From June 13 to 16, the fashion industry gathered in Florence for the twice-yearly menswear trade show, Pitti Uomo. Here are photo galleries from three of the top runway shows.


Eli Russel Linnetz, AKA ERL, delighted fashion professionals at Palazzo Corsini with his future-forward looks as Special Guest of Pitti Uomo 104. Originally from Venice, Los Angeles, the creative director blended Californian cool, Hollywoodian glamour and more than a touch of science fiction in his brilliant SS24 collection.


Fashionistas gathered on the factory floor at FENDI’s new centre of excellence outside Florence near Bagno a Ripoli for a thrilling runway that celebrated craftsmanship in an original spin on utilitarian workwear with “simple, clean lines”, in the words of creative director Silvia Venturini Fendi.  


Always a highlight of summer fashion week in Florence, 25 collections and more than 100 looks by Polimoda Firenze’s graduates were shown in the industrial setting of Manifattura Tabacchi’s B4 building. Selected by the school’s dean Massimiliano Giornetti and CEO of Tank Magazine, Caroline Issa, the students whose designs appeared on the runway were Anna Casalini (Italy), Fernanda Castro (Peru), Siying Chen (China), Charles Cote (Canada), Olivia Doose (Canada), Rahel Ercolini (Ethiopia), Iman Zubair Fazal (USA), Eleonora Federico (Italy), Haigann Fevier-President (Canada), Carola Emma Gali (Italy/UK), Giorgia Giannotta (Italy), Alisa Kosiborod (Russia), Xiaodan Liao (China), Chia-Ying Lin (Taiwan), Giulia Mauro (Italy), Giovanna Miali (Italy), Keziah Hyacinth Ottman (Ireland), Filipe Daniel Silva Mota Cerejo (Portugal), Abygail Nathale Smith (Jamaica), Danielle Smith (South Africa), Mingze Sun (China), Rachel Tay Za (Myanmar), Amina Vanneling (Sweden), Gabriele Venturi (Italy) and Marija Yankovich (Serbia).
