Pitti Uomo Street Style
Today I feel proud to be Italian. You’ve gotta give it to these born natural blooded hot headed trend setters. It’s the look that has hit the streets of Italy in a strong way this week. Wearing a beanie, especially a colourful one, on a perfectly tailored suit. It seems to be one of the biggest trends spotted at the 85th edition of Pitti Uomo.
For the few people who still are not aware of it, Pitti Immagine Uomo takes place in Firenze, my hometown, twice per year and it is the most important menswear fashion fair in the world.
Every January and June a legion of fashion bloggers, journalists and designers loaded of creativity, and a peculiar sense of style, literally invade the cradle of Italian Renaissance looking for inspiration from its art enriched surroundings on how to bring some fresh air into mens wardrobe.
Not to mention it, they always end up launching new trends that will soon spread to your city, no matter how far you live from Dante’s birthplace.
If you browse on the net the hundreds of pictures that framed the most stylish men who attended the 85th edition of the Florentine event, you will notice that the latest Pitti Uomo trend is wearing a beanie, especially a colourful one, on a perfectly tailored suit.
Yet another natural outcome of the inexhaustible technique of mixing street-wear accessories with high-end clothes, there is still plenty of room for several personal interpretations of the this trend.
In fact, while the most avant-garde dandies opted to match their dapper grey suit and navy coat with a distinctly street-wise wool blended electric blue beanie, the most traditional gents couldn’t dare that much and weren’t brave enough to give up matching their rigorously tailored suits and coats with a precious cashmere beanie of the same colour.
Like it or not, the slick Pitti crowd accomplished to transform a common sportswear garment, whose only aim was to protect your ears from the freezing cold of winter, into the sharpest and desired accessory of the season!
