FLORENCE — An additional Designer Collection pavilion at the stately 19th-century Villa Vittoria upped the fashion ante of last month’s Pitti W — Woman Precollection.
The new pavilion, located across the street from the original Dogana space, is dedicated to innovative designer brands. The third edition of the women’s show ran here concurrently with the men’s wear exhibition Pitti Uomo.
