Decorativism to the limit, in a metropolitan version,in between tradition and experimentation,on new FW 20 Scarves IRIS-1981 collection by MARELLA ‘s print designed by ALESSIONESI. Prints punctuated by a degradé rhythm. Vibrant surfaces with graphics of drawed fabrics, borrowed from men’s tailoring tradition: pied-de-poule, prince of wales, vichy squared, tweed. Overlapped on textures made of barbed wires, chains, precious textures built with jewels set together. Saturated color palette. Light and sophisticated constructions wink at the excesses of the 80s. They open a new season of wealth, adverse to half measures. They are a frivolous but therapeutic escape that compensates for the discontent of this particular historical moment. They bring back rhythm and magic.

From beauty to fashion. Skin care formulas and neutral design silhouettes define aesthetic of the new decade.

The “No-gender” as professionals call it, is a way to communicate to a male and female audience with products that leverage general aspirations, bypassing gender differences. Beauty has decided not to deprive itself of this trend that leverages new relationships established between couples and not even fashion, that shows androgynous and casual collections with light bodies. It is a new lifestyle. Boundaries are blurred. There is masculinity in women and vice versa. It is a form of disguise that affects all fields from fashion to beauty to design. A more playful approach is established with one’s identity: it is current society that requires flexibility, at work, in daily occupations, in relationships with others. The traditional models of eternal male and female do not disappear completely but the expression of identity becomes freer and more open. A new balance is established, in which each sex borrows from the other what finds good and useful. The evolution of current aestheticism is called beauty sharing; shared agreements, from cosmetics to fashion collections. Women use male moisturizers as well as men wear female clothes. He and She sublimate themselves in a two-way neutral identity that acquire a rediscovered rituality in the present moment, for new and old generations. Style of the new decade has been served.

PFW: SAINT LAURENT’S FEMALE PERVERSIONS

Anthony Vaccarello, creative director of SAINT LAURENT, is increasingly looking for that ready-to-wear immediately consumable, trading, without regrets, the work of model maker for that of designer. The new FW20 collection is the apotheosis of erotism, theme very dear to Monsieur Yves. A bourgeois and refined De Sade’s like fetishism. The silhouette of classic shapes winks at the 80s, updating a palette of neon colors. Latex leggings, dresses, jackets, blouses and knee-length skirts, emphasize a perverse, authoritative and casual femininity. Style versus Couture? It is the price to pay when returning to concreteness of product you lose the research of new shapes close to divination.

MFW: ALESSANDRO DELL’ACQUA CELEBRATES TEN YEARS OF N21

Pret-à-porter, after seasons in overdose of street fashion and brainstorm of forgettable influencers, abandons the excesses of catwalks and regains its adequate elegance. Finally we return to rigor: fashionable as a project instead of ephemeral narration, letting style give an unrepeatable value to the wearer. At N21, Alessandro Dell’Acqua celebrates brand’s ten years through the cornerstones of his style: androgyny, lingerie and feathers, thickening in a bourgeois silhouette immersed in a neo punk atmosphere – chains and safety pins frame each oufit – the vision is as superb as the performance. Its possible to breathe the certainty of a renewed honesty as well as the return of designers to product care and less to storytelling.

CHANEL’S TAILLEUR A TIMELESS CLASSIC

Fashion is frivolous, but of a very heavy frivolity. It is constantly changing, it is unpredictable. And yet in its incessant derailment it is penetrating. It reflects and distorts the present, announces the future and not only in the wardrobe. The dress it has always been an inescapable sign of a change taking place in society, it is a Status-Symbol. In particular the “Tailleur”. Created at the beginning of the 1920s by Coco Chanel, it is the symbol of Bourgeoisie’s discreet charm. Of what is aesthetically acceptable for ladies with a capital L: bejeweled with a rich husband and a waitress always following her. In an atmosphere of insidious respectability, Coco Chanel has created a costume revolution that is not entirely came to an end, not even today. Feminine manifesto it represents a will of appearance and a narcissistic desire.

A celebration of fashion and popular culture of the atomic age. Long live ’50’s glamour!

Since its birth our “Tailleur”, has started an evolution of shapes and volumes throughout the decades of the fast century. Geometric and sober in the 1920s. Jacket with geometric shoulders and knee-length skirt in the 1940s. With straight skirts in the Fifties, in contrast to models with mileage lenght fabrics Dior-style. Mini, essential and futuristic in the Sixties. Colorful and irreverent in the seventies. With padded shoulders in the 1980s, to exhibit power in business locations. Anorexic and colorless in the nineties.

Until we arrive to our days with an untouched silhouette. Every female icon that wore it has shaped it according to their own style according to the era in which they lived. In pink for Jacqueline Kennedy. White for Marilyn Monroe. Sulfurous but not funereal Maria Callas. In pastel tones for Grace Kelly. Tailleur, created by Coco Chanel, was born, says Lagerfeld in a 2017 documentary dedicated to him, from a simple four-pocketed jacket bought by a porter in a Hotel in Salzburg where Mademoiselle stayed for a short time.

 

MOSCHINO SS 1993 / JUNIYA WATANABE FW 2008 / MOSCHINO FW 2011

The transition from work uniform to symbol of feminine emancipation uniform was very short. Chanel’s purpose was to build a uniform or a perfect machine to dress the female body, a true design object ergonomically designed to meet different needs: movement, elegance, flexibility. Made out of materials from jersey to velvet, from lace to muslin, although the one that will go down in history was tweed, to accompany the gentle sex not only in their daily tasks but also social and official commitments.

It remains to the day of today the dress most commonly used by women who work in offices, editorial offices, parliament, but also a timeless classic, copied and interpreted by many designers in their collections. Here we propose a florilegium of images which elect Chanel’s suit as an indispensable element in the female wardrobe. A sign of timeless elegance. Coco Chanel taught us that fashion, in its heavy frivolity, is basically creation, which can still entertain and make us dream, without giving up thinking. Long life to dreams then, because a laugh will bury us!
