Pitti Highlights

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Elite Traveler Style Editor Tanya Dukes shares the latest innovation and trends in menswear direct from the floor of the Pitti Immagine Uomo show in Florence.

Aquascutum Brit-brand Aquascutum has relaunched in high style. Its exclusive new Vintage Collection includes super functional outwear: The limited edition, individually numbered pieces are sharp updates of archive pieces like the one Edmund Hillary wore to climb Everest.

Oxxford Clothes Americana is the order of the day from Oxxford Clothes, this time mining the styles of 1970s superstars like Warren Beatty and Steve McQueen for inspiration. Look for rediscovered favorites like camel hair coats and masculine pieces in star houndstooth made from wool hand woven in the Hebrides.

Stefano Ricci Show-stopping pieces in fur and exotic skins are key to of Stefano Ricci’s fall collection. Chinchilla and Russian sable get woven with cashmere for knitwear of hard-to-believe softness and warmth. And for a money-is-no-object indulgence check out the $70,000 crocodile jacket with a satiny brushed surface.

Brunello Cucinelli Tackling formal wear for the first time with its fall 2009 collection. Brunello Cucinelli applied its signature earthy, elegant look to the tuxedo. But there’s no dour black to be found—navy blue and soft grey tuxedos come in super soft cashmere. And the recommended footwear to pair with them? Super soft desert boots from Cucinelli’s new shoe line.

Kiton Known for masterful production of the fine fabrics it uses in its top tailoring technique, Kiton’s focus is on pushing the boundaries of its materials. Key pieces for fall use technical expertise to the fullest, including an ultra light shearling jacket, waterproof leather pieces and elegant cashmere jeans.
