PRESENTATION IN BRUSSELS
Safety inside tanneries
It’s a priority for the sector. Customers keep the spotlight on the topic. Much has been done to improve. But there is still more to do. Here are the results of the research by cotance and industriALL . On safety and health in the tanning segment.
The risk assessment tool for tanneries is now free and online. The new updated version looks towards small & medium size businesses, but also to larger companies.
A chamber in Milano
The arbitrational entity moves from its historic location in Genova, puts emphasis on its 80 years of activity and renews its efficiency, because “respect for commercial rules is of fundamental importance”.
Lineapelle95 (25/27 September) confirms to be no longer “only” a fair: it is the dynamic baricenter of a global sector that in Milan looks for “networking occasions”, innovative stimulations and constantly upgrading contents.
The market’s tantrums
Even for the sector’s operators it is challenging to decipher the present trends and foresee the future ones. The road leading to the high-end segment becomes more insidious.
Lights and technology
Accessories, components, fabrics: fluo colors are a must at Lineapelle95, if coupled with innovation and sustainability. Struggling the most are Italy and footwear, with the exception of the sneaker.
Innovating was useful
The first edition of Lineapelle Innovation Square hits its mark and anticipates the leather and fashion industry’s want for the future.
The truth (almost) on footwear
Micam shows the future of footwear. (Very) uncertain market: “Large portions of budgets go to sneakers”, (Italian) prices “hard to explain to others” and an “unhelpful online side”. What to do?
DIGITAL AND SUSTAINABILITY
Naples, Italy, world
The 2019th edition of World Footwear Congress will take place on April 4-5, in Naples.
Italian leather goods get together at Fieramilano Rho and reloads its batteries with the enthusiasm of market data, grown in double-digits in 17 months. But doubts remain with regards to how to interpret the market.
Look who’s back
For the winter season soon to be here, brands rediscover a must from “other seasons”: the leather dust coat. And monthly magazine GQ Italia celebrates its comeback.
LEATHER AND FASHION SHOWS
New York’s answer
The provocation of Helsinki’s Fashion Show (“Stop to leather from the next year”) shoots against the largest catwalks (5/12 September) where stylists and brand celebrated it in full hands.
After New York, London Fashion Week (14/18 September) goes to “all leather” too. Especially (with some exciting releases) dominates Riccardo Tisci for Burberry’.
