Rob headed off on his annual trip to Florence last week. He saw Rembrandts, Carvaggios and Da Vincis at the Uffizi Gallery, ate the best steak in Europe and partied at WP's 30th anniversary bash. And then came the serious business of Pitti and kitting out menswear for AW13. Top of the agenda was specialist denim and he managed to get a major tick with a new brand that manufactures in the spiritual home of denim, San Francisco. Workwear continued to feature heavily so expect plenty more unconstructed wool tailoring, only cleaner and more pared down than in previous seasons. All in all a pleasing haul but the most exciting find of all has to be a young, up and coming British tailor. Plans are afoot to work together, so watch this space.
