Carlo Brandelli for Kilgour will be Pitti Uomo 88 designer project
The Anglo-Italian designer and creative director of Kilgour, who will be making his Italian debut
Palazzo Medici Riccardi
On Wednesday evening, 17 June, the Anglo-Italian designer will be presenting his style and his vision for the first time ever in Italy and the setting will be the magnificent Palazzo Medici Riccardi.
Carlo Brandelli, the talent behind a menswear brand that combines art and the Savile Row heritage with all the aspects of contemporary design, will present his S/S 2016 men’s collection for Kilgour in a site-specific performance.
The inner courtyard of Palazzo Medici Riccardi will host a special installation with transparent surfaces, mirrors and unexpected reflections and overlays referencing the colors of Mr. Brandelli’s spring-summer collection. It is a tribute to Florentine artistic and cultural traditions which he interprets in a totally contemporary key, with his distinctive style signature.
“We met Carlo Brandelli in the new Savile Row store, “says Lapo Cianchi, Director of Communications and Events at Pitti Immagine, “where everything speaks of his ability to control the brand and of a multidisciplinary approach to fashion. It is as if he is suggesting that fashion, art, design and the other visual arts should feed off of each other to achieve real innovation, even though the starting point is full knowledge of and respect for heritage and craftsmanship”.
