LAURA BIAGIOTTI Spring/Summer 2018

Laura

 

The dress tells a story, it witnesses and evokes: feelings, dreams, memories, roots, future. Continuity and metamorphosis.
A project rather than an object. A suggestion in order to escape from an ephemeral compulsivity and from a certain kind of fashion, which burns and consumes everything over the course of a season.
The dress is a “value” in every sense. The evolution of our personal wardrobe becomes a dressing/investing duality, which combines ethics and aesthetics.

Forever Roma. All roads lead to Rome. The 2018 Spring/Summer Biagiotti collection takes us back to the GRAND TOUR; the Journey through Italy (superbly narrated by Goethe and other great authors) that the luckiest of youth used to embark on in order to broaden their cultural baggage. A journey, which was also for girls just as long as they were accompanied by their mother or by a providential unmarried aunt. All this is achieved through prints by Carlo Labruzzi, the great eighteenth century roman landscape painter (this year celebrates the two-hundredth anniversary since his death) whose collection is preserved in the Vatican.

On linen tunics, iconic “Bambola” dresses with frilled chiffons, structured suits with jackets and broad trousers, voluminous trench-coats and even on must-have t-shirts, we witness the appearance of prints and designs of the most suggestive venues of the Eternal City. Especially the via Appia: a sort of period “reportage”, which traces back to that real and metaphorical journey that is life; one, which sometimes needs to be exorcised, as suggested by the fantastic masks of the facades of roman churches and buildings.

Roma’s Aura. Eventually, the long travelling finds its rest in the presence of the unique light of roman sunsets, captured by the new “rosa roma” color in the mini sequin or lace dress, which steers towards a shade of red brick, mixed with the thousand shades of a sky that has seduced millions of lovers. All this is a romantic yet contemporary love story interpreted by Laura Biagiotti’s iconic fragrance ROMA, an international best seller launched in 1988.

Metallic flashes define the accessories: necklaces and bracelets have the same precious stones; onyx, quartzes, left unrefined and natural and which also appear on bags and sandals making them unique, collection objects. The lights of crystals from Swarovski brighten up the tulle, worn in layers charged with reflections. Biagiotti’s white tells the story of hyper-feminine, romantic and voluminous dresses.

Postcards. A dress to read. While the prints assemble and break down on silk, taffetas and chiffon like an ancient/current graphic novel, the traveler shows up with a postcard. Images, which tell the story of the evolution of eras and places: it may be the famous aviator, Amelia Mary Earhart known as Lady Lindy, woman of sport, courage, freedom and adventure, a legend, which disappeared in the Pacific in 1937. But also of the many anonymous, tormented goodbyes: ciao mamma…

VIVETTA Spring/Summer 2018

01 Kopie

 

Between history and legend, Andrey Remnev has inspired the 2018 Vivetta Spring-Summer collection.

Vivetta Ponti transfers his art onto the catwalk: his ancient, melancholic strokes, yet graphical and modern, his colours and the delicate and dream-like women, the main characters of his paintings.

 

02 Kopie

 

These noble, hypnotic ladies, suspended in a surreal atmosphere, emphasise his passion for detail and, more specifically, for embroidery. Vivetta’s dresses, just like canvases, portray a marvellous, enchanted universe, with a wealth of magical elements. A desecrating tribute to both the world of contemporary art and the Russian artist.

 

07 Kopie

 

A collage of refined hand-made decorations. Sophisticated sequin macramé and evanescent profiles. Dazzling Swarovski and pearl appliques. Precious brocades as well as bright, multi-coloured Haute Couture duchesses.

Remnev’s favourite motifs are directly transferred onto the dresses. Irises bloom on the fabrics, crossed by the featherweight flights of dragonflies, butterflies and swallows. In addition to these, there are also elements taken from the underwater and woodland world. In the eternal surreal interplay of transformism, nature overcomes the real dimension: fantastic animals such as fish and winged creatures blossom in splendid flowers.

 

09 Kopie

 

Skirts that are as light as clouds and volumes emphasised by puffy crinolines. Cascades of raw edged tulle. Transparencies and micromesh lace. The crystal-studded organza is gradually blurred with delicate, lightweight feathers. The lightness of these fabrics is contrasted with those of a sturdier nature. The bustier dress is rather striking with its exaggerated volumes in denim which is treated, woven and dyed by hand.

 

12 Kopie

 

The common thread linking these two inspirational worlds, which are only apparently poles apart, is actually jeans, that co-exist in this collection. Revisited, faded and embroidered denim with bands of coloured feathers is used also for the footwear: for a true total look. There is a clear reference to a typically-90s POP underground style in terms of fit, volumes and prints. Oversized garments and hyper-feminine outfits. Organza, fil coupé brocade and jacquard cotton that recall romantic tapestries.

 

15 Kopie

 

The little tassels that enrich them have also been taken from the world of furnishing and design.
Maxi T-shirts are worn over 1960-style mini-dresses adorned with minute, sparkling sequins. Flaming, acid-coloured embroideries with sporty elements also for dresses in silk satin. The emerald green dress, with a deep side split, matching feather train and boa is a real key piece.

 

21 Kopie

 

The cut and paste effect is ensured by the styling: a top recalling a baseball T-shirt, with contrasting lace on its sleeves and a red carpet-worthy skirt. Also the black dress, with its decorated white satin bodice, that in terms of cut and silhouette perfectly complies with the design codes of this mood, has been created by wearing a short T-shirt over a tulle skirt. The elements of decor which Remnev was so fond of, can be seen once again in the prints, on shirts and short dresses, that have been re-elaborated according to a decidedly more contemporary taste.

 

22 Kopie

 

The range of colours is amazing. The light, dusty hues of the purest dawns from soft blue to baby pink, clash with the unique fluo colours and plenty of gold, a clear reference to the precious pigments blended by hand and used by the artist himself, as in the past.
Accessories: high cuissard boots and bow mules, either glittered or in bright pastel colours. Delicate “profiled” ballerina shoes in clashing hues.

Margot Robbie joins the Richard Mille Family

Richard Mille is delighted to welcome Australian actress Margot Robbie to the circle of women who are partners of the brand. She is an inspiration to the current generation and the brand looks forward to creating a fascinating range of watches.

 

Margot_richardMille

 

Born in Australia, Robbie grew up on the Gold Coast and eventually moved to Melbourne where she began acting professionally at the age of 17. She appeared on Neighbors, Australia’s longest-running television serial, from 2008-2010. In 2011, Robbie moved to the United States to pursue her career and was quickly cast in the critically-acclaimed series, Pan Am.

Robbie is perhaps best known for her breakout role in Martin Scorsese’s 2013 hit, The Wolf of Wall Street, in which she stars as the female lead opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. Her star-making performance in the film garnered praise from critics and audiences alike.

The Wolf of Wall Street paved the way for interesting and unique opportunities for Robbie including starring opposite Will Smith in Focus, a lead role in sci-fi thriller Z for Zachariah, starring as “Jane” in David Yates’ The Legend of Tarzan, as well as her coveted role as the iconic “Harley Quinn” in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

Robbie can be seen next in Simon Curtis’ Goodbye Christopher Robin alongside Domhnall Gleeson.
She recently wrapped production on Craig Gillespie’s I, Tonya, which she stars in as Tonya Harding, and served as a producer under her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. Robbie will soon begin production on Josie Rourke’s Mary Queen of Scots in which she will star as “Queen Elizabeth” opposite Saoirse Ronan.

Not content to limit her involvement in film and television to acting, Margot launched her production company, LuckyChap Entertainment. Robbie currently has several films in development under the production banner including Bad Monkeys, Beautiful Things and Marian.

This partnership between Margot Robbie and Richard Mille complements the very contemporary spirit of the collection in which Margot will bring her creative energy and her own interpretation of femininity as she participates in the design of several models.    
”I am really excited to join the Richard Mille family, I have always admired the brand’s artistry and innovation. The watch we are working on embodies Richard Mille’s vision of horology; it’s beautiful, unique and modern. I can’t wait for everyone to see it.”

Richard Mille and Margot will create together a collection of which the proceeds will be donated to Youngcare. This foundation is committed to helping young Aussies with high-care needs live life with choice, independence and dignity.

Collaborating with an array of artists and masters in their disciplines allows Richard Mille to enrich its vision of what a masterpiece of watchmaking for the 21st century should look like, without losing sight of tradition and history.
