The Architectural White Shirt | Valentina Cirasola |Designer

Girl-Pink-Green-1aWelcome to a new episode of Friday Fashion.
A white shirt is as common as one makes it, or a piece of architectural work. A white shirt builds your figure to an elevated elegance or swallows your beauty. A white shirt must speak the language of beauty and not cover the body.

Gianfranco Ferre'
Italian designer Gianfranco Ferre’ considered the architect of fashion, designed striking white shirts, each with its own character and message. Gianfranco Ferre’ passed away in 2007 and now the Italian Textile Museum Foundation in Prato together with Gianfranco Ferré Foundation organized in Milano an exhibition in homage to the “architect” designer of the white shirt. “There are twenty-seven white shirts, a stunning sequence of sartorial masterpieces, bearing silent witness to twenty years of absolutely ingenious and peerless creativity.” – says the museum’s director. The exhibit runs from March 10 to April 1, 2015 and there are plans for the exhibit to travel to the U.S., to Phoenix and perhaps Los Angeles and Chicago.

Gianfranco Ferre’ took inspiration from history, art, nature, poetry, architecture and built the white shirts on sensuality, curves and femininity. Watch his work here:


“Talking about my white shirts is all too easy. It’s all too easy to declare a love that covers the span of my creative path. A hallmark – perhaps the ultimate signature – of my style, which enfolds a constant pursuit of innovation and a no less unfailing love of tradition. Story in motion. Tradition in the form of the men’s shirt, ever-present and encoded element of the wardrobe. That tickled my fancy for invention, incited my propensity for rethinking the tenets of elegance and style in an interplay of pure fantasy and contemporary design. Read with sense of glamour and poetry, freedom and energy, the formal and quasi-immutable white shirt took on an infinity of identities, a multiplicity of inflections. To the point of becoming, I believe, a must of modern-day femininity… This process always entails a keen rethinking of shapes. The white blouse is never the same yet always unmistakable. It may be light and floaty, flawlessly severe (if a mannish cut remains), as sumptuously enveloping as a cloud, as skinny and snug as a bodysuit. Some parts, primarily collar and cuffs, can become emphatic; others expressly lose ‘force’ and may even disappear (back, shoulders, sleeves). The blouse comes with precious lace and embroidery; turns sexy thanks to the use of sheer fabrics; acquires ultra importance with gorgeous ruffles and ruches. It billows delicately with every motion, almost free of gravity. It frames the face like a fabulous corolla. It sculpts the body in a slick second-skin mode. It is the eclectic interpreter of all types of materials: sheer organza, crisp taffeta, glossy satin. Duchesse, poplin, chiffon, georgette, too…”
Gianfranco Ferré, notes (quote credit given to the author)

If you are in Milano at this time, make an effort to visit the exhibit, it will be an inspiring experience, Ciao,
Valentina
