FLORENCE — Faced with a tense economic climate and a foggy outlook entering what is traditionally the men’s market’s weakest season, exhibitors at the Pitti Immagine Uomo men’s trade fair here are hoping color and prints will save the day.
Vendors were mixed in their outlook, with tailoring brands upbeat and contemporary players exhibiting a more jittery stance. Conservatively eyeing the future, buyers, who braved an unrelenting heat wave that transformed exhibitor tents into ovens, said their budgets were stable.
