What amazes me about Giovanni is his incredible quest for perfection in cuts, volume and his sculptural approach to his clothes that makes them architectural.
The overlapping of fine fabrics now technical, details which characterize, contaminate and give new life to a classic that strikes us at first glance.
One reads his poetry!
Soft, sensuous, romantic … feminine, yet so modern and cosmopolitan that the thought brings me to the greatest of great couturiers like Alaia.
An emotionally interesting experience!
Giovanni is pure talent, he won the National Chamber of Italian Fashion award with the men’s collection “On Stage 2010″, but not only, because at the same time he was inserted into VOGUE Talents with the women’s collection.
The amazing eighteenth century- inspired bustier and wide-sleeved silk shirts remind us of courts from the past … all so retro, all so ultra-modern.
I think that the alchemy created by Giovanni Grillotti, is held in the clear choice of taking references from past couture cuts, drapes, revisiting them and reinventing the fit of his clothes (which become very slim) and at the same time integrating them into a visionary and fascinating future.
A woman beautifully dressed in petals and colored in
yellow-billed duck, golden rod, sandy brown, intense blue, tan.
Beautiful and whimsical as a “Sterlizia” … a strong and beautiful woman… like a Japanese warrior with her armor!
I really like the SS 2011 capsule collection by Giovanni Grillotti!
Especially because he dreamed of a woman …as a real woman!

What ties a luxury maison to a Sicilian city?
This is what I asked myself when I attended the Hermès party…
Maybe the colors, the sights, the lights of Palermo’s markets which are similar to a suk, comparable to the colors of the famous Hermès foulard?
Perhaps the creativity, crafts, or beauty …?
Friday, at the GAM (Galleria d’Arte Moderna) in Palermo, Hermès introduced “Favolosa Palermo”, a book of photographs by a Palermitan photographer Pucci Scafidi, and published by Silvana Editoriale.
Shots of places, looks, buildings, gardens, courtyards. Surely what has remained good about Palermo. A Sicilian mood strongly rooted in tradition but deeply aimed towards the future.
Even for Hermès!
A charming tradition linked to icons such as Grace Kelly who dictate style even now, and precious materials, luxury understated and never extreme.
Hermès + Palermo?
All so charming … all so contemporary!

Looking at the photos of CAMO’S Fall/Winter 2010 collection … I begin to hear sounds of accordians and wind instruments in my head! A Balkan mood seizes me!
Clowns, trapeze artists, acrobats, a circus tent that seems stolen from other times.. now past. All so surprisingly ironic!
CAMO like camouflage … camouflaged among people, places, and the soul.
A collection of trousers, shirts, sweaters, coats … feelings!
An outfit by the citizen of the world … contemporary and cosmopolitan.
Tokyo, Berlin, New York, a station in the province of Piedmont …
I like CAMO because wearing and reassembling and its items more as you wish, you can be different every time. One day you can be a banker, a day laborer, a staring artist or simply yourself.
Discover the circus of CAMO…It will amaze you!
