Highlights From Pitti Uomo SS’20

Highlights From Pitti Uomo SS’20

One can expect Pitti Uomo SS’20 to bring out the vibrancy of the dapper Italian gent! The blend of styles influenced by different fashion eras is a modern menswear statement the world needs to see, so here are some highlights we have picked out with the help of our street photographer Andrew Barber (@andrewbarber23) from OmniStyle that got heads turning while paying tribute to a historic fashion style.

The spectrum of colours Pitti presented was reminiscent of the Age of Fluro in the 1980s, where bolder was definitely better. It was a celebration of release from the oppressive 1970s, marking the beginnings of a brighter future (literally). Pitti’s hallmark vibrancy captures the spirit of the era to colourful effect, usually using contrast to achieve dressing brilliance. 

Prints, also characteristic of the 1980s, made a statement on the streets of Florence as well. The trend is allowed to simply shine or toned down with outerwear, a contemporary expression of past motifs beloved by your fathers.

The roaring Twenties — where suits defined the dress code of the era — were also spotlighted in Pitti. The men’s staple can be considered a form of street wear if styled appropriately — keeping to linen suits and summer-centric headdresses, these fashionistas on the streets transport you to a luxurious beach for some casual sun-kiss.

Of course, one can never roam the streets without spotting classic street style. Pitt had no shortage of the typical black oversized tee with a splash of graphic or logo, because even in the streets of Florence trendy hypebeasts shine.
