In conversation with Creative Director of Lardini, Luigi Lardini

Fashion We had a delight speaking with the Creative Director of Lardini, Luigi Lardini.     How are you staying creative during these weird times this year?   In these difficult times I keep creativity with the memories of the past. Sometimes a simple smell or a song on the radio is enough to take me back in time, reliving those wonderful moments.  Creativity is also kept alive by remembering perfectly the way we dressed once, or by finding some old drawings, photos from the past. My style office thus revisits old garments by updating them in models.  In addition, I observe a lot of the way women dress. I believe their way of dressing is fresh, updated and looks to the future. I take inspiration from their colors, fabrics and volumes of some garments.      What is the inspiration and story behind the new Fall & Winter collection?   We started to design the moodboard of the next AI21/22at the end of the first lockdown and this led us to reflect on something:the importance of some values related to the world and the beauty of nature that surrounds us,which gained more strengththanks to this forced stop. From this reflection it was easy to direct us to "Land ART", to this form of contemporary art that is expressed with the intervention of man in the territory of nature.This is the new mood of Fall Winter collection.      How are you as a brand following and embracing sustainability aspects?   We have been following the sustainability issue carefully for some seasons, inserting fabrics such as polyester from the recovery of plastic bottles or GRS certified recycled fabrics, combined with recycled accessories such as buttons and labels in the collection. Also for the women collection sustainability is essentialand we use the fake eco-friendly furs.As humans, we all have to contribute to make the world a better place. For the next SS22 we are confident to create our own “sustainable” total look capsule.     The selection of shirts for Autumn and Winter includes an introduction to a new “techno fabric”. Can you tell our readers more about it and the new fabric.   The introduction of a technical fabric in "formal shirts”has revolutionized the way they are used. Comfortable, light, anti-crease and breathable, it is a highly flexible fabric that adapts to every movement giving maximum comfort. To be worn even with the most formal of Lardini suits, the "techno fabric" has made it possible to give a valid alternative to classic cotton but adding the performance of an increasingly popular "casualwear".     How do you ensure that the furs  used in your designs are eco-friendly?   We have never liked to use fur of any kind, in replacement when necessary, we prefer to prepare collars or insides of the fur garments that derive from soft alpaca or camel yarns already used in knitwear.     When did you start your company Lardini and what made you establish a fashion brand? What is the story and ambition behind it?   Our 40th anniversary in the business has been a great achievement. In these years we have always tried to combine heritage and innovation.  The first me, with a passion for style and elegance, started out in the Seventies by creating a menswear collection. Mybrother andsisters, Andrea, Lorena and Annarita, joined forces with meand we opened a tailoring workshop, in 1978, which attracted some of the biggest names in the fashion industry.  The first Lardini menswear collection was launched in 1998, and it attracted the interest of the international markets in just a few years.  Ambition and the key of our success is the constant research of the fabrics innovation, passion and love for quality. There are many artisan phases to produce sophisticated details, and to create a garment. The combination of craftsmanship, creativity and sustainability are part of our made in Italy.  In the meantime, we prepared also the ground for the second generation, already an important part of our company, that allows us to face the future with new ideas, tools and modern skills.     As Lardini is a family business, how is it creating and working with your siblings?   With my brother and sisters it’s very simple, we grew up together. We created this company with courage and a lot of passion. For us there is no difference, the family is the company and the company is part of our big family. Within it we have our own well-defined and distinct roles as well as for the second generation, each of them have their own roles. Let’s try to be united. Always. Up to now we have been a great team.      Can you tell us more about the symbol of the company “lapel flower”. What made you decide to make it the symbol of Lardini?   Since I launched the brand, the greatest success has been the invention of the Lardini flower, a small identifying object for our brand… It has allowed growth in all markets even a few customers were buying more garments also for having the flower in different colors! The Lardini flower is a great sign of romance “there is nothing more romantic than bowing down in front of a woman, handing her the lapel flower”.     What do you have in store for 2021 and what are your creative plans for next year?   Our project plans for the next 2021, look towards a solid and constant creative process without ever stopping and looking to a better future. We will continue to work in research, also developing small capsule collections, the second edition of the “Luigi Lardini” capsule and the collaboration with the Japanese designer Yosuke Aizawa.While for the following SS22we are planning a total look capsule dedicated to the world of sustainability.     We had a delight speaking with the Creative Director of Lardini, Luigi Lardini.     How are you staying creative during these weird times this year?   In these difficult times I keep creativity with the memories of the past.

REDVALENTINO PRESENTS THEIR NEW COLLECTION FOR SPRING 2021

Fashion Nature and the city. A new sense of escapism emerges. A liberating desire of freedom takes center stage. As the frantic rhythm of the city slows down, Mother Nature reclaims its space. The quotidian life merges with the dream and nature ties the knot with beauty in the Red Valentino Spring 2021 collection. The Roman fashion house taps German artist Timo Helgert, known for his escapist virtual installations, to photograph the collection against digitally created backdrops fusing the urban landscape with the natural environment.   If the scenario evolves, the quintessential spirit of the RED Valentino remains the same: feminine yet audacious, elegant yet rebellious. The brand’s eclectic girls mix the high and the low. Their street attitude nds a balance with their spontaneous gentle sophistication. Dresses and separates, injected with delicate romanticism, are matched with urban outerwear pieces. Sweet embroideries of archival lilies of the valley pop up on both deconstructed faille frocks enriched with oversized bows and sleek skirt suits, as well as functional windbreakers. Jacquard trench coats, cocoon capes and knitted cardigans with an artisanal feel are punctuated by ribbons. Timeless gingham patterns are decorated with blooming owers on frocks cut in bold silhouettes, while the lightweight point d’esprit tulle skirts are worn with practical quilted outwear styles. Suggestive patterns of landscapes with an Oriental feel add an intriguing twist to uid dresses and oversized pajama sets with a relaxed edge. Denim gets a special treatment with Japanese pottery-inspired prints. In keeping with the eclectic spirit of the ready-to-wear lineup, the bag collection is a mix of functionality, urban and sporty touches, as well as feminine, romantic vibes. New styles include the “Knot Me Up!,” a nylon crossbody style decorated with a maxi knot; the “Minimaxi Chain” and “Minimaxi Scoubi,” showing a macro chain and a scooby doo knot handle; the “Rebel Bow” range, featuring a a clutch, a micro pouch and a hand bag showing soft maxi bows. The look is completed by versatile footwear styles, spanning from urban cool combat boots and sneakers with chunky soles to elegant kitten heel sandals.

Antony Micallef Presents His Latest Artwork At Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel

Antony Micallef Presents His Latest Artwork At Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel

Art Antony Micallef is known is described as a modern Expressionist, and he's widely recognized as one of the finest painters in contemporary art today, Micallef roots his work in social commentary and self-examination. Known for his visually charged figure paintings, Micallef's latest body of work, Constructing Auras is being shown at Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel, opening today.     We see a continuation of the artist’s last exhibition, entitled Raw Intent from 2016. Here, he built up a relief-like surface with heavy paint to depict a figurative mass in front of a muted background. Utilizing an impasto technique, the material is pushed to its extreme and blurs our reading of painting and sculpture. Through the use of tools such as scrapers and palette knives, Micallef twists the paint to further distort the depicted figure in the hope of realizing an embodiment that will "breathe" on its own.   “I want my forms to encompass a sense of life. This body of work is all about the materials used and the palpable essence of the material depicting a sense of being. All the things I was interested in and influenced by that I never thought I could incorporate into my art have amalgamated into this body of work like one big mixing pot." Antony Micallef   Evolving on from this, Constructing Auras, which consists of 14 works, highlights the close relationship between the creator and the object and the co-dependence between these two entities. There's a fusion of forms that manifested itself through the artist’s meticulous studies of forms from nature, drawing inferences from a wide range of disciplines from paleontology to couture textile, influenced by forms of nature, the early works of Alexander McQueen, as well as the V&A's Fashioned From Nature exhibition. This also brought about a new technique that saw Micallef apply layers of paint - much of which was recycled from the walls of his studio - as if they were a textile. The result? Compelling sculptural paintings that resonate with us all.     Constructing Auras, will run from 27 - 30 November 2020 at Hong Kong Spotlight by Art Basel.

SAMSØE SAMSØE LAUNCHES BLUE BELIEF 2.0

Fashion Blue Belief is Samsøe Samsøe’s conscious denim program which continues the push towards ensuring the best possible in sustainability matters, both in terms of production and material choices.     With its Pre-Spring 2021 collection, the brand is extending the core offering by including two new models. ’Elly’, thenew women’s style, is a slight nod to the 90’s and, with an excellent ‘mom’ , the brand is highlighting something that works well on all body types. Meanwhile ’Eddie’, the new men’s model, is the brand’s loosest t-shirt ever. Itreferences the 50’s straight legged, Marlon Brando-esque aesthetic, but with a modern twist, making it perfect for the new 20’s.     Blue Belief redefines the components used to make jeans, using only conscious cotton - either organic or entirely recycled - and trims such as naturally oxidized studs, nickel-free zips, recycled polyester threads and jacron plaster patches from sustainable sources. Equally important, Samsøe Samsøe’s denim nishing process has been relocated to an eco-friendly laundry that usescutting-edge technology to create virtually waterless washing by simply removing water from stone washes, and instead using ozone washing  with bubble technology. By combining multiple wet cycle processes, the water usage is signi cantly reduced — by up to 96% forthe Blue Belief program. Over and above this, Samsøe Samsøe is working with the non-pro t organization Charity:Water, which brings cleandrinking water to some of the poorest parts of the world. For every denim piece sold, Samsøe Samsøe will donate €1 to the charity with the goal of providing up to ve wells a year to impoverished communities in Rwanda and Malawi. In villages where young girls can spend up to ten hours a day fetching water, the impact of these improvedwater sources can be felt well beyond better health, extending into areas of gender equality and education.     Blue Belief is part of an ongoing commitment by Samsøe Samsøe to reduce its impact on the environment through sourcing more sustainable fabrics. By 2024, the brand’s ambition is to be 100% more sustainable. Already on a good path, the upcoming 2021 collections show respectively 42%, 51% & 68% more sustainable collections. The new campaign features a diverse cast of models and street-cast people in the Blue Belief 2.0. Lensed by Mariya Pepelanova with creative direction and styling by Mathilde Storm, the communication is simple and strong; bringingthe approach of community, camaraderie and inclusivity to life.

FENDI - Featuring Sarah Coleman

FENDI - Featuring Sarah Coleman

Accessories FENDI has commissioned the New York based artist Sarah Coleman to reinterpret the Miami Design District FENDI Boutique and create a series of one of a kind design pieces.     For almost a century FENDI has been committed to redefining luxury through the development of new materials and techniques.  From its foundation, and through Silvia Venturini Fendi’s vision today, the Roman Luxury House has been pushing traditional methodologies and handcraft in new directions.  Inspired by FENDI’s tradition of breaking down barriers of exclusivity and luxury, the artist felt empowered to invent and reimagine.  The result feels retro and classic but also entirely new, inspired by the spirit of the 1970s.     The concept created for Design Miami/ is centered around Coleman’s design ethos of repurposing and FENDI’s DNA.  The theme takes a literal approach at times, leveraging fabrics from FENDI’s handbags to reupholster furniture in bold mixed logo prints, or printing FENDI archival imagery onto vintage magazine paper to collage a chair.  The repurposing often applies in ways that are less physical and more metaphorical. FENDI’s iconic prints are warped and manipulated in FaceTune, an app usually used for Instagram editing, but instead used to create art.  FENDI’s iconic FF and Pequin logos are reinterpreted by Sarah with a vertigo effect. This printed design will appear on the façade of the FENDI Miami Boutique, as well as on a series of limited-edition Peekaboo handbags.     In collaboration with the artist, a special limited edition of 3 styles of FENDI’s iconic Peekaboo ISeeU bags designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi will launch exclusively at the FENDI Miami Design District Boutique in late November 2020.  The limited edition FENDI Artist Peekaboo will be available in an iconic FENDI yellow with FF embossed design, a white nappa leather with phosphorescent FF beads and embroidery for a glow in the dark effect, and in a canvas body with multicolor FF thread embroidery.     In addition, Sarah has reinterpreted a one of a kind piece of the Designer’s Peekaboo bag in white canvas, transforming it into a multicolored style in plaster and acrylic paint, with FFs cut from suede, glazed with resin. The bold colors of the piece are inspired by the vibrant arts scene in Miami, as well as whimsical toys from the artist’s childhood.     Following tradition and celebrating FENDI’s longstanding relationship with Design Miami/, the boutique will be dressed up for the occasion with a special façade in a concept created by the artist, with the vertigo Pequin FENDI logo in the iconic Maison’s yellow colour.   In addition to the iconic handbags, the artist has created a series of design pieces to be displayed in the Miami boutique during Design Miami/.  Reupholstery using vintage designer bags is one of the artist’s main mediums, which inspired a cushion reupholstered using coated canvas from 1980s FENDI beach bag.   Additional pieces include a vintage rattan peacock chair, refinished in yellow acrylic paint and plaster by the artist, and an acrylic zigzag chair, covered in collage of vintage books and magazines, printed with FENDI archival images, and mixed with warped prints designed by the artist.  This piece features layers of repurposing, from the vintage paper materials used, images drawn from the brand’s archive, and the distortion of iconic FENDI prints.     Inspired by visions of a distant future in which the value of objects can be judged only by their objective appearance, Coleman has created a series of mixed media artwork, made from layers of draped fabric, found objects, and deconstructed vintage FENDI bags. The collection celebrates an unexpectedness in vision and use of materials, a fitting expression of the creativity and innovation of FENDI.   FENDI has commissioned the New York based artist Sarah Coleman to reinterpret the Miami Design District FENDI Boutique and create a series of one of a kind design pieces.     For almost a century FENDI has been committed to redefining luxury through the development of new materials and techniques.  From its foundation, and through Silvia Venturini Fendi’s vision today, the Roman Luxury House has been pushing traditional methodologies and handcraft in new directions.  Inspired by FENDI’s tradition of breaking down barriers of exclusivity and luxury, the artist felt empowered to invent and reimagine.  The result feels retro and classic but also entirely new, inspired by the spirit of the 1970s.     The concept created for Design Miami/ is centered around Coleman’s design ethos of repurposing and FENDI’s DNA.  The theme takes a literal approach at times, leveraging fabrics from FENDI’s handbags to reupholster furniture in bold mixed logo prints, or printing FENDI archival imagery onto vintage magazine paper to collage a chair.  The repurposing often applies in ways that are less physical and more metaphorical.
