Emotions and instinct will be the key deciding factors behind chosen stylistic trends of the Winter 2020/21 collections. In fact, the trends identified by Lineapelle’s Fashion Committee will be developed on these key themes, and summarized with the acronym EQ: Emotion Quotient.
What does EQ mean
“Our emotional quotient is the measure unit for the digital revolution that has caused expression to be faster a filter-less. Rationality becomes a pure instinct – explains Antonella Bertagnin, coordinator of Lineapelle’s Fashion Committee -. The thread that connects this season is the dialogue between perfect and imperfect, the interferences/partnerships between natural and technological”. New equilibriums between natural processes and materials: “We will be able to see very polished tinted leather pieces such as ones dyed and refined to be bordering perfection”. The harmony comes from the contrast, so that materials may explore their natural imperfection with a contemporary edge.
In order to add value to this instinctive pulse, the Trend Areas at Lineapelle97 have been completely re-interpreted and redefined. The showcasing of the most innovative samples supplied by exhibitors – about 2,000 units of leather pieces, accessories and components, textiles and synthetics – will be surrounded by emotional and impacting colors. Main character: a range of reds capable of causing a stimulating and suggestive visual impact.
Where to find them
Trend Areas are located at the entrance of pavilion 13 and inside the pavilions 22 and 9. Visitors are not allowed to take pictures inside of these spaces. Additionally, during the first two days of Lineapelle97 (October 2nd and 3rd), visitors can participate to fashion seminars (payment required), curated by the Fair’s Fashion Committee. These courses will take place in the A aisle of pavilions 13, at 15:00 in Italian and at 16:30 in English.
