Pitti Uomo 81 presents


Guest Designer at the next edition

“The House of Valentino will be the Guest Designer at Pitti Uomo 81. We are very happy that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, the Valentino creative directors, accepted our invitation”, says Raffaello Napoleone, CEO of Pitti Immagine. “Their work combines a dynamic, contemporary spirit with the sartorial savoir-faire of a house that wrote a huge chapter in the history of fashion. Their visionary yet pragmatic approach combines tradition and innovation without interruptions: this is a feature that Pitti Immagine has always admired and looked for in fashion designers. We have been following their work since the first shows in Paris. In a very short time they have develop a secure poetic and precise style. And now the time has come to offer them the Pitti stage to present the new vision of the Valentino Man with a dedicated fashion show”.

On Wednesday, 11 January, during an evening event in the special venue of Palazzo Corsini in Florence, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli will present the première showing of the 2012-13 F/W Men’s Collection. By so prominently featuring one of the icons of Made in Italy, Pitti Uomo continues its support for contemporary Italian fashions.
