There is strength and delicacy, grace and power in the gestures of the human hands, and that is what Gabriele Colangelo is after for the Giada spring collection. Hands as a loquacious part of the body, knotted and intertwined like Auguste Rodin used to depict in his ethereally physical watercolors; hands that make and draw lines, sinuously, painting long dense brushstrokes the way Ronan Bouroullec does.
True to the Giada ethos – one that turns complexity into serene simplicity – Colangelo merges a feminine idea of lightness with a sense of matter and presence, working on shapes that twist, coil and turn around the body, effortlessly. Sharpness dissolves into poetry in motion.
Movement equals grace, as grace reveals its strength. Captured here by Paolo Roversi and art directed by Giovanni Bianco.
