This year’s theme, PITTI _ ISLAND, encouraged a confluence of ideas, discussions, and collaborations between brands and buyers. A total of 671 men’s street style brands (40% of which are international) showcased their latest collections inspired by five menswear trends—Fantastic Classic, Futuro Maschile, Dynamic Attitude, Superstyling, and S|Style sustainable style—to buyers and retailers from leading department stores and boutiques.
The expanded itinerary included a guest designer, Grace Wales Bonner, who premiered her spring/summer 2023 collection with a catwalk show. There was a guest of honor, Ann Demeulemeester, who curated a special project highlighting her iconic style. The spotlight shone on Ukrainian designers like Bobkova and Gudu who presented their modern take on men’s fashion.
