Pitti Uomo may have started as a trade show, but in recent seasons, has turned into a fashion extravaganza akin to fashion week, with more and more designers presented menswear collections and impeccably dressed show goers, redefining the meaning of street style. Here’s what we learnt from the streets of Pitti Uomo 92.

A PRINT AFFAIR

No matter the season, printed fabrication is always a good idea. Show goers at this season’s Pitti Uomo proved that print is the way to go with African inspired prints coming to the fore as a firm favourite among the best dressed, including SA’s very own Kwena Baloyi and Trevor Stuurman. 


BOLD COLOUR

Pops of bold, attention grabbing colour, we another sure fire way to make a statement among the stylish. Bold blues and magenta pinks and citrus orange, are this season’s must try colours, for sartorial impact.


NEUTRALS

The melting pot of Pitti Uomo style, not only featured the colourful and printed, but also illuminated the stylishness of classic neutrals. Show goers proved tonal dressing can be so easy with smart combinations of cream, beige, tan and white suiting.

THE DOUBLE BREASTED EFFECT

The double breasted button down is a classic. The stylish men and women at Pitti Uomo attested to the relevance of a traditional double breasted jacket and waistcoat, reworked in contemporary colours and patterns.


HIS & HERS

In recent runway seasons, the line between menswear and womenswear has increasingly blurred. At street level, gender rules need not apply with, with men and women alike, donning impeccably tailored suiting and bold colour.
