Giacomo Pavia

The antique furrier’s art seems to have gone off the new generations’ radar. Forgotten. Dangerous. Giacomo, on the other hand, has rediscovered it and treats materials that are synonymous with luxury in an instinctively playful, colourful, almost childish manner. The world of sport, and tennis to be precise, in the ‘80s when it still hadn’t been rediscovered, may seem the very antithesis of good taste but in Giacomo’s hands it becomes incandescent material that helps him render contemporary an idea of glamour that’s exaggerated, ironic and brazen.
