The Berlin-based designer will be among the special guests of the upcoming edition of Pitti Uomo, running Jan. 10-17. The designer will stage a special event on Jan. 9 in a still undisclosed location.
After exiting the Ermenegildo Zegna company in 2016, Pilati teased his Random Identities unisex line the following year with Instagram posts. The brand officially debuted at Canadian e-tailer Ssense in November 2018.
“It’s a great pleasure to offer a preview of Random Identities, the new project by Stefano Pilati, and this event demonstrates our longtime mutual respect and friendship,” said Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine director of communication and events. “Along with its original contribution to the ideas of gender and identity, it seems that Random Identities is a fruit of Pilati’s inner desire to express himself through fashion, with his obsession for clothes that is the result of decades of integrity, work and constant learning.”
The schedule of the next edition of Pitti Uomo will also include a runway show hosted by Jil Sander, the other special guest brand at the trade show, as well as an event by Telfar Clemens, the founder and creative director of non-gendered label.
