Vintage Selection n. 18

The fair-event dedicated to vintage clothing, accessories and design objects

Stazione Leopolda

From 5 to 8 July 2011 the Stazione Leopolda in Florence will host Vintage Selection , the fair-event dedicated to vintage clothing, accessories and design objects held at the same time as Pitti Filati 69. A key event for cool-hunters and style bureaus of major international fashion houses, as well as a not-to-miss opportunity for a huge audience of enthusiasts and collectors, Vintage Selection is also a research lab that looks to the fashions of the past, as well as a vast archive that today’s designers turn to for inspiration and new ideas. There are some great surprises in store at this 18th edition: Vintage Selection is coming of age and taking on greater “responsibilities” and broadening its scope to encompass a 360° view of contemporary vintage culture directly involving the exhibitors and visitors. This edition’s main theme will be film – presented in the atmosphere of a cool summer evening and featuring showings of old cult movies in the Leopolda forecourt and in the Alcatraz area. As a premiere event at this edition, A.N.G.E.L.O. Vintage Palace will present SMALL MUSEUM VOL. 5.0: ISSEY MIYAKE project, an exhibition dedicated to Issey Miyake, the cult designer and artist who revolutionized the relationship between body and dress, technology and nature, uniqueness and practicality.
