B. M., Beppe Modenese Ministry of Elegance

B. M., Beppe Modenese Ministry of Elegance

It was held in Rome during the latest edition of Altaroma, at Santa Cecilia Conservatory the book launch of “B. M., Beppe Modenese, Ministry of Elegance” (Skira Editions, Euros 49,00), autobiographical work ideated by Luca Stoppini, curated by Roberta Filippini, including photographs and texts by Cesare Cunaccia, Giulia Crivelli, Franca Sozzani, Suzy Menkes and John Fairchild telling about a legendary persona of Italian fashion, Beppe Modenese (Honorary President of National Chamber of Italian Fashion), icon of elegance. A smashing event that joined the music performed by the students of Conservatory and a talk featuring Cesare Cunaccia, Adriana Mulassano, Roberta Filippini, Massimo Di Forti and Beppe Modenese. An intimate conversation about Modenese, started by Cunaccia who asserted: “he is the way we should be and he is really an iconic representation of what is the Italian male elegance”. Roberta Filippini focused on “the real photographs by Luca Stoppini (made without using of Photoshop’s techniques), photographs reading the time” and being included in the book, of whose rise has been “a work which lasted for three years”. The leading character of book told “he made different works, he has been the first one to work in a concept store, ahead of one’s time, in 1951, has been the pr of couturier Jole Veneziani”. His tale has also dressed up with a chronicle of rendezvous as the one with Estée Lauder at the Crespi’s house. An eclectic individual who also has been one of TV’s fashion journalists, working during 1954/1955 in the TV program “Vetrine”. “It’s a generous autobiography” – as Roberta Filippini told – “concerns Florence and Pitti from 1951, talks about Laura Biagiotti (who was in the audience) and becomes a kind of Italian fashion and costume history”. The journalist and professor Adriana Mulassano told about the nice episode which regarded her and Modenese, who were invited at Quirinale and her different choices in terms of elegance they made, Beppe’s perfect and refined look and her unusual choices, more oriented to the trends of time, the Seventies that were really weird to attend at an official circumstance. I like reminding the words said by Massimo Di Forti, concerning the generosity of Beppe Modenese – he considered as “the man who whispered to fashion”- as it is closely connected to humanity, a value, the most precious one, I celebrate: “it needs to give for having”.

Si è tenuto a Roma in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma, presso il Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia la presentazione del libro di “B. M., Beppe Modenese, Ministry of Elegance” (Edizioni Skira, Euro 49,00), opera autobiografica ideata da Luca Stoppini, curata da Roberta Filippini che include fotografie e testi di Cesare Cunaccia, Giulia Crivelli, Franca Sozzani, Suzy Menkes e John Fairchild e racconta di un leggendario personaggio della moda italiana, Beppe Modenese (Presidente onorario della Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana), icona di eleganza. Un formidabile evento che ha unito la musica eseguita dagli studenti del Conservatorio e un talk di cui sono stati protagonisti Cesare Cunaccia, Adriana Mulassano, Roberta Filippini, Massimo Di Forti e Beppe Modenese. Una conversazione intima su Modenese, avviata da Cunaccia il quale ha affermato: “è come dovremmo essere, è realmente una rappresentazione iconica di quello che è l’ eleganza maschile”. Roberta Filippini si è rivolta alle “foto vere di Luca Stoppini (realizzate senza l’ uso delle tecniche di Photoshop) che leggono il tempo” le quali sono contenute nel libro la cui genesi è stata “un lavoro durato tre anni”. Il protagonista del libro ha raccontato che “ha fatto molti mestieri, è stato il primo a lavorare in un concept store ante litteram nel 1951, è stato il pr della couturier Jole Veneziani”. Il suo racconto è stato condito da una cronaca degli incontri tra cui quello con Estée Lauder a casa Crespi. Una eclettica individualità che è stata anche uno dei primi giornalisti televisivi, lavorando nel 1954/1955 nel programma televisivo “Vetrine”. “É un’ autobiografia generosa” – come Roberta Filippini ha sottolineato – “tocca Firenze e Pitti dal 1951, parla di Laura Biagiotti (presente tra il pubblico) e diventa un po’ la storia della moda e del costume italiano”. La giornalista e docente Adriana Mulassano ha narrato il simpatico episodio che riguardava lei e Modenese, invitati al Quirinale e le diverse scelte di eleganza da loro effettuate, il perfetto e raffinato look di Beppe e le sue insolite scelte più orientate alla moda del momento, gli anni settanta che erano oltremodo bizzarre per prender parte a quella circostanza ufficiale. Mi piace ricordare le parole di Massimo Di Forti sulla generosità di Beppe Modenese – da lui considerato come “l’ uomo che sussurrava alla moda” -, poiché essa è strettamente connessa al nucleo fondante dell’ umanità, un valore, il più importante, che celebro: “per avere bisogna dare”.

Modesign/Fashion at Iuav 2013 ended with a series of smashing initiatives under the sign of fashion and its culture. The last day started with “Per una fotografia italiana di moda”, talk which was held at the Treviso TRA (Treviso, Ricerca, Arte) cultural association moderated by Saul Marcadent with a panel of experts which included Maria Luisa Frisa, Alan Chies, Andrea Batilla, Stefan Pollak, Anja Aronoowsky-Cronenberg, Alessio Ascari and Sabrina Ciofi who talked about media, magazines and independence. The focus of the talk was independence and the freedom of experimentation and involving emerging creatives.

That is a true and reasonable issue, though the independence as value in action should concern the whole circuit which gives rise to a magazine, even if it’s hard to commercialize an independent magazine without using the mainstream circuit of distribution. It’s hard, but it’s not impossible (otherwise the independence and values such as integrity and vision are just a charming artifice, hiding a dynamic of the mainstream press which, considering its role and position, frequently inserted in big group of media companies, should act differently, in the name of big numbers. Independence would be the only means for justifying the existence of a different product, resulting from its contents and it would be a too weak basis).

Anja Aronowsky-Cronenberg, the editor-in-chief of magazine Vestoj, talked about her work experience, focusing on the Vestoj’s Manifesto which forbids any advertising (the most sensitive topic which is the condition of health and long life of a magazine) and represents the compromise which a magazine has to do, balancing and addressing the information given to the needs coming from the brands that paid for it), something I appreciated very much. (After all the times are ready to give rise to a new marketing strategy which is ethical inside out the realm of media). The talk ended with the visit at the exhibition “Flou, six photographers for six independent magazines”, curated by Saul Marcadent which included a beautiful portrait pic of Suzy Menkes.

Later in the early afternoon I visited another exhibition, “Linen Yarn. Il lino nel lavoro degli studenti di due scuole di moda: Central Saint Martin’s di Londra e Università Iuav di Venezia”, curated by Cristiano Seganfreddo. The event has shared with another event, the launch of the fashion tradeshow event Origin, Passion and Beliefs, created by Fiera di Vicenza and Not Just a Label and has been a successful chance to appreciate the laudable work made by Iuav students as Sophia Crema and Alma Ricci as well as to see Stefan Siegel of NJAL.

The day ended with two fashion shows, the Iuav Graduation show, curated by Kinkaleri which took place at the Treviso Edmondo De Amicis elementary school and the MA Graduation show, a fashion performance curated by Kinkaleri which was held at the Treviso Chamber of Commerce. The fashion shows displayed  the excellence of the emerging creativity from Iuav in the realm of menswear, presenting outfits that were ready to be commercialized and have nothing less than the products by emerging brands I saw recently during the latest fashion tradeshow events. That is a relevant result got by a public institution which trains young creatives and I celebrate as to study for becoming a fashion designer is a chance everyone should have beyond its own balance restrictions.

 

MODESIGN/FASHION AT IUAV 2013(3)

The Iuav graduation show

The Iuav graduation show

Modesign/Fashion at Iuav 2013 si è concluso con una serie di formidabili iniziative all’ insegna della moda e della sua cultura. L’ ultimo giorno è cominciato con “Per una fotografia italiana di moda”, talk che si è tenuto presso l’ associazione culturale TRA (Treviso, Ricerca, Arte) di Treviso moderato da Saul Marcadent con un gruppo di esperti che ha incluso Maria Luisa Frisa, Alan Chies, Andrea Batilla, Stefan Pollak, Anja Aronoowsky-Cronenberg, Alessio Ascari e Sabrina Ciofi che hanno parlato dei mass-media, magazines e independenza. Il fulcro del talk era l’ indipendenza e la libertà di sperimentazione e coinvolgimento di creativi emergenti.

Ciò è vero e ragionevole, benché l’ indipendenza quale valore in azione dovrebbe riguardare l’ intero circuito che dà vita a un magazine, pur essendo difficile commercializzare un magazine indipendente senza avvalersi del circuito di distribuzione di mainstream. É difficile, ma non è impossibile (altrimenti l’ indipendenza e valori quali integrità e visione sono soltanto un affascinante artificio che nasconde una dinamica della editoria di mainstream che, considerando il suo ruolo e la sua posizione, frequentemente inserita in grandi gruppi di società, dovrebbe agire diversamente, nel nome di grandi numeri. L’ indipendenza sarebbe l’ unico mezzo per giustificare l’ esistenza di un prodotto differente che deriva  la sua indipendenza unicamente dai suoi contenuti e ciò sarebbe un fondamento troppo debole).

Anja Aronowsky-Cronenberg, il direttore editoriale del magazine Vestoj, ha parlato della sua esperienza lavorativa, soffermandosi sul Manifesto di Vestoj che vieta ogni pubblicità (l’ argomento più sensibile che è la condizione di salute e lunga vita di un magazine) e rappresenta il compromesso che un magazine deve fare, bilanciando e indirizzando l’ informazione fornita alle esigenze derivanti dai brand che hanno pagato la pubblicità), qualcosa che ho apprezzato molto. ( Dopo tutto i tempi sono maturi per dar vita a una nuova strategia di marketing che sia etica dentro e fuori dall’ ambito dei mass media). Il talk si è concluso con la visita alla mostra “Flou, sei fotografi per sei magazines indipendenti”, curata da Saul Marcadent che includeva un bel ritratto di Suzy Menkes.

Successivamente, nel primo pomeriggio ho visitato un’ altra mostra, “Linen Yarn.

L’ evento è stato condiviso da un altro evento, il lancio dell’ evento fieristico di moda Origin, Passion and Beliefs, creato da Fiera di Vicenza e Not Just a Label ed è stato una felice occasione per apprezzare il lodevole lavoro realizzato dagli studenti della Iuav quali Sophia Crema ed Alma Ricci come anche per incontrare Stefan Siegel di NJAL.

La giornata si è conclusa con due sfilate, la Iuav Graduation show, curata da Kinkaleri che ha avuto luogo presso la Scuola Elementare di Treviso Edmondo De Amicis e il MA Graduation show, una fashion performance curata da Kinkaleri che si è tenuta presso la Camera di Commercio di Treviso. Le sfilare hanno esposto l’ eccellenza della creatività emergente della Iuav nell’ ambito dell’ abbigliamento uomo, presentando outfits che erano pronti per essere commercializzati e non hanno nulla in meno dei prodotti di brand emergenti che ho recentemente visto in occasione degli ultimi eventi fieristici di moda. Ciò è un risultato significativo ottenuto da una istituzione pubblica che forma giovani creativi e celebro poiché studiare per diventare un fashion designer è una possibilità che tutti dovrebbero avere a prescindere dal proprio vincolo di bilancio.

The empowered femininity has shined and celebrated by the genius Jean Paul Gaultier in the Fall/Winter 2013-2014 haute couture collection he made, presented in Rome during the latest edition of Altaroma, which featured the patterns and sophisticated constructions being a leitmotiv of his work: corsets, stripes, transparencies, fringes evoking art deco suggestions, lace, sequins and fur (who was proud of using, as he asserted during the press conference I attended at the Hotel Flora Baglioni).

The man has appeared in this fashion show, a charming contemporary glampire has “turned into an object”, as the couturier said, emphasizing the force and theatricality of the woman he depicted. A enchanting event as well as a successful chance to meet and enjoy a legendary creative, who was extremely generous and modest during the press conference, also answering to the controversial questions of some Italian journalists (concerning the models and celebrities who would featured in the fashion show and other ones belonging to the same standard).

Instead me, I has been religiously silent, preferring hearing him, who generously spoke Italian and celebrated Rome, its suggestions, the Italian culture which has very relevant in its training as creative and individual (later, at the end of press conference I talked with him about Italian film, who has been very inspiring for him, about Federico Fellini and Luchino Visconti) and hearing  the President of Altaroma Silvia Venturini Fendi who made concrete a laudable work developing contemporary fashion, its culture under the sign of art and internationality.

L’ emancipata femminilità ha brillato ed è stata celebrata dal geniale Jean Paul Gaultier nella collezione alta moda autunno/inverno 2013-2014 da lui realizzata, presentata a Roma in occasione dell’ ultima edizione di Altaroma di cui sono stati protagonisti i motivi e le sofisticate costruzioni che sono un leitmotiv della sua opera: bustier, righe, trasparenze, frange che evocano suggestioni art decò, pizzo, paillettes, trasparenze e pelliccia ( che è stato fiero di usare, amando la pelliccia, come costui ha affermato durante la conferenza stampa a cui ho partecipato presso l’ Hotel Flora Baglioni).

L’ uomo è apparso in questa sfilata, un affascinante vampiro glam contemporaneo, trasformato in oggetto, come couturier ha detto, enfatizzando la forza e teatralità della donna da lui ritratta. Un incantevole evento che è stato anche una felice occasione per conoscere vis à vis e apprezzare un leggendario creativo che è stato estremamente generoso e modesto durante la conferenza stampa, rispondendo anche alle discutibili domande di alcune giornaliste italiane( inerenti le modelle e celebrities che avrebbero partecipato alla sfilata unitamente ad altre della medesima levatura).

Invece religiosamente silente, ho preferito ascoltarlo, il quale ha generosamente parlato in italiano e celebrato Roma, le sue suggestioni, la cultura italiana che ha avuto un ruolo molto significativo nella sua formazione creativa e individuale (successivamente, alla fine della conferenza stampa ho parlato con lui del cinema italiano, che lo ha ispirato molto, di registi quali Federico Fellini e Luchino Visconti) e ascoltando il Presidente di Altaroma Silvia Venturini Fendi la quale ha concretizzato una felice opera che consolida la moda contemporanea, la sua cultura all’ insegna dell’ arte e l’ internazionalità.

A smashing event organized by UN agency ITC and Altaroma, a fashion show which was held in Rome at the Complesso del Santo Spirito during Altaroma and featured four brands, Christie Brown, Ghana brand designed by Aisha Obuobi, Kiki Clothing by Titi Ademola (London native having African parents) who made a collection inspired by the Northern Africa, Portiener Roth, Switzerland brand created by Sabine Portenier and Evelyne Roth who used textiles coming from Burkina Faso and the brilliant and renowned Italian-Haitian fashion designer Stella Jean. A celebration of Africa as well as ethnic suggestions that gave rise to fun collections under the sign of color, craftsmanship, embodying a vibrant concept. A laudable initiative which hopefully follows, being a way to celebrate the Africa culture as well as emancipate people from poverty through work, fashion industry its continuous, local development in countries as Africa.

Un formidabile evento organizzato dall’ agenzia ONU ITC ed Altaroma, una sfilata che si è tenuta a Roma presso il Complesso del Santo Spirito in occasione di Altaroma ed ha avuto quali protagonisti quattro brand, Christie Brown, brand del Ghana disegnato da Aisha Obuobi, Kiki Clothing di Titi Ademola (natia di Londra da genitori africani) che ha realizzato una collezione che si ispira al Nord Africa, Portiener Roth, brand svizzero creato da Sabine Portenier ed Evelyne Roth che si sono avvalse di tessuti del Burkina Faso e la brillante e rinomata fashion designer italo-haitiana Stella Jean. Una celebrazione dell’ Africa come anche delle suggestioni etniche che hanno dato vita a divertenti collezioni all’ insegna del colore, l’ artigianalità che racchiudono un vibrante concept. Una lodevole iniziativa che sperabilmente prosegua, essendo un modo per celebrare la cultura dell’ Africa come anche emancipare gli individui dalla povertà attraverso il lavoro, l’ industria della moda, il suo continuo sviluppo locale in paesi come l’ Africa.

A bright chance to think about what it has done and could be done to emancipate Africa – being paradoxically such rich of culture (www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPZGpOYfBWI) and sources – from poverty by fashion and create welfare for all – under the sign of the idea of sharing -, not for just few ones, hopefully avoiding to iterate the charitable logics of new-colonialism.

Una brillante occasione per pensare a ciò che è stato fatto e potrebbe essere fatto per emancipare l’ Africa -  che é paradossalmente così ricca di cultura  (www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPZGpOYfBWI) e risorse – dalla povertà mediante la moda , creare benessere per tutti – all’ insegna dell’ idea della condivisione -, non soltanto per pochi, sperabilmente evitando di reiterare le caritatevoli logiche del neo-colonialismo.
