WOW! I am covering my first Pitti in Milan. It lives up to its reputation as a place to go menswear fashion on a global level. On dDAy one we met designers, stylists, PR, and of course the famous Peacocks strolling around the trade fair in with all their colors.
Then of course, what is a tradeshow without the after work events, we were not disappointed. The first show was a tribute to Ciro Paone, Mr. Kiton, the luxury suit maker, The journey of the man behind the label was in 6 parts from starting with the Family to the Quality.
The setting for Kiton event was spectacular, Palazzo Gerini, A Florence Palace in the center of the city.
NEXT, We jumped in a shuttle and went to the next event for Golden Goose Sneakers. The setting had the “WOW” effect, in an abandon train station with a skateboarding venue set in the center. Slowly the lights went down, then, BOOM, Flashing Lights, Skateboarders in Gold Jackets. I am not familiar with the Golden Gooose brand but this event peaked my curiosity to learn more. We will report more in the future.
Stay tuned for more features from Florence.
