EXHIBIT - Manus x Machina

Zenija Esmits

On a recent trip to New York we visited the extraordinary Manus x Machina show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. 

The exhibit - Fashion in an Age of Technology - focuses on haute couture and prêt-à-porter and the partnership between man and machine in its creation. 

Sections spotlighting techniques and processes such as embroidery, lace and pleating span two levels and provide a fashion feast for the eyes. Corresponding case studies of haute couture pieces range from the turn of the last century to this season's Spring/Summer collection.

The costuming and theatrics of The Opera are often spectacular - when cinematic talent and haute couture collide, it becomes even more so.

This past week Valentino Garavani & Giancarlo Giammette's opera La Traviata opened in Rome. Beyond the prestige that follows the Valentino name was the added cachet of the name Coppola. When given the chance, Garavani chose Sofia Coppola to direct the re-staging of the Verdi tragedy.

In Collaboration with the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, Valentino & Coppola designed and directed the performance. Valentino himself, created the four costumes worn by the lead character Violetta and Maison Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Picciolo designed the wardrobe for the rest of the cast.

Guests at the opening night showed allegiance for the designers by wearing their Operatic-best, which was coincidently, Valentino.

Valentino AW16 - Highlights

Zenija Esmits

Possibly our favourite collection from PFW was Valentino. Always embodying femininity and elegance the AW16 collection did not disappoint. The overall inspiration was undeniable: Ballet. With leotards, tutus and tulle floating down the runway it was a collection designed to dance. Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli executed yet another exquisite collection.

Rockstud - going strong.

The now iconic Rockstud bag - has been around for some time. With no signs of losing momentum, once again the Valentino staple made several appearances at NYFW. Whether clutch, camo or camel - any way you slice it, it's the go-to bag for street-style subjects.
