Pitti Uomo 92: interview with Carlo Ferretti

The experience at Pitti Uomo 92 by Italo Ferretti, among President Trump’s ties and a total look collection highly appreciated by international operators. We asked Carlo Ferretti how this edition went and what are Italo Ferretti’s targets for the future.

What are your impressions on this 92° edition of the Pitti Uomo?

Definitely very positive. We have had good feedback from the exhibitors, especially international ones. It was a pleasant surprise to find the US operators we had come to know a few years ago. We have achieved the goals set, including those that have increased our contacts. My only regret is that I had no time whatsoever to enjoy the beautiful Florence, because of the limited time and rhythms imposed by the fair. 

This year you were present with a total look collection besides your top product, ties. How did it go?

I have to say that the total look collection has been greatly appreciated by our customers. For two seasons now, we have decided to invest in a total look collection, as well as on accessories, and the appreciation we received during the fair is the signal that was the right choice. A collection that targets elegance, made of new cuts and fabrics, of technical details carefully designed that make a difference to the more mainstream brands.

Italo Ferretti is a brand that looks at the international market. Do you believe that some recent events, such as Brexit or the possible restrictions announced by President Trump on the import of Made in Italy products, could affect the fashion industry? If so, how?

Trump is actually our client, he has chosen our ties made in our Silvi labs, he chose made in Italy. Jokes aside, I do not think such events, such as Brexit and restrictions on US imports, pose a threat to our market.

The tie, Italo Ferretti’s strong point, is one of the accessories for men par excellence. Do you think that in 2017 it can still be considered a timeless classic?

Absolutely yes. I think the tie represents the distinctive feature of the male look, almost an extension of the wearer. Despite the fact that in recent times, due to new trends, it seems to have suffered some ups and downs, the tie is definitely a timeless accessory.
Italo Ferretti confirms its appeal especially to the international target.
