From foot to head
from Thursday, March 17th to Wednesday, April 20th 2016
GALLERIA ARTEPASSANTE STAZIONE PORTA VENEZIA Railway station Porta Venezia, Milano Entrance METRO corner Buenos Aires/Tunisia
curated by Cinzia Ruggeri, Aldo Lanzini and Luca Belotti.
The exhibition From foot to head originates in the course of Project Methodology of the MA Degree in Fashion and Textile Design NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano, Italy). The course inspiration has a root sprouting from Cinzia Ruggeri insight on the desire of everyone to “leave a trace, a sign, a message” Cinzia Ruggeri challenge her students to think of a possible footprint that encompasses the personality of their alter ego. These visions are materialised through the manual construction of the elements that constitute the identity: the footprint, the shoe, apparel and accessory. All elements are hand-made, using a methodology that favours intuition and a taste for storytelling. The exhibition reveals these quiet and poetic presences.

Coachella #dayone

Warm desert and cold beer?
Welcome back to Coachella.
The festival which defined (and is defining) most of the lifestyle trends of the past two years has already started with some special guests.  
My favourites for today?
AC/DC, Alesso, Azealia Banks, Lykke Li and Kiesza.
The perfect look to go there?
Saint Laurent, of course.

Eve La Plume

During these warm and hard days of Milan Design Week, there's only one thing that you can't miss.
And actually  I don't know if it's going to be hard or warm or both.
For sure I know that it will be absolutely bold.

Here I introduce you the:

Colomba Leddi

Petals, moss and roots. 
Rooster feathers and hens, stones gathered in the wood, carpets found in Uzbekistan, and her father’s painting from the ‘60s. 
And whatever she likes becomes something else, first, in her imagination.

L'hiver a Paris

It seems to be a very hot winter in Paris, this time.
Silk shirts, short dresses, ripped pantyhose and patched fur coats define the californian style of Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent.
A real club for heroine-chic muses.
Rich heroine-chic muses, of course.

The sophisticated and always elegant look of Raf Simons for Dior always brings to top the Paris level.
The dresses that all we want.
Actually, the ones that Raf wants.

Do you understand how many the paint boots are high?
Personally, I'm still trying.
Anyway, think I'm on the right way.

Savage beauty

Sometimes life doesn't allow to be flexible.
This time I've been late.
Twenty minutes late.
Anyway here we are with my illustrations for the Draw a Dot Savage beauty open call.
Inspired by the work of the unique Lee Alexander McQueen.
