NUPTUS by Sylvio Giardina

NUPTUS – as the latest creation of the prolific arist and couture fashion designer – Sylvio Giardina is the respose for the 3rd edition of LIMITED/UNLIMITED exhibition project, curated by AltaRoma and Silvia Venturini Fendi. This redefinition of bridal gown with unconventional results is composed from expanded polytene and jersey with details in Swarovski crystals. The effect is marvellous depicting a piece of clothing like a tender and soft, cloudy-like construction with sartorial hint. This experimental design is a successful attempt of opposition to the conventional and glossy image of slim and bloodless silhouettes. As a result the tradition is juxtaposed with innovative yet sensual harmony discovering renewed aesthetics of the Sylvio Giardina’s stamp which was mentioned in the post about his autumn / winter 2011 / 2012 collection.
