A new life for the classic trench at Pitti Uomo

Buyers up 5% at fair ending Friday as men's shows open in Milan

A new life for the classic trench at Pitti Uomo

Rome, January 15 - The classic trench coat has often been represented in pop-culture history as the timeless garment worn by men on a mission. And this icon designed to protect British military officers against rain and wind during WWI, has seen a new dawn in fall-winter 2016 collections at the Pitti Uomo trade fair wrapping up Friday in Florence. The versatility of the trench coat - so adaptable it was the signature piece worn by icons as diverse as Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, Peter Sellers in the Pink Panther and Prince in Purple Rain - is amplified next fall across collections debuted by the over 1,200 labels at the Pitti showcase. Empoli-based label Landi is celebrating its centennial with a classic rendition of the garment for which Thomas Burberry patented his water-repellent fabric, gabardine, in 1879, inspired by the waterproof linen smocks used by British farmers. Indeed Empoli near Florence is where 66 firms employed over 20,000 workers between 1907 and 1943 to produce the mac. Designed in the traditional double-breasted version with epaulettes, with the same manufacturing techniques used a century ago, Landi's model in khaki is slightly shiny making it also highly suitable for mid-season. Aquascutum, the heritage house founded in 1851 whose trench coats were donned by Winston Churchill, among others, also presented its 2016 rendition of the trench at Pitti. Herno premiered a capsule collection for men and women with innovative patterns and hues together with illustrator Pierre-Louis Mascia. Allegri explored the duality of natural and technical fibers for a classic take on functionality with the Oslo single-breasted trench, a house icon, produced in new high-tech materials. Meanwhile data released Thursday by Pitti Uomo's press office on the eve of the last day of the trade fair showed buyers at this 89th edition were 23,000, up 5% on the previous edition, including 8,150 foreigners, a 2.5% increase, and almost 15,000 Italians, up 8%. A significant increase was registered of buyers from Germany, the US, Great Britain, France, Japan, Spain, the Netherlands and northern European countries in general. Markets in China, Hong Kong, Russia and Turkey remain crucial though slightly declining, organizers said. And as the top international trade fair wraps up Friday, the fashion action is moving to Milan for five days of men's wear fall-winter 2016 shows. The first of the 39 shows on the official calendar will see the debut of Peter Dundas with his first men's collection for Roberto Cavalli after the Norwegian designer was appointed creative director of the Florentine label last spring. Saturday will open with Corneliani's fall collection on the catwalk, followed by Ermenegildo Zegna, which is launching for the occasion the digital project #zegnavoices with opinion-makers commenting the fashion show live as they interact online with creative director Stefano Pilati. The Armani theater will host the debut of Lucio Vannotti while Costume National will be presenting its men's wear collection at the Arengario. Dolce & Gabbana will debut their collection off the official calendar as usual while in the afternoon Marni, Jil Sander, Les Hommes and Neil Barret will debut their fall lineup. Sunday will open with Bottega Veneta, followed by N21, Richmond, Salvatore Ferragamo, Calvin Klein Collection, Vivienne Westwood, Missoni, Daks, Prada,Moncler gamme bleu and Damir Doma. Monday will see the debut of fall collections by Diesel Black Gold, Emporio Armani, Antonio Marras, Gucci, Etro, Msgm, Canali, Ermanno Scervino, Fendi, Marcelo Burlon county of Milan and Brioni. The men's wear Milan shows will wrap up Tuesday with Dsquared2, Giorgio Armani, Dirk Bikkembergs, Christian Pellizzari and the debut of Helen Anthony.
