The show will run from 11-14 June where the Artistic Director of Givenchy, Clare Waight Keller will present her Spring/Summer 2020 menswear collection for the brand with a special event on June 12.
“It is a huge honour for us to host the runway debut of the Givenchy men’s collection under the creative direction of Clare Waight Keller. A strong, modern and elegant vision: it is the perfect project for Pitti Uomo. I am certain that the atmospheres and spaces of Florence will offer Givenchy further aesthetic and symbolic motivations for concentrating on men’s fashion.” – Lapo Cianchi, Director of Communication and Special Events, Pitti Immagine
This will be Waight Keller first standalone men’s catwalk show, following a highly received presentation in January at the brands historic haute Couture atelier on Avenue George V, before heading back to Paris Men’s fashion week next January.
