Vintage Selection No. 21
From the 23rd to the 27th of January 2013, the Stazione Leopolda in Florence will host Vintage Selection no. 21, an event that is no longer a fair showcasing vintage fashion and design objects and remakes (one of the most important of its kind in Italy and Europe), but rather a festival of vintage culture. Every six months Vintage Selection presents a new program of exhibitions, events and communications projects within the fair and throughout the city. This edition’s theme will be Missione Futuro – Mission: The Future: that is, science fiction and retro-futurism, the image of the future we thought would develop starting from the 1950s-60s. It is a theme that fascinated many of the world’s major stylists and designers. And then, there will be Future Trend, the title and theme of the I.LOVE.ARCHIVE3 exhibition: through images from the Pitti Immagine archives it will present the futuristic side of past fashions. And there is more: workshops led by leading figures from Italy’s most important fashion and design schools, an event focused on the world of theater and an exhibition of vintage – what else? – two- and four-wheeled vehicles. And of course, there will be opportunities for shopping, lots of surprises and entertainment and competitions such as the Miss & Mister Vintage contest, projects such as Tag-Automatica, concerts and happy hours with dj sets.
