A special catwalk show-event at the Fortezza staged by DUST Magazine highlights the evolution of formal wear
Formalità / una questione di qualità
Fortezza da Basso, Piazzale delle Ghiaia
“The Italian title that we chose for the event could seem very classic, almost academic,” say Luca Guarini and Luigi Vitali, respectively Creative Director and Editor-in-Chief of DUST Magazine. “In reality, its meaning is dual, taking its inspiration from a 1986 song lyric by the band CCCP: Io sto bene [I feel good], the voice of a generational crisis that once again becomes relevant in the disenchantment of present-day times. We live in a context characterized by social, economic, and climatic insecurity, where it is difficult to perceive who we are and what we want. We imagine the man who wears new formal today as someone who asks himself about the appearance and meaning of things, and who is thrown off center by uncertainties that call into question the future. In this uncertain progress towards a new decade, tradition and innovation remain the only guides, and quality, in all of its many meanings, the example to follow”.
