Lineapelle 95, day 1: the fashion system gathers in Milan looking for stability. “Market is enigmatic; we need to look into it”

Lineapelle 95th edition kicks off at Fieramilano Rho (25-27 September) after the closing, about a week ago, of the finished products fairs, namely Micam and Mipel. Likewise, some fashion events, such as TheOneMilano, White and Super, have just (24 hours ago) said goodbye to their visitors. Conversely, the fashion week bustling shows are still underway. “Premiere Vision looked a bit slow. We are confident that at Lineapelle we will meet more people – points out Alfonso Giannattasio from Effegi tannery, based in Solofra -. What are our expectations about this three-day event? Comforting messages. The market is currently facing a weird situation: 2018 is actually proving to be a positive year in the end. We were concerned about risky problems”. Likewise, some representatives of Tuscan tannery Arnella remark: “We expect, at Lineapelle, visitors to understand and accept our style and product offer. Our presenting half-calf leather is directed at leather goods and footwear”. According to the economic reports, set by Confindustria Moda, the first business sector is speeding up; in contrast, the second one is still facing some difficulties: “We may confirm that – say from Arnella -. However, we ourselves hardly understand why these two markets are running along such discrepant trends”. Let’s wait and see: “Lineapelle95 enables brands and suppliers to meet up – emphasizes an agent who does not want his name to be made public -: this is going to be the real test to understand the future of leather fashion”. Talking about the ongoing several fairs and fashion shows, the same agent knows that another date will influence the manufacturers’ attitude: “As soon as fashion shows are over, winter sales will start”.
