ITALIAN DENIM & DESIGN
On the occasion of the Fuori Salone, Busnelli with Candiani Denim and Dondup propose an original synergy between fashion and design.
The timeless modernity and intuitive power of Fiocco and Armadillo meet for the first time the energy and creative freshness that have made Candiani Denim famous in the international panorama of eco-sustainable textile production. The result is of great impact.
The appointment is during the design week, at the Candiani Denim flagship store, in the heart of Milan in Piazza Mentana 3, where Candiani Denim, Dondup, and Busnelli join in “Italian Denim & Design”. In the name of elegance and modernity the new Candiani Denim flagship store, recently designed by the architect Mattia Pareschi, becomes the perfect setting for hosting two historic Busnelli armchairs, designed in the 1970s by Gianni Pareschi: Armadillo and Fiocco ; two cult pieces, which through the Denim coating become a whimsical reinterpretation.
Fiocco, the sinuous design of the curved metal tubular structure, is sheathed with an elastic Denim fabric, just as the Armadillo armchair, in a Limited Edition of 25 pieces, literally changes leather by amplifying the Denim effect, thanks to the use of the material ironically played by combining the front with the back of the fabric.
In the shop window the historic pieces of Busnelli, Armadillo, Baffo, Fiocco and Libro will be on display, the latter two being part of the permanent collection of the MOMA in New York.
An encounter that confirms once again how fashion and design can always find new and unexpected links, a synthesis between the past and the present of the past and the future.
