Ecology of Mind is the title of the spring summer 2021 collection of Tiziano Guardini who has chosen to create only unique pieces to continue his path responsible in view of the next summer season. The inspiration comes from the XXII International Exhibition of the Milan Triennale entitled Broken Nature: Design takes on Human Survival of 2019, thematic exhibition with which we wanted to investigate the state of man’s relationship with the environment. Then explore the concept of restorative design, as an attempt to restore this relationship, and precisely this represents the fulcrum of Guardini’s project.
In fact, his design also aims to reconstruct not only the link between man and nature, but also, and more literally, the individual items of the collection which are the result of a patchwork of shapes and figures cut from a series of different fabrics. donated by Italian companies such as Manteco, Colombo Group is Mantero. In this way the designer creates one capsule collection of outerwear that for their unrepeatability are unique pieces and with which he wants to eliminate the concept of waste, totally foreign to the environment. Guardini’s responsibility evolves once again, emphasizing more and more ecological attention and making it, from season to season, a philosophy of life as deeply rooted as possible.
The spring summer 2021 collection was also immortalized as in an open-air exhibition, in a natural context, within which it fits without any solution of continuity. Each coat is exhibited as an ecological work of art, showing his designs made through the union of recovered fabrics. These installations are flanked by the photos in which he is the protagonist Simonetta Gianfelici who always wears outerwear in a bucolic context, in line with the concept of Tiziano Guardini.
