THE POETIC REACTIVATION OF GUCCI
MARCO BIZZARRI'S SPECIAL VISIT TO POLIMODA

On February 13th, +GUCCI President and CEO Mr Marco Bizzarri, alongside his esteemed colleagues came to give a guest lecture at Polimoda.

There was an energy at the institute unlike any other Monday. Staff, students and faculty were waiting quietly in anticipation in the Aula Magna, and press were entering to find the few remaining seats left.

The focus of the day was how Gucci plans to maintain their incredible success. Indeed in the last two years, Gucci has completely transformed, thanks to Mr Bizzarri and the changes he has made within the company, from the ground up.

“It’s not just a matter of aesthetics. It’s about the cultural values.”

POLIMODA RENDEZ-VOUS #10
GLEN MATLOCK & KEANAN DUFFTY

Sex Pistols founder and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Glen Matlock and Council of Fashion Designers of America member Keanan Duffty will visit Polimoda on January 11th, 2017 to discuss the fascinating intersection of fashion and Music and it’s effect on modern culture, opening the #PolimodaRendezVous cycle for 2017 with a guest lecture entitled The Saturday Boys.

Only a few capitol cities have inspired youth culture as much as London did in the 1960s, 70s and 80s. During those decades the English capitol proved to be the most inspirational, controversial and innovative of places. Often on a ‘shoe string’. Carnaby Street, the Kings Road and Covent Garden created a hotbed for many subcultures, from Mods to Hippies, Punks to New Romantics.

Glen Matlock and Keanan Duffty were, at separate times ‘Saturday Boys’. Matlock at Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood’s 430 Kings Road shop and Duffty at Steph Raynor and Helen Robinson’s PX in London’s Covent Garden. Matlock helped to hang the famous ‘SEX’ sign outside the store and printed some of the original provocative t-shirts. Duffty followed in famed milliner Stephen Jones footsteps by designing hats for PX and selling romantic clothing to various pop stars, actors and 80s supermodels. Both used the part time work to help pay their way through college at Saint Martins in the West End and make connections in the music business.

Music and fashion have always been uneasy bedfellows. Musicians like flashy ‘clobber’ to enhance their stage presence but, as David Bowie famously claimed, they are often uninterested in following fashion.

So why does music influence fashion and vice versa? Matlock and Duffty will discuss their own experiences and theories and answer questions from the audience. The lecture presentation will be accompanied by unique projected images, many previously unseen, detailing the evolution of UK street style.
