Pitti Uomo has announced the first guest designer for its upcoming Spring/Summer 2020 schedule, with Givenchy set to present a menswear collection in Florence on June 12. The show will be British designer Clare Waight Keller‘s first standalone menswear show, and comes after Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 2019 menswear collection was debuted with a lookbook earlier this year.
Speaking to WWD, Waight Keller explained that “January was almost like the first chapter in the book. Pitti is the opportunity to take that step into a much broader collection, and that’s a big opportunity for me to really express what I want to do, and also just my more rounded vision of what I want for the Givenchy man.”
