Jil Sander will be the Guest Designer at the next edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo n.97, taking place at Fortezza da Basso in Florence from 7th to 10th of January 2020.
Lucie and Luke Meier, Creative Co-Directors for Jil Sander since the Spring 2017, will present the new menswear FW 2020 Collection for the iconic fashion house, with a special fashion event in Florence.
“We are following with great interest the work done by Lucie and Luke Meier at Jil Sander”, Lapo Cianchi, Communications and Events Manager at Pitti Immagine, has commented. “Their work is carried out with a clear vision of fashion, where there is a constant quest for the perfect balance between the Minimalist principles, which have marked the brand’s evolution, and a great attention for details. When they talk about their collections, it seems that they are describing a personality, a figure who is always complex and multifaceted. The desire of designing dresses which can last for long is an absolutely fresh and contemporary approach, to which the event in Florence is going to contribute in terms of freedom of expression”.
“On our opinion, having a catwalk in Florence is a great honour and a further achievement”, Lucie and Luke Meier, Creative Co-Directors at Jil Sander have declared. “We did meet for the very first time in Florence and, at that time, we would have never imagined to come back here for a fashion event at Pitti Uomo. It is a special opportunity and we are looking forward to offering our contribution to the creative heritage of this Italian city and of Pitti Uomo”.
The date and location for this special event will be communicated during the press conference of Pitti Immagine next November.
