Revolution to the Great Ballet

Tutu hidden under their coats, gloves ending in a stole, trench coats that turn into scarves. And men on the catwalk. A collection which refounded the Haute Couture of this century.

Jean Paul Gaultier is the heir of the great Haute Couture is no longer even news. That every time manages to amaze with its parades, either. This time he gave even more, though. This time for his Gaultier Paris (so called its line of Couture) Gaultier has exceeded the unexpected.

We start from the collection. An inspiration from Grand Ballet, a ballet Excelsior, with sunk in Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes and Georges Balanchine and trains up to Rudolf Nureyev and Ludmilla Tcherina, he has served only to give his ideas a form understandable to most. The shape of the tutu short, for example. This is, of tulle under the man’s jacket and trouser suit-fitted of Prince Siegfried, the feathers under the long skirt of her suit Dancers and also even on baschine elongated jackets and knitted scarf draped in a suit. Just as for the long tutus: is entrechats, a gown with rows of black chantilly red fox and mink brown. But this is what might be called a didactic approach.

Gaultier turns away from the Ballet Blanc (one made with tutus) and ventures in the salles de repetition, with references to the suits and leg warmers, and in fact they invented the stole that while end-gloves covering the arm stretch in a stole fourreau draped bustier or a black velvet wrapped a scarf embroidered with coiled jais (called the full Fantôme de l’Opera; Gaultier from each dress has a purely invented). And so you start to tell the story of the ballet costumes for the diDiaghilev choreography of Nijinsky and the gyrations of Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn, the spirals of steps and the mazurka and the Grand Ecarts Révérence.

A collection that contains the constant revolutions made by Yves Saint Laurent Couture, Gaultier’s true master, and that brings the discussion to the need for a vigorous intervention of creative freedom, at least in Haute Couture fashion can give back to the power of interpretation of real game of hyperbole mixed with imaginative people, playing with fabric, scissors, needle and thread, imagine a future certainly more humanly bearable than what you imagine in the closed rooms of the boards.

Even so, the presence of man on the catwalk is not just a joke (see article in the fashion blog). There is every reason why the man who parades through the Gaultier Haute Couture has the same disruptive effect of the decision to abolish the corset Jacques Fath hard for women, hermes crocodile birkin the intuition of Coco Chanel suits to make the jersey and the revolution Saint Laurent’s Nude Look and tuxedo for women.

Good Trip

Now one hundred years the name of the Greyhound, founded in 1911. And they celebrated with a parade, a party and a performance by Martin Creed at the Castello Sforzesco

When birthdays are important, important celebrations are organized. Trussardi is a historic brand of Made in Italy. Gloves, bags, luggage and all that goes under the name of leather with the symbol of the Greyhound, Italian houses are in a century. Since 1911, indeed, the year of the foundation to Bergamo. The brand is then arrived at the fashion in the early eighties, thanks to the tenacity and vision of the Nicola Trussardi that active and intelligent man, not only has added clothing to leather goods but has tried to create the Italian fashion system that , in those years, was forming itself as an alternative to the system of French fashion.

Nicola Trussardi, first to think that fashion should involve the city to become an integral part not only of business but of the culture of Milan, while thinking that the dress would work as a driving force for the product of his company’s core business, has never Forgot both tradition and technological innovation, combining style and research of new materials in a non-confrontational. That’s why this centenary celebration takes on a meaning for the entrepreneur that he never wanted to call fashion designer who died prematurely in 1999, leaving the company of which he had taken the reins in 1970 in the hands of his wife and children.

With this show for Spring / Summer 2012, then, Trussardi celebrations reach their peak, so that seems consistent choice to parade and celebrate in the center of the Milanese, the Castello Sforzesco transformed into a venue to pull in a space parties and in an environment for the sound performance of the English, who won the Turner Prize, Martin Creed.

Umit Benan Sahi, head of the designer to create Trusardi house, for its part has a fashion collection for a woman’s frequent flyer, always traveling, always ready to move into a lounge lounge with handbag and travel bag. And perhaps for this reason, her clothing is too practical, hermes bags made of pants and jackets that rarely leave the memory in the viewer. Convincing, however, the luggage: Trussardi came directly from the archives on the catwalk the stunning white perforated leather suitcases, those two-tone red with leather belts, the tassel of white. And then you can say bon voyage.
