Perhaps it was jealousy towards the success of „Anna G.” that inspired Alessandro Mendini to delight uns with the figure „Alessandro M.“ As it certainly easy to see, this corkscrew is the self-portrait of the designer. Even though it looks simple, in reality it was anything but easy to create a new character who would fit both into the autobiographical experience of the designer and the scenery of international design.
Alessandro (the designer) designed the project and, in comparison to its companion Anna G. that had meanwhile become famous, endowed his creation with an identity that is clear and different, but at the same time complementary. Not least of all, “Alessandro M.” is also a product that has various novelties to offer: besides the standard version that is available in two different colours, there is also a range of Haute-couture season collections. These are tailor-made clothes, collections that follow today’s fashion, each of which is manufactured in limited editions as collectibles that follow the season rhythm of fashion design.
