Giant Bucket Hats: in fashion from Belle Époque to 2020

Giant Bucket Hats: in fashion from Belle Époque to 2020

Cappelli enormi, stravaganti, che agli albori dello scorso secolo facevano apparire le donne simili a colorati funghi e fiori eleganti. Questa tipologia di copricapo, dalla forma a grande casco rovesciato, ha ripreso linfa nel corso del ‘900 per tornare in auge durante questi ultimi anni. Pressoché disattesa la proposta di Louis Vuitton nella sua fall winter del 2012, il “Bucket Hat” è stato rielaborato da Marc Jacobs e Coach 1941 nella fw del 2017, per riapparire pressoché identico nella collezione Nina Ricci e Dior dell’autunno inverno 2019 – 2020. Ecco una mia accurata selezione per voi.

Giant, extravagant hats, which at the dawn of the last century made women look like colorful mushrooms and elegant flowers. This type of headgear, with a large inverted bucket shape, has taken on new life during the 1900s to come back into vogue during these last few years. Louis Vuitton’s proposal in his 2012 fall winter was almost completely dismissed, the “Bucket Hat” was reworked by Marc Jacobs and Coach 1941 in the fw of 2017, to reappear almost identical in the Nina Ricci and Dior collection of autumn winter 2019 – 2020 Here is an accurate selection I made for you.

CHAPEAU from 1959 to 2019

CHAPEAU from 1959 to 2019

Il mio lavoro mi porta con frequenza a riscontrare similitudini, copie e brutte copie di abiti e accessori del passato, riproposte nel contemporaneo. Uso il termine “contemporaneo” invece di “moderno” perché ritengo più innovativi gli originali delle copie. Oggi vi mostro il copricapo in pizzo a falda larga sul viso, realizzato per Valentino fall winter 2019 – 2020 e indossato in passerella da Kaia Gerber. Lo stesso design, in tessuto trasparente, fu proposto nel 1959 da Nina Ricci. La modella nelle foto sotto indossa infatti un abito con copricapo chiamato “Jeasmine” e realizzato dal designer Jules-François Crahay (1917–1988), a Belgian-born French fashion artist who worked for the fashion house from 1952 to 1963 . Più sotto una creazione di per Adolfo Sardinia per Emme, sempre dal 1959.

My work frequently leads me to find similarities, copies and bad copies of clothes and accessories of the past re-proposed in the contemporary. I use the term “contemporary” instead of “modern” because I consider the originals of the copies to be more innovative. Today I show you the wide-brimmed lace headgear on the face, created for Valentino fall winter 2019 – 2020 and worn on the catwalk by Kaia Gerber. The same design, in semi-transparent fabric, was proposed in 1959 by Nina Ricci. In fact, the model in the picture below wears a dress together with an hat, called “Jeasmine” and made by the designer Jules-François Crahay (1917–1988), Belgian-born French fashion artist who worked for the fashion house from 1952 to 1963. Last pic: a creation of Adolfo Sardinia for Emme, 1959.

Back in fashion: 1916 and New Look

La moda, si sa, è fatta di eterni ritorni in fatto di stile, gusti, tendenze. E non è questo un fenomeno del tutto contemporaneo, anzi, affonda le proprie origini nella genesi della novità vestimentaria, che a dispetto del vocabolo, di nuovo spesso non ha nulla. Si confronti in proposito lo strano caso che riguarda la regina di Francia Maria Antonietta, discusso nel mio libro “Il Macabro e il Grottesco nella Moda e nel Costume“. Oggi vi presento la curiosa rielaborazione New Look di una tendenza apparsa nel 1916. Abiti più corti dei precedenti, dai volumi sorprendentemente innovativi, morbidi, con gonne ampie e arricciate sostenute da sottovesti a balze. Colori, fantasie, capricci neo barocchi si spostano così dal ’16 al ’47 per durare questa volta più a lungo. La mia selezione fotografica per voi.

Fashion, as we know, is made up of eternal returns in terms of style, tastes and trends. And this is not a completely contemporary phenomenon, indeed, it has its origins in the genesis of the modern dress, which despite the word, often has nothing of modern. Compare in this regard the strange case concerning the queen of France Marie Antoinette, discussed in my book “The Macabre and the Grotesque in Fashion and Costume“. Today I present to you all the curious New Look reworking of a trend that appeared in 1916. Shorter dresses than the previous ones, with surprisingly innovative volumes, soft, with wide and gathered skirts supported by flounced petticoats. Colors, fantasies, new-baroque trends move from ’16 to ’47 to last this time longer. My photo selection for you.

5 drawings from Andrew Loomis that look as 90s supermodels

andrew loomis supermodel 90s 40s hairstyle makeup art blog fashion museum storia luciano lapadula moda yves saint laurent ss summer 1996 90er blog blogger moda

La riflessione sulla bellezza porta a percorrere strade impervie, in cui è facile smarrirsi nella ricerca della perfezione che lasci riconoscere il bello in senso universale e oggettivo. Da qui parte il fremito che mi ha attraversato quando ho visto i disegni di Andrew Loomis: in alcune sue opere degli anni ’40 infatti, pare l’artista abbia ritratto alcune supermodelle anni ’90 anticipandone l’immagine di 50 anni circa. Vediamo tre di questi miei confronti.

The reflection on beauty leads to travel through impervious roads, in which it is easy to lose oneself in the search for perfection that allows us to recognize beauty in a universal and objective sense. From here starts the thrill that crossed me when I saw the drawings of Andrew Loomis: in some of his artworks from 40s it seems the artist has portrayed some supermodels of the 90s anticipating the image of that kind of beauty about 50 years. We see five of these comparisons of mine.
