Italians Do It Best

The italians have style. Whether it’s because of the hot weather, the siestas or even the abundance of delicious food, they’ve got it. Cool to the extreme, painfully stylish and confident – they own it all.

It is no wonder why, then, that many-a-fashion house has been born and nurtured in Italy, resulting in the take over of the rest of the fashion world. Exhibition Masters of Style: Celebrating the Stories behind Italian Fashion at Somerset house has encapsulated all the most influential Italian haute houses; Gucci, Missoni, Armani, Dolce and Gabbana, Ferragamo and Prada (to name all six that feature) through images. With all houses having personally hand-picked images from their collections, advertisements and photo-shoots, they are going on a journey looking back through their image archives. Masters of Style is on a mission to breath life back into these iconic fashion moments, bringing an insight into the influences and evident passion behind their most iconic work.

     

This exhibition coincides with the 150th anniversary Italy’s unification in the whirlwind that is the fashion industry. Curated by Peroni Nastro Azzurro in partnership with esteemed fashion commentator and Daddy Fashion himself, Colin McDowell.
