JW Anderson will make its Italian debut showing the men’s collection for Spring/Summer 2018: “I’m honored to have been asked to show at Pitti Uomo,” says the designer. “Florence’s aesthetic is beautiful, which will lend itself to be the perfect backdrop for the collection.”

We have been keeping a careful eye on Jonathan Anderson’s career for several seasons,” says Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine Director of Communications and Events. “Above all, we are drawn to the creativity and eclecticism he expresses in his collections that are further enhanced by high-quality manufacturing and – in menswear — by undisputable sartorial skill. The way he reinterprets elements from the contemporary art scene and from the youth culture, alternating emotional impact (such as out-of-scale volumes) and transgression that are projected towards anticipating the future leaving little room for nostalgia, is very interesting. And his shows are always surprising, with great communicative strength.”

The Pitti Uomo 92 line-up of events will continue…stay tuned!
