It was a combination of trade show and runway. Fashion labels upload their inventory online for the perusal of store buyers and industry insiders. I am highly doubting on the feasibility of stocking a shop this way because everyone needs to see and touch the clothing in person before purchasing, but they are trying something new.That's cool, but Pitti Uomo and other tradeshows don't really lend itself to the same format. Honestly, I really can't see Pitti Uomo (which is usually slated first) occurring in June. Italy is still under full lockdown, and I don't see that being lifted until May, optimistically.
Pitti Uomo happening in June seems to be like one of those dreams in which I wake up in a frenzy, and have only half an hour to get on the plane. If everthing goes exactly right, I can barely make it, and every minute, something goes just a little more wrong. Then I wake up and realize that IRL, if I only had half an hour to get onto a plane from deep sleep, that I'd just cancel the flight.
Now that Paris mens and couture week are cancelled I doubt Pitti will go on, especially considering the entry restrictions imposed by European governments.
