Pitti Uomo show report

Buyers on the trail of spanking new trends should have packed magnifying glasses and deerstalkers; so elusive were they among the cache of autumn 08 menswear at Pitti Uomo.

An umbrella would have helped too in the drizzle drenched city where the dark skies were mirrored in the Fortezza da Basso’s tailoring halls by a barrage of grey. Reflecting a near certain mood of buying caution there were few risk takers in the premium menswear supply camp. Instead the emphasis was on luxury and subtle detailing with regular flashes of colour.

Purple dominated as autumn’s preferred highlight shade appearing largely on knits and shirts with a few brave brands introducing it subtly into tailoring.
