MFW17 – Arthur Arbesser Fashion Show – Fall/Winter 2017/2018

MFW17 – Arthur Arbesser Fashion Show – Fall/Winter 2017/2018. Wings of Desire”, the movie directed by Wim Wender’s was the starting point for Arthur Arbesser’s Fall/ Winter 2017/18 collection. The modern fairy-tale has provided the designer with various ideas and thoughts for the new season; a rich and vivid imaginary seeking to link romance and purity and to continuously contrast it with the cruelty of our surrounding reality.

Arbesser’s clothes aim to combine poetic and colorful elements with the rigor of the uniform, yet enhanced by a bold choice of colors.

As being part of the Swarovski Collective 2017, Arbesser had unlimited access to the rich world of crystal, hence, the classic pinstripe has been substituted with fine crystal lines. 

The knitwear, one of Arbesser’s passions, shows delicate workmanship like intarsia knit, transparent inserts or geometric jacquards in precious yarns.

“The hairstyle was inspired by the film Wings of Desire, angels falling in love with humans, set in Berlin in 1987.  The hair is classic ‘finger wave’ with a modern twist.”

Special attention was given to fabrics, graphics and jacquards, which were exclusively created by the designer aiming to infuse natural fibers with a futuristic look: the Tuscan Casentino or Austrian Loden were consciously mixed with technical, metallic or transparent fabrics and padded protective layers.

  The Shoes

The shoes emerged from the collaboration between Arthur Arbesser and Vibram, and are a reinterpretation of their FiveFingers concept. Using high tech materials, stretch calf leather and 3D knitting, are in themselves a small avant-garde capsule collection.

Converso is a new exhibition space in the former church of San Paolo Converso, built between 1549-1619 and hosts frescos by Giulio and Antonio Campi, today it is also the headquarters of the architectural firm CLS Architetti. The church was deconsecrated by Napoleon, later it was used as a storage space, a concert hall and a recording studio for, among others, Maria Callas.

Franco Mazzucchelli – Re-appropriations Installation
Converso presents Re-appropriations, until April 1, a site-specif installation of Milan-based artist Franco Mazzucchelli, curated by Michele D’Aurizio. Since the early 1970s Franco Mazzucchelli has created environmental installations, in which inflatable volumes of joined sheets of polyethylene are made walk-able and live-able. They are intended to disrupt the perception of a familiar place, and to open a getaway from daily routine by suggesting an unfamiliar view of the surrounding space. In the case of Re-appropriations, this attempt brackets out and isolates a portion of a public space and exhorts people to take over that space and redefine it, ultimately, to rediscover the potential of public spaces to solicit spontaneous socialization, in which human encounters are freed of hierarchy, and class, gender and ethnic differences become effaced.
