Anyone who closely follows the fashion shows is already aware of such a large-scale event as Pitti Uomo 88 - 2015, which took place in the beautiful Italian city of Florence, from June 16-19. Pitti Uomo is always new, fresh solutions for stylish men

PurchaseLuxe, once again, becomes a guide to the world of real Italian fashion and covers this event, being one of the first to the ancient Florentine fortress FortezzdBasso, where the main exhibition of men's fashion took place. The Medici Pavilion hosted the most eminent Italian brands, including the regular partners of PurchaseLux - AFG and TeresTardia, who presented their new spring-summer 2016 collections.

This kind of event is a good opportunity to learn firsthand about how the collections were created, what inspired the designers, from what principles they started. The meeting of the special correspondent of PurchaseLux and the brand owners was held in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The top officials of the companies shared the latest news and answered all fashion questions of interest to us and brand fans.

Piero Fontanelli, co-owner of Nipal and chief designer of the AFG outerwear line, is always sincerely happy to tell the Russian audience about his brand. Having experience of cooperation with the Russian Olympic team - developing models for the Olympics in Vancouver and Sochi - Piero clearly knows what kind of clothes are needed for our climate. For Russian men, AFG has added models with a wider shoulder girdle and for taller growth to the collection.

Вообще, тема «plus size» четко просматривается в Pitti Uomo 88. Модели адаптированы не для человека манекена, а для людей абсолютно свободных форм. Улавливая свежие тренды еще до их тотального распространения, дизайнеры представили мужскую коллекцию очень молодежной, разноцветной, с довольно разнообразными фасонами. В верхней одежде коллекции в качестве утеплителя использован легчайший гусиный пух, что позволяет не боятся даже сибирских морозов.

Also, Pierrot introduced such a concept as "slow" fashion. As the maestro explained, in contrast to the global fast-fashion, which dresses all the inhabitants of the planet in the same clothes of a very dubious quality, AFG creates unique sketches that will not become outdated even for 5-7 years. "Slow" fashion does not allow clogging wardrobes with one-day clothes of dubious quality. The individuality, relevance and status of the thing are above all.

AFG is also proud of the fact that production has been concentrated in the Italian city of Empoli for many decades, during which time its traditions and glorious history have developed. Pierrot, jokingly, says: "Made in Empoli", thus making it clear that he devotes himself entirely to this particular factory, to these places.

Pitti Uomo this year already 88 times gathers the coolest and most stylish designers, fashion gurus, among which the Italian clothing brand TeresTardia has become a prominent representative. The meeting with the owner of the brand Piero Tardia took place in a warm and cheerful atmosphere, where he told what novelties Tardia is preparing to surprise in the new season.

The designers took water as the basis for inspiration for the creation of the men's summer collection next year. For example, men's jackets are decorated with prints of the most famous fountains in Italy - mostly Roman ones. Looking ahead a bit, talking about the cold season and opening the veil of secrecy, we can say that geometric prints dedicated to Joe Colombo, the genius of architecture, will flaunt on the lining of men's coats. The TeresTardi brand is also known for producing clothes for women, but, as Piero Tardia himself admits, making clothes for men is much more difficult, having for the most part only classic silhouettes, you need to constantly strive to diversify them. In the summer collection 2016 for men, reversible jackets are modeled, with a white seamy side and a blue front side - and vice versa, at the request or mood of its owner. With these two colorsof course, the color range of the collection was not limited, and judging by the number of Italian dandy crowded at the Tardi exhibition stand, something special has been prepared here.

Cashmere, angora, cotton, mohair and alpaca wool were used to create the spring-summer 2016 collection. Not accepting impurities of synthetics, even in a minimal ratio, the TeresTardi brand produces products only from the “golden wool” of Loro Piana. When creating the collections, both natural fur and leather were used, but only in details or as decorative inserts.

Returning to the plus size question, Pierrot said that he did not consider this a disadvantage. Why not be proud of its large forms? Tardi designers do not intend to constrain lovers of their brand with generally accepted standards and drive them into frames.

Vertical reliefs and modeled darts allow owners of large forms to present them favorably, which is also what the increasingly popular curvy trend calls for. Tardi has not been developing in the direction of plus size for the first year, and for both women and men, there is a rich selection of outerwear.

BuyingLuxe, together with the brands AFG and TeresTardia, will continue to delight its customers in the new season. Giving preference to the best and long-term traditions, instilling a taste for quality, elegance and "slow" fashion, PurchaseLux strives to make sophisticated style accessible to everyone.

The next meeting with designers of famous clothing brands will take place in the fall, in Moscow, at the CPM exhibition, which we will definitely tell you about so that everyone has the opportunity to keep abreast of the latest fashion events.
