“Dress Artfully” tells a century of fashion and Made in Italy thanks to the style changes played by Emma Bardini, daughter of the well-known collector Stefano Bardini. Introduced by her father in the refined world of fashion, Emma represented an icon of elegance made of clothes, hats, vests and accessories of all kinds … went unfortunately lost in the time but testified by the many images and photos. And right on the rhythm of these images the collector Beatrice Albrici today presents a selection and an amazing collection of vintage clothes, unearthed during years of research in the world of the aristocracy and upper middle class Italian: 43 clothes-icons, as must haves we love to call them today, that show from the 20s to 80s, the size and the levels achieved by Italian tailoring of the ‘900, and a simultaneous jump in space and time trends of the last century. In the evocative Museo Stefano Bardini in Florence opens today (up to February 22, 2016) one of the best tributes to women and to the style that has accompanied in her transformations, witnessing the cultural and social progress, until arriving at the gates of revolution in the ’60s.
