Pitti Uomo is the pulse of global fashion for men and the world’s best trade fair on the map. With 825 exhibitors, the 104th Florentine Show is the perfect encounter to discover innovative products, creative sensitivities, and diverse cultural influences.
Ahead of Milan Fashion Week, this event is the world's leading platform for launching new men's clothing collections and projects. It's one we're very proud to be a part of again this SS23.
Our first collection was presented at Pitti Uomo in 2018, and we have participated every year since then. Our brand has been accepted without hesitation at the fair from the very beginning and has contributed greatly to the growth and expansion of our brand.
Benibeca x Pitti Uomo - our further global expansion
There was a lot of focus on Linnet's surfer cool summer staples like the classic LL bean beach boat totes, bandanas, and white jeans, the most ideal correlation for our Benibeca bohemian luxury summer style.
The high-quality products and prints of the Benibeca brand captured the hearts of many visitors, who expressed their delight at our uniqueness.
I was pleased to attend the fair myself (Anjara - designer and founder) with Camillo, our first team member responsible for global expansion coordination and Stellios, our Switz distributor.
Our brand continues to grow, expand, and add new apparel while maintaining the singularity of exclusive design. As a result of Pitti Uomo 2023, we are well on the way to expanding further across the globe into Dubai, Israel, Germany, and Holland in the near future.
An internationally renowned fashion fair for men's clothing
The Pitti Immagine exhibition has taken place biannually since 1972 in Florence to promote the fashion industry. Every January and June, the fair attracts designers, buyers, and fashion enthusiasts worldwide, emphasising innovative designs and the latest trends that shape men's fashion for the upcoming season.
The fair provides established and emerging brands with a platform to showcase their collections. With its far-reaching impact on the fashion industry, Pitti Immagine Uomo remains an essential event for those at the intersection of fashion and culture.
