Andrea Incontri 2013/2014 all illustrations by Ivo Bisignano, text by Stefania Seoni

Dear Diane, dear
shaded viewers,

 Schermata 2013-02-21 a 19.10.53

  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.

The reference
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.
