Transitioning from the rougher street looks of London fashion week – where the clashing of a leopard supreme bucket hats, purple hoodie and the latest pair of Nikes dominated the street – to the picturesque backdrop of Florence where the mecca of tailoring softened street style looks, it was this week’s Pitti Uomo 96 that provided sartorial classics.
Running in line with Men’s Fashion Month, the summer heat brought out a slew of neatly tailored linen and camp collar shirts for the bi-annual menswear event. Across four days, the exhibition was the location for Spring/Summer 2020 runway presentations from the likes of Clare Waight Keller’s Givenchy, Sterling Ruby, and MSGM’s Massimo Giorgetti. In turn, the guest list teemed with celebrity buyers, editors and influencers and each look lived up to it’s wearers name.
From on the ground at Pitti Uomo 96 in Florence, here are the 10 best street style looks.
