Moving from Milan for a season, Gucci showed it’s latest Spring Summer 2019 collection in Paris. Leo de Berardinis and Perla Peragallo are the source of inspiration for Alessandro Michele and his Gucci team while creating the outfits for the next summer:
Leo de Berardinis and Perla Peragallo have been the most passionate and transgressive, the most decadent and irregular dioscuri of the Italian experimental theatre. Their “theatre of contradiction” has been a place of permanent dissent. A space where they suggested radical alternatives to society and to artlang of their times. Their idea of theatre actually dares the established immobility, conformism and power. An anarchist and libertarian eye, wide open to the stream of life.
For Leo and Perla theatre can’t just be a show, because a show only produces an aestheticization of the already known, a deadly representation to experience in a passive way. Theatre must rather be seen as “primordial art of collective knowledge, of horror and joy of being, a laboratory to experiment the complexity of life in simplified situations of space and time” (L. de Berardinis). Theatre can in fact create nostalgia for an other life, it can vibrate of ethical and political tensions, it can poetically deploy a transformative potential. – from Gucci
