Pitti Immagine to showcase pretty collections for women

Jun '08
Romeo Gigli puts his signature to the sophisticated Rebecca Brown collection; the leather and suede items by Thes & Thes, are so light that they seem like fabric, John De Risi will be showcasing ergonomically styled clothes with leather appliqués, while Nathu, protagonists, of the first Italian Biocouture project, will feature totally biologic clothing.

Focus on accessories: from the presentation of the new 'Archivio' line by Gherardini, dedicated to the most exclusive fashion stores, to the bags with the clean lines by Pierre Louis Mascia; from the classic chic of footwear by Un Dimanche à Venise par Kallisté to the cosmopolitan glamour of shoes by Sebastian to the celebrities' favorite – the colorful jewels by Tarina Tarantino.

This edition of Pitti W_Woman Precollection will also showcase special projects such as the one by Carmina Campus, a new line of handbags by Ilaria Venturini Fendi that combines leather, recycled materials from bits of PVC to truck canvases, from ship ropes to industrial rejects, to vintage lining fabrics, and handcrafted finishes. Each item is different form the next, is numbered and requires several days to make…all within the framework of a creative recycling product aimed at supporting social campaigns in favour of the environment and of human rights for women in the Third World.

Diane von Furstenberg will be the special guest at this edition and she will be celebrated during an elegant, glamorous, en plein air event in the Giardino Torrigiani on Wednesday evening, 19 June that will feature the absolute première showing of the new Cruise/Pre-Spring Collection 2008-09.
