IO DONNA SCHEMA LIBERO – IL BUON GUSTO

41-MODA-R-ok_Storia7

The Good Taste. There are rules to be respected, and mainly some basic behaviours to be considered in order to be defined as “good taste person”.  The Galateo of Monsignor Della Casa has been written almost five centuries ago, and there is no need to review the key points, because the rules of good taste have been handed down from one generation to another. Today there’s a kind of intellectual creativity – only for very few people- that makes the flaws and the “intentional oversights” an added value. But this is valid only for clothing. We can’t excape from kindness, elegance of speaking and good manners. Standing up to shake the hand of a woman even if she’s young, don’t kiss on the hand if outside, taking off the sunglasses while talking with anyone. Well, we can forgive a smiling and kind person if he/she is not properly dressed, but if the attire is elegant, much better. And of you are worried of making mistakes, don’t add details and details trying to look like a dandy from old times. Simple is better.

CASTING CALL

AnitalianTheory

Felpa, 10×10 An Italian Theory, f/w 2017.

Il brand “10×10 An Italian Theory” nasce dalla fantasia di Alessandro Enriquez come omaggio sentito e allegramente chiassoso all’italianità, sotto tutti i suoi aspetti. Dai cliché di pasta-pizza-mandolino, a rimandi più ironici su vizi e virtù degli italiani, tutto viene riletto e restituito in grafiche dai colori sgargianti. A proposito di ironia, la collezione f/w uomo e donna celebra, e allo stesso tempo prende un po’ in giro, la mania nostrana dei casting e della celebrità più o meno spicciola, che si traduce in una stampa caleidoscopica su felpe e giubbini. A cura di Angelica Pianarosa, Foto Michele Gastl. 
The brand “10×10 An Italian Theory”
has been created by the imagination of Alessandro Enriquez, as a heart-felt and merrily showy homage to italianity in all its aspects. From the clichés of pasta-pizza-mandolino, to more ironic references to vices and virtues of italians, everything is reinterpreted and returned in colorful graphics. Talking about irony, the men and women f/w collection celebrates, and at the same time mocks a little, our mania of castings and celebrity, that is translated into a kaleidoscopic print on sweatshirts and jackets. Edited by Angelica Pianarosa, Ph. Michele Gastl.

IO DONNA SCHEMA LIBERO – L’UOMO NERO

40-MODA-R-schema-libero_Storia7(1)Man in black. In the book Zeitgeist (published by Bandecchi & Vivaldi) that collects some pieces by Giuseppe Veneziano presented in 2010 during the exhibition with the same name, there’s a chapter dedicated to Villains. Veneziano, born in 1971 and recognised by critics and specialised magazines as one of the spokespeople of italian New Pop and of the group “Italian Newbrow”, like every artist worth of respect is fascinated by the dark side. “All the evil represents a potential vitality needy of transformation”, wrote the psychoanalyst Sheldon Kopp. And the sicilian artist depicts archetypes of comic-books. But pay attention, if you want to see how Venziano depicted the quintessentially Villain, unfortunately really existed, that is Adolf Hitler, look for his Madonna of the Third Reich, that horrified so much the bishop of Lucca and the archbishop of Pisa that it was removed from the exhibition in Pietrasanta. Sgarbi proposed it again, in Salemi, few time later.
