An eccentric styling, vaguely inspired by Ray Petri, that mixes down jackets, skirts (yes, skirts), sporty socks and garments. Elected as the ideal style for the Amsterdam Dance Festival. Ph. Giovanni Gastel, styling Alessandro Calascibetta.
A shooting/dossier dedicated to the Native Americans and to the personalities that supported their redemption. A faithful and absolutely evocative fashion. Ph. Giovanni Gastel, styling Alessandro Calascibetta.
Blue tie. The tribute by Giovanni Gastel to Richard Avedon, for Style Magazine (2010). “Severe” light, off-white background. The models’ action counterposes the solemnity of the tribute of a great photographer to a popular predecessor. The models, like they’re dancing, seem not to care about the mess they create in the clothes: the movements dissolve the severity of a normally impeccable attire as the tuxedo is. Out of the fashion sets, in real life, we can imagine a similar ease choosing a different way of “wearing the evening”: for example, breaking black with blue.
