1. 'Le Habit Noir': Men in Black - Professor Lynda Nead


    from Gresham College Added 41 0 0

    In 1863 Charles Baudelaire, wrote about the 'Painter of Modern Life' depicting the uniformity of male dress codes with its black suits, top hats and patent leather boots as having created 'a cortege of undertakers'. Whereas women's dress was constantly moving with the seasons and responding to passing styles, men's dress appeared remarkably static and unadorned. Drawing on the writings of Charles Baudelaire and Mallarmé and on the paintings of Constantin Guys and Edouard Manet, the lecture will examine the visual representation and cultural meanings of the habit noir. It will also consider the related British male types of the dandy and the swell. Were men in the nineteenth century really just a neutral backdrop to the ebb and flow of female fashion, or did men also engage in and explore sartorial style? The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/le-habit-noir-men-in-black Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597.

                Experience the collection now: http://cana.li/1KXLccF “When I first started thinking about this collection, I was immediately transported to 1950s Milan. I envisioned an impeccably dressed man walking down the street as neon signs flickered to life around him, illuminating spirited, refined details. My inspiration began with this vision – a series of lines that intersect and overlap, representing a crossroads between this elegant man of the past and his contemporary counterpart for an aesthetic that redefines casual refinement. The runway bridges tradition and modernity, seamlessly combining the excellence of Canali tailoring with my rendition of the new season’s look. Lines are an essential part of the collection; I trace them one at a time, studying and moving them to craft motifs – abstract stripes, checks and shapes of varying proportions that underlie signature elements of my aesthetic and the identity of Canali at the same time. These lines shift and evolve, developing into a distinct architecture of style. The collection blends formal and informal – sweaters, jackets, coats – in an original composite of layers. Soft outerwear in pure double cashmere, clean-cut pants with considerable cuffs that sit just at the ankle, ample sweaters with braided detailing and accessories in premium and unique materials. The color palette is deliberately monochrome – black, white and gray with hints of petrol blue and “Canali” yellow – giving geometric designs and luxurious fabrics the attention they deserve.” Andrea Pompilio You can also find us here: http://www.facebook.com/canali1934 http://www.twitter.com/canali1934 http://www.instagram.com/canali1934 https://plus.google.com/+canali1934 http://www.pinterest.com/canali1934 https://www.youtube.com/user/canali1934

                  A KALEIDOSCOPIC SUMMER “I still remember the sense of wonder I felt when experiencing that simple magic of a kaleidoscope – countless pieces that would shift, rotate and converge, creating infinite images and juxtapositions though constant in their beauty as a whole.” (Andrea Pompilio) Looking through the kaleidoscope, the Canali man is suspended in the timeless atmosphere and everlasting elegance of a Mediterranean Summer. He exudes an air of distinguished nonchalance, reflected in a wardrobe of silhouettes that are loosely defined but pristine at the same time. The inspired hues follow a natural path across an earthy palette, from varying shades of blue to an ochre that transitions from caramel to burgundy, shifting back to a rich hunter green. Luxury is woven into the fabrics in unexpected ways. This season, denim is made from a sophisticated wool-linen blend while a wool-linen-silk material with terry effect creates unique textural landscapes on a two-button jacket. Silk organza and kid leather, exceptionally soft in different ways, add a wonderful lightness to outerwear. Accessories are equally distinctive without distracting with dashes of color and mixtures of materials. Each of these elements shifts and rotates throughout the collection and down the runway, intentionally fragmented, but when seen together, converges into a beautiful mosaic.
