Vintage Selection 31

Vintage Selection: The Next Past!

Featuring clothing, design objects and accessories that have made their mark on fashion culture, VINTAGE SELECTION returns to the Stazione Leopolda from Wednesday 24 to Sunday 28 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 (24-26 January).

The relationship with the world of Pitti Immagine - that brings Vintage Selection into the powerful communication flow produced by all its fairs - is also underlined by the theme of this 31st edition: The Next Past, a title that is reminiscent of a fantasy blockbuster or a successful upcoming television series, and is inspired by the leitmotif of next January’s Pitti Immagine fairs focused on cinema. Naturally Vintage Selection will interpret this theme in its own way.
Amidst the desire for remakes, reboots and prequels, “returning to the past” and the proposition of pasts that are always new has now become a constant and a factor of success on both the big and small screen as well as in contemporary fashion. The throwbacks to the decades filled with glam and style like the '70s, '80s and '90s in series like “Stranger Things”, “Glow” and “Narcos”, will direct the display and graphic choices of our fair as well as the special “Shiny Vibes” exhibition – from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. for the entire duration of the Fair – which will present clothing from the most famous movie sets of the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s through over 30 surprising outfits.

As always Vintage Selection will also feature the Lounge Area which, during happy hour, will be animated by themed DJ sets and performances organized by Tuballoswing and PopUp Events.
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.
