Engines and Mechanisms

I’ve been thinking.

We are now in the fashion weekz moment, right now is set in Milan ( and let me say, this is a a moment much better than the previous two, which has begun in a major way thanks to Alessandro Michele in Gucci) and I noticed how without being there fisically I was able to watch almost all the shows from my couch. Yes, fashion brands themselves stream the fashion show live on social medias – i?m writing this articles after the amazing Women’s and Men’s Fall/Winter 2017 show which opened with an amazing Eva Herzigova and a slight recall to 80′ and 90’s fashion.

Fashion, an elite by nature, is allowing to ANYONE to watch the runway from home. Also from the zooming of the camera I can notice many more details that people sitting in front rows are not able to see and I say this from personal experience. Than the main mechanism goes somewhere else perhaps. Being there, being seen, in the street fashion and fashion bloggers era  the important thing is to be there.I’d like to investigate more and more closely this phenomenon. I have to admit that I for one am more interested in the fashion aspect itself (clothes, accesories and so on) than this particular aspect although I can understand how the main interest in on it.

Anyways fashion is something in which everyone is interested. It captures and calls and screams, like mermaids that drowned sailors in order to satisfy their true nature.

Bottega Veneta

Sebbene io sia un grandissimo fan del brand,. devo dire che la collezione creata da Tomas Maier non mi ha fatto impazzire. Penso sia stata colpa di tutti quei volant.

Even though I’m a big fan of the brand, the collection created by Tomas Maier didn’t drive me crazy. I think it was all those ruffles’ fault.

STYLE LESSON No. 1

Ragazzi, maschietti, boys… Non temiate di esprimere voi stessi attraverso l’abbigliamento. Siate liberi e osate, con stile, ovviamente. A me, per esempio, piace la moda classica ma anche fantasiosa e poliedrica, tant’è che traggo moltissime idee dal mondo femminile. Un dettaglio di cui mi preme parlare è il denaro: non bisogna avere milioni per essere chic, bisogna avere gusto. Detto ciò, per ora, vi lascio con due foto autunnali, by Gucci e Bottega Veneta, da cui prendere ispirazione.

Guys, dudes, boys… Don’t be afraid to express yourself through your clothing. Be free and dare, with style of course. For instance, I like a classic style but with a bit of fantasy and mutation, in fact I borrow many ideas from the female world. A detail on which I’d like to put the attention is money: you don’t need to be millionaire to be chic, you just need to have taste. So, I leave you, for now, with two pictures by Gucci and Bottega Veneta to get inspiration from.
