Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga

Today I was on Facebook and I ran into a picture shared by a friend of mine coming from the Lady Gaga Facebook profile who was got ready to watch herself as the Countess. I saw her outfit and it reminded me the real Countess, my dear friend Alex Zapak, renowned, iconic persona from the NYC downtown art scene (who is the founder of art movement The Cunt Rock Revolution, band and artistic collective later turned into The Countess and Cun$t Rock Revolution and the Bank of Imaginations Theatre), that realm Lady Gaga quoted as reference which influenced her art and music. As it teaches the legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld: to use or rather combine at least eight different references it does not stands as copying. What does it happen instead when do you copy the name, the look, some music and the image of another underground artist? It does not happen anything. Why? Because of the mass ignorance, emphasized, a weird paradox, by the web, the unstoppable flux of information which is not supported by any consciousness, autonomous thinking, gives rise to ignorance, word I focus by considering is Latin root or rather “i-gnosco” which means “not-knowing”. Then the result arising from all that is to not knowing. And it has to be known the facts especially during this times where it lacks any sedimentation of knowledge (being basically visual, lasting for the time the following image deletes the previous, it’s a perpetual motion creating emptiness) and people exchange for “new”, “innovative”, “visionary”, a bad reinterpretation or worst copy of past or present.

These thoughts arise from a picture, but I am sure I am not the only who sees and knows it. Considering the Lady Gaga issue, her “references” to underground culture is very known. She “quoted” through her work many artists as Orlan (who unsuccessfully started a legal action against her), Colette(famous New York artist who made a public appearance behind the shop-windows of Barney’s over one year ago that hosted an installation ideated by Lady Gaga), Anne Pigalle and many others. Underground artists, though they are brilliant naturally fail behind a corporate marketing company which is Lady Gaga. They are the weakest because as “Nostalgia”, the song by Readers wives, tells about, “there is no money in the underground”. That is in the status quo of contemporary times. Knowledge is not marketing is of and for all the ones, thus it’s important to tell that and it’s relevant on a cultural profile to know and recognize all that. Mainstream culture will be always the mainstream culture, focused on increasing the mass homologation, corresponding to ideas, actions, habits and last but not least consumes – strictly connected to consumerism culture -, drawing often inspiration from the underground culture which will be always out of this circuit, the mass culture. Nevertheless, the minds of people, their eyes travel, therefore it must be given them the chance to develop an autonomous, free thinking.

CULTURA UNDERGROUND E CONSUMISMO, THE COUNTESS & L’ IGNORANZA DI MASSA

Alex Zapak aka The Countess & Lady Gaga

Alex Zapak aka The Countess & Lady Gaga

Oggi stavo su Facebook  e mi sono imbattuta in una foto, condivisa da un’ amico, proveniente dal profilo di Facebook di Lady Gaga che era pronta per guardarsi nelle vesti di The Countess. Ho visto il suo outfit e mi ha ricordato The Countess, quella vera, la mia cara amica Alex Zapak, rinomato, iconico personaggio della scena artistica della downtown newyorkese che è fondatrice del movimento artistico The Countess & Cunt Rock Revolution, band e collettivo artistico successivamente trasformato in The Countess and Cun$t Rock Revolution e Bank of Imaginations Theatre), quell’ ambito che Lady Gaga ha citato quale riferimento che ha influenzato la sua arte e musica. Come insegna il leggendario fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld: usare o meglio combinare tra loro fino ad otto riferimenti diversi non equivale a copiare. Che succede invece quando si copia il nome, il look, qualche musica e l’ immaginario di un’ altro artista underground? Nulla accade. Perché? A causa dell’ ignoranza di massa, enfatizzata, un bizzarro paradosso, dal web, l’ irrefrenabile flusso di informazione che non è sostenuto da alcuna consapevolezza, da un pensiero autonomo, dà vita all’ ignoranza, lemma su cui mi soffermo considerando la sua radice latina ovvero “i-gnosco” che equivale “a non conoscere”. Quindi il risultato di tutto ciò è non sapere. E i fatti si devono sapere, specialmente durante questi tempi in cui deficie ogni sedimentazione della conoscenza ( che è essenzialmente visiva, dura il tempo che l’ immagine successiva cancelli la precedente, un moto perpetuo che genera vuoto) e la gente scambia per “nuovo”, “innovativo”, “visionario”, una brutta interpretazione o peggio copia del passato e del presente.

Alex Zapak aka The Countess

Alex Zapak aka The Countess

Queste riflessioni derivano da un’ immagine, ma son certa di non essere l’ unica che vede e sa ciò. Prendendo in considerazione la questione Lady Gaga, i suoi “riferimenti” sono alla cultura underground sono molto noti. Costei ha “citato” attraverso la sua opera svariati artisti come Orlan (che ha avviato senza successo un’ azione legale contro di lei), Colette (famosa artista di New York che è apparsa pubblicamente davanti alle vetrine di  Barney’s, le quali ospitavano un’ installazione ideata da Lady Gaga), Anne Pigalle e molti altri. Gli artisti underground, benché siano brillanti naturalmente si fermano dinanzi a un’ azienda corporativa di marketing come Lady Gaga. Sono i più deboli perche come dice “Nostalgia”, la canzone dei Readers wives, “non c’è denaro nell’ underground”. Questo è lo stato di cose della contemporaneità. La conoscenza non è marketing è di e per tutti, pertanto è importante dire ciò ed è fondamentale da un punto di vista culturale sapere e riconoscere ciò. La cultura di mainstream sarà sempre cultura di mainstream, incentrata nell’ accrescimento dell’ omologazione di massa, che corrisponde a idee, azioni, abitudini e ultimo, ma non meno importante, consumi – strettamente legata alla cultura del consumismo -, la quale sovente trae ispirazione dalla cultura underground che resterà sempre fuori da questo circuito, dalla cultura di massa. Cionondimeno, le menti delle persone, i loro occhi, viaggiano, pertanto deve esser loro offerta la possibilità di consolidare un pensiero autonomo, libero.

Modernism, avant-garde, refinement and experimentation, symmetry and lightness, an elegance talking about the art of made in Italy and culture, this is the core of Spring/Summer 2015 collection by Fendi, paying homage to the architecture, the Rome Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana ( Rationalist building – hosting the brand Headquarters – which has drawn inspiration by the metaphysical painting by De Chirico) and its arches. Colors are light, natural and basic(black and white).  A wise game of cuts and transparencies enhances the silhouette along with marvelous prints and unusual reinterpretations in sophisticated way of cloths as denim. It features the orchid-motif  being embroidered in the invitation of fashion show and is impressed on shirts, trousers, dresses and accessories, bags ( as the legendary Baguette bag, enriched by many decorations and Peekaboo bag) and shoes, sandals, genuine masterpieces.

Modernismo, avanguardia, raffinatezza e sperimentazione, simmetria e leggerezza, un’ eleganza che parla dell’ arte del made in Italy e di cultura, questo, il cuore della collezione primavera/estate 2015 di Fendi che rende omaggio all’ architettura, al Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana di Roma (costruzione razionalista – e sede centrale del marchio – che ha tratto ispirazione dalla pittura metafisica di De Chirico) e alle sue arcate. I colori sono tenui, naturali e basici (bianco e nero). Un sapiente gioco di tagli e trasparenze esalta la silhouette unitamente a splendide stampe e insolite reinterpretazioni in chiave sofisticata di tessuti quali il denim. Protagonista, il motivo a orchidea che è ricamato nell’ invito alla sfilata ed è impresso su camicie, pantaloni, abiti e accessori, borse( quali la leggendaria Baguette, arricchita da plurime decorazioni e la Peekaboo) e le scarpe, i sandali, autentici capolavori.

That was not the only chance to know more about flowers and plants. In fact the expert Vanda Del Valli talked about the uses of herbs since long times ago, as the Euphorbia, used as remedy against sifilis, the betel berries and the leaves of coca as stimulants and the peyote from which it arises the mescaline, powerful hallucinogenic, evoking the psychedelic culture from Sixties and Seventies, Jim Morrison, his dangerous habits, “The doors of perceptions” and “Heaven and hell” by Aldous Huxley.

Culture as well as fashion suggestions, the creations by Dora Giannetti aka Elisabeth the first, made by joining antique, research cloths to contemporary shapes as well as other unique pieces she made that are under the sign of a timeless elegance. The nice Marina of Verdiana & Beniamina, brand bringing the name of her two daughters, presented a series of dresses and shirts embodying high-end materials, a fine lace and other fun patterns. The brand having its atelier in Milan, in Via Marco Polo 13 also makes works of customization, renewing and reinterpreting the clothes everyone has in its own wardrobe. A smashing series of accessories completed the fashion showcase. I saw again the jewelry designer Simona Rinciari of whose work combines natural elements as berries, the cinnamon sticks, the fava beans and dry leaves to metal and gems, giving rise to unusual creations that make concrete a bright craftsmanship. Jewelry and hats, head accessories hand-made by Patrizia Romiti.

Questa non è stata l’ unica occasione di conoscere meglio fiori e piante. L’ esperta Vanda Del Valli ha infatti parlato degli usi di erbe sin dai tempi più remoti, come l’ Euphorbia, usata come rimedio contro la sifilide, le bacche di betel e le foglie di coca come stimolanti e il peyote da cui deriva la mescaline, potente allucinogeno che evoca la cultura psichedelica degli anni Sessanta e Settanta, Jim Morrison, le sue rischiose abitudini, “Le porte della percezione” e “Paradiso e inferno” di Aldous Huxley.

Cultura come anche suggestioni moda, le creazioni di Dora Giannetti aka Elisabeth the first, da lei realizzate unendo tessuti antichi e di ricerca a forme contemporanee insieme ad altri suoi pezzi unici che sono all’ insegna di un’ eleganza senza tempo. La simpatica Marina di Verdiana & Beniamina, brand che prende il nome dalle sue due figlie, ha presentato una serie di abiti e camicie che racchiudono in sé, materiali di alta qualità, un raffinato pizzo e divertenti motivi. Il marchio, che ha il suo atelier a Milano in Via Marco Polo 13, realizza anche lavori di customizzazione, rinnovando e reinterpretando gli abiti del guardaroba. Ho rivisto la designer di gioielli Simona Rinciari il cui raffinato lavoro combina elementi naturali come le bacche, le stecche di cannella, le fave e le foglie secche al metallo e alle pietre preziose, dando vita a insolite creazioni che concretizzano una brillante artigianalità. Gioielli e cappelli, accessori per capelli, realizzati a mano da Patrizia Romiti.

The day started with the press conference which was held at the Capitolini Museums and announced a laudable initiative under the sign of patronage featuring the brand Fendi represented by Silvia Venturini Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld and Fendi’s CEO Pietro Beccari: the work of restoration concerning the Trevi Fountain, iconic fountain depicted by film along with the Quattro Fontane (of whose last renovation was made during the Fifties) that will also feature in a tale on photographs by Karl Lagerfeld.

The leitmotiv of Fendi, is to defend art as heritage, culture and value. The Fendi brand was born in Rome and has successfully maintained a strong connection with the city and celebrated the art and culture of Made in Italy. This follows the path which evokes the myth of a two faced Janus, god from ancient Rome who looks at past and future, become a symbol of the brand.

The legendary and iconic journalist, author Anna Piaggi – who was born on March 23rd 1931 -, died in Milan at her house a couple of minutes ago(. Thus unofficial voices referred). I am sad to say goodbye to the one of most emblematic voices of Italian fashion journalism, who has made of unforgettable Double Pages of Vogue Italia and the enchanting book “Anna-chronique”(Longanesi, very rare book) made along with her darling friend Karl Lagerfeld and has featured in “Fashion-ology”(of whose catalogue has made by Judith Clark), the exhibition which paid homage to her, held in 2006 in London at Victoria & Albert Museum. A legend who will live forever in the minds and hearts of all the ones who love her.

ADDIO A UNA LEGGENDA, ANNA PIAGGI

Anna-chronique by Anna Piaggi & Karl Lagerfeld

La leggendaria ed iconica giornalista e scrittrice Anna Piaggi – che era nata il 23 marzo 1931 -, é morta a Milano presso la sua dimora un paio di minuti fa( come hanno riferito voci non ufficiali). Mi duole dire addio ad una delle più emblematiche voci del giornalismo italiano di moda che ha realizzato le indimenticabili Doppie Pagine di Vogue Italia e l’ incantevole libro “Anna-chronique”( Longanesi, libro molto raro) realizzato insieme suo caro amico Karl Lagerfeld ed è stata protagonista di “Fashion-ology”( il cui catalogo é stato curato da Judith Clark), la mostra che le ha reso omaggio, tenutasi nel 2006 a Londra presso il Victoria & Albert Museum. Una leggenda che vivrà per sempre nelle menti e nei cuori di tutti coloro che la amano.
