It is mind-opening to speak to fashion polymath Raffaello Napoleone, the CEO of Pitti Uomo, the world-renowned trade fair for men’s fashion, which is celebrating its 100th edition this year. Napoleone is also CEO of Pitti Immagine – the not-for-profit organisation that promotes the Italian fashion industry and ‘Made in Italy’ – and heads up Pitti Bimbo for children; Pitti Filati for yarns; and is a founder of the Polimoda fashion school with Linda Loppa, which helps to preserve the Italian fashion industry.
