The Brand

“My brand wants to free women from preconceptions, prejudices and stereotypes. He decided in their final intentions, changing in the desire to wear different garments but that enhance the big or small curves that they are, the more or less marked wrinkles. “Marco Rambaldi

Rambaldi starts from here with his stylistic reasoning, but in a post-contemporary key. A changing image, as changing, is the reference woman, staying between new freshness and memories of the past.

“We Also Want Roses”

The cultural and sexual revolutions are the concept of the creative project of the Bologna born, Marco Rambaldi, presented during the AltaRoma edition of January 2018.

The theme of sexual liberation has been debated at night but it is still a taboo. Knowing how to tell through a collection is even more difficult and to do it, you need to have enough sensitivity.

Cropped frames, faded covers and poster fragments: the Rambaldi collection marks the unequivocal seventies aestheticism, underlining it with vibrant prints and colors. The “revolution” of the Fall/Winter 2018-19 line drawn by the stylist highlights the social involution through playful and light items but from the revolutionary aplomb.

The Woman of Marco Rambaldi

On the Fall/Winter 2018-19 catwalk both mature women, like the Valerie transsexual friend, and young models parade: the Rambaldi leaders do not know their age and do not have a defined target.

The sexual liberation of the seventies, source of inspiration for the Fall/Winter Season 2018-19, overturns the taboo of today. Women’s rights, feminist struggles and pornography are the focal themes of the collection. Printed on fabrics, moments set in jacquard, jackets with male cuts, crochet trimmings and tie and dye prints, all to enhance and make the woman free to express herself and always be herself.

Mina, Ornella Vanoni, Anna Oxa, are just some of the divas representing the Rambaldi woman. They are proposals on knitwear, they are the music that accompanied the show and are the muses of femininity and sexual freedom of the 2018 collection.

Made in Italy

The Milanese office is composed of the stylist, the right-hand man Giulia Geromel and Andrea Batilla, a historical fashion journalist. Lately he has joined Rambaldi’s fiancé, Filippo Giuliani, who takes care of the styling. Production remains in Italy, in a town between Milan and Bologna. Above all they are creative Made in Italy, not only for the place where the products are developed, but because the creativity, all the history and the aesthetics behind it is Italian. A sincere Made in Italy.

&Quad;She devoted herself to teaching about gardening and the art of flower arrangements. In 1997, she published A Passion for Flowers (HarperCollins) in which she applied to floral composition the lessons that she had learned in the fields of style and elegance: “I can’t tell you how many times I have seen an outfit ruined because of bad accessorizing; the same thing is true for flowers: even the loveliest flowers ‘don’t work’ if they are put in the wrong vase or set against an inappropriate background.” Two years later, she appeared in bookstores again with Winter Notebook (again, HarperCollins).

Rockabilly

Blinding colors, tuft of hair on the forehead, shirts with leather laces and a silver bolo tie, pointed-toe boots, especially in snakeskin, even better still if studded with rivets, leather jackets, jeans that will live forever, skin-tight pants, big collrs.

He would present his collections at SAMIA, the apparel fair of Turin. He was the first to dye beaver skins in fashionable colors. He was also the first to make massive use of advertising, forcing his competitors to adopt this strategy. This gave a strong kickstart to the sector. When Francesco Rivella died, his employees continued to run the company, but not for long.

Raincoat

More than a clothing piece, an element of style, especially in the world of cinema. It identifies typologies of men, situations, and emotions. In the collective imagery, it’s worn by action men: detective or gangsters. But it also appears on the arm of British and American gentlemen. It is often used to shroud the silhouettes of secretaries and starlets who, during the film, turn into stars and heroines. Its simplicity and plain character means it does not distract from the face of its wearer, even if buttoned right up or the collar is turned up, for example, on Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca and Gene Kelly in Singing in the Rain. But also Michèle Morgan, Audrey Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe, who created a different type of woman when wearing a raincoat. It is also standard wear an entire gallery of policemen, detectives, and police chiefs: from Maigret to Inspector Clouseau, Kojak and, ironically, Columbo. The raincoat, a garment present in men’s and women’s wardrobes, was born towards the end of the 19th century. Like all clothing items, it follows the rules of fashion, and, though keeping its basic characteristics, it varies in width, length, materials, and colors according to the moment. Through the years it has become identified with particular brands and styles: Barbour, Burberry, gabardine, the trench-coat, Mackintosh, Ciré and K-Way.

He worked for Bulgari, Chanel, Seiko, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, Max Factor, and Danskin. He showed his work in many exhibits, at the Metropolitan Museum in New York and at the Venice Biennale in 1981.
