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:
