Borgioli Fratelli shoes @ Pitti Uomo.

Borgioli Fratelli was the first stand I actually stopped to check out and to take some pictures during our visit at Pitti.

In these shoes traditional constructions are combined with high-quality materials and attention to detail.  In the collection there are many eye catching details such as interchangeable buckles with matching belts, unusual shapes with unusual colors and soft oxfords made of drum-dyed calfskin, decorated with the Fratelli Borgioli fleur-de-lis in natural leather.

Mismo Bags @ Pitti Uomo.

Refined classics for a vibrant lifestyle since 2006.

The designs of the bags on one hand are pretty simple and elegant, on the other hand very functional and versatile....

LUBIAM S/S ´13 @ Pitti Uomo

Founded in 1911 by Luigi Bianchi, Lubiam (that actually stands for LUigi BIAnchi Mantova) is one one of the oldest clothing companies in Italy. The company that manufactured clothing for both men and women until the 1920s (when it decided to drop the women line) is still controlled and run by the fourth generation of the Bianchi family. As expected the Lubiam stand at this summer Pitti Uomo was absolutely one of my favorites. It was the last day we went to see it (quiet, not that much people around, so we got all the time we wanted to see through the collection) and I have to admit that I really enjoyed just to walk around the stand looking at the set...
