Pitti Discovery presents

Intermission

First monographic project with a fashion designer, Hedi Slimane

Stazione Leopolda

Hedi Slimane, creative director of Dior Homme, in charge of all the collections and global image, is one of the most influential designers in the world today.
The installation entitled Intermission 1 is one of the most complex and demanding Pitti Immagine production of the past few years. Four thousand square meters of the Stazione Leopolda, divided exactly in half between the two naves host the reinterpretation - or rather the reconstruction - of the Galerie des Glaces in the Palace of Versailles and the garden maze situated alongside of the famous room.
The book, also produced by Pitti Immagine and published by Edizioni Carta, is not an exhibition catalogue. It is a parallel and separate study that also focuses on the concept of the filter, transparency and refraction - constant themes in Slimane’s creative philosophy.
