Eton of Sweden - Pitti Uomo 87

Swedish shirt maker Eton is not just one the multiple different shirt makers any more. Last year they launched the most interesting collaboration - when it comes to #menswear - with Eidos Napoli and season after season they seem to step up their game not just in terms of shirts but with the range of accessories and overall look and feeling of the brand as well. But well, when a brand has a guy like Sebastian Dollinger as their head of design - what else can one expect.

Drakes London - Pitti Uomo 87

Next in line for the short reviews from Pitti Uomo  presenting the fall and winter 2015 collections is Drake's London.The overall theme and inspiration for the collection seems to arise from this idea of “rugged and rumbled elegance” where soft materials and delicate fabrics are combined with casual elements and textures.In terms of ties the collection features a few new materials such as hand printed buff madders, printed satins and woven shetlands.

The GIGI fall and winter 2015 - Pitti Uomo 87

Italian The Gigi presented at Pitti Uomo now their third full collection. With an aim to experiment and to create new innovations in terms of materials, processing techniques and finishes the collection continues to renew the view and understanding of classic #menswear. In general it could be said there was not much new or revolutionary presented during the fair in Florence - which for anyone - like me - who values simplicity and minimalism is pretty much a good thing. That said the approach by The Gigi and the way of thinking by Boglioli brothers Mario and Pierluigi that clearly differs from many classic #menswear brands and takes us away from the comfort zone - while still paying attention to the quality -...
