FIVE DAYS DEDICATED TO LEATHER MADE IN ITALY
BETWEEN DESIGN, FASHION AND SUSTAINABLE COMMITMENT
Milan, September 2022 - On the occasion of Milan Fashion Week (20/26 September 2022) and of the 100th edition of Lineapelle (Fireamilano Rho - 20/22 September 2022), UNIC and Lineapelle have selected brands and young stylists who will present their collections at Spazio Lineapelle, in the heart of Milan (Piazza Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa): five days entirely dedicated to leather, between creativity, fashion and sustainability with events, performances and installations.
The objective, which has already been in place for a few seasons, is to support and valorise creative people who propose an innovative vision of the use of leather, and to offer tangible public examples of a sector, the tanning industry, which over the years, in an exemplary and pioneering manner, has been one of the first to implement the principle of symbiosis and industrial ecosystem necessary for the implementation of a new production model, based on the concept of circular economy, now at the basis of European and global strategies of sustainable development.
The 'LINEAPELLE DESIGNERS EDITION' event was organised by UNIC - Concerie Italiane and Lineapelle and was sponsored by the Milan City Council.
"Lineapelle Designers Edition celebrates leather. It tells of its beauty and versatility. It demonstrates its ability to arouse emotions, to be transgressive and to position itself as a basic material for the world of fashion, luxury and design. This is why we want to support the creativity of those who use leather in their collections in an exemplary manner. A few seasons ago, we started collaborating with designers and brands, and today we are presenting a dedicated event under the patronage of the City of Milan. We hope that these expressions represent a stimulus for all creative people." - declares Fulvia Bacchi, Lineapelle CEO and UNIC General Manager.

Event Title: 'GREY AREA: A LESSON IN CUSTOMISATION'.

Opening Hours: from 5.00 p.m. to 8.00 - open to the public
Event Title: "OUT OF THE ARK"
Description: A symbiosis, a parallelism between past and present. Froy's geometric and surreal world unites subcultures of our times, past or unwritten stories, and translates them into garments with three-dimensional and vibrant textures. Froy brings to light an installation of ancient workmanship shaping modern and contemporary forms. Imagine an unexpected, dreamlike find, an archaeological site with the remains of an impossible future.
Opening times: from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. - open to the public - from 6 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. - cocktails by invitation
Stylist/Brand: RADICA STUDIO
Event Title: RADICA STUDIO, Act VIII-IX 'MUSTANG'
Description: Sensual, irreverent, precious: Radica Studio's identity speaks of seductive, attention-grabbing pieces that enhance silhouettes and spaces. The classic techniques of leather goods, such as rib-dye, hand-stitching, waxing, and tannery dyeing, are reinterpreted in colours and compositions to emphasise and modernise clean and sensual lines, enhancing the best of Made in Italy.
Opening hours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. - by invitation or accreditation on firstname.lastname@example.org
Stylist/Brand: CRISTIANO BURANI
Event Title: 'NOBODY OWNS ME'
Description: An event that goes beyond the canonical presentations with the intention of involving and informing the public on the great work of research and experimentation carried out for months in order to create the new S/S 2023 Cristiano Burani collection. High craftsmanship and the use of precious materials are still the main protagonists in coherently pursuing an aesthetic vision told within the ultra-contemporary setting of Spazio Lineapelle through live performances, DJ sets and cocktail parties.
Opening hours from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. - by invitation only
