Pitti Italics

Palazzo Corsini

Aquazzura, the Italian luxury footwear brand created by Colombian-born designer Edgardo Osorio, will be the Pitti Italics feature at the forthcoming edition of Pitti Uomo. 
The Aquazzura style, a perfect blend of modern design and impeccable craftmanship will be the key player in a special event to be held at Palazzo Corsini in Florence on Wednesday evening, 19 June 2013.
Aquazzura is one of the names in this season’s Pitti Italics program that Pitti Immagine has launched to promote and support new generation fashion designers who design and manufacture in Italy and already have enormous international appeal.
"Edgardo Osorio’s fashion experience could be a sort of manifesto for young Italian designers”, says Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine Director of Communications and Events. “Cosmopolitism, entrepreneurial spirit, knowledge and application of traditions and the abilities of manufacturing here in Italy along the ability of combining all this in a distinctive, international, glamorous product that is profoundly Italian”.
“I am very honored that Pitti Immagine invited me to present my creations here in the city that marked the beginning of my career and that I consider my home. Dance and motion will inspire my event. I have always loved women who move, walk and dance in my shoes…”

The FONDAZIONE PITTI DISCOVERY projects have also been realized thanks to the contribution of the CENTRO DI FIRENZE PER LA MODA ITALIANA and PITTI IMMAGINE.
