To celebrate the birthday of the great designer Enrico Coveri, on the stage of GO we will host Silvio Balloni for the presentation of the book Enrico Coveri: The King of Colours (Gruppo Editoriale). In addition to the author, Francesco Coveri and Matteo Parigi Bini will be present. The journalist Cinzia Malvini will moderate the event.

 

The book:

THE FIRST BOOK ON THE HISTORY OF THE GREAT ITALIAN STYLIST AND 'KING OF COLORS' ENRICO COVERI.

 

An elegant box set that contains a precious volume of 224 pages full of stories and unpublished photos. A coffee table book not to be missed for fashion lovers and fans of the 1980s. Texts by Silvio Balloni and photos from the Enrico Coveri Archive.

Thanks to the opening of the archives by the Maison, the human and professional journey of Enrico Coveri is investigated from the very beginning thanks to a wealth of unpublished documentation, both graphic and photographic. The early period narrates his work as a model for the Italian Fashion Institute, his little known activities within the industrial environment of Florence and Prato, and the main textile and ready-to-wear fashion companies in Tuscany, which saw in Coveri the talent capable of renewing their lines.

1978 is the year of his dazzling debut on the Paris ready-to-wear scene, with a collection so avant-garde that it consecrated Enrico Coveri, then only twenty-six, as the new star in the international fashion firmament.

From this moment, the doors of an extraordinary career open for Coveri, marked by collaboration with top models destined to become icons of female beauty, from Naomi Campbell to Linda Evangelista, from Cindy Crawford to Claudia Schiffer.

The 1980s are witnessed by important archival documents, particularly those related to the designer's original sketches inspired by the Pop-Art of Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat, to his collaboration with Andy Warhol, deepened by important unpublished testimonies. The last chapter is dedicated to Coveri's debut in Haute Couture, inaugurated by a famous fashion show at the Paris Opera Garnier opened by a ballet by Maurice Béjart, of which the splendid dresses paraded for the occasion will be published for the first time.

The book concludes with an illustration of the present of the Maison and the direction conferred to it by Francesco Martini Coveri, who, by merging his uncle's legacy with his personal vision of fashion, has ensured, under the aegis of Silvana Coveri, Enrico's sister, the continuity of the brand and its projection towards the future.
