Spooky knit

 

Oversized, loose fitting Shetland wool knit from Junya Watanabe, Comme Des Garcons, with ghost like silhouette: isn’t this perfect for spincing up an Halloween afternoon just to get into the party mood?? I am crushing over the chunky ribbing and distressed frayed finnish that mix sophistication with goth.

You can get it Here…or you can borrow your neighbour cat and go DIY…!

So? Have you chosen your favourite one? And I guess that by now you are curious to know more about these talented Italian guys. That’s why I asked them for an interview! Read it along.

 

 

Who are 0770 and how did your project come about?

0770 are Enzo Pirozzi, fashion costume designer with photographer Irene Di Caprio. We have been collaborating together long before the 0770 project saw the light, as we are partner also in private life. We work together in every project we are involved, no matter if it is photography, costume or fashion. We learned each other’s job and we created a sort of mini-team. We started 0770 to say what we want to say in our way! The name comes from our passion for rock music. 0770, July 1970. It was the last summer that the three legends of rock (Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison) were still alive. That was a charming period made of cultural revolutions and music was the thing that was keeping it all together. We consider ourselfes “not politically correct” because we don’t care about being mainstream. Our accessories are made of skulls (the music heritage), wings (our freedom), and dicks (our irony). From corsets to fancy dresses, we designed our latest entire collection mixing leather with fleece. We chosed to use fleece to make a statement, to shout out that we are different. I can wear a studded fleece and leather dress to a theater show and feeling at ease.

 

 

What is the starting point for the creation of your jewelry, fashion collections and accessories?

Our starting point is the anthropologic study of style tribes. Not only by the books but also by people watching.

 

What inspires you?

Inspiration can come from different sources. We can find the right input in a dream, in a feeling, watching a film or an artwork. Many ideas come from our continuos study of costume history and from the theater environment.

 

Who would you like to wear your creations?

Asia Argento, Carmen Consoli, Skin and Courtney Love, true icons with a strong personality.

 

Which song/artist better describe your work?

The artists and songs that go perfectly with our work are Radiohead…and also songs like Angie by Rolling Stones and La domenica delle salme by Fabrizio De André.

 

What do you think style is about?

Style is the balance between what you are and what you show to others. The authenticity of our real self. With the words of an icon of the last century: “Fashion fades, only style remains the same”.

 

If style was a place it would be…

Every place that brings new artistic and cultural stirs.

 

And if it was a person? Who’s your style icon?

Definitely we have more than one: Courtney Love, Mick Jagger, Elsa Schiapparelli, Frida Kahlo.

 

What is IN and what is OUT…

IN is being avantgarde, going against the flow, being the black sheep and emerge from the herd.

OUT is following the crowd, being conformist because it easier, being a herd of white sheeps.

 

Who are your fantasy dinner party guests?

Alexander McQueen, Thom Yorke, Keith Richards, Fabrizio De André, Amleto, Pierpaolo Pasolini, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Maradona, Guido Crepax, Enki Bilal, Salomè, Charles Bukowski, Gala and Salvador Dalì.

 

Favourite dish…

Ziti di Gragnano, which is a typical pasta from southern Italy, with Neapolitan Ragù.

 

You are from Naples, in the south of Italy. If I came to visit your city what is an absolute must see there?

Cappella Sansevero, with the awesome objets d’art by Corradini and Sanmartino; Napoli sotterranea; antro della Sibilla (Cave of the Sibyl) Averno Lake, the places of Ade’s entrance; Spaccanapoli and its caos; the performing art center Lanificio25; the Spanish quarters, the ancient heart of Naples, where the old civilization collides with the daily life; the greek roman theatre, hidden in the ground reachable from “basso”  vico Cinquesanti.

 

Any plans for the future?

At the moment we are planning to distribute our accessories line in Italy and soon we will open a showroom in Milano. Also, in a year time we are planning to start a pret a porter line.

A day shooting Maite

 

The day before yesterday I have spent the entire day with this gorgeous model from Madrid, art directing the shooting of the catalogue for an Italian fashion brand. She has been modelling with us already a few times but this was the first time for me to work with her. She’s not just very beautiful but also funny and laid back, like all the Spanish people are…and very expressive too, such a gorgeous girl to work with! Here some shots of her and all the crew I took during the breaks.
