One of the most highly regarded international mens fashion events, the Pitti Immagine Uomo is an international fashion fair presenting menswear, accessories, and the launch of new mens fashion projects. This year Milan-based luxury fashion house Jil Sander has been selected as guest designer at the Pitti Immagine Uomo 97, and creative directors Lucie and Luke Meier will present their new menswear collection at a special event in Florence. The co-creative directors, who were appointed in 2017 succeeding Rodolfo Paglialunga, have noted that showing in Florence is both an honour, and a completion for the duo having first met in the Italian city.
Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine director of communications and events said: 'We have been following with great interest the work of Lucie and Luke Meier at Jil Sander. A very precise vision of fashion, where there is clearly a constant search for equilibrium between the respect for minimalist codes - which made the history of the brand - and the desire to incite emotion, combined with great attention to details.’
Presentation date TBA in November.
Pitti Immagine Uomo runs at Fortezza da Basso, Viale Filippo Strozzi 1, Florence, from 7 - 10 January 2020.
