Vintage Selection 29
“Vintage Selection. Let’s dance!”
Featuring clothing, design objects and accessories that have made their mark on fashion culture, VINTAGE SELECTION returns to the Stazione Leopolda from Wednesday 25 to Sunday 29 January. With its unique atmosphere, Vintage Selection is the fair-cum-creative/stylistic laboratory that offers a place for the big names in international fashion to meet with their buyers and fashion designers.
VINTAGE SELECTION – which at the last winter edition welcomed over 13,500 visitors also from Germany, USA and Japan – has earned itself a special role among the Italian and European fairs devoted to vintage fashion, design and culture. The factors which have contributed to its success are the scouting activities and selection of the exhibition proposals as well as the unique synergy with Pitti Filati, the key international event featuring yarns for the knitting industry organized by Pitti Immagine at the Fortezza da Basso (25-27 January).
And in order to make this relationship even closer, Vintage Passenger will be staged inside the Fortezza da Basso: inspired by the theme of the research area, travel, the exhibition – directed by Angelo Figus, the art director of Pitti Filati’s Spazio Ricerca – will shine the spotlight on a selection of the collections showcased in Vintage Selection.
The theme of Vintage Selection n. 29 is “Vintage Selection. Let’s dance!” dedicated to Disco Dance which represented an important season in Eighties music and fashion.
This motif is also connected to “Pitti Dance Off”, the theme of the Pitti Immagine winter fairs, and linked to the new layout of the Stazione Leopolda. Also inspired by this is “Disco Parade”, the exhibition - installation which – from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. for the duration of the Fair - will showcase discotheque clothing from the ’80s and ’90s with the help of 20 surprising outfits.
As always Vintage Selection will also feature the Lounge Area which, on 25 and 26 January, during happy hour, will be animated by a magnificent medley of choreographies based on ‘80s DJ sets, performed by the “Le Giuladies” dance group of the Tuballoswing cultural association.
Radio Toscana is confirmed as the fair’s media partner.
In the leisure area the fair’s bar/restaurant will be managed by Tuscan Excelsia, one of the top caterers in the Florence area
