Pitti Uomo 96
Man and his essence, the image that represents him and his virtues find the perfect form here: this is the principle that drives and brings in the biggest and best fashion designers in the world, who are welcomed by Florence year after year in the Fortezza da Basso and throughout the city. From June 11 to June 14, 2019, this synergy between brands and buyers is back with a few new additions.
Givenchy is the Guest Designer for this edition, during which they will present their new menswear collection at Forte Belvedere (June 12, invite only). The Florentine fashion house Salvatore Ferragamo is hosting a runway show in front of Ammannati’s Fountain of Neptune in piazza della Signoria, which was recently restored thanks to the company’s priceless contribution (June 12). The Pitti Italics Special Event shines a spotlight on Marco de Vincenzo, one of the most innovative voices in the fashion scene today, who is launching his first menswear collection (June 12, invite only). Carine Roitfield presents her first CR Runway for Luisa via Roma’s grand 90th birthday party, with the highly-anticipated performance by Lenny Kravitz and a not-to-be-missed ‘90s themed runway show in Piazzale Michelangelo (June 13, invite only). At the Museum of Costume and Fashion in Palazzo Pitti, the exhibition A Short Novel on Men’s Fashion is curated by the French fashion historian Olivier Saillard (inauguration on June 11, invite only). This edition’s special guest is Sterling Ruby, the American artist known for the versatile nature of his work, which includes paintings, ceramics, collages, videos and photography (Le Pagliere, June 13, invite only).
