Yes, there was a lot of posing going on at Pitti Uomo in Florence and as I find myself smiling and writing, I have to say that I really enjoyed the show! I was inspired to see so many people taking pride in their appearance. At times it did seem a little theatrical in the main square but I had already decided that I would soak up all the inspirational ideas, styles, combinations and labels on show and accept the rest for what it was. Florence was buzzing! The perfect setting to showcase so many wonderful classic and contemporary brands.
The first edition of Pitti Uomo was held in Florence in September 1972. This winter (Edition no. 91) welcomed around 36.000 visitors from all over the globe. Pitti Uomo is clearly one of the most important international platform in men’s fashion, I hope to be back again!
Here, some style highlights from my trip that I would like to share.
