A retrospective of Karl Lagerfeld’s photography will take place at Palazzo Pitti in Florence, on the occasion of Pitti Uomo 90 as a part of their program of hot events this season that will include (as previously announced) Russian Gosha Rubchinskiy’s guest designer show, Raf Simons' special project, Fausto Puglisi menswear collection debut, Lucio Vanotti and Japanese Label Visvim’s presentation.
This exhibition will be curated by Eric Pfrunder and Gerhard Steidl and will represent Karl Lagerfeld’s entire photographic work featuring also some unpublished photographs , assembling an extraordinary collection of more than 200 images created using a variety of techniques including daguerreotypes, platinum prints, polaroid transfers, resinotypes, screen-prints and digital prints.
On show until October 23rd, 2016 - KARL LAGERFELD - Visions of Fashion 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.
The exhibition will start from the grand staircase, Scalone del Moro, and wind its way through the rooms of the Galleria Palatina, the Sala Bianca and the two rooms of the Appartamenti degli Arazzi in a continuous dialogue between the sizes of the pictures and the exhibition areas: from the smaller, subtle images to be shown in the Galleria Palatina, almost as if to punctuate the tour of the masterpiece-filled museum, to the imposing pictures in the Appartamenti degli Arazzi that converse with the beautiful tapestries on display.
Looking forward to seeing you in Florence!!
