Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2022 collection

Each collection by Daniel Roseberry for Schiaparelli is awaited with incredible interest, but reality always exceeds expectations. Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2022 collection is inspired by the “mythical high priestess”. According to the designer himself, this time he decided to abandon the volume and colour, but in fact, he was a little cunning: on the podium there was a place for accented shoulders, fluffy skirts, and wide-brimmed hats. Minimalistic silhouettes highlighted the curves of the female body and were framed by intricate gold designs.

 
Daniel Roseberry himself said philosophical words about his work:

“Designing this collection made me realize something else. There are designers who design because they love clothes. There are designers who make clothes because they love the craft, because they love people. There are designers whose work is indebted to fashion as a concept, or to glamour as a business. But I design in order to make people feel something. When clothes and craft and hair and music and the wearer are in harmony together, when they are all trying to communicate something, we can be reminded why we love fashion—why I love fashion. It isn’t for the celebrities. It isn’t for the likes. It isn’t for the reviews. It’s because, when it’s done right, when it has something to tell us, it can help us feel the inarticulable. It’s because it still has the power to move us.”

Anna Bova

Before we start describing the works of Anna Bova, we should introduce the artist herself. Anna is a versatile artist creating paintings, sculpture and mosaics. Anna was born in the Crimea, but was professionally educated in Moscow. Later she moved to France where she has been living for 15 years now. Our exhibition features her works on paper, stone sculptures and ceramics. We admire her desire to work with versatile materials using old and new techniques. Her work is always an experiment where the material itself aquires special significance.

The City like a Canvas

Before 5 years ago, hardly anyone heard about Penelles, a small village with a population of 500. It is located in the province of Leida and is surrounded by fields where local farmers grow corn. But now, it is annually visited by tens of thousands of tourists. What brings them here?

Walking along the streets of this tiny village is an art walk. You are totally unaware what might appear in front of your eyes at the next turn. Almost all the buildings in this village are adorned with the visions of some extremely talented graffiti and street artists. Even the interior of the Church of Penellas is decorated with a piece of street art!

Currently, Penellas boasts 112 works of graffiti art. They are located on the walls and the steps of the residential and office buildings, on the warehouses and fences. Very soon twelve new creations will be added to this collection. Through the month of May, the 6th Gar Gar Festival will take place here. If you decide to visit Penellas and see the so-called street art with your own eyes, please send us a photo of what inspires you.

MAITE BY LOLA CASADEMUNT Autumn 2021

The debut of the “MAITE BY LOLA CASADEMUNT Autumn 2021” collection at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Madrid was a complete success. This capsule collection is very British in its nature and is inspired by memories of the bohemian London Borough of Chelsea. The collection consists of versatile pieces that can be worn all year round, not just fall. But the brand’s DNA remains unchanged: complex colors, animal prints, logomania, attention to detail. Top model Nieves Álvares became the star of the show, which made it even more spectacular. We are looking forward to see the collection in stores!

Absolutely amazing!

Spanish freediver Ariadna Hafez performs underwater tango!
The performer made about 600 dives in five days of rehearsals, spending one and a half minute under water for each take (dive, dance, ascent) in the deepest pool in the world “Y40” (40 meters deep) near Padua, Italy. The spectacular video was created by Bastien Soleil (France).

QUANTUM PRAYER

Meet Oksana Mas – a contemporary artist and creative visionary whose work includes paintings, graphics, sculpture, mosaic and photography. She creates timeless masterpieces in search of a single spiritual code for humanity.

The project we are talking about today was first presented at the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013 as part of the GLASSTRESS exhibition. Oksana Mas has created a unique series of sculptures from car engines covered with Murano glass. The high temperature partially melts the solid metal, and the “liquid” glass fills the voids, making up an organic whole. The concept of the project implies that the power of human thought and prayer can work miracles. It all depends on how strong and sincere the desire is.

Oksana’s works have been sold at Sotheby’s, Christie’s and Phillips auctions, are presented in museum and private collections such as the Moscow Museum of Modern Art, BREUS Foundation, Deutsche Bank Collection, Copelouzos Family Art Museum, Capital Group Art Foundation and many others. Oksana Mas lives and works in Spain.

A collection of works by Oksana Mas will be presented at the exhibition of the ALÀBRIGA hotel starting in April.
