HELD BETWEEN JUNE 12TH TO 15TH 2018
PALAZZO PUCCI VIA DE’ PUCCI 6 FLORENCE
Bonaveri – A fan of Pucci is a tribute to the creative spirit of two of Italy’s leading fashion & design houses.
On the occasion of Pitti Uomo, Bonaveri and Pucci have come together to celebrate a shared vision of creativity and craftsmanship.
Palazzo Pucci in Florence was the backdrop to a spectacular exhibition of Bonaveri mannequins and bust forms all dressed in garments from the Pucci archive.
Conceived by creative director Emma Davidge, the exhibition is a showcase of Italian craft, style and creativity.
A giant mannequin in the Palazzo Pucci courtyard watches over five Schläppi pieces designed in the 1970s, all painted in Emilio Pucci’s iconic ‘Vivara’ print.
Bonaveri Sartorial mannequins are the front row guests at a runway show. Each one is individually finished in classic Pucci colours, wearing bags, scarves, hats and jewellery from the Pucci archive.
The Archive Room
Just off Emilio Pucci’s former study, Mannequins from Bonaveri’s Tribe and Schläppi 4000 Junior collection are displayed in garments from the Pucci Archive.
The Art Room
In this ironic and humorous display, Bonaveri and Pucci have come together to showcase their respective artistic skills. Each piece draws inspiration from key moments in Pucci’s heritage, using both vintage and current Bonaveri mannequin collections.
Bonaveri is proud to support the advancement and preservation of traditional artisan skills. The Atelier, located in Emilio Pucci’s former studio, illustrates the craftsmanship applied in creating Bonaveri’s products.
A beautiful outdoor installation on the stunning rooftops of Florence.
