Kilgour designer to showcase at Pitti Uomo

Carlo Brandelli, the designer and creative director of Savile Row tailor Kilgour, has been invited to take part in the 88th edition of Pitti Uomo in Florence on June 16-19.

The English-born former British Fashion Council menswear designer of the year will be spotlighted as part of Pitti’s Designer Project.

This season’s guest menswear designer will be Moschino, marking the brand’s first menswear runway show in Italy since Jeremy Scott took over as creative director in October 2013.

London-based Canadian fashion designer Thomas Tait will be the guest womenswear designer. Tait, 27, graduated from Central Saint Martins and won the LVMH prize for designers under 40 in 2014.

An exhibition in tribute to Italian businessman and stylist Nino Cerruti is also being curated by Cerruti and Italian fashion journalist Angelo Flaccavento, in association with The Fondazione Pitti Discovery.

A record 35,000 people attended the last edition of the four-day menswear trade show in January, up 15% from 20,800 the previous year.
