A Short Novel on Menís Fashion

Edited with text by Olivier Saillard.

A Short Novel on Menís Fashion

A behind-the-scenes history of Pitti Uomo and the creative development of menís fashion over the past 40 years

Since the 1980s, menís fashion has left behind the staid predictability of earlier years and undergone a fundamental mutation. Men are now acknowledged to have the same desires as women in deriving pleasure from appearance and ornament. The time when a wife would choose her husbandís clothes for him is long over. Fashion marketed to men, presented at Fashion Week shows and distributed in specialized stores, has gotten more and more exciting, and menís fashion has accordingly enjoyed a growing critical recognition of its creative nature.

Since 1972 Pitti Uomo, the trade show for menís fashion held twice a year in Florence, has been the principal protagonist of these developments. Registering minimal variations in trends as well as great changes, Pitti Uomo has become the most influential show of menswear and continues to attract the most creative designers.

A Short Novel on Menís Fashion uses Pitti Uomo as the lens through which to consider the exhilarating recent progress of menís fashion. Bringing together personal perspectives by journalists and key figures on how menswear has changed over the last 40 years, alongside illustrations of designs by brands such as Armani, Fred Perry, Churchís, Marni, Aspesi and Brunello Cuccinelli, A Short Novel on Menís Fashion offers an engaging insider history of recent developments in menswear.
