Pitti Uomo and Pitti W have named Scott Sternberg of ‘Band of Outsiders’ as their next guest designers, Sternberg will be working alongside design duo Rodarte. Pitti Uomo and Pitti W are trade shows that occur twice a year in Florence and in a statement given about their guest designer choices said “They both connect us to the mythology of Western America: Los Angeles, where all three designers live and work; film, which they are obviously interested in; and the expanses of the interstate highway that runs through California or heads into the desert of Nevada. The European curiosity about California culture and the landscape played an important role in Pitti’s decision to invite both designers to Florence at the same time.”
The designers will be following in the footsteps of the likes of Gareth Pugh who was guest designer at the January show. It will be interesting to see what the three designers come up with.
