JEWELRY BEYOND SPACE AND TIME: THE SHORT FILM BY DANIEL SANNWALD FOR DELFINA DELETTREZ

Daniel Sannwald made a short-film which evokes a 3D parallel universe, that is beyond time and space presenting “The magic triangle”, Fall/Winter 2013 collection created by the smashing jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez, inspired by the fascination for unknown, other worldly ufos which features an enchanting play of geometry, constructions (like the “shark attack” series where the stones are encased in geometric pieces) and lights of gems as topaz along with patterns and structures as the eyes shaped earrings that are a leitmotiv of her work.

Daniel Sannwald ha realizzato un cortometraggio che evoca un universe parallelo tridimensionale, è oltre il tempo e lo spazio che presenta “The magic triangle”, collezione autunno/inverno 2013 creata dalla formidabile designer di gioielli Delfina Delettrez che si ispira alla fascinazione per l’ alieno, gli extraterrestri di altri mondi, di cui è protagonista un incantevole gioco di geometria, costruzioni (come la serie “shark attack” in cui le pietre sono incastonate in pezzi geometrici) e le luci di gemme quali topazio unitamente a motivi e strutture quali gli orecchini a forma di occhi che sono un leitmotiv del suo lavoro.

FASHION, TRADITION & INNOVATION ON SHOW AT ALTAROMA

Raffaella Curiel talking about lightness and femininity and elegance which is all about self-confidence

Raffaella Curiel talking about lightness and femininity and elegance which is all about self-confidence

One day of trunk shows in Rome, fashion shows and exhibitions with a focus on tradition, art and craftsmanship. The day started with press conference with renowned couturier Raffaella Curiel which was held in the suggestive rooms of Hotel Inghilterra, successful chance to appreciate the couturier’s sharpness and irony as well as the craftsmanship embodied in Spring/Summer 2013 collection she made.

Looking at that you can see the name of Valentino has deleted instead the name of Versace is still there, but...

Looking at that you can see the name of Valentino has deleted instead the name of Versace is still there, but…

Later I had been at the National Arts and Folk Traditions Museum (Museo Nazionale delle Arti e Tradizioni Popolari), place where followed an exhibition I announced time ago, “La seduzione dell’ artigianato”, curated by Bonizza Giordani Aragno (https://fashionbeyondfashion.wordpress.com/2012/12/05/creativity-in-open-order-the-seduction-of-craftsmanship-at-the-rome-national-museum-of-arts-and-folk-traditions).

...in the end it has also deleted, along with the thanks
…in the end it has also deleted, along with the thanks

I discovered due to this circumstance the exhibition has been set up without the collaboration of fashion houses ( as it usually happens and it should happen) and therefore as it has evidenced by the flyer there is at the entrance of Museum, brands like Valentino and Versace, pretended the delete of their names. Being the exhibition set up with the clothes of private collectors it has also deleted the thanks to the fashion houses.

Gattinoni Spring/Summer 2013

I discovered that as that has been the set of Gattinoni fashion show, brand designed by Guillermo Mariotto who has the merit of making concrete by using a hilarious aesthetics suggestions coming from contemporary times and political framework, successfully evoking a kind of luxury breakfast at Arcore( renowned Berlusconi’s residency and set of burlesque parties).

Later I moved to the area of Campo dei Fiori to visit A.I. Fair Future, a showcase of high-end craftsmanship and art at the Howtan Space. When I crossed Piazza Farnese to go to the event I was pleased to see a peaceful public protest organized by the Mario Mieli Association for claiming the right of the same sex couple to get married.

Not being a great fan of marriage as I prefer the freedom of loving without being obliged, I think “it doesn’t bind a dream with a contract” as Domenico Modugno sang in “L’ Anniversario”, track censured in Italy during the Seventies which became later the soundtrack for the recognition of rights to the couples of people who aren’t married beyond their gender. I am proud of having attended the public protests concerning this issue during the last years to get more rights, as freedom is a goal for every individual and is the evidence of a democratic and liberal society.

I appreciated at the Howtan Space the creations of many brands and couturiers and their grotesque interpretations on paper made by the brilliant artist Vincenzo Montini.

Then I visited the Hadrian’s Temple for the exhibition Limited/Unlimited, (organized by Altaroma in collaboration with many celebrated brands), featuring limited editions inspired by the theme of red carpet. That has been the chance to see friends I didn’t see since a long time,see again others and meet Goga Ashkenazi, the charming woman who owns the fashion house Vionnet.

MODA, TRADIZIONE & INNOVAZIONE IN MOSTRA AD ALTAROMA

Un giorno di trunk show a Rome, sfilate e mostre incentrate su tradizione, arte e artigianalità. La giornata è cominciata con la conferenza stampa della rinomata couturier Raffaella Curiel che si è tenuta nelle suggestive stanze dell’ Hotel Inghilterra, felice occasione per apprezzare l’ acume e l’ ironia della couturier come anche l’ artigianalità racchiusa nella collezione primavera/estate 2013 da lei realizzata.

Dopo sono stata presso il Museo Nazionale delle Arti e Tradizioni Popolari, luogo in cui proseguiva una mostra da me annunciata tempo fa, “La seduzione dell’ artigianato”, curata da Bonizza Giordani Aragno (https://fashionbeyondfashion.wordpress.com/2012/12/05/creativity-in-open-order-the-seduction-of-craftsmanship-at-the-rome-national-museum-of-arts-and-folk-traditions).

Ho scoperto in ragione di questa circostanza che la mostra è stata allestita senza la collaborazione di case di moda (come solitamente accade e dovrebbe accadere) e perciò come si evince dal flyer che é all’ entrata del Museo, brand quali Valentino e Versace, hanno preteso la cancellazione dei loro nomi. Essendo la mostra stata allestita massimamente con gli abiti di collezionisti privati sono stati anche cancellati i ringraziamenti alle case di moda.

Sylvio Giardina

Ho scoperto ciò poiché questa era la location della sfilata di Gattinoni, brand disegnato da Guillermo Mariotto che ha il merito di concretizzare, avvalendosi di una ilare estetica, suggestioni provenienti dalla contemporaneità e dalla cornice politica, evocando felicemente una sorta di lussuosa colazione ad Arcore( rinomata residenza di Berlusconi e location di party burlesque).

Successivamente mi sono spostata nei dintorni di Campo dei Fiori per visitare A.I. Fair Future, una esposizione di alta artigianalità ed arte presso l’ Howtan Space. Quando ho attraversato Piazza Farnese per recarmi all’ evento sono stata lieta di vedere una pacifica manifestazione di pubblica protesta, organizzata dall’ Associazione Mario Mieli per rivendicare il diritto di sposarsi per le coppie dello stesso sesso.

Non essendo una grande ammiratrice del matrimonio poiché preferisco la libertà di amare senza essere obbligata, penso che “con un contratto non si lega un sogno” come cantava Domenico Modugno in “L’ Anniversario”, brano censurato in Italia negli anni Settanta che successivamente è divenuto la colonna sonora per il riconoscimento dei diritti per le coppie di fatto al di là del loro gender. Sono fiera di aver partecipato alle manifestazioni di protesta pubblica inerenti questa problematica in questi ultimi anni per ottenere più diritti, poiché la libertà è un obiettivo per tutti gli individui ed è la dimostrazione di una società democratica e liberale.

Ho apprezzato all’ Howtan Space le creazioni di molteplici brand e couturier e le loro grottesche interpretazioni su carta realizzate dal brillante artista Vincenzo Montini.

Ho quindi visitato il Tempio di Adriano per la mostra Limited/Unlimited(organizzata da Altaroma in collaborazione con molti celebri brand) di cui sono protagonisti limited editions che si ispirano al tema del red carpet. Ciò è stata l’ occasione per vedere amici che non vedevo da lungo tempo, rivederne altri e conoscere Goga Ashkenazi, l’ affascinante donna, proprietaria della casa di moda Vionnet.

THE CONTEMPORARY CULT OF POSTMODERNISM AT PITTI

Kenzo Fall/Winter 2013-2014, photo by Giovanni Giannoni, courtesy of Pitti

The postmodernism in its many, catchy and fresh versions under the sign of easily decodable products has been the leitmotiv of Florentine fashion tradeshow event Pitti, a celebration of semiotic from contemporary times which featured as special guests Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the creative directors of Kenzo (who contributed as fashion designers of New York brand Opening Ceremony to develop a casual-chic elegance and a laudable habit that gave rise to successful teamings with creatives as Chloe Sevigny, Yoko Ono and Delfina Delettrez).

The same semiotic approach along with light colors, fluid and caressing lines and volumes is embodied in the menswear and womenswear capsule collection by the young Italian fashion designer Emiliano Rinaldi (who paid homage to Florence, his native city) as well as the. fun graphic elements, nice prints, catchy details and accessories – as the shopping bags – that featured in the collection by the WION finalist Andrea Pompilio.

IL CULTO CONTEMPORANEO DEL POSTMODERNISMO AL PITTI

Il postmodernismo nelle sue plurime, accattivanti e fresche versioni all’ insegna di prodotti facilmente decodicabili è stato il leitmotiv dell’ ultima edizione dell’ evento fieristico di moda fiorentino Pitti, celebrazione della semiotica della contemporaneità di cui sono stati protagonisti  quali special guests Humberto Leon e Carol Lim, direttori creativi di creative di Kenzo (che hanno contribuito nelle vesti di fashion designers del brand newyorkese Opening Ceremony a consolidare una eleganza casual-chic e anche una lodevole prassi che ha dato vita a felici collaborazioni con creativi quali Chloe Sevigny, Yoko Ono e Delfina Delettrez).

Il medesimo approccio semiotico unitamente a colori tenui, forme e volumi fluidi e carezzevoli è racchiuso nella collezione capsule uomo e donna del giovane fashion designer italiano Emiliano Rinaldi (che ha reso omaggio a Firenze, la sua città natia) come anche i divertenti grafismi, le simpatiche stampe,gli accattivanti dettagli e accessori – quali le shopping bags -, protagonisti della collezione del finalista di WION Andrea Pompilio.

Silvia Venturini Fendi has been breathing the air of fashion since birth, her recent initiative – as President of AltaRoma – is art and fashion in Trastevere which merges fashion with art, the leitmotiv of a smashing series of exhibitions as A.I. Gallery( a format created by Clara Tosi Pamphili that showcases and rediscovers art, craftsmanship and emerging creativity) and the opening solo exhibition of Eddie Peack at Lorcan O’ Neill art gallery which was held in Rome in the area of Trastevere at Orti D’ Alibert and was an official event on the AltaRoma calendar. Studios were open at Ciriaco Campus, Sandro Sanna, Gino Giannetti and Kevin Waltz and showcased the sculpture “Chiodi” by the artist Davide Orlandi Dormino – he also presented a fun jacket which was made incollaboration with StudioPretzel, a brand created by Emiliano Laszlo – along with the “Pool house project” by Giulio Delettrez. I enjoyed a marvelous afternoon under the sign of fashion, art and design that ended with a fun cocktail.

Silvia Venturini Fendi si é trovata a respirare l’ aria della moda sin dalla nascita, la sua recente rassegna – nelle vesti di Presidente di AltaRoma – è l’ arte e la moda a Trastevere che unisce arte e moda, il leitmotiv di una formidabile serie di mostre quali A.I. Gallery( un format creato da Clara Tosi Pamphili che espone e riscopre l’ arte, artigianalità e creatività emergente) e la personale di Eddie Peack alla galleria d’arte Lorcan O’ Neill che si è tenuta a Roma nell’ area di Trastevere agli Orti D’ Alibert ed è stata un evento ufficiale del calendario di AltaRoma. Gi studi erano aperti da Ciriaco Campus, Sandro Sanna, Gino Giannetti e Kevin Waltz ed ivi è stata esposta la scultura “Chiodi” dell’ artista Davide Orlandi Dormino – costui ha anche presentato una divertente giacca che è stata realizzata in collaborazione con StudioPretzel, un brand creato da Emiliano Laszlo – unitamente al “Pool house project”di Giulio Delettrez. Ho apprezzato un meraviglioso pomeriggio all’ insegna di moda, arte e design che si è concluso con un divertente cocktail.

“DELPHINARIUM”, AN EXHIBITION EXPLORING THE MARVELOUS WORLD OF DELFINA DELETTREZ AT PITTI

Delfina Delettrez, photo by Gaia Branca

Delfina Delettrez, is a charming, vibrant, ironic individual and a bright creative, young jewelry designer who featured in the latest edition of Pitti fashion tradeshow event and showcased the creations she made at the opening of exhibition “Delphinarium”, curated by Emanuela Nobile Mino which was held at the Antonella Villanova Design Gallery – and will be running until 10th September 2012 -, pieces included a bracelet, which was a limited edition piece made exclusively for the event. This event was a success and gave her the opportunity to talk about her work.

Art, craftsmanship, design and jewelry, can you tell me about this alchemy that features in your work?

“I love using the traditional techniques of goldsmith’s art along with new materials. I like resin or the use of materials like the ones that I used to create the bracelet, which is a limited edition made exclusively for the Antonella Villanova Design Gallery. It’s a ceramic varnish, arising from a color and it totally explodes. It’s a robotic side and at the same time it is an insect as the colors and shades of insects come out.

I like merging classic jewel with the pop color, acid, using marble and merging that with the surreal element…I love playing with materials. I think the goldsmith artisans like me should find new solutions as the cost of raw materials keep rising, thus I think the innovative material will be the future of jewelry”.

Is there one particular item that you are most fond of?

“It generally depends on times and obsessions, but I am fond for sure of the “Love is in the hair” collection, where I could make contemporary relics. I was inspired very much by the Italian tradition, folk tradition, the way mothers saved the first fallen tooth of son, its first cut lock. The resin heart embodying the cut lock of my daughter is really the object I’m very close”.

Do you tell me about the new collection and your forthcoming projects?

“Maybe I will be able to start opening the other part of my brain within one hour…I like bringing my collections around the world, the travel with me for a while. It’s very funny imagining a travelling collection which goes where it features energy and people as it happened during the exhibition here at Pitti. I enjoyed putting something which is extremely feminine – as it can be jewelry – into a context which is so masculine”.

I presented my collection during Miami Art Basel at the Thomas Mayer Gallery, I also set up presentations in Paris. I like to show my work to people that are able to appreciate it.

I’m working on the new collection which will be presented in September, but it’s a trouble on Summer, as you never know once you come back from holidays, everything can be disgusting for you then you are truly cheated. Naturally there will be a lot of color, and a lot of enamel as I miss that, but it won’t feature bright colors, but light shades and geometric shapes”.

 

“DELPHINARIUM”, UNA MOSTRA CHE ESPLORA IL MERAVIGLIOSO MONDO DI DELFINA DELETTREZ A PITTI

 

Delfina Delettrez è una vibrante, ironica individualità ed una brillante creativa, giovane designer di gioielli che é stata protagonista dell’ ultima edizione dell’ evento fieristico di moda Pitti ed ha esposto le creazioni da lei realizzate all’ inaugurazione della mostra “Delphinarium”, curata da Emanuela Nobile Mino che si è tenuta presso la Galleria di Design Antonella Villanova – e proseguirà fino al and 10 settembre 2012 -, i pezzi includevano un bracciale che era una limited edition, realizzata esclusivamente per l’ evento. Tale evento è stato un successo e le ha dato la possibilità di parlare del suo lavoro.

Arte, artigianalità, design e gioielli, puoi parlarmi di questa alchimia che é  protagonista della tua opera?

“Amo usare le tecniche tradizionali dell’ arte orafa unitamente a nuovi materiali. Mi piace la resina o l’ uso di materiali quali quelli di cui mi sono avvalsa per creare il bracciale che è una edizione limitata realizzata esclusivamente per la Galleria di Design Antonella Villanova Design Gallery. È una vernice a ceramica che nasce da un colore e poi se non hai il controllo esplode totalmente. Ha un lato robotico ma allo stesso tempo è insetto perché vengono fuori i colori e le sfumature degli insetti.

Mi piace anche contaminare il gioiello classico con il colore pop, con l’acido, usare i marmi per poi contaminarli con l’elemento surreale…mi piace giocare con i materiali. Penso penso che gli  artigiani orafi come me saremo costretti a trovare nuove soluzioni perché le materie prime saranno sempre in crescita, quindi credo che il materiale innovativo sarà il futuro del gioiello”.

Esiste un pezzo particolare a cui sei più affezionata?

“Generalmente dipende dai periodi e le ossessioni, però sono di certo affezionata alla collezione “Love is in the hair” dove ho potuto realizzare delle reliquie contemporanee. Ero molto ispirata dalla tradizione italiana, la tradizione popolare, il modo in cui le madri conservavano il primo dente caduto del figlio, la prima ciocca di capelli tagliati. Sicuramente il cuore di resina che racchiude la ciocca di capelli di mia figlia è l’ oggetto a cui sono più legata”.

Mi parli della nuova collezione e dei tuoi prossimi progetti?

“Forse tra un’ ora potrò iniziare ad aprire l’ altra parte del cervello…, mi piace portare le mie collezioni in giro per il mondo, farle un po’ viaggiare con me. È molto buffo immaginare una collezione itinerante che va dove c’è energia e gente come è accaduto durante la presentazione qui a Pitti. Ho apprezzato inserire qualcosa che è estremamente femminile  – come può essere iI gioiello – in un contesto così maschile.

Ho presentato la mia collezione a Miami Art Basel presso la Galleria Thomas Mayer, ho anche allestito presentazioni a Parigi. Mi piace esporre il mio lavoro a gente in grado di apprezzarlo.

Sto lavorando alla nuova collezione che sarà presentata a Settembre, ma è un problema d’ estate perché , ma quando c’è l’estate di mezzo è sempre un gran problema perché al rientro ti può fare tutto schifo e quindi sei fregato. Naturalmente  ci sarà molto colore e molto smalto perché mi manca, non ci saranno colori forti, ma tenui nuances e forme geometriche”.
