The denim-only tradeshow has announced that, in light of current developments related to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, it is canceling this season’s New York event, originally scheduled for December 6-7.
In January, the Florentine event organizer is planning to replicate the format it explored in June, hosting its two flagship trade shows, Pitti Uomo and Pitti Bimbo, simultaneously from January 11 to 13, 2022.
The fashion trade fair is making its physical comeback in NYC at the end of July, when it will welcome 67 international and domestic companies to its first in-person event since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Florentine trade fairs Uomo, Filati and Bimbo wrapped up on Friday, following what was, according to organisers, a better-than-expected run. For most exhibitors, this physical edition was all about meeting up again.
On Thursday, the South African designer, LVMH Prize winner in 2019, unveiled his first menswear collection at the Florentine show he is a special guest of, his half-ranger, half-cow-boy style both elegant and engaged.
On Wednesday, the Florentine show opened its 100th edition, hosting nearly 400 exhibitors with a cheerful mood, veined with the attending menswear professionals’ excitement at finally getting together again.
Pitti, the giant Florentine menswear salon, will host this year’s LVMH Prize finalists with a major installation in this summer’s reschedule edition, amid fresh signs of momentum at the giant trade show.
