On Wednesday, 13rd September, 2017, we invite You to discover the CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC Woman collection and to visit the new dedicated installation in our boutique at Via Frattina 92.
CALVIN KLEIN 205W39NYC, known as Calvin Klein Collection, is the first luxury ready-to-wear line created by the great stylist Raf Simons, who is the brand’s Chief Creative Officer as well as the winner of this year's "Menswear” and “Womenswear Designer of the Year" at the CFDA Awards 2017 in New York.
A Window Installation at the boutique in Via Frattina 92, where will be exposed the Autumn-Winter 2017/18 line, will be created exclusively for Gente Roma.
For the Fall 2017 collection Raf Simons pays tribute to American fashion traditions with a cinematic approach, celebrating both classic and casual style. Entitled “Parade”, the collection is characterized by the presence of contrasting materials and styles often in the same silhouette. Bright nuances match with neutral shades, pvc fabrics blend in denim and leather while the styles overlap, cross and merge to create a wide and detailed collection.
With its mix of marching band uniforms, plastic coated protection, via power broker tailoring to western wear, it is a unique kind of parade that is evoked.
The clothing of this work, signed by Raf Simons, comes from different cultures and coexists in new forms. The collection celebrates the diversity that characterizes America itself, a cosmopolitan and rich culture of the most varied.
In light of the success of the Rome edition in 2016, SerpentiForm exhibition lands to Singapore to celebrate what is considered the emblem of seduction, rebirth and transformation.

Just one click and all the unusual details and interesting stories of places that inspired the collections of creative director Alessandro Michele will be revealed on smartphones to enchant fans and travelers.
The historic Florentine maison launches Gucci Places an innovative Travel App that will create a network of special sites culturally and aesthetically linked to Gucci.
Gucci Places will let users explore various locations around the world that have inspired the brand’s collections throughout the years. Beyond providing a history lesson, the platform will be highly usable for travelers on the ground. A geo-locational feature will let users “check in” and receive a badge in the process. When users will be near a Gucci Place, a notification will be displayed on their device that will invite to visit the site. Once inside, the app will allow visitors to sign up and get their badges so they can get a detailed description of the location through text, images, and videos.
The first Gucci Place to be unveiled will be the historic English estate Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, England, where Gucci supports a great exhibition titled “House Style: Five Centuries of Fashion at Chatsworth”. Chatsworth was also the set of Gucci Cruise 2017 advertising campaign, featuring the participation of British great actress Vanessa Redgrave. To celebrate the project, a selection of Gucci Courrier accessories will feature two special patches—one representative of Chatsworth’s Ducal Coronet and Snake Logo and the other a bee, the symbol of Gucci Places.
The launch of this creative App is scheduled for September. In the coming months the project will be expanded with the addition of other Gucci Places and dedicated articles to these exceptional locations.
Finally in Rome, the works of Lady of Contemporary Architecture Zaha Hadid are at the center of a large exhibition set up until 14 January in the spaces of MAXXI, one of the most illustrious projects she has signed in Italy.
Visionary Architect and among the most influential of our time, Zaha Hadid has redefined modern architecture and captured the attention of the whole world.
One year since her untimely death, MAXXI is devoting to her the exhibition “Zaha Hadid in Italy”. Focusing on Hadid’s projects in Italy, the exhibition highlights her intense and productive relationship with our country, starting from the buildings such as the Salerno Maritime Terminal, Messner Mountain Museum at Plan de Corones, City Life in Milan and of course Maxxi, to the design of Made in Italy furnishings and products.
Pictorial sketches, three-dimensional and virtual models, objects, videos and photographs show all the projects and works accomplished during her career, drawing a 360-degree representation of the design idea of one of the most visionary minds ever.
A large section is devoted to Zaha's relationship with the design made in Italy, with which it has attracted interesting and repeated creative and productive partnerships. Even when drawing objects and furnishings, Zaha always remains an architect first and foremost: her objects occupy space as real architectures. From the sofas for B&B Italia and Cassina to the chairs, the benches, the tables for Sawaya & Moroni; Slamp lamps, vases and centerpiece for Alessi, and modular bookcases for Magis, with works in the world of high jewelry with the B.zero1 ring and in the fashion system with the exclusive handbag designed for a Fendi charity event.
The exhibition also includes a 20-meter-long wall with video projections telling his projects around the world and a suspended tape collecting Helene Binet's photos, which portrayed almost all of Hadid's architectures.
