On a beautiful sunny day that makes the Fortezza da Basso even more shiny, ending the 89th edition of Pitti with his busy schedule and exciting. This year many stands and foreign visitors to witness how the event is increasingly becoming an international event for fashion and for operators around the world.
In this context, however, we like to spend a few more minutes to the Make section dedicated to craftsmanship in the round. A crowded part of tailoring items or handmade, luxury products and objects nowhere to be found: the bow tie of feathers to frack satin shoes by hand made to the twins custom, through hoods man-style ‘800, Make is the paradise for dandy and stylish. Here too, companies from various countries live together, but the Made in Italy certainly does his part and shows one of his best parts. Cappellificio biellese, F.H. Gulf italia, Fumagalli 1891 are just a few examples with decades of experience and almost family: ready, meter and needle in hand, to take the measures and propose items personalized and customized.
One of these to close with a fun game of colors and fabrics: the company Zabattigli, realizing in Capri the famous shoes made rope, cult object of worldly summers of Naples. Manufactured and shipped worldwide to actors and celebrities, Zabattigli produces high quality articles proposing together with the classic collection models in fabrics and from the most varied fantasies. Particular to the last launch vintage: shoes made of velvet 70s traced in an old tailor’s Capri … an article for a few men from style to Dorian Gray. We feel like summer and sea … but June and the next edition of Pitti are not that far.
Pitti Immagine invades every year the city of Florence in its two editions (January and June) as a hurricane of freshness, color and timeliness. On these occasions, the city of Florence is transformed into a modern city and with the style of the great European capitals: in the streets celebrities or strangers with daring styles and refined, events on each local, theater, store. The risk is to make an overdose of fashion within a few hours, for this the approach, for those staying more than one day, it should be to visit the pavilion to pavilion with a bit of calm and make a distinction between all proposals of the companies present. In fact, compared to of so many famous names from the world of fashion, Pitti is also discovering, craftsmanship and Made in Italy.
We are ready for Pitti Uomo 89, edition really interesting with 1,219 brands of menswear industry presenting their collections for the winter 2016-2017 from today until Friday in Fortezza da Basso. Inaugurated this morning at Palazzo Vecchio is the fashion fair that, as usual, turns and crowded day and night the city with a program of events involving shops, buildings, historic sites, clubs, museums, theaters, for a nightlife trendy tight.
Entering into beautiful Florentine Fortezza da Basso you immediately understand the leitmotif of this edition: large images by Oliviero Baldini these show faces and bodies of men, children, old people, without exception, where disappear differences in age and generations coexist simultaneously. Through Pitti Generation (s) then a dominant trend ends and makes room for combinations in favor of that fashion is increasingly genderless. So classic and modern, casual and underground, tradition and innovation are associated in a dystonia that becomes normal.
Exactly on the day when the whole world salutes the White Duke David Bowie, the myth of discontinuity, change artist in every sense, the precursor of a mood that goes beyond sexuality and gender, Pitti Uomo 89 posing with his stands trends of future seasons but especially launches a visionary message to overcome differences and promote the fluidity of gender, age and style.
