Pitti Immagine is a collection of fashion industry events in Italy.
Pitti Immagine Uomo: men’s fashion collections. In Florence, at the Fortezza da Basso, twice a year. Private sector operators. Arguably Pitti Uomo is the world’s most important platform for men’s clothing and accessory collections and for launching new projects in men’s fashion. The first edition of Pitti Uomo featuring men’s fashion and accessories was held in Florence September 1972. The exhibition provided a platform for raising the profile of Italian designers and now has quickly achieved international stature as a leading fashion fair. Pitti Uomo is credited with making dandyism acceptable to a wider audience
Following our trip to the English capital for London Collections: Men, we head on down to Italy for this season’s iteration of Pitti Uomo. Billed as the key international trade event showcasing men’s fashions and contemporary lifestyle trends, Pitti Uomo 86 takes place this year in Florence from June 17 to June 20. Included among this season’s presentation are makers of the new classics with the high quality of their exclusive products, to cutting edge accessories that are playing an evermore important role on the market, all the way up to the brands that have redefined sportswear. With an ever-stronger focus on internationality, opening day at Pitti Uomo 86 saw a more classic and tailored approach amongst attendees while more streetwear-oriented looks can be expected in the coming days.
