Vogue Experience – A talk with Aquilano.Rimondi

Milan fashion week for a blogger means attending to fashion shows, presentations, parties, exhibitions, but also conferences or meetings with the protagonists of this world. Thanks to the last Vogue Experience held in conjunction with the Milan fashion week in September, finally I had the opportunity to meet the designer duo Aquilano.Rimondi.

Dolce and Gabbana – A story of Art, Fashion and Mysticism

The dichotomous relationship between Art and Fashion is one of the hot topics which always heats the fashion lovers. In one side there are the intransigent ones who can’t tolerate even the proximity of the two words, on the other hand there are those who want to “elevate” Fashion to the Art status.
We can surely consider Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana among the fashion designers who periodically rekindle this sort of debate: their collections are an interesting hybrid between costume, high-fashion, street-style and artistic masterpieces. From season to season they leave the fashion journalists speechless: everybody is charmed by their prints inspired to the stereotypical Sicilian folk traditions, declined on hieratic tailored dresses. Every show is a surprise and each theme is interpreted in multiple ways with ubiquitous references to figurative art.

In the last three or four years, fashion made us dreaming with clothes and accessories studded with Swarovski crystals, feathers, gold leaves, pvc scales or covered with colorful kaleidoscopic prints. Taking a look at the old collections and accessories I discovered that wood inspired several niche and research brands.
