Avant Toi, innovative and avant garde Italian brand, launches its exclusive and first Home collection; hand painting, the iconic feature of the brand, decorates and enhances an infinite composition of blankets, covers, pillows, carpets, tablecloths and many other elements of design. Avant Toi experiments with passion, matching and blending materials to create unique, home-made pieces: needlework of vintage foulards on a light, impalpable knit, patchworks of cloths create colorful carpets with thousands of hues, mixes of furs on felted cloths, jacquard wall hangings in a chenille of silk, cushions and bedspreads in a furry stitch or jacquards which recall blankets of leaves, covers and carpets with rudimental seams. 

The Avant Toi showroom in Via Carlo Botta 8, staged for the launch with the exclusive collection, transformed into the “Avant Toi Home” in the occasion of the 2017 Fuorisalone, which took place earlier this month.

Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale, the brand new trade platform serving the off-price and value retail industry, opened its doors to exhibitors and attendees alike on Tuesday, March 21st, 2017, featuring more than 60 men’s apparel and accessory brands. As the brainchild of industry veterans Arnold and Bruce Zimberg, in cooperation with international trade show organizer Messe Frankfurt, this first-of-its-kind trade show focused on building a business platform for the fastest growing yet under- served segment of the apparel market: off-price retail. 

Over the course of three days, Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale exhibitors showcased a variety of current, past season, and future inventory and made it available to attending buyers at discounted prices. Additionally, select exhibitors provided information on private label services and available FOB factory to retail programs. 

“We’ve curated a tightly edited group of exhibiting brands for our first menswear edition and have been very focused on quality over quantity.” said Bruce Zimberg, Co-founder and Sales Director, Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale. “The biggest challenge off-price retail buyers are facing is repetitiveness across all categories, including menswear. Our ultimate goal is to help these retailers differentiate themselves by introducing them to new upscale brands – both emerging and established.”

The garments are cut and sewn, the seams are entirely sealed by hand with Dyneema re-enforced tapes.

This limited edition is made of 2 sets of 50 items that are garment dyed with 50 color recipes in the Stone Island Colour Laboratory.

The launch of Confindustria Moda, the new federation of fashion, textiles and accessories, representing more than 67 thousand Italian enterprises that generate a turnover in excess of 88 billion euros and give work to over 580 thousand works, was announced today in Milan.

SCAD Fash Museum of Fashion + Film presents "Shoes: Pleasure and Pain," an exhibition organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, that explores the creativity, cultural significance and transformative power of shoes. The exhibition displays more than 200 pairs of shoes, from ancient Egyptian slippers embellished with gold leaf and the seductive signature red soles of Christian Louboutin heels, to cutting-edge designs created by contemporary designers experimenting with new materials and the latest technology. 

In addition to the range of historic footwear, the exhibition also features platform boots worn by Elton John, Princess Diana's shoe lasts, and David Beckham's soccer cleats. Styles by numerous celebrated designers and labels such as Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Nike and Vivienne Westwood, as well as two iconic pairs of shoes from film history — the famous red ballet slippers from the film "The Red Shoes" (1948) and the Swarovski crystal slippers featured in Disney's "Cinderella" (2015) — are also included.

The exhibition is curated around five different themes: ”Transformation," "Status," "Seduction," "Creation" and "Obsession." Designers' sketches, shoemaking materials and historic fashion illustrations provide a deeper understanding of the exhibition's themes. Debuting with the exhibition is "Touching the Sole," a special interactive tactile display that enables visually impaired visitors to engage with replicas of many of the shoes displayed.

Issey Miyake announced the opening of its first flagship store in Italy. Milano has been chosen for the location, and the store will be located in an historic building, Palazzo Reina, at Via Bagutta 12, in the Quadrilatero district. 

Approximately 500m² in size, and spread over the most prominent floors of the Palazzo, it is the first time that Issey Miyake has chosen an historical building for its new flagship store. 

"Design is an act of discovery, making things, making reality, freedom, innovation. Design is work that brings people joy. For me Milano is already the city of all creativity. I am proud to be part of it." Issey Miyake 

The store space is designed by TOKUJIN YOSHIOKA. 

“A unique aesthetic is created when historical townscape and futuristic interior panels come together to express the passage of time. 

We are attracted to a past enriched by layers of history as well as an opaque future not yet realized. The space exists within a 19th century building located near Via Montenapoleone, Milan's sophisticated street famous for historical architecture. It expresses the contrast between history and future showing the many layers of time in the texture of the interior walls juxtaposed with futuristic colored aluminum. 

The floating sculptures of round aluminium are colored like pieces of dyed cloth. The blue, orange and green symbolize the energy of nature, and also delivers a sense of translucency. The essence of design harmonized with technology and handwork is projected into the shop space, reflecting the philosophy of Issey Miyake's creations.”

J.W. Anderson has been selected as Pitti Uomo’s Special Guest for its June 2017 edition and will present on June 14th, its new S/S 2018 collection.

“We have been keeping a careful eye on Jonathan Anderson’s career for several seasons,” says Lapo Cianchi, Pitti Immagine Director of Communications and Events. “Above all, we are drawn to the creativity and eclecticism he expresses in his collections that are further enhanced by high-quality manufacturing and – in menswear -- by undisputable sartorial skill. The way he reinterprets elements from the contemporary art scene and from the youth culture, alternating emotional impact (such as out-of-scale volumes) and transgression that are projected towards anticipating the future leaving little room for nostalgia, is very interesting. And his shows are always surprising, with great communicative strength.”
