Having worked previously under Rei Kawakubo’s COMME des GARÇONS line, esteemed Japanese designer Fumito Ganryu is back with the upcoming launch of his new eponymous label.

Scheduled to debut at Florence’s iconic menswear trade show Pitti Uomo 94 in June, Ganryu’s collection is being billed as an exploration of the relationship between body and clothes, revealing the essence of the designer’s personal style, as well as a new interpretation of modern and conceptual aesthetics.

In addition to debuting the Fumito Ganryu label, Pitti Uomo will also feature Craig Green as menswear guest designer, special guest Roberto Cavalli, and the “Fanatic Feelings — Fashion Plays Football” exhibition, curated by contemporary art critic Francesco Bonami, and Markus Ebner, founder of German fashion magazines Achtung and Sepp Football Fashion.

Now, read why Ganryu was COMME des GARÇONS’ most underrated brand.
