Fiorucci Making A Comeback?

Fiorucci was one of the most talked about department stores of its time, and its legacy has continued on long after the doors closed. The store was known for its quirky, yet sexy finds and can be credited for starting Madonna’s career, one of Fiorucci’s jewelry designer found black rubber rings in a plumbing store in Tokyo, which she turned into bracelets for her friend, Madonna. The 59th Street shop was described as a daytime Studio 54, where it was a mix of rebellious fashionistas, artists and suburban teenagers. Cherubs became known for something else besides love and Valentines day, it became Firoucci’s logo and at times took on the Fiorucci spirit by donning them in accessories and sunglasses, which appealed to the out-of-box-thinkers who loved the stores, even more. Those simple off-the-wall changes are what made Fiorucci great. Elio Fiorucci sought out peculiar things for the department store, recruiting young designers like Betsy Johnson, not to mention being the first to create skin tight skinny jeans. Now the brand and name is being revived by Janie and Stephen Schaffer, who are starting off by releasing a jeans line that embodies that sexy Fiorucci spirit. Tees and sweatshirts will be offered as well, with an underwear and swimwear line to follow and eventually a store. But the revival of the Firucci shop isn’t new, back in 2001 Edwin Jeans, the Japanese Brand the Schaffers purchased Fiorucci from, opened a store in New York City’s Noho area on Broadway—you know, where the big Urban Outfitters is. Back in ’01 the crisp white department store, although flanked with quirky, artsy items that made Firorucci fantastic, it was dominated by Edwin Jeans items. There weren’t those skintight jeans the brand was known for, instead they were silhouettes by Edwin Jeans. What will make this revival successful is if the authenticity of Fiorucci is in place while modernizing it to be reintroduced to a new generation. The Schaffers seem to be on the right track, as they took inspiration for the jeans from the archives and even worked with Elio Fiorucci’s pattern maker. The thing about Firorucci’s sexy was that it was playful and not lewd, Elio’s campaigns featured groups of diverse women who were seductive in a genuine way. They looked, happy and self aware which gave an empowered vibe, and that is what the Schaffers have to live up to. In times like now, that fierce optimism and fun is needed.
