Unisex, with an intimate pleasure and timeless. February’s style combines essentialism of pure forms tipycal of nordic minimalism to a warm palette of neutral colors and pastels. A rare balance of opposites which coincide with a strict sartorial construction and the desire to produce casual clothing out of the norm and the custom of times, with a content which does not obey to the “planned obsolescence” of the fashion system.
In the new men’s collection for spring / summer 2011, Lucio Vanotti derive his inspiration from the symbolism of Hugo Simberg and the informal and muttered outline tipycal of Charlie Chaplin in the film “The Kid“. The collection is immersed in an atmosphere of absence and melancholy.
The silhouette is evolving into an invisible and ascetic entity and provides the symbolic material of a creature intangible, through the tailoring of the dress, made of fluid volumes for relaxed posture, while the search for form follows the principles of subtraction and synthesis. A rich collection of love for detail discernible sign of high quality. Instant classic for new generations of intellectuals who obey only and exclusively to its laws.
Literature, cinema and television are always inspired by true stories. Realism is told as a fiction by invoking the “narrative” of lives and transform reality into a set. In the exibition Set Amsterdam, at Foam from March 25th to May 29th 2011, the Dutch photographer Dana Lixenberg exhibits a portfolio of images that portray her home town and transform Amsterdam in a sort of film set.
Schiphol Airport, Fire Training Area, 2010
The documentary of images was born after she had commissioned portraits of actors for the TV series, in 8 episodes, entitled Adam and Eve, which will be aired on Dutch television from March 6th, 2011. By examining individual lives in the city of Amsterdam, Lixenberg explores public and private places: old bomb shelters, churches, cemeteries, morgues, garbage incinerator.
De Open Hof Senior Care Center, Restaurant, 2010
Focusing on silence, her lenses record blank spaces with metaphysical atmospheres, histories of interior and landscapes without people, lived or just passed through, made readable by traces left: colors, signs, objects, actions, current events.
Hotel The Globe, Room 301, 2010
Arousing feelings of emptiness and absence, her lens shifts the viewer’s attention beyond the space and to those details that define the environment; an intellectual and aesthetic research, a realism which coincides with the actual existence, transforming anthropological places into objects of contemplation .
