Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci has been a hot commodity recently with his talks of succeeding Galliano at Dior as well as continuing to create for Givenchy, yet the exuberant designer has manage time to curate the upcoming issue of Visionaire. Style.com has obtained exclusive information about the soon to be released issue 60th issue. Religion is explored through commissioned works from a contributors list that includes Karl Lagerfield, Helmut Lang, Paolo Canevari as well as a never before published piece from photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. I’m not sure it was done in angst but to further fuel the talks of his departure for Dior, Tisci stipulated that Givenchy shouldn’t be given any credits, an interesting statement to make. This should be a standout issue along the lines of Visionaire’s Alexander Mcqueen issue.
It was on a Friday afternoon when i was surfing over some fashion blog and suddenly my attention was caught from this bruttoaffareworld.com and the art shown on it, more exactly the hats creation from the Italian designer Alessandro Mengozzi. I started to take more informations about him, visiting his website alessandromengozzi.com i read through his biography. He graduated in fashion design at “Istituto Marangoni” in Milan and currently his working as freelance for several brands. The real begin is represented just right by his high ornamental and scenic hats collection that i came across. His inspiration derives from the nature and this is expressed even through the use of metal, stones, papers, hair, iron, chalk and all the materials able to rapresent a good chance to experiment and project. For sure his strong passion for arts and fashion merges with the costant of a dark view. His IAM label will put on sale the first collection of this young designer during this summer 2011, a great occasion to come across his personal streetwear point of view!
