Fashion darling and the creative force behind Loewe and J.W. Anderson Jonathan Anderson is debuting his designs in Italy this summer at Pitti Immagine Uomo. On Wednesday, June 14, he will show his men’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. “I’m honored to have been asked to show at Pitti Uomo,” said Anderson in a statement. “Florence’s aesthetic is beautiful, which will lend itself to be the perfect backdrop for the collection.”

“We have been keeping a careful eye on Jonathan Anderson’s career for several seasons,” said Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine director of communications and events, in a press release. “Above all, we are drawn to the creativity and eclecticism he expresses in his collections that are further enhanced by high-quality manufacturing and—in menswear—by undisputable sartorial skill. The way he reinterprets elements from the contemporary art scene and from the youth culture, alternating emotional impact (such as out-of-scale volumes) and transgression that are projected towards anticipating the future leaving little room for nostalgia, is very interesting. And his shows are always surprising, with great communicative strength.”

Additional guests will be announced on Thursday, March 16 HERE.
