We are all made of stars
Re-Gener-Action is the mood that accompanies the collection and is the theme treated through the continuous exchange between the New and the Old, between the Movement and the Static, between sky and his memory of hearth. The creation of the collection passes from the emotional gesture that imprinted in the memory goes to look for the hidden side of the logical sequence.
A hidden side that surprises and that refers to the passion capable of Re-Gener-Action.
When the emotional gesture manages to inspire and generate beauty and art, it is also capable to accompany the growth of the ecological awareness that animates and generates AELIS creations.

Arte Povera of the 70s” that talks about Nature and artificial Images, while inspiring the creation of disconnected or unrelated elements, almost lost in the cosmic void that surrounds them without ever sucking them in, inspires the creation of a punk bomber jacket decorated as a uniform with precious silver ears of wheat created from the mold of species of ancient wheat that Sofia sows and harvests in Tuscany.

The engagement of AELIS continues in the casting of the muses present at the fashion show because AELIS does not intend to link the femininity of its creations to the gender of its muses. The defense of craftsmanship that includes the concept of art, finds in couture and haute couture a form of real expression.
Creating a dress is synonymous, not only of beauty, but also of artistic creation and recognition of the individual value of the work generatingthe piece of art-couture to wear.
star is the multiverse, star is light, star is beauty.
Search in the past what you see in the future, erase the temporal sensation of the present.
