Pitti Immagine Filati: YARNS UNITED (part two)

“Nathalie in Blu” by Beatrice Brandini

SESIA Manifatture 1963

My journey continues through Pitti Immagine Filati, an extraordinary fair for trends and excellent artifacts (from the lat. Manu factus “handmade”, which is the work of man).

The final data of the fair confirm a small growth both for Italy and for international markets. However, what is fundamental to remember, and applies to all three fairs organized by Pitti, is the quality of the presences, confirming that the types of buyers, the style offices, the most important fashion houses, were there.

I start with CUSTOMEASY, a space dedicated to customization applied to luxury knitwear.







MILLEFILI: Always a great show the stand, for creativity, hospitality, generosity. This year the theme was that of fairy tales … ENCHANTING!

Inside Vintage Selection (Cavaniglia Pavilion), or sensational vintage proposals for all tastes (luxury, avant-garde, street, military ..), always the preparation of A.N.G.E.L.O which in this edition was inspired by the flag as research of geometries and patterns, as a unique and universal language, with pieces from the 1960s to the early 2000s.
