Menswear fashion and design has accelerated to warp speed dimension-

and the energy is electric.


Menswear trends are no longer, as time of old,

limited to the mundane and expected:

adjusting lapel silhouettes, trouser hems or tie widths.

Today, menswear designs are inspirited with inventive perspectives,

avant garde concepts and boundary explosions of gender non-specific attire.

Nowhere is this more in evidence than during Pitti Uomo (Florence, Italy):

the menswear fashion event of galactic scope.


Pitti Uomo runway presentations for Fall 2015 are now underway,

to conclude this Tuesday, 20 January.

The designs have not disappointed: inspired and inspirational.

Menswear design have jetted onward into a new frontier

with enthusiasm and with enthused response.

Gents, these are exciting times!

Consider a few highlights from the Pitti Uomo runway shows for style ideas:
