Vintage Optical Views
Widen your Senses

For the theme of its 32nd edition – to be held in Florence from Wednesday 27 to Friday 29 June in the Medici Pavilion of the Fortezza da Basso - Vintage Selection will be personalizing its reference to ”Optical Power”, the theme of the Pitti Immagine summer fairs.
It will do so on the subtle thread of optical illusion with the “Vintage Optical Views exhibition. Widen your Senses”: mini-settings in which the lively graphic patterns of clothing and fashion accessories from the 60s to the 80s play at blending themselves into the stage backdrop, creating the appearance of invisibility and suggesting new, disturbing sensorial horizons.
The Vintage Selection rendezvous is one of the most important on a European level for quality vintage design and fashion with its select exhibitors and their collections of clothing, accessories and objects.  And one of its distinctive features and strengths is that it is always held concomitantly with Pitti Immagine Filati - the international fair dedicated to the best yarns for the knitting industry that at every edition attracts thousands of buyers, fashion designers, creatives and fashion experts from all over the world who find precious inspiration for their research at Vintage Selection.  Added to this each time is the massive public of enthusiasts, collectors and people with an interest in vintage culture as well as the many tourists visiting Florence that make Vintage Selection and its fringe events a regular reference festival for this retro-contemporary dimension of the fashion lifestyle.

The opening hours of the summer edition of Vintage Selection - Medici Pavilion of the Fortezza da Basso - are from 9.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. on Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 June and from 9.00 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. on Friday 29 June.
