women collections a/w 2018.19

Art and fashion are two inexhaustible sources of inspiration that influence one another. Countless collaborations between artists and designers have shown that designers too are artists – just think of how many exhibitions and retrospectives the major museums are dedicating to them. Because sometimes a dress can be a real work of art, something that is enjoyed and admired for its beauty, perfection or deliberate imperfection, harmony or intentional disharmony of shapes, lines and colours. The relationship between art and fashion, developed over the past century with twists and turns as society and consequently clothes have changed, reached its peak in the ’80s when art institutions opened their doors to designers, legitimising their work, as New York’s Metropolitan Museum did in 1983 for Yves Saint Laurent. But it is the…

There were lots of artsy references on the latest Paris runways, with various collections drawing inspiration from art works or movements and freely interpreted by the designer. Like Dries Van Noten’s interpretation of Art Brut and its particular link with ’70s psychedelic culture. The focus was on optical prints merged or paired with stylised florals on oversize parkas, tops, loose trousers, pencil skirts, some asymmetric, and long fluid dresses – all worn with boots and long decorated gloves. The same movement inspired Richard René for Guy Laroche, who used it in his signature hyper-minimalist context. The ‘primitive’ style of Art Brut was expressed through black brushstrokes across dresses and coats that were linear and white like sketch paper. Gold was added for the finale, with graphic motifs or irregular ‘drips’ in contrast…

There is no more appetising term for a designer than ‘epoch-making’, because the whole of the last century was a succession of iconic style decades, with pieces that left a profound mark on fashion history. Ici à Paris, the shows were inundated by a wave of Sixties and Seventies looks (in a nod to the fiftieth anniversary of ’68). The Chloé woman looked to the ’70s and strong females such as Anjelica Huston and Stéphane Audran. More bourgeois than protesters, they wore fluid shirt-dresses without buttons with a deep neckline emphasised by chain necklaces. More rebellious looks included flared zipped trousers worn with a turtleneck or high-necked blouse with cut-outs over the abdomen or shoulders. Mademoiselle Dior was more revolutionary. The brand celebrated 50 years since the Paris May protests with tartan…

feminine tailoring

A woman in a masculine suit has a sensuality that not even a slip can convey. While the latest menswear shows turned the suit almost into a tracksuit, it was included in womenswear as if it had always been there. Balenciaga’s was structured, starched, and crease-free, with a high-tech process added by creative director Demna Gvasalia to further shape the silhouette. The results were solid, sculptural couture jackets and coats with structured shoulders and emphasised waistline worn with a turtleneck or masculine shirt and straight leg trousers. John Galliano’s tailoring was undoubtedly more romantic as it was teamed with lingerie and featured a retro mood. Classic trousers, blazers and coats were styled with slip dresses, visible underwear, transparencies and bodices, as well as multi-strand pearls and hats with feathers and a veil.…

collezioni donna a/i 2018.19

Arte e moda, fonti inesauribili d’ispirazione che si contaminano a vicenda; non si contano le collaborazioni tra artisti e designer e spesso i designer sono essi stessi artisti, basti pensare a quante mostre e retrospettive i musei più importanti dedicano loro. Perché a volte un abito può essere una vera e propria opera d’arte, qualcosa che, più che indossare, si fruisce e si ammira per la bellezza, la perfezione o l’imperfezione voluta, l’armonia o la disarmonia, appositamente cercata, di forme, linee e colori. Un rapporto, quello tra arte e moda, sviluppatosi soprattutto nel secolo scorso con evoluzioni, svolte, battute d’arresto anche, in concomitanza con i cambiamenti della società e, di conseguenza, dei costumi e che ha raggiunto il proprio apice negli anni ’80, quando le istituzioni d’arte hanno appunto aperto…

Tanti i riferimenti artsy sulle ultime passerelle parigine, con diverse collezioni che hanno come tematica o ispirazione opere o correnti artistiche, naturalmente a libera interpretazione del designer. Come quella che dà Dries Van Noten dell’Art Brut e del suo particolare legame con la cultura psichedelica anni ’70. Focus quindi sulle stampe optical che si fondono o si abbinano a quelle floreali stilizzate, su parka oversize, top, pantaloni ampi, gonne a matita, anche asimmetriche, e long dress fluidi, il tutto portato con stivali e guanti lunghi decorati. Il riferimento alla stessa corrente che Richard René inserisce nella collezione per Guy Laroche, si inserisce invece in un contesto iper-minimalista come piace al designer. Lo stile ‘primitivo’ dell’Art Brut si esprime attraverso pennellate trasversali nere su abiti e coat bianchi e lineari come fogli da…
