The challenge to interpret fashion show as an exhibition, by museographical planning and working alongside Arbesser’s collections in various collaboration projects between art, fashion and architecture.
“Models sat on design-classic chairs by Austrian designers, in front of paintings by Austrian Hermann Nitsch. That’s what you call a theme.” (Matthew Schneier – The New York Times)
“This artistic coupling is tough to execute because it requires designer and artist to be kindred spirits in using colour, texture – and imagination. Valsecchi art and Arbesser’s fashion, curated by Cipelletti, seemed a perfect fit”. (Suzy Menkes, VOGUE)
“The two artistic spirits were working together to display Mr. Arbesser’s designs against a collection of Modernist art” – “Using their artistic vision, the two men started pairing clothes with objects, and achieved some fascinating results.” – “The result was arresting and original, an excellent example of two minds bouncing off one other.” (Suzy Menkes, The New York Times)
