    PNP seems to have closed. They moved to a new location in Florence a few months ago but were reservation-only, and since September the website is shut down. No news since then.

    Quite sad: it was one of the first "avant-garde" shop I dreamed about...

    Fashion has moved on and the secondary market for that stuff is saturated. Stores like that are not viable anymore, unfortunately.

    Yes, very sad news. No Guya or PNP in Florence anymore is a big hit to fashion here. Also, I should note that before the website shut down there was a big clearance sale including popular products, like all Guidi at 50% off. They haven't made an announcement or anything but all the signs are there.

    Very true and sad point about the viability of these niche stores today, especially with current travel restrictions. People are filling their fashion desires through online shopping, at least for now.

    My theory is that the growing Grailed crowd is slowly killing off actual locations related to niche fashion. When you can experience and fawn over 2000 Euro boots through a phone screen, the physical seller matters less. Values have changed and there is no longer a need to plan a trip and experience the physical store.

    Also, you know, the pandemic. Italy has been feeling its effects longer than other European countries.
