Aims for all-round experimentation
Pitti Uomo provided all-round experimentation consolidating the new mapping that brought the big names in design and exhibition projects with a contemporary soul to the Fortezza. Pitti Immagine Uomo, the key international platform for men’s fashion collections and for launching lifestyle projects with a global reach, is a salon world that is capable of reflecting the most up-to-date fashion currents and projects with a broad appeal. At this edition there was a special focus on the athleisure phenomenon and greater emphasis is given to the sections that express today’s most contemporary and experimental menswear styles, as well as the most fashion-forward areas.

All of this together with the unique welcome provided by the Pitti Immagine fairs.
