LUCA GIANNOLA

"My story is linked to the places and people who inspired it.

The workshop of my aunts, milliners in Benevento and stylists as early as the 1930s for ladies' hats, is where I grew up and experienced elegance and refinement. Here I knew how to answer the question usually asked to children: what do you want to be when you grow up? The answer has not changed over the years.

In Milan, I studied fashion design and began my journey in the fashion world. First as an assistant stylist and then coordinating three fashion creation centres and designing for several stylists at the same time.

But it was in Bologna that my style took shape. Collaborating with a strong, eclectic character, a singer and songwriter, well known as a couturier for wedding dresses, the first ‘moulage’ works were born. The dress, created and modelled directly on the model's body, becomes a sculpted garment.

The student sculptor, who had been dormant since art school and had been crushed by the rhythms and frenzy of Milan, was reawakened. The clothes sculpted on mannequins, sometimes prepared with padding to recreate the customers' measurements, become “prêt à couture” garments, where quality is central and the rhythm is that of artistic and artisanal creation.

I am a bit of a stylist, a bit of a sculptor, a bit of a creator, a bit of a modeller and a bit of a craftsman. I feel free to create what gratifies me.

For this shooting I present my Sculpture Collection IX. A project inspired by the silhouette of the 50s made of full skirts, tighter shapes all made of impalpable chiffon, shantung  and the ever-present taffetà. My concept of women is always to be feminine but absolutely comfortable and to have comfort when wearing my clothes, in every moment of one's life".

 

 

ANTONIO DEI ROSSI

Antonio dei Rossi - designer of glass, jewellery and the ultimate master glassmaker of figurative murrina - in this collaboration with Luca Giannola's clothes wanted to present some jewellery from one of his collections from the 1990s.

Vintage jewellery that still reflects the designer's signature minimalist style; tough in their geometry, they are warrior jewellery, gentle weapons of strength and femininity.

Worn by metropolitan warriors in sinuous, fluid dresses, silks skilfully treated in the complexity of the finish, but at the same time they do not deprive themselves of the determination of the jewelled weapon.

Large alpaca ‘Disks’ are the earrings matched to the black pleated organza dress where the play of full and empty spaces alludes to deliberate lacerations with a post-atomic appearance.

‘Circles’ the necklace also in alpaca on the impalpable silk tunic with moulage embossing on the sleeves.

‘Zigzag’ the bracelet that enhances the hard geometry, on the dress with precious sinuosities, a moulage constructed by amplifying the fluidity of the silk enriched by elaborations of plissé treated into swirls virtuously modelled on the body.

Once again contrasts, visual oxymorons of absolute contemporaneity.
