SUN MET INSPO STRAIGHT OUTTA ITALY

With the Sun Met happening this weekend in Cape Town we thought we’d throw out some dapper inspiration for you to get your style on. And what better report back than of the recent Pitti Uomo in Florence,Italy,  the bi-annual trade show where it’s all about Homme and has been since 1972.

It’s an event that determines what the shops will be stocking in 6 months time and it’s a smorgasbord of style. The stakes are high and so are the price tags, where some of the world’s most sought-after brands present their ranges to high profile editors, buyers, retailers and anyone whose anyone in the world of menswear.

It’s also where the big players in the world of fashion get the chance not just to see but to be seen. The street style is insane and the gathering is fruitful hunting ground for the likes of Scott Schuman and other street style photographers.

So here’s our pick of some of the most stylish looks from the 24/7 style marathon that was Pitti Uomo 91. Sit back, take note and let the inspiration take you to this weekend’s Sun Met.

Bright Lights…

Stand out in contrasting colours and pops of bright colours.

White Out…

Although a wintery look, we love the white on grey combination.

Contrasting prints…

Create texture with clashing prints.

All in the details…

From embroidery to brooches, to feathers in hats, it’s all in the detail.
