Mood Board of Beatrice Brandini for Fall – Winter 2018 -19

New appointment with MilanoUnica, preview on the trends of the season Autumn – Winter 2018/19. Beautiful! As always suggestive location, this time the nice appendix of the Technical and Technology Museum of Milan, the Cavallerizze. But, most importantly, the substance, which is the theme exhibition (Cinema) and the presence of materials, workmanship, materials, accessories, really UNIQUE!

The inspiration this time came from the cinema, a true art form (I have repeatedly talked about over the years in my blog, especially for the inspiration and influence that has always exercised in fashion). The film inspires us, evokes a memory, celebrates a moment; it makes us dream, laugh, cry, think, simply put excites us. The music is also characterized by this spell, but compared to the movies, it is limited by the lack of images. The pictures and their fundamental importance, images become aesthetic and here through four themes, are the inspiration for creating beautiful artifacts.

The first theme was “Sorrentino directs Dynasty” The eighties with their shameless opulence, with an idea of beauty that chasing perfection and the idea of eternal youth. Power, money, intrigue …, whether to direct the Texan family saga was today our skilled Paolo Sorrentino, would become a modern soap, in which the human tragedy, even in the sense of theatricality, Italian spirit, “misery and nobility”, would become bitter irony.

MATERIALS: Jacquard with emossed print; Gold fil coupé with fringe inlays; Tousled bouclé padding; Fluid jerseu with metallic overlay; Jersey fluid with mectallic overlay; Tecno satin double face; Jacquard knit with gold cooting; Fur-effect embossed pattern; Jacquard knit woth gold coating; Stones mix for decorative effects; Sequins, Glitter; Zip with refined taping.

The second theme was “Tarantino directs The Little Buddha”. The journey and the traveler, life as an adventure, discovering new worlds, new cultures, habits … self-discovery. Bertolucci made this poetic journey, Tarantino would distort it, making it more extreme and somewhat ‘”Pulp”.

MATERIALS: Wool cloth with organic print; Mohair, alpaca melange; Breathable nylon lining on large woven knit; Laser-cut fur and suede; Shade of color on fur; Embossed embroidery on felted jersey; Three-dimensional like brushed and embroidered jacquard; fur with wool and felt trimming and jacquard ribbons; Harnesses with cordura bands, cords, hooks ans snap-hooks.

The third theme was “Stanley Kubrick directs Sherlock”. The classic English character Sherlock revisited and reinterpreted from the intellectual, eclectic, shocking Kubrick. The style, the elegance, the English tradition, with the addition of a touch of madness.

MATERIALS: Masculine patterning on jacket and coat; Cupro and Tencel for fluid mascuine drappy; Princeof Wales lined with super soft fabrics; techno check with knickerbocker; Layer-printed super soft wool cloth lined; Denm-like brushe drill with leather trimmings; zip with macro grosgrain striped proders; printed labels in platisc and latex; buttons in leather and metal on striped border; Buttons with regimental designs;

The last theme was “Pedro Almodóvar directs Victor Victoria”. Memorable Blake Edwards’ 1982 film. If it were today Almodóvar to direct the result would be even more hilarious. Misconceptions, disguises, humor … and maybe (it would be nice!), an open discussion about why label the humanity in a gender concept. The theme of course mixes genres, male and female merge, creating an apparent chaos of contrasts, even in tissues.

MATERIALS: fluid Jersey nude – effect; Double satin; Lamé; Latex and Vinyls for trimmings; Silk with graphics pattern. Nude effect; Faux-effect, Lace; Satin; Deconstructed graphic; Prints on glossy taffeta; Satin doubled with silk velvet.

I believe that this day organized by MilanoUnica is perfectly successful in its intent, which is to excite and stimulate us, and above let us return home with the desire to create, write, draw, experiment. In a particularly difficultand trying period, I think it’s a great result.

I conclude with the words of Antonella Martinetto, President of Moda In, a sincere statement totally agree: “Words are not enough, then I need images, sounds and colors, only then we would get out from the “comfortable” mediocrity and emotions will take the upper hand”.

Good life to everyone!

Beatrice
