We recently featured the images from Menswear For Women collection by p and coming designer Barbara Casasola. Today we have a closer look of the collection through the beautifully set presentation, Barbara showcased the new designer as a special guest designer at the Pitti Uomo. The presentation was created in collaboration with the famed London based ShowStudio.

A site specific modernist installation is set against the historical architecture of the derelict Palazzo Portinari-Salviati. A series of four rooms connects two tableaux vivants. These settings are fragments of a domestic environment that serve as the backdrop for a series of intimate and mundane activities of the Casasola woman in situ. A series of 12 projections is spread throughout the space. These are produced in collaboration with Showstudio and feature Casasola muse Jamie Bochert. The short, disconnected sequences give the appearance of screen tests for a movie never made. With a focus on moments of intimacy, we are introduced to a spirit and attitude of the Casasola woman. – from Barbara Casasola
