If only the Christmas holidays would be an occasion to offer not so obvious gifts, with redounded shapes and brands, but rather unique ones, for their material, for their creative ingenuity or thought intensity, a reason to take a look over our online catalogue or visit our store in via Santa Lucia in Padua, one could find…

Starting with Suzusan‘s cashmere, a young Japanese who already is the creator of splendid knitted accessories for Yohji Yamamoto, with his scarves, polka dot blankets and the knitwear, all colored with the ancient shibori technique, he surprises us with the usage of unusual colors on an usually so classic fibber.

The comfortable hats of the Japanese Chisaki, made in One Size only and with warm fabrics, never irritating, with shapes that can easily be modelled.

At the acme of summer, the first winter arrivals distract us from the high temperatures and from the phlegmatic calm of the semi-deserted cities.

In the store we can taste the new season that day by day takes shape around the choices made six months ago, during the Milan and Paris orders.

There’s no need to be distracted though, because the news will be really exciting: authors like Marc Le BihanRenli Su and many other surprises, unprecedented poetics that will integrate the already available assortment, projecting us onto truly prolific, cultured and ingenious global modernity.

While waiting a quick look at the new arrivals, from Daniela Gregis to Boboutic, the 132. 5 by Issey Miyake, the nuno felt of Cri-S and the Trippen shoes…

On a rainy Saturday morning in Paris, with the town still sleeping, we run to the venue hosting the parade of Junya Watanabe: the faculty of pharmacology at Rue de l’Observatoire, exactly at the opposite end of the metro stop to which we have to go in the evening also for Comme des Garçons.

The rain, the time and the hurry to look for the fastest way to reach our destination do not favor the good humor, until, once into the mighty faculty salon, we are not awakened by a loud rock. The rhythm spurs for attention, the fierce gait of the models drags the present into an inevitable, and personal, reflection on fashion, on its utility or emptiness, and above all, it generates a real, widespread and more than ever palpable perception of uncontrollable enthusiasm.

Junya Watanabe Fall/Winter 2017-2018

As if the world suddenly recapture each potential, the possible silhouettes projected on Junya Watanabe‘s future Fall/Winter incite that desire for change that is the vulnus itself of fashion and the radicalism with which the Japanese designer staggers it is thrilling.

Faithful to his own ‘cyber’ vision of contemporaneity, Watanabe assembles materials with his typical origami form, which on this occasion we can recognize in the circle: calf hair, black leather, leopard spots, all strictly in synthetic leather, studs and pailletes re-compose patch-works of cultures and epochs of costume history of the most experimental forms. Excess is the guiding thread of deformed decorative elements, which not only outline unusual aesthetics, but also become part of and modify the human physical structure. Caps like sculptures, multicolored textile wigs, lacking any romantic poetics and built to defend any hypothetical attack, tunics that amplify the circularity of the chakras, coats shaped around the feminine figure with asymmetrical spheres, possible ultra-modern armors against the advancement of the creative nothing.

But the excess is finally cleaned, made accessible in the showroom choices, revealing how far it can go and how it can be traced back to the hectic daily life but still it remains a visionary exercise of pure and extraordinary contemporary textile art.

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…
