SETTE MAGAZINE EN VOGUE – DATEMI UNO STYLIST E VI CREO UN MONDO

The art of “styling” is about being good at matching clothes and accessories, is about achieving results also through the combination of dissimilar fabrics in a perfectly harmonious way. Is the ability to combine clothing, body shape and proportions. It’s understanding the meaning of style after climbing the ladder for years. By mixing and matching pieces the “stylist” is able to express a certain beauty which is directly proportional to his skills. It’s a real job that involves a high level of professionalism indispensable for published fashion media. Stylists can help photographers building their careers, they can contribute to the success of magazines, editorial campaigns and fashion shows (or they can ruin them as well). It’s an important role that shouldn’t be underestimated. Some of them acquired great writing skills through the years and they now write remarkable articles not just for slick magazines but also for widely-read newspapers. When flipping through fashion editorial pages one should consider that behind each single shot there are passion, thoughts, good taste and quite a lot of work.

TRASPARENZE ’90: MASCHILE/FEMMINILE

A metà degli anni ’90 vengono proposti tessuti e materiali fino a quel momento inediti nella moda uomo: l’ uomo comincia a smussare il machismo, tanto da indossare vestiti trasparenti. Harper’ s Bazaar Uomo è stato un magazine assai audace in tempi non sospetti, l’ editore insisteva sulla provocazione e io lo accontentavo volentieri: allora, trasgredire aveva ancora senso. Di seguito, gli still life di Michele Gastl e un indossato di Rennio Maifredi pubblicati sul numero di gennaio 1995.
