Finally, we arrived in Florence, after anxiously awaiting one of Europe’s biggest fashion fairs, Pitti Uomo. This year we had a bit less than compared to past years, as it overlapped with London Collections Men on one end, and Milan Fashion Week at the other end, but that didn’t stop our team from covering some major ground in a very short amount of time. We were extremely impressed with what we saw, and I start with some highlights here.

We stumbled upon this vendor after seeing some of their cool and intriguing merchandising-a jacket folded with chains around it. We became more and more intrigued as we couldn’t open up the jacket due to it being in “confinement.” As we chatted with the rep and looked around, it was clear these jackets and items were made of high quality fabrics like wool and more. BDMOTP favorites: brown jacket with green lining, blue wool jacket “chained” around itself.

Jackets and vests seemed to the be name of the game today at Pitti as we also found some gorgeous window pane, houndstooth and plaid jackets and vests. Richard Feldman is actually more well known as a shirt vendor, but we think these jackets are so amazing they give his shirts some major competition. BDMOTP favorites: plaid jackets and vests.

Pashmere

Obviously the name hints to the fact that this brand presents luxurious cashmere fabrics, which they do. But their designs are also unique with a twist. Bright colors and fun patterns give this soft fabric a bit of life. BDMOTP favorite: playing cards cashmere cardigan.
