INTERVIEW WITH ANTONIO GRIMALDI

Antonio Grimaldi, thanks to his fall/winter collection 2015/2016 presented in Paris, he leads us into a dreamlike journey of forms: spirals, concentric circles that blend colors like black, ivory, pink and mauve alternating with green to electric blue. These marvelous games are taken to the creation of clothing characterized by an alternation of symmetry with asymmetry, volume and linearity. Thus was born an urban chic woman dressing with natural elegance in clothes inspired by the architecture of the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna in Rome.   When did you first become enthralled in the world of fashion? Since I was a young girl I loved fashion, art, and design. I frequented the Institute of Art specializing in publicity graphics. My passion was born across the collaboration with tailors in my home city, Salerno. After having acquired experience in all the techniques of craftsmanship and tailoring I decided to transfer to Rome to complete my fashion formation. After significant experience in some high fashion houses of the capital, I participated with my former stylist partner in the Semaine della Haute Couture Parisienne (Fashion Week, Paris).   In 2010 I decided to give life to the “Antonio Grimaldi” label and with renewed enthusiasm and a strong creative thrust I cultivated my passion for high fashion and ready-to-wear with which I showed during the fashion week in Paris. Antonio Grimaldi Portrait Antonio Grimaldi Portrait What have you tried to show at Fashion Week, Paris? Paris is one of the international fashion capitals. It is not the first time that I presented my collections in Paris and each new collection is for me a new creative and emotional adventure. Which are the staple pieces of a ready-to-wear collection presented in Paris? In this year’s fall/winter collection presented in Paris the kimono jacket is the top must-have that cannot be missing from the female wardrobe next winter. The balloon skirt turned in to a micro jacket is also creating a stylish glam. Indispensible for next summer: 60s shorts.             Antonio Grimaldi Portrait Antonio Grimaldi Portrait Antonio Grimaldi Portrait Antonio Grimaldi Portrait. Describe the woman who wears clothes from the Antonio Grimaldi line? Woman with a capital W. Certanily femininity, but also a touch of veiled irony are the essential characteristics of the Antonio Grimaldi woman. A cultured woman who loves art in her clothes and knows how to confront life’s challenges with determination without forgetting her sensuality. If you were a fabric what would you be? Without a doubt, chiffon. I love the lightness, the ethereal effect that the fabric creates on the body, the game of transparency and the possibility to embellish it with embroidery like that taught by the tradition of Haute Couture Italian artisa follow me Follow my blog with Bloglovin Antonio Grimaldi Portrait Antonio Grimaldi Portrait
