Multi-functional leather and fur
The appeal of fur garments is everlasting, able to win over, day after day, a very diverse audience – including the younger generations –, that enjoys the most elegant solutions as well as playful, creative nuances. The myth and opulence of both short- and long-haired furs is enhanced by natural, authentic colours that put in the limelight the beauty of the material, embellished by eye-catching motifs and ton-sur-ton effects. Creative solutions are conceived to meet the tastes of all fashion-loving girls, including models made with soft and warm shearling, enlivened by bright shades and charming patterns. As far as male fashion is concerned, “multi-functional” has become the keyword, one of the main trends for the 2018-’19 Fall/Winter season showcased on Milan’s catwalks and at the latest edition of Pitti, as confirmed by the great variety of jackets, waistcoats, double-breasted coats in Napa leather, crocodile skin, shearling as well as elegant silver fox furs. Last but not least, this issue will feature updates concerning the leading industry trade shows and the calendar of the upcoming events.

Fur takes it all / A wide range of interpretations Fall/Winter 2017-2018
Pastel tones and furs available in a wide range of solutions: long-haired, inlaid, classic and unstructured…Acknowledged in the past as a true luxury icon, a high-end piece of clothing, fur is experiencing a true makeover acquiring a new identity: as a matter of fact, it is the undisputed protagonist of the 2017-2018 Fall/Winter season, succeeding in winning over the heart of all women, independently of the age brackets, as well as in arousing the interest of a male audience. Both outerwear garments and accessories match refined and simpler features, giving life to truly one-of-a-kind creations. A combination of different nuances stands out in long-haired models; when used for long waistcoats, contrasting textures are put at the forefront; a chromatic palette favoring white and delicate pastel tones is perfect for a romantic and refined version; elegant brown shades and spotted patterns are chosen for more seductive solutions: in other words, fur wants to be the absolute star in both clothing and accessories collections. There are also fancy models featuring geometric patterns and colour waves that merge with floral motifs and highly creative inlay works. Always highly fascinating, fur never ceases to amaze, managing to combine luxury with casual style, male and female details, in a crescendo of visual and tactile emotions.
