Italy's menswear fashion week drew to a close on Monday, with both Pitti Uomo and the Milanese runways witnessing the retreat of streetwear and a return to a certain chic elegance through more classic menswear.
The menswear brand Canali, currently undergoing a reorganisation, chose Pitti Uomo at the Palazzo Antinori, Florence, to unveil its new softer and younger image and to launch its first casual wear line.
The menswear trade show is set to debut a trend program produced by Cool Hunting, as well as a line-up of men's fashion forums and trend presentations made in partnership with trend forecasting company WGSN.
The next edition of the UBM-run sourcing trade show will focus on sustainability through technology and will feature innovative VR experiences, as well as the latest in production and design tech and sourcing tools.
More than 3,000 brands and collections will be presented to buyers for the Autumn/Winter 2019/20 season at the Premium, Seek, Panorama and Berliner Salon events. Messe Frankfurt will debut its new Neonyt concept.
Asos has released a list of the items that its customers bought into enthusiastically last year and a number of the trends look set to resonate with consumers in 2019 too with animal print and dad trainers both key.
