During the upcoming Milan Men’s Fashion Week shows, a thrilling new exhibition is coming to the Giorgio Armani/Silos Milano space. From January 12 to March 24, visitors can view the Charles Fréger exhibit, “Fabula,” featuring over 250 images by the French photographer.
“The vitality of color is what caught my eye first, drawing my attention to the work of Charles Fréger. That color, however, is no mere visual feat. It is a depiction of human energy,” Armani shared, via WWD. “As a fashion designer, I know clothing is charged with a great symbolic meaning. Fréger constantly reminds us of that, scavenging the deepest aspects of dressing up as a way of communicating. I am very happy to host such an exhibition at Armani/Silos.”
Fréger is similarly excited about showcasing in this Milan space.
“Exhibiting at the Armani/Silos is a chance to introduce my photographic series since 2000 in a very inspiring space,” he shared with the publication. “It feels like visualizing the works chapter by chapter, as if the sublime architecture of the Silos was giving the rhythm to the photographic exhibition. There’s a sensation of time and evolution, a conversation with the rooms, the gray concrete walls and the precise lighting giving the best possible echo to the color of my photographs.”
