FETISH STYLE

Provocation. It is the mantra of a star who has always lived on the verge of excess, ready to amaze even at 56 years old. Madonna chooses the bondage style for her new image in a photo shoot for Interview magazine, in view of the release of the new album expected for 2015. In the shots, by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, she shows off a breathtaking topless in a boudoir version. And in the interview, by David Blaine, he talks about his crosses: from drugs to loneliness, passing through the relationship with his mother as a child. "Drugs - explains Madonna - are a short circuit, because they deceive you by making you feel closer to God but at the same time they are killing you. They destroy you. I have tried everything at least once, but every time I was" high " then I spent my time drinking tons of water to get those substances out of my body. " The times of the album 'Ray of Light' and the new age period of the star seem distant, we are back to hell. A spiritually enlightened sinner. The two ingredients for the eternal youth of a character who ages with oxymorons.
Black leather, pvc, bondage-effect laces for the joy (and pleasure) of fetish fanatics. Today more than ever trendy. A mood to be measured with caution, but also with a certain dose of courage, for a risque and irreverent look. Without taking yourself too seriously.
Over the years, fetish has become one of the most recurring objects of inspiration in fashion, to be told on the catwalk through codes and experiments in leather, PVC and bondage details.
The fetish, as a phenomenon of costume and aesthetic category, has always returned to the fashion radar, starting with the collections of Thierry Mugler and Alexander McQueen and, above all, the controversial Fall / Winter 1992 collection by Gianni Versace entitled Miss S&M, where the her cast of supermodels paraded in dog collars, leather harnesses, bustiers and BDSM-inspired accessories.
A series of creative stimuli linked to the strangest and most extreme human fantasies that, through fashion, have been made protagonists in recent decades also in famous films and more: from the provocative outfit of Mimì in the film Luna di gall by Roman Polanski, with self-regulating and waterproof latex socks, to the onesie of the vengeful Aeon Flux, played by Charlize Theron in the homonymous film with a futuristic touch. Passing through the iconic video clip of Madonna's song Human Nature, from 1994, which expresses the hidden and often repressed side of human sexuality through words, choreography and looks.
Since its presence was legitimized on the catwalk, fetish, in fact, has never abandoned the fashion collections, becoming in fact one of the cyclical inspirations of the stylists who, through a simple rubber or PVC accessory or a total look, represent the paradox of the mask as a real representation: a possibility of expressing what every day, in the hypocrisy of a "normal" society, cannot be made explicit in all spontaneity.
It already has its ranks of extremist worshipers, the Fall-Winter 2020/21 collection designed by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, and sent to the catwalk just a handful of days ago at Paris Fashion Week. And, in fact, the acclaimed collection has everything it takes to conquer the widest female audience (and, yes, also the male one): rigor and femininity, order and sensuality, respectability and perversion. In perfect harmony with the brand's most deeply rooted DNA.
It is almost incredible to see how latex, which in the 1920s was used above all as a prodigious material for drop-proof raincoats, soon became almost the very emblem of the fetish world, including its even more sinful sadomasochistic branches, and then, with a double pike jump that reverses the course again, re-enters the more or less reassuring ranks of the bourgeoisie and lives a new life, as an itchy but tolerated touch, to be added with skill even to the most "respectable" outfits.

STRINGS

I will vibrate the strings of your life, be in perennial tachcardia, in the end suck what you have to the marrow, don’t back down, don’t be afraid to take risks, don’t be afraid to throw yourself, make love as many times as you can, love and hate, but be light, laugh, cry, wipe him tears and be quick to ride and drop anchor; jump, jump as high as you can try to touch the sky, to step on the clouds, taste them and tell me if they taste like cotton candy, try to fly, spread your wings, tip to the stars and don’t be scared if you fall, you will take off again and so, again and again, you will fly.
It will be true that music makes our hearts vibrate but silence makes the beats skip, imperceptible palpitations and stillness. turn off the world, listen to the ghosts you carry inside. Who doesn’t have some ghost that they live with? We all have the famous skeletons in the closet, finding it depends only on the depth of the latter. hear the sound of your blood pumping into your heart, love moves under pressure.
And in the end I just have to lock myself inside my six strings, put them in front of me and look at the world through these singing bars, hear the echoes in the sound box that becomes my prison, my cell. Scream my pain to the world through the notes, only a few will understand, many will feel them as notes to themselves, the whole story of my life, my emotions and my feelings will not reach them. Also because making a string vibrate is something very personal, and fortunately few can understand my vibrations.
Dear me, I am writing to you because sometimes the courage you have is not enough for you. Do not give up. You know you can only count on your own strength. What are you still amazed at? You have learned to walk alone, to get up on your own … and you have long since stopped believing in others. Despite the mistakes you’ve made, you’ve never pulled back, you’ve never regretted, you’ve never looked for excuses… and now don’t apologize to anyone! You know how to smile like few others, because that smile never has ulterior motives, it always starts from your heart even when that heart explodes in your chest. Listen to me at least this time… don’t let anyone turn it off or even turn you off. LIVE because regrets are worse than death. LIVE AND FORGET because you don’t need anyone to feel peaceful. LIVE, FORGET AND LEARN: most people know the value of things and treat people as objects, as folds, as if they were nothing … you don’t … you know the value of emotions, even those that you pretended not to have . Live by getting excited about the little things, the little gestures, every detail that makes the difference between what is past, and can never come back, and a future that awaits you and that you deserve to live smiling as you may not have done yet.
