Premio UBU 2017 – Licia Lanera in un mio abito del 1938

L’abito, dal mio archivio, è stato indossato dall’attrice Licia Lanera, madrina della quarantesima edizione del Premio Ubu tenutasi a Milano lo scorso 16 dicembre.

Proviene dalla Berlino del 1938. In crêpe di seta, il suo design rigoroso presenta le influenze tipiche dello stile razionalista.

La parte anteriore è caratterizzata da una sovrapposizione di tessuto che partendo dallo scollo ricade sul tubino inferiore,terminando in due pannelli mobili.

Non resta che presentarvi il vestito, augurandomi vi piaccia.

 

This dress comes from my archive and was worn by actress Licia Lanera, during the fortieth edition of the Ubu Theatre Festival, in Milan last December 16th.

It comes from Berlin, year 1938. In silk crêpe, its rigorous design presents the typical influences of the rationalist style.

The front part is characterized by an overlap of fabric that starts from the neckline falls on the lower sheath, ending in two mobile panels.

You just have to look at the dress, wishing you like it.

Tarakànova Princess: history of a tragedy

Bella come la più tragica tra le figure femminili nella storia, enigmatica come una sciarada senza tempo, la giovane principessa Tarakànova fece la propria comparsa sulle scene della politica nel 1772, durante il regno della Zarina Caterina II di Russia.

Alla morte di Elizaveta Petròvna, figlia di Pietro il Grande, la giovane comparve dall’ombra dell’ignoto sotto il nome di principessa Vladimirskajaasserendo di essere la figlia segreta, unica erede, della deceduta imperatrice e per tanto legittima erede al trono.

Minata nel ruolo di sovrana, Caterina II ordinò che la giovane, rifugiatasi in Italia, fosse catturata. Avrebbe dovuto occuparsi del rapimento il Conte Grigorij Orlòv, che tuttavia una volta incontrata la donna se ne innamorò perdutamente, venendo corrisposto. Giunti in Russia a bordo di una nave, il giovane cercò in ogni modo di salvarle la vita, scoperto, venne insieme a lei condannato a morte.

Come nelle favole dall’epilogo più triste, la bella principessa fu imprigionata nella fortezza dei SS. Pietro e Paolo a Pietroburgo, dove circondata da topi e avvolta dalle tenebre morì, secondo la leggenda, annegando in seguito alla storica inondazione del 1777. Altre fonti invece asseriscono la bella sia morta nella sua cella durante il 1775, malata di tisi.

Pittori, letterati e registi internazionali hanno dedicato a questo controverso e affascinante personaggio tele intense, pagine drammatiche e metri di pellicola intrisi di sentimento. Una curiosità, nel film del 1938 compaiono due artisti ancora sconosciuti: Anna Magnani, nel ruolo di un’aggressiva cameriera, e Alberto Sordi in quello di uno studente condotto al patibolo. Alberto era giovane e la barba non gli era cresciuta, dovette indossarne una posticcia realizzata dal truccatore di scena.

Ecco alcune significative immagini.

************************************

As beautiful as the most tragic female figures in history, enigmatic as a timeless charade, the young princess Tarakanova made her appearance on the political scene in 1772, during the reign of the Tsarina Catherine II of Russia. On the death of the Empress Elizaveta Petròvna, daughter of Peter the Great, under the name of Vladimirskaja princess, the girl appeared from the shadows of the unknown claiming to be her secret daughter and therefore legitimate to the throne. Worried to loose her  role of Empress, Catherine II ordered that the woman, refuges in Italy, was captured by Count Grigory Orlov, who however once met the woman fell in love with her.

Once in Russia on board a ship, the young man did all he could to save her life, when their love story was discovered, the both were sentenced to death. As in the saddest tales, the beautiful princess was imprisoned in the fortress of SS. Peter and Paul, surrounded by rats and shrouded by darkness she died, according to legend, drowned after the historic flooding that took place in St. Petersburg in 1777. Other sources assert she ed in her cell in 1775. Painters, writers and international filmmakers dedicated to this controversial and fascinating character, intense paintings, dramatic pages and meters of film soaked feeling.

 Here are a few pictures.

“The Macabre and Grotesque in Fashion and Costume History”

SHOP: “The Macabre and Grotesque in Fashion and Costume History”

Dal 1938 al 2016: la Zeppa di Salvatore Ferragamo

Orgoglio italiano il bravissimo stilista calzaturiero Salvatore Ferragamo è riuscito a fondere l’arte con la necessità del cambiamento sociale e con lo stile del proprio tempo. Uno tra i più mirabili risultati in tal senso è la celeberrima calzatura disegnata per l’attrice Judy Garland nel lontano 1938.

Italian pride, the skilled footwear designer Salvatore Ferragamo has managed to merge art with the need for social change and the style of one’s own time. One of the most admirable results in this sense is the famous shoe designed for the actress Judy Garland back in 1938. It is a sandal with upper in kid, the high rounded wedge is made with several layers of cork covered with suede. Brilliant use of cork, a local product that met the favors of the leader in compliance with autarkic laws.Initially condemned and epitetted as “orthopedic shoes” the “platform shoes” found an amazing success in America and later in Italy. This type of footwear is back to being fashionable during the ’70s before and then’ 90s, not to fade almost never again from the catwalks and wardrobes of women.The style of this artistic creation is still today copied and reproduced with slight changes of the pejorative times. The one below is the proposal by Jeffrey Campbell.

Le calzature realizzate da Salvatore Ferragamo per la bella Judy Garland – 1938

E’ un sandalo con tomaia in capretto, l’alta zeppa bombata è ricavata con vari strati di sughero ricoperti di camoscio. Geniale l’utilizzo del sughero, prodotto nostrano che incontrava i favori del duce nel rispetto delle leggi autarchiche.

Inizialmente condannate ed epitetate come “scarpe ortopediche” le “platform shoes” riscontrarono un successo strepitoso in America e successivamente in Italia. Questo tipo di calzature sono tornate ad essere alla moda durante gli anni ’70 prima e gli anni ’90 poi, per non svanire quasi mai più dalle passerelle e dagli armadi delle donne.

Lo stile di questa creazione artistica è ancora oggi copiato e riprodotto con lievi cambiamenti delle volte peggiorativi. Quella qui sotto è la proposta di Jeffrey Campbell.

Quello che invece ho fotografato a Milano è un modello proposto per questo autunno inverno che riprende l’altro del 1938, in un eterno riciclo delle idee e degli stili.

The onest  photographed in Milan, however, is a model proposed for this autumn winter that resumed the other of 1938, in an eternal recycling of ideas and styles.
