Fashion passes, style remains
FASHION INSIDE - ICONE DI STILE -
di Claudio Porcarelli
McArthurGlen Castel Romano Designer Outlet celebrates its 20th Anniversary with the exhibition of Claudio Porcarelli, photographer of cinema, television and entertainment’ stars, paying homage to Italy and the bigger icons who have forged the collective imagination and the timeless beauty and style of our country.
Each shot tells the personality portrayed, and opens up to a more universal meaning through the immortalized aesthetic choices, which affect Italian fashion and its codes over the last 20 years. The classics of the men's and women's wardrobe, the use of fabrics, the model and cut, the combination of accessories: the exhibition offers an exhaustive and exciting overview of the garments making our country so famous in the world.
The jacket that becomes a shirt in a romantic Claudia Gerini or the wonderful tailored suit of Marco Bocci, the cocktail dress worn by Sabrina Ferilli inspired by Italian famme fatale myth or the contrasting clothes’ textures choosen by a romantic and exuberant Patty Pravo, are just some example of infinite possibilities and combinations of fashion and style.
