SILK, STARS AND SCARVES / TEXTILE DESIGNS FROM DECOMPOSED PUBLICITY POSTERS…

This is a “festive gallery” for the limited-edition series of 3 silk scarves created by Roberto Alborghetti, for his “Lacer/actions Art  Project”

Their design is… unique. They reproduce details of torn posters images and “urban signs” I captured around the world. I accepted the challenge that italian textiles designer Bruno Boggia offered me. Bruno, with the invaluable assistance of his daughter Lucia and his staff, helped me selecting  artworks to be converted into silk scarves designs.

Bruno Boggia Studio works with the most famous designers and fashion brands in the world (Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schon, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Y.S.L., Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith, Rolando Santana…) So, the images of dirty and ripped papers – left to decompose on  city walls or billboards – after being transformed in canvases, lithographs and videoclip, are now artistic and original silk scarves (100 % Crepe de Chine).
