Giant Bucket Hats: in fashion from Belle Époque to 2020

Giant Bucket Hats: in fashion from Belle Époque to 2020

Cappelli enormi, stravaganti, che agli albori dello scorso secolo facevano apparire le donne simili a colorati funghi e fiori eleganti. Questa tipologia di copricapo, dalla forma a grande casco rovesciato, ha ripreso linfa nel corso del ‘900 per tornare in auge durante questi ultimi anni. Pressoché disattesa la proposta di Louis Vuitton nella sua fall winter del 2012, il “Bucket Hat” è stato rielaborato da Marc Jacobs e Coach 1941 nella fw del 2017, per riapparire pressoché identico nella collezione Nina Ricci e Dior dell’autunno inverno 2019 – 2020. Ecco una mia accurata selezione per voi.

Giant, extravagant hats, which at the dawn of the last century made women look like colorful mushrooms and elegant flowers. This type of headgear, with a large inverted bucket shape, has taken on new life during the 1900s to come back into vogue during these last few years. Louis Vuitton’s proposal in his 2012 fall winter was almost completely dismissed, the “Bucket Hat” was reworked by Marc Jacobs and Coach 1941 in the fw of 2017, to reappear almost identical in the Nina Ricci and Dior collection of autumn winter 2019 – 2020 Here is an accurate selection I made for you.

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.

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.»

Divas of Fascist Cinema

Alida Valli Ghergo Luciano Lapadula blog moda storia attrici fascismo moda fashion history photography history blogger libro

Il volto scolpito nel marmo, uno sguardo insieme sensuale e spietato che allude all’erotismo più feroce di quei giorni bui. Le labbra violacee evidenziano un sorriso amaro, sprezzante, fiero del proprio sublime incanto. Sono le dive del cinema fascista, in un’Italia umiliata dalla guerra regnano sulle superfici dell’illusione per regalare un sogno a chi di illusione perisce.

The face sculpted in marble, a sensual and ruthless glance that alludes to the most ferocious eroticism of those dark days. The violet lips show a bitter, contemptuous smile, proud of its own sublime charm. They are the divas of Fascist cinema, in an Italy humiliated by war thay all reigns on the surfaces of illusion to give a dream to those who are diyng by illusion.

Galitzine: ascesa e declino della Principessa della Moda|Galitzine: Rise and Fall from a Princess of fashion

Irene galitzine vintage dress history photography fashion history blog blogger jumpsuit 60s 70s moda italy linea italiana isa stoppi diana ross 50s luciano lapadula

 

Era una principessa e si chiamava Irene Galitzine. Come in un favola visse in una dimora a soli 50 kilometri da Mosca, immersa nel verde e nel lusso, oltre 50 stanze, tappeti, vasellami, quadri preziosi. Suo padre amava andare a caccia nei boschi, seguito da staffette a cavallo pronte a servirgli champagne ghiacciato. Bei vestiti, feste, formazione di prim’ordine segnarono l’infanzia della giovane Irene, ormai adolescente. La Rivoluzione Russa incalzava, e la famiglia degli Zar sarebbe stata di lì a poco sterminata (look Here for more) . Come tutti i nobili del posto, anche i Galitzine fuggirono cercando rifugio in Europa. Irene andò a vivere in Italia, aveva 14 anni e tra gli studi come pittrice e quelli di diplomazia estera, prevalse il suo gusto innato e prepotente per la moda, per l’eleganza. Iniziò la sua carriera a Roma, insieme all’amica Simonetta Colonna di Cesarò, al tempo Fabiani, che nel ’46 presentò la sua prima collezione. Ai lavori come Public Relator dalle Sorelle Fontana seguirono i primi indipendenti passi nella sartoria, i suoi pigiami palazzo insieme agli abiti da sera divennero in breve tempo una divisa per le donne del jet-set internazionale. Nella rara immagine proveniente dal mio archivio, Jackie Kennedy, insieme a Irene, sfoggia un miniabito in shantung di seta al teatro “La Cometa” di Roma, era il 1968.

Solo pochi giorni dopo questo evento mondano tuttavia, il tribunale accolse i ricorsi di alcuni commercianti di tessuti che vantavano dei crediti dalla casa di moda per un totale di soli 4 milioni e mezzo di lire, certo, sempre più di 2250 euro odierni, ma pur sempre una cifra irrisoria per una stilista affermata come Galitzine. Eppure il curatore fallimentare, intemperante, concesse alla stilista di portare a termine solo gli abiti ordinati dalla regina Annamaria di Grecia, dopo di che la favola della principessa sarta e stilista venuta dalla Russia si interruppe. Indefessa però, l’elegante Galitzine non si dette per vinta e riuscì a riaprire la propria casa di moda solo due anni dopo. Il marchio oggi è ancora esistente e appartiene per lo più a un mercato di nicchia, ma questa è un’altra storia.

She was a princess and her name was Irene Galitzine. As in a fairytale lived in a house just 50 kilometers from Moscow, surrounded by greenery and luxury, over 50 rooms, carpets, precious paintings. His father, when he went hunting in the woods, was followed by riding stirrups ready to serve him chilled champagne. The Russian Revolution was pressing, and the family of the Tsar would soon be exterminated (look Here for more). Like all Russian nobility, the Galitzines also fled seeking refuge in Europe. At the age of 14, the young Irene wanted to be a painter, or to try her diplomatic career, but her innate and overbearing taste for fashion and elegance prevailed. He began his career in Rome, together with his friend Simonetta Colonna di Cesarò, at the time Fabiani, who in 1946 presented his first collection. Sisters Fontana followed the first independent steps in the tailor’s shop as her Public Relator, her palace pajamas along with evening dresses soon became a uniform for the women of the international jet-set. In the rare image from my archive, Jackie Kennedy, along with Irene, sports a silk shantung minidress at the “La Cometa” theater in Rome. Only a few days after this worldly event, however, the court upheld the appeals of some creditors – mostly textile merchants – who boasted of credits from the fashion house, for a total of only 4 and a half million, of course, more than 2250 euro today, but still a ridiculous figure for an established designer like Galitzine. yet the bankruptcy trustee did not want to feel right, granted the designer only to carry out the dresses ordered by Queen Annamaria of Greece, after which the fable of the princess, a seamstress and stylist who had come from Russia, broke off. Undaunted, however, the elegant Galitzine did not give up and managed to reopen her own fashion house only two years later. The brand today is still existing and belongs mostly to a niche market, but that’s another story.
