Above are some selections from Givenchy’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection.
From the Architizer Website,
“Riccardo Tisci may design clothes for the quintessentially Parisian couture house Givenchy, but his collections never stray far from his Italian roots. For Givenchy’s pre-fall collection, Tisci turned to his fellow countryman Gio Ponti, the famed architect, industrial designer, and founder of Domus magazine. Tisci’s sleek silhouettes — straight pencil skirts worn over slacks, minimalist floor-length columns — recalled some of Ponti’s most iconic buildings, such as the Pirelli Tower and Taranto Cathedral, both in Milan, while his modernist patchwork dresses and blouses paid homage to the architect’s playful furniture and product design.

This sculpture reminded me of a one-man-band.

Marni presents a collection of 100 chairs made in Colombia by ex-prisoners. This Marni venture aims to reinforce the prisoners resettlement into social and working life. All chairs consist of metal structure and multi-colored PVC threads featured on the backs and armrests. A common seat in Colombian local families, re-interpreted by Marni who modified the woven pattern and created new color variations.
The chairs are linked to the “L’Arte del Ritratto” project through a photo exhibition created in collaboration with the photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice. His performances are based on works of categorization: the chairs are used as background for a series of portraits of Marni teams from different departments. “L’Arte del Ritratto” is an homage dedicated to them, destined to last in time, which is also accompanied by a video that reports the shooting experience.
A collage of some magazine clippings I’ve been accumulating. Alaia, Erdem, Lanvin, Valentino.
This is a drawing by artist Timothy Hull. He very generously gave this to me as a wedding gift. It has a very special meaning to me because this drawing is based on a postcard painting (see below) my mom and I bought on our last trip to Italy together before she passed away. I am getting it framed now and it will become part of a salon wall montage in my apartment. See Tim’s website for instructions on commissioning a piece.
