Dolce & Gabbana presented their new Alta Moda collection at Venice

Dame Helen Mirren, Jennifer Lopez at Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda in Venice

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana presented their latest Alta Moda collection in a venue that has, until now, never hosted a fashion show: St Mark’s Square. They explained their choice of the location: “For us, Venice represents the perfect harmony of opposites that attract: it is romantic and sensual, melancholic and joyful, rational and visionary, luminous and nocturnal, sacred and profane, dark and golden. It is the city of Casanova, of the Carnival, of the historic regatta on the Grand Canal.”

St Mark’s Square

The brand guests included Dame Helen Mirren, Jennifer Lopez, Sean Combs, Doja Cat, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Ciara, Monica Bellucci, Christian Bale, and Kitty Spencer were all there, each dressed in Dolce & Gabbana. The label also cast children of some of the most well-known guests: Jessie James and D’Lila Star, the daughters Sean Combs, Monica Bellucci’s daughter Deva, Christian Bale’s daughter Emmeline and Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni.

There were over 100 different looks at the runway. The Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show was a celebration of high craftsmanship, with all pieces rendered in luscious silks, brocades, velvets, glass and crystals, embroidery and special fabrics. Sequined dresses and sculptural gold elements were reminiscent of the Venice’s architecture, and some things were decorated with printed photos of views of te city.

The Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda collection, as well as the show in Venice with star guests, is quite in the spirit of the brand’s DNA – pretentious, but nothing new or interesting from the point of view of art of costume.

VIVIEN CANADAS FINAL COLLECTION, PHOTOGRAPHY BY SU LEICA MUELLER

VIVIEN CANADAS, WOMENSWEAR, CENTRAL
SAINT MARTINS’ MA FASHION COURSE

The conversation around fleeing the big cities for rural locations is more intense than ever, and Vivien Canadas’ graduate collection is reflecting this exact need to escape the city with the project: ‘A sip of fresh air.’

With no previous academic experience in design and a junior position at Maison Martin Margiela under his belt, Canadas embarked on the ‘human adventure’ of the MA. Working from a London flat, Vivien and two of his classmates, Lucile Guilmard and Ru-yenn Kwok, followed a 15-hour workday, 7 days a week, with military discipline.

The designer spent every minute looking at mundane objects and using them as the starting point for his draping process, which took place on his own body. A trumpet became a pair of trousers, a tortellini pasta became a bag, and the collection became a metaphor for looking at things differently – a sip of fresh air into the rigid outlook linked to city living. Canadas’ draping process was based on the ancient pattern cutting technique of focusing on the geometric shape of a circle. Documenting our relationship with the natural elements by subverting traditional Haute Couture methods, the designer captures the movement of a garment caught in a storm and developed ‘trompe l’oeil’ headpieces that resemble wet hair, bridging the tradition of crafts with the modernity of fresh designs.

Comme des Garçons Homme Plus FW 2021/2022

Comme des Garçons Homme Plus FW 2021/2022

Comme des Garçons Homme Plus FW 2021/2022 collection name is “Darkroom” and it’s inspired by “dark place where not only the visual but all six senses come into play”. “Just as photographs reveal their images in the darkroom, so can creation, development, and progress, we believe, also come out of darkness.” – explained Rei Kawakubo. In this collection Kawakubo showed a lot of deconstructive jackets crossed with coats – traditional for the brand Comme des Garçons, but quite fresh and wearable for men’s fashion.

The only thing that was too radical for a modern man in the Comme des Garçons Homme Plus FW 2021/2022 collection was high – heeled shoes, in the style of women’s shoes of the 1920s.

Viktor and Rolf Spring 2021 Couture in Modoslav’s collages

Viktor and Rolf Spring 2021 Couture, collage by Modoslav

In general, the last week of Haute Couture did not cause me any positive emotions. Most collections are boring: no skill in cutting and sewing, no new ideas, no interesting images at the art level.

Viktor and Rolf Spring 2021 Couture, collage by Modoslav

The Viktor and Rolf Spring 2021 Couture Collection is no exception – nothing new. Aesthetically, the collection reminded me of the kitschy fashion of the 1830s, when young (and especially not young) ladies did not know how to emphasize their own personality, made stupid hairstyles, ugly hats and clung to bows, a lot of ridiculous bows.
