It’s time to seize change

From streetwear to sporty chic, from the ‘80s glamour to trendy creations with unconventional heels, and so on: innovation is in the air. The official launch of the 2018-’19 F/W collections has put in the limelight the hot trends for women’s fashion – chromatic combinations, geometric patterns, variety of materials and the highest elegance. Eye-catching decorative details embellish even the most classic models, livened up by, for example, fur inserts, glittering surfaces, stylish heels studded with shiny crystals. As far as men’s footwear collections are concerned, manufacturing skills and craftsmanship are the main protagonists: elegant shapes, non-slip leather bottoms, art-like treatments on hides featuring the most fascinating nuances and motifs decorating even soles, thus recalling tattoo-making techniques. Furthermore, our “Corner Child” section will provide a special insight on children’s fashion. Interviews, in-depth articles and reports concerning the most prominent exhibitions will be included in this issue, distributed for free to buyers and industry professionals.
