The Vitale Barberis Canonico wool mill, one of the oldest in the world with more than 350 years’ history and with the thirteenth generation of the same family at the helm, presents the new Spring/Summer 2019 collection at the Milano Unica XXVI edition.

Always look stellar – Tips for looking and feeling great

Your looking and feeling great doesn’t have to rely on cosmic randomness or a special event taking place, which you were invited to. In order to look your best, all you need to do is follow a couple of guidelines. These are simple tips that will help you push the envelope and always look as good as you possibly can, and feeling the part as well. People have always been attracted to beauty and looking beautiful, otherwise there wouldn’t be things like Dore Aesthetics. But even so, many overlook simple things like these:

Beauty is a message

Beauty is really a cocktail of divine proportions and harmony between the inner and outer world of man that gives meaning to his being and is rightly referred to as a synonym for truth and good*. Relative, however, it is subject to time, morals, and, to a great extent, to the generally accepted norms. In this sense, it can be said that beauty is a kind of aesthetic consensus of the majority about the unique qualities of the minority. Beauty is also a message that challenges taste, imagination and tolerance. In order to determine what is beautiful, we need to realize that it (the beautiful thing) should be liked and surely to cause delight and trepidation. In fact, in most cases, beauty is a wonderful combination of spirit and matter, shape and color, fluid and provocation that awakens admiration, joy and passion.

Missoni Winter 2017 collection

Composed Dynamism. Order materializes from disorder. Sculptural contours delineate geometric figures. Intersecting lines contrast the material with the immaterial. Tonal glows and slumbering darkness surrender to the spirituous play of light. Missoni’s A/W 2017 Menswear Collection draws inspiration from the concrete barriers, metallic enclosures, oxidized mazes and jutting appendages of the subterranean and industrial networks that form the skeletal structures on which our indifferent urban surrounds are erected. This is the backdrop upon which this season’s Missoni Man comes to life.

At collection’s end, a cluster of black looks were elevated both in fabrication and decoration—they included an all-black Hendrix-flavored hussar’s jacket—but they were still black.

Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2016 - The elegance of men

Charles Darwin in 1859 gave us a theory of evolution, the science of natural selection, an argument for the ‘survival of the fittest’, and a story of how man triumphs. He was an avid explorer in his youth, travelling the world for field study, discovering and collecting specimens, making a Victorian enquiry into who we are. For Autumn/Winter 2016, the collection embraces the spirit of travel and a world newly open to exploration and the gathering of collectibles, but in the way of the McQueen tradition of flora, fauna and memento mori. This is a collection obsessed with the elegance that ‘survives’ the struggle for life.
