The multibrand lifestyle concept Goooders, which was conceived and founded in 2019 by Eva Gèraldine Fontanelli, fashion editor and international consultant, has a new home in the district of Porta Nuova.

Born from the idea of ​​supporting different projects created by cooperatives, small local artisans and workers from around the world, the motto of Goooders is “if you do goood, you look goood.”

The location will be the venue for talks, seminars and initiatives related to the theme of ecology, sustainability and social ethics since Goooders also offers consultancy for lifestyle and hospitality brands that want to undertake an ethical and sustainable path.

The brands in the store were selected on the basis of an eco- and human-sustainable spirit: sweatshirts, T-shirts, dresses, caftans, pajama sets, accessories, caps and handmade bags are all made from natural materials such as the finest cotton and linen. Furniture designed by Cappellini gives a touch of design to the space, thanks also to the support of Design Differente, a spin-off of the Iuav University of Venice.

Goooders also has a corner store at Six Senses in Rome and a boutique in Venice inside the JW Marriott hotel until November.

What to See

“Martin Parr. Short and Sweet”

Until the end of the month, Mudec is hosting an exhibition of British documentary photographer Martin Parr. On display are more than 60 photographs that portray contemporary society, approaching some of its most controversial issues, all selected by the artist together with Magnum Photos. Also on display is the body of images from Parr’s “Common Sense” series documenting the relationship between consumerism and the everyday, and an unpublished interview with historian and photography critic Roberta Valtorta. The “Common Sense” series is presented as brightly colored images, printed on A3 paper using a color Xerox printer and readapted to the space in an original, site-specific order.

The exhibition develops along the artistic phases of Parr’s career, such as the black-and-white series taken in his 20s, the “Bad Weather” photos that documents the typically British weather conditions and the “Small World” series portraying the world’s most frequented travel destinations, showing the difference between reality and the idealized concept of these locations by tourists.

A catalog called “Martin Parr. Short and Sweet” accompanies the exhibition.

“Picasso. Metamorphosis of the figure”

Picasso and his art are being celebrated at Mudec, with an exhibition running until June 30 that comprises more than 40 artworks, and 26 sketches from the Book n.7 loaned by the Pablo Ruiz Picasso Foundation.

Many experts call “metamorphoses” Picasso’s creations from 1925 up to the end of his life. The exhibition was curated by Malén Gual, honorary curator of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, and Ricardo Ostalé. The chronological exhibition is divided into five sections with a focus on Picasso’s love of primitive artistic sources and art.

The first section is called “A look towards other cultures,” where visitors can see the influence of ancient Egyptian art and Iberian sculptures, then the “Les Demoiselle D’Avignon” section leads the visitor on the artist’s journey to create one of his most famous works through his sketches. Following are the Cubism phase, World War II and the metamorphosis of the figure.
