On the occasion of Pitti Uomo 87, Fondazione Pitti Discovery will proudly present T. Lipop and Alberto Premi Design. The winners of WHO IS ON NEXT? UOMO 2014 – contest born from the collaboration of Pitti Immagine, AltaRoma and L’Uomo Vogue - will be the stars of two site-specific performances featuring the international premieres of their 2015-16 fall/winter collections for men. Over the past several seasons, Fondazione Pitti Discovery has been engaged in creating opportunities for new fashion designers and those who combine fashion’s materials with other artistic and aesthetic experiences.
A decidedly minimal aesthetic combined with fine fabrics and extremely innovative tailoring: this is the spirit of T.LIPOP, the English ready-to-wear brand established in 2011 by creative head Tom Lipop and his business partner Eser Aydemir. In the “Lipop man”, the concept of less is more is developed through a reinterpretation of contemporary tailoring dictates with elegant lines and deconstructed shapes.
“Winning Who Is On Next? has made it possible for us to acquaint the world with our brand’s creativity that finds its power in attention to detail, original lines and references to tradition” - says Tom Lipop - “Thanks to the support of the promoters and of the sponsors, Fashion Valley, Tomorrow and Yoox, we have been able to take our brand to the next level and we have organized a special fashion show to present our new collection this coming January. I hope that this experience can generate greater visibility. And I hope that we can emulate the success of Umit Benan and Andrea Incontri, just to mention two!”
The projects of FONDAZIONE PITTI DISCOVERY are produced thanks to grants from theCENTRO DI FIRENZE PER LA MODA ITALIANA e diPITTI IMMAGINE and to the important contribution of ENTE CASSA DI RISPARMIO DI FIRENZE.
