Il Signor Nino is the first exhibition devoted to the ideas and style of Nino Cerruti, a protagonist in the history of Italian fashion. The set-up designed by Studiopepe displays a selection of outfits taken from the personal wardrobe of Mr. Cerruti, an archive collected over fifty years and ranging from the late 1950s until today.
The display system is built through the multiplication of simple elements such as scaffolding tubes, here reassembled in a seemingly random way to form structures that rest on a mirror floor which reflects everything, clothes and sculptures altogether, breaking and multiplying space.
The fluo red lines and a number of fluorescent geometries invade the space with their graphic style, playing with the presence of Marini’s sculptures and materializing a series of outfits that outline the portrait of a style, alive and not anthological.
A construction site that represents a metaphor of those who built every day their persona through the act of dressing.
