Pitti Discovery Foundation for the new talents in men’s fashion

Emiliano Rinaldi New Performer uomo 2012


Emiliano Rinaldi, joint winner of the last Who Is On Next? Uomo, was the star of a performance at Yab, the historic Florentine disco-club, on Wednesday 11 January 2012.
The event was tinged with the colours of the night, generating a mood reminiscent of Studio 54 and New York Factory nights from the early eighties
. Rinaldi presented his a/w men’s collection for 2012-13, a vintage-feel wardrobe reworked in a contemporary style: wide-lapel blazers and jackets with shaped waists teamed with waistcoats, Korean-collar shirts and high-neck pullovers, checked suits alternated with suede jackets. The look was rounded out by shoes produced in collaboration with Arfango.
During the fair, Emiliano Rinaldi’s collection was presented in the Futuro Maschile section, set up in the Sala delle Nazioni at the Fortezza da Basso.
The New Performers is the Pitti Discovery Foundation project that offers new talents in men’s fashion a chance for visibility with the international buyers and press visiting Pitti Uomo.
