Dear Diane, dear
After the show I exchanged my impressions on the collection with Ivo, we were
both impressed by the stylistic maturity of Andrea Incontri, the extreme grace, the whispered elegance, the attention to detail.
After our discussion, Ivo
created these beautiful illustrations.
Our common impression was an association with
a composed feminity , a precise elegance,
an artistic sensitivity that belongs to the
iconography of the bourgeoisie of the past ;
an intelligent and conscious woman.
arrives from the impeccable allure of
Italian actresses from the sixties.
Mangano comes to mind with her composure, her attitude
of vagueness , her abstract grace .
The volumes and
lines (trapeze) are measured, and never fall in the excess,
Some of the day dresses make me think of a home party but are
revisited for the evening, with unusual combinations and overlays .The effect
, despite the clear reference to this grace, this rigor, this elegance are contemporary. Without ever getting into a mesh filter, but rather with a femininity that comes from deep within.
later Stefania and Ivo..
