It is a lash of autumn icy wind, suddenly taking us away from the tepid wakes of an already gone summer, dazing us with nostalgia, domestic promises and burning fires, with wood scents and longing hues, that has been captured in the textile patterns of Daniela Gregis winter collection.

With an extraordinary pictorial sensibility, the designer from Bergamo translates the emotional essence of the coldest season through a clever combination of colour and fabric. The cashmere, treated with washes, in the refined chestnut tones returns the surprise of the fruits in the October brushwood, as mushrooms impossible to find and half-opened husks.

The wools, always washed into creased crêpe, take back to the night harshness of dark or clear blue skies.

And in the same way her ever-present silks, being taffetas or crêpe de chine, allure the more melancholic expression of the season, the foliage fleeting fate, from the beauty of the yellows, of the oranges, to the brown of the pile of leaves withering on the ground in the end.

Independent garments, in their brand new solutions, with tubulars changing the shapes from time to time, from fluent and wide to gathered and crouched.

Dresses that are part of a temporality definitely dissociated from the poisoned frenzy of the contemporary metropolis, remembering and inviting with firmness the pleasure of living our time in a better way.

Here the project presentation video produced by Cà Foscari University. Sorry, we are still waiting for the English subtitles but here you can watch some IVO MILAN ordinary life moments with the Cà Foscari researcher Erika Cavriani.

In the last months the University Cà Foscari of Venice –the oldest Business School in Italy and one of the first in Europe- is dealing with IVO MILAN through a research competition, financed by European founds, which investigates the opportunities of the sustainable innovation for the manufacturing business through the cultural heritage ‘refunctionalization’ of the company archive and of our boutique.

Trippen heavy-duty boot style ankle boot in cowhide leather, closure with strings and strap with outer side buckle, smooth leather on the heel and on the toe, the other parts in rough leather, removable cork insole, rubber sole.

The exceptionality of this research lies in the fact that for the first time they chose to use and set off the “archive deposit” (partially available online in our YouTube channel and in the Special Room section) of a commercial and not industrial business, recognizing the lead retailer role and identifying the knowledge value deposited in our ‘historical memory’ as a potential strategic hub useful to re-launch the creativity and the innovative capacity of the Italian fashion industry. We have been chosen for the shop personality and for its particular address (radical fashion curator), for the long business history (118 years and today with Sari and Soili, Orlando’s daughters, the IVO MILAN story has now entered into its fifth generation), for the impressive archival heritage gathered together, for the forty-year information technology experience and for the e-commerce website, almost entirely run among ourselves, thanks to which, for more than 6 years, we are operating worldwide.

It must be acknowledged that all this happened for the elective affinities we discovered, through our often difficult but timeless dresses, with our costumers, without which it wouldn’t be possible to tell this extraordinary story. And here we have to admit that, more than our storytelling capacity, important was their cultural background, precondition and evidence of a wonderful openness to the new and of an outstanding spirit of independence from fashions and trends.

Yohji, Yamamoto, FW 2014, Backstage

Celtic harsh resonances support the presentation of a simply great Yohji Yamamoto’s Autumn/Winter collection, in an alternation of folk melodies suggesting the thematic references chosen for the coming season. Resolute in going into all the possible connections between the sartorial work and the artistic dimension, the great Japanese master embraces a narrative bond with the artist Yasuto Sasada, where form and colour converge in the same figurative imagery.

Yohji, Yamamoto, FW 2014, Backstage

In fact both, one through the study of the volumes and of the formal structures of the garments, the other with the chromatic ability of the drawing, offer an amazing representation of that syncretism, typical of the Japanese culture, between traditional and contemporary elements. Printings of archaic mythological figures, in metamorphosis with ultracontemporary pop and manga references, overlap themselves with the plentiful dimensions of the outerwear.

Yohji, Yamamoto, Fw 2014, Backstage

Shapes evocating ancient social roles, fully-developed and made up-to-date with absolutely more modern times, thanks to an efficient balance between the fabric selection, from the wool to the cotton canvas, and the cutting-edge movement of the forms in the ever-present Yohji’s black.

If the urban streets show off replicants suffocated inside all the same skimpy padded coat, Yohji Yamamoto challenges the lazy and atavistic trend to homologation offering the possibility to distinguish the self inside garments conceived as first works, not only never seen before, but most of all heralding of thought, ideas and respect towards who would wear them.

Sun, rain, hot, cold…It’s really difficult to decide what to wear when the weather is unsettled, maybe we are even far from home and it’s not possible to sheltered from sudden meteorological changes.

It’s hard especially if you don’t know the Final Home line. Offshoot of  the designer Kosuke Tsumura’s longstanding artistic endeavours, Final Home gives hint with its name of the idea at the basis of the project: it proposes to provide ultra practical piece of clothing that could become your shelter in case of natural disasters.  The functionality is so much identifying that it has been described as an extraordinary futuristic expression of style and function. Each Final Home jacket, overcoat, waistcoat is overall waterproof and very light to be brought along, but the intelligence is shown in the multi-zips which not only connote clearly the brand design but they have a specific function: to be filled up. In fact inside them it’s possible to put in padded ‘cushions’ that transform drastically the piece of clothing seasonal nature: from a mid-season raincoat to a winter padded jacket, or crumpled up newspaper pages to increase the windproof function. Actually inside the pockets made by the zips it’s possible to put in every kind of objects absolutely necessary to us or, when the article is made in see-through polyester, to use the “filling” as a decorative chance.

Awarded with countless recognitions, featured in different contemporary art exhibitions (among the last ones Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion in Tokyo), Kosuke Tsumura forms itself in the Miyake Design Studios and for several years had a hand in the Issey Miyake’s collections.

Future Beauty, Final Home
