Pitti Immagine Uomo, the premier international trade fair dedicated to menswear and contemporary lifestyles, will be held in Florence from 12 to 15 June 2018. The always-evolving event is ready to anticipate and represent the latest fashion movements via a vast range of projects. This edition boasts 1,240 brands, 561 of which hail from abroad (45%), and is a curated geography of spaces focusing on venues that emphasize research in today’s menswear and that are heavily geared towards the future of fashion.  And one must not overlook the excellence of the new classic labels and brands relaunching modern sportswear. All this is combined with the unique hospitality provided by Pitti Immagine.

Stripes move, sway and cross again and again. P.O.P Pitti Optical Power will be a visual and virtual spectacle that elicits new horizons of perception and perspectives on reality. As the Pitti Immagine shows do, innovatively, season after season. No black and white austerity in Fortezza da Basso but rather a kaleidoscope of full colour patterns to make living interiors playful and hypnotic. All this in a set design conceived and curated by life-styler Sergio Colantuoni.


F​umito Ganryu to launch the label ‘FUMITO GANRYU’ as the Designer Project at Pitti Uomo 94, joining the line-up for the upcoming fair, following the announcements of Craig Green as Menswear Guest Designer, Roberto Cavalli as Special Guest and the “FANATIC FEELINGS - FASHION PLAYS FOOTBALL” exhibition.
The Japanese fashion designer – who grew within the Comme des Garçons group – will present, on the 13th of June 2018, his eponymous and independent label at Pitti Uomo for the first time. The collection is an exploration of the ever-closer relationship between body and clothes, revealing the pure essence of Ganryu’s personal style: a new take on modern and conceptual. 

“It is an honor for me to have this wonderful opportunity to debut at Pitti Uomo,” says the designer Fumito Ganryu. “I will do my best to express my vision taking it to new directions".
