From Australian designers making waves abroad to major street-style moments, the Pitti Uomo 92 trade show proves why it’s one of the hottest tickets on the international menswear calendar. Ahead, some of our favourite highlights direct from the streets of Florence.

Homegrown Heroes

This year’s GUEST NATION project between Fondazione Pitti Immagine Discovery and The Woolmark Company provided eight Australian designers with the platform to show at Pitti Uomo. Designer brands PE Nation, Strateas.Carlucci, Ten Pieces, Commas, Double Rainbouu, Exinfinitas and Chris Ran Lin presented their collections to a host of international menswear buyers, boosting their exposure to the global menswear market.

International guest designer J.W. Anderson presented his Spring/Summer ’18 collection, signalling a shift towards more wearable, accessible menswear. Trench coats, boxy denim and heavy knits were smattered with reworkings of the brand’s signature heart motif alongside nods to vintage Coca Cola. The best part? The collaboration with sneaker giant Converse, with the inimitable high-top undergoing a glittering transformation… Literally.

OFF-WHITE

Cult favourite OFF-WHITE put political statement at the forefront of Pitti Uomo, with designer Virgil Abloh collaborating with neo-conceptual artist Jenny Holzer on an installation highlighting the global refugee crisis. While oversized, utilitarian creations stalked down the runway, guests were exposed to text-based projections that captured the intimate viewpoints from victims of conflict and upheaval. The show proved to be poignant, thought-provoking and as timely as ever.

On the Streets

The streets were just as stylish as the showcases inside, with attendees pulling out all sartorial stops. From sharp, saturated suiting, accessories aplenty and striking the perfect balance between dapper and undone, the style set dished up serious inspiration. Thanks to the turnout at Pitti Uomo, pop-coloured blazers and vintage headwear just went straight to the top of our shopping lists.
