The theme of the winter show interprets the similarity of many generations in fashion and contemporary styles.
Pitti Generation(s) is the guiding theme of the salons in January – says Agostino Poletto, Deputy General Manager of Pitti Immagine – and talks about the similarity of many different generations and styles in the fashion world today. The contemporary speed compresses and mixes the personal time and generations, between nostalgic reflection and experimentation in a global world while overcoming boundaries. So Pitti Generation(s) recounts, with humor and lightness, an era where age is becoming more of a state of mind than master, with mature men in jeans and t-shirts and beards young Victorian with a passion for vintage. “
With a set designed by Oliviero Baldini, the Fortezza da Basso will welcome visitors between installations and surprising inroads, between art and performance, which will transform the grounds of the square opposite the Pavilion, the facade of the Lyceum and other key locations of the Fortress, for an unprecedented generational representation. Time, different styles and genres emerge in an eclectic mix, all under the ironic and surreal of hundreds of eyes that with their “blink”, will transform the square of the Main Pavilion. And yet, the Fortezza da Basso is an exceptional location for such a special event that will launch a surprising way, theme Pitti Generation(s).
