Pitti Uomo: 94th edition

This week the fashion world gathered in sunny Florence for the spring/summer 2019 edition of Pitti Uomo, the fêted menswear tradeshow. Things were a little different this time at the Fortezza da Basso. For one, where were all the Pitti Peacocks? These Italian men, who famously come dressed to the nines (in three-piece suits, top hats and the rest) and spend their days posing, were far less omnipresent than in previous seasons. Many attribute this to the fact that these dandies have finally embraced streetwear (that most ubiquitous of phenomena) and so were wearing trainers and hoodies, much like everyone else. There were other shifts, including a Scandinavian section and a stellar new hall (“I Go Out”) dedicated to outdoor gear. We scoured the stands and perused the 11 pavilions of the Fortezza in search of our new-season picks so you can start planning for your next summer jaunt.
