PASTEL NOSTALGIA

VERSACE

T-Shirts, Versace, s/s 2018.

La collezione per l’estate 2018 vede come non mai Donatella Versace rendere omaggio al fratello Gianni, riprendendone i codici, i motivi iconici e ormai storici, riscrivendoli in chiave contemporanea per una nuova generazione di fashionisti. Così sfilano gessati con linee materiche o disordinate, su giacche dal fit ottanta; camicie stampate con motivi di maschere e putti tratti dall’archivio, gli stessi motivi che vengono riproposti anche come inserti su giacche e pantaloni in denim; il logo 80s della maison portato su T-shirts nei colori rosa e azzurro pastello. A cura di Angelica Pianarosa, Foto Michele Gastl. 

The ss18 collection sees Donatella Versace paying homage to her brother Gianni, recalling his codes, his iconic and now storic motifs, rewriting them in contemporary key for a new generation of fashionistas. So we see on the catwalk chalk-stripe suits and jackets with an 80s fit with material or jumbled stripes; printed shirts with putti and masks patterns from the archive, that are also patched onto denim trousers and jackets; the maison’s 80s’ logo printed on pastel pink and blue T-shirts. Edited by Angelica Pianarosa, Ph.

IO DONNA SCHEMA LIBERO – IL CAVALIERE ECLETTICO

The eclectic knight. “A Fornasetti item has the power of changing the vibration of any place. A room can be very beautiful, but also rooted in real life. Place a Fornasetti in there and the room acquires a completely different aspect”. This is how, in 2005, Philippe Starck described the dreamlike side of the masterpieces of Piero Fornasetti, (Milan, 1913/1988). His son Barnaba continues the research started by his father and contributes to the success of an artist that revolutionized the interior design concept; a “style changer”, Fornasetti, that “for a long time was ostracized. Far from the strict rules of modernist rationalism, bearer of a narrative and theatrical design that reached the highest peak of modernity, recovering at the same time the classical codes. Piero Fornasetti was put on the borders by a system that didn’t forgive his eclectism”: this is what Silvia Annicchiarico writes in the book Citazioni Pratiche, edited by Electa and curated by Barnaba Fornasetti. If Piero Fornasetti had been a director he would have been Fellini, if he had been a band, the Beatles, and if he had been a modern artist he would have been Damien Hirst. And if he had been a fashion designer?

IO DONNA SCHEMA LIBERO CAMPIONI DI STILE

14-MODA-R-schema-libero-sport_Storia8Champions in style. Muscles and brain. Brain and muscles. Talent, exorbitant fees. Sportsmen like Hollywood stars; only footballers in the past, all the athletes today. Fashion chases them, and sportswear has been an important reference point for decades, particularly for menswear: today this relationship is more delimited on mensfashion. There are lots of collections oriented towards a combination of sport and luxury. From easy-wear to “for few”-wear. They are very expensive items. And if the trend will stop? Don’t worry, it will last for long. The choice is up to you.

Zaino, Versace f/w 2016/17

Donatella Versace immagina per il prossimo autunno/inverno un uomo proiettato verso il futuro, un protagonista della Space Age già teorizzata negli anni 60, che non disdegna però, a differenza che nel passato, l’utilizzo di colori tenui e forme avvolgenti. Rimangono gli accenti metallici nella collezione degli accessori, come nel caso dello zaino in pelle martellata e copertura in pelle metallizzata. A cura di Angelica Pianarosa, Foto Michele Gastl.
