In conversation with Creative Director of Lardini, Luigi Lardini

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.

In conversation with Taylor Zakhar Perez

Men Taylor Zakhar Perez was introduced to fans in Netflix's sequel ”The Kissing Booth 2” this summer as Marco, the most notable role of his career to date. Thanks to his singing and dancing skills, his social media exploded after the movie first came out. But acting is not all there is about him.       Taylor, you studied music theater before your acting career. How did your switch from theater to TV and film happen?   The natural progression of an actor/artist is working your way through different performance formats and learning about all the pieces of the puzzle...from stage to screen and even prop styling to producing.  To me, Los Angeles was the end goal and I was lucky enough to have a casting director refer me to a few acting studios to make the transition.      You have 7 siblings. What would you say is the most valuable thing you've learned growing up in such a big family?    First let me say that if you didn't grow up with brothers and sisters, you missed out. Even though they aggravate, antagonize and sometimes leave scars on your body, I wouldn't be who I am today without them. You learn patience, compassion and ultimately how to function in the world with all the personalities out there. I was lucky, my family prepared me for a lot of the curveballs in life and I developed a really good sense of humor.      Your background is of strong importance to you, it also impacted your major while studying. What made you so eager to study Spanish, Culture and Community?   College was a weird space, I had two majors, one minorand no friends. I took 25 units a quarter and my teachers thought I was a pain in the ass, but isn't everyone at that age? The outreach aspect intrigued me most on this particular major, I wanted to be of service in the underserved communities. I worked with an NGO that helped DREAMERS prep and apply to universities because it was sort of their only hope for success in higher education.      What is your goal you want to achieve in your acting career?   Just one? I have so many. My primary goal is to maintain my sense of selfand remember where I come from. That being said, I want to do everything from jumping out of helicopter action roles to pee your pants high-stakes comedies, but also diving into dark indie films that shed light on the unthinkable things that happen in this world. My goal is to be limitless; produce my own projects, bring my screenplays and ideas to life, and say yes to the right collaborations. So often we are forced to assimilate to what ”they” want us to be, but that's not me and it never will be.       When you auditioned for ”The Kissing Booth 2”, you didn't know what were you auditioning for. How did the role of Marco Pena change your life and what is the best thing about being part of this film?   Marco Peña sort of broke the internet when we premiered, it was madness. My Instagramgained millions of followers overnight and my face was everywhere. I am incredibly grateful for my costars that went through this a couple years back and they sort of helped me adapt to it. The best part of the whole experience has been the support from our director Vince Marcello, his attention to detail and specificity leveled me up as an artist and made set a safe place for us to be vulnerable. Also Joey, she just raised the bar and made me want to be better everyday.     How do you feel about your impending stardom status? Is it weird having so many fans all of a sudden following you on social media and trying to get in contact with you?   If fans text me, I'll hit them back. Sometimes I spend an hour just chatting with fans,getting to know them and get their take on life, love, whatever. Technology is cool, man. As for the “impending stardom” ... well, I think actualstardom is contingent on the next projects I choose. I can choose to be a one-trick pony or pivot into something more dramatic or action heavy. The choice is obvious and I'm all in.     You are very much into charitable work. What makes charity so important for you and do you support any specific charity organization or cause? Tell us more about about this part of your life.   My mom and dad come from humble beginnings and they've always made a point to tell us how privileged we were growing up. No joke, any time we were ungrateful,it turned into an hour lecture which ultimately turned into some kind of house/yard work.  I don't have one organization that I exclusively work with, but I have some family members with disabilities and I try to gear my outreach toward non-profits that support research or directly aid in a child's development (e.g. education, familial assistance, etc.);anything that can take the stress off of the working parents.      We know you love to travel, but this is heavily restricted at the moment. How did you spend your time during quarantine, besides riding your motorcycle?   Giving up traveling for a moment was tough, but it's for the greater good and I am all for that. I was able to finish a film I wrote, start working on another, collaborate with friends, get back on the piano and was able to take a step back and assess what my next move as an actor is. This “overnight” meteoric rise during a lockdown was like nothing I ever expected, but it allowed me to weigh the importance of everything in my life and have major clarity. Oh, and the dog, can't forget spending time with the dog.      You said you would love to produce your own projects, bring your ideas to life. You also just finished a film you wrote. How did your interest in production and screenplays spark? Tell us more about this finished project that you wrote.   I've been behind the scenes for many years working art department, bringing projects into production, casting and coordinating, etc. So for me, as I was pursuing a career in front of the camera,it only made sense to keep building my behind the camera knowledge as well. It also helped that I was at UCLA, which has a great TV & Film department, so I was able to take what I learned there and apply it to today. The screenplay I just finished follows a young man that has strayed so far away from his true north that it takes destruction, reconciliation and death to reset him and his place in the world.     It was announced we'll be seeing more of you and your friends next year in ”The Kissing Booth 3”. Obviously, you're team Marco. What can you tease for us about the third installment of the movie?   Are you trying to get me killed? This is some top-secret vault intel you are asking for. What I CAN tell you is that the third film will make you feel some type of way, it's an emotional satisfying  culmination of a coming of age story. As with many film franchises (with heart),the final one is always about what these characters have learned since the beginning of their journey and I think everyone will be empowered after watching it.    For the full story and editorial, get your copy at: https://www.boutiquemags.com   TEAM CREDITS: Talent: Taylor Zakhar Perez @taylorzakharperez  Photography: Erinn Springer @springerinn Casting / EIC: Timotej Letonja @timiletonja Styling: Jordan Boothe @jordanboothestudio @lmcworldwide  Production: Maria Zakhar  Grooming: Brandy Moreno Creative direction: Erinn Springer & Maria Zakhar Interview by: Jana Letonja @janaletonja Special thanks to Amita Malani and Andrea Braff at @viewpoint.pr  Taylor Zakhar Perez was introduced to fans in Netflix's sequel ”The Kissing Booth 2” this summer as Marco, the most notable role of his career to date.

Even though they aggravate, antagonize and sometimes leave scars on your body, I wouldn't be who I am today without them. You learn patience, compassion and ultimately how to function in the world with all the personalities out there. I was lucky, my family prepared me for a lot of the curveballs in life and I developed a really good sense of humor.      Your background is of strong importance to you, it also impacted your major while studying. What made you so eager to study Spanish, Culture and Community?   College was a weird space, I had two majors, one minorand no friends. I took 25 units a quarter and my teachers thought I was a pain in the ass, but isn't everyone at that age? The outreach aspect intrigued me most on this particular major, I wanted to be of service in the underserved communities. I worked with an NGO that helped DREAMERS prep and apply to universities because it was sort of their only hope for success in higher education.      What is your goal you want to achieve in your acting career?   Just one? I have so many. My primary goal is to maintain my sense of selfand remember where I come from. That being said, I want to do everything from jumping out of helicopter action roles to pee your pants high-stakes comedies, but also diving into dark indie films that shed light on the unthinkable things that happen in this world. My goal is to be limitless; produce my own projects, bring my screenplays and ideas to life, and say yes to the right collaborations. So often we are forced to assimilate to what ”they” want us to be, but that's not me and it never will be.       When you auditioned for ”The Kissing Booth 2”, you didn't know what were you auditioning for. How did the role of Marco Pena change your life and what is the best thing about being part of this film?   Marco Peña sort of broke the internet when we premiered, it was madness. My Instagramgained millions of followers overnight and my face was everywhere. I am incredibly grateful for my costars that went through this a couple years back and they sort of helped me adapt to it. The best part of the whole experience has been the support from our director Vince Marcello, his attention to detail and specificity leveled me up as an artist and made set a safe place for us to be vulnerable. Also Joey, she just raised the bar and made me want to be better everyday.     How do you feel about your impending stardom status? Is it weird having so many fans all of a sudden following you on social media and trying to get in contact with you?   If fans text me, I'll hit them back. Sometimes I spend an hour just chatting with fans,getting to know them and get their take on life, love, whatever. Technology is cool, man. As for the “impending stardom” ... well, I think actualstardom is contingent on the next projects I choose. I can choose to be a one-trick pony or pivot into something more dramatic or action heavy. The choice is obvious and I'm all in.     You are very much into charitable work. What makes charity so important for you and do you support any specific charity organization or cause? Tell us more about about this part of your life.   My mom and dad come from humble beginnings and they've always made a point to tell us how privileged we were growing up. No joke, any time we were ungrateful,it turned into an hour lecture which ultimately turned into some kind of house/yard work.  I don't have one organization that I exclusively work with, but I have some family members with disabilities and I try to gear my outreach toward non-profits that support research or directly aid in a child's development (e.g. education, familial assistance, etc.);anything that can take the stress off of the working parents.      We know you love to travel, but this is heavily restricted at the moment. How did you spend your time during quarantine, besides riding your motorcycle?   Giving up traveling for a moment was tough, but it's for the greater good and I am all for that. I was able to finish a film I wrote, start working on another, collaborate with friends, get back on the piano and was able to take a step back and assess what my next move as an actor is. This “overnight” meteoric rise during a lockdown was like nothing I ever expected, but it allowed me to weigh the importance of everything in my life and have major clarity. Oh, and the dog, can't forget spending time with the dog.      You said you would love to produce your own projects, bring your ideas to life. You also just finished a film you wrote. How did your interest in production and screenplays spark? Tell us more about this finished project that you wrote.   I've been behind the scenes for many years working art department, bringing projects into production, casting and coordinating, etc. So for me, as I was pursuing a career in front of the camera,it only made sense to keep building my behind the camera knowledge as well. It also helped that I was at UCLA, which has a great TV & Film department, so I was able to take what I learned there and apply it to today. The screenplay I just finished follows a young man that has strayed so far away from his true north that it takes destruction, reconciliation and death to reset him and his place in the world.     It was announced we'll be seeing more of you and your friends next year in ”The Kissing Booth 3”. Obviously, you're team Marco. What can you tease for us about the third installment of the movie?   Are you trying to get me killed? This is some top-secret vault intel you are asking for. What I CAN tell you is that the third film will make you feel some type of way, it's an emotional satisfying  culmination of a coming of age story. As with many film franchises (with heart),the final one is always about what these characters have learned since the beginning of their journey and I think everyone will be empowered after watching it.    For the full story and editorial, get your copy at: https://www.boutiquemags.com   TEAM CREDITS: Talent: Taylor Zakhar Perez @taylorzakharperez  Photography: Erinn Springer @springerinn Casting / EIC: Timotej Letonja @timiletonja Styling: Jordan Boothe @jordanboothestudio @lmcworldwide  Production: Maria Zakhar  Grooming: Brandy Moreno Creative direction: Erinn Springer & Maria Zakhar Interview by: Jana Letonja @janaletonja Special thanks to Amita Malani and Andrea Braff at @viewpoint.pr
