Karl Lagerfeld Visions of Fashion at Pitti Uomo
An exhibition dedicated to the Kaiser’s very impressive photographic career will be unveiled at the international menswear trade show.
A man of little words but a whole lot of talent, Karl Lagerfeld perhaps prefers to express himself with fashion design and photography. This year, he celebrates his extensive photographic career with “Karl Lagerfeld_Visions of Fashion” at the Pitti Uomo, a biannual tradeshow for menswear.
The retrospective, held at the Palazzo Pitti in Florence and curated by Eric Pfrunder and Gerhard Steidl, is a journey through his uniquely sophisticated photographic style, which he applies to a wide range of advertising campaigns, editorial features and portraits.
Starting from the grand staircase, Scalone del Moro and then winding its way through the rooms of the Galleria Palatina, the Sala Bianca and the two rooms of the Appartmenti degli Arazzi, the exhibition is an extensive journey through the lens of the Kaiser. His exhibition is one of the many high-profile extracurricular events scheduled during the menswear fashion event and runs alongside a special fashion show by ex-Dior designer Raf Simons.
“Karl Lagerfeld_Visions of Fashion” will be open to public on 15 June 2016, with a closing date yet to be announced. Pitti Uomo runs from 14 – 17 June.
