Pitti Uomo 100: a positive sign of recovery.

About 400 exhibitors gathered at the hundredth edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo, an incredible effort for the organizers and for the brands that in a short time managed to organize an event, in some respects surreal (less crowds, more empty spaces and more distance ), but who showed pride and above all a desire for rebirth.

Fashion is worth 80 billion euros and employs 500,000 people in our beautiful country, as the Minister of Economic Development Giancarlo Giorgetti recalled during yesterday’s inauguration, therefore it is a sector that must be supported and safeguarded, especially the one made up of small businesses. and small artisans, fundamental in the final result.

Mipel Lab

A great initiative was taken by Assopellettieri who, with its associated companies, launched during this edition of Pitti Uomo, a revolutionary project dedicated to the sourcing of Italian leather goods: “MIPEL Lab”. In a nutshell, Mipel Lab is a physical and digital “phygital” platform, which concretely connects brands from all over the world and Italian leather goods manufacturers.

The first edition of the new MIPEL Lab exhibition format will start next September at the same time as Lineapelle, from 22 to 24 September at FieraMilano-Rho.

Good life everyone!
