    Default thank you Zam and Mojo1990 + our next collection in Paris...

    Thank you very much Mojo1990 and Zam!

    Credit for the dress goes to Toby Green who was the developing designer of the project and model Olivia who is with Studio Paris Model Management who is wearing the dress so well. Toby comes from Victoria BC in Canada and is training on our design team learning all aspects of design development and tailoring. This was one of his first official collection projects, with him developing patterns, muslin testing, cutting and constructing the piece all by himself. It must also be noted that before leaving everything in Canada and coming to Italy to try out for a slot on the Sartoria team about a year ago, he had never sewn or created clothes before (although he had been making jewelry and studied visual arts at the University of Victoria). An example of Toby's persistence and determination and the amazing developmental teaching and organizational progress that is going on in our workrooms as we build and develop a new generation of real practitioners in the art and science of tailoring for the future. Along with Nicholas Giannelli, Lois Dionisio, David Wild, Brandon Leung and our growing team of real working designers, great strides are being made in both the creative and productive capacity of our team.

    Along with them, Toby will be in Paris this weekend to introduce our latest body of new works. The new collection, driven by those who think differently, and inspired to propose and define a new "intellectual style" for radical thinkers everywhere, will be dedicated to my dad who passed away earlier this year as well as other scientists, intellectuals, teachers and academics like him past, present and future who always expressed a different way of seeing and looking at things in our world.

    Due to the nature of the presentation and in interests of discretion, we are only having about 50 private invitees. If you are in Paris Zam, you are as always most cordially invited.

    For other SZ'ers in Paris who would like to attend please contact Lionel for a last minute pass: fashiontherapy@free.fr

    Cheers and thanks again,

    Geoffrey

    Default GBS North America in-store tour 2019

    .


    Thanks so much to Ahimsa, Faust, and the incredible Matthew Reeves for the great photo essay of “radical numbers” for SZ-magazine. Also to all of the great fellows who modeled the collection and worked together to make the presentation possible… many heartfelt thanks.


    I inform SZ readers that I will be in North America in early August for the following intimate personal in-store events...


    Atelier in New York on Saturday 3 August


    Is there life after streetwear? Few stores in North America have been more synonymous with the artisanal design movement than Atelier in New York. From its founding by partners Karlo Steel and Costantin von Haeften through 2 different locations to its closing, acquisition and then rebirth and rebuilding by its current owner Lu Han into two locations in Manhattan and now Flushing respectively, the store has housed a long list of veteran and younger designers known for their focus on craft and the art and metier of making things. Recently however, the corporate industrial push of streetwear has had a huge impact on many of these designers, the market in general, and even some of the store’s selection of brands. However, anyone who was inside the industry and attending the most recent men’s fashion week circuit presentations in both Milan and Paris couldn’t help but see, hear and feel a dramatic shift taking place away from tee’s, hoodies and sneakers and back to tailored pieces across virtually all brands. So what’s up with that? Well for one, that nasty sustainability and plastic problem isn’t going away as recently evidenced by Stella McCartney’s 2nd corporate sellout of her brand and company now to LVMH (after Kering before them) and this slamming article on the industry that just came out in the The Guardian https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/...om-our-clothes . And for two, many of the generation-Z and millennial customers particularly in China are moving on, growing up, and starting to learn more and more about what longer-term wardrobe value means. And like the entire Chinese fashion market history so far, they are moving faster than anyone expected.

    I will be in New York at the store on West 8th Street on Saturday August 3rd for an intimate designer-in-person event with SZ to discuss these questions and introduce our newest Autumn/winter 2019 pieces made for the store from “the onion” and “I am not sustainable” Paris collections. If you are in the New York-area, and an existing GBS customer or hoping to become one, this would be a great time to “ask the designer” any questions you may have on old and new pieces, and I will be personally signing GBS pieces purchased during the event with the customer’s name or message in the piece. Looking forward to seeing many of you on the 3rd. Please contact the store for more event information and invites: inquire@ateliernewyork.com

    signing GBS piece purchases during the event with the customer’s name or message.

    (more AW19 images of the "onion" by Dario Ruggiero coming up soon)





    Leisure Center in Vancouver on Tuesday August 6th


    Ah, and about that 22k euro suit that so many have been commenting about…. From NYC, I will be heading northwest to Vancouver to be at Leisure Center for a discreet and private event to personally introduce in detail, discuss and sign the incredible new Super 210’s supersuit which has just arrived there in-store and was written about last month on this thread. A great chance to see people in the northwest interested in our work and approach--and also discuss old and new GBS pieces now in the store, and personally sign any purchases during the event with the customer’s name or message in the pieces. Looking forward to seeing many of you on the 6th. If you are in the Vancouver BC area at that time, please contact the store for more event information and invites: info@leisure-center.com

    and numbering it on 6 August as well as other GBS piece purchases during the event with the customer’s name

    Looking forward to meeting you at either Atelier or Leisure Center…


    Best wishes,


    Geoffrey

    Can you expand more on this growing up and realization of long-term wardrobe value change in China? What you have experience/read? Or, if you can, point me to direction to where I can read more on this?

    Thank you.

    Dear Zam, Thanks so much for coming. It was great to see you and wishing you the best in your new space. Thanks also to Faust, and everyone at StyleZeitgeist and Atelier who helped to make such a nice event, and of course, all of the amazing people who turned out to see us yesterday. It was great to speak with each of you and work with you on so many very heartfelt pieces and purchases. Great memories and many thanks to each of you. Now we’re off to the next stop… it’s a busy and intense summer with a fantastic new story just out in Italy on our work in the new print version summer 2019 edition of Basicly magazine written in Milan by Giulia Massarenti with images from our most recent Paris shows in March and June by Giulia Mantovani and Guido Barbagelata. We provide a copy of the article for SZ viewers here below (contact the magazine directly for the print version or the full magazine in digital format https://basiclymag.com/), again with many thanks to everyone...

    Thanks Errantman... We continue to be honored and privileged to have many of the world’s best current working photographers capture our work through their eyes and lenses. Over the past few years, these artists have included Guido Barbagelata, Toru Kitahara, Matthew Reeves, Antonio Maccaro, Catherine Faux, Elizabeth Creseveur, Matteo Carcelli, Dario Ruggiero and others.


    On that note, the photographer Dario Ruggiero who lives and works in Paris has recently graciously provided us with a beautiful series of images he shot during our Autumn/Winter presentation of the ”The onion” collection, which is now beginning to arrive at GBS authorized dealers around the world. With his permission, we are very pleased to present them here exclusively on our designer thread at StyleZeitgeist.com with many thanks,

    Excellent pictures. They really do justice to the fabric composition and how well they all contrast so beautifully together. It's like poetry in motion. You can appreciate the layering too.

    I am curios to ask if whether the above pictures are representative of the entire collection available for this Fall Winter? Or will further looks be made available as the winter kicks in? I seem to recall a few outwear pieces (over shirts) featured on Instagram last year which I'm anticipating.

    Dear Mojo1990,


    Thank you as always for your kind comments. Much credit of course goes to Dario Ruggiero who shot the pictures, each of the models and the exceptional people and suppliers who work with us to create the pieces. To answer your question, there is far more to both the "the onion" and "i am not sustainable" aw2019 collections than the selected images for the above story, and deliveries are steadilly arriving at our authorized dealers around the world as we build them and prepare them like an art-gallery or museum exhibition-- one dealer order at a time. We recommend contacting them and keeping an eye on our Instagram and Facebook pages as well as right here on SZ. I am trying to post somewhat regularly, but honestly, am buried with current record production obligations, and all the challenges and problems of running a growing hard-core design company and organization now at almost 40 people in Cavarzere in an extremely volatile and unstable overall industry and market. On top of all that, and even more important as well, is the development and execution of our next Paris women's collection campaign and presentation, which is without a doubt, our most ambitious and challenging to date on a myriad of levels.

    In only a few days, on September 28th, GBS will launch its 109th Paris collection since we came over to Paris with a suitcase of samples from Boston in 1993. And as always, we will not be resting on any laurels-- but instead, will be betting the entire company that we have built up now for over 40 years, on the single body of new design works and a world Premier Live Opera Performance directed by Brad C. Sisk., who has already brought us three landmark Paris show presentations that have merged live-theater performance with a Paris defile presentation and revolutionized the art of the Paris fashion show. This new art form has begun to bring a new kind of culture to a new global audience that has never seen or known about this kind of art before with Sisk's GBS theatre/defile productions of Samuel Beckett’s “Come and Go” in 2017, William Shakespeare’s King Lear (“Get Ready” AW18 men’s show in January 2018), and Fyodor Dostoevsky’s “Brothers Karamazov” in Russian (“The Onion” AW19 men’s show in January this year). For those who were present at any one of these presentations, you may still remember the incredible experience we all shared in the room during those electrifying performances merged with record-making GBS design collections. If you were not there, and have not already seen them, I warmly welcome you to view the videos of those presentations on this SZ thread as listed at the end of this post.


    BRAD SISK is a long-time member of our team and a brilliant artist whom I have also posted about in earlier pages on this thread. And he is now bringing a never before performed 16th century opera piece to our runway that, without revealing too much, contains an explosive and powerful story and message and continues our mission to elevate the art of fashion, its presentation, and its value for human excellence and achievement at the Paris designer collections level. We invite you to hear Brad speak about the upcoming work himself in this brief video trailer clip interview by Giulia Massarenti and Davide Gabriele.

    Best wishes,

    Geoffrey

    Due to the complexity of the operation, we have completed the program for our Paris presentation earlier than we normally do, and as a special advance for SZ readers, I am posting it here. L'Alcibiade is by far and away our most ambitious and challenging Paris collection and show to date and will mark our 109th Paris collection presentation. We will be taking a lot of chances with this one in many different ways, and I thought it would be suitable to list out some of the reasoning from our perspective behind what people we will see tonight before any photos, video and whatever media coverage happens to get out. Many may think that there is too much to read, to much to understand, or we are becoming too cerebral. Fashion in the social media age after all, is not looked upon by most as a very intellectual endeavor. Well to me it is. And for 40 years, I have spent my lifetime trying to raise the art, and am honored and privileged to share this view today with so many amazing colleagues and so many of you. GBS has always been for people who think, and for people who think differently. Tonight, we are going to try to challenge all of our minds even further than ever before with a presentation like no other that has ever been attempted on a Paris runway. And if it works it will be a show made possible by an enormous group of amazingly serious and dedicated human beings all working together in the pursuit of total excellence and creative innovation. I felt it best to give credit now before the day begins. Thanks to all of you, Geoffrey

    Total Focus. Me backstage a few minutes before the live opera/defile "L'Alcibiade" Saturday night in Paris directed by Brad C. Sisk. It was our firm's most ambitious and most expensive Paris presentation to date incorporating a cabine of almost 40 top models, 2 top classical musicians on harpsichord and cello, 3 virtuoso opera singers brought up from Italy, and a massive Athenian and Venetian staging concept developed by Brad Sisk, architects Davide Gabriele and Paul Bradley and over 60 amazing professional collaborators all working together to put on a type of show that has never been done before on a Paris runway. I cannot convey the tension and the excitement and the pressure going through my mind at that moment caught in the photograph by Yusuke Shiiki. More coverage coming soon.
