Lavori in corso – Work in progress

Questa foto dovrebbe rappresentare l'inizio di un percorso nuovo, che in realtà è già iniziato. Solo che spesso si scelgono vie complicate, difficilmente praticabili, piene di ostacoli. Allora, affaticati, ci si ferma, si prende un respiro profondo e si ricomincia. Io ricomincio, innanzitutto, parlandovi nella mia lingua, l'italiano. Basta con questo ostentato inglese internazionale, apparentemente… Continue reading Lavori in corso – Work in progress

Prada Foundation. The feelings’ divergence

Everytime I approach art, a special feeling hits my soul, something extraordinarily clashing and thought provoking, hard to come by in everyday life. An aspect of art which makes me love it that much, is the way it can confuse and reassure at the same time, intrigue and estrange, anguish or relieve. Art (including cinema,… Continue reading Prada Foundation. The feelings’ divergence

Ivory-Vintage&Luxury: a dream for each woman

It's not just a boutique, a vintage shop where everything is somehow chaotically stuffed, where you just buy and quickly leave. Actually it's the glorification of taste, conceived and run with dedication by two graceful and refined ladies, Vendela and Silvia, apparently different, but brought together by the same passion for high quality vintage fashion… Continue reading Ivory-Vintage&Luxury: a dream for each woman

Alexandra Moura and the Portuguese artistry

We are used to consider the four fashion cities Milan, Paris, London, New York as the main sources of trends and talents. They are viewed like the moving engine of the world of designers, photographers, fashionistas and all those ones who embody fashion. Obviously people need a landmark to be guided and oriented to what… Continue reading Alexandra Moura and the Portuguese artistry

Michael Pretolani: the master of oddity

The first thing that caught my attention in this extraordinarily eccentric man is the way he can match different textures, patterns, colors, maintaining an own personal style without looking strange. In everything he wears there's class and exquisite style. A rare quality not everybody has, called "personal taste". This is what distinguishes fashion icons from… Continue reading Michael Pretolani: the master of oddity

Haute couture, Fall 2015: the fashion fable

The couture week is that moment of the year when the magic of fashion reaches its highest levels. Each collection is a leap into an unreachable, ethereal, heavenly world where beauty rules and makes everybody dream, where there's no pain, no troubles, no evil, just peace. Almost a utopia, an unreal temporary place built up… Continue reading Haute couture, Fall 2015: the fashion fable

The gentlewoman

Thinking about women in the old times is as frustrating as it is seeing what many women are nowadays: either completely squeezed in unbearable corsets and thousands of metres of fabrics or totally naked. I hate both of these cultural evolutions in the women's wardrobe. The first one because it is a social obligation, the… Continue reading The gentlewoman

Jillian Boustred on the relation between fashion and painting

"Fashion for me is an artistic expression and an opportunity for creativity. There are so many aspects of the fashion industry from the technical elements of garments, print and textiles to styling and fashion photography. It's a really creative and expressive place to be and I think fashion is something that should be enjoyed and… Continue reading Jillian Boustred on the relation between fashion and painting

Label2: the art of fashion

Discovering new ways of expression is always an exciting  and satisfying experience. Writing about people who draw these experiences from everyday life turning them into art, gives even better feelings. A sort of admiration and esteem. That's what  an incredible fashion couple generated in me and that's why I'm now sharing with you my point… Continue reading Label2: the art of fashion

Jona Sees: the fashion alchemist

I constantly affirm that fashion isn't only a business and a source of trends, or better to say,it shouldn't be. Clothes have always had an incredible importance in society, but most of all in mirroring the self and it's multiple facets. It is like painting, sculpting, singing, acting. Each form of art is an emotional,… Continue reading Jona Sees: the fashion alchemist
