Pitti Immagine Uomo 90 looks to be the most anticipated iteration yet, revealing designer Raf Simons as another special guest at the the biannual menswear event. Celebrating the legendary force, “Florence Calling: Raf Simons” will debut the designer’s Spring/Summer 2017 collection, in addition to a special project developed exclusively for Pitti. “Florence holds a special place in my heart,” said Simons in a statement “… Over the years, I have regularly come back to show my work or to collaborate on ventures that closely mirrored my thoughts about it.” The news follows the announcement of Gosha Rubchinskiy as this season’s guest designer, with special appearances by Hiroki Nakamura of Visvim, Fausto Puglisi, and Lucio Vanotti.
