Vintage Selection n. 20

Held from 4 to 7 July 2011 at Stazione Leopolda in Florence, Vintage Selection is the exhibition-show for clothing, accessories and articles with vintage design, scheduled to coincide with Pitti Filati 71.  Workshops that look to fashion from the past, plus historic archives brimming with ideas used by the designers of today for creating their collections, the 20th Vintage Selection will see a growing number of exhibitors and visitors. Casual Gamers, the theme of this edition, will feature sport that can be practised by anyone, budding sportsmen even for just a few days. The forecourt of the Leopolda will become a seaside resort called Leopolda Beach, featuring a series of sports for all to take part in. Meanwhile, Summer Gamers, the thread running through the I LoveArchive2 exhibition of photos taken from the Pitti archives, will investigate the more “summery” side of vintage fashion. Plus bike races, competitions with prizes, initiatives like Tag-Automatica, concerts and dancing. A real festival of vintage culture in other words, offering retail therapy, surprises and entertainment
