MILANO | SPRING SUMMER 2015 | DANIELA GREGIS
HUMANITÉ APPLIQUÉE

"A volte cerca un posto dove possa volgere il naso all’insù e vedere solo il colore blu; pensa che in quel momento vede lo stesso blu che vedono gli uccelli, lo stesso azzurro che avevano visto i trisavoli e che ancora si vedrà dopo di lei; in questo istante, Celeste dimentica tutto e…"

Daniela Gregis’s work cannot be reduced to a nostalgic recollection of blue that is forever lost. The "Celeste" Spring Summer 2015 is revealed by the skilled mixture of simple and complex shapes with a clear Japanese influence and many different cultural suggestions, taken from planet Earth that is made smaller by technology and by the speed of information. Daniela Gregis fashion ables to touch inner chords that are stifled by today’s frantic rhythms, outlining a sustainable future that might finally have a human dimension.

Top model and journalist, Benedetta Barzini, muse to Richard Avedon and Irving Penn, even though she came from a sophisticated background, being the daughter of heiress Giannalisa Feltrinelli and Italian journalist and author Luigi Barzini, Jr., still fight eloquently the idea that women represented “pleasure” and men represented “reason”. Being invited to model the meaning of clothes for Daniela Gregis, she remains loyal season after season, to a mutual way for both women of giving significance and making sense and being able to help others on their own paths. Those who see any difference between soul and body have neither ..

MILANO | SPRING SUMMER 2015 | ANDREA INCONTRI
PALAZZO TE PAJAMA PARTY

Claudette Colbert has had a pair of pajamas in red stripes that made sensation. Greta Garbo looked chic in pajama stripes. Sophia Loren looked sassy in pajamas stripes. Model Mary Jane Russell modeled them with a turban in Vogue in 1953. Obviously pajamas as outerwear look best at night and in silky fabrics. Classic style silk pajamas could be worn to host a party in Palazzo Te, fine example of the mannerist style of architecture in Mantova, the city of Andrea Incontri in his Spring Summer 2015 collection.

Andrea’s vision for a very smooth silhouette with a silky tunic pajamas was my favorite collection of day one in Milan for next summer. Lightness and essential forms were designed to be folded in order to transform an entire collection in a closet trip. A treat! Un coup de coeur !

In its brevity, this collection can almost be viewed as a kind of Renaissance elements of style, where style means courteous, delightful and pointed feminine sagacity.

Since joining Tod’s as menswear creative director last June, Andrea is thrusting in confidence. He is floating. A great feeling. His personal #SS15 confirmed taste and feel: the simplicity of the dry shapes hides complex constructions. Queen of the collection is the shirt: white & black polka dots on transparent pants or mini skirts embroidered with gems, short chemises flowery dresses and camisole. Stardust for the whole skirt and blouse knit sparkles brilliance for an everyday venerable Donna.

Looking to Leon Battista Alberti and Giulio Romano, Andrea Incontri embraces his roots from a rich history and craftsmanship.

Mantova matters.

MILANO | SPRING SUMMER 2015 | ANGELOS BRATIS
DRAPED EXPRESSIONISM

Greek designer’s ethereal collection etched into Yiannis Moralis’s bold rationalist abstraction.

Though Bratis’s work was very classical in one sense, very Minerva’s, he infused maestria, colors and forms all inspired by Yiannis Moralis, an outstanding figure in Modern Greek painting, one of “1930s generation” painters.

Aparté. With a scholarship from the Academy of Athens (1937), Yiannis Moralis studied mosaics and frescos in Rome. Angelos Bratis taught his passion for the “moulage” at the Akto Design School of Athens, the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan and the Academy of Fashion and Costume in Rome. Rome, gravitas for both.

Subsequently, Yiannis Moralis attended lessons on painting and fresco in Paris, at the École des Beaux Arts and on mosaics at the École des Arts et Métiers. He had presented his work in many solo and group exhibitions both in Greece and abroad, having had his first one-man show in Athens, 1959. Half a century later, Angelos Bratis curated several exhibitions on art, fashion and architecture.

From the 1970s, Yiannis Moralis moved from the realistic depictions of the human form of his earlier works towards a geometric stylization incorporating curves. From the 2010s, Angelos Bratis conveyed collections recognizable by the architectural fluidity of the design and its elegant and impeccable technique.

After graduating in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute Arnhem in Amsterdam, Bratis moved to Italy and began honing his talent through collaborations “behind the scenes” with great designers. In 2011 he won first prize “Who Is On Next?, ” Alta Roma and Vogue Italy’s talent search for emerging fashion designers, decided by a jury composed of Suzy Menkes of the International Herald Tribune, Franca Sozzani of Vogue Italia, Mark Holgate of Vogue, and retailers Saks Fifth Avenue and Harvey Nichols.
