The popular kermesse dedicated to the high-end recreational yacht, which ran until Sunday, May 14, was hosted at the Darsena di Viareggio. “The leather for the interior design of high-quality nautical has become indispensable,” added Sergio Lubrani of CuoioArredo who works mainly for interior furnishing of mega yachts and, along with other tanning partners, has made leather outfits of the Lineapelle stand. “Leather is very demanding. It has now become part of the materials that a luxury boat needs to be” he added. In a 100-square-meter lounge, set up in collaboration with MyVintage Academy, in front of a pack of extra-luxury vessels, leather stood out with its fashion identity, craftsmanship and high technology to communicate to the nautical world its enormous potential Stylistic yet unexplored.
