Il corpo umano è una macchina perfettamente calibrata, armoniosa, spesso sorprendente.
Per questo mi ha fatto piacere trovare nei giovani creativi e negli stilisti più d’avanguardia, un rinnovato interesse per quello che si trova all’interno del corpo umano.

La tendenza che ho rilevato mostra un approccio molto concettuale: trasformazione, deformazione, trasparenza e dissezionamento sono i modi in cui artisti di varie discipline si sono avvicinati all’anatomia come spunto per la realizzazione delle loro creazioni.

surprising. This is why I was pleased to find in young creatives and the most avant-garde
designers, a renewed interest in what is inside the human body.
The skeleton in particular has an incredible charm, because it’s the hardest and lasting part of our body. It’s strong and yet flexible, is protective, but also dynamic. The bones have sinuous shapes, a warm and pure color, a rough and porous texture. From the point of view of a designer the bone structure of the human body can reveal a precious source of inspiration.
The trend that I
noted shows a very conceptual approach: transformation, deformation, transparency
and dissection are the ways in which artists from various disciplines have
approached the anatomy as a starting point for the realization of their
- TRANSFORMATION: Bones become shapes to
transmute into a hybrid that makes the figure
part man and part
animal, even coming from the imaginary fantastic.
- DEFORMATION: The amazing shapes vertebrae,
hip or shoulder blades are deformed and enlarged
to become something more majesticthat overlooks the real body of person wearing the clothes.
- TRANSPARENCY: The skeleton appears to
x-rays, often only drawn, and is
superimposed on the bare skin, creating a surface in which it seems that the past, present and future of our body coexist
- DISSECTION: The dress like the opening of the body and revelation of what there is below,
with the fabric which, appropriately
manipulated, assumes the shape of
ribs and sternum, clavicles and ileum…
