What happens when cuisine blends with haute couture. Can you describe an item of clothing in terms of its flavor, its odor? Or the taste of a fabric, that desire which makes your mouth water? Sampling a dish of the latest creative cuisine, can you be surprised by its fanciful texture, enchanted by its masterly form? In short, can the language of the contemporary world, so accustomed to collusions, mixtures, contrasts and allusions, come up with new recipes that bring together two such apparently incompatible worlds as designer clothing and signature cuisine? Let's try to combine, for once, fashion and food in their most up-to-date interpretations. The collection of haute couture dishes invented by Matias Perdomo, one of the most inventive of the latest generation of chefs, holds a dialogue with the creations of a dozen contemporary designers. Ennio Capasa, Angela Missoni, Agatha Ruiz de la Prada, Dean and Dan Caten, Prada, Giorgio Armani, Anna Molinari, Donatella Versace, Marni, Dolce and Gabbana, and Antonio Marras have given Matias the cues for his unexpected creations.
