Pitti Immagine invites Brioni to celebrate its 75th anniversary with a special presentation to be held in Florence during the opening day of Pitti Immagine Uomo 97 on January 7th 2020.
The event curated by Olivier Saillard will present the Fall/Winter 2020/2021 collection through a unique installation which will pay tribute to the brand’s sartorial heritage.
The presentation will mark Brioni’s return to Florence where the House sealed its reputation by hosting the first ever men’s fashion show at the Sala Bianca of Palazzo Pitti in 1952.
