An evening in Florence with Grace Wales Bonner
Harry’s Bar Firenze
On Tuesday, June 14th, 2022 at Pitti Uomo N°102 in Florence, A Magazine Curated By and MATCHESFASHION hosted an aperitivo and seated dinner at Harry’s Bar Firenze in honour of A#22 curator Grace Wales Bonner, celebrating the WALES BONNER Spring 2023 collection ‘Horizon Blues’.
At the WALES BONNER show prior, a monumental installation by the Ghanaian artist Ibrahim Mahama transformed the Palazzo Riccardo Medici with an intervention covering the architectural space with jute sacks hand stitched together by local collaborators, revealing instances of exchange while leaving behind material traces and intertwined histories for future generations.
Guests dined on a traditional Florentine menu and received A Magazine Curated By Grace Wales Bonner adorned with sodalite: a crystal known for promoting calm, emotional balance and rational thought.
