Among the most interesting news of the next Pitti Uomo summer edition, the launch of the first capsule collection inspired by a guide theme of Pitti Immagine is for sure one of the most experimental. From 13 to 19 June, on the first floor of the Italian department store La Rinascente in Milan, named “Best Department Store in the World 2016” by the Intercontinental Group of Department Stores (IGDS), there will be a corner of Pitti Uomo with a special pop up store dedicated to the limited edition “Boom, Pitti Blooms”, inspired by the stylistic theme created by the lifestyler Sergio Colantuoni. The capsule collection will be also showcased in one of the store’s winows on Piazza Duomo.

The temporary shop proposes a limited edition capsule collection consisting of 8 unisex basic accessories and pieces cured by the lifestyler with a completely different image. The capsule includes: Invicta backpack, Superga sneaker, Virtus T-Shirt and cap, White Sand trousers, Franco Ferrari Scarf, ecopelle bag made by Api SpA and Fiscatech and Timex Archive watch.
The mini collection, which will debut at Pitti Uomo in a series of colored kiosk, will only be available at La Rinascente in Milan. A selection of these items, with the addition of a special edition notebook by Moleskine, will be reserved for a small number of top buyers and international journalists participating the show.
