AYRES & CO. Indianapolis  1911

Abito realizzato in delicata seta nera con collo in tulle di seta e pizzo chimico color avorio ornato da coralli color oro sul petto.

La linea del vestito, elegante e drammatica, rimanda all’archetipo di diva noir tipico del cinema inizi secolo. Donne ritratte in stato di altalenante passione e follia, avvolte in un aurea di mistero e connotate da note di maledettismo.

E’ questo un abito realizzato all’interno della più importante sartoria dell’Indiana in attivo per tutto il ‘900, nota anche per aver accolto tra le sue lavoranti le tantissime giovani emigranti europee. La sartoria è ora sede di un importante omonimo museo della moda.

Dress made of delicate black silk with silk tulle collar and ivory-colored chemical lace adorned with gold-colored coral on the chest.

The silhouette, elegant and dramatic, refers to the archetype of vamp lady typical of early century cinema. Women portrayed in a state of fluctuating passion and madness, wrapped in an aura of mystery and characterized by notes of malice.

This is a dress made inside the most important tailoring of Indiana in active throughout the ‘900, also known for having welcomed among its workers the many young European emigrants. The tailoring is now home to an important fashion museum of the same name.

FLAPPER DRESS  1927

Questo vestito è realizzato in un sofisticato tulle di seta interamente ricamato con pailettes grigio perla e argento e conchiglie colorate provenienti dal lontano Oceano Pacifico. Il tutto genera dei bellissimi decori sul fondo del vestito, con un chiaro ricamo all’art-Dèco e quindi alla nuova scoperta della sfavillante cultura orientale.

This dress is made of a sophisticated silk tulle entirely embroidered with pearl and silver gray sequins together with handpainted shells coming from the distant Pacific Ocean. All this generates beautiful decorations on the bottom of the dress, with a clear embroidery to the art-Dèco and then to the new discovery of the sparkling oriental culture.

When Madonna was Evita

madonna as evita peron dresses same fashion dress fur fashion cinema movie history moda gown dior fendi ferragamo luciano lapadula blog blogger style costume

Cinema, Moda, Musica incontrano la storia. Siamo nel 1996 e una camaleontica Madonna indossa i panni di Evita Peron, attrice e adorata First Lady argentina nell’immediato dopoguerra. Per il film, diretto da Alan Parker, Italia e Francia gareggiano tra loro in sala costumi: la sartoria romana Tirelli cura il guardaroba con Penny Rose, vestiti e tailleur ricreati su modello di quelli indossati da Evita si alternano a capi autentici anni ’40 e il New Look di Dior trionfa per la sera con autentici capolavori di alta moda.

Le pellicce indossate da Madonna sono create da Fendi, per la casa di moda un classico dai tempi di “Gruppo di Famiglia in un Interno”. Per le calzature, invece, ci si ricorda di Ferragamo, brand amato in vita dalla Peron. Nulla dunque è trascurato, le bellissime acconciature di Martin Samuel completano un aspetto il cui risultato è straordinario: il film vince l’Oscar e la costumista, per gli 85 abiti presenti nel film, si aggiudica il BAFTA.

E forse questo grande lavoro di ricerca e ricostruzione sarebbe piaciuto a Monsier Christian Dior, il quale un giorno disse:

“l’unica regina che io abbia mai vestito è stata Evita Peron”.

Luciano Lapadula

Cinema, Fashion, Music meet history. We are in 1996 and a chameleon-like Madonna wearing the clothes of Evita Peron, actress and beloved Argentine First Lady in the immediate post-war period. For the movie, directed by Alan Parker, Italy and France compete in the costumes room: the Roman tailoring Tirelli takes care of the wardrobe with Penny Rose, clothes and suits recreated on the model worn by Evita alternate with authentic ’40s and Dior’s New Look style gown for the evening with authentic high fashion masterpieces. The furs worn by Madonna are created by Fendi, for the fashion house a classic from the time of “Conversation Piece”. For the shoes, however, they remember Ferragamo, a brand loved by Peron in life. Nothing is therefore overlooked, the beautiful hairstyles of Martin Samuel complete an aspect whose result is extraordinary: the movie wins the Oscar and the costume designer, for the 85 dresses in the film, is awarded the BAFTA. And perhaps this great research work and reconstruction would have pleased Monsieur Christian Dior, who one day said:”The only queen I ever dressed was Eva Peron.”

Bella fino a morire: Maria Montez | When Beauty Kills

maria montez history fashion cinema luciano lapadula old hollywood blog scrittore blogger moda insegnante historian

Aladino, dal film “Arabian Nights”:

se devi lasciarci, non andare fin quando non sarai tornato

Fu attraversata da un fremito quando ascoltò la battuta, Maria Montez. Il film è “Arabian Nights” e siamo nel 1942. La bellissima attrice dominicana era all’apice del successo. I suoi occhi di brace consumavano i sogni degli uomini e le sue fotografie riempivano i loro armadietti celebrandola come una tra le prime Pin-Up hollywoodiane. Nata a Santa Cruz de Barahona nel 1912 come María Antonia Africa Gracia Vidal di Sacro Silas scelse di farsi chiamare Montez, un nome breve ma energico come la sua personalità.

Il matrimonio naufragato e il riscontro nel lavoro di modella  la spinsero ad osare, a trasferirsi ad Hollywood per sfondare nel cinema. Era disposta a tutto per raggiungere la gloria, così arrivarono piccole comparse prima, ruoli da protagonista poi. La sensuale latina divenne regina del filone cinematografico escapista, che permetteva agli spettatori una breve illusoria fuga dalla triste realtà segnata dalla guerra. Con la fine del conflitto, però, la magia si interruppe, la moda della bellezza esotica tramontò e quelle donne fatali cedettero il proprio ruolo alle attrici platinate dai sorrisi e dalle curve rassicuranti.

Maria era ancora giovane e bellissima, celebre per il suo carattere impetuoso, per il suo apparire vistoso alle feste, per la sua sfrenata ricerca di consensi. Tentò così di rimettersi in gioco in Europa, recitando in Francia e in Italia, ma quel nuovo cinema introspettivo, era distante dal suo essere carnale.

Aveva 39 anni Maria quando inaspettatamente Hollywood si ricordò di lei e la scelse per una parte. Lei, che per contratto doveva essere sempre avvenente, non ebbe il tempo di festeggiare.

Ripetendo il suo rituale di bellezza, riempì di acqua fumante la lussuosa vasca da bagno in marmo bianco, un bicchiere di cognac, le candele accese. L’America voleva la Maria di venti anni prima, doveva essere bellissima, aprì la rotella dell’acqua calda ancora un po’ di più, il vapore si condensò sui muri della stanza, sulla sua fotografia che parve scomparire man mano che il corpo della diva si immergeva per l’ultima volta nell’acqua bollente, oltre 60 gradi. Stop. Buona l’ultima.

From the movie “Arabian Nights”, year 1942. Aladdin:

If you have to leave, don’t go until you come back

Maria Montez was left speechless when she listened to these words. The film is “Arabian Nights” and we are in 1942. The beautiful Dominican actress was at the height of success. Her eyes of embers consumed the dreams of men and her photographs filled their lockers celebrating her as one of the first Hollywood Pin-Ups. Born in Santa Cruz de Barahona in 1912 as María Antonia Africa Gracia Vidal of Sacro Silas chose to be called Montez, a short but energetic name like her personality. The marriage was shipwrecked and the response in the work of the model pushed her to dare, moving to Hollywood. She was willing to do anything to achieve glory, so little start played minor parts in film, then starring roles. The sensual Latina girl became the queen of the escapism movie trend, that allowed the spectators a brief illusory escape from the sad reality marked by the II world war. With the end of the conflict, however, the magic stopped, the fashion of exotic beauty went down and those fatal women gave up their role to the platinized actresses with reassuring smiles and curves. Maria was still young and beautiful, famous for her impetuous character, for her showy appearance at parties, for her unbridled search for consensus. She tried a new career in Europe, playing in France and in Italy, but that new introspective cinema was far from her being Latin, carnal. She was 39 years old when Hollywood unexpectedly chose her for a part in a movie. She, who by contract must always be attractive, did not have time to celebrate. Repeating her ritual of beauty, she filled the luxurious white marble bathtub with steaming water, a glass of cognac, and lit candles. America wanted the Maria twenty years ago, shet had to be beautiful, she opened the hot water wheel a little more, the steam condensed on the walls of the room, on her photograph that seemed to disappear as the body of the diva immersed itself for the last time in boiling water, over 60 degrees. Stop. Good the last one.

When an old photo describes a moment in life

La modella, è elegante con i suoi capelli biondi  raccolti in uno chignon illuminato da un fermaglio dorato. Indossa un maglioncino verde come la speranza mentre, dando le spalle a noi e alla camera, è immersa nella fotografia che stringe tra le mani. Contempla un ritratto in bianco e nero, sbiadito come un malinconico ricordo. 

Quest’opera d’arte è frutto del lavoro della fotogafa Frances McLaughlin-Gill, e venne pubblicato il 1′ dicembre 1946 su Vogue America. Frances fu la prima donna a ottenere un contratto come fotografa per Vogue Usa.

The model is elegant with her hair pulled back and held up with a clip. Her back is to us and to the camera, and she’s wearing a low cut evening crochet sweater, green as hope. The #atmosphere is full of feeling and #sadness. She is looking at one photo. In black and white like an old #memory.

This atrwork was made by Frances McLaughlin-Gill for Vogue, year 1946. Frances was the first female fashion photographer under contract with #Vogue

Spider Dresses in 120 years of Fashion

La visione estetica del corpo rivestito da una ragnatela ha sedotto sin dal passato l’animo di stilisti, costumisti, e di donne desiderose di apparire come sensuali e pericolose aracnidi. Ho scelto per voi alcune suggestive immagini che descrivono al meglio il rapporto tra questa simbologia e l’abito, fotografie che ci raccontano di una tipologia di femminilità che segue la moda del proprio tempo, incentrata sulla caratterizzazione della donna attraverso un erotismo fatale.

The aesthetic vision of the body covered by a spiderweb has seduced the soul of stylists, costume designers, and women who yearned to appear as sensual and dangerous arachnids. I have chosen for you some suggestive images that best describe the relationship between this symbolism and the dress, photographs that tell us about a special kind of femininity that follows the fashion of one’s own time, focused on the characterization of women through a fatal eroticism.
