Lineapelle lights up Paris, opening the way to a new idea of sustainability. Responsible innovation, the latest-generation green horizon for leather and fashion materials on which the idea and development of A New Point Of Materials is based. Launched during last September’s edition of Lineapelle, the format landed on Tuesday, December 7, 2021, under the Eiffel Tower, achieving its objective in full.
Lineapelle lights up Paris
The venue for the Paris leg of A New Point Of Materials was the Italian Embassy. This was the setting for the presentation of “an exploratory journey that takes a critical look at a careful selection of new-generation materials and leathers, characterised by an evolving, high-profile green content”. In Paris, this pathway was met with concrete and sustained interest from fashion brands and start-ups. The objective of creating a new (more critical, technological and in-depth) culture of materials has been achieved.
The road to responsible innovation
Responsible innovation, explains Fulvia Bacchi, CEO of Lineapelle, is “a road that the sector has already taken, and that today has reached a point of no return, giving a glimpse of horizons of great creativity”. A road that will continue in January 2022, exporting A New Point Of Materials to the USA. First at Lineapelle New York (Metropolitan Pavilion, Manhattan, January 26-27, 2022), then in Los Angeles. Finally, returning to Italy, to Milan, on the occasion of the “next edition of Lineapelle, scheduled on February 22-24, 2022 at Fieramilano Rho”. At Lineapelle in February, “for which we already have the adhesion of about 1,000 exhibitors, a number close to pre-Covid levels”, continues Bacchi, “we will open a space to sustainable materials that should welcome between 50 and 70 companies”.
Before the First
Speaking of Lineapelle and fashion culture, before leaving for Paris, on Monday December 6, a stimulating meeting took place at Spazio Lineapelle (Milan) in preparation for La Scala premiere on December 7. Il Foglio journalist Fabiana Giacomotti moderated a conversation with costume designer Gianluca Falaschi and writer Giacomo Papi, entitled Contemporary Macbeth.
