It’s Pitti Uomo time in Florence, which means all the major international menswear editors, buyers, and retailers are gathered in Italy right now, dressed in bespoke suits, wide brim hats, and only the most manicured facial scruff. For those who don’t know, Pitti Uomo is a biannual menswear trade show where designers and labels present their upcoming collections to merchants and tastemakers, who then decide what and how much they’d like to order to then sell to the public. It’s been around since 1972, and is probably the biggest gathering of stylish men in the world.
Still, I was able to scope out some stylish women in there as well, or in the case of the first photo, a stylish man in a killer woman’s coat (by The Pack favourite, Hyein Seo). What I love about street style at Pitti Uomo is how little showgoers care about heteronormative dressing. Women come decked out in three-piece suits, while men aren’t shy about donning a skirt. Of course, there’s still lots of men in traditional double-breasted jackets and wingtips. This is Italy, after all. But don’t worry, I left those out for your convenience. 🙂
