Pitti Uomo looks to the East. The Florentine kermesse dedicated to the men’s universe, staged from 9 to 12 January 2018, invited as guest guest designer of the 93rd edition the two designers Jun Takahashi (of Undercover) and Takahiromiyashitat The Soloist. The two Japanese creatives will be protagonists on 11 January next to the Stazione Leopolda, choosing the format of two fashion shows one after the other, dedicated to the men’s proposals for autumn-winter 2018/2019.
«It will be the first time ever that these visionary Japanese designers will give life to two consecutive shows», explains Lapo Cianchi, director of events and communication of Pitti Immagine. “A choice that symbolizes their friendship and mutual respect at the working level. The fact that Jun Takahashi, who has been at the forefront of the avant-garde fashion scene for over 25 years, considers Pitti Uomo to be the only stage in which to present his menswear makes us very happy. For TakahiroMiyashita The Soloist, on the other hand, this is a debut, which we twice expect, having always followed the fashion shows of his Number Nine brand and then because the Florentine will be the first fashion show of the brand outside the country of origin ».
