Being the menswear tradeshow of the European calendar, Pitti Uomo is filled with impressive stalls, stands and installations. But of all, you’d be hard pressed to find one with a better view than the Ben Sherman space at the very top of the Fortezza Da Basso.
Ascend a tight, stone, spiral staircase to where the brand is celebrating ‘A Heritage of Modernism: 50 years of British style and culture’. At any given time of day you’ll be served drinks, while a DJ sends beats scattering across the historical fort until they’re lost to the sprawling views below.
Peek through the clothing racks and through the ancient stone ramparts, and you’ll see Florence laid out below like a feast upon a table. That said, if you can’t be there in person, you can take in the scene via the photos above.
