Fellow blogger Renato Aquino – from Portugal (Ourem) – is a successful Senior Operations Manager, Catering Manager and skilled hospitality professional. Through LinkedIn profiles he had the way to see my artistic silk scarves. He was really struck by the unusual design and he acquired the all series of three doing some special gifts. The parcel was delivered  taking more of the time required. Some days ago, Renato sent me this message: “The scarves  arrived… Anyway, it was worth the waiting. The scarves are simply beautiful and very elegant, my gifts were very special and well appreciated!!!”.

I thank Renato Aquino for his kind appreciation and warm words! The three silk scarves (created for a special limited-edition series)   reproduce details of images concerning torn and decomposed publicity posters, natural cracks and scratches, urban and industrial “signs” I captured around the world. The three silk scarves were made with the precious collaboration of the internationally known textile designer Bruno Boggia, who works in Como (Italy) for the most famous international fashion stylists. So, I had the way to turn “trash pictures” into an art subject (my abstract works from the real world are also transferred on canvases, lithographic prints, aluminium and other materials).

“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.

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).

VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD

  

THANKS MARINA CHETNER!

Marina Chetner at http://marinachetner.com/ has honored my Blog by nominating it for the Versatile Blogger Award. I thank Marina so much, for her appreciation and for her kindness! I knew Marina on WordPress and through her precious posts about travels, art, architecture and urban landscapes where today are hidden creativity signs. She shared my “Lacer/actions” artworks (torn posters images) and supporting my ideas and projects.

She wrote for my nomination: “For artistic inspiration from Italia, Roberto Alborghetti is always as interesting read. Roberto’s torn poster art inspired silk scarves are going to be the next big fashion trend”. Thanks again Marina, for having built this creativity bridge between New York and Italy!

 THE RULES

These are the rules for the Versatile Blog Awards:

1 – Nominate 15 fellow bloggers.

2 – Inform the bloggers of their nomination.

3 – Share 7 random things about yourself.

4- Thank the blogger who nominated you.

5 – Add the Versatile Blog Award picture on your blog post.

 

 

SEVEN RANDOM THINGS

 

1 – I love to be inspired by reality or to associate it to my artworks. In fact, my art is based on realistic images and on what I see on ads billboards and on city walls.

 

2 – The physics principles say that in nature nothing is created, nothing is destroyed. “Nothing is created” because each invented reality comes from a pre-existing fact; and “nothing is destroyed” because a reality defined as “destroyed” or “consumed” it is actually “re-created” or converted in a whole new identity. That’s the life metaphor. That’s my art language too.

 

3 – Feelings, for me, have colors. I agree with the writer Wolfgang Goethe when he says that human beings “ feel great pleasure in seeing the colors, they need colors just as the light.” I think that colors tell stories, suggest moods, rise emotions, light up sensorial perception (synàisthesis).

 

4 – I like admiring lacerated posters. There remain only paper shreds, images traces on which you can’t read anything, meaningless residues to be thrown in the incinerator… The paper is ripped, cut, pierced. It absorbs, receives and turns. The de-composition and de-structuring stages are forced by dust, rain, traffic, wind, sunbeams… The whole city seems to act and to press on ripped paper, which twists and alters, as an urban mutation.

 

5 – Maybe it’s difficult to think that behind faded and torn posters there may still be “something” to be seen or discovered. But in torn ads is recognizable the torn city, the “unwrapped ”city , self-destroying in the messages, self-regenerating and self-reproducing in new visual elements, often contradictory, dissonant, discordant, but still surprisingly vital.

6 – I begun my art activity as a game, pushed by friends who were struck by my images, always mistaken for paintings… Apart from the happyness to be part of shows, to be on radio and tv, to have a good press coverage, to collect views and contacts, I think that the most important achievement is the energy to keep always open wide my perception doors, establishin’ relationships with people who desire share my project development.

 

7 – It’s a wonderful motivation to realize how boundless is the field where we may work for a culture in which art (and heart) and creativity make our life and world better.
