VINTAGE SELECTION at Stazione Leopolda

luis vuitton bagsYesterday I've been to the Vintage Selection: the vintage clothing, accessories and designer objets fair.
Vintage Selection is a research laboratory studying the fashions of the past. The event is attended by a vast public of collectors and enthusiasts and, due to its being held concomitantly with Pitti Filati, it has become a must for fashion designers, cool hunters and the style offices of top international fashion companies who come to Florence to find inspiration for their creative research.

The protagonist for this edition is the world that revolves around uniforms and fashion’s ironic interpretations of military wear. A journey through periods and cultures from all over the world: from the uniforms worn by the British army in India to the US airmen’s flight jackets and the Soviet uniforms of old.
There will be a special focus on a very topical genre, eyewear, with top international exhibitors bringing cult products by Christian Dior, Nina Ricci, Gianni Versace, Ray-Ban and Fiorucci to Florence. The new features include a special selection of luxury items and leather goods from France. Big designer couture will also be represented along with historical vintage fashion brands: from Chanel to Pierre Cardin, Emilio Pucci to Roberta di Camerino, Balenciaga to Gucci.

Collections from firms making customized vintage: clothes subjected to innovative treatments or transformed through tailoring are available for purchase by buyers and visitors. In particular, for this edition, some exhibitors will be bringing their interpretations of one or more items of military clothing.

At this edition of Vintage Selection at the Stazione Leopolda, Chinese memorabilia inspired by the figure of leader Mao Zedong, is the protagonist of the MAO FOR SALE fair curated by Gherardo Frassa.

RDF 102.7, the event’s official radio station, will be providing non-stop vintage music throughout the five days of the event.

The staff of Convivium will welcome visitors to the gourmet area for very special breakfasts, colorful lunches or snacks, right up to aperitif time.
