Baumler UK agent Jason Gerrard: “Baumler is focussed on a classic business look and we’ve got a strong story of black and navy with plum colours with stripes and checks which is a look that the UK eye undestands. There are a lot of short jackets and skinny trousers around, but you have to think about how much of that will work in the UK. Buyers we’ve spoken to at the show are in a positive mood and seem wiling to try new things. But overall there aren’t that many new trends at Pitti Uomo which is a shame as it’s important to have something different in the collection and in store just so you can say to a buyer or shopper - this is what we have new this season.”
