The other night I was reading the March issue of Architectural Digest (a few months behind) and they did a little write up of this incredible exhibit, “Roberto Capucci: Art Into Fashion”, that hit the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Roberto Capucci is an Italian fashion designer and artist who is widely known for his use of color, form, and materials to create extremely innovative silhouettes. It’s no wonder he work was used in an exhibit. Do you see this stuff?!
The exhibit, the first showcase of his work in the United States, features sketches as well as over eighty works. The pieces range from being created when he was a young boy to the most recent one being created in 2007. Capucci opened his first couture salon in Rome at age twenty (um, wow) and by age twenty-six the International Press had named him “Italy’s Best Designer”.
Capucci describes his work as being “a study in form” inspired by art. He has also talked about it as “an assault – of art, beauty, color, emotion, music, nature, and poetry”. Preeeettyyycoool, huh?
