MILAN — Pitti W has tapped French accessories designer Olympia Le-Tan as guest designer for its next edition.

The ready-to-wear and accessories trade fair will take place in Florence from Jan. 10 to 13, in conjunction with men’s wear show Pitti Uomo.

The Le-Tan event will be held on Jan. 12. She plans to unveil a special collection of bags inspired by a number of Italian literature masterpieces — a longtime passion of hers.

“At University, I studied Italian literature and I was supposed to move to Florence for a year, but unfortunately I couldn’t make it. That’s why I’m enthusiastic about starting to peruse through my old books by Dante, Boccaccio, Pirandello, Verga and Manzoni, and to see which could work for my bags," she stated.
