“Il nuovo vocabolario della moda” at Triennale

Il nuovo vocabolario della Moda
Exhibition at the Triennale in Milan from November 24 to March 6, 2016
The New Vocabulary of Italian Fashion analyses this language and the new nature of Italian fashion through the work of its protagonists and their various expressions. From ready-to-wear and streetwear to footwear, eyewear, jewellery and hats, it is an original vocabulary of style and productivity.
Over 100 of the most important companies on the contemporary scene will participate in the exhibition with their products and projects. They are designers and brands, selected with the scientific-educational approach of a system with subsequent phases by curators Paola Bertola and Vittorio Linfante, together with the exhibition’s Scientific Committee (chaired by Eleonora Fiorani and composed of Silvana Annicchiarico, Gianluca Bauzano, Patrizia Calefato, Enrica Morini, Domenico Quaranta and Salvo Testa), with the help of a large group of advisors, experts in the world of fashion (communicators, designers, journalists, producers, distributors, etc.). To enhance the design content of garments and accessories, as well as to strongly express the concept of “vocabulary”, the exhibition is structured in a path composed of key words that each summarize a typical concept that is renewed by Made in Italy products. For example: Material, Construction, Adornment, Detail, Workshop… each characterized by installations that illustrate the product and its creative process, from the pattern to accessories and trials of working components.
The exhibition is divided into three main sections:
Vocabulary: products are organized around key concepts in order to represent the different design approaches that recontextualize the archetypal elements of Italian products.
Narratives: an outline is drawn of the system of cultural and communicative production that revolves around fashion: photography, illustration, new media, publishing and video-art.
Biographies: a focus on the narrative stories of individual designers and brands who have created the new language of Made in Italy fashion.
The exhibition’s path is curated by Milanese architect Martino Berghinz, while its visual communication is managed by Zeta_lab.

The exhibition is devoted to Elio Fiorucci
