Pitti Immagine Filati: concept lab for global trends with the theme P1tt1 Lucky Numb3r5

Pitti Immagine Filati, the key international event featuring yarns for  the knitting industry, will be held at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence from 29 June to 1 July 2016. Both a dynamic research lab and an authoritative global observatory that looks onto lifestyle trends for the future, Pitti Filati presents world-scale excellence in yarns to its audience of international buyers and designers from the biggest names in fashion who come to Florence looking for creative inspiration. 
This, the 79th edition, will feature previews of yarns for the 2017/2018 fall-winter season in a dynamic setting that makes visitors feel welcome and makes doing business a pleasure. 
This coming June, with the theme P1tt1 Lucky Numb3r5, Pitti Immagine is betting on numbers: their aesthetic, graphic and symbolic qualities in fashion and beyond. No, we will not be looking at numbers as indices of quantity but at the beauty of their lines, at whether they – the numbers – are right or wrong, exact or estimates, that we can be number one or two or zero, that there are lucky numbers and unlucky ones. Whether we realize it or not, numbers are always in and around our lives, so in June eye-catching numbers will fill the entire Fortezza da Basso. Pitti Immagine knows a lot about numbers and at Pitti Lucky Numbers  we will tell you all about them with an ironic twist; design by Oliviero Baldini.
