THE FASHIONISTA: PITTI UOMO '93

Pitti Uomo (in English, "Pitti Men"), is one of the world’s most important platforms for men’s clothing and accessory collections, and for launching new projects in men’s fashion. It's held twice yearly in Florence- Italy. 

It's a four-day market-facing event in which retailers, buyers, and editors come together to view upcoming collections. Its not like any other fashion events, trade show. Every attendee is dressed up head to toe in their best suit to attend Pitti Uomo. 

One of the highlights would be the partnership of Brooks Brothers 200th Anniversary with Pitti Uomo. 

But first, lets take a look at the what the people are wearing in this year's Pitti Uomo.

BROOKS BROTHERS CELEBRATES 200TH ANNIVERSARY IN PARTNERSHIP WITH PITTI IMMAGINE UOMO

 

UNDERCOVER: FALL 2018

Undercover’s Jun Takahashi opened a dual runway show that he shared with Takahiromiyashita The Soloist by presenting a collection that highlighted the impact of science and technology on life today.

Its quirky and thought provoking- stepping out of the tailoring rules and limitations and towards more of a Japanese designing approach. 



All and all these pictures are just the tip of the ice berg of how Pitti Uomo is about. Its a wonderful tradition and gathering of fashion enthusiasts that feel the same way about fashion. If you plan to visit Pitti Uomo in the next Pitti Uomo 94, be sure to bring in your best suit along and you might just be photographed on the street as the next fashionista.

With that, I end with a quote:
