The postmodernism in its many, catchy and fresh versions under the sign of easily decodable products has been the leitmotiv of Florentine fashion tradeshow event Pitti, a celebration of semiotic from contemporary times which featured as special guests Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the creative directors of Kenzo (who contributed as fashion designers of New York brand Opening Ceremony to develop a casual-chic elegance and a laudable habit that gave rise to successful teamings with creatives as Chloe Sevigny, Yoko Ono and Delfina Delettrez).
