Briget Riley, Vasarely and Esher were illusionists in optical art. The forms they created is what inspired Ichiro Suzuki for his graduation project at the Royal College of Art in London. He translated old fabrics, made by one of the employees from Henry Poole in 1895, into a collection suits. The resemblance between the three-dimensional and two-dimensional was reconsidered into a floating shape. Ichiro called his study on form “Bio-Geometric Tailoring” and since then, he has explored other tailoring fetishes in “Golden Shears”, “Tweedissimo” and “Tweedissimo Volume II”.

"The Miniartextil exhibition, originated from Como in Italy and organized by Italian collectors, explores annually the infinite creativity of selected artists throughout the world. With mini-textiles of a size of 20 cm3, maxi-textile installations and lace creations, over fifty artists compete with their imagination, know-how, innovative spirit and freedom to offer the most exciting art overview of a simple thread.

The theme ‘contemporary agora’ was chosen for this year’s collection, showing a fresh view on the ancient Greek city. 

Natural and industrial materials have created an intersection of art, design and fashion, all exhibiting the contemporary aesthetic.”  via Trend Tablet

After graduating from studies in his native Canada, Antonio Azzuolo won first place in the menswear category at the prestigious ”Festival des Jeunes Stylistes de Hyères.” For the next ten years, he cultivated his proficiency for design by working at Hermès, Kenzo and Galeries Lafayette in Paris. There, he refined his design aesthetic and his interest in artisanal and sartorial craftsmanship.

In 2000, Azzuolo relocated to New York where he freelanced before launching his custom hand-tailored collection, a.a. antonio azzuolo, in 2008. Azzuolo is inspired by New York street style, which he translates through a refined lens. He incorporates the craft and luxury he learned in Europe with an unexpected whimsy and certain naïveté. With every collection he explores youth archetypes while expanding the fundamentals of a man’s wardrobe. The New York Times has credited Azzuolo as an influential player in the recent American revival of the preppy look. This week, he will unveil a capsule collection during Paris Fashion Week at the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund’s Americans in Paris show.
