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).

“HATS BETWEEN ART AND EXTRAVAGANCE”: IN FLORENCE THE FIRST MONOGRAPHIC SHOW WITH ITEMS BY FAMED FASHION HOUSES

The Galleria del Costume (Palazzo Pitti, Florence; from December 3, 2013 to  May 18, 2014) opens its doors to an accessory not destined to pass unnoticed. This will be the first monographic show dedicated to hats.  The Museum’s collections of this accessory, attributable to the generosity of many donors, amount to more than one thousand items usually kept in storage.  Only a part of these will be exhibited. Most of items on show are by famed fashion houses including Christian Dior, Givenchy, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, John Rocha, and Gianfranco Ferré.  There will also be a substantial number of items by celebrated international milliners of the present and past, such as Philip Treacy, Stephen Jones, Caroline Reboux, Claude Saint-Cyr and Paulette.  Finally, this will also be the first show to exhibit creations by Italian and Florentine milliners, some of them all but unknown.

The hat thus becomes a ‘work’ of art with its aesthetic harmony consisting in its ‘sculptural’ conformation, chromatic component and ornamental elegance. Superintendent for the Polo Museale Fiorentino, Cristina Acidini writes:  «This exhibition turns its attention to the changeable and subjective hat, the hat as a “work of art”, the hat as an “object of design” of the XX century and of the third millennium.» 

Director of the Galleria del Costume di Palazzo Pitti, Caterina Chiarelli stresses that hats can be studied from the historical-artistic viewpoint or they can be interpreted under the purely aesthetic profile, taking the liberty to formulate judgments or to express oneself using all-inclusive adjectives like “nice”, “imaginative”, “fantastic” and “fun”. The element of play prevails over the educational purpose in this exhibition and this is the message we want to launch and that Katia Sanchioni writes about.

The exhibition presents important loans from Cecilia Matteucci Lavarini, a private collector of haute couture and an illustrious donor of the Galleria del Costume, which are characterised for their value, taste and style.  This is also the opportunity to exhibit the extraordinary sketches MaestroAlberto Lattuada has created especially for the show, as well as to draw attention to the specimens created by Clemente Cartoni, famous Roman milliner in the 1950s and 60s.

The exhibition promoters are:  Ministero dei beni e delle attività culturali e del turismo, Direzione Regionale per i Beni Culturali e Paesaggistici della Toscana, Soprintendenza Speciale per il Patrimonio Storico, Artistico ed Etnoantropologico e per il Polo Museale della città di Firenze, Galleria del Costume di Palazzo Pitti, Firenze Musei. The show also benefits from the contributions of the Consortium Il Cappello di Firenze (Angiolo Frasconi, bettina®-Raffaello Bettini, Luca della Lama produced and distributed  by Facopel Produzione, Grevi, Corti by Cleò, Marzi Cappelli Firenze, Nanà Firenze by MazzantiPiume, Luigi & Guido Tesi, Soprattutto… Cappelli, Trendintex, Memar, Fratelli Reali & C spa, Santelli Francesca, Inverni Firenze 1892, Michelagnoli Giuseppe & Figli, Ambuchi e Bandinelli).  The show will exhibit some of the most characteristic specimens by the major Tuscan firms of the hat-making sector, heirs of the old artisanal production of the Straw Hat of Florence. The catalogue published by Sillabe contains historical-scientific profiles by Simona Fulceri and texts by Katia Sanchioni, Aurora Fiorentini, Dora Liscia Bemporad, and Nicola Squicciarino.

CAN AN ARTISTIC SILK SCARF CHANGE OUR MOOD? PLEASE, READ THIS ANSWER…

“I TWIRLED AROUND WITH IT AND FELT LIKE I HAD RAINBOW WINGS…” 

LACER/ACTIONS – SILK SCARF – BY ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

I’m very glad to publish the beautiful comments I received from fellow blogger Meredith –http://healingminds.wordpress.com/ –  about  the LIMITED-EDITION of 3 SILK SCARVES (I created for my “Lacer/actions Art  Project”) now on sale at “LA BOTTEGA DI OSCAR / OSCAR’S BOUTIQUE”.

*

I received the scarf last night and took it outside to see all the hues and texture woven in gossamer.  I twirled around with it and felt like I had rainbow wings.  The transparency makes it look multi-dimensional… like floating colored glass.  I am rich, rich, rich! in color and texture today.

I have a black cashmere dinner dress (long), and I pulled it out to make a long silhouette, then went outside and let the breeze blow the scarf lightly around the still blackness of my form.  The outfit looks so elegant, now, I will wear it to Chicago to celebrate by birthday.  I truly feel like the most beautiful woman in the world… The pictures of the did not captures the extraordinary,  sheer luminosity of the silk, so in the the scarf is more stunning than I even imagined.  I think it is is a wonderful, extra surprise.

I love it!  I love it!

On my birthday, though, I will feel like the most elegant, beautiful woman in the theater wearing my scarf, and letting it flutter in the breeze as I walk.

These are such beautiful, dimension scarves no camera can do justice to the gossamer effect of the silk refracted by translucent color… and when I dance with it and explore its movement through space, the scarf looks like fluid, translucent stained glass.

  Honestly, if you want to impress a woman who’s wild about original fashion pieces, this a perfect gift… and a bargain.  There’s a lot of crap on the market that all looks the same, and is more expensive. I love this scarf, and so does everyone who see me wear it.

Beauty grows.  Never stop discovering, Roberto.  You have greatness pouring from every part of you.

ITALIAN TRANSLATION

UNA SCIARPA DI SETA SBALORDITIVA… COME UN ONDEGGIANTE VETRO COLORATO”

Ho ricevuto la scorsa sera la sciarpa e l’ho portata fuori alla luce per vederne tutte le tonalità e texture tessute in una ragnatela. Volteggiavo con essa e mi sentivo come se avessi ali di arcobaleno. La trasparenza la faceva apparire multidimensionale… come ondeggiante vetro colorato.  Sono ricca, ricca, ricca! Nel colore e nella texture.

Ho un abito da sera di cashmere nero, e l’ho indossato perché rendeva la silhouette slanciata, sono uscita e ho lasciato che il vento gonfiasse leggermente la sciarpa attorno alla mia figura buia e immobile. L’abito sembra così elegante ora, lo indosserò a Chicago per festeggiare il mio compleanno. Mi sento davvero come se fossi la donna più bella del mondo… Le immagini della sciarpa non rendevano la straordinaria, pura luminosità della seta: dal vivo la sciarpa è ancora più sbalorditiva di come l’avevo immaginata. Penso che sia una meravigliosa sorpresa extra.

La amo! La amo!

Il giorno del mio compleanno mi sento come se fossi la donna più bella ed elegante del teatro, indossando la sciarpa e lasciandola fluttuare nella brezza mentre cammino. Sono sciarpe così belle che nessuna macchina fotografica può  rendere giustizia all’effetto, simile a quello di una ragnatela, della seta rifratta dal colore traslucido… e quando ballo con essa e ammiro il suo movimento nello spazio, la sciarpa sembra una fluida, traslucida vetrata a colori.

Onestamente, se si vuole fare colpo su una donna che va matta per i pezzi di moda originali, questo é un regalo perfetto… E un affare. Ci sono tantissime schifezze sul mercato e tutto sembra essere uguale e più costoso. Adoro questa sciarpa, e lo fa chiunque mi vede indossarla.

La bellezza cresce. Non smettere mai di scoprire, Roberto! La grandezza fuoriesce da ogni parte di te.
