What They Wore: Pitti Uomo

You’re sitting in the cafeteria area of the Marcato Centrale marketplace and happen to catch your reflection in the shoes worn by a man wearing a white three-piece who is scarfing down a hamburger with ketchup slushing down the sides. Showoff. Another of his kind strolls through the stalls; his brooch collection aligned on the coat breast states strictly business and the sunglasses (still perched on the nose) speak measures about his commitment to UV ray protection.

Welcome to Pitti Uomo. I quickly learned that this is a time that benefits all the Florentines through a prismatic mecca of visual stimulation. Pitti Uomo is a bi-annual tradeshow in Florence, Italy, for menswear apparel that attracts the attention of buyers internationally through an impressive roster of designer appearances, workshops (from textile to technology), and collection reveals. Most events are closed to the public, but all this hoopla drew great attention from both locals and editorials alike. I joined the crowd – in line next to several photographers whose camera lenses rivaled the span of my arm – to catch a glimpse at the ostentatious peacocking. This was my first attempt at street style photography and it’s so exciting for me to be providing the type of content that many forecasting sites provide. I loved the candid outcomes and the challenge of having to stay on my toes to catch everybody and keeping close attention to the details.

What was I most excited to see? Maximalism is on the rise.
