Have you ever been to an Italian restaurant, home or in Italy, and asked for a Peroni? Yes, me too. This year Italy celebrates 150 years of unification and to celebrate and in recognition, Peroni have collaborated with six incredibly famous and renowned Italian design houses to curate a unique exhibition of photography along side fashion commentator Colin McDowell. Armani, Dolce and Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Missoni and Prada have delved into their archives to find some of the best examples of, well, being Italian within their campaigns.
These Armani images are stunning, and recommend going to the exhibition at Somerset House, Strand, London, WC2.
A truly unique and compelling exhibition, Masters of Style: Celebrating the Stories Behind Italian Fashion commemorates the passion, flair and creativity of Italian style by bringing to life defining moments in iconic collections and campaigns. Through the personal stories, reflections and anecdotes of the Italian designers themselves, visitors are given a rare insight into the influences behind their most memorable images, celebrating their lasting and significant impact on the fashion industry and indeed, the world today.
