The sixth day of the 77ª Mostra internazionale d’arte cinematografica di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival, proved far busier, with very topical works being premièred. The Corradi Cinema Lounge at the Ausonia Hungaria hotel hosted Violante Placido and Alessio Boni, who feature in Diego Botta’s Revenge Room, a very relevant tale about revenge porn and the proliferation of content on the web. Also present at the lounge was director Alice Rohrwacher, who directed Omelia contadina (Peasant Homily), highlighting the disappearance of agriculture, with some startling images.
   The cast of Fabrizio Maria Cortese’s comedy Free Liberi also popped by the Corradi Cinema Lounge, including Sandra Milo, Corinne Cléry, Enzo Salvi, Antonio Catania and Ivano Marescotti; as did the cast of Spaccapietre—una promessa, including Licia Lanera. Danish filmmakers Frederik Loui Hviid and Anders Ølholm, who directed Shorta, dealing with the killing of 19-year-old Talib Ben Hassi while in custody, were also guests. The duo say that their film is not political, but one of hope.
   Finally, also attending were Michele Mellara and Alessandro Rossi, whose 50—Santarcangelo Festival deals with the changing trends in theatre and society as seen through the festival.
   Celebrities spotted on the red carpet included Eleonora Gaggero, Nina Verdelli and Alessio Boni, and Baby K.

The Corradi Cinema Lounge at the 77ª Mostra internazionale d’arte cinematografica di Venezia, the Venice Film Festival played host to Gia Coppola, niece of Francis Ford Coppola, and Romola Garai and Susanna Nicchiarelli (Miss Marx) on day five.
   Coppola directs Mainstream, which she calls a ‘satirical fable’ about young Angelinos who aim to create viral content on YouTube, with parallels to earlier films such as Network.
   Director Peter Marcias (Nilde Lotti, the Time of Women), film critic Nick Vivarelli, and Brazilian singer–songwriter Caetano Veloso (Narciso Em Fèrias) also had stints at the Lounge.

Actor and musician Quincy Brown is the new face of Coach’s watch collection.
   The first campaign featuring Brown broke Monday, as Coach launches its C001 watch line. Brown has been photographed by Alessandro Simonetti.
   The C001 range comprises six styles, with numerous options including rubber straps, and stainless steel and ionic-plated bracelets. All feature a unique world time analogue–digital movement, removable case-guard, and a layered dial.
   ‘Quincy is the perfect ambassador to represent this collection. In addition to being true to himself and his art, passionate, enthusiastic, and an all-around good person who cares about the world we live in, Quincy also embodies what Coach stands for: authentic style,’ said Dawn Hurley, vice-president of Coach Watches Movado Group.
   Brown added, ‘Working with Coach has been a dream because it’s about so much more than the æsthetic. We’re not only aligned on values—they’ve always allowed me to be the real me. Finding a partnership like that is priceless. I’m so proud to be part of the C001 watch campaign. In my opinion, time is the most valuable asset in our lives, especially now. We all have the same 24 hours, but it’s what you do with it that genuinely defines who you are.’
   Both Coach and Movado have made a donation to Feeding America to commemorate the launch.
   The watches are available exclusively at coach.com.

Yoshikimono

Artist and musician Yoshiki’s kimono designs will be among those on display at the Tokyo National Museum (東京国立博物館) for its Kimono exhibition, which runs till August 23.
   There are 300 pieces in the exhibition, including those worn by Nobunaga, Hideyoshi, and Ieyasu, spanning a period from the 12th century to today. There are also paintings of kimonos.
   It follows an earlier selection by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London in February.
   Yoshiki’s Yoshikimono brand blends tradition with modernity. His own father owned a kimono producer. His 2020 collection featured imagery from Stan Lee’s Blood Red Dragon (which Lee had based on Yoshiki), and the anime series Attack on Titan.
   On his work’s appearance at the Tokyo National Museum, Yoshiki said, ‘I have come to receive many offers from overseas, but I am truly honoured to have my creations exhibited in Japan, the origin of kimono culture, at the prestigious Tokyo National Museum. I feel gratitude to all of my fans who are constantly supporting me. It would make me happy if you could see the exhibition.’
   More information on the exhibition can be found at kimonoten2020.exhibit.jp/english.html.

Lady Gaga is now officially the face of one of Valentino’s perfumes, the upcoming Voce Viva, by creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli with Valentino Beauty.
   The new campaign breaks in September with the perfume’s release.
   ‘Lady Gaga means freedom, self-consciousness, pure hear,’ said Piccioli. ‘Her participation in this campaign elevates the symbolic power of the project to the highest level. She is the icon of a generation. Her message of freedom, passion for art, self-consciousness and equality is the same our Valentino community stands for. I am so proud for having her in.’
   On the new scent, the house said in a release, ‘Imagined as a voice to spread a message around the world, Valentino Voce Viva invites everyone to touch hearts, inspire others and live their dreams. Expressing the Maison’s values of inclusivity and individuality, Voce Viva celebrates one of the women’s most intimate sense.’
   Lady Gaga, already a modern-day icon and the only artist to receive an Oscar, Grammy, BAFTA and Golden Globe in the same year (for A Star Is Born), has recently released ‘Rain on Me’, a duet with Ariana Grande, and created her own beauty line.
   The star said in the release, ‘Be yourself, love who you are, and never give up your dreams.’
