Je Suis Responsable

“I forget that I’m responsible. But I am.”

 

Je Suis Responsable offers to the viewer a poetic, poignant experience while posing questions over humanity and existence. It’s the latest fashion film by award winning director Enrico Poli for the emerging brand, À forma. It was produced by Manufactory Productions and shot in several locations around Bologna, a town in northern Italy.

 

Je Suis Responsable (French for “I am responsible”) stands first and foremost for the designers’ statement to produce responsibly. However, the film takes its title from a monologue it quotes and homages. In Godard’s Vivre sa Vie, Anna Karina’s character tells a friend how she feels that “we are responsible for everything we do”. What does it actually mean to say that we are responsible?

 

The locations where the film is set constantly remind us of the power of nature; that given enough time, nature finds its way through what humans have neglected. It’s key to the central message of the film: artifice is immaterial, things fade, they lose their form and function. Humans are impermanent, only nature continues. It’s the biggest strength we know. Nature is time’s most wonderful and consistent expression.

 

“What moved us into action was the urgency to translate the global derealisation brought about by the pandemic into a form of art. Coronavirus has shown us how fragile we are and how easily things can fall apart: I can’t help but feel this is a wake up call. As we continue to live through this crisis with an awareness of our own fragility and as scientists warn us of the irrevocable damage Global Warming will have on society, preserving life on this planet has become the defining challenge of our time. It may already be too late to reverse this course, but I firmly believe the least we can do is try.”

When did you decide that fashion was your way? What is your earliest memory related to it?

 

I was born and raised in my mother’s boutique and tailors shop; it was here that I first felt an unbearable need for fashion, elegance and levity. Within the years I understood it’s the most immediate way to get closer to the status we’ve been aspiring for since we were young: after all, we only are our true selves when we’re naked or under the shower; besides that, we just dress up as who we would want to be. And this goes both for housewives and lawyers.

 

 

What does it mean to be a trans woman today in fashion and in Italy?

 

Trans lives in general have to take account of other’s prejudices, in every sector. Also within the fashion industry, which is obviously a gold cage at almost exclusive gay use, and we (really few) have to struggle way more to get to things that for others might be often expected and given for granted.

What would you change about this industry to make it truly inclusive, beyond the often façade claims on social media?

 

This is a complex question that would require specific studies on the subject matter. What I, independently of my lack of knowledge in the field, would want to succeed is talent – which is not strictly related to “connections”. Italy is still very attached to this mentality, it’s probably part of our dna, I don’t think it will change, at least not immediately.

 

 

During the just-concluded edition of the Sanremo Festival, you dressed Achille Lauro. Already last year, his eccentric stage presence and the artistic looks curated by Alessandro Michele had been harshly criticized and misunderstood. This year, even some members of the Church have spoken harshly after the symbolic kiss on stage between Achille and his producer Boss Doms. Do you think that musical icons as Lauro can really contribute to the breaking of homophobic retrograde cultural barriers in a country as traditionalist as Italy?

 

Starting by saying that Achille Lauro wore a pair of shoes from my collection which Nick Cerioni, his stylist, chose for him, I have to say that – despite being all references tied to 70’s stars (from David Bowie to Renato Zero) – I believe a new energy in a conservative theatre like the Ariston just lightened a long heavy show. I’ve seen so many alternative couples this year…will it be a new trend?

You are a multifaceted character, you will soon launch a series of ceramics and objects born from the Sicilian tradition filtered by your creative eye. Where does this project come from?

 

One thing a lot of people don’t know about me – distracted by my shoe collections or my styling work – is that, many years ago in Syracuse, I attended Art Institute specializing in plastic art decoration. Conceiving a ceramics collection was immediately thrilling to me and I realised something I had studied with great passion.

 

 

Milan is your professional headquarter and the city from which you were adopted, but your origins are Sicilian. What does it mean to be Sicilian for you and how do you see the present and the future of this beautiful island?

 

I’m a genuine Sicilian who has established in Milan many years ago. Here I found work, love, I have a house…but my roots are in Sicily, I always go back, I have family. My ceramics collection will be produced between Caltagirone and Noto, I’m developing a series of activities that will allow me to enjoy my beloved land way more. Obviously my Milanese reality will continue to stay – as in all respectable adoptions, Noto is were I was born, but Milan is were I grew up, it’s my full-fledged mother.

In which other fields, besides fashion and design, would you like to range?

 

Other than my shoe collections and my collaborations as a stylist, I also design settees for a renewed Italian company , I’ve just finished a capsule collection that will be on sale this Spring/Summer 2021 for a famous Italian brand, I’m designing along with my architect two villas in Sicily, I have just signed a contract with a record label for a new Italian singer (very talented)…I would like to do more, way more even if honestly I think it’s already ok, don’t you think?

 

 

The line of shoes you created was born from your, and many models, personal need: namely the lack of aesthetically relevant footwear above a certain size. Are there any other needs that you have not yet answered through your brand?

 

My collection was born from a very serious logistic issue: the lack of cool footwear over size 40. Obviously I also sell classic sizes, I would love to also develop an accessory line and, why not, clothing, but given the moment we’re living…it’s better to remain with our feet on the ground and be thankful to have survived one of the worst moments ever happened. Let’s talk about it next year! A sincere hug and thanks to all readers of CAP74024 ❤️

Fear and Freedom

FEAR AND

FREEDOM


"My name is Maria Kazikhanov. I'm a Russian photographer/filmmaker living in NYC. In support of political prisoners in Russia (ans also in Belarus) my team and I made an Art Project - Fear and Freedom.

With this project we want to bring attention to what is happening in Russia right now - that thousands of people are being arrested, poisoned, jailed and tortured just for having a different political opinion or different look, for posting and reposting in social media, for being on the street at a wrong time and even for being silent.

This project is very personal to me beacause my husband was severely beaten for being on the street at the wrong time and tortured by Russian police for wrong nationality... I wish I could come out to the peaceful protest in Russia, but as soon as we come back we will be arrested for having a different political opinion, for believing in freedom. So the best I can do is this project to let the world know that thousands of people are suffering in Russian prisons, right now..."

Camilla Filippi

Actress Camilla Filippi has been present in our memory for almost 20 years, but she already started as a young girl, with commercial spots (as the one for Barilla, when she was just 12 years old, in 1993, where she appears, obviously around a laden table, together with an American guest, Kevin Sorbo, who later became famous as the Hercules on small screens, ed). How did the desire to devote yourself to the “seventh art” come about?

At school. When the schools still worked (laughs). I attended an experimental school, three days per week, in the afternoon, there were activities related to theater, visual education, computer technology. The passion was born there, and as a result I told my mother that I wanted to become an actress: a choice she supported, even though I was not part of a family linked in any way to the show business.

An admirable choice… Shouldn’t that be, after all, the role of a parent? Supporting children no matter how remote those choices may seem to us? 

I was also very young and I am convinced that when you are 20, if you have a dream, after high school, it does not cost too much to try making it come true, to try to see how it goes. Even if it goes wrong, you have a life ahead to get back on the tracks…

The quality of your career path is in your eclecticism: you acted in films designed for TV, TV series, cinema’s movies, in comic and dramatic roles: what attracts you to a character? How do you choose the roles that belong to you? 

Let’s dispel a myth: there are few actors who choose which roles to play. Of course, there are things that I don’t do, roles that I know won’t belong to me and so I don’t even go to auditions. But otherwise, we always try to give complexity and nuances to the character, regardless of the type of production. Being an actor means putting yourself in someone else’s shoes, experiencing tragedies or the most banal difficulties, eviscerating them.

Was there a character where you underestimated the psychological impact of its role or where you can say, after all, that you weren’t ready for? 

I certainly underestimated the emotional impact of Stella, the protagonist of “La Stanza” (a thriller with horror traits that begins with the protagonist in a wedding dress, convinced to take her own life and stopped by a providential ringing at the door, ed). Psychologically it was very heavy. And she made me even more aware than before, on the fact that going into analysis is crucial, and should become natural for everyone, like putting on underwear before leaving the house.

After the Weinstein scandal, which broke out in 2015, a lot has changed, at least in appearance, in the world of Hollywood cinema. As an actress and woman with a successful career, what would you recommend to a young girl who would like to pursue your profession? 

I would advise her to study, but also to live, because we tell stories about human beings, so the more personal experience you have, the greater your cultural and emotional baggage is, and the more we enrich our characters. And, another equally important thing I’d say to her, is to never be afraid to express her opinion.

And to a younger yourself, with today’s experience, would you recommend anything? 

I would tell her that it is okay: I have been always very consistent in my choices, I have been strong, thanks to my family formation: I was educated in dignity. Today a lot of communication and promotion of one’s work also passes through social media.

What is your relationship with them?

I only use Instagram, I left everything else. If it weren’t anachronistic, I wouldn’t use that either. But it has a ‘political’ value when there is a following. I believe that unfortunately the great fault of social media is having set free a certain neglect of ignorance. We are no longer ashamed of it. A thing that scares me but which unfortunately we have to live with. As a young girl I often felt like a goat, I tended to shut up if I didn’t know what we were talking about, then I went to inform myself, studying, to fill what I saw as gaps. A task that nowadays should belong to the school. It should, at least…

Recent Golden Globes nominations, thanks to the pandemic, given up in the face of the power of products made by Amazon and Netflix, to which the Hollywood Academy waged a ruthless war in recent years. Do you find that there are qualitative differences between productions created for cinema and those made for and often by the giants of streaming distribution? 

Right now I don’t think there is a qualitative or narrative difference. The approach I have, as an actress, is the same, I put the same quality into it. Of course, as a spectator the experience is different, even if after a year of pandemic, thanks to the arrival of high quality serial products, I realized that sitting on the couch and spending an hour and a half in front of the screen is complex. I miss a lot going to the cinema as a spectator, I don’t even remember the last film I saw in the hall anymore…

And at home instead? 

“Padre Nostro”, with Pierfrancesco Favino. I also started to watch the second season of “Big Little Lies”, I find it a masterpiece, because it is a project realized only by women. It would be wonderful to do something similar in Italy, but on one hand there is a certain snobbery, on the other we are far behind: the woman in Italian products, film or television, is always someone’s mother, wife, sister.

Is Italian cinema still very macho? 

I’ll tell you something: in “La Stanza” movie, I am very traumatized by events, without make-up tricks, messy hair. On the narrative side, it would have been illogical to play that role fully dressed and made up, after all. Two different men I know, watching the film, then told me: «Damn! How ugly they made you». They would never even thought that of a man. They would compliment him on how he got into the part. And the saddest thing is that it came out from two extremely intelligent people. Just to tell you which level we are in.

There’s not just cinema in your life. You also realized exhibitions at Palazzo Collicola (#psychedelicbreakfast, in 2015), you wrote a book (“La Sorella Sbagliata”, Harper Collins, in 2020, where she tackles disability starting from a personal and family story, ed). Willingness to catharsis or to express yourself through other arts?

I always thought that having chosen a specific path since I was a young girl did not mean foreclosing on the others. I am constantly looking for new ways to come up with my ideas, but I was quite afraid of “not being enough”. In that sense, my husband, who supported me a lot, was crucial, repeating to me the thing that my mother also often said to me: «at most they will say no to you». So now I’m writing the second book.

Before going to the set for the first take, or on the occasion of an important event, do you have any rituals? 

No, I’m not superstitious at all. In order to respect the others, however, I avoid wearing purple, a color that is still very ostracized in cinema. There are some directors who send you back to the dressing room to change yourself if they see you arriving on set with something of that color.

Speaking about clothes, how important are they in defining the character, and how important are they in your private life? 

For my work they are fundamental. When Massimo Parrini, the costume designer of “La Stanza”, pulled out the wedding dress that you see in the first scene, I thought he already defined the character. My role is related to water, so we worked a lot on transparencies and cold colors.

The wardrobe helps to outline the role in a fundamental way. In private life, I think fashion is another way of expressing one’s personality: some maisons create art, rather than clothes. Assuming that this past year hasn’t made us better, what did it teach you? 

It taught me that I had too many things and that my environmental impact had to be reduced. I have no more detergents: I make soap at home, I buy vinegar to clean the windows and I plan the weekly shopping on Mondays, to avoid waste. These are small attentions that take longer to say than to do. We could spend less time on to our smartphones on social media, and dedicate ourselves to something else: to make 3 dispensers of 250 ml of detergent, you need just a bar of Marseille soap and 45 minutes of time, if you are really a beginner. And of course I didn’t buy anything during the sales period. If this pandemic frightened us, just think about 2050.

What will you do as soon as you can get out? 

Go back to the restaurant. I like to go and try the starred restaurants around Italy, I went to Joia in Milan, the first starry vegetarian restaurant in Europe, and it was a 5 stars experience. On the plate it looked like it was dear meet and instead it was watermelon.

Are you passionate about cooking? 

I find that it represents the sense of family, as a community, which you want to take care of with food. In fact, my kitchen is bigger than my living room.

If you think about it, even during a dinner, you spend more time in the first room than in the second. 

I taught my children to cook, I want them to be independent. The eldest has a talented hand, but he lacks in patience: if a recipe is tasty the first time, the second he goes off the cuff without consulting the doses. However, some of his recipes entered the fixed menu at home, such as chicken slices breaded with cornflakes.

The Italian film tradition is full of films that take place around a table: which is his favorite? 

“La Grande Abbuffata”, no doubt.

Your husband is a director, so you will often confront each other on the matter. Isn’t it a bit difficult to take “the job” also at home, in front of the set table? 

I would not have been able to be with a person who does not work in my environment, because I would not have felt fully understood, we team up. I assure you, however, that with two boys, two cats and a dog, as soon as you enter the door, there is no more time to think about much else.

Archivio Slam Jam Curated by Nationhood

Over 30 years since its establishment, Slam Jam, street culture brand leader, is opening the doors of its archive for the first time with an exclusive project devised by Nationhood.

Founded by Luca Benini in 1989, Slam Jam was born to serve the underground long before the term “streetwear” existed, becoming the first Italian importer of then unknown brands such as Stüssy. From its headquarter in Ferrara to the fashion capital of Milan, Slam Jam honed a unique and highly distinctive style guided by art, music and clubbing, connecting tribes of like-minded people across the world.

 

 

 

Nationhood is a multidisciplinary studio founded by Achille Filipponi and Matteo Milaneschi. Its goal is to generate new codes and languages in the field of cultural communication, focusing on editorial design. The studio partners with international brands and cultural institutions. Its activities span from the creation of magazines and photography books, through the creative management of digital projects, to curatorship.

The project of the Slam Jam Archivio curated by Nationhood comprises a new location in Slam Jam’s headquarters in Ferrara, and a consultable online atlas stemming from an experimental publishing plan focused on the brand’s cultural heritage.

The private collection of Mr. Benini is now a new cultural resource with its own digital platform, a long list of publications, and various offline off-shoot activities hinging on visual art and culture. Nationhood designed an infinite scroll to connect different contents in a sequence of images, a collision of Lo-Fi cinema and visual brutalism aesthetic. The upshot is a new digital device showing the anthropology of the look and underground subcultures of which Luca Benini was a founding presence: from clubbing on the Riviera Romagnola, London and NY in the early nineties, to the international hip-hop scene and Japan’s noughties fashion neo- avant-garde.

 

 

 

The hyper-photographic atlas is mixed with soundscapes from the around 10,000 vinyls in the collection, offering up the archive in a visual stream that confirms the potential lyricism of chaos and cyberspace as the symbolic place of a new digital romanticism.

The project represents an worthwhile opportunity for all the longtime Slam Jam fans, as well as an opportunity for young fans of urban culture and streetwear, to understand the origins of this current trend which is now so crucial in the balance of the fashion system and of contemporary audio-visual culture.

Phoenix Rising

Bohan Phoenix is an Chinese-American born musician that has been gaining traction in the Chinese Hip-Hop community, as well as the American market.

 

Bohan has a unique approach to his music – he blends Chinese culture with American Hip-Hop and connects the two cultures through his tasteful ear and impressive thought process.

 

Photographer Bryan Tormey and Bohan Phoenix took a trip from NYC to LA while listening, creating, and processing Bohan’s album and drawing connections their land shares with the Chinese way of life.

 

To their amazement – they found themselves immersed in Native Navajo land when arriving out west in America and stunned by their findings. The Native American culture was closely tied to Chinese life by way of Serbia and down through the Americas. They began learning about these close connections and found amazing people and stories along the way.

 

“Phoenix Rising” reflects their journey and findings of Native Navajo culture and their close ties to American-Chinese culture and how close they all are as a people. The story embodies the path Bohan has been creating, drawing parallels between American culture and his native Chinese background, with the hope to prosper despite our failures and rise from catastrophe – stronger, smarter and more powerful than ever.

Your Dream is a Word Away

In turbulent times, such as those we live in, culture represents a safe place, a bulwark with no borders, as well as a space for escape.

 

Words are messages, connections and creation of meaning. Their immense power can lead us to reality; their previous weight can make us dream. If “verba volant, scripta manent” is true, the future – in order to be better – will need well-written words, rather than just beautiful words.

Tomi Adeyemi in VALENTINO, March 1st 2020, Paris

In the wake of this idea, Valentino continues its initiatives in support of art and culture, launching the ‘The Writer’s Roadmap’ project. Fifty international aspiring authors-to-be students will be supported in their training through a series of creative workshops chaired by the American-Nigerian writer Tomi Adeyemi, friend of the Maison Valentino, winner of the Hugo and Nebula awards and member of TIME 100 authors. The students were selected after they shared a post on their Instagram accounts explaining their backgrounds, their passion and why they would like to be a part of the course. Submissions have been collected and accepted through December 2, 2020 and the winners were announced on the following day December 3rd.

 

After graduating at Harvard University with a degree in English literature, Tomi Adeyemi continued her studies in Salvador, focusing on West African mythology, religion and culture. Her career soared in 2018, when her first novel ‘Children of Blood and Bone’ landed the top of The New York Times bestsellers’ list. A fantasy book aimed at an audience of young adults, ‘Children of Blood and Bone’ is able to capture readers with a classic tòpoi of the genre like magic, and at the same time surprise them with more real, explicit and sometimes violent traits. Disney and Lucasfilm confirmed the start of production of a film adaptation of the book.

Proper training is essential for a talent to flourish. For this reason, the writing classes are focused on organizing the creative process of each student, on the acquisition of tips and tricks directly provided by Tomi, and in general on encouraging them to pursue their dream of becoming authors. 

#WritersRoadmapxValentino is the hashtag used to launch the initiative on social media. It has been made possible thanks to scholarships granted to selected participants, supported by Valentino. 

The Italian House Valentino has always been committed to developing talents and promoting cultural diversity. Like never before, we need to rediscover a sense of belonging and to create an active community that benefits everyone. And this creative writing project represents a small step in defining a new standard for the education of the future. 

Whether it’s a fantasy story, an intimate novel or simple thoughts written down by hand in a notebook illuminated by the warm light of a bedroom, this initiative promoted by Valentino and led by Tomi Adeyemi guarantees concrete help in making what today is still perceived as a dream into reality: to live by writing.

Red Moon

Photography duo Arturo Bamboo release their third publication ‘RED MOON’. The images are a collection of blurry landscapes, silhouettes and vague abstracts all drenched in a mysterious red and black, photographed over the summer of 2020.

RED MOON acts as a personal album of dream-like memories and feels like something between an utopia and a dystopia. The publication was shot on a reverse-rolled color negative film to emphasise the raw beauty of the subjects – staring at the images shows details which are at first hidden for the eye.

RED
Red is the color of fire and blood, it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love. Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure.

MOON
The Moon is a gravity rounded astronomical body of planetary-mass, rocky silicate composition and without significant atmosphere, hydrosphere or magnetic field. It is orbiting the planet Earth of the inner Solar System, as Earth’s only natural satellite. Its surface gravity is about a sixth of Earth’s with 0.1654 g.

Yoga Studios Are the New Country Club

The concept of French Touch is the representation of Nothing, of a turbo-capitalist and completely postmodern society. Everything is based on removing the meaning of the term French Touch, no longer understood as a musical genre, but as a lifestyle, as the essence of a country that has always held The Coolness, but which is often this excessive attention to lifestyle to remove consistency from reality. The clue of this concept is expressed by Yoga, the coolest sport for body and soul.

 

As The Point Magazine said: “Yoga speaks to something innately excitable in the European cultural imagination: the seductive idea that you can improve yourself in the interest of all humanity. Stretch your legs, stretch your soul. It’s cosmopolitan egotism: build a better you, build a better planet. “
