Roberto Capucci for theatre

In 2018 legendary Roman designer Roberto Capucci shares his extraordinary vision in an exhibition of imaginary male dancers.

The drawings of Roberto Capucci are a sensational surprise from the quiet designer, who first took his architectural outfits from Rome to Florence and in the 1960s had a Paris atelier near Coco Chanel. Since the new millennium, he has concentrated on compelling male drawings focused on ballet. They form an exhibition, “Dionysian Capucci: Theatre Designs”, at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.

Compared to the spare, architectural tailoring worn in the past by glamorous clients including Marilyn Monroe and Maria Callas, these are fantasies soaring into flight. The colours alone are painterly mixes of plum with orange, shocking pink and yellow, green, purple, blue, orange and red. That conjunction of shades is within a single outfit – if that is the word to describe fabric coiled in exotic swathes around hips and thighs. Capucci explains that he did not really focus on Dionysius and his metamorphoses, but that his drawings are more of a development of what he has created since his childhood.

“When I draw, I think of the future,” Capucci says. “There are transgressive costumes, with geometric exactness. And when I think of fashion, I think of art without adjectives.”

Thierry Mugler fashion sketches for Grand Show at Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin

Thierry Mugler

The Grand Show “WYLD” at Friedrichstadt-Palast Berlin was directed by Manfred Thierry Mugler – the scriptwriter, stage director, photographer and perfumer. He is also responsible for the creation of all costumes, and co-wrote the script with Roland Welke. This larger-than-life show was a cosmic love story: he is a young BMX rider who has his feet firmly planted on the ground, she is a fierce woman living at the top of the Berlin TV tower with her head in the clouds. This is the story of how two souls separated by an infinite distance, finally meet.

Thierry Mugler:

THE WYLD includes all Berlin’s positive vibrations: energy, modernity, timelessness and culture. These are the feelings that I wanted to share through my show, and I wanted it to be spectacular. The Palast is the only place where such a concept could take place, the only venue that could host such a project. The largest stage in the world for an other-worldly show.”
