Art and its artifacts always infuse Sylvio Giardina’s work. In his new creative project, a small, dark, slightly convex object with a black tinted surface fascinated Sylvio: it was the “Claude mirror”, which abstracts landscape sceneries, while unifying shapes and lines and blurring details. The new creative process starts from this vision, where fabrics and shapes blend and colors sway. Black plays a predominant role in the collection, yet the polished and mirroring fabrics create optical and vibrant effects, giving way to pure geometric shapes, defined by brown, navy blue and hazel hues. Some outfits are embellished with Plexiglas necklaces, playing out a double role, complementing the dress and working as an accessory. Fiercely believing in having fun by letting ideas run free, Sylvio introduces to the public a mini collection of accessories, made of earrings in mirroring black Plexiglas and tortoiseshell necklaces.
