Giovani avi (young forefathers) buds from a family portrait of the Rambaldis. This because it’s especially from the pictures that the mother’s mask emerges when she plays the role of the respectable lady: this laminated image has been exacerbated, through a lens made of memories lived by pieces coming from the lady and young lady classic wardrobe, with particular attention to the italian tradition. The “forefathers” become “young” through a short circuit between the epic dimension of the revolt and the soothing one of the little bourgeoisie, and they are protagonists of some atmospheres that have the taste of a distorted italian character.
The collection is developed starting from the classic elements of the female wardrobe: the loden, the cape, the flared skirt, the pleated one, the shirt, the tailleur jacket, that lose sight of the original proportions and they become stratified. Emblematic pieces, proposed again and compromised with geometric prints of islamic touch, to emphasize an anachronistic bourgeoise idea of exoticism. Plastic materials like the scuba added up with woollen jersey and the silk technically worked to seem nylon, passed by maxi paillettes made by printed pvc, act like annoying element.
Polished prints and stratification – dresses, overcoats, skirts and petticoats, ankles covered by socks stolen by the childhood world – force good things in poor taste to find meticulous simplicity: a different dimension, perhaps even more perverse, of the “priggishness”.
