A menswear season is in full swing and of course what would it be without Pitti Immagine Uomo.
Although it is well known as a trade fair, there are also fashion shows that are carefully curated under the banner of Pitti. In fact this menswear fashion extravaganza is the only one that doesn’t have “fashion week” at the end of its tittle.
Unlike other fashion weeks that take place during this season, Pitti is the only one that has higher volumes of attendees. From fashion & style enthusiasts to ordinary tourists, for both business and pleasure. It is also the biggest platform for media across the world, particularly the men behind the lenses.
In every edition of this prestigious event, there’s always a theme and boy oh boy…this was definitely one of my favourites. Adding to that, the summer editions always bring colour and this time was nothing less. This edition’s theme, Pitti-Optical-Power #ReadBetweenTheLines needed no further explanation. Of course a theme is to add a bit of flavour and not a prerequisite to follow but the Pitti people came in numbers underlining their personal style. Let’s see those that made bold statements this season:

I can go on and on, style inspiration during Pitti Uomo is a never ending story. From trend setters to the rule breakers, there’ll always be something for everyone. Congrats to Mr&Mrs Decorum and all the very best in their new journey of love in style. A special thanks to @pittimmagine for yet another educational exhibition of menswear fashion and bringing us together again. Last but not least, thank you to all the photographers that contributed to these amazing images.
Until next time, stay stylish
