This coming June (2016), with the theme P1tt1 Lucky Numb3r5, Pitti Immagine is betting on numbers: their aesthetic, graphic and symbolic qualities in fashion and beyond.
No, we will not be looking at numbers as indices of quantity but at the beauty of their lines, at whether they – the numbers – are right or wrong, exact or estimates, that we can be number one or two or zero, that there are lucky numbers and unlucky ones.
Whether we realize it or not, numbers are always in and around our lives, so in June eye-catching numbers will fill the entire Fortezza da Basso.
Pitti Immagine knows a lot about numbers and at Pitti Lucky Numbers we will tell you all about them with an ironic twist; design by Oliviero Baldini.
Breeze melody, sunken ships,
wreck endorse – quietly surviving.

Illustrator and designer Matthew Billington.
Recent years have seen the artist tend towards more a vintage quality with modern take.
This eye-catching, puzzling methodology of cutting and pasting Matthew Billington has produced a body of work that extends into the far reaches of the art and design worlds.
Kangding Ray “These Are My Rivers”, official music video by about:blank.
Now when Saum awoke he remembered his dream, and fear came upon him for his sin. And he called unto him his Mubids, and questioned them concerning the stripling of the Mount Alberz, and whether this could be indeed his son, for surely frosts and heat must long since have destroyed him.
Le bleu est la couleur des lieux extrêmes et des degrés derniers, qui sont fermés à la vie – brouillards s’évanouissant dans l’absence, pointe des glaciers, centre des flammes qui se tardent. Il se mêle aussi aux ombres, aux crépuscules, aux lignes lointaines de l’horizon. Il vient à ce qui repose et nie ce qui s’agite. La couleur bleue possède sur le cœur une influence salutaire. (Ernst Jünger, Le cœur aventureux / Das abenteuerliche Herz, 1929)
