One month has gone by, and it seems just as if it was yesterday. It was all about eleganza at the Stefano Ricci’s 45th anniversary during Pitti Uomo 91. The celebration took place at the Sala Bianca, one of Florence’s jewels for fashion and history being that Palazzo Pitti hosted the first Italian fashion show in 1952.
Wednesday, January 11th marked the special day for the Italian luxury menswear brand. Just as education is essential at a very young age, so is elegance. We saw the message of a true gentleman being passed on from “father to son” on the runaway. Models came out in waves of colors ranging from reds, blues, and touches of grey, all well synchronized with the lighting of the stage.
They exuded the yesterday’s, today’s, and tomorrow’s excellence of sartorial which reflected the authenticity of what 100% Made in Italy means. Throughout a preciousness that goes beyond all bounds with silk from the Antico Setificio Fiorentino, the sheared mink that warms the inside of the jackets, leather printed in exclusive Africa design, to only deliver the perfect cuts and tailoring there possibly is.
Once again we were blown away by the precision, perfect relaxed yet elegant fitting form and consistency of everything single chef d’oeuvre presented on the runway on that day. The event stated the true DNA and core of what the luxury brand Stefano Ricci stands for.”
