Pois: infantili, ironici, eleganti e moderni, una soluzione, un po’ la “quadratura del cerchio”.

“Goldie” di Beatrice Brandini

Il nome Polka Dots nasce da una danza, originaria della Cecoslovacchia a fine Ottocento, che ben presto si diffonde in Europa e America e dalla quale viene preso in prestito il nome per definire il tessuto a pois: polka dot pattern.

Amo le fantasie in tutte le sue inclinazioni, uso e utilizzo, dalla moda all’arredamento, e ritengo ogni disegno adatto ad interpretare una personalità e uno stato d’animo, se lo si indossa, un “pensiero”, se lo si osserva e ammira.

Le righe sono sbarazzine e rimandano immediatamente all’estate, i quadri e rombi alla concettualità del costruttivismo, il tartan ai kilt dei clan scozzesi…,  i pois sono l’allure parigino, civettuoli e femminili. Sono perfetti in Estate, ma anche in Inverno, sempre e  soprattutto, quando la moda inventa modi per realizzarli che rimandano a magnifici quadri astratti.

Anche l’arte li ha interpretati e adottati,  addirittura alcuni artisti ne hanno fatto il loro segno distintivo. Penso alla creativa giapponese Yayoi Kusama, “prestata” alla moda con la collaborazione per Vuitton e Marc Jacobs, a Damien Hirst con le sue gigantesche e minimali tele a pois, e, indietro nel tempo, all’invenzione di Roy Lichtenstein (ma ancor prima c’era stato il Puntinismo, con Paul Signac), che dava alle sue opere una connotazione fumettistica, anche se in realtà erano molto altro…..

Nella moda, se guardiamo indietro, i pois ci sono sempre stati, spesso caratterizzavano abiti per evidenziare le forme delle bellissime del cinema anni ’50, ma anche suntuose e magnifiche creazioni da sera di Christian Dior o Jacques Fath. Per arrivare a Moschino che li ha largamente usati, Vivienne Westwood, Comme des Garçon, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, ecc. ecc. Ognuno dando ad essi un interpretazione personale,  creando qualcosa di nuovo. Anche per questo amo i pois, sembrano banali pallini, invece……
