises the use she made of hand woven cloths made by the women from Burkina Fasu and Mali villages and the hand-made jewelry by Haitian artisans.

LA  FEMMINILITÀ  NOMADE DI STELLA JEAN

Stella Jean Spring/Summer 2015, photo by N

Una donna di forte temperamento, che non ha paura di essere donna, è la protagonista della collezione autunno/inverno 2015-2016 della brillante fashion designer Stella Jean. La creativa prosegue felicemente la fantastica opera di styling, consolidata e arricchita di nuovi riferimenti che si ispirano allo yak himalayano ed a suggestioni indiane, sovvertendo i confini tra maschile e femminile, come testimoniano i motivi del barbiere indiano – zona solitamente off-limit per una donna – che sono trasformati in formidabili stampe e racchiusi in bracciali di ferro battuto. Colori, colori e ancora colori. Questi i protagonisti delle sue creazioni, insieme ai volumi, enfatizzati dalla crinolina, di alcuni capi che reinterpretano le silhouette degli anni Cinquanta. Morbidi cappotti di mohair, lunghi abiti di seta, insolite combinazioni e sovrapposizioni, divertenti decorazioni, accessori splendono e disegnano una femminilità nomade, fatta di consapevolezza e assertività, rimarcando all’ estremo un’ invasione di generi, che contrappone in modo anarchico il maschile e il femminile. È il ritratto della femminilità e dell’ eleganza contemporanea come lifestyle, dipinto da una society designer, Stella, che esplora il dinamismo e i contrasti del suo tempo, dando vita a vibranti segni e idee. Ciò è infatti impresso nel suo lavoro che rende omaggio alla tradizione, alla cultura e al lavoro di diverse popolazioni, risultato del suo coinvolgimento nella Ethical Fashion Initiative dell’ ITC (International Trade Centre, un’ agenzia ONU) da cui deriva l’ uso di stoffe tessute a mano dalle donne dei villaggi in Burkina Fasu, Mali ed i gioielli fatti a mano da artigiani haitiani.

A smart development of a concept, made of an unique combination of different signs and pattern where it shines a detailed work of styling, successfully made concrete by joining retro volumes of skirts, fun shorts and dresses, reinterpreting many decades of fashion history (from Fifties to Eighties). A joyful alchemy talking about talking about freshness and contemporary times, enriched by catchy accessories as bags and shoes along with marvelous swimsuits.

Stella Jean featuring at Penelope, photo by N

It’s a perfect binomial to be in Brescia and come back to Penelope, the marvelous cathedral of conceptual fashion, created by the one and only Roberta Valentini and to see the its new look, made by the architect Antonio Gardoni and creator of artistic perfumery brand Bogue, who is inspired by the idea of staircase and made the interiors more catchy and comfortable. Here I attended at a shooting made by the brilliant photographer Erminardo Aliaj (I used calling Ermengardo due to Manzonian suggestions) and I appreciated the choices made by Roberta. It has been a smashing day which ended under the sign of epicureanism in a delicious restaurant Brescia restaurant, the Osteria Bianchi, where I enjoyed a typical dish, the beef with oil and the companion of Roberta, her fantastic tales that embody relevant chapters of fashion history as well as the bright ideas by Dario Bonetta and Alessandro Boccingher, my contubernals, co-founders of AplusB gallery, who gave me details about Brescia, its history, verticality and independent spirit it saved in the passing of time, something I felt walking on the streets which makes it unique, a place where going and coming back.

 

UN GIORNO A BRESCIA(2): LA MIA GIORNATA PENELOPESCA ALL’ INSEGNA DI MODA, CONCETTI E EPICUREISMO

É un perfetto binomio essere a Brescia e ritornare da Penelope, la meravigliosa cattedrale di moda concettuale, creata dalla sola e unica Roberta Valentini e vedere il suo nuovo look, realizzato dall’ architetto Antonio Gardoni che è il creatore del brand di profumeria artistica Bogue, il quale ha tratto ispirazione dall’ idea della scala e ha reso gli interni più accattivanti e confortevoli. Ivi ho assistito al servizio fotografico realizzato dal brillante fotografo Erminardo Aliaj (che ero solita chiamare Ermengardo in ragione di suggestioni manzoniane) e apprezzare le scelte di Roberta. È stata una giornata formidabile che si è conclusa all’ insegna dell’ epicureismo in un delizioso ristorante bresciano, l’ Osteria Bianchi in cui ho assaporato una pietanza tipica, il manzo all’ olio e gioito della compagnia di Roberta, dei suoi fantastici racconti che racchiudono significativi capitoli della storia della moda come anche le brillanti idee di Dario Bonetta ed Alessandro Boccingher, i miei contubernali, co-fondatori della galleria d’ arte AplusB, i quali mi hanno fornito dettagli su Brescia, la sua storia, la verticalità e lo spirito indipendente mantenuto intatto con il passare del tempo, qualcosa che ho avvertito passeggiando per le strade e la rende unica, un luogo in cui andare e ritornare.

I recently visited in Brescia the smashing cathedral of conceptual fashion Penelope, created by the brilliant and vibrant Roberta Valentini. Vibrations meeting themselves as William Burroughs featuring in the shop-windows of boutique, being this year and this month the centenary of his birth, persona immediately making me think about the cut-up (literary technique he created along with the visual artist Brion Gysin, embodied in the marvelous book “The third mind”, which has found a new context in fashion, becoming the theme of “Urban cut-up”, the Fall/Winter 2014-2015 capsule collection by L. Rousseau, young, talented fashion designer). It was sales time, thus I couldn’t enjoy most of choices made by Roberta. Nevertheless it was clear and visible her unique taste and visions I appreciate and share: one for all is Comme des Garçons along with Yohji Yamamoto, Lanvin, Vionnet, Azzedine Alaia, including also contemporary creatives as well as  young contemporary creatives as Simone Rainer, Benedetta Bruzziches, Stella Jean and Fausto Puglisi. Fashion and new ideas, as sustainaibility, made concrete by the bags by Carmina Campus, brand created by the pioneer Ilaria Venturini Fendi, promoting the culture of re-use. An amazing interlude has been the visit to Penelope Sposa, bridal boutique which feels like getting married (also for the ones who – like me – are allergic to wedding, as – Domenico Modugno sang – “it does not bind a dream by a contract”). Here I also ran into a very beautiful, future spouse who was choosing her dress and was dressed by Penelope from the head to feet. Minimalism, conceptual elegance, sophistication and refinement, those are the alchemies of Penelope. A temple to visit and come back. I will come back soon to enjoy the companion of Roberta, her assertive individuality and wisdom I love and celebrate and hopefully also to see her hidden treasures, her rich fashion archives, a genuine fashion encyclopedia of conceptual fashion, source of culture and precious suggestions.

PENELOPE: QUANDO LA MODA É CULTURA E UNO STILE DI VITA

The first thing I saw at Penelope, the bag by Carmina Campus

The first thing I saw at Penelope, the bag by Carmina Campus

Ho recentemente fatto visita a Brescia alla formidabile cattedrale di moda concettuale Penelope, creata dalla brillante e vibrante Roberta Valentini. Vibrazioni che si incontrano come William Burroughs, protagonista delle vetrine della boutique, il cui centenario ricorre quest’ anno, personaggio che mi fa subito pensare al cut-up (tecnica letteraria da lui creata unitamente all’ artista Brion Gysin, racchiusa nel meraviglioso libro “The third mind”, che ha trovato un nuovo contesto nella moda, divenendo il tema di “Urban cut-up”, la collezione capsule autunno/inverno 2014-2015 di L. Rousseau, giovane e talentuosa fashion designer). Era tempo di saldi, sicché non ho potuto apprezzare la maggior parte delle scelte effettuate da Roberta. Ciònondimeno era chiaro e visibile il suo gusto unico e le visioni che anche io apprezzo e condivido: uno su tutti Comme des Garçons insieme a Yohji Yamamoto, Lanvin, Vionnet, Azzedine Alaia come anche giovani creativi contemporanei quali Simone Rainer, Benedetta Bruzziches, Stella Jean e Fausto Puglisi. Moda e nuove idee come la sostenibilità, concretizzata nelle borse di Carmina Campus, brand creato dalla pionieristica Ilaria Venturini Fendi che promuove la cultura del riuso. Uno splendido interludio è stato la visita a Penelope Sposa, boutique di abiti da sposa che fa venir voglia di sposarsi (anche a coloro che – come me – sono allergici al matrimonio, poiché – come cantava Domenico Modugno – “con un contratto non si lega un sogno”). Ivi mi sono imbattuta in una futura sposa, bellissima, che stava scegliendo il proprio abito da sposa vestita da Penelope dalla testa ai piedi. Minimalismo, eleganza concettuale, sofisticazione e raffinatezza, queste sono le alchimie di Penelope. Un tempio da visitare e in cui tornare. Ritornerò presto per godere della compagnia di Roberta, della sua assertiva individualità e saggezza che amo e celebro e sperabilmente anche per vedere i suoi tesori nascosti, il suo ricco archivio, un’ autentica enciclopedia di moda concettuale, risorsa di cultura e preziose visioni.

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.

VFNO: LA ETHICAL FASHION INITIATIVE DI ITC & ALTAROMA PROTAGONISTA DELLA BOUTIQUE BIFFI DI MILANO

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.

Un formidabile evento organizzato dall’ agenzia ONU ITC ed Altaroma, una sfilata che si è tenuta a Roma presso il Complesso del Santo Spirito in occasione di Altaroma ed ha avuto quali protagonisti quattro brand, Christie Brown, brand del Ghana disegnato da Aisha Obuobi, Kiki Clothing di Titi Ademola (natia di Londra da genitori africani) che ha realizzato una collezione che si ispira al Nord Africa, Portiener Roth, brand svizzero creato da Sabine Portenier ed Evelyne Roth che si sono avvalse di tessuti del Burkina Faso e la brillante e rinomata fashion designer italo-haitiana Stella Jean. Una celebrazione dell’ Africa come anche delle suggestioni etniche che hanno dato vita a divertenti collezioni all’ insegna del colore, l’ artigianalità che racchiudono un vibrante concept. Una lodevole iniziativa che sperabilmente prosegua, essendo un modo per celebrare la cultura dell’ Africa come anche emancipare gli individui dalla povertà attraverso il lavoro, l’ industria della moda, il suo continuo sviluppo locale in paesi come l’ Africa.

Emerging creativity and talent-scouting is a leitmotiv of Altaroma as successfully it has evidenced by the two formats it created, the talent scouting award WION (Who Is On Next), organized in collaboration with Vogue Italia and Room Service, event under the sign of creativity on demand and demi-couture showcasing and giving the chance to sale the creations of many brilliant fashion designers who have discovered by Altaroma and are today hosted by renowned fashion tradeshow events as the Florentine Pitti and Milan White tradeshow.

A suggestive display of fashion which will present the first womenswear collection by the brilliant fashion designer Fabio Quaranta as well as the creations under the sign of lightness and dynamism by the sophisticated and genius Angelo Bratis.

Last but not the least a theme (which is very closely connected to me), ethical fashion will be the core of a fashion project made by Altaroma in collaboration with the UN Agency ITC(International Trade Centre),featuring renowned emerging creatives as Stella Jean as well as Cangiari, Calabria womenswear brand of ethical fashion.

A catchy tourbillon of events that depict and give to Rome a central and active role in the Italian contemporary fashion scene.

Creatività emergente e talent-scouting è un leitmotiv di Altaroma, come è stato felicemente dimostrato dai due format che sono stati creati, il concorso di talent-scouting WION (Who Is On Next), organizzato in collaborazione con Vogue Italia e Room Service, evento all’ insegna della creatività on demand e della demi-couture che espone e offre la possibilità di vendere le creazioni di plurimi, brillanti fashion designers che sono stati scoperto di Altaroma e sono oggi ospitati da rinomati eventi fieristici quali la fiera fiorentina Pitti e il White di Milano.

Una suggestiva esposizione di moda che presenterà la prima collezione donna del brillante fashion designer Fabio Quaranta come anche le creazioni all’ insegna della leggerezza e dinamismo del sofisticato e geniale Angelo Bratis.

Ultimo, ma non meno importante, un tema (che è a me intimamente connesso), la moda ethical sarà al centro di un progetto di moda realizzato da Altaroma in collaborazione con l’ Agenzia dell’ ONU ITC(International Trade Centre) di cui saranno protagonisti rinomati creativi emergenti quali Stella Jean come anche Cangiari, brand di abbigliamento donna di moda ethical della Calabria.

Un accattivante tourbillon di eventi che ritraggono e danno a Roma un ruolo centrale e attivo nella scena della moda italiana contemporanea.
