It's official! Iconic British designer Paul Smith has just been announced as the special guest for Pitti Uomo's 91st season, following in the footsteps of previous appearances by MarniMoschino, Z Zegna and Kenzo. Set to be held in January, the leading fashion event for menswear, accessories and emerging designers will also see Paul Smith launch his contemporary line, aptly titled PS by Paul Smith. 

In addition to Smith's appearance, menswear guest designer Tim Coppens – who is also nominated for CFDA's Menswear Designer of the Year Award – will present his Fall/Winter '17 menswear collection. The presentation will be followed by the London-based menswear label Cottweiler, who will be presenting their street-inspired collaboration with Reebok. Another must-see will be lifestyle label Golden Goose Deluxe Brand's signature signature installation.

Pitti Uomo 91 is set to take place from January 10-13, 2017, in Florence, Italy. In the meantime, browse through Paul Smith's Spring/Summer '17 menswear collection showcased during Paris Fashion Week.
