Cittadellarte

September 22 Cittadellarte will celebrate its first birthday and to celebrate these months of effort and work will give you a capsule collection that sees the collaboration of seven of the most talented emerging Italian designers, like Silvio Betterelli, Anna Ceccon (Moi Multiple), Maria De Ambrose (Serienumerica), Marta Forghieri, Katrin Lugbauer & Nora Bergher (Nature of Conflict), Jose Maria Nunes da Silva and Stephen Giralt Ughetti (CAMO). the capsule collection, which sees the participation of 50 best companies producing yarns and fabrics made in Italy, eco-friendly, will be unveiled in September in Biella with a perrmance-event and in Milan during fashion week on the occasion of the presentation of the spring-summer 2011 collections.

Although traditional and respected both in Europe and North America, designer Italian menswear Brioni, is not going well in the legs in recent times. In an attempt to turn the game around and reposition itself in the market, the brand has called a figure known from the fashion weeks, the stylish Justin O’shea (this guy here), to be its new creative director. The decision was surprising, since O’shea does not seem to have resume enough for this type of function, since up to the time his position was director of purchasing for e-commerce mytheresa.com however it seems that the idea was to bring someone without the vices of the market and try to give fresh air to the company, just do not know if this is what occurred…

fashion week

This week, Brioni has announced its new campaign starring none other than the rock band’s greatest success at the present time, Metallica. The feature is not any novelty, the fashion designer new york-based John Varvatos, notorious for his passion for rock, have already done campaigns with medallions of the music such as Alice Cooper, Kiss, and ZZ Top, among others, but with a better result, in my humble opinion.The photo with James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo the principle seemed to me a good balcony, but in the end the result looks a bit bland, I thought the art direction and the styling a little inspired. If the intention was to rejuvenate the brand or make it more funky, the effect was the contrary, the clothes have left the band more serious, looking like they were on the way to the graduation of their children, lacked glamour and relaxation. See below:

Another decision that seems to swim against the current, the change of the logo. The gothic font chosen is very generic, and retrograde, could have opted for something more striking, I do not think possible to recognize in this typology something that refers to an Italian brand of menswear created in 1945, not that the old logo had been there these things, but the current simply does not work.

Brioni

If the result was not very good, at least one thing they managed to draw the attention of the media! From fashion magazines to blogs, alternative music, now the new kids propaganda of Brioni, now remains to be seen whether the designer will make other changes that will take effect – what is known in fashion as “doing a Burberry” because of the turn which the English brand given at the beginning of the years 2000, making again reference and desire – and if the new creative director will be able to emblazon these initial decisions, by placing the Brioni back on track.

Perhaps you do not remember it, but the designer Italian Replay already had a store in Brazil, at rua Oscar Freire, where today is installed the Timberland. The jeans sold there were very expensive, a bermuda could cost easily more than 700 reais in 2010 (source), just before the bullet leave the country, very probably because of the high prices, even to those who could afford it, but preferred to buy in Europe, spending a quarter of that in the same item.

Now the Replay back to offer their products through a partnership with the C&A’s. OK, we know that is not exactly a piece of the designer, but a cheaper version of what they have in Europe, following the standards set by the brand, keeping moulds, trims and the concept behind the name, but always there remains the hope that it will be done a decent job and is worth the purchase.

The clothes in the collection has a spirit, urban and youthful, bringing, in addition to the well-known jeans, jackets with military-style, t-shirts with prints that are modern and knitwear to complement the combinations.

Here are some pieces of the collection Replay for C&A in the gallery below:

The prices are scaring many rival those of stores not so popular as well. The meager military goes for R$399,99, jeans by R$169,99 and a simple t-shirt can subtract R$69,99 of your hard-earned money. Seeing this side believe that the collection has two destinations: the wardrobe of who pays for everything with a card from the store, then you will not feel the thud of prices, or the macaws promotion after valentine’s day. We can only wait and see.

The collection REPLAY for C&A will be on sale in selected stores of the network in the whole of Brazil, from 17 may, and also in the virtual store (the cea.with.br).
