Mr Simone Marchetti has been the fashion editor at La Repubblica since 2009. According to Mr Marchetti, "In order for men's fashion to progress it has to push the edges of tradition and have more imagination and boldness, but most importantly it is about having fun." This was clearly visible in his experiment with colour and texture at this year's Pitti Uomo show, which made him a serious contender in the menswear style stakes. It comes, therefore, as no surprise that Mr Marchetti will be launching his own website in September that will be a mixture of journalism and blogging.
