Soundtrack

Innovation comes from the past, and the future recognizes tradition. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli‘s stylistic approach to the Valentino menswear collection expresses a fusion of contrasts. Due to its authenticity and sartorial spirit, Florence is the setting for this line.

Designend as a new element used in the construction of an ideal wardrobe, the Spring/Summer 2013 collection is edgy and energizing. The mental landscape is the same: archetypical menswear. Perspectives and tools for interpretation have evolved.

By smoothly blending styles and solutions, pragmatic items – from the field jacket and trench coat to the parker and denim trucker jacket – are restyled, morphing sports and Couture. Its DNA is manipulated from within. Techniques are combined to create new textures, and lightness find structure.

The silhouette is distinct: more volume al the back creates a cool Couture look. Here, more is more: a combination of several materials, textures and colors defines the garments. Opaque layering and rubberized intaglio details create camouflage patterns on the trench coat.

The skinny jacket with drop sleeve is a geometric collection of heat-bonded and intarsia elements. The back of the parka is covered with constructive details. The contrast of weight and lightness is used to an advantage: padding and fiber become functional elements or disappear inside bonded fabric. Sleek, spare design creates shapes with wonderful pure lines: plain pea coats, white shirts with the basic look of a polo shirts, and sleek, clean suits. Knitwear has a compact texture.

Crisp materials such as natté nylon, wool/silk barathea, wool/nylon blends, dry cotton, Japanese denim, leather and treated linen – balance luxury and performance. The color palette is pragmatic, but it also breaks out of the mold: masculine army green, camel, blue, black, gray and ivory are accented with splashes of rust, red, and acid green.

The search for edginess can also be found in accessories such as sleek camouflage laced shoes and running shoes made of a combination of different materials.

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have a clear and concise fashion perspective: changing the structure and therefore the use of a garment is the sartorial equivalent of liquid modernity.

STEFANO RICCI SPRING SUMMER 2013 MEN’S COLLECTION – UFFIZI GALLERY – PITTI IMMAGINE UOMO

A meaningful and emotional fashion was presented in Florence on the 18th of June 2012.
The first to be held in the Uffizi Gallery. A tribute to elegance and to the Florentine Heritage, strongly desired by the designer Stefano Ricci.

“On behalf of my family, I would like to extend my gratitude to the Superintendence for the effective collaboration of the last few weeks, for the availability since the very first steps of this dream turning into reality” said Stefano Ricci on the eve of the premiere fashion show opening the Pitti Immage Uomo.

The presentation of the new collection was inspired by the themes of great literature, from the pages of Francis Scott Fitzgerald to the atmospheres evoked by Ernest Hemingway. In addition to Stefano Ricci‘s passions, the true sartorial elegance of the 100% Made-in-Italy production and the Great Mother Africa.

Without any doubt, the most touching moment was the presence of eight Maasai warriors who flew from Tanzania to express their gratitude to Stefano Ricci‘s family which has been involved for many years in projects to protect the Maasailand region.

For this reason, the head of the community of Olorash in the area of Monduli near Arusha (Tanzania) wanted a delegation of his people, who never flew out from their territory, to be present at the event.

This is a special tribute to Stefano Ricci, who was appointed as Chief of the Maasai community in Simanjiro in 1999. African colors and atmospheres have characterized the creations by Stefano Ricci for forty years.

The runway, under the direction of Romeo Conte, showcased the items of the new high-fashion menswear collection by Stefano Ricci: double-breasted jackets, fine cashmere-silk, soft crocodile leather jackets and vests, denim and luxurious sport-bags, silk sportswear outfits.

It is important to mention the women’s walk-out wearing black silk trousers and shirts holding a limited edition of crocodile bags with accessories in gold and diamonds, together with crocodile belts embellished by jewels, and precious cufflinks (the specifics of the walks-out are available on the photo book of the fashion show).

Noteworthy is the hand-made production and the fact that next September Stefano Ricci will inaugurate a new production centre where sewing machines will be banned.
