Florence, birthplace of the house of Gucci, was abuzz for a fashion-filled week in January, with the super stylish ancient Tuscan capital hosting the highly anticipated Pitti Immaginare Uomo. It was a true Italian feast of clobber, footwear, accessories and all things utterly covetable.

The runway shows were interspersed with trade shows, with exhibitors displaying their collections across the city, and brands like Bikkembergs, Margaret Howell, Guess Jeans, Adidas, G-Star Raw and Deus Ex Machina all participated in this glamorous show of the most desirable of new fashion. Local legendary retailers like the extraordinary LuisaViaRoma with its curated selection of over 600 luxe brands (a personal Florentine go-to favourite!), Miu Miu and Pinko lit up the main shopping drag, Via Roma. Other homegrown stalwarts like Salvatore Ferragamo and Tod’s were also part of the week-long extravaganza that saw fashionistas and buyers flock to Florence to be part of the fashion frenzy.

As for trends, the ‘country gentleman’ look was perhaps the most prevalent and came in many guises: from generous-sized three-piece tweed and velvet suits to sportwear-inspired tartan and tweed lounge co-ords, houndstooth coats with oversized lapels, Barbour-style herringbone jackets and intarsia-knitted jumpers, chunky argyle scarves, gloves, bags, hats, shoes – from studded brogues to sturdy walking boots – all constituted the vocabulary of the genteel dandy at work and play.

A trend that’s been with us for many seasons now, the quirky shorts suit – often accompanied by a belted jacket and long socks, featured in many collections. Layering was huge – both as a trend and as a physical feature: shirts were hanging out from under sweaters and waistcoats were styled over shirts and underneath jackets and coats, long chunky jumpers were belted to peek out from underneath jackets. A colour palette ranging from warm brown to bison, blue to green looked autumnal and sumptuous.

Cosy up, sit back and enjoy a snapshot of what Pitti Immagine Uomo has in store for your Autumn/ Winter 2024 wardrobe!

THE DESIGNERS

TODD SNYDER

https://www.toddsnyder.com/

US designer Todd Snyder is perhaps most famous for his fabulous cashmere collections every season. This Fall/ Winter 2024 collection combines sumptuous quilting, velvet, tweed, tartan, satin and PVC with cashmere. A sportwear thread runs through the collection, giving the pieces a relaxed, luxurious look and feel. The ever-contrasting mix of fabrics – from silky satin to coarse tweed, makes for a visual and tactile feast.

SS DALEY

https://ssdaley.com/

Young British designer Stoke-Daley’s collection is a tribute to his fascination with the traditional clobber of the English aristocracy. Intarsia knits (like one featuring riders on horses) are juxtaposed with stripes, piping and quilting to give garments a luxe and decadent feel. Knitted ponchos, Anglomania stripy suits, shorts and belted coats make for a nostalgic take on the country gent look.

Luca Magliano’s collection is that perfect cocktail of rustic, traditional and comfy elements mixed with edgy 80s’ punk. His show took place at the Nelson Mandela Forum in the city, the perfect backdrop to showcase this rather dramatic collection of casual tailoring with a twist.

Jackets were knotted at the waist, casually worn over overly-long trousers, graphic T-shirts, bulky bomber jackets, toggled padded jackets and blazers were worn with fluid trousers. Jumpers had a reconstructed, vintage feel to them and fedoras resembled party hats! Grungy layering and pops of colour looked very ‘now’- and perhaps the most unforgettable feature of the collection were those punk-studded loafers!

ACHILLES ION GABRIEL

Finnish designer Achilles Ion Gabriel’s collection oozes glamorous luxe, with a touch of the avant-garde. In a restrained palette of predominantly grey, with the odd interjection of sky blue, it’s the silhouettes that do most of the talking. A permanently crumpled suit lead the way for silhouettes like the coat with its oversized shoulders, cowhide trousers, denim coat two-piece with its faux fur piping and plaid jackets. The rest is a symphony of leather, pleather and lace, studded belts and bags.

VELVET MI AMOR

A stunning installation at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence by Stefano and Corinna Chiassai features craftsmanship that’s on another level of artfulness. Smooth, inviting to the touch corduroy and velvet form the basis of many of these extraordinary pieces with their unexpected details. These textures are not restricted to clothing only, they also form the basis of hats, gloves and even shoes.
