THURSDAY 18 JUNE
11:00 a.m. Main Pavilion Forecourt
At Pitti Uomo 88, Mauna Kea will be presenting the new 2016 S/S collection characterized by precious stone and floral prints. Ever since the brand was founded, it has been characterized by a free spirit that never forgets its “marine” origins, an eye on what’s happening now, skilful work on fabrics and utmost attention to research on graphics and textures – all part of the brand’s DNA. Put all this together – and that’s the idea for the Mauna Kea Alternative Set. In the middle of the forecourt, a maxi-size block of stacked textured paper with the new Mauna Kea prints will be the base for huge origami figures – some of which will be folded on the spot – that will come to life in an interactive dialogue with the clothes on display. Camouflage components will make the whole operation a thing of joy, like a trompe l’œil so that the set will come to life like a real shoot in progress.
