My Journey To Firenze – Pitti Uomo 89

For the 89th time, every fashion addicted gentleman went to Firenze to attend one of the biggest men’s exhibitions in the world. Two times per year, Florence turns into a fashion-mecca on the level of absolute superlative.

For me it was the first time to attend a fair and visit such an event. Arriving at the airport you already start to understand how big this event is. People are travelling to Firenze from all over the world. The queue to get a Taxi at the airport is at least 50 meters long.
There are two parts of the fair. On the one hand a lot of brands are exhibiting their newest collections. On the other hand there is the ‘show off’ part in front of the building people are hanging out to present their styles.
It’s unbelievable what a good time I had with my friend Kenneth. The sun was out, everyone in a good mood! I enjoyed the relaxed vibe at the Pitti Immagine. Everyone is totally laid back. I ate loads of ‘Bistecca Fiorentina’ and met wonderful and well dressed people from all over the world.
What a surprise to open the news at the next day! 
Suddenly we started to realise that our pictures are everywhere (GQ Russia, GQ Germany, GQ Mexico & Vogue Mexico)

So what’s trending?
Beards & Moustaches
I have the personal impression that beards and moustaches are still totally in fashion. The coming pictures will prove that.
They are all over the place. In all sort of colours, shapes and forms. I’d love to see more of them here in Switzerland!
Rather coats than jackets was the main trend this time. A very dapper and classy idea for next winter.
Checked & squared pattern is a nice alternate to just black or grey.
Shoes & Socks

Be brave and use colours! Pastel colours during autumn & winter.
