Stazione Leopolda

From 22 to 26 January 2014 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 74. Vintage Selection is also a research lab that looks to the fashions or the past, as well as a vast archive that today’s designers turn to for inspiration. And, once again Vintage Selection will involve the exhibitors and visitors with a wealth of offerings. RETROGAMING, this edition’s theme, will be a hymn to the passion for old videogames and to retrogamers with wish lists in hand, hunting for things like the Commodore 64 or Atari 2600 consoles. And there is more: the new Vintage Food Area, featuring cult products and beverages and the 1960s style Lampimposa – meaning essentially, “in a flash” photo set where visitors and vendors will have their pictures taken with Polaroid cameras that combine old effects with digital printing. It’s going to be a festival of vintage culture with lots of opportunities for shopping, surprises and entertainment, and a slogan in line with the theme of Pitt Filati 74  - - Play Vintage Selection.
