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.

Ready to Wear from Thierry Mugler ss 1992.

If the concept of “Ready to Wear” approaches “Ready Made”, to the surreal, to the world of art in its many facets. Thierry Mugler spring summer 1992. Supermodels Niki Taylor, Yasmeen Ghauri and Naomi Campbell. The three amazing and different types of beauties of the supermodels create a unique aesthetic picture of its kind. Unrepeatable today. Iconic moments for a style that ironizes on the past, on the present and on the future…on fashion, on the wearability of a dress, on its opulent aesthetics.

An Actress, a Prince, a car crash

«Nell’estate del 1931 il principe più bello d’Europa, Umberto II di Savoia, fu oggetto di scandalose cronache che raccontavano di un presunto idillio tra il giovane, che si era sposato solo diciotto mesi prima, e la bellissima attrice hollywoodiana Jeanette MacDonald, giunta in Riviera per una vacanza. Il giorno in cui si sarebbe dovuta separare da Umberto, lei era seduta in macchina e lui era alla guida, l’automobile slittò sull’asfalto bagnato facendo sbalzare fuori dall’abitacolo i due. Il volto dell’attrice ne rimase sfigurato, per ricucirle il cuoio capelluto i chirurghi dovettero raderle la bionda chioma. Disperata Jeanette si fece aiutare dal banchiere Maurice Garfunkel che la affidò ai migliori specialisti di New York. La diva sfigurata fu restituita prontamente a Hollywood grazie a un abile intervento di chirurgia plastica.»

«In the summer of 1931 the most beautiful prince of Europe, Umberto II of Savoy, was the object of scandalous chronicles that told of an alleged idyll between the young man, who had married only eighteen months before, and the beautiful Hollywood actress Jeanette MacDonald, come to the Riviera for holydays. The day she was supposed to leave Umberto, she was sitting in the car and he was driving, the car skidded on the wet asphalt, knocking the two out of the cockpit. The actress’s face was disfigured, and to round her scalp the surgeons had to shave her blonde hair. Desperate, Jeanette was helped by the banker Maurice Garfunkel who entrusted her to the best specialists in New York. The disfigured diva was promptly returned to Hollywood thanks to a skilful plastic surgery.»

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.

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.
