CHROME X — Alessandro Agudio & Flapper

CHROME X is a Flapper project made in collaboration with the Italian artist Alessandro Agudio. Over the course of 2017 three different turbans in silk have been developed: each gradient printed on fabric was developed starting from a photograph of the eye’s iris of three women. Three special icons of contemporary culture: design gallerist Luisa Delle Piane, artist Goshka Macuga, and fencer Nathalie Moellhausen - were invited to participate by providing a high-resolution image of their irides. Rather than being dedicated to them, the CHROME X project is dedicated right to their own DNA, their unique codex of feminine, unconventional attitude and energy.

In this new and original declination of Agudio’s research, the three CHROME X turbans are wearable portraits: the details of the iris pigmentation are developed into a color palette, designed as garment which is now the genuine part of the genetic unicity of the person. The CHROME X turban is the ‘third eye’ on our head, which provides perception beyond ordinary sight, tool of potential identities to share.

During Woman Fashion Week, CHROME X was presented at MEGA project space in Milan, on September 22nd, 23rd and 24th 2017.
