Tepidarium del Roster

Marco De Vincenzo returns to Pitti Uomo as the Pitti Italics Special Event for this edition (June 11-14, 2019). Recognized as one of the most innovative voices on the fashion scene, the designer will launch his first menswear collection. The Marco De Vincenzo SS2020 men's collection will be presented with a fashion show scheduled for Wednesday, June 12th, 2019, 10.00am at the Tepidarium del Roster.
The special event is organized in collaboration with the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana [The National Chamber for Italian Fashion].
“Marco De Vincenzo is one of the most successful Italian fashion talents on an international level," said Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine Director of Communication & Events.  "We are happy that he is back at Pitti Uomo for the debut of his menswear collection. I am convinced that together we will find a space in Florence able to further inspire him for this truly special occasion. It already happened three years ago when his installation inside the historic Niccolini Theater built around the visual and spatial relationships between the clothes, crystals and lights enthralled the public due to the refined cultural references. May it be a good omen for this new, necessary and courageous undertaking of Marco.”

“In 2016 I was invited by Pitti as a guest designer for women's ready-to-wear," said the designer and founder Marco de Vincenzo. “The energy of that event was so incredible that I had promised myself I would return for an important debut. My first menswear collection could only be presented in a similar context, where the joy of doing this job is felt in every corner of the city.”
