A chronicle of people, places, happenings, and creations we admire.

Pitti Uomo 88 2015

Pitti Uomo kicks off this week with color and texture as the narrative for this summer.  Reintroduced patterns, weights and classic palettes rule the day at the what is arguably the most important platform for men's fashion and accessories. Held twice a year at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, Italy, new and established design talents exhibit and launch new projects for international buyers to peruse and hopefully select for many of the world's leading retail companies. Pitti is the most widely known segment of the Pitti Immagine collection of fashion industry events.

Issey Miyake has created a new deconstructed women's line for spring/summer.  The pieces combine traditional proportions and patterns while using a subdued palate that is laced with cutting edge production technology, textures and construction techniques.  Accessories such as the large bag and clutch have a near comic book-like color blocking style that really stands on its own.
