Some copies from past – Spring Summer 2020

Spring Summer 2020. Guardando le sfilate mi sono accorto di dettagli che spaziano dal trucco alle calzature. Dettagli che sono spesso brutte copie di cose passati. Spesso in molti dimenticano le mode trascorse, così giornalisti e pubblico pensano si tratti di elementi frutto di creatività e innovazione. Vediamone alcuni.

Spring Summer 2020. Looking at the fashion shows I noticed details ranging from make-up to footwear. Details that are often bad copies of past things. Often many people forget the fashions passed, so journalists and the public think that these elements are that are the result of creativity and innovation. Sometimes, often, it is better the original. Let’s see three of them.

Style should celebrate individuality through the Twiggy’s make-up of the 60s, with the intention of emphasis the look, asserts Gucci Beauty. We are at Milan Fashion Week
and the models come on stage with bleach eyebrows covered with thick and dark artificial eyelashes. I personally believe that sometimes it would be better just copying from the past, avoiding slipping in a result lacking in sense, research. What do you think? In my comparison, on the left Gucci (ph Vogue Italia), in the right Twiggy in the 60s.

In my comparison Sharon Tate 1968 vs Mugler at his Paris Fashion Week SS 2020.
The unkempt eyebrows and fixed towards the other are not new. Ps: not even the eyeliner line is new, Chanel had already done it.

Boots with a particular design, which have the heel taken from the red “Delman” shoes, preserved at the Met Museum and dated 1937 – 1939. The upper part is instead a mix between the cuissardes of Roger Vivier, 1967, and the creations of André Courreges, in the photo year 1970.

A little curiosity, which has nothing to do with the above. In June I made two sketches for a project, revisiting some constriction shirts for the characters, based on their oppressed identities. What a surprise yesterday, to see that Gucci developed the same concept. On the left, my figures on the right, the images of Vogue Italia from Spring Summer 2020

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.
