Antonio Berardi Designs Capsule for Marina Rinaldi

BERARDI’S TAKE: Marina Rinaldi unveiled during Milan Fashion Week a capsule designed by Antonio Berardi, who said the experience was “an interesting learning curve,” as it allowed him to rethink his style and aesthetics on different body types.
Berardi’s sensual lacing inspired by corsets were placed on the back of jackets and on the sides of skirts and pencil dresses, and silk chiffon floor-lengths dresses or blouses were printed with a pattern reminiscent of the marbled perfumed papers that used to line drawers.
“My mother used to wear Marina Rinaldi, so I was thrilled to be asked to collaborate,” Berardi said. “I always try to bring out the best in a woman, to have respect, so the looks are never too vulgar or out there. These are 10 pieces meant to last for more than one season and to be mixed and matched, worn from day to evening.”
Berardi has always worked with strong colors and here, too, he used French blue, a pill-box red or flame, as he described it, and black. “Women like bright colors,” he contended.
Jackets with trompe-l’oeil lapels were worn with gloves embellished with a chain-bijou appliqué, a detail that, similarly to the golden multichain necklaces, are important

Marina Moscone RTW Fall 2020

“Everyone knows I’m a minimalist, but I think it’s important to convey, too, that being modern doesn’t have to be bare and minimal,” Marina Moscone explained after her intimate and divine fall show, set once again at The Player’s Club in Gramercy Park. Known for tailoring, both sharp and loose, as well as twisted draping and bias slipdressing, Moscone wanted to convey modernist Seventies glamour, the “Anjelica Huston wearing Halston,” type in her designs. Elegant tuxedo dressing came in the form of double-faced, heavy wool suiting and sweeping smoking jackets with bijoux buttons; slinky, twisted slips and tunics also incorporated intertwined, diamanté details. 
The designer evolved her signature solid tunic-over-pant looks into double-faced Scottish Donegal hand-knit sweaters atop dresses with pleated and lace-trimmed hems while familiar, fluid separates were paired with nubby alpaca sherpa topcoats with upcycled mink collars. This importance of tactility goes hand-in-hand with the prominence of artistry within Moscone’s collections. For fall, burnout-velvet stemmed roses and solid black velvet floating panels adorned slips (as well as a singular jade pantsuit) while long, hanging strands were hand-pulled through embroidered leopard patterned transparent organza voile gowns, all of which felt more refined than her prior, more crafty (but still polished) takes.

Marina Abramovic Is ‘Pissed’ At Jay Z, Says He ‘Completely Used’ Her

The performance art world and the hip-hop community merged in 2013 when Marina Abramovic collaborated with Jay Z. Now, however, the Godmother of Performance Art isn’t very happy with the rapper.

For Jay Z’s “Picasso Baby” music video, Hov adapted Abramovic’s 2010 MoMA retrospective, “The Artist Is Present,” by performing the song for six hours straight in New York’s Pace Gallery in front of celebrities and fans. Abramovic appeared in the video and even had what seemed to be a poignant head-touching moment with the rapper, but now she says she’s “pissed by” the aftermath of their collaboration. In an interview with Spike magazine, Abramovic said she only worked with Jay Z on one condition: “That he would help my institute.” Yet she claims “he didn’t.”

Abramovic says that Jay Z was supposed to help with her self-titled performance institute and museum space, which Lady Gaga worked with her on, much to the performance artist’s satisfaction. “He just completely used me,” Abramovic told Spike.

Although the performance artist, who most recently had a retrospective at SESC Pompéia in São Paulo, doesn’t regret her work with the “Glory” rapper, she won’t do it again. “In the end, it was only a one-way transaction,” she said. “I will never do it again, that I can say. Never.”

Whether that means Abramovic will never work with Jay Z again specifically or major celebrities in general remains to be seen. We know those Lars Von Trier rumors weren’t true (as she confirmed to The Huffington Post last November), but we can expect some film projects from the artist in the future.
