Pitti Uomo

It’s been announced that Jil Sander will be the guest designer at the next Pitti Uomo show in Florence in January.

Lucie and Luke Meier – co-creative directors of Jil Sander since spring 2017 – will present the new menswear collection of the iconic fashion house at a special event in Florence.

Lucie Meier said: “For us, showing in Florence is both an honour and a completion. We first met in Florence, and never imagined that we would be back here together showing at Pitti Uomo, so this opportunity is a truly special one.”

Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine director of communications and events, added: “We have been following with great interest the work of Lucie and Luke Meier at Jil Sander. With a very precise vision of fashion, and the desire to create clothes that last over time, it’s an approach that we find to be absolutely fresh and contemporary.”

Pitti Uomo will run from 7-10 January, 2020. The date and the venue of the Jil Sander event will be unveiled in November.
