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

Beading: astonishing Make-Up from 1920s


beading makeup trucco history 20s smokey eyes make up historian fashion blog blogger luciano lapadula anni 20 moda storico storia the fashionable lampoon

Questo testo è tratto dal mio libro: “Il Macabro e il Grottesco nella Moda e nel Costume”. Racconto di una particolare moda del trucco durante gli anni ’20. I volti si fecero bianchi, con gli occhi cerchiati di nero e sottolineati da sottili e depilate sopracciglia dalle estremità tendenti verso il basso. Dalle ragazze russe fu importta la moda del beading: piccole sfere di cera erano fissate alle estremità delle ciglia.

This text is taken from my book. The Macabre and the Grotesque in Fashion and in Costume. I wrote of a particularweird make-up fashion during the 1920s. The faces turned white, with their black-rimmed eyes underlined by thin, shapeless eyebrows with down-tending ends. The beading fashion was imported from Russian girls: small wax balls were attached to the ends of the eyelashes.

Storia del Rossetto | History of Lipstick

Rosso come la passione, come il sangue, come il fuoco. Quella del rossetto è una storia che nasce lontano nel tempo, solca i secoli e giunge a noi inalterata nella propria prerogativa estetica: dar colore alle labbra. storia del rossetto history lipstick vision 3.0 magazine luciano lapadula lampoon modaCome in una favola, circa nel 2800 a.C. una bellissima regina sumera di nome Shubad, scelse di essere sepolta insieme a una scatola d’oro che conteneva una più preziosa polvere di colore rosso: pigmento che una volta mischiato con olio di sesamo ed essenza di rosa, era utilizzato per tingere le sue labbra. nefertiti rossetto busto lipstick storia makeup luciano lapadula moda arte cinema poesia sesso

Il popolo dell’Antico Egitto, ossessionato dalla ricerca della perfezione estetica, fece largo uso del rossetto e donne simbolo del potere come Cleopatra lo utilizzarono per apparire ancor più seducenti. La regina Nefertiti, il cui nome proviene dalla parola “Nefer” ossia bellezza, usava una pasta cosmetica ricavata dalla macerazione di coleotteri e formiche.  Il busto che la ritrae, esposto a Berlino accenna un sorriso valorizzato da un color rosso opaco, a quelle labbra carnose il marchio Louboutin ha tributato una linea di lipstick pochi anni fa. antica roma busto makeupNella Roma Antica poi il “Purpurissum” era ricavato dal solfato di mercurio per essere applicato anche sulle labbra delle statue sacre, venerate dal pubblico durante le processioni. Proibito nel Medio Evo in quanto associato al demonio e alla Vanitas, il rossetto conobbe un revival nell’epoca barocca.makeup history lipstick libro macabro grottesco sesso luciano lapadula moda La Francia di Maria Antonietta lo chiamò Rouge de Theatre, perché utilizzato per lo più durante le rappresentazioni sceniche. Fu in tal modo che il suo utilizzo iniziò a diffondersi lentamente tra le donne. Roger & Gallet crearono un primo stick da labbra intorno al 1910 ed Elizabeth Arden ne ideò e diffuse in commercio differenti nuances. elizabeth arden 20s lipstck rossetto storia filippo moda latorre marinettiParrebbe inverosimile, ma le suffragette ne fecero largo consumo per ostentare la propria identità di donna in una società estremamente maschilista; iconico e glossy nei Ruggenti anni ’20 conobbe mode diverse a seconda delle decadi. Ridisegnò le labbra nella forma di un cuore in quel decennio, per trasformale in un sorriso triste durante gli anni del secondo conflitto bellico. rouge dior 1953 rossetto lipstick teatro moda costume libro storia luciano lapadula immagine fashion glamour eleganza 50sChristian Dior nel 1953 lanciò il suo storico “Rouge Dior” che contribuì a conferire eleganza al sorriso delle donne. Marilyn Monroe ne fece un’arma di seduzione abbinandolo al neo della bellezza mentre Grace Kelly preferì toni assai più delicati. Opaco e quasi bianco durante gli anni ’60, tornò scintillante nei successivi anni della Disco. chanel lipstick makeup history storia del trucco rossettoToni fluo e accesi, ma anche gotici, furono quelli alla moda negli anni ’80, segnati da tendenze underground. Più naturale e opaco, virante al color mattone fu quello che imperversò nell’ultimo decennio del secolo breve.
La stilista Coco Chanel un giorno disse: “Se siete tristi, se avete un problema d’amore, indossate un rossetto rosso e attaccate”. Così oggi questo cosmetico continua a lasciare pericolose tracce di passione sulle camicie di tanti innamorati.

Red like passion, like blood, like fire. Lipstick history was born far in time, plows the centuries and comes to us unaltered in its own aesthetic prerogative: to give color to the lips. As in a fairytale, around 2800 BC a beautiful Sumerian queen named Shubad chose to be buried along with a gold box containing a more precious red powder: pigment that when mixed with sesame oil and rose essence, was used to dye her lips .

The people of Ancient Egypt, obsessed with the pursuit of aesthetic perfection, made extensive use of lipstick and women who symbolized power as Cleopatra used it to look even more seductive. Queen Nefertiti, whose name comes from the word “Nefer” or beauty, used a cosmetic paste derived from the maceration of beetles and ants. The bust that shows her, exhibited in Berlin, mentions a smile enhanced by an opaque red color, to those full lips the brand Louboutin has given a lipstick line a few years ago. In Ancient Rome then the “Purpurissum” was obtained from the mercury sulfate to be applied also on the lips of the sacred statues, venerated by the public during the processions. Prohibited in the Middle Ages as associated with the devil and Vanitas, the lipstick experienced a revival in the Baroque era. Marie Antoinette’s France called it Rouge de Theater, because it was mostly used during stage performances. It was in this way that its use began to spread slowly among women. Roger & Gallet created a first lipstick around 1910 and Elizabeth Arden invented and diffused different shades on the market. It would seem far-fetched, but the suffragettes made it widely used to show off their identity as women in an extremely male-dominated society; iconic and glossy in the Roaring ’20s knew different fads depending on the decades. He redesigned his lips in the shape of a heart in that decade, to turn them into a sad smile during the years of the second war. In 1953 Christian Dior launched his historical “Rouge Dior” which contributed to give elegance to the smile of women. Marilyn Monroe made it a weapon of seduction, combining it with the beauty of her beauty while Grace Kelly preferred much more delicate tones. Opaque and almost white during the ’60s, he returned sparkling in the following years of the Disco. Fluorescent and bright tones, but also gothic, were the fashionable ones in the ’80s, marked by underground trends. More natural and opaque, turning to brick color was the one that raged in the last decade of the short century.
The designer Coco Chanel one day said: “If you are sad, if you have a love problem, wear a red lipstick and attack”. So today this cosmetic continues to leave dangerous traces of passion on the shirts of so many lovers.
