LINEAPELLE 99 BRINGS 13,000 VISITORS TO MILAN AND DEFINES THE NEW NORMALITY
Over 13,000 visitors and the great desire to open the doors to a new normality.
The 99th edition of Lineapelle closed with a reassuring balance sheet,
held at Fieramilano Rho from 22 to 24 February 2022.
The new normality of a market reacts to pandemic complexities and war concerns. The horizon was defined by the 99th edition of Lineapelle, the most crucial business experience for supplying leather, materials, accessories, components for fashion and luxury. More than 960 exhibitors (distributed in 6 pavilions) from 31 countries welcomed more than 13,000 buyers, stylists, and creative consultants to their stands, offering a reassuring and long-awaited sign of vitality to the entire supply chain, despite the awareness of the forced absence of Asian visitors. Highlights included entries from France, Spain, the United States, Turkey, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Portugal.
Selection, quality, service
"This edition of Lineapelle, which presented the trends for Spring Summer 2023 - comments the president of Lineapelle, Gianni Russo - confirmed its dominant role as a reference point in the exhibition context of the fashion & luxury industry and well represented an increasingly selective market, oriented towards the search for maximum quality and service". These latter characteristics have been translated into the search for solutions based on the desire for a "return to freedom", but also the rediscovery of nature, beauty, quality and durability. Lineapelle 99 thus offered a cross-section of this "new world", where fashion and style retake the stage.
A fair within a fair
All the events - a real fair within the fair - were very well attended and enriched the contents of Lineapelle 99 with an essential innovative vision in a green perspective. They were starting from A New Point of Materials, the second edition of the revolutionary project that allows knowing the concrete green journey of leathers, textile materials, and technologies from responsible innovation. There was great interest in the samples of leathers, materials and accessories for summer 2023 exhibited in the 3 Trend Areas and featured in the customary and eagerly awaited in-depth seminars. The spotlight, with a high level of interaction and social sharing, was on the Shift to Regenative Mobility project, the result of 2 years of collaboration between Lineapelle and Hyundai Transys, which led to the development of a concept car with leather interiors, a futuristic example of "regenerative mobility". Finally, the Leather and its Circularity space was also a success, showcasing the most important business projects linked to the circular path of leather and Italian manufacturing.
The second edition of Mipel Lab
Great success also for the second edition of MIPEL Lab, the exhibition and digital concept dedicated to leather goods sourcing promoted by Assopellettieri and Lineapelle."We close with success and satisfaction the second edition of MIPEL Lab, which, at this point, represents an international reference point for anyone who wants to produce luxury leather goods - comments the president of Assopellettieri, Franco Gabbrielli -. I want to thank personally and on behalf of our association, the ICE Agency and MAECI (Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation) and, in particular, the ICE President Carlo Ferro, for understanding and sharing such an important project for the support and promotion at the international level of a supply chain of excellence such as that of leather production. Moreover, the partnership with Lineapelle has once again proved to be a winning one, and we are ready to follow them to New York, London, and Shanghai in the name of this synergy".
