In My Hometown, There Is A Saying About Buddha, He Is Neither Male Nor Female, He Is What People Think He Is, Combined With The Theme Of This Landscape, It Makes Me Think That Clothing Should Not Be Divided
In big cities, people come and go almost without leaving any trace. Some find themselves, some lose themselves in lonely alleys, between infinite, suffocating concrete walls that once represented their daily-hood.
“BOUNDLESS” deals with the reality of urban life, a profound, innate desire to escape from it and reach freedom by rising to infinity, getting closer to the sky.
The main character is seen initially wandering around the gray, empty landscape before deciding to embark on a physical ascension and reach the top of a building to have an unconventional view of the environment that surrounds her.
She subsequently enters a building and frantically tries to reach the top (climbing stairs) where she poses fiercely and proudly admires the view, finally at peace and free from the daily chaos that once had her trapped and lost.
Hi, it’s stylist Martina Brovelli.
I’m from Angera (VA) on Lake Maggiore,
in the northern part of Italy.
“Where does my passion for fashion come from” is certainly a rather complex question to answer. Whether it was doodling on blank margins during school breaks or on restaurant’s napkins, every surface served as an excellent canvas for little-me. The opportunity to study/work within the creative industry is something I’m really grateful for, as it gives me the possibility to merge passion with duty.
I get most inspired by designer brands that display similar aesthetics to mine: Cecilie Bahnsen, Simone Rocha , Minju Kim and Bora Aksu. I enjoy creatives that are able to seamlessly incorporate human emotions with nature, creating bucolic, at times liminal, spaces and compositions such as photographers Cho Gi-Seok, Zhong Lin and Quentin Shih. I also recently started collecting and browsing fashion magazines documenting sub-cultures from Japan during the 90’s/’00s, like FRUiTS by Shoichi Aoki, CUTiE and EGG magazine. Everything that feels nostalgic is right up my alley.
