Fashion, Film, and Music Collide at Pitti’s Opening Andrea Bocelli Concert

-------

Pitti

Spring ’15 marks the 60th anniversary of the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana, and thus, a very special edition of Pitti Immagine. In addition to guest brand Z Zegna’s forthcoming show, presentations from up-and-comers like Au Jour Le Jour, and a three-museum installation by Francesco Vezzoli, houses with Florentine roots such as Gucci, Ferragamo, Pucci, and Ermanno Scervino are hosting bashes and celebratory exhibitions. Needless to say, this installment of the Italian fashion fair needed to kick off with gusto, and it did just that last night at the Opera di Firenze.

The evening began with I Costumi Della Sartoria Tirelli—a show comprising of costumes from the storied Roman atelier created between the 1950s through the present. I was particularly taken by the lavish scarlet gown and gilded, pearl-embellished crown worn by Monica Bellucci in Terry Gilliam’s 2005 flick, The Brothers Grimm, as well as the ruffled rose suit donned by Donald Sutherland in Federico Fellini’s 1976 film, Casanova. The latter earned its designer Danilo Donati an Oscar in 1977.

Following a stroll through Tirelli’s sartorial fantasyland, guests including Pitti CEO Raffaello Napoleone and Suzy Menkes were ushered into the theater, where we were treated to a concert from Andrea Bocelli and Patrizia Orciani. You didn’t need to speak Italian to be stirred by the pair’s performance—in fact, Bocelli’s “Ave Maria” encore moved more than a few attendees to tears.

Walking out of the theater, Menkes commented that, while packing at 2 a.m. for fashion events like Pitti, it’s easy to forget how remarkable they can be. If this opener is any indication, we’re in for quite a week.

Runway to Red Carpet: Gucci Girls and Sparkles Galore

-------

Beyonce and Blake LivelyThis week, it was Gucci, rather than film premieres, that drew the stars out in New York. Creative director Frida Giannini made a rare trip to the Big Apple to host a duo of parties, which were attended by Gucci-clad celebs including Beyoncé, Blake Lively, and Kate Mara.

On Tuesday, Giannini and co. feted Chime for Change, a charity founded by Giannini, Beyoncé, and Salma Hayek Pinault. Blake Lively showed her support in a mod mustard Fall ’14 Gucci frock with a leather-lined keyhole cutout down the front. Not to be outdone, Queen Bey looked flawless in a one-of-a-kind plunging white Gucci jumpsuit. The following evening, Kate Mara joined the fashion crowd in celebrating Gucci’s long-anticipated cosmetics launch. She chose a burgundy A-line number with a leather bodice from the Fall ’14 runway for the affair.

In London on Tuesday, stars turned out for Glamour‘s Women of the Year Awards. After making a splash on the red carpet, Naomi Campbell, Taylor Schilling, and Sarah Hyland snagged trophies. Schilling, who took home the Editor’s Special Award, and Hyland, who earned the Comedy Actress accolade, both opted for shimmery looks. Schilling went for Peter Pilotto’s plunging silver-sequined Fall ’14 dress, while Hyland opted for a sparkling Gucci Resort ’14 shift. Campbell, the TV Personality Award winner, was the most memorable in a red-and-black Alexander McQueen Spring ’14 feathered dress.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

California Chrome Jockey Loves Gucci, Shopping Sprees

Victor EspinozaJockeys know how to dress. Or at least California Chrome’s jockey, Victor Espinoza, who will ride the Thoroughbred in Saturday’s Belmont Stakes with the aim of winning the first Triple Crown in thirty-six years, does. The athlete told WWD that he’s partial to custom Gucci and Ferragamo shoes, and if he wins the big bucks, the spoils will go toward a shopping spree on Fifth Avenue or Rodeo Drive. If that’s not motivation to cross the finish line first, we don’t know what is.

Frida Giannini Is Staying Put

-------

Frida GianniniFor the past few months, rumors have been swirling that Frida Giannini was about to be replaced in her post as creative director at Gucci , with Riccardo Tisci often touted as her potential successor. Now, Giannini has addressed the talk in an interview with WWD. “These rumors are self-generated, and even engaged François-Henri Pinault, who came to Rome and told me they were not true,” she said. “Actually, he was concerned that the rumors would not let me work serenely.” In fact, Giannini notes, she has just renewed her contract with the storied Italian house and is busy preparing to celebrate her tenth year at its helm in 2015.
