Best of Pitti Uomo 89

Posted by Atte Rytkönen on 4.2.2016 in General

For Thursday throwback and some inspiration I decided to pick few shots featuring outfits I personally wanted to highlight as “best of Pitti Uomo”. One noteworthy thing regarding the fair this year was the fact that the amount of photographers was smaller than during previous seasons. Or at least I dare to claim so. This was also evident in such a way that it was hard to find pictures from the day during the week Pitti Uomo was held. Normally the first sets of photos have been around already on the first night of the fair. Luckily it seems however that after the fair pics from Florence have started to appear from various sources.

Karl-Edwin Guerre is not just one of the most talented photographers in the industry but also known for his personal style.

Another thing worth of mention was the popularity of street wear that is also present in pictures one can find online. As Hypebeast wrote in the article “Pitti Uomo 89: The season Florence went streetwear” this time Florence really was not just about tweeds, brogues and Italian elegance but more and more about denim, sneakers, hoodies and sweatpants. It remains to be seen if this is the way the fair will develop in the future. I personally think that there is room for both – classic tailoring and modern street wear.

But this time I will leave those more fashion-forward ensembles and street style-attires to someone else to judge. Instead I have picked some of my personal favorites representing outfits and style I personally appreciated and that was seen in Florence. And as you know – pictures tell more than words. So let’s go straight to the pics and highlight some “DLA-approved” outfits.

Pitti Uomo’s Best-Dressed Men by Esquire

No street style to be exact but definitely one of the most interesting projects regarding best-dressed men in Pitti Uomo was brought up by Esquire. The gallery consists of 34 portraits taken in studio in Florence during Pitti Uomo. In these pictures it is clearly shown that rather than being a peacock and wearing multiple colors and bold combinations, you can express style and personality through sober and prudent, simple choices.
