unfortunately there is not "much" that I can talk about that can be satisfactory to you.
maybe enough info willingly comes from the english sphere, and you don't any more need to listen to someone who doesn't speak english.
just hoping time will not be a triple burden to him.
"la memoria that allows us to review the past, understand the present, and sense the future.
for what I did, do now, and have to do
in the past, in the present, and in the future
I repent, agonize, hearten
in regret, in suffering, in expectation
the sour experience, the bitter fruit, the sweet hope
a menace, an affliction, an assuagement"
it seems as if, since the presentation in the tomato processing plant in 2000, his gaze on fashion has been the gaze of an outsider who is at home nowhere. it's the gaze of a wanderer who seeks after something that does not exist, back and forth like a pendulum, between no-more and not-yet, in this time of need.
perhaps.. he has his own ideals that seems not in the right time, right place.
the future - altruistic altieri seem to see in term of fashion are similar to the ideal of web 3.0. (and after all, his a linux user) >> "open source" "semantic" "personified" "live mass collaborations" - "social uni form".
and yet, this ideal occupy hint of communism - bound to collide with the democratic change + rise of the consumer china.
anyway.. something trivial - one of the feat of laced m_moria footwears is that the laces has no end, it's fused into an infinite loop intertwined between eyelets.
there used to be a carpe diem silver circular zipper-puller in the shape of snake like uroborus, and a minimalized version of the puller applied to avantindietro a decade later.
the circular trajectory, the repeating nature of our time.
closing where it began but on a higher level, returning to the beginning as an advance, evolution.
m_moria gives me a faint dejavu since it has some vestige of the cordovan boots delivered to stores in 00.
when he said "seize the moment", according to his explanation, he was not referring to this moment but a certain moment when his exploring had begun. sort of linear progression in the form of spiral. in a way, divining the future is not only looking forward but thinking backward. at once anticipation and recollection. perhaps that's why his products sometimes look like ooparts. the concept behind lmaltieri was the fusion of old and new. l (his son's initial) - m (aurizio) altieri.
serapis's creature with the three heads of past, present, and future entwined with a serpent, a symbol of infinity.
( btw, LUC's trademark, that open circle, the washer, O of o-project, etc...all represent infinity, along with the idea that knitting is basically looping. )
