ARTICLE 7

FLASHBACK EDITORIAL BY THE / END MAGAZINE JANUARY 2008

Quatre fois par an il pourra se charger en l’animal qu‘il voudra, et ensuite se recharger en homme. Quatre fois par an il pourra se changer en l’homme qu’il voudra; plus, concentrer sa vie en celle d’un animal. (…) Ainsi le privilégié pourra quatre fois par a net pour un temps illimité chaque fois occuper deux corps à la fois”.

These singular verses by Stendhal associate the mutation of animal’s hair with changes in male fashion among the four seasons of the year, a metaphor that is resolved as the counterpart of a second personality suspended between man and animal in which this mutation completes and highlights the aspects of a mythological and esoteric creature, whose essence is “artifice”: the mask that, by forming the face, reveals it to itself. In the 7th article by Stendhal, the interaction with nature and the instinctive link to existence, draw the contours of a masculine aesthetic path and it is not surprising that today literature continues to inspire profound investigations into the secrets arcani of beauty and the duration of its time.

BEAUTYLOGIA – SIGNATURE CAPSULE COLLECTION BY ALESSIO NESI

Once again MARELLA chooses the creative hand of artist ALESSIO NESI for the BEAUTYLOGIA SIGNATURE CAPSULE AW 19. The new collection comes from all beauty illustrations that the artist has published on his blog over the past 10 years. Powdre, varnish, eye shadow, lipstick, perfumes. Beauty products signed by Marella but non-existent for the collection of silk scarves, 5 degradé prints with decorative patterns coming from different cultures and period of time, overlapping, layered, dedicated to the persistence of beauty. A beauty that implies an education to the eye, a capacity and willingness to be touched and excited by seeing. A standing seeing, offered and shared as source of pure pleasure, bait of seduction that transcends the value of the author and signs the modern myths of originality and recognizability. The collection is completed with a capsule collection of clothes with lipstick and razor blades prints, irreverent neo-punk symbologies as somatic identities of metropolitan territories, for fluid t-shirts and shirts and geometric diamond shape patterns on jackets, pants, skirts and dresses. Make-up products such as perfumes are the most manageable form of intelligence, perfectible design objects, small work of art to take with you at all times.

Irreverent neo-punk symbologies as somatic identities of metropolitan territories for the project BEAUTYLOGIA.

Prints for dresses with MARELLA’s Lipstick and Razor Blades.

Scarf print with MARELLA’s Lipstick BEAUTYLOGIA Signature Capsule by ALESSIO NESI new collaboration with MARELLA for FW19. Blush, eyeshadows, lipstick and perfumes, make-up products, non-existent, signed by Marella, play with graphic decorations and vivid nuances of the underground society. A collection of prints that pay homage to my BEAUTY illustrations published in the last 10 years on PROPRIETEXCLUSIVE.IT.

BEAUTY ICONS: SPRING-SUMMER 2018 MAKE-UP COLLECTION

A saturated, vivid, cold and artificial color becomes protagonist of Spring-Summer 2018 make-up collections, on blush, eyeshadows, lipstick and eye pencils. Nuances by the POP heritage are enriched with sophisticated metropolitan metallic effects coming straight from the New York underground society of the ’70s and’ 80s; they are are a mix of glamour and primordial hedonism. In a present which lacks in clear reference points and in which everyone resembles something without being so, yesterday icons become a reference point for tomorrow’s look, so to a small group of evergreen icons like Madonna, Candy Darling, Debbie Harry, Grace Jones, Edie Sedgwick and Bianca Jagger, the task of narrating beauty-trends of this season in a selection of images.
