On the occasion of Pitti Immagine Uomo 90, in the evening of Thursday 16th June, Pitti Immagine will proudly present Florence Calling: Raf Simons, an event celebrating one of the greatest innovators in contemporary fashion and his return to Florence.
“Florence holds a special place in my heart – says Raf Simons – as, over the years, I have regularly come back to show my work or to collaborate on ventures that closely mirrored my thoughts about it. I am thrilled to be there again this season to present my S/S 2017 collection as well as a special project we are developing especially for Pitti.”
“There is also an even more powerful emotional element, a very personal note”, concludes Cianchi. “I believe that Raf Simons, like no other person in fashion, is able to grasp the restless spirit of youth, its lights and sounds, along with a nostalgia for youth, which is a vital and positive acceptance of maturity. And this is why he succeeds so well in presenting the myth of youth in new forms and ways.”
