The beauty of chaos by Alessandro Michele for the Gucci FW 2016 collection opened the Milan Fashion Week. And for a year now, from the debut, his unusual style according to which “everything changes but nothing really changes”, has become a successful trademark that fascinates both the press and the market.
Antonio Marras is the perfect embodiment of what I call “poet-designer”.
He is one of the few visionary characters who lives fashion and everything that goes around it, as a means of expression of his cultural identity. I think that due to this reason his invitation and press-kit are the most wanted objects of desire of the Milan Fashion Week; they are like small art works in which he explains his point of view, through images and words inviting the reader to discover a different world.
After the success of the film “The Last Emperor”, in which Matt Tyrnauer celebrated the withdrawal from the catwalks of Mr. Valentino Garavani in 2008, the fashion documentary has become a trendy movie genre worldwide, thanks to which also lay people can access the secrets of the most famous fashion designers. The long list of “filmed designers” includes Karl Lagerfeld, Yohji Yamamoto, Yves Saint Laurent, Donatella Versace and Frida Giannini, and from today we can add also Raf Simons thanks to Frédéric Tcheng‘s film “Dior and I“, which I had the pleasure to see at the Italian premiere during the 55th edition of the Festival dei Popoli in Florence.
