For Pitti Uomo in June 2018, Emilio Pucci and Bonaveri were working together to celebrate the craftsmanship and the history of the two brands, staging an exhibition in the rooms and courtyardof Palazzo Pucci, in Via dei Pucci in Florence. The event wascurated by Laudomia Pucci and Emma Davidge, creative director of the London agency Chameleon Visual, and brings back to life the atmosphere of Marquis Emilio Pucci’s atelier.Mannequins dressed in the brand’s historic clothes and sitting on chairs in neat rows in the first-floor gallery were reminiscent of the historic fashion shows. The courtyard was dominated by a gigantic signalling mannequin painted with an iconic pattern in rose-pink and lilac, striped with a few black brush-strokes. In some of the first-floor rooms, on large tables, workers cut out the paper patterns almost as if time had stood still. The most spectacular clothes in a whirligig of colours were displayed on white plinths in the hall with stuccoes and frescoes. So that the city could also be a part of this show,on the Palazzo balcony looking onto Via dei Pucci 4 mannequins were sitting with legs crossed, dressed head to toe in patterned jersey in shades of fuchsia.
