ALBINI @ WHITE MAN & WOMAN
During the June 2017 edition of WHITE MAN & WOMAN, the exhibition “White Essentials, Style and Material of the White Shirt“ – curated by Federico Poletti – went on show in Tortona 27 Superstudio Più. An emotional and sensorial narrative path starting from the raw material, the cotton seeds, which become flowers to then turn into yarn and ultimately into fabric, thanks to the expertise of Albini Group.
The show will focus on the colour white, as this pure candid fabric represents the most difficult challenge and it allows illustrating the many facets of the colour ‘white’ that Albini can achieve. Within the exhibition, the white fabric is also the necessary ingredient that, as interpreted by the several designers involved in the project, has allowed creating items that widely differ one from another, as the creations by the designers involved in the project will demonstrate.
Each designer has interpreted some of the countless white fabrics from the collections Albini and Albini Donna, to give birth to hyper-creative and contemporary items, each with a style of its own. Among the selected brands: A-LAB Milano, Fabio Quaranta, Ports 1961, L A T by Lautaro Amadeo Tambutto, ShirtStudio di Alfredo Fabrizio e Vittorio Branchizio.
