FASHION EXHIBITION

PHOTOGRAPHER MICHAEL STABILE  

We get the news from the Italian press agency. Art and fashion,  a  combination  that I love because it links two extremes of creativity and beauty that spring from the human mind. The artistic context on which the Italian photographer refers is linked to a very congenial period for me. The prints illustrate the Optical Art linked to the movements of Kinetic Art, born in the 60s.

 

Michael Stabile is a fashion photographer, specialized in Fashion Advertising Photography. He uses the images as a channel of communication: Michael Stabile presented during Alta Roma the FASHION EXHIBITION – PHOTOGRAPHER MICHAEL STABILE. The event was included in the official calendar of Alta Roma section In Town, edition of JUNE 2018.

FASHION EXHIBITION is a calendar embracing a Photography’s exhibition on tour, produced by the Photographer Michael Stabile, who exhibits on canvas a concept of advertising campaigns designed and created by him for several “Maison de Haute Couture”. The opening of the exhibition was on June 27th in one of the most prestigious locations: Aleph Rome Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton. The exhibition runs until July 1st 2018 and will host an audience that will be able to enjoy the works.

The Exhibition concept, “Optical Art Fashion” shown prints on 70/100 canvas, conceived and realized by Michael Stabile, at the Aleph Rome Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton. The prints are illustrating the “Optical Art” which is closely linked to the movements of the “Kinetic Art” that was originating around the sixties and that was evolving the examination and the study of the two-dimensional illusion.

The “OPTICAL ART FASHION EXHIBITION” works, presented in the exhibition, conceived and realized in the pose room by Michael Stabile in December 2016. The Photographer used as backdrop, the original fabric from which the dress derives and he physically placed the model in a geometric line to offer the viewer a unique work presenting two dimensions. The result is an impression of movement and of hidden image. The work becomes a “unique example produced in Haute Couture”. The eyes of Michael Stabile, are revealing his character while enclosing the perception that is appearing in his photography. The feeling is that all entirely depends on one point of view, as it happens in life.

To conclude the opening event, all guests, national and international press have been invited to a happy hour on the beautiful terrace of the Aleph Rome Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton.

THE 94th EDITION OF PITTI UOMO

Posted on Updated on

The 94th Edition of Pitti Uomo, the international men’s fashion event which dictated the trends of the Spring-Summer 2019 season, has just come to an end. The opening ceremony, in the Salone dei Cinquecento at Palazzo Vecchio, saw the first official involvement of new Minister of Cultural Heritage and Tourism Alberto Bonisoli, who reiterated the importance of fashion for Italian culture and Florence. 1240 brands, of which 561 foreign (45% of the total), and over 20,000 buyers took part to the event. Important numbers, which define, even more so, the reputation and progress of this international trade fair.

The theme of this edition was P:O:P: Pitti Optical Power, a visual and virtual celebration of colour, with endless games of stripes throughout the square of the Fortress and in every stand, a colourful world that focused on young people, start-ups and emerging industries. Great attention was paid to avant-garde styles and cutting-edge designers, without forgetting the excellence of the new classic companies and the brands that revisit the modernity of sportswear.

THE FOULARD SUMMER ACCESSORY

Posted on Updated on

 

There is a hair accessory that Pinterest loves in a particular way: the scarf. And you will immediately have eyes in your heart, because for the warm season it seems the complement of which your locks need. It gives you a chic but casual air, you can manage it as you prefer, turning it into a hair band, a bandana or a bow for your ponytail. Or if you love braids, it will be the “lock” to fit between the others.

The scarf is versatile, and, depending on your imagination, you can combine it with any style. There is only one small problem, but with our advice you can easily get around it. The fabric of which it is made, like silk, often tends to slip easily, especially if you have long, thin hair. If this is your problem, apply styling products that thicken and create more friction to keep your accessory in place.

To give you further push, know that since 2018 the designers have re-fallen in love and on the catwalks, from Dolce & Gabbana to Armani, have brought him back into fashion, creating an afro, hippy look inspired by the ’50s mood. And for the stars too, it has been a must-have ever-present beauty. What are you waiting for to experience it too? Here are some ideas to understand how to bring it and adapt it to your spring summer style.
