Virgil Abloh, guest of honour at the 2017 Pitti Uomo
Creative director of Off-White, Virgil Abloh will be guest of honour at the prestigious men’s fashion fair Pitti Uomo taking place in Florence from June 13th to 16th.
Virgil Abloh, Kanye West’s ex-creative director and current director of street wear label Off-White, will be the guest of honour at the famous fashion trade fair Pitti Uomo in Florence. The annual menswear event Pitti Uomo has in just a few years become the absolute must-visit for professionals in the domain. Chosen for his creative flair, aesthetic sensibilities and collaborations with fashion’s big guns (Nick Knight, Riccardo Tisci, Kim Jones and Olivier Rousteing), the designer follows Russian Gosha Rubchinskiy and the Korean Juun J. This prestigious invite will allow Virgil Abloh to show his men’s spring-summer 2018 collection and a part of his women’s pre-collection in Florence during the trade fair.
“This is a major honour, in my eyes this platform is seriously distinguished among the most famous scenes in terms of immortalising the story of fashion and I plan to add a unique chapter to it,” he announced.
