More from The Male Model Music Project's trip to Florence, Italy for Pitti Uomo 80.
The Male Model Music Project attended 'Vestirsi Da Uomo' (Dress Like A Man) directed by Olivier Saillard, fashion curator and director of Paris Galliera Museum.
'Vestirsi Da Uomo', presented by Fondazione Pitti Discovery for the ocassion of Pitti Uomo 80, was a fantastic conceptual show leading us through a sexy, chic, playful and tasteful re-interpretation of men's fashion and timeless elegance.
The protagonists of this delicious performance were Violeta Sanchez, Amalia Vairelli, Axelle Doué and Claudia Huidobro, all of them models from the 1980's and 1990's, who wore exclusive and peculiar pieces from brands that according to Olivier Saillard,express contemporary menswear style. The names are Brunello Cucinelli, Boglioli, Camoshita United Arrows, Church’s English Shoes, Gianvito Rossi, Haver Sack, Montedoro, Nigel Cabourn, Piombo, Roda and Sartorio.
The soundtrack for this exquisite perfomance included Nina Simone's 'Be My Husband' (original 1965 version), a perfect match for the maturity, sensuality and unique appeal of this particular project.
Check out some photos of the show.
