Back from 22 to 26 January, 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 74. Experimental workshops that look to fashions from yesteryear and the archives that give today’s designers their creative ideas, once again Vintage Selection will involve exhibitors and an audience of fans, the curious and designers from big international fashion houses, in town for Pitti Filati. The theme for this edition will be RETROGAMING, a tribute to the passion for old-fashioned videogames, dedicated to retrogamers, always on the lookout for objects of desire like Atari 2600 or Commodore 64 consoles.
The main new entries include the noteworthy new Vintage Food Area, for "cult" food and drink. With great artisan classics and taste bud ticklers not to be missed, visitors will be able to taste and buy products by Tortapistocchi®, Nonno Lancia, Moa-Birra Artigianale, Sapori del Lagonero and Baladin Birrificio Agricolo, just some of the exhibitors in a special layout just waiting to be discovered!
Another must-visit is the sixties-style Lampimposa Photographic Set where visitors and exhibitors can have their photo taken with a Polaroid that combines and old effect with digital printing. The “Garbage Revolution” exhibition by Rodolfo Lacquaniti will be set up in the Alcatraz section, which will showcase 50 mutants made from recycled waste. Finally, thanks to the success of past editions, there will be the return of the “Miss and Mister Vintage” competition and “Vintage Tours”, shining the limelight on Vespas, Lambrettas, Ciao, Atala and others that have written the history of two wheelers.
At each edition Vintage Selection stands as a real festival of the vintage culture, offering shopping, surprises and entertainment. This year, in line with the Pitti Filati theme and its Spazio Ricerca, it will have the slogan - Play Vintage Selection.
