Diane Pernet and Anna Piaggi

Conocer personas como Diane, que sin saberlo me enseñan algo, es un regalo que me encanta compartir con ustedes. Mi encuentro con ella me ha hecho caer en cuanta que sin importar nuestros logros o el reconocimiento que tengamos, la sencillez y cercanía no solo nos hace más admirables, si no que nos hace aun más grandes de lo que ya somos para alguien.

Aquí les dejo la visión de una gran promotora de la moda con sentido, aquí les comparto un poco de Diane Pernet.

Que es el Estilo ? Es una forma de vivir, es algo orgánico que no se puede comprar, mientras que moda es algo que se compra y por lo general tiene fecha de expiración.

Como ves la relación de moda y arte? Crees que la moda puede ser arte? Creo que la una se alimenta de la otra, pero no creo que la moda sea arte. El arte es algo que se puede colgar en la pared y admirar, la moda es algo que tiene una función en la vida diaria.

Como curadora de ASVOFF, como ves el roll de los Films en la comunicación de moda? Creo que es una nueva forma de comunicarla. No es que los films de moda no existieran, pero solo en los últimos años lo hemos visto como un medio casi obligatorio.

ASVOFF

Crees que la moda seguirá mirando al pasado o evolucionara hacia nuevas estéticas? Si esta temporada es un barómetro del futuro, diría que desafortunadamente seguirá mirando al pasado. Los 50’s parecen ser la tendencia de la próxima temporada, pero guardo la esperanza que los diseñadores dejen de rebobinar el pasado. Claro que hay algunos diseñadores que investigan nuevos tejidos y volúmenes pero son muy pocos.

Siendo de las primeras personas en crear un Blog, como te sientes acerca de los nuevos Bloggers en el medio? Crees que los bloggers desaparecerán? Creo que es una situación que parece funcionar bastante bien para bloggers y diseñadores, de otra forma no seguiría creciendo. Desaparecerán los que ya no son relevantes, pero creo que las redes sociales ya son parte de nuestra cultura.

Estuviste visitando Chile para ver la moda allí propuesta, cual es tu visión de la moda Latinoamericana, y crees que podremos lograr una posición en el panorama internacional? Creo que todos los mercados emergentes quieren reconocimiento internacional sin entender que antes necesitan crear unas bases, Creo que hay mucho tiempo y trabajo que invertir.

Para mi eres un ejemplo de unicidad, algún consejo de cómo encontrar nuestro propio estilo? Creo que es importante dejar de mirarse tanto el exterior y tratar de encontrar quien eres y encontrar una manera de comunicar tu mensaje, ahí abras descubierto tu unicidad.

Hay algunos pocos diseñadores que manejan su propia visión, como Rick Owens, Comme des Garcons, Haider Ackerman, Bernard Willhem. Y para los diseñadores nuevos tengo gran fe en Aitor Throup y espero que lleve la moda masculina a una nueva dimensión.

Through the years I’ve discovered that in this industry, and in life, sometimes those people you admire the most can surprise you when you discover them being real and humble. In the past year, I have met people in fashion that are so genuine and down to earth as you couldn’t imagine, and this is the case of Diane Pernet.

Peronal Picture of Diane

Diane is an Icon, her atypical style, her sharp and diverse look at fashion, are a statement on her blog www.ashadedviewonfashion.com, which I strongly recommend if you are looking for a thoughtful fashion content. Her unlike view on the industry, her work on impelling new talent and her personality stated on images and words, have influenced my own view on fashion and have inspired me to outstand the work of those who really make a difference. I had the pleasure to meet Diane personally a random Sunday of June, at La Triennale di Milano, where ASVOFF (A Shaded View on Fashion Films which is curated and created by Diane herself) was being presented, and what a great surprise when I found out she was attending this edition. As you saw on my article about The Sartorialist, meeting my idols is one of my hobbies, and as I did with Scott Schuman, I went to Diane and told her how much I admired her, and how, since 2005 her blog was an oasis of inspiration while I lived in Barcelona. My encounter with her was short, but a bigger surprise came to me when I exchanged some emails with Diane herself. It was amazing to find her being so approachable, and regardless her tough agenda she managed to share her knowledge and answer some questions for Fashionlessons. Meeting people like Diane, that without knowing, teach me something about life, is a gift that I love to share with you. My encounter with her made me understand that no matter what you have accomplished, or how amazing you are at what you do, being humble and open to others, makes us even more admirable, and more than that, it makes us immense to who already thinks we are astounding.

Here I leave you with the vision of a great fashion visionarie, please enjoy a little of Diane Pernet.

Diane by Nick Walker

What is style for you? It is a way of life, it is something organic and cannot be bought where as fashion is something that you buy and usually has a sell out date.

How do you feel about fashion related to art? Do you think fashion can be Art? I think one feed off of the other but I do not think fashion is art. Art is something that you hang on the wall or put on the floor and admire, fashion is something that has to function in daily life. Some designers are more conceptual therefore their work is more aligned with art than others who are just making product.

As you curate the ASVOFF, how do you feel is the role of films in the communication of fashion? I believe it is a new way to communicate fashion. Not that fashion films never existed, they exist but it has only been the past few years where we see fashion films as almost an obligatory medium to express the atmosphere of a brand. There are so many more elements that one can work with including script, sound, movement, art direction, film direction, acting, etc.

Do you think fashion will stay looking to the past or will it evolve in to new ways of aesthetics? If this season is any barometer to the future I’d have to say it is still constantly looking backwards, unfortunately. The fifties seem to be a trend for next season but one hopes, always, that designers start thinking forward and not rewinding the past. There are of course designers that experiment with new textiles , new volumes and new ways to pass on their message but they are very few.

Being one of the first on doing a Blog, how do you feel about the new bloggers in the media? I imagine it is a situation that seems to work for both the bloggers and the designers or else it would not continue and grow. Seems now to be extremely successful for many like Sartorialist, ManReppeler, StyleBubble, Tavi, Bryan Boy, Tommy Ton…

Do you think bloggers will disappear or will continue being important for media?I think some will stay while others will disappear when they seem to no longer be relevant. I think social media has become part of our culture and that includes blogs, tweets, and all the rest of it.

Diane, Cathy Horyn and Scott Schuman.

You recently visited Chile, how do feel about latin fashion, do you think we can get somewhere in the international panorama? I think all emerging markets want international success instantly without understanding that a foundation needs to be built first. I think there is some time and work that needs to happen first.

You are an example of uniqueness, do you have any advice on how to achieve your own uniqueness?I think that it is important not to look too much outside yourself and try to find who you are and a way to transmit that message and then you will have discovered your own uniqueness.

Who do you consider a real influence in today’s Fashion world?There are a few designers that follow their own visions like Rick Owens, Comme des Garcons, Haider Ackermann, Bernhard Willhelm. And for new designers I have great faith in Aitor Throup and lookforward to him taking mens fashion into the new dimension.

THANK YOU DIANE

Una de las cosas que he descubierto de esta industria y sobretodo de la vida, es que a veces, aquellas personas que mas admiras son las que mas te sorprenden, sobretodo al descubrir que son tan seguras de si mismas que no necesitan aparentar, ni actuar con superioridad. En el ultimo año me he encontrado con que en la moda existen personas tan reales y cercanas como nunca lo imaginamos, y este es el caso de Diane Pernet. Diane es un icono, su estilo atípico y su mirada aguda y heterogénea hacia la moda se transmiten en su blog www.ashadedviewonfashion.com el cual realmente les recomiendo si están ávidos de un contenido diferente . Su mirada atípica de la industria, su labor por impulsar nuevos talentos y su personalidad transmitida en imágenes y palabras, han influido mi propia visión de la moda, y me han inspirado a querer resaltar el trabajo de aquellos que marcan una diferencia. Tuve el placer de conocer a Diane hace poco, exactamente un domingo del mes de junio en la Triennale de Milano, donde se presentaba ASVOFF (A Shaded View in Fashion Films). Que grata sorpresa me llevé al descubrir que ella misma atendía esta edición, y como ya vieron en mi historia con The Sartorialist, acercarme a mis ídolos es uno de mis hobbies. De la misma manera que lo hice con Scott Schuman, me acerqué a Diane para contarle cuanto admiraba su trabajo, y como desde el 2005 seguía su blog, el cual encontraba fascinante en un mundo donde un contenido diferenciador es cada ves mas escaso. Mi encuentro con Diane fue corto, pero continuó vía email donde realmente me sorprendí al ver que ella respondía a mis correos igual de cálida y cercana como lo fue en persona, y mejor aún, me encontré con alguien que a pesar de sus ocupaciones, accedió a compartir su conocimiento y a responder unas preguntas para Fashionlessons.
