Valentino des Ateliers
«Fashion is linked to the body and to movement. Art, however, is completely free from constraint». Valentino Des Ateliers, Pierpaolo Piccioli’s global celebration of contemporary art, includes 82 looks for 22 of which the designer collaborated with 17 international artists, mainly painters. From the colors he has chosen for his creations, to the patterns reminiscent of color touches on canvas, these “living” works of art were shown at Venice’s Gaggiandre of the Arsenale complex where the Venice Biennale is also hosted, and set to the sounds of Cosima.
Fendi Couture Autumn – Winter 2021
Kim Jones presents the Autumn – Winter 2021 collection as a poetic transfiguration of the past within the present day. Captured in an emotive film by Call Me by Your Name director Luca Guadagnino, it featured an array of supermodels such as Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, and Amber Valletta, gazing enigmatically into the camera as they waft around a Roman theater set in dresses evocative of the stone and statues of the Eternal City. Max Richter’s score just adds to the mesmerizing feel.
