Pitti Uomo has been redefining and challenging its existence of late. The seasonal men's fashion fair has deviated somewhat from its sartorial, suit-and-tie formula, and has opened up to include guest designers and brands that don't necessarily delve into any form of tailoring.
This season, the 97th edition of Pitti Uomo will see Luke and Lucie Meier of Jil Sander showcasing the brand's autumn/winter 2020 menswear collection, American unisex brand TELFAR making its Pitti Uomo debut, as well as the first runway presentation of Stefano Pilati's independent Random Identities label. All three different in their own unique ways, and definitely not the typical idea of tailoring.
Yet, the street style at Pitti Uomo is still the go-to for contemporary tailoring albeit at times, mixed in with some sportswear inflections. But if fashion trends are anything to go by, you'd best pay attention to what the Pitti Peacocks are parading in this season.
