70's TIROL CAPE

The cape is a shorter version of the mantel, devoid of longitudinal cuts for the arms. In various lengths and in different fabrics it was fashionable at the end of the nineteenth century and in the 50s and 70s.  Franca Sozzani wrote for Vogue Encyclo: "The cape has always exerted a mysterious and magical appeal. Beginning with fairy tales in which the handsome prince arrives on a white horse, dressed in a flowing blue cape. Obviously. All throughout fashion and costume history, capes and mantles of every sort have played a role in the clothing of every population. In the Victorian age, capes and wraps, sometimes embroidered or with paisley motifs for women, were alternated with black, fur-lined capes for men. From 1910, the cape began to come into its moment. Paul Poiret was definitely one of the first tailors responsible for the transformation of the cape, playing with its shape in various forms".

 La Cappa è una versione più corta della mantella, priva di tagli longitudinale per le braccia. In varie lunghezze e in tessuti diversi è stata di moda alla fine del diciannovesimo secolo e tra gli anni '50 e '70.  La compianta Franca Sozzani ha scritto per l'enciclopedia di Vogue: "La mantella esercita da sempre una magia e un misterioso fascino. A cominciare dalle favole per bambini in cui il principe azzurro arriva a cavallo di un bianco destriero e con un mantello azzurro. In tutti i percorsi storici della moda e del costume mantelle di ogni tipo si sono alternati nell'abbigliamento di ogni popolo. Nell'epoca Vittoriana il mantello o le mantelline anche ricamate o con disegni paisley per le donne si alternano a quelle nere e foderate di pelliccia per gli uomini. Dall'inizio del 1910 la mantella conosce un momento di grande fulgore. Paul Poiret è sicuramente uno dei primi sarti a cimentarsi nel cambio delle forme e giocherà attorno alla cappa in modi diversi.

FRANCA SOZZANI

"Today there is not just one style. I think people should buy more mirrors than clothes, to see themselves before going out ... but I think that clothes need to correspond to one's own personality. That is style."- Franca Sozzani  (20/1/50-22/12/16)

BEST LOOKS IN VENICE

A selection of outfits that I liked in this edition of Venice Film Festival.
All Elisa Sednaoui's outfits are perfect. I like in Trussardi, Burberry, Ferretti and Armani Privé
Tilda Swinton: The most elegant in Lanvin and Haider Ackermann. I also like the haircut
Valentino and Prada for Dakota Johnson, (this pink dress by Prada reminds me of  simplicity and elegance of pink Ralph Lauren gown worn by Gwyneth Paltrow to 71' Oscar Ceremony). 

 Very nice Stecey Martin in Miu Miu mini-dresses
Anna Mouglalis does well to never betray Chanel. Amazing Anita Caprioli in Givenchy. Good choice this Ferretti dress for Fiammetta Cicogna. Always bright Franca Sozzani in Valentino.
All sparkling: Hilary Rhoda in Kaufman Franco, Kim Feenstra in Blumarine, Kristen Stewart in Chanel Couture, Laura Bailey in Blugirl



White upstanding for the Negin Mirsalehi in Philosophy by Lorenzo Serafini and for Lou De Laage in Prada.
Most precious the white Prada gown worn by Diane Kruger and the white Dolce&Gabbana gown worn by  Elizabeth Banks

Valentino's gowns worn by Alba Rohrwacher are wonderful
