Pitti Uomo is one of the biggest menswear trade shows in the world, being held in Florence since 1972. Every year, a guest designer is invited to show their latest collection, such as back in June, where Craig Green delivered a jaw-dropping show with a brand new Nike silhouette.
This year, Parisian label Y/Project will be presenting the Y/PROJECT FW 2019/2020 Mens collection at the show with a special event. Led by Belgian designer Glenn Martens, Y/Project is known for the experimental shapes and architectural silhouettes, notably a pair of Ugg boots, and collaborations with Diesel denim.
Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine Director of Communications and Special Events commented that "Glenn is a designer who expresses an acute sense of humor, with a vision of fashion that is extremely personal, where there is room for the freedom to dress as you like, experiment and have fun – without raising barriers of any kind.”
