Alessandro Calascibetta has been active in fashion since the late 80s. He started off his career at L'Uomo Vogue, after that with Mondo Uomo. Afterward, he became Fashion Director at Harper's Bazaar Uomo, and in 2000 founded Uomo which he directed until 2003. Following that, he started collaborating with Rizzoli. Since january 2015 he is the Editor in Chief of Style Magazine, and still remains as Man Fashion Director for Io Donna and Sette.
Reasonably evident references, in fashion as in films, are represented as cameos. As the female heavily-bistred eye in Magnifica Presenza by Ferzan Ozpetek and the one in Profondo Rosso, directed by Dario Argento almost forty years ago, which originally belonged to Clara Calamai. As when John Travolta has been recording a crime scene by accident in Blow Up by Brian De Palma, (1981) and David Hammings has captured the murder scene by chance, wile he was taking pictures in Blow Up by Michelangelo Antonioni (1966) . It happened as well in the 1971 movie “Gatto a nove code“also by Dario Argento. Regarding fashion, I have been leafing through the pages of the Stone Island Archive ‘982-‘012, and the piece that got me more excited it’s a bright colored, camouflage coat which bring us back to a wonderful Yohji Yamamoto collection from 2006. Brilliant references.
