It's been a busy and productive trip to Florence so far. While it's almost over now, we've got another handful of meetings and collections to buy on our last day at Pitti. The show hasn't disappointing thus far, and we've managed to cook up some interesting special products as well that should be exciting to see next spring.

While Simon and I have been busy running from appointments to meetings, we haven't been able to camp outside alongside a slew of photographers to capture the style at Pitti. There are a lot of very nicely dressed men, and some great individual style on hand. Tommy Ton has put together a nice batch of images for GQ, while its a little sharper than my personal taste, for the most part, there are some nice images and its worth a scroll through.

Florence: Day 1 Snaps

—01. A parking lot in Amsterdam.

Words

The first leg of the trip mostly consisted of travel, so there weren't a ton of great images to capture from my middle seat on the plane. I got my first taste of Holland in the Amsterdam airport however, before meeting with Simon in Bologna and taking the train into Florence. Tomorrow we're off to the fair grounds to see collections from Esemplare, Yuketen, Monitaly and a few others.

Last Few Months

Words

Here's another set of images from the last few months. There's some behind the scenes shots from a couple of editorial shoots, some from our trip to Pitti, and some from the various studios, shops and showrooms we've visited. I shot all the photos on my Canon F1; some of them turned out a little nicer than others, but they all have a great feeling about them.

Florence, Day Two

Details

—01. Shots from our day in and around Florence.

Words

Our first full day in Italy was packed with appointments at Pitti and followed up by a beautiful evening in the Tuscany countryside. Much of Pitti Uomo was as we expected, but still impressive and really interesting to see. From the sea of navy blue, driving shoes and white pants, we bumped into several friends, designers and shop owners; some it was great to meet for the first time and others nice to see again. The weather held off nicely and the sun came out in time to set over the vineyards in the country. The location, view, food and company couldn't have been better.

Simon and I arrived in Florence today for our first visit to Pitti Uomo. Our first buying appointments for the SS11 season are scheduled for tomorrow with Yuketen, Nigel Cabourn and Engineered Garments. While there are a number of other brands and people to meet with, we are especially excited for the upcoming day at the show. We were lucky enough to get a great apartment in the heart of Florence so we'll be checking out a few shops in between appointments as well. I'll be trying to give daily updates from the field so stay tuned for a couple of sneak peaks and news of what's happening at Pitti in general.
