Short  sentences and hidden incitements. “Every cool girl is half boy” is the very first manifest of the Italian brand Blazé Milano. Delfina, Sole e Corrada (unusual names as the unexpected label) have clear ideas; transforming the ever-green outerwear in a modern but classic way to dress. Blazé Milano, founded in 2016 links comfort, precious textiles and unmistakable Italian taste.

The jacket, symbol of male elegance and charm, is taken apart, interpreted, studied and at the end realized for her. Starting from the centerpiece of their fathers’ closet and from theier everyday uniforms, the designers imagine and project jackets for every occasion, from the smoking till the casual outfit.

Perfectly conscious and grateful to the key role that this garment has taken in the costume  history, Delfina, Sole e Corrada travel to the Savile Row time moving towards the jacket usage for sport activities like tennis or cricket arriving to the must have clothing according to Coco Chanel.

Francesca Castagnacci

18 Febbraio 2017

 

Her drawings are visionary and evoking, inspired by bright and glossy color palettes. Francesca Castagnacci founded the brand which takes her name in Florence in 2014 following her desire to put herself to the test. In love with her city and fascinated by art Francesca follows the creative flair that belongs to her turning a big challenge into a great success.

From her sketches details and colors are considered in a overall view which gives rise to unique accessories. Lines are clear and geometric, developed on shapes’ contrast. The stiff constructions’ asymmetry are shells revealing uncommon materials and uneven surfaces while matching soft and refined leather. Candy-pink, orange and sky-blue palettes set against precious finishing made of gold or coated-with-rubber.

Every collection’s creation is marked with an electromagnetic TAG; a unique fingerprint is matched with a smartphone app which spreads and duplicates via NFC technology special contents and stands for the object’s  guarantee.

The must-have accessory of the spring-summer 2017 collection is the #MNN bag. It’s worn wedged between the fingers thanks to a distinctive gap on top. The clutch is rounded and rigid shaped and it’s possible to wear it with a colored leather-covered bangle. Francesca Castagnacci has designed it also using the chic-pluriball surface, a stitched leather effect moving the intense bags’ outer layer.
