Pitti Uomo (in English, “Pitti Men”), is one of the world’s most important platforms for men’s clothing and accessory collections, and for launching new projects in men’s fashion. It’s held twice yearly in Florence, at the Fortezza da Basso.
The first edition of Pitti Uomo was held in Florence in September 1972. The exhibition provided a platform for raising the profile of Italian designers and now has achieved international stature as a leading fashion fair. Pitti Uomo is credited with making dandyism acceptable to a wider audience. The 88th edition of Pitti Uomo (Pitti 88) in June 2015 hosted 30,000 visitors in total. The Pitti Immagine Uomo 2015 Award went to Lardini, and the Pitti Immagine Career Award was awarded to Nino Cerruti. Pitti Uomo 90 was held in Florence 14–17 June 2016.
The next event is Pitti Uomo 91 | 10-13 jan 2017 in Florence again this coming winter.
