Reca + Chiassai
For its 18/19 Autumn/Winter collection, in its own spaces in Milan and Paris, Reca Group will show the CAOSORDINATO/ORDERLYCHAOS exhibition, by the designer Stefano Chiassai. The show presents a selection of the elaborate outfits gathered in the book CAOSORDINATO ANYTHING WORKS, created by the designer with the collaboration his daughter Corinna, who grew up in the corridors of the Chiassai historic archive.
This book, which immediately became a touring exhibition, was begun as a way of gathering and exhibiting over 15,000 men’s garments and accessories selected by Stefano Chiassai, fruit of thirty-five years of passionate research searching in flea markets, vintage stores, and thousands of boutiques around the world. A gathering of apparently non-harmonic garments, which only become a balanced puzzle of shapes and colours thanks to fashion designer Stefano Chiassi’s personal manner of matching his assorted items.
A detailed construction of style identity that fits perfectly with the activities of Reca Group, which since 1960 has been producing labels, hang tags and packaging: elaborate or simple, but always symbols of association and identification with customer brands.
