The photographic oeuvre by Martine Franck (1938–2012)
assembled in this comprehensive monograph, edited by Agnès Sire,
artistic director of the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson
now available at Fondazione Sozzani Bookshop.
The work on this book has been undertaken in 2011 with Martine Franck,
through a chronological journey, including many unpublished images,
the photographer has conceived different chapters spanning her entire life.
Feminism, social deprivation, the elderly, and Buddhism join artists,
writers and landscapes as subjects that are visited and revisited over the years
and through various travels to the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland or Asia,
scrutinised through the lens of her selfless sensitivity,
an eye for form and composition for the woman who wished to “greet the unexpected”.
Her celebration of life, the joy of her knowing eye,
and her commitment to different causes
made Martine Franck a major figure on the international photographic scene.
Oversize volumes and clean sculptural constructions:
Plan C is Carolina Castiglioni’s point of view on fashion
with a newly launched “small and relaxed” women’s wear brand.
Rooted in an elegant, sophisticated aesthetic,
it targets women with unconventional fashion sensibilities
who want to express their personal attitude through a modern wardrobe.

where deep black is combined with octane,

Last Friday Katharine Hamnett launched her exclusive T-shirt collaboration
with established British artist Jeremy Deller
at 10 Corso Como.
Renowned for their political activism and expression,
the two artists came together during Milan Fashion week and in the final lead up
to Brexit to create a well-timed, provocative slogan tee shirt which reads “we are all migrants” in Italian
and using the colours of the Italian flag.
“we are all migrants and sons and daughters of migrants
– that is what humanity does.
I’m Welsh, Viking, Yorkshire, Indian and Jewish. Check your DNA!”
said Katharine Hamnett.
Siamo Tutti Migranti!
