We were at Lineapelle Milano to introduce our new color charts: let’s tell you how it went
The annual winter edition of Lineapelle, one of the most important events in our industry, was held last February 21 to 23.
Born in 1981, Lineapelle has emerged as the most qualified international exhibition about leathers, accessories, components, synthetic fabrics, footwear models, leather goods, clothing and leather furniture. It takes place twice a year at the exhibition center of Milan (in February for summer collections and in September for winter ones), and the distinctive feature in its historical development is its constant primacy in style and quality innovation, making this event essential for global demand.
A universe of 50.000 companies, 1 million workers and a turnover of 115 billion dollars a year turns around Lineapelle. Every year, about 1.100 participants come over from about 40 countries around the world. During the winter edition, just finished, Conceria Stefania and other exhibitors introduced their new color charts for the spring/summer 2018 season.
Hundreds of people came to our stand, including many designers interested in our creations.
The colors we proposed for the next year’s good season are bright and in line with the fashion footwear trends. Shoes are more and more considered as the principal accessory in the (women’s and men’s) outfit and it is, indeed, a pivot for pairings and styles to be created around.
In particular, some new hues (both cold and warm) gained a big success: what they have in common is a strong and lively character. To make an example, we are talking about the blues’ and brilliant purples’ range, as well as the one of reds and oranges, not forgetting a whole series of fluorescent colors that are the real fashion revelation of the last years: relegated to sportswear for too much time, fluo hues recently “invaded” the footwear fashion market. As a result, we have more classical shoes embellished by fluo details and also shoes entirely designed in these colors, with an “out of the crowd” effect for sure.
However, we did not forget who prefers timeless classics, like neutral and pastel colors, that keep on satisfying a significant portion of the demand.
Conceria Stefania has always produced and offered one of the most popular suedes (the so called Velukid) whose smoothness, uniformity and strength have earned the preferences of some of the biggest international brands.
Similarly, the same brands and many other buyers dedicate a particular attention to one other product of ours, collecting a great success both in Italy and abroad: it is our “mirror” leather, with its luster and strenght very hard to match.
