a guest with a vision

In the upcoming weeks Florence will again be the focus
of fashion people's attention: Pitti Uomo 78th edition will
run for three days starting on the 15th together with its
sister fair-event called Pitti Woman precollection where
a selected group of 6o international brands will showcase
exclusive previews of their own s/s 2011 collections.

While Jil Sander will be the the men's event guest of honor,
Pitti Discovery Foundation invited Haider Ackermann
who will present a site-specific performance especially
conceived for the baroque Palazzo Corsini venue.

Haider Ackermann lives and works in Antwerp following
a globetrotting childhood, studied fashion design at 
the local world-famous Royal Academy of Arts where 
gave birth to his own first female collection presented 
in Paris back in 2002.
A very soft and sumptuous collection which impressed
worldwide buyers also inducing Italian leather goods
top-notch brand Ruffo to offer him the creative direction
of Ruffo Research dept.
He's so much intrigued by cultural differences and his works  
show a superb mix of high & low taste, elegance and street style 
where the plain aesthetic of forms meets vitality and joie de vivre.
