After the NYFW gallery, here’s another feast of street-style photos galore from the menswear trade show Pitti Uomo in Florence. Like fashion weeks, Pitti Uomo seems like an event most menswear enthusiasts would love to attend. Stylish men from around the globe will be strolling around before the event (a feast for street-style photographers and menswear bloggers like me who just love studying them), and I think they really love sitting on that concrete fence in Fortezza da Basso – namely the “Pitti Uomo Wall” – as evidenced in the gallery below. #kidding
I love how these men dress and I admire their impeccable style, but sometimes I also find myself nodding to Ms Nessy’s amusing 12 Rules of Pitti Uomo. I mean, check point #2: “Layer yourself up until it doesn’t even make sense anymore, then layer some more.” – say wha? HAHAHAHA!
According to WWD, 38% of the fashion buyers are from the International market (as in outside of Europe), and 50% of the exports of the Italian labels are to non-European countries. The exports to China has grown 15.6% in 2013 when comparing to year 2012, followed by 14.9% growth to Korea, 7.3% growth to Hong Kong, 7% growth to Russia and 6% growth to Japan. Leather goods and traveling accessories are the fast-growing segments. In other words, can I say the menswear market in China and Korea are getting pretty influenced by Pitti Uomo style nowadays? I think that explains the very Pitti-Uomo-ish T.I. for Men from Korea.
Putting the maths aside, here are the best of Pitti Uomo street-style we love:
