Within the framework of the Florentine exhibition of men's fashion Pitti Uomo, in addition to a huge number of new collections of brands from all over the world, many important events take place every time - exhibitions, shows and presentations. We recently wrote about the first part of the program, and now the details of another one have become known.
“Due o tre cose che so di Ciro”

"Due o tre cose che so di Ciro" ("Two or three things I know about Ciro") - the exhibition under this title will open at Fortezza da Basso on 10 January. It is dedicated to Chiro Paone, the founder of Kiton and one of the main characters in the global fashion scene. The success story of the fifth generation Italian entrepreneur and trader of costume fabrics began in 1956 in Naples and conquered the world. “His work is the best example of contemporary tailoring,” says Raffaello Napoleone, head of Pitti Immagine. Through his efforts, Kiton's handcrafted standards are now applied to all wardrobe items, from classic suits and shirts to sportswear and shoes.

Company Zegna presents a line of the Z Zegna, again the performance of the new creative director Alessandro Sartori (designer responsible for her a few years ago to care Berluti). “On the one hand, Zegna is considered the leader in the Made in Italy segment, on the other hand, Alessandro Sartori is one of the most original fashion designers of our time,” said Raffaello Napoleone, CEO of Pitti Immagine. The exhibition will also feature a new technological project of the Techmerino brand.
Tommy Hilfiger is coming to Pitti Uomo for the first time. The American designer will bring selected looks from the fall-winter 2017 collection to Florence. An incredible installation with digital effects will be installed in Sala Ottagonale.>
