On the occasion of Pitti Immagine Uomo 90, on June 14 in Florence, Palazzo Pitti hosted “KARL LAGERFELD – Visions of Fashion”, a photography exhibition curated by Eric Pfrunder and Gerhard Steidl, which represents Karl Lagerfeld’s entire photographic oeuvre and includes many unpublished works.
The exhibition – that will be on show until October 23rd – is made possible thanks to the recent agreement of collaboration with the Gallerie degli Uffizi signed by the Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery, with the support of Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana and Pitti Immagine.
As to the Sala Bianca, where Italian fashion was born in 1951, the curators have selected fashion photos by Karl Lagerfeld printed on lightweight paper that will flutter from the ceiling, recalling the lithe movements of models on the runway.In the 1960s/1970s Italy’s emerging ready to wear was shown at the Pitti Palace Fashion shows, with dinner afterwards at Sabatinos…….
