Style findings: dispatches from the Wallpaper* fashion team

Italian fashion house Fratelli Rosseti has collaborated with Nepalese bespoke carpet brand cc-tapis to present ‘Stripes under your feet’, as part of Salone del Mobile 2018. Alongside bespoke rugs, to be displayed in the Fratelli Rosseti Montenapoleone store, two special edition loafers share the same colour palette; white is blended with mauve, pink and black to create striped effects. If you’re lucky enough to be at this year’s Salone, put on your dancing shoes — or striped loafers, of course — to the DJ and wine tasting event celebrating the collection this evening.

We delighted in Paul Surridge’s debut collection for Roberto Cavalli, so much so that we featured the creative director in our House Swap feature of our March Style Special issue. Now, as part of Salone del Mobile 2018, Surridge is set to debut his first interiors capsule for the Italian house. We were lucky to get a sneak preview of his designs, and we’ve got eyes for these hand-manufactured swirling and knobbly crystal vases, produced by Colle di Val d’Elsa-based crystal specialists Arnolfo di Cambio. With the rest of Cavalli’s homeware collection being showcased tomorrow, we can’t wait to see what else we’ll add to our wishlist.

Yesterday evening, a crowd gathered in London’s Whitechapel Gallery to hear the announcement of the winner of 2018’s Max Mara Art Prize for Women. Running since 2015, the prize offers a unique chance for UK-based female artists to have the gift of time to develop their practice. The prize comprises of a six month Italian residency which fuels an ambitious new project to be presented in major solo exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery and the Collezione Maramotti in Italy.

British-Jamaican artist Helen Cammock has walked away with this year’s prize. Cammock, who works across multiple medias, focuses her practice on storytelling and thus carefully pieces together neglected blanks in written history. Her skill for oral collage enables her to beautifully interrogate these subject matters, making way for impressive works of art both visually and acoustically. Her Italian tour proposes to question the expression of lament in Italian culture and society, paying particular attention to its representation in operatic music. We look forward to seeing Cammock’s development in 2019, when she is set to exhibit her work made during this period. Video still from 'There’s a Hole in The Sky Part I 2016', by Helen Cammock. Courtesy of Helen Cammock
