Pitti Uomo 103: Menswear at the centre of it all, followed by childrenswear and more…
The famous fashion shows Pitti Immagine are returning to the city, holding the 103rd edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo, as well as the 96th one of Pitti Immagine Bimbo and the 92nd of Pitti Immagine Filati at Fortezza da Basso in Florence, from January 10th to 13th, 18th to 20th and 25th to 27th, respectively.
If you are not familiar with this event, the Pitti Immagine shows are fashion events dedicated to men, women and child clothing. Each category has a whole show organized in Florence. The first to take place this winter will be Pitti Uomo, the menswear show. For the occasion, international guests, renowned and emerging designers are invited to discover the new trends and talk about fashion.
For this edition, the main theme is ‘Pitti Way’, realised under the artistic direction of Angelo Figus. The theme interprets today’s moods and goals, making them the leitmotif of the displays at the Fortezza da Basso. This year’s shows serve as a compass for defining new directions; there will be paths, turns, U-turns, tracing non-linear itineraries that all inexorably lead one way: toward the future.
At Pitti Uomo, the show dedicated to menswear, the theme is declined in several special projects that intercept the desires that permeate contemporary everyday life. The sections, I Go Out, the dedicated to experimental outdoor wear, as well as the Fantastic Classic, Futuro Maschile, Dynamic Attitude, Superstyling and S|Style, focusing on green fashion, are back. To these two brand new areas, “PITTIPETS” and “the SIGN“, are added, which expand the exhibition spaces of the event, enriching them with new content.
The Fantastic Classic selection includes a number of influential brands that, reworking the more traditional codes of menswear, experiment with a continuous update of timeless ideas, from technical outerwear to tailored pants, from distinctive accessories to luxury knitwear. Futuro Maschile, offers a journey through the most evolved contemporary menswear, presenting an elegant-casual attitude designed to mix & match classics and sportswear. Dynamic Attitude, highlights the passion for outdoor clothing with a mix between sport and streetwear styles.Superstyling is dedicated to the search for new fashion codes that anticipate trends and lay the bases for the expression of new identities. Finally, the two new areas, “PITTIPETS” and “the SIGN“, are dedicated to the worlds of pets and design, respectively.
The special guests of this edition are: the Anglo-Jamaican-born designer Martin Rose, who will premiere his Fall-Winter 2023-24 collection, and Jan-Jan Van Essche, the Belgian designer who will bring his fluid and essential concept of fashion to Florence in a unique event on January 11.
Pitti Uomo 103 promises to be a dynamic and enriching fair, full of new ideas and bringing with it the desire to move, discover and experiment, in an increasingly interactive and international reality.
Also, not to be forgotten is Pitti Bimbo, the fair dedicated to childrenswear, which will be held from January 18 to 20, with an exhibition itinerary that moves across family lifestyle, kids’ bedrooms, toys, beauty products and publishing. Last but not least, is Pitti Immagine Filati, the key international fair for the world of yarns and knitwear, from January 25 to 27.
