Architecture and fashion

Some days ago I was in a bookshop looking for an architecture photograph books and while I was browsing I recognize some elements quite familiar to me. Back at home I spent some time browsing on the net where I’ve possibly seen those elements. After few hours I found out how much fashion got over its borders and stolen from the architecture world. Don’t know if it was a specific fashion designers purpose, but there must be some connection between them and architects, at least they have in some way the same style. Of course my research was quite easy in Gareth Pugh case, since he is one of the most “architectural fashion designer”, maybe more in his earlier carrier then now, but still he has a strong personality. Structures and shapes stolen from architecture can be very interesting if they are put together in fashion, giving some kind of geometrical view of the human body.

Alcuni giorni fa ero in una libreria cercando alcuni libri fotografici di architettura e mentre sfogliavo alcuni di essi, ho riconosciuto alcuni elementi che mi erano abbastanza familiari. Tornato a casa ho passato un po di tempo navigando su internet cercando di capire dove avessi potuto vedere quegli elementi. Dopo qualche ora ho scoperto quanto la moda ha oltrepassato i propri confini rubando dal mondo dell’architettura. Non so se dietro c’è una volontà specifica degli stilisti, ma comunque sia esiste una connessione tra di loro e gli architetti, in qualche modo condividono un certo stile. Naturalmente la mia ricerca è stata più semplice nel caso di Gareth Pugh, visto che è uno degli stilisti più “architettonici”, forse più in passato che adesso, ma che comunque continua a mantenere una personalità forte. Strutture e forme comunque rubate dall’architettura possono essere davvero interessanti se combinate tra di loro nella moda, dando al corpo umano una visione anche geometrica.
