#SuzyPitti: Technological Culture - Italy’s Minister Creates A New Fusion
Florence looks beyond mere men’s fashion and embraces three ‘C’s”: concept, craft and a conundrum
Guest Nation China
With worldwide challenges, especially from China and its new Silk Road, Italy seems to be embracing the future, rather than fighting it. The enormous trade fair offered space to young and energetic Chinese designers, who were given a generous showcase - even if it is in an underground area which served as a war bunker.
So much of Italian fashion has been built on family businesses, although passing on from one generation to the next seems increasingly difficult in a highly competitive world. So it was good to see, after the fading and failing of the Roberto Cavalli brand, that his son is building a business of his own.
Working under the label RRR, Robert Cavalli used British Punk from his fashion training years in London, his love of nature and wild animals, and a worldwide audience to create what can only be described as a modernist version of his father’s vision.
That proves that for all the seismic changes in Italy, as it embraces high-tech alongside high-art, family can still play a useful part in fashion.
