The theme of the event “Limited/Unlimited” is Sculptural and an iconic bag will be shown: “Elefante”, a demi-couture bag, entirely handmade, in soft plongé nappa. Arnoldo][Battois will participate from 6th to 9th July to the event Limited/Unlimited, organized by AltaRoma at Complesso Monumentale di S. Spirito in Sassia – Rome.
LIMITED/UNLIMITED is the project/showcase developed by Silvia Venturini Fendi to represent the new soul ofAltaroma. The event has been conceived as an international platform on which designers are given a chance to express their creativity in total freedom.
This edition will be enriched by a partnership with two important international brands:
Fendi and Valentino and further underscores the link between fashion and art. The theme ‘SCULPTURAL’ will act as a guideline for the creative expressions which, each time, push the boundaries of reality and fantasy, transforming imagination into reality, dreams into ǖber- precious, unique, unrepeatable objects. A selection of designers who envisage their fashion as if it were a living object designed to be adapted to the human body, at times driven by a desire to embellish or simply transform it. All items designed for the occasion are timeless “demi-couture”, accessories, shoewear and home-wear. A mood that blends to perfection with the monumental and
architectural beauties of the city and the tradition of Altaroma of which it is an inherent part. The aim of this exhibition is to redefine the classic method of displaying statues and to play with the idea of creating a monumental installation.
Designers showcasing their items include: Ana Rajcevic, Andreia Chaves, Aoi Kotsuhiroi, Aquilano Raimondo, Arnoldo Battois, Cat Potter, Fendi, Francesco Scognamiglio, Gareth Pugh, Hellen Van Rees, Katsuya Kamo, Maison Michel, Marco De Vincenzo, Mary Katrantzou, Maurizio Galante Tal Lancman, Minky Ha, Mikita Mylon, Pierre Hardy, Roberto Capucci, Sandra Backlund, Sergio Zambon, Sylvio Giardina, Tiziano Guardini and Valentino.
Contemporary luxury lies in the choice of a material, a detail that takes shape at the skilled hand of an artisan and is conceived to last for a lifetime. The values underlying these objects are timeless; they are not contaminated by the laws of marketing which require specific, highly demanding manufacturing deadlines, trends that last for a season, beset by the ongoing, relentless rhythms dictated by fashion calendars.
