Flavio Lucchini Anthological Exhibition

September 24, 2012

Exposición, FASHION

When I saw Flavio Lucchini‘s exhibition last year at the Venice Biennale, I was intrigued by how he used the “burka” as the starting point of his works and related it with fashion and fashion magazines. In my view there is no connection (the burka is not a dress to begin with), but it was clear that it was the work of someone who has seen it all. Lucchini’s long lasting career includes being the founder of L’Uomo Vogue, and creating and working with the influential Amica, Vogue Italia, and many other publications by Condé Nast Group. But then, in the Nineties and at the height of his career, Lucchini’s passion for art takes over and he begins to use the female dress as a source of inspiration.

With Sul sogno del corpo che ‘abita’ nella città ideale di Sabbioneta – On the dream of the body ‘living’ in the ideal city of Sabbioneta exhibition, curated by Anna Vergine and Gabriele Fallini, he will show a series of pieces from his beginnings until now. An interesting exhibition from someone who knows the fashion world very well and although he may be disenchanted by it, continues to be captured by the female universe, and above all, the dress.

Cuando ví la exposición de Flavio Lucchini el año pasado en la Bienal de Venecia, me intrigó el uso del “burka” como punto de partida de sus trabajos y como lo relacionó con la moda y las revistas de moda. Desde mi punto de vista no hay forma de conectarlo (el burka no es un vestido), pero era bastante claro que se trataba del trabajo de alguien que lo ha visto todo. La larga carrera de Lucchini incluye ser el fundador de L’Uomo Vogue, y creador de las revistas Amica, Vogue Italia, y tantas otras revistas del Condé Nast Group. En los noventas, en lo alto de su carrera, la pasión de Luccini hacia el arte ganó a la moda y comienza a trabajar inspirándose en el vestido.
Con la exposición Sul sogno del corpo che ‘abita’ nella città ideale di Sabbioneta, curada por Anna Vergine y Gabriele Fallini, el mostrará una serie de piezas desde sus comienzos hasta ahora. Una exposición interesante de alguien que conoce el mundo del arte muy bien, y que a pesar de estar un poco desencantado con el mismo, continúa sintiéndose cautivado por el universo femenino, y sobre todo, el vestido.
Palazzo Ducale –  Città di Sabbioneta (MN). Italy. From September 23rd to October 28th 2012.
