Fashion Corner with Shayne Tino: Pitti Uomo 106

Introducing Fashion Corner: with Shayne Tino - where Shayne takes Remix readers along with him on his travels across Europe over the next few months, highlighting sartorial style and unique travel content as an honorary guest editor.

First stop: Pitti Uomo 106, sharing the key trends for menswear, street style looks and how the event has evolved over the years.

What started as an industry event, has now evolved into a permanent fix in the men’s fashion month calendar - and my personal favourite event of the year.

Traditionally trade shows were industry only events, designed for buyers to come and place orders from international brands and for brands to showcase their take on next year’s spring/summer collection.

Florence’s Pitti Uomo has now become the centre of inspiration globally for menswear. Fashion enthusiasts from all corners of the world are flooding the gates of Pitti, from influencers to student designers, buyers, Florence locals, business owners and manufacturers - it’s the cultural hub of menswear.



Although Pitti originally was focused on tailoring, it is one of the only remaining trade shows in the world and brings together an eclectic mix of streetwear, tailoring and footwear brands.

Pre-covid, tailoring was all about classic menswear - which was of course reflected at Pitti. Ties seemed mandatory and every second person would be in a fedora, with a heavy focus on slim fit made to measure suits and traditional tailoring.

Post-covid, people have become accustomed to ‘dressing down’, which has influenced where tailoring is heading for 2025. In today's landscape it’s all about relaxed tailoring, and pairing contemporary garments with tailored pieces.



Pairing a blazer with a polo, singlet or knit.

Cuban collared shirts.

Dress shoes over sneakers, elevating the more relaxed looks.

Loafers and fisherman sandals.

Scarfs replaced ties as the must have accessory.




The legendary Paul Smith returned to Pitti Uomo this year to showcase, after a 31 year hiatus from the event. This further cements Pitti as the heartbeat of the men's calendar, and what a way to kick off the season.

Pitti has left me feeling inspired and excited for what’s to come, and I look forward to reporting as an insider back to Remix on all things mens fashion month, travel and style.

Next stop: Milan fashion week.
