IF I COULD | UNLESS WE
edited by Linda Loppa
From 11 to 14 June the Manifattura Tabacchi spaces
will host a series of installations between art and fashion
The exhibition will be inaugurated today, with a preview for the press, in the evocative spaces of Manifattura Tabacchi , “If i could | unless we ” by Linda Loppa , a leading figure in the international fashion scene. Designed as a night walk through the uninhabited spaces of Manifattura Tabacchi, the exhibition unfolds among the installations of seven designers / artists who offer their vision of fashion and more. Bart Hess, Lara Torres, Armando Chant, Moses Hamborg, Bernhard Willhelm, Clemens Thornquist and Senjan Jansen together with the curator have devised a path out of fashion clichés: no clothes, no catwalks, no timeline, no script.
" By inviting you to Manifattura Tabacchi we want to involve you in some fashion / art / sound experiences, " said curator Linda Loppa . "By talking and observing, we can create emotions to share; but only if we don't look back. We will walk and talk together or alone. We will enter the world of another and dream together. Seven designers / artists offer to share their vision of fashion and more, as they walk together through Manifattura Tabacchi ".
"W e were immediately fascinated by the idea of a night walk, which evokes a different dimension, meditative, in the balance between fashion and art. It is a path that includes multidisciplinary installations, able to express the spirit of experimentation that is part of the project of Manifattura and its vocation for the contemporary. "this is how Michelangelo Giombini, Head of Product Development of Manifattura Tabacchi , talks about the project.
The installation, produced by Manifattura Tabacchi, proposes a dialogue with the concept of Pitti Immagine, an event of primary importance for the city of Florence and for national and international fashion, useful for bringing together not only the City but also fashioncommunity, to the new Manifattura Tabacchi project.
The exhibition will be open to the public from 11 to 14 June from 9.30 pm to midnight - free admission
