The reality of the Victorian era was a grim one, yet we still choose to romanticize it. Look no further than the Metropolitan Museum of Art's exhibition "Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire." The show (on view through Feb. 1) explores the strict duty of bereavement that fell to the 19th-century woman. The closer she was to the deceased, the more that was expected of her: A widow stood to face a two-year mourning period. Add to that, her grief symbolized that of the entire family's, as well as her "status, taste, and level of propriety."

Le Pliage was first introduced in 1993 to attract female customers to the then-male centric brand. Trimmed with distinctive "Russian" leather with a sturdy nylon canvas body,the bag — which has sold over 32 million pieces over the years – has become an iconic reminder of the company's commitment to style and durability for the every day woman.

To honor the bag's history, Longchamp partnered with artist Sarah Morris to create a limited edition collection that highlights the importance of color and chic, effortless sophistication. Sophie Delafontaine, the granddaughter of founder Jean Cassegrain and Longchamp's current managing director and artistic director, says vibrant colors — there are 12 hues available per season — and high-quality are at the heart of why the bag is the company's most popular product.

Simone Rocha envisioned the collection as a sort of urban uniform, but one that doesn't feel at all restrictive. "I really wanted the collection to seem youthful and fun," she says. "I was thinking of girls in uniforms in a gang and how everyone is part of that uniform but in their own way. I saw these girls outside my studio in East London mucking about, so the colors came from nature. I was attracted to how each style in a different color felt like a different personality."

Hubert de Givenchy @ Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza

10 | 17 | 2014
    backlink

Between 22 October 2014 and 18 January 2015 the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza will be presenting the first major retrospective on the work of the French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, a key creative figure of the 20th century and a living legend in the history of haute couture. The exhibition, which marks the Museum's first incursion into the world of fashion, is devised by M. de Givenchy himself and will thus offer an exceptional focus on his creations over the course of half a century, from the opening of Maison Givenchy in 1952 to his retirement in 1996. The designer has selected around one hundred of his finest creations, loaned from museums and private collections worldwide, many of them never previously displayed in public.

They will now establish a dialogue in the Museum's galleries with works from its collections. Since he founded his own fashion house in Paris in 1952, Hubert de Givenchy's collections have enjoyed continuous success. He is a declared admirer of the work of Cristóbal de Balenciaga, from whom he inherited his way of understanding fashion design, characterised by the purity of lines and volumes. Hubert de Givenchy was the first designer to present a luxury prêt-à-porter line in 1954 and his clothes have dressed some of the most iconic personalities of the 20th century, including Jacqueline Kennedy, Wallis Simpson, Caroline of Monaco and his great friend Audrey Hepburn.

The exhibition will devote a special section to their creative friendship and professional relationship, which began in 1953 and continued throughout Hepburn's life. The actress wore Givenchy's designs in some of her best known films, such as Sabrina and Breakfast at Tiffany's, stating that "Givenchy's clothes are the only ones I feel myself in. He is more than a designer, he is a creator of personality." Hepburn also lent her image for Maison Givenchy's first perfume, L'interdit, which was launched in 1957. Hepburn's image in the campaign was immortalised by Richard Avedon's photographs.

As a collector of 17th- and 18th-century paintings and works by early 20th-century artists, M. de Givenchy has frequently acknowledged the influence of painting on his work. This is evident, for example, in the fact that his creations combine the classic elegance of haute couture with the innovative spirit of avant-garde art.

This aspect, which has not always been easy to convey, will become evident through the dialogues established between his designs and the selection of works in the exhibition from the collections of the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, including examples by Zurbarán, Rothko, Sargent, Miró, Robert and Sonia Delaunay and Georgia O'Keeffe.

The new technological pochette by Vivienne Tam

10 | 03 | 2014
    backlink

Tam collaborated with Zeusé on the design of three pouches embedded with advanced wireless technology and an iPhone case (used as a wireless charging receiver), inspired by the Spring 2015 collection. The Zeusé 2015 Vivienne Tam Limited Edition pouches were introduced on the runway and the iPhone cases were gifted to lucky guests. One simply places one's phone in the pouch or on top of the pouch, which itself can be charged with an accompanying charging mat; it is temperature controlled so it does not overheat or de-magnetize credit cards and charges all phones quickly and about 2.2 times. "Zeusé allows me to stay connected in style, while on the run and traveling in this fast-paced fashion world - I love the freedom of wireless technology. The Zeusé 2015 Vivienne Tam Limited Edition is the must-have accessory for today's modern woman," remarked Tam.

#New Designer | Giancarlo Petriglia

10 | 02 | 2014
    backlink

The brand was founded in 2011 by GIANCARLO PETRIGLIA, originating from a project of the designer who also lends his name. The brand identity of the label already starts with its logo in which two parallel griffins meet the gaze of mythology, where it is the griffin to pull Apollo's chariot, being the guardian "of gold and the most precious things of the world."

It is from this concept of preciousness that the ethics of Giancarlo Petriglia's brand derive and of which the designer specifies his moral "I want to personally guarantee the quality of the product, dedicating my love and promise of success to every piece of my collection, the products and leathers".

The "Made in Italy" marks another point in favor of the brand which sees its products skillfully assembled and produced in the city of Palermo, in Sicily, a place of which the designer wanted to discover local craftsmanship and emotions. "My dream, which I hope to see come true soon, is to retain, under the aegis of the brand Giancarlo Petriglia, also collections for men and women", says furthermore Giancarlo who proposes, for next Autumn / Winter 2012 - 2013, the second collection of accessories.

New "Click" collection SS2015 by Giulia Marani

09 | 30 | 2014
    backlink

The .GIULIAMARANI s/s 2015 Click collection, shown at the Angelo Marani Showroom in Via Fieno, 6 in Milan, arises from the cooperation between the designer Giulia Marani and the artist Andrea Tonellotto. Click is a snap-shot of coloured geometrical compositions which result in abstract art, even if they are reality fragments. Both Giulia and Andrea share the same interest for attention to details, which, apparently meaningless, become, examined from a certain framing and with shrewd eyes, sparkling lines and colours that create a micro universe with an harmonious, terse and attractive atmosphere. Another passion joining Giulia Marani and Andrea Tonellotto is the research for the materials / instruments necessary to their creative activity. Andrea Tonellotto chose a Polaroid as his channel. In his creations nothing is left to chance; the photographer, through the element examination (light, temperature, exposure) and film toning, can capture amazing colour effects and give a three-dimensional outlook to his geometrical shots wrapped in a metaphysical aura. Giulia Marani chose knit as her favourite creative tool; and before creating her garments she carries out an accurate yarn research and carefully studies how to assemble them. For her Click collection, the designer delved into Tonellotto's photographic archive and was overwhelmed by his atmospheres, and she re-interpreted the Polaroid using fabric and creating linear garments with a clean and essential cut with patterns of synthetic geometry in lively and intense colour. See the black and white intarsia top with printed thermo-layered silk, the cropped intarsia kimono in dual coloured stretch viscose and the intarsia cardigan in linen and silk with transparent details. Giulia made another snap-shot of her poetics leading to the cohesion Fashion and Art: by wearing her garments, artworks are no longer admirable only on museum or gallery walls, but they tour the world, creating new daily artistic visions and new Click!

G-six Workshop

09 | 29 | 2014
    backlink

G-six Workshop is a project that reinterprets the shoe codes, using PVC as the only material. These commando boots made completely in transparent plastic, with special finishings and trendy ever-changing details prove that the alchemy and simplicity of an idea are rare and precious. G-six conceives and reinterprets a shape already known and appreciated by the public, taking a distance from the concept of a rain accessory, converting it into an ever-evolving fashion accessory: lace, glitter and fluo are the first proposals of the "Ginny" model, the commando boot chosen by G-six for this season, positioned with an affordable price in the high end market. Mara Poletti, entrepreneur and creative from Milan, is the mind and spirit behind this project. For the name of the brand she drew inspiration from her daughter, Ginevra: "G" as in the initial in her name and 6 as the number in her birth date.

"I tried to give my customers a fresh idea to communicate the different aspects of their personality, playing with these transparent commando boots" - says Mara – and Ginevra plays a fundamental role in this project: her privileged viewpoint as potential customer has helped me think and gain insight and ideas in defining the proposal." A perfectly good reason to create the Brand name from her name and a logo in a heart shape for this project, which starts from the search for the modern world to new explore expression languages using PVC.

The G-six collection targets women who like having fun with fashion, are self confident and sure about their appeal, playing with elusive shades both in their life and their wardrobe. A dash of glamour and inventiveness are the characteristics of the G-six Socks collection, from which customers can choose, mix and match the socks with the boots, according to their mood.

Mauro Gasperi SS2015

09 | 26 | 2014
    backlink

Mauro Gasperi Spring/Summer collection 2015 is able once again to overcome that apparent contrast between the geometrical shapes and the textile's fluidity. Effectively, it's not by chance that the collection is characterized by an extraordinary sinuosity and by various combinations between shapes and colors: the stylist's aim is that of creating dynamic and strong items of clothing and so to underline the materials' extreme refinement and the accurate choice of the textiles combination. Two-colored and two-textiles will be the must-have of the season, enriched by personalized printed textiles, by embroideries, tone sur tone or in contrast. A wide total look composed by fluid blazers, flared full skirts, dresses, knitwear and sweatshirts. But not only these: what reappear are the accessories, among them bags, clutches and coordinated belts.

Powder, mint-green and turquoise make the items of clothing sophisticated and bright: they are all iridescent colors which gather together the essential themes of the collection. The dragonfly is the emblem of grace and elegance, it is the symbol of creativity, of balance and of change. This figure is present in the Japanese culture, a land which is very close to the designer. Moreover, the dragonfly is associated to maturity, strength and dreams.

Two prints characterize the collection: one is more sophisticated and characterized by shading of colors, the other is more geometrical and reminds to the kaleidoscopic colors and to the mosaic shapes of the dragonfly's wings. The particularity of this collection is the embroidery: it is on the silk organza, on the eco-friendly leather. The concept of the Made in Italy is reinforced thank to the sequins or the stud effect or with small pearls in Murano's glass.

Denim dress by M Missoni SS2015

09 | 04 | 2014
    backlink

It's absolutely one of the most versatile items in a woman's wardrobe, ensuring that all-important glam factor yet – best of all – offering endless fashion possibilities. Forever iconic, irresistible. A timeless and essential must. From the little black dress actress Audrey Hepburn elevated to cult status in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" all the way to the denim dress M Missoni is launching for Spring 2015, that's the sheath! And true to form, the new version from the famous Italian brand reasserts the classic sleek and simple silhouette complete with smart knee length, square neckline and medium-wide shoulder straps.

A pure expression of eternal elegance. All the same, M Missoni has taken the concept to an amazing new level mostly by opting for an ultrasoft stonewashed denim yarn entirely knit in the garter stitch. The end result includes rich nuancing in two basic shades of blue, one a powdery pastel and the other a deeper & brighter hue. Equally distinctive is the construction of the denim dress, lightweight and liningless, with a hidden back zip closure: for all practical purposes, put-together mode thanks to the expressly asymmetric patchwork assembly of different size panels with fringe trim between one and another. Fringe adds a similar fresh fun flair to shoulders and hem. This little denim dress – to debut officially on the scene with the Spring 2015 collection during New York Fashion Week – is now available in exclusive at the brand's own online boutique at www.mmissoni.com. Open for business in Italy, France, Germany and the U.K.

Traditional lace comes in wild colors to update classic staples such as the cocktail dress, the pencil skirt, or pump shoes. Chantilly , macramé or tulle lace are the perfect texture to create decidedly chic total looks or for trendy detailing.

Not necessarily for ladylike ensembles, lace may add an urban touch suitable even for the workplace. Pick a blazer, a PVC clutch, a biker jacket, or a sporty cropped top: elegance is in the details.

AltaRoma: Maglifico - Flora&Fauna

07 | 13 | 2014
    backlink
Curated by Federico Poletti and Modateca Deanna

After its success in Milan, where the project first came on the scene and debuted its exhibition in the rooms of the Palazzo Morando museum, as well as in Paris (February 2014, in the Première Vision international fair), on 12th July 2014 Maglifico will travel to Rome on the occasion of AltaRomaAltaModa.

Continuing its journey through knitwear made in Italy to present the most original international Italian creations made exclusively in Italy, Maglifico seeks to become a benchmark in knitwear-industry communication through its travelling exhibitions, installations and online communication platform, maglifico.com, which will be re-launched in September in a new graphic and innovative function version.

New location: the Scuderie di Palazzo Ruspoli, in the heart of the Eternal City, hosts this new edition of the exhibition, which explores the FLORA & FAUNA theme that will showcase the passion that numerous designers have for animals and nature. The nature theme, with its rich variety of plants and flowers combined together with an Aesopian syndrome will result in a varied bestiary representation, from the famous panthers by Krizia (that had been the forerunner of the animal lucky-charm genre) to the animal house of Roberto Cavalli, Adrienne Vittadini, Fendi and Maison Martin Margiela, up to the passion for flowers of Antonio Marras, Jean Paul Gaultier, Fuzzi, Pour Toi, Kenzo, Laura Biagiotti, Enrico Coveri, Yves Saint Laurent, Blumarine, Julien Macdonald, Cheap and Chic by Moschino, Matthew Williamson, to mention just a few. The set-up of the exhibition curated by Architect Danilo Reale and the green set-up curated by Carlo Contesso, garden designer and writer, emphasize the Jungle Fever atmosphere to enhance the inspiration of the garments on display.

Behind Maglifico lies a meticulous study and selection of garments undertaken in association with Modateca Deanna, the International Fashion Documentation Centre, whose vast collection and expertise has supported the project from the beginning. This widely respected technical and iconography research centre has over 50,000 garments, 6,000 books, 80,000 magazines and countless examples of experimental stitches and yarns, prints, embroidery, volumes and finishes. Through ongoing research and education, Modateca Deanna promulgates the history and culture of Italian knitwear and clothing and the Made-in-Italy brand. Another new feature to this edition of Maglifico is a section devoted to some names less known of the roman knitwear: Albertina and Pier Luigi Tricò, that are a small tribute to the exhibition's host city.

Albertina Giubbolini, better known as Albertina, introduced in the Fifties the knitwear in the Haute Couture making it extraordinary, thanks to innovative and craft techniques. Albertina, called the "Coco Chanel of Tricot" has dressed many Hollywood stars such as Joan Crawford, Audrey Hepburn and Bo Derek. Today some of her pieces are in the exhibition "The Glamour of Italian Fashion" at the V&A in London. Pier Luigi Tricò, aka Pierluigi Scazzola, opened his first atelier in Rome in 1961, presenting his first spring-summer collection at the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome. Irene Brin encouraged him shortly after to showcase the same models in Paris at Jacques Esterel and Pierre Cardin. He earned instant success thanks to his unique ability to create haute couture knitwear clothing. In 1962 he was invited for the first time to participate at the fashion shows at the Sala Bianca of Pitti Palace. In 1964, he introduced the jacquard in his collections, drawing himself the pattern, obtaining innovative results for that time. Some important people have worn his creations: Jaqueline Kennedy, Merle Oberon, Laurenee Bacall, Cyd Cherisse, Allegra Agnelli, Sofia and Anna Maria of Greece, Ingrid of Denmark, Maria Pia and Maria Gabriella of Savoy, Claudia Cardinale, Raquel Welch, just to mention a few.

Together with the couture dresses by Pier Luigi Tricò there are Fragiacomo shoes and vintage clutches, a brand with an important heritage (born in 1946 in Milan), there is in Rome an important shop in Via Condotti 35, often visited by various stars and Roman "socialite". Today Fragiacomo, with its archive, starts a new course wanted by Pozzi Chiesa Bros, which bought out the company in 2008, today they choose Bianca Maria Gervasio, as creative director. For the first time Maglifico hosts a number of knitwear pieces from the collection of Enrico Quinto and Paolo Tinarelli, as well as a selection of vintage photos. Complete the section a sculpture called "Esplosione Idrica", in synthetic glass and epoxy resin realized by an artistic duo Balsamo&Barraja. The work wants to capture the climax of the movement of the water, a dress-sculpture irrepressible that lead to the Hotpoint Ariston area, where is another artistic installation composed by AQUALTIS Direct Injection washing machines that have been certified with the Woolmark Platinum Care, the highest given by The Woolmark Company for the efficacy of the wool cycle.

The washing of wool and cashmere is done in the most delicate way, regenerating fibers and cleaning them deeply but softly. Moreover, with Direct Injection washing machine it is possible wash colors and whites in the same cycle with the performance of the 40° at 20° and there is not any color transfer on whites. It is not a case if part of the exhibition is devoted to the fibre and yarn that are at the origin of the creations on display: Australian Merino wool. In association with The Woolmark Company, the trademark for Australian Merino wool, and with the support of the Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia spinning mill, producer of fine and ultrafine combed wools for high-end knitwear, the exhibition offers a logical sequence of images and educational tutorials in order to show visitors the production chain from the sheep to the finished product. According to Fabrizio Servente, Global Strategy Advisor of The Woolmark Company: "The event aims to showcase wool's endless potential and huge versatility. The millennia-spanning history of wool naturally interweaves with that of knitwear, marking some of the fundamental passages in the evolution of clothing and fashion. The Woolmark Company has supported Maglifico since its debut in its promotion of knitwear and of this fibre's innate creativity and versatility".

"Their absolute quality, exceptional naturalness and endless customisation potential," Alfredo Botto Poala, chairman of Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia, explains, "are the values that make our products hard to supplant. In order to achieve absolute excellence in developing and making fine knitwear yarns, technological innovation combined with a respect for our typically Italian, time- honoured experience are essential qualities". Federico Poletti, the exhibition's curator, concludes by saying that: "Bringing Maglifico to Rome in alliance with Altaroma is a major step in carrying forward our promotion of potential of made in Italy knitwear through publications offering ideas for research into and reflection on the knitwear landscape. Through Maglifico, and with the project's partner companies, we want to celebrate Italian workmanship and showcase the industry's companies, which are fundamental to the tradition of knitwear".

Manebí for Cipriani

For spring/ summer 2014 Manebí looks to Venice, the city of art, beauty and good food. It was precisely here that, in 1931, Giuseppe Cipriani turned a small warehouse in which ropes were kept into the legendary Harry's Bar.

Manebí and Cipriani have joined forces to create a capsule collection of jute espadrilles, which feature the Cipriani logo, the image of a barman preparing a Bellini, the celebrated cocktail invented by Giuseppe himself in 1948. Cipriani has found in Manebí the ideal partner to create this capsule collection, as Manebí is renowned for its espadrilles, handmade by skilled Spanish craftsmen with a centuries-old tradition in the manufacturing of jute alpargatas.

The shoes come in two color variations: beige suede, with the Cipriani logo embroidered in signature turquoise, or blue suede, with a white logo. The espadrilles will be available to buy at Cipriani's restaurant in Ibiza and at the famous Harry's Bar in Calle Vallaresso, Venice.

Girls love slip-ons

The girlie side of sneakers: the slip-ons.

A shoe mostly known as the skater "slipper", with no laces and a close fit. The fashion world has eagerly embraced the trend, in line with the sporty style so fashionable today.

They are an easy compromise between comfort and looks. They look good both with a pair of leather pants and a skirt, adjusting easily to any kind of style. Fashion designers have reworked the trend adding patterns, florals, polka dots, using woven leather or classic canvas. To each their own slip-on!

#PITTIUOMO86

06 | 20 | 2014
    backlink

I wake up early (6:15am) to catch the train. Destination: Florence (or better, Pitti Immagine Uomo). My first stop is at the train station (I'm still in Milan!): I pick a lovely bar (it's the first time I see it), the JuiceBar, that proposes a wide variety of yummy and healthy breakfast snacks. I am attracted right away to coconut milk, a refreshing drink, packed with vitamins: just out of the fridge, it's just what I need to start my day. The journey to reach the coolest destination of the moment is rather short. With the fair, the runway shows, events and cocktail parties, Pitti Immagine Uomo 86 (#PittiUomo86) is overflowing with journalists, bloggers, buyers and… posers. 

But we are here to hunt for new trends and as far as the streetstyle here is concerned, the new prototype of the Made in Italy male is easy to spot: men generally wear separates, usually pants in a soft hue teamed with a navy blue or checked blazer fitted at the waist. Combinations are also classic: light blue or white shirt, a bow-tie (better if small) and a nice pair of mirrored glasses adding a modern twist. Shoewear of choice: rigid loafers or patchwork derby shoes. It's like seeing a bunch of gentlemen from the 40s but in Technicolor, and a little cartoon-like: they just can't stop smiling, showing their perfect white teeth. They gather here and there, recognizing (and attracting) each other for their similar style. 

Find out our Brand @Pitti Immagine Uomo 86 : Kinloch, Alero, 0'70, Menghi

Women are no less so. Actually there is no particular prototype standing out, but it is true that the turban and the sporty sandals proposed by Givenchy and Marni are the real must-haves of the season: you can't just do without them! 

And now let's have a look at the brands, both Italian and international. The focus is on mid-season garments (although there is no such thing as a mid-season any longer): lightweight duvets you may also wear underneath a coat or pack in your suitcase (it takes up just a tiny space); booties and Chelsea boots for a formal style without being too stiff, in leather or suede, for a modern twist; sneakers matching with backpacks that skillfully mix vintage shapes and techno-fabrics; headscarves for women but also for men, products from silk mills in the Como area much loved by the Japanese that order tons of them (besides the pocket square and the classic headscarf, here is the foulard-shirt!). 

The keyword for this #PittiUomo86 is the quality of the products that come in various colors or in arty patterns, including ‘pop' motifs (see the gentlemen posers and the neo-pin-up silhouettes). 


If you want to feel nostalgic, some has chosen to make us recall the sweet and sour taste of our days at school. See the new SS 2015 collection by Au Jour Le Jour Garcon #backtoschool: the buyers and the press were sitting on real school desks (from the Michelangelo high school, in Florence), while the models walked around like consummate teachers sporting tartan coats, knee- length or shorter Bermuda shorts, jeans with patches, asymmetric shirts, tops and socks. Patterns, something that Mirko Fontana and Diego Marquez are masters of, are also full of school memories: glue, little animals (from the rhino to the lion, including the jellyfish) and our first spelling book. It looks like 2015 will have a very nostalgic feel to it, with irony, but also in style.

Summer 2014 swimwear

The colors of summer, of red-hot sunsets, and froufrou details to enjoy in total freedom your vacations on the beach, from morning to night. The new swimwear designs for this season range from the classic staples, like the bikini and the one-piece swimsuit, to more structured designs embellished with flounces, woven or gathered elements. See the bright banana yellow proposal by Dolce & Gabbana, or the vibrant number with red vein patterns by Cherie Flakes: the bra doubles as a comfy top for the evening.

Or pick the super-chic wine-hued one-piece swimsuit: Karla Colletto proposes a romantic number with appliquéd rosettes in matching tones. Brazilian inspiration for Miss Bikini: a two-piece swimwear with side laces whose abstract pattern recalls the flow of the waves and warm summer nights.

Emilio Pucci "dress” the Baptistery of Piazza San Giovanni in Florence

06 | 12 | 2014
    backlink

Firenze | Hometown of Fashion is a special programme of events celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Centre of Florence for Italian Fashion, during Pitti Immagine Uomo.
The events will be held 17th - 20th June in Florence where Pitti Immagine will present an exclusive art installation entitled ‘Monumental Pucci' in conjunction with the City of Florence and with the extraordinary contribution of the Ministry for Economic Development and the ITA – Italian Trade Agency.

This unique project, created by Pitti Immagine for Emilio Pucci will "dress" the Baptistery of Piazza San Giovanni with the iconic Battistero sketch from the Italian Fashion House, covering the entire building with its beautiful colours and graphics. ‘Monumental Pucci' is inspired by the Battistero scarf from the archives of Emilio Pucci. Designed by the Marquise Emilio Pucci in 1957, the print interprets an aerial view of Piazza San Giovanni, in the brilliant colours of Mediterranean landscapes: vibrant lemon yellow, orange, fuchsia and the emblematic Emilio pink.

The Apse side of the Baptistery will be clad in the original Battistero scarf, reproduced and framed in large scale in its entirety, while the remaining seven sides of the octagonal building will be covered in almost 2.000 m2 of canvas, printed in a life-sized rendering of the Emilio Pucci Battistero print, faithfully following the building's contours. Fans can follow the unveiling of the Baptistery's new look through the hashtag #MonumentalPucci on Emilio Pucci's social networks.
This very special scarf symbolizes the special ties of the Maison with Florence, the hometown of the Marquise.

Emilio Pucci will host a celebratory cocktail in honour of the art installation on Tuesday, June 17th at Palazzo Pucci. On this occasion the Maison will also invite visitors to discover the drawing and printing techniques of the Battistero scarf through a special experience entitled ‘Design the Dream', celebrating the savoir-faire of the House.
On Wednesday, June 18th and on Thursday, June 19th, ‘Design the Dream' will then continue at the Emilio Pucci Boutique in Florence, where customers will have the chance to experience the creation of the historical scarf, available for purchase in several colours at the store.

A great exhibition that opened on 1 February 2014 realized in collaboration with Fondazione Gianfranco Ferré, illustrates the creativity and stylistic genius of a key player of contemporary international fashion through his iconic garment: the white shirt.

The exhibition begins with a structure of hanging fabric screens on which giant reproductions of Ferré's original sketches are projected, like flawless flashes that outline his creative vision and are the key to access the universe underlying each single project. Large photographic installations (X-ray simulations) of selected outfits on display restore the formal and material structure of each shirt, highlighting their texture and very soul. The second hall is the true core of the exhibition. 27 white shirts silently testify 20 years of creative and design genius.

On display like real sculptures, the shirts are hit by the light, enabling the volumes to fully express themselves, creating an inspiring plastic effect. Displayed at the sides of the large exhibition space are technical drawings, sketches regarding the runway show order, shots by great photographers, images from ad campaigns and editorials, all from the Archives of the Fondazione Ferré. A system of large projections ends the exhibition, showcasing a fascinating montage of the most important runway shows, from 1978 to 2007. The shirts become alive. The models' movements give back the signature taste and refinement of Gianfranco Ferré's poetic universe.

Global relaunch of a classic vintage 1936 Bata sneaker

05 | 22 | 2014
    backlink

For hundreds of millions of Indian schoolchildren, the Bata Tennis is nothing new. Since 1936, when it was introduced for use in physical education classes, the pinstriped sneaker with the distinctive rubber toe guard has been the first choice of India's young people—or anyone wanting a casual shoe combining style, comfort and an urban vibe. As part of the activities surrounding its milestone anniversary, Bata is proud to announce the launch of an international edition of the Bata Tennis, in its original white canvas with green pinstripe, as well as new versions in indigo blue and black. Initially, the shoe will be available exclusively at high-end fashion outlets Colette in Paris; Dover Street Market in New York, London, and Tokyo; and Miami's The Webster. The new Bata Tennis arrives in stores around the world at the end of April.

"We've been using the same Indian last since the 1930s," says Charles Pignal, project manager and greatgrandson of company founder Tomas Bata. "It was designed to fit feet across many different regions, and that's what gives the shoe its unique elongated shape. There are a lot of shoes in Bata's history that are iconic, but this particular one is a real emblem of what we stand for." Pignal spent several weeks fine-tuning the vintage shoe at the brand's original factory near Calcutta, which Bata opened in 1934 to help fulfill its founder's ambition to "shoe mankind."

Seventy-eight years later, the Batanagar facility is still going strong and continues to enhance Bata's reputation for quality, comfort and value.

A passion for eyewear and the creativity of three young designers. This is how TYG, which stands for "Three young gentlemen", was conceived.

The keyword for the fall/winter 2014/2015 collection is ‘mix': a mix of colors but also of materials. A touch of irony tops off the line: the three creative gentlemen have chosen some quite ‘interesting' names for their spectacles: Lucy Ferres, based on "Lucifer", for the line featuring extra-large and super-glamorous frames; Eppy Sun, a "fun" spelling mistake; Co-Burn for the evergreen line and Nuvole for those looking for a more sophisticated appeal. Entirely made in Italy, TYG spectacles are produced by a family-run company that closely follows each production phase.

The lenses are manufactured by renowned German company Carl Zeiss Vision. The materials, the brand's standout feature, guarantee top-level quality in order to fulfill all the needs of the consumers, now increasingly demanding and accurate in the choice of objects they wear and cherish.

A stylist in love with her job and her partner, an amazing Parisian singer/songwriter she met in Cadaqués during a sunny, hippie-esque summer. Vittoria Bottasini, while she was expecting her Italian-French baby decided to create a range of trousers that suited her style and her growing baby bump.


VPants is a collection of one-size trousers that play with prints, colors and materials.


"I have always been a fan of bell-bottoms and I have to say I was the first to be amazed by all this success. I like to think that one can feel ‘dressed up' with just a pair of trousers and a white T-shirt or a large sweater. A simple look that is also chic and refined. I purchase the fabrics from wholesalers in order to keep the prices down and offer high-quality items. My only limit is that I do not have a warehouse at disposal to get new fabrics when I run out of them: this is why each pair of trousers is a one-off piece, like in a limited edition."

A journey to a distant land, exotic stories, different but fascinating habits. The story of a new lifestyle. Love, art, history, war, traditions: like an open book that you don't just browse but look at. This is the spirit of Italian for Italy, created in 2011 with the wish (and the need) to rethink Made in Italy, that is, to export the creativity, know-how and high quality that are signature features of Italian tradition.

The research is carried out "in progress", choosing recycled materials and privileging an handmade approach.

Productive platforms are set up in strategic areas and there, whenever needed, the artisans are trained; the production chain is supervised in all its phases: this is how Italian products are made all over the world, serving as the ambassadors of the great craftsmanship tradition they belong to.

Italian for Italy is proudly made around the world.

Je m'en fous presents a new beachwear capsule collection in collaboration with Chiara Ferragni, Candela Novembre and Nima Benati Sensuousness and charisma are the buzzwords for an explosive collaboration for summer 2014: Je m'en fous launches a special beachwear capsule collection designed by Giulia Zoppas in collaboration with Chiara Ferragni and Candela Novembre and shot by the it-photographer du jour, Nima Benati. The capsule collection, a 2,000-piece limited edition will be available exclusively online at Je m'en fous e-commerce site and at Luisaviaroma, starting 25 March.

Je m'en fous, the brand that since 2009 has been translating the creativity and enthusiasm of Giulia Zoppas into bubbly and feminine collections, meets two glamorous fashion it-girls and the sophisticated vision of a very young but already well-known photographer. The capsule collection revisits the bikini, an iconic Je m'en fous beachwear piece: a best-seller not only with the brand's devoted clients but also among celebrities, that are often spotted on beaches sporting the sexy and feminine two-piece swimsuits created by Giulia Zoppas.

The bikini, rigorously Made in Italy, comes in three color variations and two designs which may be mixed to one's liking: the pin-up style bra may be teamed with the Brazilian-style swim briefs or with the short skirt, a must-have piece of the Je m'en fous beachwear collections. Also the packaging is super-pretty and in line with the brand's attitude: a star print mini-bag that turns into a soft clutch for your summer nights.

Uppercut

UPPERCUT was launched in 2012 blending the production experience gained by Milan brand IUTER in its ten-year activity with the avant-garde vision of its creative director, Giorgio di Salvo. Fine-tuning its techniques with the first two collections, for Fall/Winter 2013 the project takes shape through a cutting-edge approach, the result of the label's research and experimentation, embracing a new, radical concept that aims at blending the brand's urban-street background with the excellence and grandeur of haute couture.


The UPPERCUT collection combines opposing styles and different techniques, resulting in an innovative mix based on three key elements: a refined design research carried out for each garment, top-quality materials and manufacture and 100% made in Italy production that equals those of haute couture houses. A low-key, classic and minimalist style alternates with a more eccentric and sporty approach with the help of valuable materials such as cashmere, Alpaca wool, jacquard cottons and lisle, but also techno-fabrics and detailing such as Schoeller® trilaminate and 3M reflective fabrics, ribbon stitches and heat-welded textiles.

Caterina Gatta

When Caterina Gatta designed her capsule collection she totally immersed in the world of artist Sofia Cacciapaglia.  A veritable journey through the artist's imagery, amid her massive figures of women, maternal and primitive, her fleshy flowers, the clouds and the floating fish, to rework themes and images printed on fluid silk. Caterina revisits such imagery with a lighthearted and poetic approach, suggesting an intimate path that traces back to the artist's work, exploring her symbols and signs.

The eyes of Sofia's figures are repeated obsessively, turning into a graphic pattern on little dresses and shorts, without losing their expressive strength and depth. Just like the dreamy and pondering faces that peek out from puffed skirts or embellish, like rose petals, the collars and sleeves of the 50s and 60s-style dresses, playing with chiaroscuro elements alongside lobster red and petrol green accents.

 
A strong, communicative collection that says a lot about the personality and soul of the wearer.

To live Africa and to let oneself be inspired. To combine the apparently distant cultures and to make them co-exist in a sole project. YOU KHANGA is all of this, AFRICAN LIFE & ITALIAN STYLE : where the fantasy of the khanga meets the know-how of Italian footwear industry craftsmen. In this way the the You khanga pumps and slippers are born, with the cloths regorously made in Kenya, which animate, in the insignia of singularity, the elegance of the shoes made in Italy. This because every khanga is unique and unrepeatable, including its small imperfections.

What is a khanga

In equatorial Africa it can be anything. First of all it is a rectangle made of stamped cotton with vivacious colors and decorated with sentences, proverbs, and good-wishing riddles written in the Swahili language. But for women it is also a lifestyle: because a khanga can be a dress or a headwear, it can serve to bring children on someone's back and even to decorate houses.

Jonny – paisley styled block print made at Liberty's Merton print works some time between the 1890s and the 1910s.

Eva – Japanese-inspired art fabric used for printed furnishing cotton in the 1880s, typical of the aesthetic movement at the time.

Alma's bird – Art fabric with birds, used for printed furnishing cotton from around 1890, a mix of Japanese design and early art nouveau.

Conceptual and experimental, with a ‘new wave' feel. This is the woman of Angelos Frentzos.

The designer studied at London's Central Saint Martins School and showcased his talent for the first time at Milan Fashion Week in 1999. For his Fall/Winter 2014-15 collection he made his woman look like a work of art, embellishing the models' hair with flowers and shrubs that create a sharp contrast with his informal, laid-back style. The result? Totally chic eco-punk mohicans.

A work of art is sublime when greatness and simplicity coexist in perfect harmony.

And harmony is the goal of this collection, too, as it makes us take pleasure in a glimpse of sky on a headscarf.

Endless horizons... The white and blue of Portuguese porcelain blend with the pureness of hues like wasabi green or candy pink, resulting in a varied and delicate color palette. The tile-like patterns join the fruit and floral prints, calling to mind the bouffant elegance of fresh 50s dresses.

Refined simplicity is a standout feature, thanks to monochromatic patterns on cotton and silk, embellished with delicate embroidery.

It was 1825: the members of the Lady Margaret Boat Club at Cambridge University all wore a single-breasted scarlet jacket, which gave rise to the "blazer" term, referring precisely to that "blazing" red hue. Almost two centuries on, that item of clothing, the blazer, it still totally glamorous despite its numerous transformations and revisitations.

Among them Blazé, the brand created by three Italian fashion editors: Corrada, Delfina and Sole. The Blazé designs are seasonless and do not follow trends. Blazé captures the true essence of the item and turns it into a timeless garment.

What's a fur chubby coat? It's a fur (real or faux) or shearling cropped outerwear item. Many will recall the pink or purple coats that Yves Saint Laurent introduced back in the 70s. Well, fur chubby coats will be on everybody's lips this year, as they took center stage at many London runway shows. Voluminous and short, like a bolero jacket, for Matthew Williamson, patchwork for Roksanda Ilincic or two-toned for Tom Ford.


A true obsession that will make us look like 70s disco queens, yeti-style. Truly glamorous!

Moschino | Fast Fashion

In order to be called "pop", a trend has to be across-the-board, that is, it has to combine music, art, photography and fashion. Pop culture is also a key feature of lifestyle, a concept that is becoming increasingly more a part of our habits and style choices.

Be it Andy Warhol or Madonna, a can of Coca Cola or of Campbell's soup, to name just a few, well-known pop icons, their aesthetic codes are reworked and remixed with traditional shapes.

Following the start of the last Spring/Summer 2014 season, when Jean Paul Gaultier paid homage to Michael Jackson's Thriller video, Moschino truly amazed us with the house's Fall/Winter 2014/2015 collection. Jeremy Scott turned the catwalk into a fast food parlor, playing around with the house's logo: the "M" of Moschino looked very similar to that of McDonald's.

Chocolate bars, packets of crisps, soft drinks maxi bottles and outfits inspired by Spongebob have stepped off the catwalk, making us enjoy a little lightheartedness. Flamboyant shades, logos and silhouettes (almost cartoon-like) took us to a well-known ‘pop' world (a pop wonderland?) we are all familiar with. Is this the secret of its success?

Moschino's Fast Fashion – Next Day After The Runway capsule collection comprises ten pieces and is now available at select stores worldwide.

The three interpretations, realized expressing total freedom and creativity, have been entrusted to young talented filmmakers Francesco Carrozzini, Alex Tacchi, Pierluigi Ferrandini and Filippo Silvestris.

The press kit and the three short movies are available to watch and download on a mini-website until 27 February.

The press office online revolution

02 | 19 | 2014
    backlink

The new version of a very interesting website was launched a few days ago.

The way it functions, the services and the opportunities it offers provide an excellent starting point to look at today's market and its dynamics with a fresher outlook.

We are talking of Trendfortrend.com, a portal that works like a huge library of fashion images. It may be compared to a press office that provides the images of numerous fashion houses: with a click, editors, bloggers and media specialists can download all they need to draft articles, product-related features, posts and other online or offline editorial content.

The services may be accessed by signing up - providing a password and ID- to gain the right to use all the images, cleverly divided by name and by brand and traceable through a research similar to those carried out on Google (and without having to make countless calls to as many interlocutors).

Besides, Trendfortrend also offers two further types of service. The first one is a sort of ‘mapping' of the images: each garment or accessory image comes with a native code for online traceability. This allows to create an instant press review as well as to carry out a final check on the destinations of one's online products.

The other service provided is a kind of editorial platform dedicated to editors and bloggers: the images featured on the site are already cut out and ready for the layout on different backgrounds, so to avoid having to turn to programs such as Photoshop.

Following the launch of the second, renewed version, the platform will give the brands featured in the portal the opportunity to invest in targeted campaigns in selected countries and will soon open to other markets (design and beauty).

Aside from the original and useful idea behind it, Trendfortrend gives us an indication of the approach we need to have today towards the revolution started by the internet.

The experience and professionalism of the past are still the same. What has changed is the perspective and most of all the ability to modify and adjust our modus operandi to today's totally innovated means of communication and interaction.
