Mr. Derk-Approved Street Style Trends From Pitti Uomo & How to Recreate Them

Milan Fashion Week took place June 17 – 20 and Pitti Uomo, the largest menswear trade show in the world, was held in Florence June 11 – 13. So, it’s only fitting we comment on what we know best – men’s fashion. Specifically, men’s street style. 

Italy comes alive with the trends and styles of the year in the summer months. Models hit the runways in some of the biggest cities in the country to showcase the newest and best in fashion to eager spectators.

While the trends on stage are always on point, so are the men in the streets attending the shows, and we couldn’t help but admire their camera-ready street style.

Here are the Mr. Derk-approved top street style trends from Italy and all of the key pieces you need to recreate them:

Here at Mr. Derk, we aren’t just all work and no play. There is a time and a place for a three-piece suit, just like there is a time and a place to pair some traditional wardrobe pieces with something a little more casual. In the streets of Florence, we noticed this was done many times with items like a suit jacket and dress shirt paired with a more casual capri pant.

Who could blame them? The weather in Italia this time of year is hot. But, that didn’t stop these men from adding a scarf to their outfit. Now you can do the same:

Italian men are no strangers to the benefits of colours and patterns in a sophisticated outfit. This year, spectators paired light jeans with bright patterned shirts.

Pitti Uomo even presented viewers with rows and rows of colourfully patterned swim trunks for Spring/Summer, 2018. This trend is all the rage for the 2018 fashion season.


Mr. Derk has you covered for a very bright Spring and Summer, 2018:

In April, plaid checks were named one of the key menswear prints and patterns of 2017. 

Why? This pattern, especially on a jacket, can be worn with a variety of different pieces, whether it be a matching piece or with a pair of solid pants.

The men of Florence and Milan took note of this up-and-coming trend, with many wearing a plaid jacket paired with other solid pieces. Va bene!

We’re no stranger to this trend at Mr. Derk:
