BULGARI CELEBRATES 130 YEARS To celebrate its 130th anniversary, Italian luxury jewellery and watch purveyor Bulgari has refurbished its fagship store in Rome. American artist and architect Peter Marino oversaw the project, which incorporates the renovation of Rome’s famous Spanish Steps. The Steps have served as a link between Rome’s three Bulgari boutiques throughout the past four decades, and the contribution is a tribute to the city the brand cites as Save up to 15.5% by shopping tax free, see page 130

an ‘inexhaustible, constant source of inspiration’. For the redesign, Marino retained and reinstalled features created by Italian architect Di Fausto, who combined modernist and classical elements in his transformation of the store during the 1930s. Marino chose new materials and furnishings that complement the historic interior, creating an elegant, palatial environment that suitably showcases the iconic brand’s heritage and spectacular collections, which are housed in diferent rooms within the space. gl Bulgari, Via dei Condotti 10, 00187 Rome, +39 06 696261, bulgari.com * for map go to page 95

窶連quafor is in a Renaissance palazzo, dating from the 1500s, in the heart of Florence near Piazza Santa Croce.

Understated, luxurious – and utterly chic: no wonder the impeccable style of Italy’s bestdressed women is admired worldwide, says Clare Coulson

If you had to deconstruct a nation’s style, then the typical wardrobe of a chic Italian woman would probably be something like this: a crisp shirt, a luxurious cashmere sweater (she probably has a collection of them in beautiful colours), exquisitely cut tailoring and some simple pumps or moccasins, all ofset with heirloom jewellery including a few bangles and a cocktail ring or two. It’s a luxurious, classic look, which transcends age, era, background and location.


S H O P | 63

This look – perfected and refned by the Italians over decades – may look simple, but takes some élan to really pull it of. ‘Great style comes from within, and Italians have an innate elegance which is efortless,’ explains stylist and one-time Milan resident Carmen Borgonovo. ‘They are natural and at ease with their style, and focus on understated and timeless luxury.’ But for Borgonovo there’s one critical reason that Italian women pull of this look so inimitably: ‘The key to their impeccable chic is they never look as if they are trying too hard. They achieve a perfect balance between constraint and sophistication.’ It’s a style brilliantly recorded in Italian Touch, a book commissioned by Diego Della Valle, owner of shoe empire Tod’s. The glossy volume is a stunning visual record of supremely stylish Italian

families. In each and every picture, diferent generations gather in crisp shirts and chinos, car shoes and Ray-Bans, making the book a great starting point if you want to emulate their natural fair. It’s also a style on which Italy’s fashion industry has been built,

one that focuses always on craftsmanship and quality. This past summer, an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London took a trip through the world of Italian fashion, charting its rise from the 1950s to the present day. What shone through was the skill of artisan producers who have built their businesses on supreme luxury: the most sumptuous cashmere, butter-soft leather bags and handmade shoes, beautiful fabrics made by Italian mills. It’s a heritage that was only really appreciated from the mid 20th century onwards, but has since become recognised and revered the world over. This autumn, it’s the eminently stylish wardrobe of Marella Agnelli bringing a fresh focus to the style of the nation. Look at any images of Agnelli, whether she’s wearing a beaded kaftan gown by Mila Schön to Truman Capote’s legendary Black and White Ball in New

York in 1966 or on board her yacht wearing something as relaxed as a pink towelling playsuit, and there is a simplicity thanks to clean-cut silhouettes and bold lines. But the efect is never dull because of her use of sumptuous materials, rich colour and beautiful accessories. Agnelli, like her best-dressed compatriots, has always had an innate sense of proportion and elegance. Often Agnelli’s choices – for daytime, at least – look supremely classic, but there’s a lightness and ease in the way in which it’s all put

together. So if you were shopping for the perfect building blocks, it would go something like this: a really luxurious coat – the obvious choice is a belted camel coat by Max Mara, such as wide-lapelled version cinched with a knotted glossy leather belt from this autumn/winter collection. Wear it with the simplest of cream sweaters and perfectly cut trousers and you have an instantly chic look. The Italians have a worldwide reputation for their exquisite tailoring which, championed by Giorgio Armani, is fuid and soft. This autumn Armani has cut his slightly slouchy trousers with a slightly cropped silhouette. But for real longevity you certainly need to invest in a classic tailored blazer and beautiful trousers. Italian women do boyish shirts brilliantly – as demonstrated in many Prada and Miu Miu shows – but they are always expertly laundered. On top you’ll need some

cashmere; thicker ply cashmeres will last and wear much better than cheaper versions, and labels such as Malo produce some of the best in the world. Keep accessories simple. You can’t go wrong with a chocolate leather intrecciato shoulder bag from a label such as Bottega Veneta: it will never date and will probably last a lifetime. Some classic moccasins from Tod’s or Car Shoe are the perfect end note. After all, what could be more Italian than a lightly tanned ankle peeping out above a camel suede loafer? tods.com, maxmara.com, armani.com, prada.com, miumiu.com, malo.it, bottegaveneta.com, carshoe.com

Standard shelving, gleaming glass display cases and polite rails of clothing no longer cut it in the world of shop design. In today’s competitive fashion business, brands are raising their game, morphing the shopping experience into something fantastical. Eyepopping art installations, vertical gardens, incredible feats of architecture and a sense of magic are transforming how we engage with our retail environment, nowhere more so than in Italy. One name on the speed-dial list of fashion designers the world over looking for an innovative space in which to showcase their oferings is Peter Marino, whose work has put him on fashion’s A-list. In Italy his brand of elegance is on display at Milan’s Giorgio Armani store – little surprise given that he designed Armani’s private residence – and at the Ermenegildo Zegna store. Here, sweeping staircases, slabs of marble and limestone and tactile materials in the designer’s trademark tones take over the vast space, creating a calming, quietly luxurious environment.

in 2014, it also chose Marino, with the architect saying at the launch that ‘it took all my skills to get a new concept that was as eternal as Rome, as sexy as Bulgari’s clientele.’ The result is a sleek temple of refnement in calm greys and green African marble. The Italian capital is no stranger to Marino; he created the fantastical Louis Vuitton store in the city as well, with Rome’s cinema heritage referenced throughout and an in-store movie theatre playing short flms by Italy’s fnest. It doesn’t get more experiential than that. Of course, Milan has long had a template for making the process of picking up that pair of heels or must-have dress an experience as opposed to a standard procedure. Founded in 1991 by former magazine editor and gallerist Carla Sozzani, 10 Corso Como paved the way for a new kind of store. Based in a former Fiat garage, it mixed fashion and art, with cutting-edge

Italy’s rich architectural heritage has not stifed innovation, however. Providing a deft example of how to update a historic site, Moschino enlisted architect Michele De Lucchi to reimagine its sumptuous Milan store space in a 19th-century townhouse as a series of harlequin-printed rooms

exhibitions spliced between curated collections of clothes from the world’s leading designers. Sozzani changed the retail landscape, introducing a design store, a café, a record shop, a small hotel and a roof garden – with all developments overseen by American artist Kris Ruhs. In short, it’s a whole day’s worth of experience under one beautifully designed roof. Of course, it comes as no surprise that the Italians have mastered the secret of making the process of shopping a luxurious and sensory one. The historic Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II in Milan and Galleria Alberto Sordi in Rome have long stood as handsome proof of their ability to create inviting retail spaces. Each has its own unique history, with arches or domes, vaulted or coloured glass ceilings and antique detailing providing a memorable setting for boutiques, cafés and restaurants.

The Classic Gucci Loafer

PHOTO: TaziO SeccHiarOLi

Gucci’s smart-casual snafe-bit loafer has been a design classic since it was launched 60 years ago. Gwyneth Holland explains why The term ‘iconic’ is frequently overused in the fashion world, but not every product, designer or collection can become an icon. Gucci’s snafe-bit loafer, however, was a classic from the very start. Inspired by the easy, functional style of the aristocratic guests at the Savoy hotel in London where founder Guccio Gucci once worked as a bellboy, the snafe-bit loafer was launched by his son Aldo in 1953. Since then, the shoe has been worn by Hollywood stars and sports stars, politicians, business magnates and international playboys, and, along the way, it has changed footwear forever.

The Gucci brand, now famous across the world, started in a Florence saddlery in 1921 and equestrian-themed details pop up throughout the brand’s collections, from its red and green stripes, inspired by the strap used to hold a saddle in place, to the double ring and bar motif of the snafe bit (also known as the horsebit). The snafe bit has appeared on Gucci bags, belts and even Tom Ford-era cut-out dresses, but never looks so at home as on the front of the classic loafer. The snafe-bit loafer is a slip-on shoe made of supple leather, with an almond-shaped toe, slim sole and bar across the foot. Despite

Gucci’s snaffle-bit loafer was a classic from the very start

its simple looks, the loafer has had a major impact on the way men dress: Gucci efectively created a whole new category of footwear for men when it launched the loafer in 1953. Previously, men’s footwear was available only in either extremely smart or very casual styles, but this luxurious slip-on, crossing the ease of a moccasin with the sleekness of a dress shoe, became the original smart-casual footwear and was quickly adopted by the international jet set. The distinctive glint of the snafe bit became a symbol of European chic for Hollywood stars from Clark Gable and Fred Astaire to Peter Sellers and John Wayne, with the style swiftly adapted and taken up by leading ladies too. But it’s not just the famous fans that have made the style so iconic: the snafe-bit loafer has long had an air of aspirational, continental-style exoticism, whether worn sockless and carefree on the Riviera, or with a sharp suit on the streets of London or Milan. The shoe’s style is partly down to its unique structure: each pair is

built by Gucci artisans over twoand-a-half days, using a tubular construction technique that does away with the insole and makes the shoe light, pliable and comfortable. Once the shoe is constructed, the leather is then hand-stained by a colour specialist, giving each pair a unique look. Although the snafebit loafer was originally only available in safe black, brown and white leather, the 45-strong range has now expanded to include both

bright and classic colours in patent leather, suede, crocodile, python and patterned canvas. A women’s version of the shoe was introduced in 1968, and has since been embraced by stars including Sophia Loren and Jodie Foster, who was snapped skateboarding in her pair. More recently, Charlotte Casiraghi, scion of Monaco’s royal family and amateur show-jumper, starred in an equestrian-themed 2012 ad campaign sporting the loafers. As with any product that’s been around for decades, the snafebit loafer has had ups and downs, sometimes literally. In the 1970s, the block heels of the men’s shoe rose almost as high as the women’s version, while 90s versions bore chunky tyre-like treads. In between, the instantly recognisable snafe bit became a status symbol, as demonstrated by Leonardo DiCaprio’s loafers in the recent flm The Wolf of Wall Street. The snafe-bit design may have had some high-octane moments, but the original style of the loafer remains truly timeless. After all, it’s the only shoe to make

it into the permanent collection of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini has now returned the snafe-bit loafer to its of-duty sweet spot through the new 1953 collection, launched to mark the loafer’s 60th anniversary last year. The reimagined loafer, worn with anything from rolled-up chinos to a dress to a tuxedo, has found a wealth of new fans across the world, from style leaders Poppy Delevingne and Li Bingbing to snappy dressers such as actors Idris Elba and James Franco. A whole new generation is rediscovering the easy glamour of the iconic snafebit loafer: which is only right for a shoe with one foot in the past and one in the present gucci.com

1. Santa Maria della Pace Located in the quiet backstreets behind Piazza Navona, the 15th-century Santa Maria della Pace church is one of the city’s most impressive. Its exterior is dominated by a theatrical Baroque façade, designed by Pietro de Cortona, while the interior is home to the celebrated Four Sibyls fresco by Raphael. Santa Maria della Pace, Via Arco della Pace 5, 00186 Rome, +39 06 686 1156 2. Giardino degli Aranci One of Rome’s most romantic locations, the Giardino degli Aranci (Orange Garden) offers spectacular views of the city’s skyline. Designed by Raffaele de Vico and tucked behind the Basilica di Santa Sabina, the garden’s terrace is one of the city’s most sought-after picture spots, especially among couples, thanks to its panoramic view across the river Tiber to the dome of Saint Peter’s.

TOP TIP

PHOTO: MR.AjedRez/CC BY-SA 3.0

Once you’ve headed west of the Tiber to visit the Vatican, turn south-east off Piazza San Pietro and make the gentle ascent up the Gianicolo – this secluded viewpoint offers some of the most spectacular views across Rome. It’s an easy walk from the hill down into the bustling Trastevere district, filled with bars and restaurants that are perfectly placed for a post-walk treat.

CAMPAGNA ● CULTI ● MOSCA ●

No visit to Milan would be complete without enjoying an evening aperitivo. This popular local custom typically takes place between 6pm and 9pm, before dinner. Visit a bar between these times and buy a drink and you can take your pick of the appetisers available. The range offered depends on the restaurant; some selections are limited, while others offer such an extensive choice that there is no need for dinner!

FurTher AFIelD… Pisa Located just an hour from Florence, former maritime power Pisa is now best known for its leaning tower. Even so, the rest of this compact yet vibrant city is also well worth exploring thanks to its enviable portfolio of wellmaintained Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and Renaissance piazzas, as well as its bustling student population. The tower is Pisa’s most famous landmark by far; construction began in 1173 and the structure has tilted by about a millimetre every year since. Be sure to book ahead; only 40 visitors are allowed to climb the tower’s 300 or so steps at any one time. The Duomo, opposite the tower, is equally impressive; the building’s opulent façade features four tiers of columns, while inside 68 granite columns and the wooden ceiling accented with 24-carat gold add to the sense of grandeur. Away from the Piazza dei Miracoli, Pisa offers myriad attractions. The river Arno flows through the city centre, lined by restaurants and cafés; be sure to stop at De’ Coltelli gelateria to enjoy an ice cream with river views. Visit the Palazzo Medici and the Museo Nazionale di San Matteo to view some of the country’s finest works of art, browse the shops set along Corso Italia, and dine on traditional Tuscan cuisine at the historic Il Campano restaurant.

HoW to Get tHere By train: trains leave from Florence Santa Maria Novella for Pisa Centrale a few times every hour. regional trains that stop at intermediate stations including Pontedera and empoli take around an hour, while fast trains can complete the journey in rather less.

Идеальная простота

Клэр Коулсон раскрывает секреты итальянского безупречного стиля, который сочетанием роскошной простоты и неподражаемой элегантности восхищает поклонников моды во всем мире Если задаться целью и разобрать итальянский стиль по составляющим, то типичный гардероб итальянки выглядел бы примерно так: накрахмаленная рубашка, целая коллекция роскошных кашемировых свитеров красивых оттенков, костюм изысканного кроя и несколько пар простых туфель-лодочек или мокасинов. Все это венчают фамильные драгоценности – несколько браслетов и globalblue.com

несколько коктейльных колец. Столь роскошный классический образ оказался неподвластен смене веков, эпох и исторических декораций. Итальянцы оттачивали и совершенствовали его на протяжении десятилетий. И пусть он выглядит просто, однако чтобы поддерживать его постоянно, требуются определенные навыки. «Безупречный стиль идет изнутри, но итальянцы обладают врожденной элегантностью, которая кажется непринужденной, - объясняет стилист Кармен Боргоново, которая раньше работала в Милане. – Они естественны и легко справляются со своим стилем, фокусируясь на лаконичной и неподвластной времени роскоши». Боргоново точно знает секрет этого неподражаемого стиля: «Ключ к безупречной элегантности итальянок кроется в том, чтобы никогда не показывать приложенных усилий. Им удается соблюдать идеальный баланс между работой над образом и непринужденной утонченностью. Этот подход очень точно передан в книге Italian Touch владельца обувной империи Tod’s Диего Делла Валле. Ему удалось собрать под общей обложкой фотографии


136

итальянских семей с идеальным вкусом. На каждой странице читатель видит представителей различных поколений в накрахмаленных рубашках и брюках-чинос, мокасинах Car Shoes и очках Ray Ban. И если вы хотите проникнуться этим врожденным итальянским талантом изысканно одеваться, эта книга станет прекрасной отправной точкой. Ведь именно этот стиль лежит в основе всей итальянской модной индустрии, в центре внимания которой - идеальное качество и великолепный уровень мастерства. Еще одним путеводителем по миру итальянской моды стала этим летом выставка в лондонском Музее Виктории и Альберта, раскрывшая развитие национального стиля с 1950-х до наших дней. Все ее экспонаты объединяет высший профессионализм исполнения, сосредоточенный на истинной роскоши. Великолепный кашемир, сумки из мягчайшей кожи и обувь ручной работы, прекрасные ткани, выработанные на итальянских мельницах, - все это богатое наследие приобрело особую ценность в Италии с середины 20 века. А после – получило мировое признание и уважение. Этой осенью решающее влияние на итальянский стиль оказывает гардероб Мареллы Аньелли. Если внимательно посмотреть на фотографии, то можно заметить, что все ее globalblue.com

образы объединяет роскошная простота, в основе которой – ясные силуэты и мягкие линии. Обратите внимание на расшитое бисером платьекафтан от Mila Schön для легендарного бала Black and White Ball, который Труман Капоте провел в Нью-Йорке в 1966 году, или на мягкий розовый комбинезон, в котором она позировала на борту яхты. Но эта простота не может наскучить, поскольку в основе ее - роскошные материалы, насыщенные оттенки и красивые аксессуары. Марелла Аньелли, как и ее безупречно одетые соотечественницы, обладала врожденным чувством гармонии и элегантности. Дневной комплект, которому Аньелли отдает предпочтение, остается классическим. Однако особая легкость явлена в ее манере сочетать вещи. И если, вслед за ней, вы станете подбирать идеальные составляющие будущего образа, ваш список покупок будет возглавлять по-настоящему роскошное пальто из верблюжьей шерсти с ремнем от Max Mara, например, модель с широкими лацканами, затянутая кожаным плетеным поясом из коллекции осень/ зима этого года. Простой кашемировый свитер кремового оттенка и брюки идеального кроя – и неподражаемо роскошный образ готов. Изысканный крой, плавный и мягкий, с легкой руки


137

Джорджио Армани, прославил итальянскую моду на весь мир. В осенней коллекции Armani вновь появились фирменные свободные брюки, но на этот раз в укороченной вариации. Но если вам нужен по-настоящему неподвластный времени стиль, обратите внимание на блейзер классического кроя и идеально сидящие брюки. Итальянки знают толк в рубашках мужского кроя, что наглядно показывают коллекции Prada и Miu Miu, но они должны быть идеально посажены по фигуре. Поверх нужно надеть качественный свитер: кашемир плотной вязки будет выглядеть гораздо лучше и останется с вами дольше, чем недорогие аналоги более экономичных марок. Лучшие в мире свитера ищите у таких лейблов, как Malo. Аксессуары также должны быть простыми. Безошибочным вариантом будет сумка через плечо intrecciato из шоколадной кожи от Bottega Veneta. Она никогда не выйдет из моды и вы наверняка будете использовать ее многие года. Классические мокасины от Tod’s или Car Shoe прекрасно завершат образ. В конце концов, это так по-итальянски – когда поверх легких туфель из верблюжьей замши выглядывает слегка загоревшая лодыжка. tods.com, maxmara.com, armani.com, prada.com, miumiu.com, malo.it, bottegaveneta.com, carshoe.com

68: Interior Life

Идеальная простота Стивен Дойг рассказывает об итальянских бутиках, изменивших представление о дизайне интерьеров в мире моды Стандартный стеллаж, сверкающие стеклянные витрины и изящные рейлы – этого уже недостаточно, чтобы считать интерьерный дизайн бутика успешным. Модная конкуренция диктует игру на повышение ставок: сам процесс шоппинга должен быть для покупателя настоящим приключением. Причудливые арт-инсталляции, вертикальные сады, неподражаемая архитектура и атмосфера волшебства преображают наше восприятие современных магазинов. И едва ли где-то эти идеи применяются более эффективно, чем в Италии. Среди дизайнеров с мировыми именем, способных воплотить инновационный проект в модной сфере, особое место занимает Питер Марино, профессионализм которого признают ведущие представители индустрии. Он разработал интерьер бутиков Giorgio Armani (что неудивительно, учитывая, что он же оформил частный дом Армани) и Ermenegildo Zegna. Широкие лестницы, стойки из мрамора, известняка и других изысканных материалов


138

фирменных оттенков украшают обширное пространство салона, что только способствует созданию спокойной и роскошной атмосферы. Компания Bulgari также отдала предпочтение Марино, когда приступила к реконструкции флагманского магазина в Риме к 130-летию в 2014 году. На открытии новой версии бутика архитектор отметил: «Я приложил все свои знания и умения, чтобы разработать новый концепт – такой же вечный, как Рим, и столь же сексуальный, как клиенты Bulgari». Благодаря мягким серым оттенкам и зеленому африканскому мрамору в отделке, обновленный магазин буквально воплощает утонченность. Марино активно работает в Риме: он же стал автором столичного бутика Louis Vuitton. В основе его оформления – великий итальянский кинематограф, а на экранах демонстрируются лучшие фильмы. Оказываясь внутри такого магазина, посетитель как будто попадает в ту эпоху – едва ли можно придумать нечто более увлекательное. В Милане же есть собственные ориентиры: уже довольно давно здесь работает магазин, в котором обычная покупка пары туфель или платья must-have превращается в целое событие. В 1991 году Карла Соццани, галерист и globalblue.com

бывший редактор журнала, открыла в гараже Fiat первый магазин под брендом 10 Corso Como, и он положил начало концепции нового времени. В соответствии с ней, в одном пространстве сосуществовали мода и искусство, а актуальные выставки перемежались коллекциями дизайнеров с мировыми именами. Соццани удалось сломать формат традиционной розничной торговли, соединив дизайнбутик, кафе, музыкальный магазин, небольшой отель и даже сад на крыше. Соавтором этого проекта стал американский художник Крис Рус. Плодом их труда стало заведение нового типа, где можно провести целый день и получить самые разные впечатления. Неудивительно, что именно в Италии шоппинг приобретает новые свойства. Такие исторические торговые центры, как Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II в Милане и Galleria Alberto Sordi в Риме, уже давно подтверждают умение итальянцев творчески подходить к этому вопросу. Таким образом, у каждой из этих галерей своя история и особенности, будь то арки или купола, сводчатые или мозаичные потолки, или даже античная отделка бутиков, кафе и ресторанов, которая остается в памяти посетителей надолго. Вместе с тем, великое архитектурное наследие


139

Новый торговый комплекс CityLife в Милане - образец интереса итальянцев к авангардной архитектуре. Невозможно не заметить три выдающихся небоскреба, тем более что над каждым работали именитые архитекторы - Заха Хадид, Даниэль Либескинд и Агата Исозаки. В каждом здании предусмотрены жилые, деловые и торговые зоны. Эти три красивые башни пришли на смену старинным грациозным галереям, знаменуя наступление новой эпохи 21 века и в модном мире тоже. armani.com, zegna.com, bulgari.com, 10corsocomo.com, moschino.com, replay.it, rossanaorlandi.com, city-life.it 76: In Focus: The Classic Gucci Loafer

Италии не мешает развиваться инновациям. Напротив, по всей стране немало примеров, как современные компании переосмысляют исторические достопримечательности. Так, бренд Moschino нанял архитектора Мишеля Де Луччи, который разработал роскошный магазин в миланском таунхаусе 19 века: теперь это целая галерея ярко расписанных комнат с притягивающей взгляды мебелью. Подобный же изобретательный подход выбрал в 2009 году джинсовый лейбл Replay для своего флорентийского магазина: с помощью вертикального озеленения он подчеркнул внимание к окружающей среде, а джинсы оказались не в витринах, а среди зеленой листвы. Бутик интерьерных решений Spazio Rossana Orlandi – пример особых успехов в создании необычных и интересных интерьеров. Галерист и истинная поклонница дизайна Россана Орланди сделала его похожим на выставочное пространство с садами и террасами, где представлены произведения современного искусства и великолепные дизайнерские вещи. В частности, в рамках экспозиций она представляла совместны проекты с британским дизайнерский дуэтом Джеймсом Пламбом и серебряных дел мастером из Дании Георгом Йенсеном.

Гвинет Холланд рассказывает, как лоферы Gucci, столь органичные в стиле smartcasual, стали классикой 60 лет назад – с первых дней своего существования Термином «культовый» в модном мире часто злоупотребляют. Ведь далеко не у всякой вещи, коллекции или даже дизайнера есть шанс по-настоящему приобрести подобный статус. Лоферы Gucci с фирменной пряжкой, однако, превратились в модную классику с первых же сезонов. Когда-то Гуччио Гуччи перенял спокойный функциональных стиль английских аристократов – постояльцев отеля Savoy в Лондоне, где он работал посыльным. Вдохновляясь этой манерой, его сын Альдо Гуччи создал первые лоферы в 1953 году. Так этот вид обуви прочно вошел в обиход голливудских звезд, спортсменов, политиков, магнатов и модников всего мира. Более того, лоферам удалось безвозвратно преобразить само представление об обуви. Марка с мировым именем Gucci начинала свой путь в 1921 году с шорной мастерской, куда жокеи обращались за инвентарем. Поэтому жокейская тематика появляется практически во всех коллекциях бренда. Иногда это проявляется в отделке вещей красными и зелеными полосками, напоминающими globalblue.com

о ремнях для седла. Еще один популярный мотив – похожая на уздечку пряжка в форме соединенных рейкой двух колец. Он украшал сумки, ремни и даже платья того периода, когда Том Форд был дизайнером марки. Но нигде этот элемент не смотрится так органично, как на классических лоферах. Лоферы представляют собой туфли с миндалевидным носком, на тонкой подошве и без шнурков. Их шьют из мягкой кожи и украшают фирменной жокейской пряжкой. Несмотря на весьма простой облик, они оказали существенное влияние на мужской гардероб: таким образом, в 1953 году бренд Gucci создал новую категорию обуви для мужчин. Прежде существовало две крайности: либо элегантные модели, либо нарочито расслабленные. Новые роскошные туфли объединили в себе легкость мокасин с изящностью костюмных туфель и, тем самым, задали новые тренды стиля smartcasual, которые тепло приняла международная стильная тусовка. Фирменная пряжка стала символом европейского шика для голливудских звезд: дизайнерское решение Gucci по достоинству оценили Гларк Гейбл, Фред Астер, Питер Селлерс и Джон Уэйн. Вскоре новым видом обуви заинтересовались и знаменитые актрисы. Но не только звездные поклонники

сделали лоферы культовыми: в массовом восприятии они ассоциировались с экзотичной атмосферой Европы. Их расслабленно носили без носков на Ривьере, и с равным успехом сочетали с деловым костюмом на улицах Лондона или Милана. Подобной востребованностью эта обувь отчасти обязана уникальной полой конструкции. Причем на создание каждой пары мастера Gucci тратят до двух с половиной дней. Структура не предусматривает внутренней стельки, за счет чего туфли получаются легкими, гибкими и удобными. Затем кожа вручную окрашивается прошедшим подготовку колористом, который придает каждой паре особенный вид. Изначально выпускались только черные, коричневые и белые лоферы, однако теперь в ассортименте 45 оттенков и различные материалы: лакированная кожа, замша, кожа аллигатора и питона, а также полотно с принтом. Женская вариация появилась в 1968 году, и на них сразу обратили внимание такие звезды, как София Лорен и Джуди Фостер. Фостер однажды даже попала в объективы фотографов во время катания на скейтборде – конечно, в любимой паре лоферов. В 2012 году Шарлотта Касираги, представительница королевской семьи Монако и любительница конкура, снялась для рекламной

кампании Gucci, посвященной жокейской тематикой. Как это часто бывает, за десятилетия существования лоферы знали периоды взлетов и падений, иногда в буквальном смысле. Так, в 1970е широкий каблук мужской обуви стал почти таким же высоким, как женский. А в 90-е уплотнились подошвы туфель, став похожими на шины. Но за все эти годы узнаваемая пряжка превратилась в символ определенного статуса, что наглядно демонстрируют лоферы Леонадро ДиКаприо, в которых он появился в вышедшем недавно фильме «Волк с Уолл-Стрит». Пусть даже жокейская тема в отдельные периоды была на острие моды. И все же оригинальный стиль лоферов остается поистине неподвластным времени. Они даже вошли в постоянную коллекцию нью-йоркского Музея искусств Metropolitan. Креативный директор Gucci Фрида Джаннини сумела привлечь к легендарной модели заслуженное внимание с помощью новой коллекции «1953», посвященной 60-летию лоферов, которое отмечалось в прошлом году. На новом этапе их так легко сочетать с чем угодно – брюками-чинос, платьями, смокингами. Такая изящная легкость завоевала лоферам множество новых поклонников по всему миру, в том числе -

трендсеттеров Поппи Делевинь и Ли Бинбин и модных актеров Идриса Эльбу и Джеймса Франко. Новому поколению модников по душе простая роскошь этих культовых туфель. И это абсолютно справедливо: стиль лоферов Gucci органично объединяет прошлое и настоящее. gucci.com 130: When You Shop The World, Shop Tax Free

尚风格无可挑剔,关键是她们从未过度 修饰,她们能在拘谨和繁琐之间达到完 美的平衡。” 这种时尚格调完美收录于《意大 利风尚》(Italian Touch),本书受鞋 业王国Tod’s的所有人Diego Della Valle委托制作。书籍制作精美,记录了 超级时尚的意大利家族,令人叹为观止。 如果你想模仿意大利式自然风格,本书 就是很好的入门教材,每页都有不同年 代风格的模特,穿着挺括的衬衫和斜纹 棉布裤、船鞋、戴雷朋太阳眼镜。 意大利时尚产业的基石是其对工艺 和质量的专注。在这个即将过去的夏天, 在伦敦维多利亚阿尔伯特博物馆( Victoria and Albert Museum)展示了意大 利时尚世界之旅,记录了其20世纪50年 代崛起至今的发展历程。其中表现出高 端奢侈品制作工匠的高超技艺:华丽的 开司米羊毛、柔软皮包、手工制鞋、意大 利纺织厂生产的美丽织物。对这种时尚 传统的真正欣赏始于20世纪中期,至今已 受到世界各地的认可和尊敬。 今年秋天,Marella Agnelli卓 越的穿衣风格给全国带来新鲜的时尚

焦点。Agnelli造型多变,她穿着Mila Schön设计的珠串装饰土耳其长袍,亮 相于1966年纽约Truman Capote举 办的传奇“黑白”舞会上。如果在游艇 上,她会穿着粉色休闲毛巾料连身裤, 粗线条图案,轮廓鲜明,风格简约。无 论如何,她的穿着从不沉闷,因为她大 胆选用华丽的材料,丰富的色彩和美丽 的饰品。Agnelli和她那些着装考究的 朋友一样,总是知道如何恰到好处地优 雅打扮。 Agnelli白天时的着装选择通常极 度优雅经典,整体搭配又透出一丝轻快。 如果你想购买完美的服装整体搭配,它 可能是这样的:真正奢华的外套——最 佳选择是Max Mara配腰带驼毛外套, 例如今年秋冬系列中的大翻领款,搭配 打结漆皮腰带。如果里面穿上奶油色简约 款毛衣,下面搭配剪裁完美的裤子,就会 立刻展现时髦造型。 意大利人有享誉全球的精致裁剪, 线条流畅柔软,Giorgio Armani是其 中佼佼者。今年秋季Armani的设计略 有削减裤子的剪裁轮廓,使其更加修身。 但出于真正的长久性考虑,你当然需要投 资经典的定制西装和剪裁漂亮的裤子。 意大利女性可以巧妙穿着男孩风的 衬衫——在许多Prada和MiuMiu的 秀场有所展示——但是这些衬衫都经过 完美洗熨。上半身你可以穿开司米羊毛; 厚实的开司米羊毛比廉价高街时尚品更 耐穿,品牌例如Malo生产全球最佳开 司米制品。 配饰要简洁。巧克力色皮革编织单 肩包永远不会出错,你可以选择Bottega Veneta:永不过时,可能会陪伴你一生。 最后,你可以从Tod’s 或Car Shoe选 择合适的经典船鞋。想想看,在驼色麂皮 船鞋上方露出浅浅古铜色的肌肤,还有 什么比这更显意大利风情呢? tods.com, maxmara.com, armani.com, prada.com, miumiu.com, malo.it, bottegaveneta.com, carshoe.com

68: Interior Life 内饰秘诀

在独具风格的门店内部装潢领域,意大 利设计师们绝对是业内翘楚。Stephen Doig走近这些改变了零售商业面貌的大 师们,为我们带来精彩报道 标准化的展示架、闪亮亮的玻璃橱窗还 有整齐挂着的服装在门店设计的世界里 早已过气。在当下竞争激烈的时尚界中, 各大品牌都在暗暗发力,誓要把原本普 通的购物体验升级成为爱丽丝梦游仙境 般的探险。弹眼落睛的装置艺术、垂直花 园、难以置信的建筑形态甚至还附带有 些微的魔幻氛围,这些新趋势正在转变 我们与零售商业环境的关系,而意大利 正是这些非凡创意的起源之地。 近年所有想要找到能与自己服饰设计 相称展示空间的时尚设计师们,他们手 机通讯录上排名第一的那个名字毫无疑 问是Peter Marino。他在这几年与各大 globalblue.com

牌的合作之后早已托身为时尚商业空间 设计界的超一线大咖。在意大利,他招 牌式的优雅设计正呈现在Giorgio Armani位于米兰的旗舰店中,当然,在他 设计了Armani先生的私人豪宅以及Ermenegildo Zegna旗舰店之后这也算 不上意外。曲径通幽的阶梯,丰富的大理 石与石灰岩,还有各种质感华贵的材质 堆砌蔓延整个空间,构造出一个奢侈而 沉静的购物环境,这便是Peter Marino 的独特设计风格。 当Bulgari为了庆祝品牌130周年而 准备将自家罗马旗舰店整体翻新时,他 们的目光也指向了Peter Marino 。之 后在 Bulgari 罗马总店翻新完成庆典当 晚,Peter Marino 说:“为了能使新店 匹配于Bulgari 品牌的性感魅力,同时 也能在 罗马这 样的永恒 地 标中完美 融 入,我用上了我的一切经验。”而设计师 努力的结晶也的确美轮美奂:新店仿佛 一座供奉着精美逸品的神殿,在装饰上 更缀以质感高贵的绿色与灰色非洲大理 石。Peter Marino算是罗马的常客,他 也曾负责过Louis Vuitton位于罗马门 店的内部装潢:灵感来源于罗马丰富的电 影历史,而他甚至在店中单独分隔出一间 小型电影院来播放优秀的意大利原创短 篇。真是太先锋太酷了! 当然米兰一直以来都有着将普通的 购物过程变为惊喜体验的传统。前杂志 编辑、画廊主人Carla Sozzani在1991 年创立了10 Corso Como,一种前所未 有的商店。从一个古旧菲亚特汽车仓库 改造而来,10 Corso Como融合了艺术 与时尚,从先锋艺术展览到从世界各地 采买来的设计师潮服无所不包。Carla Sozzani完全改变了零售商业本来的样 貌,在这个空间中引进了设计师商店、咖 啡馆、唱片店、精品酒店甚至一个屋顶花 园!这些都是她邀请了美国艺术家 Kris Ru hs 亲自监督设计的。总结起来,10 Corso Como 就是各种新奇体验全部 集中在了同一个屋檐下,能够让你在此呆 满一天。


145 当然,意 大 利人将普 通购物流程化 腐朽为神奇,使之变为充满各种感官享 受与惊喜的本事,早已不是什么秘密。米 兰那金碧辉煌充满历史气息的埃马努埃 莱二世拱廊街,罗马Galleria Alberto Sordi拱廊街,都是意大利人设计智慧的 有力证明。两处拱廊各自拥有自己独特的 历史,在宏伟的穹顶之下,彩绘玻璃与精 致古董点缀其中,都为消费者留下了令人 难忘的购物体验。 意大利深厚浓重的建筑历史遗产不 但没有束缚设计创新,反而愈加为设计 师们提供了灵感。Moschino 的御用建 筑师 Michele De Lucchi 将其米兰总 店改造成了极尽奢华的复古大宅,辅以 每个房间里的小丑主题元素以及鲜艳无 比的家居配饰。前卫牛仔品牌 Replay也 同样充满了想象力,为了推广其环境保护 理念,将一座垂直式室内花园搬进了佛罗 伦萨门店,那些花草树木的枝条上则长 出了牛仔裤! 如果说哪家店铺对创意室内设计的 运用达到了出神入化夺人心魄的地步, 非Spazio Rossana Orlandi家居商店 莫属。这个由同名画廊主人、艺术鉴赏家 建立的家居设计商店有着不断变化的展 示空间,甚至单独设有一个花园阳台用 来专门展示现代艺术以及珍贵单品:它 曾近展出过包括英国设计双人组 James Plumb和丹麦银匠Georg Jensen的设 计作品。 而 未 来 呢 ?最 新 由 世 界 上 三 位 最具个 性颠 覆设 计的建筑师Z a h a Hadid、Daniel Libeskind 和 Arata Isozaki设计的CityLife建筑群正在施 工当中:它将会包括住宅、商业和零售空 间。这三座摩天大楼将会成为米兰在21 世纪最新的购物地标,从传统的拱廊手 中传承意大利商业最优雅的历史。 armani.com, zegna.com, bulgari.com, 10corsocomo.com, moschino.com, replay.it, rossanaorlandi.com, city-life.it

76: In Focus: The Classic Gucci Loafer 精品聚焦:马衔扣乐福鞋 时尚休闲的Gucci 马衔扣乐福鞋,自60 年 前发布至今已 俨 然 成 为 一 款 经 典设 计。Gwyneth Holland为您揭秘个中 缘由

“标志性”一词在时尚界时常被滥用,但 是并非每款产品,每位设计师或每个系 列都可成为时代标志。然而Gucci 的马 衔扣乐福鞋,自诞生之日起就是无可争议 的经典。受品牌创始人Guccio Gucci曾 当过服务生的伦敦Savoy 酒店内往来的 贵族宾客们轻便实用的着装风格启发, 创始人之子Aldo 在1953 年推出了马衔 扣乐福鞋。自那时起,这款产品就受到好 莱坞明星与体育明星、政客要人、商界巨 鳄与国际花花公子们的青睐,并从此影 响并永远改变了鞋履的世界。 如今誉满全球的Gucci品牌,始于 1921年创立于佛罗伦萨的一间马具店, 以马术为灵感的设计细节可见诸于品牌 全系列,从灵感来自固定马鞍的绳索的 红绿间隔条纹,到借鉴自马衔扣(也称为 马嚼子)的双环与连接杆图案。马衔扣装 饰曾出现在 Gucci 的包袋、腰带、甚至

Tom Ford时代的镂空连衣裙上,然而 其从未像今日出现在这款经典乐福鞋头 上那么恰如其分。 马衔扣乐福鞋是一款足部可直接滑 入的懒人鞋,使用柔软皮革制作,搭配以 杏仁形鞋头、超轻便鞋底与围绕全足的 条纹镶边。尽管外形十分简单,这款鞋却 对男性着装史产生过重大影响:Gucci 在1953 年推出这款 乐福 鞋时,成功为 男士们创造出一个全新的鞋款类别。之 前的岁月里,男人们的鞋履要么极为正 式,要么极为休闲,而这款奢华懒人鞋, 将软皮鞋的惬意与正装鞋的时髦完美融 合,创造出全新的时尚休闲鞋履,并迅速 蹿红于全球上流群体之间。乐福鞋头上 马衔扣折射出的独特光芒,使其成为从 Clark Gable、Fred Astaire到Peter Sellers与John Wayne等一众好莱坞巨 星眼中的欧洲时尚。不久之后,这种款式 迅速被改造借鉴,权利女性们也纷纷加 入穿着行列。然而这款鞋如此具有标志 性,并非只因其名人拥趸:马衔扣乐福鞋 自身便带有充满启发性的、欧陆风格的 异国情调,无论是赤足穿着、无忧无虑地 漫步于里维埃拉,还是搭配精干西服、踏 足于伦敦或米兰的街头。 这款鞋履的风韵部分来自于其独特 的结构:每双鞋都需由Gucci 的工匠们 花费两天半时间打造,该鞋采用摒弃鞋 垫的圆筒形结构,使其分外轻巧、柔软与 舒适。鞋的架构完成之后,再由色彩专家 对皮革进行手工染色。赋予每对鞋独一 无二的外观。虽然马衔扣乐福鞋刚推出 时只提供保守的黑色、棕色和白色款,但 如今已有多达45 种款式可供选择,其中 包括经典色彩与明亮色彩的漆皮、麂皮、 鳄鱼皮、蟒蛇皮与印花帆布版本。 马衔扣乐福鞋的女士版本在1968 年推出,并自那时起成为Sophia Loren 与Jodie Foster等女星的心头好,后者 曾被拍摄到着该鞋滑雪的镜头。将时间 拉近,摩洛哥王室的年轻成员、业余马术 选手Charlotte Casiraghi,也在2012 年的马术主题广告中穿着该款乐福鞋。 globalblue.com

作为一款延续几十载的产品,马衔 扣乐福鞋经历了各种跌宕起伏,有时也 是字面意义上的。在1970 年代,男士的 粗 跟鞋变得几乎与女 士 粗 跟鞋 一样 盛 行,到了 90 年代,又演化成轮胎花纹样 式的齿轮状鞋底。在流行摇摆之间,辨识 度经久不衰的马衔扣成为地位的标志, 正如莱昂纳多在电影《华尔街之狼》中穿 着的乐福鞋所展示的一般。 马衔扣乐福 鞋 或已走 过辉煌之 极 的巅峰时刻,但这种独一无二的乐福鞋 款式已然成为永不落伍的经典。毕竟, 这是被纽约大都会博物馆收入永久性馆 藏的唯一一款鞋履。Gucci 的创意总监 Frida Giannin通过去年为庆贺这款鞋 诞生60 周年而推出的全新1953系列, 宣告马衔扣乐福鞋重新回归其休闲风格 定位。 这款经过重新塑造的乐福鞋,可与 从卷裤脚卡其裤、连衣裙到燕尾服等任 何服饰搭配,并在全世界范围内聚集了 一众新拥护者,其中包括时尚领军人物 Poppy Delevingne与李冰冰,还有时 髦代表Idris Elba与James Franco等 演员。新生代们正在重新发现这款标志 性的马衔扣乐福鞋所流露的轻松魅力: 对于这样一款源自经典、又面向未来的 鞋款而言,一切正该如此。 gucci.com

とにかくパーフェクト

控えめで贅沢、そしてあくまでシック。 着こなしの上手なイタリア女性の一部 の隙も無いスタイルが世界中で賞賛さ れるのも不思議はない。クレア・コール ソンがレポートする。 各国民のスタイルを解 析するとした

ら、お洒落なイタリア女性の典型的な ワードローブはおそらくこんな感じに なるだろう。パリッとしたシャツ、高級 カシミアのセーター(たぶん美しい色 を一式揃えている)、巧みなカットの スーツ、シンプルなパンプスかモカシ ンが数足。そして、それらとバランスを とるのが母から受け継いだジュエリー で、バングルが数点とカクテルリング が一つ二つ。贅沢で古典的なルックス で、年齢や時代、場面、場所を問わな い装いだ。 イタリア人が数十年かけて洗練し 完成したこのルックスは、シンプルだ が、本当に着こなすにはある程度の気 迫が必要だ。 「素敵なスタイルは内面 から。イタリア人は、努力をしなくても 天賦の優雅さが備わっている」と、か つてミラノに住んでいたスタイリストの カルメン・ボルゴノヴォは説明する。 「 自然体で、自分のスタイルについても 気楽に構えています。そして、控えめで 時代を超えた高級感を大事にするの です。」ただ、ボルゴノヴォにとって、イ タリア女性がこのルックスを他にまね のできない巧みさで実現する決定的 な理由は一つ。 「イタリア女性がどこ までもシックなのは、決して一生懸命 努力しているように見えない点が鍵。 慎みと洗練のバランスが完璧なので す。」 それは、大手靴メーカーのトッズ のオーナー、ディエゴ・デッラ・ヴァッ レが制作委託した本『イタリアンタッ チ( Italian Touch)』が見事に記録 したスタイルだ。この華麗な本は、こ の上なくスタイリッシュなイタリア人一 族を素晴らしい画像で記録している。 異世代が集い、パリッとしたシャツに チノパン、カーシュー、レイバンのサン グラスといった姿で映っている写真を 納めたこの本は、自然なセンスの良さ を見習いたいという向きには格好の出 発点だ。


148 常に職人技と品質を大切にする イタリアのファッション業界が発展し てきたのも、このスタイルが基礎にな っている。この夏、ロンドンのヴィクト リア&アルバート博物館でイタリアフ ァッション界の歴史を1950 年代から 現在までたどる展覧会が催されたが、 際立っていたのは、最高級品を作るこ とを基本に事業を築き上げてきた職 人気質の生産者のスキルだ。贅沢極ま るカシミアやソフトでしなやかな革製 のバッグ、手作りの靴、イタリアの紡績 工場で作られた美しい生地などだ。こ うした伝統技能の賜物が真に評価さ れるようになったのは20世紀半ばのこ とで、以来、世界中で認められ、尊ば れるようになった。 今秋、イタリア人のスタイルに改 めて注目が集まっているのは、とびき りスタイリッシュなマレラ・アグネリの ワードローブの影響だ。トルーマン・カ ポーティが1966 年に主催した伝説的 な「白と黒の舞踏会」でまとったミラ・ ショーンのビーズ付きカフタンガウンに しろ、自家用ヨットの上で着ていたピ ンクのタオル地のプレイスーツなどリ ラックスした装いにしろ、アグネリの姿 にはすっきりしたカットによるシルエッ トと大胆なラインが醸し出すシンプル な美しさがある。シンプルといっても、 つまらなくはない。それは彼女が贅沢 な素材、豊かな色彩、美しいアクセサ リーを使っているからだ。着こなし上 手の同邦人と同じく、アグネリは調和と エレガンスについては天性のセンスを 持っていた。 アグネリが選ぶのは(少なくとも 昼間については)とびきり典雅な服装 が多いが、要素のまとめ方に軽やかさ と気楽さがある。というわけで、完璧 なスタイル要素を買い求めるなら、こ んな感じになるだろう。まずは、いかに も贅沢感のあるコートだ。すぐ思い浮 かぶのが、 マックスマーラのキャメル色 globalblue.com

のベルト付コート。今秋冬シーズンのコ レクションから、幅広襟で艶やかな革 ベルトを結ぶタイプのものなどはどう だろうか。その下に、この上なくシンプ ルなクリーム色のセーター、完璧なカ ットのパンツを合わせれば、たちまち シックなルックスが出来上がる。 イタリアは巧みな仕立てが世界 的に有名だ。ジョルジオ・アルマーニ がこだわるその仕立ては優美で柔ら かい。この秋、アルマーニは少しだぶっ としたパンツをやや短めのシルエット にカットしている。だが、本当に長持ち するものとなると、伝統的な仕立ての ブレザーと美しいパンツがどうしても 欠かせない。 イタリア女性はプラダやミュウミ ュウのショーで幾度となく実証されて いる通り、ボーイッシュなシャツの着こ なしも上手だが、シャツにはいつもアイ ロンがピシッとかかっている。シャツの 上にはカシミアが必要だ。撚糸の本数 が多い厚手のカシミアは、大衆向けの 安い品より遥かに丈夫で持ちがいい。 マーロなどのブランドでは、世界でも 最高級の品を生産している。 アクセサリーはシンプルに。ボッ テガ・ヴェネタなどから出ているチョ コレート革のイントレチャート(編み込 み)のショルダーバッグなら、間違いな くキマる。時代遅れになることもなく、 おそらく一生持つだろう。トッズやカー シューの標準的なモカシンが数足あ れば、仕上げは完璧だ。何と言ったっ て、キャメル色のスエードのローファー の上に、薄く日焼けしたくるぶしが見 え隠れするのほどイタリアらしい姿が あるだろうか。 tods.com, maxmara.com, armani.com, prada.com, miumiu.com, malo.it, bottegaveneta.com, carshoe.com

68: Interior Life 今どきの店舗デザイン

何か 特別なプラスアルファのある店 舗インテリアを創造することにかけ ては、イタリアのデザイナーは第一級 だ。スティーヴン・ドイグが小売店の様 相を変えた巨匠の創作を紹介する。 標準的な棚、輝くガラスの陳列ケー ス、上品な洋服掛けといった造りは、 ショップデザインの世界ではもう古 い。競争の激しい今日のファッション 業界では、各ブランドがそれより上を 行き、ショッピング体験を何かしら幻 想的なものに変貌させている。あっと 驚くようなアートインスタレーション、 垂直庭園、信じがたい建築の妙技、 魔術のような感覚を取り入れて、消費 者の小売環境との関わり方を変えてい るのだ。そして、その傾向が最も顕著 なのがイタリアだ。 革新的な商品陳列スペースを探 す世界中のファッションデザイナーか ら声がかかる人気店舗デザイナーの 一人がピーター・マリノ。その実績が 評価されて、ファッション界のAリスト に名を連ねている。イタリアでは、彼 のエレガントなデザインスタイルがジ ョルジオ・アルマーニのミラノ店で見ら

れる。アルマーニの自宅をデザインし た縁があるから、特に意外ではない。 もう一つの例は、エルメネジルド・ゼニ アの店舗だ。ここでは、大階段、大理 石と石灰石の石板、マリノに特徴的な トーンの実体感豊かな素材が広々とし たスペースにふんだんに使われ、落ち 着いた静かな高級感のある環境を創 り出している。 2014 年にブルガリが創業130 年 を記念してローマ旗艦店の改装を決 めた時も、選ばれたのはマリノだっ た。オープンにあたってマリノは、 「ロ ーマのように永遠性があり、ブルガリ のお得意客のようにセクシーなコンセ プトを新たに考えつくのに、持てる限 りのスキルを注ぎ込んだ」と話してい る。そうして生まれたのが、グレーとグ リーンのアフリカ産大理石を使い、洗 練を絵に描いたような落ち着いた空 間だ。イタリアの首都ローマはマリノ にはお馴染みだ。奇想天外なルイ・ヴ ィトンの店舗もデザインしているが、こ こではローマの映画史をテーマに店 内映画館を設けて、イタリアの名監督 による短編映画を上映している。これ ほど実験的な店舗デザインはそうそう ない。 だが、ハイヒールを買うにしても 必須アイテムのドレスを選ぶにしても、 それを単なる買い物でなく「体験」に した例がずいぶん前からあるのは、や はりミラノ。元雑誌編集者で画商のカ ルラ・ソッツァーニが1991年に創設し た10コルソコモが、新タイプの店舗の 先駆けだ。元々フィアットの工場だっ たこの店は、ファッションとアートを融 合し、世界一流のデザイナーによる選 り抜きの洋服を置くと共に、最先端の アート展も開催している。ソッツァー ニは、デザインストアにカフェ、レコー ド店、プチホテル、ルーフガーデンを 導入して小売店のイメージを塗り替え た。その全ての開発を監督したのは、

タイルをインスピレーションとするホー スビット・ローファーは、1953 年に息 子のアルドが発売。以来、この靴はハ リウッドの映画スターや有名スポーツ 選手、政治家、大物実業家、世界に名 をはせるプレイボーイの足元を飾り、そ れに伴ってフットウェアの世界を一変 させた。 今や世界の有名ブランドとなった グッチは、1921年にフィレンツェで馬 具商として起業。かつて鞍の固定に使 われた腹帯にヒントを得た赤と緑のス トライプから、二つの輪と金棒から成 る馬ハミ(ホースビット)のモチーフま で、乗馬をテーマとしたディテールが コレクションに広く登場する。ホースビ ットはグッチのバッグやベルトに使わ れ、トム・フォード時代にはカットアウ トドレスにも見られたが、やはり名作 ローファーの前甲に付いているのが一 番しっくりくる。 ホースビット・ローファーはしな やかな革で作ったスリップオンタイプ の靴で、靴先はアーモンド形、靴底は スリムで、甲に金棒が渡されたデザイ ンだ。見た目はシンプルだが、このロ ーファーが男性の装いに与えた影響 は大きい。グッチが1953年にこのロー ファーを発売した時、事実上、紳士靴

の全く新しいカテゴリーを生み出した といっていい。それまでの紳士靴とい えば、きちんとしているか極くカジュア ルかの両極端しかなかったが、モカシ ンの履きやすさと礼装用靴の洗練を 合わせたこの高級感あるスリップオン が元祖スマートカジュアルシューズと なり、それに世界を股に掛けるジェッ ト族が飛びついたのだ。ホースビット の独特のきらめきは、クラーク・ゲーブ ルからフレッド・アステア、ピーター・ セラーズ、ジョン・ウェインまで、ハリ ウッドスターの間でヨーロピアン・シッ クのシンボルとなり、このスタイルはま もなく主演女優たちにも広まった。た だ、アイコニックになったのは、何も有 名人ご用達だからという理由だけでは ない。ホースビット・ローファーは昔か ら、リヴィエラで素足につっかける気 楽な履き方から、ロンドンやミラノの 街で洗練されたスーツに合わせる履き 方まで、ヨーロピアンスタイルのエキゾ チズムが漂う憧れのアイテムなのだ。 この靴のスタイルはユニークな構 造もその一部だ。グッチの職人が一足 一足を二日半かけて作るのだが、イン ソールのないチュブラー構造のおかげ で、軽くしなやかで履き心地がよい。 靴の組み立てが済んだら、染色専門 の職人が皮を手染めして一足一足にユ ニークな風合いを与える。当初は無難 な黒、茶、白の革製だけだったホース ビット・ローファーも現在では45種を 超え、古典的な色から明るい色まで、 素材もパテントレザー、スエード、クロ コダイル、パイソン、プリントのキャン バスまで様々だ。 婦人 用が登 場したのは 1968 年 で、以来、ソフィア・ローレンやジョデ ィ・フォスターなどのスターが愛用して いる。ジョディはホースビット・ローフ ァーを履いてスケートボードを楽しむ 姿をスナップ写真に撮られている。さ らに最近は乗馬をテーマとした2012


152 年の広告キャンペーンで、モナコ公女 で馬術のアマチュア選手でもあるシャ ルロット・カシラギがこのローファーを 履いている。 何十年にもわたる長寿商品なら 浮き沈みはあって当然だが、このホー スビット・ローファーもご多分に漏れ ず、アップダウンが(時には文字通り) あった。1970 年代には紳士靴のブロ ックヒールは婦人用とほとんど変わら ない高さだったが、90年代にはガッチ リしたタイヤのような靴底になった。そ んな移り変わりの中で、ホースビットは 一目でわかるステータスシンボルとな る。最近の映画「ウルフ・オブ・ウォー ルストリート」でレオナルド・ディカプ リオが履いていたローファーがまさに それだ。 ホースビットをあしらったデザイン が全盛の時期が何度かあったが、もと もとのローファースタイルの真に時代 を超える魅力は今も健在だ。何しろ、 ニューヨークのメトロポリタン美術館 の永久所蔵コレクションに加えられた 唯一の靴なのだから。グッチのクリエ イティブ・ダイレクター、フリーダ・ジャ ンニーニは昨年、このローファーの発 売 60周年を記念した新1953年コレク ションで、ホースビット・ローファーを 本来のスイートスポット「休日の装い」 に回帰させた。 ロールアップしたチノパンからド レスやタキシードまで何にでも合う新 イメージのローファーは、スタイルリー ダーのポピー・デルヴィーニュやリ・ ビンビン、スタイリッシュな俳優のイ ドリス・エルバやジェームズ・フランコ など、世界中で新たなファンを続々獲 得している。アイコニックなホースビッ ト・ローファーの気楽な魅力を全く新 しい世代が再発見しているのは、過去 から現在にまたがる靴にいかにもふさ わしい。 gucci.com globalblue.com

MAX MARA Inspired by a passion for tailoring passed down by his mother and great-grandmother, Achille Maramotti founded Max Mara in 1951 in the Italian city of Reggio Emilia. He began with a line of high-end coats which were inspired stylistically by French haute couture but made using cutting-edge industrial tailoring techniques. In this, Maramotti had discovered an exciting new area of fashion. His methods created more styles, cuts and colours than ever before, allowing him to reach a far wider audience. His clothes gained immediate and overwhelming recglobalblue.com

ognition, and within a few short years the brand was opening new lines under the umbrella group of Max Mara. Today Max Mara is one of the largest fashion houses in the world, and the Max Mara Group – which consists of 19 different lines – is the biggest clothing company in Italy. More than 60 years after Maramotti made his frst coats, the brand remains at the forefront of fashion, producing beautiful clothing in almost every category imaginable, from the classic to the experimental. hl Max Mara, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, 20121 Milan, +39 02 7600 8849, maxmara.com * for map go to page 109
