This week marks the start of the new trade show season, as directional designers and brands prepare to showcase their Fall/Winter 2016-17 collections at international industry events. Kicking off the 2016 trade show calendar is Pitti Uomo, an influential fashion and lifestyle platform previewing the latest clothing, footwear and accessory ranges for men. Currently taking place at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence, the show’s 89th edition is themed around the concept of ‘Pitti Generations’, exploring the coexistence of different generations in modern menswear styles. As ever, the experts at Trendstop.com will be hard at work this season, reporting on all the latest trends emerging at each international key trade show as it happens. Read on to discover three inspiring menswear directions analyzed at Pitti Uomo Fall/Winter 2016-17.

Formal styles are treated with a scruffy, dishevelled aesthetic this season, inspiring a look of the Distressed Gent. Across apparel and accessories alike, we see a play on grungy colourways, mottled patterning and worn-in or damaged details. Key pieces include torn trilby hats, muted textured coats and battered leather satchels.
Fur on the Inside

Perfect for cold weather wardrobes, casual jackets evolve for winter with a play on textured detailing. Bombers, parkas and outdoors styles combine woven or technical fabric exteriors with cosy fur linings for added warmth. Contrast shades highlight the material mix design, as multicolored patterning makes for a bolder statement.

As 70’s inspirations continue to influence modern menswear, designers demonstrate with a light-hearted approach to retro-look designs for Fall/Winter 2016-17. Neutral check blazers take on quirky academic appliqué, while knitted sweats make a statement with fun patterns. Formal brogues stand out with colour pop detailing.
