After almost six and a half months wait it’s time again to pack the bags, jump on the plane and hit Florence for Pitti Uomo, fair number 87.
Once again I'm thrilled to see what the week will bring. Keen to see the big names such as Isaia, Tombolini and Lardini as well as the new star players Eidos and The GIGI. In addition really looking forward to see the fully new section, “Born in the USA” which will bring over 20 born-and-made in the USA brands - that never before has been presented at Pitti - to the Fortezza da Basso. Included are names such as Shinola, Frank Clegg, The Hillside, Save Khaki, Schott and Red Wing. One more event worth mention and keep an eye on is the world premiere of the film “54 hours of Rubinacci”, dedicated to the famous tailoring house Rubinacci presenting their arts and crafts when creating a bespoke suit in 54 hours.
As usual I will try to come up with quick updates showing the sneak peeks from the fair here - if not daily, at least couple of times during the week.
Also keep an eye on @tyylit.fi where I will as well try and cover some daily happenings during the week.
And finally you can keep an eye on #tyylitmaailmalla - a site that brings together pics and content from our trip - conducted in collaboration with the guys at Vaatturiliike Sauma and the blog Ohituskaistalla.
And a little glimpse & details of pieces packed for the week…
This time I will only be at the fair until Thursday. That also means that hopefully I will be able to start coming up with more detailed content featuring the collections and happenings from the week already in the end of the week.
