Paris, France.

Preamble

Coperni has always given priority to the sun, to daylight, to clear and distinct ideas. But with the sun cometh the night. She shows the world differently – guiding us as always but also urging in a new time, a time to welcome in the unpredictable. Whether it’s mid#night or midday, the night is our window to see what is possible.

Experience

Filming of the catwalk on Thursday 04 March in Paris at 19:30 (UTC+1) 70x participants depart from their homes in 35x electric cars. Each vehicle will navigate the streets of Paris before arriving in the great hall of the Accord Arena in Bercy, the 12th arrondissement of the City of Light. The cars and their passengers will move into the darkness of the empty hall – enough space for over 20,000 in normal times. The choreo#graphy takes place after the vehicles have moved in to formation, becoming an integral part of the catwalk. The car radios turn on and announce the start of filming. Each indi#vidual set of headlights will light up as the first model passes by, allowing participants to view the collection through their car window.

Collection

The Winter 21 collection is an exploration into the complexity and the mystery of night#time as we know it: sometimes pitch-black, sometimes dotted with stars, sometimes il#luminated by the moon. The night-time of celebration, of seduction and of plunging into the unknown is opposed to the nighttime of sleep, of resting our bodies and allowing dreams to take over our mind and our soul.

The night can begin…

Frank and dynamic cuts on classic silhouettes let us glimpse the skin lying beneath. The shoulders are raised, the arms are slender – ready to enter in to the darkness. Sensuality arises from a play on zipped drapintg. Second skin mesh opposes the moving fringes.
Bags in the shape of a padlock suggest something locked away in darkness. Maxima#lised forms lead us towards calmness, reconciliation and time for ourselves. Softness protects the body and light becomes therapy.

Carlo Ingegno

Nato a Napoli, si trasferisce per amore a Buenos Aires dove ci rimane per ben dodici anni. Qui la prima esperienza lavorativa, nell'editoriale Rizzoli, che aveva acquistato nella città tanto amata da Jorge Luis Borges una nota casa editrice. Negli anni ‘80 torna in Italia, a Milano, questa volta per lavoro in Rcs, dove si occupa di immagine e grafica. Inoltre viaggia, fotografa e scrive storie dal mondo con approccio esplorativo sempre attento ai dettagli. Oggi dirige Agenda Viaggi con un gruppo di persone molto speciali. Vive a Monza ma spesso si sposta a Verzimo, un paesino del XI sec. in provincia di Vercelli, in una casa piccola, soleggiata, per metà ristrutturata, un giardino incolto e mobili tutti diversi per epoche e stili, come la vecchia tavola da surf testimone di lunghe cavalcate sulle onde in California o come l'eccentrico menù del caffè Granola a Copenaghen, la foto scattata alla cisterna di vetro colorata da Dumbo, Brooklyn, dell'artista Tom Fruin, e le belle stampe che immortalano la piacevole solitudine sulla spiaggia di Margate nella contea del Kent in Inghilterra.
