SNEAK PEEK: AREA DI BARBARA BOLOGNA FALL WINTER 2013 - ATELOPHOBIA

The lovely Barbara Bologna gave me an exclusive sneak preview of her latest collection entitled "ATELOPHOBIA - Narcissist of Cannibalism". The powerful and haunting images captured by the multi-talented Bologna and Gautier Pelligrin absolutely left me breathless! So far, I'm seeing some pretty sweet noir and bordeaux color combo, some dark olive greens, some exotic fur and goat hair, some enticing sheer and some elaborate knitwork and of course some obligatory leatherware. I'm just dying to see the entire set! Hopefully, there are more menswear looks!

"I saw a woman eating another being, in the most total perfection. ATELOPHOBIA's aversion to imperfection. I find it fascinating how a phobia can become a narcissism toward something, and bring perfection to cannibalism, act completely rude and imperfect, has forced me to see more deeply, trying to figure out where it might be this connection. I saw exactly where this connection is alive, it lies in uniting seemingly opposite elements thus creating a "personal" perfection. Creating a medicine for phobia. "
