    MISMO BAGS AT PITTI UOMO 85 AND 86: EMBRACE YOUR INNER DANE Words and pictures by Jasper L Over the last year, I’ve found that it’s even more difficult to write about accessories in a meaningful way than it is to discuss clothing. Often, how items such as bags feel in your hands is the most...

    JUN HASHIMOTO AT PITTI 86

    JUN HASHIMOTO 2.0 AT PITTI 86: YOU CAN (NOT) UNDERSTAND Or, If Only I Could Use My Camera Words and pictures by Jasper L Part of what, in my mind, makes Jun Hashimoto such an interesting character is that - relative to most of the people at Pitti - he’s an obvious pragmatist. Well, he...

    PITTI UOMO 86, DAY 4: HOMEWARD BOUND

    Day 4: Homeward Bound “Of all creatures that breathe and move upon the earth, nothing is bred that is weaker than man.” *** No one gets blogged on Friday. Only the lifers are still here; the die hard sprezzatourists. There's a tiredness to the chatting and smoking that I haven seen before...

    PITTI UOMO 86, DAY 3: SCYLLA AND CHARYBDIS

    Day 3: Scylla and Charybdis “Inside it Scylla sits and yelps with a voice that you might take to be that of a young hound, but in truth she is a dreadful monster and no one - not even a god - could face her without being terror-struck… No ship ever yet got past her without losing some men, for...

    THE PITTILOGUES RETURN: PITTI UOMO 86, DAY ZERO Sing to me of the man, Muse, the man of twists and turns driven time and again off course I am fairly certain that Pitti is cursed. I arrived at the airport to find that my flight had already been delayed by an hour. No matter, I thought, I...
