Years ’90 – 2000: Nothing is created, nothing is destroyed, but everything is transformed

di Fabiola Palmieri "Nothing is created, nothing is destroyed, but everything is transformed", the famous phrase of Lavoisier, despite being dated to the second half of the 18th century, is confirmed as very current: fashion is approaching an ideal of "subjective" perfection and repeats over time: it is one, as the ancient Greeks would say it is “èn tò pán”, “everything is one”, that is, everything is reduced to a single fundamental principle, which encompasses everything.

The great 50s and 60s

By Fabiola Palmieri The historical picture of that period is clear: slowly, but with tenacity, Europe is intent on healing the wounds caused by the Second World War, while the United States is in the economic boom thanks to the Marshall Plan. The rebirth is visible not only in society, but also in the personalities of ordinary women. It isn’t a coincidence if the woman becomes the angel of the hearth: yes, all right, she is always in order and beautiful as the New Look asks, but she is now surrounded by the most new appliances, ready to care for her husband come back from the front and her family, even more numerous.
