To mark the 30th anniversary of Pitti Uomo, the Florence-based trade show is set to host an exhibition looking back at previous guest designers. Titled 1989-2019: Thirty Years of Men’s Fashion, the exhibition is set to feature over 150 designers and labels. The designers already confirmed to participate include Raf Simons, Craig Green, Jil Sander, Yohji Yamamoto, Vivienne Westwood and Martin Margiela amongst others.

The exhibition has been put together by fashion historian and art curator Olivier Saillard, who told WWD that “Pitti Uomo represents for men’s fashion what Cannes and Venice do for cinema. A lot of men, but also women, who have shaped men’s fashion as a creative subject stopped by Florence. Against different sets, traditional or daring, along with the city of Florence and its prestigious places, creators were able to conceive the craziest shows to serve their collections.”

1989-2019: Thirty Years of Men’s Fashion will open at Palazzo Pitti’s Museum of Fashion and Costume on June 11 and will run until September 29. Following the exhibition, some pieces will be donated by the fashion houses to the installation of Pitti’s permanent collection of menswear pieces.

This season’s Pitti is also set to feature Givenchy as guest designer, marking Clare Waight Keller’s first standalone menswear show for the house.
