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.

Pierre Cardin sequin gown, 1965 and Pierre Balmain on runway in Milan, 27/09/2019 for his ss 2020, ph Vogue Italia. Different dresses, same mood.

Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche 1976-77 and Celine prêt-à-porter ss 2020

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

Lo scorso 14 febbraio ho realizzato un evento per il Rotary Club di Bari, location la storica “Villa Romanazzi Carducci”. La manifestazione, “Amore e Moda”, ha celebrato la festa di San Valentino attraverso la presentazione del mio libro “Il Macabro e il Grottesco nella Moda e nel Costume” ed Progedit, insieme a una sfilata di abiti d’epoca provenienti dal mio archivio “Lerario Lapadula“. Durante il reading dal testo, incentrato sul ruolo di personaggi storici significativi per l’avvento di nuove tendenze, hanno sfilato abiti a partire dagli anni ’20 per giungere ai recenti 2000, alcuni già fotografati e inseriti nel volume. Le immagini sono di Saverio Damiani Foto Art. Ringrazio per l’aiuto il mio collega e stilista Vito Antonio Lerario e la nostra collaboratrice Carlotta Labombarda. Ringrazio le PR e organizzatrici Marcella Loporchio e Zora Giovanna Del Buono, oltre che naturalmente tutti i presenti. Ecco alcuno scatti.

Cannes Festival: history of the best look

E’ iniziata ieri la settantesima edizione del Festival del cinema di Cannes, dedicata all’attrice italiana Claudia Cardinale. Per l’occasione sono stato ospite di Michele Cucuzza e Mary De Gennaro nel salotto di Buon Pomeriggio. Ho analizzato per i telespettatori i look che hanno segnato, a mio avviso, la storia della kermesse grazie alla raffinatezza e alla bellezza di abiti e indossatrici. Non mancano anche alcuni outfit che hanno generato scandalo. Ecco qui la mia ricerca storica.

Nel 1974 la cantante e attrice Jane Birkin indossa un bellissimo abito scuro in seta con piume di marabù. Eccentrica e dall’animo sovversivo abbina al bel vestito una maxi borsa modello cestino in paglia. Per la seconda serata invece sceglie un abito in stile anni ’20, ricamato con paillettes. Davvero bellissimi entrambi, ma quella borsa proprio no.

In 1974 the singer and actress Jane Birkin wore a beautiful dark silk dress with marabou feathers. Eccentric and with a subversive soul, it combines the beautiful dress with a large straw basket model bag. For the second evening he chooses a 1920s-style dress embroidered with sequins. Really beautiful both, but that bag just not.
