Matteo Lamandini at Pitti Uomo

Alternative Set is a schedule of temporary events and installations during Pitti Uomo that take place inside the Fortezza da Basso, organised by a selected number of brands/designers. These special events are held in strategic locations of the fair and they experiment new and surprising means of communication and self-promotion. Featured names include Matteo Lamandini.

In each collection, Matteo Lamandini tells of the importance of being able to merge things that in appearance seem not to coexist and to belong to opposite worlds. Through the concepts of game, humor and ingenuity, the designer interprets the figure of the "child", playing down some situations that characterize adult life.

The Alternative Set performance has as main actors some children who play in a different environment comparing to the one the are used to. Three children, representing three sketches of the collection, come to life in three adult performer reminding how important it is to dance, to express and to communicate the "child" hidden within each of us.
