One of the most important platforms for men’s clothing and accessory collections, Pitti Uomo, will unveil a new exhibition at The Ephemeral Museum of Fashion this summer. Held in Florence’s Palazzo Pitti, the new exhibition will explore significant fashion moments in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Opening from June 13th to October 22nd 2017, it will be the first time this exhibition has been shown. In a museum noted for its original concepts of staging thematic content, the exhibition will recount moments in the history of fashion and costume and will be narrated with recent additions by the Palais Galliera.
“We are pleased to announce this new project centering on the culture of fashion,” says Andrea Cavicchi, President of the Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery and the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana (CFMI). “This is the fruit of collaboration among the foundation and two of the world’s foremost museums. An event that is important not only for Florence, in it’s effort to fortify its position at the crossroads of international fashion, but for our country’s fashion system as a whole.”
