OVERALL-Born as a working dress in second half of 18th Century Very strong fabric, bib kept by shoulder straps and large trousers make this dress particularly comfortable and perfect for factory workers and miners. Around 40’s it starts shyly to get in fashion world to receive much more consents in the 60’s, it imposes itself very strongly in the 70’s with large flared trousers and during the 90’s with grunge style.

 SALOPETTE-Nasce come indumento da lavoro nella seconda metà dell’Ottocento.Il tessuto resistente, la pettorina mantenuta dalle bretelle e i pantaloni ampi rendono infatti questo indumento particolarmente comodo e adatto ai lavori in fabbrica e nelle miniere. Intorno agli anni ’40 comincia timidamente ad entrare nel mondo della moda per poi ricevere consensi sempre più ampi dagli anni ’60, si afferma prepotentemente negli anni ’70 con ampi pantaloni a zampa e nei ’90 con lo stile grunge.

John French  was an English fashion and portrait photographer. He was born in Edmonton, London,  in 1907. French originally trained and worked as a commercial artist, becoming a photographic director in an advertising studio just before World War II, during which he served as an officer in the Grenadier Guards. In 1948 he founded his own photography studio.  Working originally with the Daily Express he pioneered a new form of fashion photography suited to reproduction in newsprint, involving where possible reflected natural light and low contrast. He also undertook portrait photography. French was one of London’s top fashion photographers of the 1950s and 1960s. He devoted much attention to the set and posing of his models, but left the actual triggering of the shutter to assistants, amongst whom were Terence Donovan and David Bailey.
The models he worked with included the most famous of the time and many were debutantes who went on to become well-known society figures. John persuaded the art editors of the national press to use his flawlessly lit images of top models and his work appeared in virtually every newspaper and magazine. After his death the John French's archive was donated by his wife, the fashion journalist Vere Denning, to the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
He was once described as "the man who brought a new glamour to fashion photography". John French essentially captured elegance. Unlike other photographers of the early 1960s he had a certain magic, incorporating both a sense of 1950s refinement whilst also showcasing contemporary 1960s style and muses - Jean Shrimpton being just one.
Through photography of French, fashion is free of static poses, imposed by the clichés of the time dictated by Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, to focus on freedom of expression and on the naturalness of the shots. His images are characterized by a compositional research tending to perfection, with an obvious care and attention to detail and the poses of the models within the structure. Using a black and white sweet, the British photographer invents an innovative style and fresh that exploits the natural lights to create structured lines essential that emphasize the contrasts and chiaroscuro.

I spent the last two days swimming, sleeping and eating. After a year of super work I deserve some rest, so if  I'll not always be on time with my posts, I'm sorry but I enjoy my free time swinging on the waves.❤️❤️❤️

Thomas Tait is is a young Canadian designer graduated at Central Saint Martins in London.
Tait, who was the youngest student ever to complete Central Saint Martins’ MA Fashion course, has received critical acclaim for his signature blend of conceptual couture and hardcore tailoring. He won the LVMH Young Fashion Designer Prize and won the Emerging Womenswear Designer at the British Fashion Awards.
His aesthetic transposes effortlessly onto sportswear inflected collections and more formal tailoring and construction. His collections are invariably exercises in the cognitive consideration of proportion, cut, form and texture, and offer a fully realised, probed and tested product of his inspiration points and references.
 For the next winter Tait has leaned toward a minimalist aesthetic, he infused some romanticism into his sleek silhouettes and the Eastern influences were even more refined than last season.

My last work as costume designer.
This show directed by  Pierpaolo Sepe  and Andrea Renzi part from theatrical adaptation that the same Robin Maugham realized in 1958 and crosses with the atmosphere of the film that in the '60s Joseph Losey realised with Harold Pinter script.
I enjoyed creating  bourgeois and not bourgeois characters with  original  or revisited sixties outfits.
