Autumn in Barcelona: time for great art exhibitions, time for long walks along the Barceloneta, thanks to the warm temperatures. Dressed like an artist: paisley with pop touches. Ph. Claude Rizzolo, Styling Alessandro Calascibetta.
Zaino, Bally, s/s 2017.
Il tema del viaggio è uno dei leitmotiv delle collezioni maschili per la s/s 2017. Il brand svizzero Bally, senza dimenticare il proprio heritage, crea lo zaino Alpina: un’interpretazione di stile degli zaini robusti che hanno accompagnato gli scalatori delle Alpi per decenni. Una serie di elementi funzionali e “tradizionali” (spallacci regolabili, chiusura con patella anteriore allacciata con fibbie e cinturini, apertura con coulisse e il fermo), si accompagnano a dettagli spiccatamente moda, come l’accoppiamento di canvas e pelle, la zigrinatura degli spallacci, l’uso dei patch-decoro, ispirati al mondo dei globetrotter.

A kind of fashion made of basic but refined clothes, wide volumes, little jewels, black and white: the focus is on make-up and hair, studied to emphasize the sweet and feminine features of the models.

Travelling with fashion. “The only rule of travel is: don’t come back the way you went. Come back changed.” says Anne Carson. If it’s adventurous and includes exotic places and countries, the travel can change our habits. And eradicate the occidental materialism. Off course, we’re talking about fashion, and fashion – probably – doesn’t interest Anne Carson, one of the main canadian poets and essayists. But fashion has almost ever inputs coming from art, literature, different ethnic groups. Basically, the travel clothing doesn’t exist anymore, since when it’s an inspiration for the creation of new collections. And it’s a mix: of military, sporty, technical fabrics and even trekking accessories, as seen at Prada’s, emblematic and excellent example. My suggestion is, as always: don’t repeat the styling you see on the catwalks, that are a form of spectacularization of fashion. But tone the strongest pieces down with something more classic.
