Pitti Uomo 91 Highlights
A lot of people in Fashion industry know about Pitti Events in general, however, there are a lot of people don’t know what Pitti events are. Up until last year, I did not know anything about Pitti Events and my dear friend Lorenzo (@thats_freak) has given me as much info as he could. He is the one who introduced Pitti to me and Huge thanks to my bro for showing me the steps Salomon Thiombiano (@ducdubois). So, let’s just get straight to point.
What is Pitti Uomo?
Pitti Uomo (Uomo – means Men) is one of the most important platforms for Men’s clothing and accessory collections in Men’s Fashion. Twice a year Fashion brands and people in Fashion industry travel to Florence to participate in the event as a clothing brand or as anyone in Fashion Industry. There are usually two events for Men, one in Winter and one in Summer. Pitti Uomo is not the only event held in Pitti Palace, there are other events which are also part of Pitti.

My Pitti Uomo 91 experience is something that I can’t describe fully in words, however, I will go for it. Without counting my traveling experience, which was something I experienced for the first time (Horrible), Pitti experience and connecting with best people in the industry was surreal. Preparation for Pitti is one the most important steps you can do. Often, I talk about preparation of the outfit day in advance is critical, however, for Pitti Preparation is something beyond that. As I was talking to people who attends the events regularly, preparation starts as little as 3 weeks and as much as 3 months in advance. This alone should give you an idea how important this event is for Men’s Fashion. Pitti Uomo 91 brought me many steps closer to my Big Dream, designing and manufacturing my own clothing line.
Now, let’s transition to my preparation, outfits, and also where you can shop my outfits. I started my preparation about 2 months before the event and my goal was to have different personalities every day. My goal was to show different personalities in my outfits, however, be the same person inside. I viewed it like a party planning and if ever planned a parties like myself, you want to make sure you have a theme. My these for Pitti Uomo 91 was crystals/stones as a detail pieces to signify clarity and great energy and then obviously thinking of my general outfits, color combinations/patterns. Let’s take a look at my clothing and where to shop for same or similar styles…
Until then see you @ Pitti Uomo 92
