It will be opened on 4th April 2014 at 6 pm in Venice at the Spazio Punch “Re-visioni: esercizi a partire da una study collection”(standing as “Re-visions: exercises arising from a study collection”), exhibition organized by the Culture of Project Research Unit “The design in fashion” of Iuav University of Venice, in collaboration with the Venice Fondazione Musei Civici-Palazzo Moncenigo, curated by Gabriele Monti teaming with the students of third year of Fashion Design Course from the Iuav University of Venice. The name of exhibition – which will run through 29th April 2014 – evokes the gesture of seeing again, catching the unseen details. A smashing display of fashion from Eighties to contemporary times, including creatives as Jean Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani, Romeo Gigli, Comme des Garçons, Emilio Pucci, Norma Kamali, Maison Martin Margiela, Complice, Byblos, Irié, Claude Montana, Yohji Yamamoto, Moschino, Sybilla, Junya Watanabe, Vivienne Westwood, Prada, creations coming from the private collection of Maria Luisa Frisa, director of BA Fashion Design Course at Iuav. This exhibition has been the chance of giving rise to reproductions on canvas of items that are here showcased, made by the students, a modeling work which is part of exhibition path and emphasizes a different way of observing the dress, as study and design. It completes the exhibition the ephemera, ephemeral objects as invitations to attend at events, fashion shows and performances, press- releases, lookbooks and other materials as catalogues telling the work by fashion designers. A not to be missed event under the sign of fashion culture.

Expressionist dynamism, sensuality, eroticism along with the exploration of privacy and intimacy idea, their meaning in contemporary times connected to the redefinition of modesty, prudence and discretion shines on the canvas by Celia Hempton, who depicts landscapes, the bodies of friends and models (some of them sourced via internet and chat-rooms), focusing on their “private parts”. The young, brilliant and renowned London based artist – I was pleased to know many years ago and share with her joyful interludes – will open her first solo exhibition on 20th February 2014 in Rome at the Galleria Lorcan O’ Neill in Via Orti di Alibert and will run through 19th April 2014. A not to be missed happening to enjoy a vibrant artist.

Dinamismo espressionista, sensualità, erotismo unitamente all’ esplorazione dell’ idea di privacy e intimità, il significato da loro assunto nella contemporaneità, connesso alla ridefinizione di modestia, prudenza e discrezione, splende sulle tele di Celia Hempton, la quale dipinge paesaggi, i corpi di amici e modelli (alcuni dei quali ricercati via internet e chat-rooms), concentrandosi sulle loro “parti intime”. La giovane, brillante e rinomata artista residente a Londra – mi ha rallegrato incontrare diversi anni fa e condividere con lei gioiosi intermezzi – aprirà la sua prima collettiva il 20 febbraio 2014 a Roma alla Galleria Lorcan O’ Neill in Via Orti di Alibert e proseguirà fino al 19 aprile 2014. Un evento imperdibile per apprezzare una vibrante artista.

The right side of the moon”, name of Fall/Winter 2014-2015 menswear collection by the brilliant fashion designer Fabio Quaranta, reminded me another side of the mood, the dark side and the cult concept album by Pink Floyd, “The right side of the moon”, which has presented in Milan. Minimalism, an existentialist charm, fluid lines, dark colors – blue and black -,the fine research of cloths and lines that is a leitmotiv of Fabio’s work, emphasized by a suggestive installation which made me think about the “Iuav style”, the fashion of Fashion Design Faculty of Iuav University of Venice to set up the exhibitions it made as well as “Linen Yarn”, exhibition curated by Fabio Quaranta for Iuav (Fabio teaches at Iuav University of Venice, a smashing public fashion school I appreciate).

The right side of the moon”, nome della collezione uomo autunno/inverno 2014-2015 del brillante fashion designer Fabio Quaranta, mi ha ricordato un’ altro lato della luna, il dark side e il concept album di culto dei Pink Floyd, “The right side of the moonche è stata presentata a Milano. Minimalismo, un fascino esistenzialista, linee fluide, colori scuri – blu e nero -, la raffinata ricerca di tessuti e linee, leitmotiv dell’ opera di Fabio sono le alchimie della collezione, enfatizzate da una suggestiva installazione che mi ha fatto pensare allo “ stile Iuav”, la modalità della Facoltà di Fashion Design dell’ Università Iuav di Venezia di allestile le mostre come anche a “Linen Yarn”, la mostra curata da Fabio Quaranta per la Iuav (Fabio insegna presso l’ Università Iuav di Venezia, una formidabile scuola pubblica di moda che apprezzo).

It featured during the latest edition of fashion tradeshow event White, which was held in Milan at SuperstudioShades of a gentleman”, the exhibition project I ideated and curated which joined art and fashion: the art of brilliant artist Mustafa Sabbagh, the intense, rarefied, atmospheres he depicted on photo to tell about the elegance of gentleman as lifestyle, the one of a gentleman, the iconic and brilliant Cesare Cunaccia. The renowned editor at large of Vogue Italia and L’ Uomo Vogue, eclectic individual, unique, incisive, refined and above the lines personality also featured as designer of the object which ideally represents him: the glasses, exclusive product made of natural horn by the optic gallery Boudoir Venice by Alessandro De Lorenzo. A little masterpiece of craftsmanship which is a luxury product, produced by the Veneto company Farben 1962 from Laggio di Cadore, embodying high-end materials, having a catchy packaging, a little hood box containing a case made of a wool personally chosen by Cunaccia and a sophisticated design making concrete the Brummelian paradigm “Less is more”. The eyewear collection has showcased along with the creations and cloths by the Milan Alessandro Leonardi’s Atelier Santerasmo Cinque and shoes by Santoni, that depicted what is elusive, the male elegance, sartorialism – embodied in the unique creations byAtelier Santerasmo Cinque, Isaia and shoes by Louis Leeman along with the other refined objects and accessories coming from Cesare Cunaccia’s wardrobe – and its details under the sign of lyricism and timelessness. An intimistic tale, lights and shadows make concrete a vibrant dialogue between art and fashion and talk about a today story which is always a mistery, the male elegance.

É stato protagonista dell’ ultima edizione dell’ evento fieristico di moda White, che si è tenuto a Milano presso Superstudio, “Shades of a gentleman”, il progetto espositivo da me ideato e curato che ha unito arte e moda: l’ arte del brillante artista Mustafa Sabbagh, le intense, rarefatte atmosfere da lui catturate su foto che raccontano l’ eleganza del gentleman come stile di vita e quella di un gentleman, l’ iconico e brillante Cesare Cunaccia. Il rinomato editor at large of Vogue Italia e L’ Uomo Vogue, eclettica individualità, unica, incisiva, raffinata personalità sopra le righe, è apparso anche nelle vesti di designer dell’ oggetto che idealmente lo rappresenta: gli occhiali, prodotto esclusivo realizzato in corno naturale dalla galleria ottica di Venezia Boudoir di Alessandro De Lorenzo. Un piccolo capolavoro di artigianalità, prodotto dall’ azienda Veneta Farben 1962 di Laggio di Cadore che racchiude in sé materiali di alta qualità, ha un packaging accattivante, una piccola scatola di legno che contiene un astuccio di lana, scelta personalmente da Cunaccia e un sofisticato design che concretizza felicemente il paradigma Brummeliano “Less is more”. La collezione di occhiali è stata esposta unitamente alle creazioni ed ai tessuti dell’ Atelier Santerasmo Cinque di Milano di Alessandro Leonardi e le calzature di Santoni che hanno ritratto l’ inafferrabile, l’ eleganza maschile, la sartorialità – racchiusa nelle creazioni uniche di Atelier Santerasmo Cinque, Isaia e le calzature di Louis Leeman insieme ad altri raffinati oggetti e accessori provenienti dal guardaroba di Cesare Cunaccia – ed i suoi dettagli all’ insegna di lirismo e atemporalità. Un racconto intimistico, luci e ombre che concretizzano un vibrante dialogo tra arte e moda e parlano di una storia di oggi che è un mistero di sempre, l’ eleganza maschile.

I recently visited along with my friend and companion of Epicurean interludes – thinking the delights, energies and suggestions have to be shared – Andy Fluon (eclectic individual who is the founder of art collective and music band Fluon, visual artist, singer and DJ) the concept store and art gallery Orsorama, placed in Milan, in Via dell’ Orso 14, in the area of Brera. Here I saw Matteo Bonelli, its bright and visionary creator, who gave rise to a place, a vibrant cathedral showcasing and selling artworks, clothing, accessories – ties, jewelry and scarves – and furniture connected to a specific theme, based on religion and its symbolism – as it appears in “Cult fiction“, the new exhibition -, reinterpreted under the sign of new-pop. But Orsorama it’s much more than this, as it also successfully makes concrete a new way of making fashion, closely connected to a concept arising from artworks. In fact the patterns featuring in the artworks that are exhibited are impressed in the t-shirts, scarves and pillows, limited editions that join the best Italian craftsmanship, high-end materials, a catchy design and an excellent manufacture, giving rise to luxury products. The most bright evidence of all that is the collection of scarves, a luxury product which is extremely contemporary, by Svetlana Schmidt, a genuine genius of textile printing, as it arises from her work talking about surreal suggestions, where pop visions combine to the holy imagery. Orsorama is a place to visit, to come back and enjoy art and fashion dialoguing between themselves.

ARTE & MODA A MILANO: LA MIA VISITA AL CONCEPT STORE & GALLERIA D’ ARTE ORSORAMA

Ho recentemente visitato insieme al mio amico e compagno di intermezzi epicurei – pensando che piaceri, energie e suggestioni siano da condividere – Andy Fluon (eclettica individualità che é il fondatore del collettivo artistico e band Fluon, artista, cantante e DJ) il concept store e galleria d’ arte Orsorama, sita a Milano, in Via dell’ Orso 14, nei dintorni di Brera. Ivi ho incontrato Matteo Bonelli, il suo brillante e visionario creatore che ha dato vita a un luogo, una vibrante cattedrale che espone e vende opere d’ arte, abbigliamento, accessori – cravatte, gioielli e foulard – e componenti di arredo legati a un tema specifico che si basa sulla religione e la sua simbologia – come appare in “Cult fiction”, la nuova mostra, reinterpretata all’ insegna dell’ arte neo-pop. Ma Orsorama è molto più di questo, poiché concretizza felicemente anche un nuovo modo di fare moda, strettamente connesso all’ arte. Infatti i motivi protagonisti delle opere d’ arte esposte sono impressi in t-shirt, foulard e cuscini, edizioni limitate che uniscono la migliore artigianalità, materiali di alta qualità, un design accattivante e una manifattura di eccellenza, dando vita a prodotti di lusso. La più lampante dimostrazione di tutto ciò è la collezione di foulards, un prodotto di lusso estremamente contemporaneo, di Svetlana Schmidt, un autentico genio della stampa su tessuto, come risulta dalla sua opera che parla di suggestioni surreali in cui visioni pop si fondono con l’ immaginario sacro. Orsorama, un luogo da visitare, in cui tornare e apprezzare arte e moda che dialogano tra di loro.

21_21_DESIGN_SIGHT_DMJ_poster

It has recently opened in Tokyo at the 21—21 Design Sight the exhibition “Toward a Design Museum Japan”, organized by 21-21 Design Sight and the Issey Miyake Foundation – in association with the Agency for Cultural Affairs, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Minato City Board of Education, Japan Institute of Design Promotion, the Council of the Design Association of Japanwhich runs through 9th February 2014, including collateral events as talks and workshops focused on the theme of design in order to encourage the rise of a Japan Design Museum. The starting idea of exhibition, as the curators Akiko Moriyama, Taku Satoh, and Naoto Fukasawa assert, has arisen from an article included in a newspaper from 2003 which featured the interview with Issey Miyake, titled “It’s time to create a Design Museum”. Since 10 years” – the curator say – “we asked ourselves: What are the things we can do to encourage the making of this museum?” The answer is the exhibition which reconstructs the past exhibitions and the activities connected to that, joined under the sign of motto “Practice what you preach”. The idea of design, impressed in the exhibition path (resuming the exhibition that were held at the 21-21 Design sight since it’s rise in 2007 and including works by Issey Miyake - and Irving Penn -, Naoto Fukasawa, Taku Satoh, Shobei Tarnaya, Shunji Yamanaka, Tadanori Yokoo, Tom Vincent, Yamanaka Yu, Katsumi Asaba, Lucie Rie, Shiro Kuramata , Ikko Tanaka), explores the idea of design as making-creation of product (the main idea with which design has perceived), the need of finding-searching the connections between things and events and linking-connecting communities with the world, before following with the making process. This path is completed by the section creating, the quintessence of creative process and is enriched by the works of six designers from the past as Ikko Tanaka. A powerful display on design, laudable initiative, supported by Issey Miyake, who paid attention to the need of creating Japanese design archives, considering his own experience as fashion designer and asserting (in the interview he gave in 2003) “design is really fascinating. I was able to continue my work without any hesitation and for such a long time it’s because there is no pain in the act of designing, being something which embodies hope and is able to amaze and bring joy to people”. A not to be missed happening to know and enjoy the design and creativity Made in Japan.

É stata recentemente inaugurata a Tokyo at the 21-21 Design Sight la mostra “Toward a Design Museum Japan”, organizzato da 21-21 Design Sight e la Fondazione Issey Miyake Foundation – in associazione con la Agency for Cultural Affairs, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Minato City Board of Education, Japan Institute of Design Promotion, il Council of the Design Association of Japanche prosegue fino al 9 febbraio 2014, include eventi collaterali quali talk e workshop, incentrati sul tema del design al fine di incoraggiare la nascita di Museo del Design del Giappone. L’ idea su cui la mostra si basa, come affermano i curatori Akiko Moriyama, Taku Satoh e Naoto Fukasawa, nasce da un articolo incluso in un giornale del che conteneva l’ intervista a Issey Miyake il cui titolo era “È tempo di creare un Museo del Design”. “Da 10 anni a questa parte, dicono i curatori”, ci siamo chiesti: Quali sono le cose che possiamo fare per stimolare la creazione di tale museo?” La risposta è il percorso espositivo della mostra che ricostruisce le precedenti esposizioni e le attività a loro connesse” all’ insegna del motto “Pratica ciò che predichi”. L’ idea di design, impressa nel percorso espositivo della mostra( che riassume le mostre tenutesi presso il 21-21 Design sight a partire dalla sua nascita nel 2007 e include opera di Issey Miyake - ed Irving Penn -, Naoto Fukasawa, Taku Satoh, Shobei Tarnaya, Shunji Yamanaka, Tadanori Yokoo, Tom Vincent, Yamanaka Yu, Katsumi Asaba, Lucie Rie, Shiro Kuramata , Ikko Tanaka), esplora l’ idea di design come making-creazione di prodotto (l’ idea con cui il design è stato principalmente percepito), la necessità di finding-ricercare le connessioni tra le cose e gli eventi e linking-connecting collegare le comunità con il mondo prima di procedere al processo del fare. Questo percorso è completato dalla sezione creating, la quintessenza del processo creativo ed è arricchito dalle opere di sei designers del passato quali Ikko Tanaka. Un poderosa esposizione di design, lodevole iniziativa, sostenuta da Issey Miyake che ha prestato attenzione all’ esigenza di creare archivi di design giapponese, prendendo in considerazione la sua esperienza di fashion designer e affermando (nell’ intervista da lui rilasciata nel 2003) che “il design è veramente affascinante. La ragione per cui sono stato in grado di proseguire il mio lavoro senza esitazione e per così tanto tempo è molto semplice e lineare: è perché il dolore non ha posto nell’atto della progettazione, che racchiude in sé speranza ed è capace di sorprendere e dare gioia alle persone”. Un evento imperdibile per conoscere e apprezzare il design e la creatività Made in Japan.
