Before deepening the contents of the different collections for next Fall/Winter 2017-’18, we expect that the deliveries make us understand the full development of the Season. However, it’s already possible to immerse us in the Y’s Yohji Yamamoto‘s fiber shadows or in the brush strokes’ blocks of the gauzes and in the Daniela Gregis‘ cashmere made by the loom, or in the experimental tartan and in the synthetic leather of Junya Watanabe, with the muffled and futuristic padding by Comme Des Garçons.

Daniela Gregis F/W 2017-'18

Like every year, when the summer becomes more torrid and the cities become open spaces kissed by the lion sun, silent and suspended in the vacancy leave of its inhabitants, the life of the shop intensifies with an unstoppable frenzy from winter deliveries.

Contrary to the outdoor sunny quietness, the internal rhythm is marked by the recurrence of well-established practices: opening the boxes, controlling and settling, thinking about the outfits and of we go with full-frame shooting. Punctual as always, indifferent to every reasonable and human contrast between what is happening inside and the outside immobility, between those who still work and those who leave for holidays, re-emerges the sentiment of sentiments: the enthusiasm!

Seing reappear, after months that have passed, the choices made during the shopping campaign, ponder upon serviceable items and marvel at those that will soon be celebrated in contemporary art museums, challenging the sultriness by putting on wool and cashmere, fabrics of the great cold, with terrible sandals on…

The vast assortment that characterizes Y’s, the line with which Yohji Yamamoto began in 1977, is now presented in two different moments of the year and also subdivided, without any theoretical fracture, in pre-collection and collection.

We have the pleasure to show you, with our customary video, the Spring/Summer 2017 in its original setting, the Rue Saint Martin showroom in Paris, which assembles the two phases in an easily recognizable stylistic continuum for those familiar with the famous Japanese Maison.

Frequent asymmetries and overlays, hospitable volumes as complex as possible are some of the most recurring codes. The collection with which Yohji expresses his everyday life interpretation reserves, however, minor immediacy merits. The use of color, for example, even if it is a small polka dot, a melange note or apparently a print, is always accompanied by in-depth collaborations between textile exceptionalities and that reservoir of remote traditions represented by unique local dyers, the latest depository of ancient knowledge, involved not only to give the public rare aesthetic suggestions but also to keep that precious handicraft heritage alive.

In the extraordinary combination of modernity and tradition, can be admire indefinable shades of gray on flamed linen, irregular vertical shades created by the morphology of wooden boards on which tencel and cotton cloths are laid, or in the linen, for stretching the chromatic blends that will then be absorbed and altered by the wood base. Or again in the casual paths of the salt lying on the rayon, powered by manual punctures to favor its absorption, and then distributed not by methodical human action but by the whimsical wind direction in a natural and abstract design reflected by shadows and cosmic light spots.

It is impossible to narrate all the knowledge accumulated in a line, Y’s, which, with grace and obstinacy, in the formal balances of each chapter, in the wisdom of fit, insists on respecting the contexts, seasons and complexity of contemporary living.

Daniela Gregis Spring/Summer 2017 full fashion show - Ivo Milan

See the exclusive video of Daniela Gregis fashion show

 

On the pleasant shore of the French Riviera, about half way between Marseilles and the Italian border, stands a large, proud, rose-colored hotel. Deferential palms cool its flushed façade, and before it stretches a short dazzling beach. Lately it has become a summer resort of notable and fashionable people [...]

The famous incipit of Tender is the Night, the masterpiece of Francis Scott Fitzgerald, as the ideal setting to place the Spring/Summer 2017 Daniela Gregis collection.

Impossible not to let yourself  be carried by the chromatic intensity of the painted fibers and by the relaxed release of holiday volumes in the aristocratic and sensual atmospheres of the noble French coast, described with literal photographic skills by the great American author. A gentle and carefree time/period, despite the inspiration from the spontaneous and playful world of childhood of the Bergamask designer, it remembers the light and thoughtless rhythms of an cultivated and demanding elite, payment of a ubiquitous and widespread beauty.

The polka dots are blurred, in the contours and in the shades, reclining on a pleasant breeze on the fleeting silk of crêpe de chine. The unforgettable landscape of an exclusive ‘room with view’ distractedly absorbed in the cedar pastel notes of the voile. The voluptuous luxuriance of the Mediterranean blemish, intercepted in the vigorous linen coating, returned to the dazzling and hallucinating visual impressions of the orange ramages, stained with blue and green. If certain sewed collars, the rigid expression of some of the stiffed models, the reassuring and calm pastel pink, may become vaguely bon-ton, with their chaotic realization, with the choice of humble or washed and wrinkled fabrics, to the contrary, they grab that unconventional liberty, somehow mischievous and rebellious, typical of a sheltered and indulgent prosperity.

Daniela Gregis interprets and translates the most powerful suggestions of the season, reminds us its promises, suggests its warmth and, even before it arrives, invites us to live it fully, to make it memorable!

Junya Watanabe S/S Collection 2017

We always underlined the Junya Watanabe’s peculiar interpretative ability in establishing, in the form of dress, the predominant stresses of our time. Post-modern, cyber-punk, tailor-philosopher of an age crossed by very fast transformations, where, from collection to collection, plastics and brand new materials, parts of abandoned industrial landscapes, occurred, to give shape to his personal metabolization and to his interpretation of the contemporaneity.

With the Spring / Summer 2017 is the fierce spirit of the Japanese designer, produced by Comme des Garçons Maison, to manifest itself in the sunny morning walkway of Palais du Tokyo. Deafening hard-rock music accompanies the proud and hurried pace of bewildering metropolitan warriors, evidently intolerant towards an increasingly thorny and demanding present, exceedingly conformist.

To reinforce the rhythm are the classical decorative elements of the punk movement: crests and other disheveled and colorful hairstyles, tattered leggings and hyper-skimpy mini-skirts.

But the Watanabe quat is not slavish and nostalgic, but provocative and pungent. The cue becomes an opportunity to continue with origami exercises, the textiles module is pyramidal, the threatening metal edges of studs and piercings gain lightness and grace in organza processing, up to the extremes such as a stellar westcoat, not by chance pale pink , returning in serious synthetic leather bags and accessories.

Junya Watanabe S/S Collection 2017

The oscillation between the opposite poles: serious and mild, warlike and docile, composes and articulates the collection. On one side the impetus and vigor of oversize volumes, such as sweatshirts, parca and t-shirt and on the other side the feminine silhouette clearly defined by unexpected draperies, generated by semi-invisible seams, floral bouquet and more accommodating fabrics, like organza and georgette.

Against all odds and reference, the two extremes coexist in a new aesthetic balance, where the mutual control and enhancement generates the most unexpected and unlikely punk expression, poetry!
