One of the best parts (and my favorite part) of Florence’s famed menswear trade show Pitti Immagine Uomo is the incredible street style on display. If you thought preening and peacocking was purely a women’s fashion sport you are so, so wrong. The men of Pitti show the women of Paris fashion week up. And while there’s always a lot of unique personal style on display (like a dude wearing a tail attached to his belt) distinct trends emerge and they’re usually a sign of cool to come.
We checked in with the man who takes in all of it, street style photographer extraordinaire, Tommy Ton, to get his authoritative take on the top trends he snapped at Pitti. They’re trends that we found ourselves wanting to try out, too. Susie Lau and I actually had a long discussion following the Valentino show about how much we wanted to wear menswear (especially those Valentino sneakers).
