Luxury French footwear designer Christian Louboutin is to make his Pitti Uomo debut with a “one-of-a-kind project” at the menswear tradeshow that will feature a competitive sporting event.
Taking place on June 13, the “engaging sporting event” will be held in a historic location in the centre of Florence and will feature Christian Louboutin Homme’s collection showcased by eight competing teams from the “four corners of the globe”.
Pitti guests will be invited to watch the tournament, but also, should they wish, they can participate in a series of masterclasses led by the sportsmen themselves. However, the types of sports have yet to be revealed.
“Florence to me has always been a city of leisure. For the first time, I am happy to mix leisure and the pleasure of my work there,” said Louboutin in a statement.
The 92nd edition of Pitti Uomo takes place from June 13-16 in Florence, Italy.
