Jan '10
The fifth edition of Pitti W_Woman Precollection, the Pitti Immagine fair-event dedicated to women's apparel will be held concomitantly with Pitti Uomo 77 in Florence from 12 to 15 January 2010. The Dogana (Via Valfonda) will showcase the preview showings of the 2010-2011 fall/winter collections by about 60 international brands.

“Our primary focus is on the product”, says Agostino Poletto, deputy general manager of Pitti Immagine, “with a selection of brands that best interpret the concept of research on elegance with previews, capsule collections and special projects developed to foster concrete business contacts. The Pitti W offer is increasingly broad; we are pursuing investments in vintage and the world of fragrance and it will all be featured in a totally revised setting - designed by Oliviero Baldini – that facilitates the dialogue between the products and various merchandise categories. As always, careful scouting and selection processes are what make Pitti W the ideal platform for preview presentations of innovative projects and brands with huge potential”.

After last season's success, the Dogana show will once again include the dedicated “Vintage for Pitti W” section – produced in cooperation with A.N.G.E.L.O. Vintage Palace. A special setting will be the backdrop for a selection presented by some of the best in the vintage trade who will be showing their vintage couture, accessory, jewelry and signature scarf collections.

And Pitti W is also bringing back the special area called “Fragranze” with an outstanding array of scent and selective perfume brands – some of which are featured at the Fragranze event produced by Pitti Immagine – essential to the contemporary woman's wardrobe and key lifestyle elements. Among the special projects at this edition there will also be the pret à porter brand .normaluisa that will bring a preview of thenew F/W collection and will present the “must have objects” for a woman.
