How To Steal a Morandi: the concept

How to Steal a Morandi | D-due

The paintings of the Italian artist Giorgio Morandi inspire the Fall-Winter 2017/18 collection. With irony, D-due brings still life back to life.

The desire to capture beauty lights up D-due’s imaginary this new season. Art thieves and their romantic and illegal attitude have become the protagonists of the new proposal, in which a painting of Giorgio Morandi unleashes the creative action.

With an ironic twist, D-due brings inert objects back to life, proposing the paradox that we are the objects, and it is the still life that observes us.

Graphics of jars and bottles are represented in garment prints or handkerchiefs with continuous exposure of the overlapping of fine strokes. This is an approach to the graphic work of Morandi, as well as to his universe of evanescent objects.

The cinema of policemen and thieves, specifically the film of Stolen by Rebecca Dreyfus, is the starting point to begin tracing the adventure of the new designs.

D-due’s traditional irony creates the thieves as the characters of discord. They represent the feeling of desire for beautiful objects, and art is the principal element of attraction.

The superposition of micro lines is repeated infinitely to create a set of vibrant textures that define the optical illusions of this season. The duality of darkness and light, whose source is the thief’s lantern, dictate the navy blues and shiny sparkles of the textiles of How to Steal a Morandi.
