Florence, Pitti Uomo 106

Pitti Uomo Style Report

 

Sprezzatura is an Italian term that embodies a cultivated nonchalance, where one achieves a certain effortless elegance and understated sophistication Carrying oneself with a relaxed and unforced grace.. Originating from the Renaissance, it was first articulated by Baldassare Castiglione in his 1528 book “The Book of the Courtier.”

This is the word possibly describes the vibe at Pitti Uomo the best. Pitti Uomo is one of the most prominent and influential menswear trade shows in the world. Held biannually in Florence, Italy, Pitti Uomo showcases the latest trends, styles, and innovations in men’s fashion, attracting designers, brands, buyers, and fashion enthusiasts from around the globe.

Pitti Uomo is known for setting trends in menswear, with many styles and innovations debuting at the event before gaining global popularity as well as for its street style, where attendees showcase their personal fashion flair, often setting new trends and inspiring fashion enthusiasts worldwide.

This year like many other, the Mond team travelled to Florence and once again we bring you a travel diary and a style inspiration guide where we will share stylish ladies and gentlemen we met at the fair or at one of the many events during the Pitti Uomo week.

Here are the notable trends we spotted.

Relaxed summer styling

Comfort and ease are key this season, with suits featuring more relaxed fits. This trend emphasizes laid-back elegance, moving away from overly structured silhouettes to more fluid forms that allow for movement and comfort.

Mastering the art of layering is also a prominent trend at Pitti Uomo, with suits being combined with various layers such as knitwear, camp collar shirts, and neckerchiefs. This approach is fun to experiment with, adding a relaxed, casual elegance and encouraging the mixing of different textures and colors.

Adding to the overall relaxed look were unbuttoned shirts, often left open to the third button, enhancing the Italian sprezzatura vibe.

  • Light Pink Striped American Oxford
    156,51 

    Introducing a fresh addition to our American Oxford Shirt collection: a delightful light pink, perfect for the spring and summer seasons.
    The American Oxford weave is a traditional method of weaving cotton fabric that originated in the United States. It is characterized by a slightly heavier and more textured construction compared to other types of oxford weaves, such as the classic Oxford or the Royal Oxford.
    American Oxford fabric typically has a rougher, matte appearance with a distinct basket-like texture. This type of weave is known for its durability and casual aesthetic, making it popular for casual shirts, including button-down shirts. The fabric is breathable and comfortable, ideal for everyday wear.
    The fabric is from the Canclini mill in Italy, known for producing premium cotton fabrics favored by many high-end clothing brands and renowned for their superior quality, softness, and durability.

Lots of linen

Keeping with the theme of comfort during the summer, linen suits were once again a popular choice this year, emphasizing the fabric’s breathability and lightweight nature. The trend of using linen extends from traditional suits and shirts to casual suiting options such as safari jackets and drawstring trousers, aligning with the move towards more relaxed and comfortable styles for summer.

Linen’s textured appearance also adds a layer of sophistication and character to any outfit, making it suitable for both formal and casual settings. This adaptability was evident at Pitti Uomo, where many attendees showcased how linen could be effortlessly integrated into both classic and casual looks. The popularity of linen this season underscores a growing preference for practicality without sacrificing style, catering to the needs of the contemporary gentleman who values comfort as much as elegance.

 

  • navy irish linen suit
    786,77 

    This Navy Twill Linen suit is certainly our most Scandinavian version of the linen suit. Navy is one of the most underrated colours when it comes to linen suits, as showcased here. It pairs well with just about anything and is very comfortable to wear during the warmer months. The Linen suit shown in the pictures is made in a casual cut, however the suit would work just as well with roped shoulders.
    Linen is a fabric for the summer, it will wrinkle beautifully as plant fibres should. The fabric weighs 320 g/m2 which is light enough to allow air to circulate without being so thin that it becomes see-through. The Twill weave gives the fabric, and the suit, a firmer and more lavish structure than what is typical for suits made from Linen.
    As said, navy is probably the least common colour for a linen suit, although the combination works well. The suit has the versatility of a navy suit and the comfort and charm of a linen suit. Design-wise we recommend keeping it rather plain with this fabric, for those who want more details, pleats and cuffs would make great additions as they’re informal. This is one of the easiest suits to style that we present in our selection. The only rule of thumb is that whenever wearing the jacket and trousers together, make sure that the shirt is in a less coarse fabric. When it comes to shoes everything goes; black, brown, beige or sneaker all work with the suit. A tie is in no way a must, but consider wearing this jacket with a pocket square; breaking up the color with something lighter emphasises the dark cloth nicely.
    The fabric comes from the Baird McNutt mill in Ireland. It is a family business that thrives in the harsh Irish weather and specialises in the production of linen fabrics. The fabrics are woven using traditional methods, and have a low environmental impact, due to sustainable farming practices. To learn more about the mill please visit their website.

    This Khaki Twill Linen Suit is very classical take on a suit in tropical fashion. The light color does a wonderful job at showcasing the airy cloth, and thus the suit is one of the most leisurely designs we provide. The style we've presented here is casual, emphasising the less formal characteristics of the linen, but you could also contrast the informal color and make the suit with roped shoulders.

    It is the perfect suit for being outside in the sun this summer, and can be styled in a variety of ways. Especially because the suit in itself is so informal it lends itself beautifully to be styled up a bit, where it with a crisp white shirt and a selection of your favorite accessories like a subtly patterned midnight blue tie, black sunglasses and maybe even a black pocket square if your feeling bold. Otherwise you can double down on the informality of the garment and combine it with a t-shirt and boating shoe like Sebago’s. Like most rather informal suits this khaki linen suit lends itself to be worn as separats.

Another notable trend we spotted at Pitti Uomo were denim shirts.

Neutral colors

Shades of Brown:

There is no surprise here. Every summer we always see a lot of neutral and earthy tones like beige, camel, brown etc. These colors are a summer staple and they offer versatility and understated elegance. This year it seems like brown made a big comeback to the streets of Florence with a lot of gentlemen going for different shades of brown, from warmer to cooler and deeper shades in fabrics like linen primarily, light frescos or solaro.

White:

Another classic choice for summer, offering a crisp and timeless look, is white. At Pitti Uomo, we saw many gentlemen sporting white suits or white dinner jackets, adding a fresh and sophisticated touch to their outfits. These neutral colors not only provide a solid foundation for any wardrobe but also allow for easy mixing and matching, making them ideal for creating a variety of stylish and elegant summer looks.

Pops of color

Blues and Greens: Various shades of blue and green were popular. The classic navy blue in the form of blazers matched with white trousers was seen, as well as brighter blues and lighter pastels.  One of the more popular variations of green was khaki. Soft and wearable, it adds color yet it remains quite subdued.

Pastels: Pastel shades, including light pinks and soft yellows, made an appearance, bringing a light and airy feel suitable for the warmer months. Bright pops of color were also seen in suiting, shirts, and accessories, adding a touch of playfulness perfect for more casual or semi-formal settings.

Warm Rusty Browns and Oranges: These colors added depth and richness to the summer palette, offering a warm and inviting alternative to more conventional summer hues.

Separates

At Pitti Uomo 106, separates were a standout trend, with many attendees embracing mixing and matching different pieces from their wardrobes. A classic choice for summer separates is definitely white or light-colored trousers. They provide a great foundation, making it easy to match with a variety of jackets. Separates are also a great way to break up suits and style them in new outfits. This approach not only highlights individual style but also promotes practicality and flexibility, allowing for a variety of outfit combinations.

These patterns added a dynamic and visually striking element to classic suiting, allowing for greater expression of personal style.
