BEAUTIFUL INSTALLATION AT PITROSE BEAUTY CONCEPT STORE (MILAN AREA, ITALY) SHOWING MY ARTISTIC SILK SCARVES CREATED WITH IMAGES OF TORN POSTERS…

Pitrose Beauty Concept Store ‘s owners had a beautiful idea. They created an installation showing my three silk scarves series now available in a very special limited edition. Pitrose Beauty Concept Store dedicated them an whole shop-window in the historical centre of Urgnano, Italy (Milan area). Silk fluxes are mashing up with outside autumn colors… Pietro and Rosy at Pitrose are very glad to welcome visitors with the gift of a booklet (Lacer/actions – Pictures of Torn (publi)City) and giving informations about artistic silk pieces displayed in the installation. They said that in the first days of the exhibition, people were really impressed about the show.       

The silk scarves design reproduces details of images concerning torn posters and urban “signs” I captured around the world. So, I had the way to turn “trash pictures” into an art subject (abstract scenes are also trasnferred on canvases, lithographic prints and other materials). The three silk scarves were produced with the assistance and collaboration of the internationally known textile designer Bruno Boggia, who works for the most famous international fashion stylists.

Blogger Marina Chetner (USA) wrote: “Roberto’s torn poster art inspired silk scarves are going to be the next big fashion trend… Personally, I think Roberto should set up a pop up shop for his works in Soho NYC, or even have them distributed in the Met Museum Shop”.

Artist and blogger Meredith Deerheart (USA) posted this article: “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”.

PREVIEW ON TEXTILE DESIGN TRENDS FOR FASHION 2014 / “THE RHYTHM OF THE SEASONS”

© Photos by Roberto Alborghetti

At Bruno Boggia Disegni Studio in Como – where has been created my special silk scarves from torn posters images  – eyes are already focused on the next 2013 and 2014 fashion seasons. Bruno and Lucia Boggia, with their collaborators, are working on the possible trends. Textile design usually anticipates dresses and accessories  patterns and often suggests shapes and solutions to fashion stylists. Also at Boggia Studio people raise high the “antennas” trying to be proactive.

I had the way to admire new fabric designs that Bruno Boggia is preparing for summer 2013 collections and for those of winter 2014. “The dominant trends seem to follow the rhythm of the seasons, their colors and their moods – Lucia Boggia says me -. So, warm colors for summer – yellow and green the prevailling ones – and reminding nature colors for winter. We are focusing on the colors of the natural environment, with an eye to the neutral ones we see in woods, fields and lands… In addition to the basic trends, we are working on geometry and floral subjects and on East flavours themes.”

This photo-gallery is a special preview of the amazing new textiles designs coming from Como (Italy). So, let’s dive in this extraordinary combination of colors and shapes. Bruno Boggia Disegni will participate to next Indigo Salon in Paris (September 19-21, 2012) and to forthcomings ComoCrea editions ( June 25-26 and October 29-30, 2012).

“GLAMOUROUS ACCESSORIES FROM WASTE-PAPER ON THE WALLS”: “IL PUNTO” WEEKLY MAGAZINE REPORTS ON ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI LACER/ACTIONS SILK SCARVES

 

The Italian Weekly Magazine “Il Punto”, in his last issue ( March 2, 2012) dedicates text and pic to Roberto Alborghetti ‘s Limited Edition Silk Scarves from his “Lacer/actions” Art Project  about images of torn posters and urban signs. The article – introduced by “Lacer/actions at your neck” headline – is edited by journalist Roberta Maresci for the Fashion section of the review.  

Roberta Maresci writes: “A silk scarf to remember the Fallen of Nine Eleven, although his most famous art images come from trash of the cities walls. Glamorous accessories are borning from waste dirty, ripped, torn and worn paper. It is called “Lacer/actions” the project by which Roberto Alborghetti turns trash into an art subject, or at least into an watchable product as a textile design. It’s an unique experimentation which has become reality thanks to Bruno Boggia who in his Studio in Como for over sixty years has been working on textiles design and with the most famous designers in the world (as Capucci, Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schön, Chanel, Celine, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Etro, Escada, Donna Karan Paul Smith, Rolando Santana).

LACER/AZIONI AL COLLO

Da “Il Punto” – Settimanale / 2 marzo 2012

Pagine Moda – A cura di Roberta Maresci

Una sciarpa in seta per non dimenticare i caduti dell’11 settembre. Anche se le sue più celebri sono ricavate dalle immagini dei muri-trash. Dai rifiuti di carta sporca, strappata, lacerata e usurata nascono accessori glamour. Si chiama Lacer/azioni il progetto di Roberto Alborghetti che trasforma il trash in un soggetto d’arte, o quantomeno in un prodotto guardabile: textile design. Una singolare sperimentazione diventata realtà grazie a Bruno Boggia che nel suo Studio di Como da oltre sessant’anni lavora con i tessuti e i più famosi stilisti del mondo (da Capucci a Lacroix, Valentino, Lancetti, Mila Schön, Chanel, Céline, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Etro, Escada, Donna Karan, Paul Smith e Rolando Santana).

 “Moda e Tendenze”, magazine de “L’Eco di Bergamo”, nel numero di dicembre 2011, in questi giorni nelle edicole, dedica attenzione al progetto “Lacer/azioni” di Roberto Alborghetti, focalizzando l’interesse sulle sciarpe di seta realizzate con le immagini dei manifesti pubblicitari strappati. “Moda e Tendenze” – che è curato da Fabiana Tinaglia – così scrive tra l’altro:La carta sporca, strappata, lacerata ed usurata della pubblicità affissa sui muri delle nostre città è ora diventata anche accessorio moda e, nello specifico, sciarpe in seta… Dopo essere diventati tele e litografie, e pure videoclips, gli artworks “Lacer/azioni” di Roberto Alborghetti si sono trasformati anche in seta grazie alla collaborazione di Bruno Boggia che da oltre sessant’anni lavora con i tessuti e collabora con le maison più famose del mondo, da Valentino a Chanel, da Dior a Ysl. “Lacer/azioni” è un progetto di Roberto Alborghetti, giornalista professionista, autore di saggi e biografie, fotografo. Da anni ha l’hobby di “catturare” in giro per il mondo particolari e dettagli dell’apparente caos della carta lacerata delle affissioni. Finora ha raccolto circa 30 mila immagini che, trasferite su tela e su tessuto, riprodotte su litografia o scansionate in un videoclip, assumono nuove forme espressive. E di moda”.
