Legendary Japanese labels UNDERCOVER and TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloIst. (mouthful or what? you can just say “SoloIst”) have just announced via their respective Instagram pages that they’ll be showing at the FW18 installment of Pitti Uomo. Previous guests at Pitti have included J.W.Anderson, Off-White, Gosha Rubchinskiy and Raf Simons, but Pitti’s 93rd event will give fashion insiders the chance to catch a rare glimpse at some of Japan’s best — and most elusive — labels.

Pitti Uomo is a vast menswear trade show held in Florence every season. For each installment, the organizers invite some high-profile designers into the mix, and the fare overall has become renowned for its next-level street style antics.

The labels will be showing on January 11th, 2018, at a yet-to-be-announced venue in Florence.

Check out UNDERCOVER and SoloIst‘s recent shows from Tokyo Fashion Week while you’re at it.
