Karl Lagerfeld – Visions of Fashion

On the occasion of Pitti Immagine Uomo 90, on June 14 in Florence, Palazzo Pitti hosted “KARL LAGERFELD – Visions of Fashion”, a photography exhibition curated by Eric Pfrunder and Gerhard Steidl, which represents Karl Lagerfeld’s entire photographic oeuvre and includes many unpublished works. The exhibition – that will be on show until October 23rd – 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.

“KARL LAGERFELD – Visions of Fashion” is a special anthological exhibition celebrating Karl Lagerfeld’s diverse and elegant approach to photography: photos from fashion shoots published in the world’s most important fashion magazines – among them different editions of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Numéro and V Magazine – and others inspired by classical mythology such as the series “Le Voyage d’Ulysse” and “Daphnis and Chloe”. The show assembles 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.

The exhibition starts from the grand staircase, Scalone del Moro, and winds 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.

As to the Sala Bianca, where Italian fashion was born in 1951, the curators have selected fashion photos by Karl Lagerfeld printed on lightweight paper that will flutter from the ceiling, recalling the lithe movements of models on the runway. “KARL LAGERFELD – Visions of Fashion” is part of the “Special Program for the 2016 Pitti Immagine Fairs”, promoted by the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana with a grant from the Ministero dello Sviluppo EconomicoMinistry for Economic Development and Agenzia ICE – in support of Italian trade fairs and Made in Italy.
