Margiela, the Hermès years Incontro con Kaat Debo
L’idea era di avere i due mondi di Martin – Maison Martin Margiela e Hermès – uno accanto all’altro. Si vede letteralmente il mondo in arancio e quello in bianco. Kaat Debo
Margiela ha cambiato il corso della moda – ma in modo sottile, sovversivo. Suzy Menkes
Mercoledì 26 aprile 2017 alle 18.30 in 10 Corso Como, Kaat Debo, direttore e curatore capo del MoMu, Museo della Moda di Anversa, presenterà Margiela, the Hermès years il libro che accompagna la mostra in corso al Museo della Moda di Anversa fino all’agosto 2017.
Fluido è una parola che amo, qualcosa di sospeso, fuori dal corpo, ha detto Martin Margiela. Designer di culto, noto per le sue idee d’avanguardia sin dalla sua prima collezione nel 1988, negli anni della collaborazione con Hermès, dal 1997 al 2003, è diventato l’arbiter dello chic francese contemporaneo. Martin è invisibile – ma è come l’ossigeno, invisibile e vitale. Lui ha portato una visione nuova a ciò che noi siamo, disse Jean-Louis Dumas.
Pubblicato da Lannoo, questo libro è nato in stretta collaborazione con Martin Margiela stesso, e include fotografie, documenti inediti e diverse testimonianze. Prefazioni di Suzy Menkes e Kaat Debo, saggi di Rebecca Arnold, Sarah Mower e Vincent Wierink, il volume include numerose interviste tra cui quelle con Sandrine e Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Jenny Meirens e Patrick Scallon.

Patrick and Victor Demarchelier photography exhibition
10 Corso Como Shanghai in collaboration with Camera Works is pleased to present the work of Patrick Demarchelier and his son Victor Demarchelier. The exhibition not only gives a comprehensive idea of the body of work of both artists but also points out the mutual artistic coinage. For the first time in Asia their collaborative work will be exhibited as well.
For multiple decades Patrick Demarchelier has been considered a leading photo artist within the fashion and nude genre. His works celebrate the top models’ beauty without suffocating their appearance in a construction of artificiality. While fashion photography usually works towards excesses to create distinction, he is leaving space for a certain genuine. Patrick Demarchelier’s photographic body of work stands out due to its perfection as well as his very own ease that is reflected both in his photographic eye and his pictorial language. Key element of his works is exactly this suggestion that is free of contemplation and calculation.
Glamour becomes real, reality becomes glamorous: This leitmotiv marks the father’s body of work as well as his son’s Victor Demarchelier. This approach towards photography does not only create unique photographs, but also a recognition value due to a constant change according to the latest subject. A particular awareness becomes clear to the beholder when reflecting either body of work. Patrick Demarchelier’s early work – together with his numerous main works presented in the exhibition – is considered to be the foundation of what will be expected of Victor Demarchelier in the future.
About Patrick Demarchelier
Patrick Demarchelier, born in 1943 near Paris, grew up with four brothers and his mother in Le Havre. For his 17th birthday, his stepfather bought him a Kodak camera, which sparked his enthusiasm for photography. A passion for the photographic profession evolved into setting a clear objective for his professional future. His curiosity and the desire for perfecting his photographic abilities made him move to Paris when he was twenty years old. While working in photo laboratories, he began perusing leading fashion magazines to study the visual language and aesthetics of prestigious photographers. Subsequently, Patrick Demarchelier advanced to one of the world’s most famous fashion photographers. His relocation to New York in 1975 accompanied his international breakthrough. Since the late 1970s, reputable fashion magazines like »Elle«, »Glamour«, »GQ«, »Mademoiselle«, »Vogue« or »Rolling Stone« have been publishing his works. Furthermore, Patrick Demarchelier has been working for prestigious international couture and jewelry houses, including Armani, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Dior, Versace or Yves Saint Laurent. The British Royal Family honored him especially when commissioning him, as the first non-British photographer, to portray a member of their family – Lady Diana. Patrick Demarchelier lives and works in New York.
About Victor Demarchelier
Victor Demarchelier, born and raised in New York, is the youngest son of Patrick Demarchelier. Just after Victor Demarchelier completed his economic studies, he started working in his father’s studio to learn about the complexity of photography. Within the following ten years Victor Demarchelier managed to pursue the successful path of his father just in a new generation. With an independent aesthetic which however is coined by his father, Victor Demarchelier now works for magazines including »Vogue«, »Interview«, »GQ«, »Harper’s Bazaar« and »V Magazine«. Victor Demarchelier lives and works in New York.

Incontro con Alexander Vreeland in occasione dell’uscita del volume Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman
The Bazaar Years 1936-1962
pubblicato da Rizzoli martedì 3 novembre
alle ore 18.00 in 10 Corso Como.
“Parte del mio successo come giornalista è dovuto alla mia audacia: non ho mai temuto di raccontare un evento, un fatto, un’atmosfera. Mi sono sempre immedesimata nel lettore finale. Era il mio lavoro. Credo di avere avuto sempre una visione chiara di cosa faceva piacere ai lettori: dare loro quello che… non sapevano di volere.”
Nel 1936 Carmel Snow, direttore di Harper’s Bazaar prese una decisione che cambiò per sempre la moda quando chiese a Diana Vreeland di entrare nella sua rivista. Diana Vreeland inaugurò la celebre rubrica “Perché no..?” E nel 1939, venne nominata la prima (ed unica) redattrice di moda del giornale- perché, come diceva spesso Richard Avedon, la Vreeland “inventava” la moda. Il libro Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman documenta tre decenni di Bazaar, divisi anno per anno. Ogni sezione si apre con tutte le dodici copertine della rivista seguite da una selezione di immagini che testimoniano la visione innovativa di Diana Vreeland e i suoi continui lavori con celebri fotografi come Richard Avedon, Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Lillian Bassman, Martin Munkacsi e George Hoyningen- Huene.
Questa monografia permette di vedere come lo sguardo attento di Diana Vreeland e la sua collaborazione con Carmel Snow e Alexey Brodovitch, il leggendario direttore artistico di Harpers’ Bazaar, abbiano cambiato l’immagine della donna moderna americana del ventesimo secolo. Con oltre 300 pagine e i commenti di sei tra i maggiori fashion leaders della moda di oggi, il volume Diana Vreeland: The Modern Woman ci racconta Diana Vreeland, un’ icona senza tempo, fonte di ispirazione continua.
Alexander Vreeland, nipote di Diana Vreeland, dopo una carriera trentennale nella moda e nel beauty, ha creato nel 2014 la linea Vreeland Parfums. Nel 2013 ha curato per Rizzoli il libro Memo Diana Vreeland.
