Team ISAIA found inspiration from Andy Warhol, specifically 70s Warhol – when the pop culture icon visited Napoli. The spring 2016 Pitti showroom featured Warhol-like paintings of Mount Vesuvius, a celebration of a time when singers like Carlos Santana and Eric Clapton excited the Neapolitan region.

Domestic and International Press Await the Final Judgment at Palazzo Vecchio

The international quotient in the competition’s panel is particular important in determining the winner of one of Italy’s most widely regarded competitions. “Pitti is becoming increasingly international as one in every two exhibitors are based outside of Italy,” says Dario Nardella, the Mayor of Florence. “This is a sign that Florence is city where fashion is relevant. Fashion is the driving force for informing an Italian contemporary lifestyle at the world level.”
