Established in September 1972

Pitti Uomo

is a biannual, trade show event on contemporary menswear fashion.

Held in Florence, Italy

over the course of four days-

Pitti Uomo is a ‘must attend’ on the fashion circuit calendar.

 

It is a stage to present men’s clothing/accessory collections

to an anticipatory international audience

of industry professionals and aficionados.

 

Yet, as expected-

the on – runway events for this year’s  menswear,   s / s  2016  presentations

(16 – 19 June 2015)

were rivalled by the off – runway fashion parade of

street style sass sartorial statements.

(Now saw that five times without becoming tongue tied!)

Summer suiting seemed the definitive dress directive-

the look elevated by eye-catching accessories:

 

pocket kerchiefs and scarves of prints / colours

smart footwear

weaved straw hats

stacked bracelets

small clutches and oversized carriers

swank sunnies

 

all wonderfully enhanced by the essential element of

sprezzatura

the Italian dress sense of

effortless, elegant, confidant style .
