French footwear designer Christian Louboutin will host a special event during the 92nd edition of menswear trade show Pitti Uomo in June.
The project will involve eight teams from four corners of the globe competing in a sporting event held in the centre of Florence on June 13. Visitors to Pitti can watch the tournament and participate in a series of masterclasses, led by the sportsmen. The exact nature of the sport involved has not yet been confirmed.
”Florence to me has always been a city of leisure,” said Louboutin. “For the first time, I am happy to mix leisure and the pleasure of my work there.”
