Moschino & Thomas Tait announced as
guest designers at Pitti Immagine Uomo

Italian men's fashion trade show Pitti Immagine Uomo, taking place from 16-19 June in Milan, has announced Moschino as its menswear guest designer. This will be the brand’s first runway show featuring men’s fashion in Italy since Jeremy Scott took over as Creative Director. Raffaello Napoleone, CEO of Pitti Immagine, comments: In Jeremy Scott’s collections, we see the humor, the irreverence, the tendency to explode myths, and the manipulation of pop iconography – all that we knew to be part of Franco Moschino’s spirit and designs... There is also lots of originality in his work - he seems to have a sort of special-sensor focused on our times - in the way he combines fabrics and materials, especially the finest types, because his designs are luxurious. And that is the reason behind our invitation." In addition, London-based Canadian fashion designer Thomas Tait will be the womenswear guest designer at the same edition of Pitti Uomo. Lapo Cianchi, Director of Communications and Events at Pitti Immagine, commented: “We like his coherence, sartorial skills, unexpected shapes and dry devotion to design. He is never afraid to experiment and push the envelope. That is why we thought of offering him the opportunity to express his creativity here in Florence with an unusual – unusual for him, that is – project, that we could call “reflections on his work”, with the “help” of special places in the city.”
