Pitti Immagine Uomo 94 (Florence, 12-15 June 2018)
Fumito Ganryu to launch the label ‘FUMITO GANRYU’ as the Designer Project at Pitti Uomo 94, joining the line-up for the upcoming fair, following the announcements of Craig Green as Menswear Guest Designer, Roberto Cavalli as Special Guest and the “FANATIC FEELINGS - FASHION PLAYS FOOTBALL” exhibition.
The Japanese fashion designer – who grew within the Comme des Garçons group – will present, on the 13th of June 2018, his eponymous and independent label at Pitti Uomo for the first time.
The collection is an exploration of the ever-closer relationship between body and clothes, revealing the pure essence of Ganryu’s personal style: a new take on modern and conceptual.
