Old & Fashion
I started the project with a fascinating visit at the impressive Archive of Shenkar. There, I was exposed to few items that had a unique and exclusive style. I chose to start by investigating a specific suit that draw my attention. It was designed by the American designer Ralf Rucci, to the CHADO brand. I did a research on Rucci’s inspirations, the period in which he created, his fields of interest and the period’s influence on his creation. I discovered that the suit is part of the Rucci’s collation from 2005, and the influence of the Japanese esthetics is recognized in this piece.
