Odi et Amo – Haute Couture Legend
Good and Evil. A parallelism between the medieval ancient past legends and our current time. Barbara Trombatore tells us a new legend entirely dedicated to Haute Couture rugs collection and part of Heart Couture Capsule Collection, introduced at Maison & Objet Paris January 2020 edition. Good and Evil eternal struggle, represented by Devotion and Regina di Cuori Diamond red carpets.
Devotion & Regina di Cuori Diamond red – How design meets fashion
Devotion and Regina di Cuori Diamond Haute Couture carpets take the stage. Real fabric masterpieces, which look like a Land Art installation, are enhancing the famous Bobbio’s Ponte Gobbo, one of the prominent Alta Val Trebbia symbol. Carpets as sculptures, entirely handmade by skilled artisan weavers and enriched with bas-relief scratches and precious Swarovski crystals. Pure heart celebration.
Bobbio leads the scene – Odi et Amo Legend
As in all legends, the location runs a relevant role. Bobbio Ponte Gobbo, celebrated as “Il Borgo più Bello d’Italia 2019”, is an absolute main charachter, known all over the world for its unusual and characteristic shape, dating back to the Roman era. The television crew of Telelibertà, thanks to the great talent of the director Giuseppe Piva, has been able to give voice to a timeless work. An Haute Couture legend. A tribute to our land, Piacenza, to Fashion, Design and Craftsmanship that, as always, accompany every creation signed by Sitap Carpet Couture Italia.
Odi et Amo Legend – A textile land art masterpiece
The story goes through the famous stone bridge walk. Step by Step, two wonderful female figures are walking until the midpoint, in a glances and light touches dance, which will bring the legend to its end. Good has an angelic face and a bright beauty dressed in white. At its feet, beautiful Devotion rugs velvety touch made of hand-tufted bamboo silk. Evil has the seductive features of a self-confident woman, sensual and proud to be “Queen of her own Heart”. Red is the color that features her sparkling dress and her feline step, along Regina di Cuori Diamond red rugs on the ground. The ending is a twist…
