Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun: when art meets fashion

luciano lapadula moda china actress anna may wong blogger chinese 20s 1920s blog fashion magazine culture creepy macabre grotesque

Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842) è senza dubbio la più significativa artista donna nella Francia del Rococò. Emancipata, dotata di una raffinata bellezza e di un talento straordinario, ha ritratto personaggi illustri e alla moda durante il regno di Maria Antonietta proseguendo nel periodo Neoclassico. Ho selezionato alcune sue opere analizzando dettagli che raccontano stili e tendenze sorprendenti.

Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun (1755-1842) is undoubtedly the most significant female artist in Rococo France. Emancipated, endowed with a refined beauty and an extraordinary talent, she portrayed illustrious and fashionable characters during the reign of Marie Antoinette, continuing in that Neoclassical period that is very present in the artist’s canvases. I have selected some of her works by analyzing amazing details.

20s Flapper girls from China

luciano lapadula moda china actress anna may wong blogger chinese 20s 1920s blog fashion magazine culture creepy macabre grotesque

Una nuova tipologia di donna nasce in Cina durante gli anni ’20. La sfrenatezza della vita occidentale, legata al ritrovato benessere, invade l’Oriente e la sua moda che lentamente è sedotta dall’immagine à la Garçonne. Il pesante cerone, gli ombrellini di carta, i fascianti kimono in seta cedono il passo ad impalpabili abiti  in chiffon, a trucchi meno vistosi, ad acconciature “alla maschietta”. E si fa strada ad Hollywood la prima tra le attrici cinesi, Anna May Wong, destinata a divenire un’icona di stile per il mondo intero. Di seguito una selezione di immagini che testimoniano questa rivoluzione sociale e vestimentaria in Cina.

A kind of woman was born in China during the 1920s. The wildness of Western life, linked to the refounded welfare, invades the Orient and its fashion that was slowly seduced by the style “à la Garçonne”. The heavy make-up, the paper umbrellas, the kimono silk bindings give way to impalpable chiffon dresses, to less conspicuous make-up, to “boyish” hairstyles. And the first of the Chinese actresses, Anna May Wong, was making her way to Hollywood, destined to become a style icon for the whole world. Below for you a selection of images that testify to this social and clothing chinese revolution.

Circassienne Fashion: Punk style from XVIII sec

il macabro e il grottesco nella moda e nel costume history luciano lapadula libro robe à la circassioenne book scrittore fashion magazine blog blogger expert banner

«Fu Mademoiselle Aïssé la donna che lanciò la grottesca tendenza vestimentaria denominata robe à la circassienne. Il suo destino segnò la storia del costume in modo eccezionale: proveniente dalla Circassia, nella zona del Caucaso, bella e insofferente, fu
acquistata al mercato degli schiavi a Costantinopoli dall’ambasciatore di Francia Monsieur de Ferriol. Il suo abito era aperto sul davanti e caratterizzato da ben tre cordoni per essere rialzato sino alla caviglia, maniche più corte di quelle della sottoveste, che invece aveva una cascata di pizzi che giungeva sino al polso.

Ottenuto con tessuti a forti cromie contrastanti e adornato da strisce e inserti animalier, lo stile circassienne anticipò di secoli nella propria essenza lo spirito del punk della seconda metà del Novecento.

Aggressività e stupore, rottura con gli eleganti schemi di uno stile perbenista, origine suburbana sono solo alcune delle affinità che in un volo pindarico congiungono due mondi apparentemente lontanissimi tra loro.»

«Mademoiselle Aïssé was the woman which launched the grotesque trend called robe à la circassienne. Her destiny signed the history of costume in an exceptional way: coming from the Circassia, in the area of the Caucasus, beautiful and impatient, she was purchased at the slave market in Constantinople by the ambassador of France Monsieur de Ferriol.

Her dress was open at the front and featured from three cords to be raised up to the ankle, sleeves more short of those of the petticoat, which instead had a cascade of lace that cames to the wrist.

Obtained with fabrics with strong colors contrasting and adorned with stripes and animal inserts, the Circassian style she anticipated centuries in its essence the spirit of the punk of the second half of the twentieth century.

Aggression and amazement, break with the elegant schemes of a respectable style, suburban origin they are just some of the affinities that in a pindaric flight  join two worlds apparently very distant between them.»

Morphine from Belle Époque

morphine history of drug droga belle eopque 1800 victorian 1890 1900 blog fashion moda blogger storia tools ad vintage illustration arte art creepy gothic historia histoire

Mitizzazione e consumo della droga non sono fenomeni moderni, ma provengono da rituali che affondano la propria nascita molto lontano nel tempo. L’arte, nelle sue forme più disparate, ha tracciato dei precisi quadri che descrivono l’utilizzo delle sostanze stupefacenti nell’alternarsi dei periodi storici. E’ affascinante quanto accaduto sul finire dell’Ottocento, quando all’estetica della donna immersa tra corsetti e fiori delicati si alternò quella di una fatale mantide, maledetta e pericolosa. Questa nuova dimensione femminile, emancipata e seducente, destabilizzò i ruoli sociali proponendo un’immagine perversa, sfrontata, impregnata questa volta di profumi oppiacei. Analizzo di seguito una serie di immagini che riguardano la Morfina, una tra le droghe più consumate da queste eroine della perdizione durante la Belle Époque.

Mythologizing and consumption of drugs are not modern phenomena, but come from rituals that sink their birth far in time. The art, in its most disparate forms, has drawn precise pictures that describe the use of drugs in the alternation of historical periods. It is fascinating what happened at the end of the nineteenth century, when the aesthetics of the woman immersed in corsets and delicate flowers alternated with that of a fatal, damned and dangerous mantis. This new feminine dimension, emancipated and seductive, destabilized social roles by proposing a perverse, shameless image, impregnated this time with opiate perfumes. I analyze below a series of images concerning Morphine, one of the most consumed drugs by these heroines of perdition during the Belle Époque.
