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.

ABOUT SILK SCARVES / LIMITED-EDITION

Their design is unique. They reproduce details of torn posters images captured around the world by Roberto Alborghetti , who says: “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).

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.

“SUNSET BURNISHED HILLS… FALLEN SOLDIERS WEEP”: HAIGA # 3 BY ~MEREDITH AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Sweet child,

pale

with

flu

limply resting against cool plaster.

Grandma’s Purple Quilt.

*

Sunset burnished hills.

Lavender Dusk settles in.

fallen soldiers weep.

*_* sigh.

*

Yin/yang poster world

grabbing blurs of yesterday.

Flowing thought bleeds ink.

This is the third composition created by fellow blogger, Meredith (healingminds@WordPress.com) for a four composition series titled “Dreams & Lacer/actions: Therapeutical Haiga”. Meredith – who lives in Lafayette, Indiana (USA) – shared a preview of my most recent images taken from torn posters and cities walls during my trips in the Netherlands and Italy. And, she began to create verses…

The third “Lacer/actions” art piece which inspired Meredith’s verses doesn’t come from torn posters. It is a sort of special preview about a new direction, or section or a new kind of images concerning my research of urban signs… I will talk about it very soon. I saw this “visual situation” in Milan. As all my pieces, it’s natural, realistic and not manipulated or enhanced image.

Meredith wrote this note about her verses and my art: 

I have very mixed feelings about them because they feel very transparent to me.  But, that is  art, and as I send this off I feel a sense of sending myself.  This picture touches me deeply, and I decided to not to use any other text than the haiku.”

I thank Meredith for this collaboration which is also a particular experimentation based on colors, images, words, thoughts, emotions and sensorial perception.

IT’S A VERY INDUSTRIAL PICTURE… SNOW, CLOUDS AND PEOPLE ALL SEEM TO DRIFT IN THE SAME DIRECTION

DREAMS & LACER/ACTIONS”: THERAPEUTIC HAIGA # 2 BY ~MEREDITH AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Faded faces stroll

     the walls of layered living.

    Yesterday softens.

*

I saw granite snow

     and touched the oneness.

     Ancient stories freeze.

*

Umbrella walkers

     dot the misty,morning streets.

     Tissue clouds bring snow.

This is the second composition created by fellow blogger, Meredith (healingminds@WordPress.com) for a four composition series titled “Dreams & Lacer/actions: Therapeutical Haiga”.

The second “Lacer/actions” art piece which inspired Meredith’s verses comes from a display I saw on a square at Como Lake (Italy). It is natural, and not manipulated or enhanced image.

Meredith wrote this note about the image: “This picture looked both very industrial and like a barren canyon in winter.  Both places may seem bleak but I see life.  Snow, clouds, and people all seem to drift in the same direction, whether moved by snow or racing, tissue clouds. I could not help but make a copy of this photo to run my fingers across as I listened to the whispered tales of mottled surfaces.” 

I thank Meredith for this collaboration which is also a particular experimentation based on colors, images, words, thoughts, emotions and sensorial perception.
