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.”

Exploring windswept beaches, unspoiled woods and imposing rocks and discovering rare wildlife and the unique heritage of the Inuit and Aleut people, the new episode of Stories by Parajumpers is dedicated to Kiliii Yuan, the founder and owner of Seawolf Kayak, a company that started as a survival school for ancient skills and that celebrates the traditional art of building skin-on-frame kayaks. 

But the beauty of Yuan’s handmade kayaks lies not only in the celebration of heritage, but also in his dedication and passion for state-of-the-art craftsmanship. In order to satisfy the needs of the modern-day adventurer, Yuan took up the challenge to build complex yet easily manoeuvrable shapes of kayaks that are both functional and desirable. All the kayak models undergo extensive quality tests and are each designed with a particular set of needs in mind, such as the functional requirements of long expeditions, fishing, surfing and exploration trips. The five steps of building a kayak seem simple at first glance, and yet they require a high-quality craftsmanship and precision that ensures a lightweight, high tech and long lasting design of premium quality. 

“I spent the majority of my life chasing after my culture and my culture’s tradition,” explains Yuan, whose mission was inspired by his Grandmother’s stories and who dedicates his life to the Inuit and Aleut people from the far north of North America, Greenland and eastern Eurasia ever since. “My ultimate aim is to learn how indigenous people understand nature as a way of life.” he continues, adding that his aim resulted from the willingness to reconnect with the land of his ancestors, while teaching others how to build a kayak in a traditional way, thus making the magical moments of kayaking happen.

The Premiere Classe Tuileries and Paris sur Mode Tuileries trade shows closed their doors last week on a positive note, with a steadily growing crowd which saw the return of a number of Japanese, South Korean and American buyers, as well as some big orders from Russian and Middle-Eastern buyers.

 

The quality of the visitors increased, confirming the coherence of the strategic choices made for the Tuileries trade shows:

a more selective offer concentrated in Place de la Concorde at Paris Sur Mode Tuileries has won over a high quality crowd, keen to discover the new brands showcased in the spirit of a quintessentially Parisian showroom.

Thanks to its inspiring choice of designers, Premiere Classe has affirmed the variety and legibility of the offer and an efficient set up design.

Supporting the common theme of «Escale à Paris», the two trade shows have chosen to give the spotlight to Paris’s creative spirit as the fashion capital of the world, catalysing the creative scene for international professionals, buyers, trend offices and media… Paris was inspiring, stunning and dynamic.

In conclusion, more than ever, reunion and creativity for this second session seem to be imperative for Paris to maintain its international appeal. As a continuation of the success of this reunion, WSN Développement, the organiser of the two trade shows is already working on the next edition in October in the Jardin des Tuileries and Place de la Concorde (Thursday, September 28th to Sunday, October 1st).

The meticulously organized, modest closet in which Sara Berman (1920–2004)—an immigrant who traveled from Belarus to Palestine to New York—kept her all-white apparel and accessories both contained her life and revealed it. The artists Maira and Alex Kalman (who are also Berman's daughter and grandson) have recreated the closet and its contents as an art installation. Opened on March 6th at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the exhibition 'Sara Berman's Closet' represents Berman's life from 1982 to 2004, when she lived by herself in a small apartment in Greenwich Village. With its neatly arranged stacks of starched and precisely folded clothing, the closet will be presented as a small period room in dialogue with The Met's recently installed Worsham-Rockefeller Dressing Room from 1882, which will feature clothing from the 1880s of the type that Arabella Worsham, a wealthy art patroness, might have worn.  Despite vast differences of scale and ornament, and the separation of 100 years, the two rooms show there were similarities between the life stories of Sara Berman and Arabella Worsham (c. 1851–1924). Both began as women of limited means who, by their own ingenuity, created new lives for themselves in New York City.

The 200 m2 concept store developing on two levels is designed by essential and contemporary spaces, where every single item is enhanced. A contrast of matte and glossy surfaces takes its origin from granite, iron and wood selected for the traditional black interiors. 

The new store lies on a continuum with the shop opened in October 2016 in Ginza, Tokyo after an idea of Japanese designer Tetsuya Chihara. 

“The opening of the new store at Via della Spiga is another exciting challenge for RUCO LINE to face - we'll propose an even wider range of products for men and women paying a strong attention to style, quality and accuracy”, explains RUCO LINE's CEO Marco Santucci.

Messe Frankfurt has joined forces with fashion industry veterans Arnold and Bruce Zimberg to launch Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale, a first-of-its-kind trade show, which will offer global retailers the opportunity to meet with brand-name apparel, accessory, and footwear companies all on one platform.

Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale will be the newest addition to Messe Frankfurt’s global portfolio of textile trade shows under the established Texpertise network, which currently includes 50 trade shows around the world, over 19,000 exhibitors and half of a million international visitors annually. Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale will also expand Messe Frankfurt’s New York City show offering, which currently includes Texworld USA, Apparel Sourcing USA and Home Textiles Sourcing Expo, to 4 unique concepts and 7 total shows each year.

The first edition will take place at the Jacob Javits Convention Center’s River Pavilion, the 4th level exhibition hall boasting over 45,000 square feet, abundant natural light and sweeping views of the Hudson River. Boulevard Prêt-à-Sale’s event layout and ambience will capture the energy of downtown New York City, with impactful visuals and a modern booth design in which merchandise will be the focus.

An exclusive cocktail party, animated by DJ sets Natasha Slater and enriched from installation art dedicated to the preview of the FW 17/18 collection has signed the return of the brand in the heart of Milan with a large multifunctional space overlooking the famous Piazza San Babila.

White and black are the predominant colors that form the basis of the Frankie Morello collections ensuring exhibition spaces maximum mimetic skills that will make them perfect, season after season, to absorb and enhance the character and the mood outfit meant to be protagonists.

A language in black marble marquinia, material with a shiny surface with white veins in contrast, creates the illusion of a walkway, reinforced by continuous projections of the brand parades realized through a particular LED technology.

ISKO I-SKOOL, the competition created by ISKO, global leader in denim production and in textile innovation, along with CREATIVE ROOM, its Italian style and design think-thank, will confirm for the fourth year in a row its global potential in the education and specialization of young talents, again with its two main application fields: on one hand the Denim Design Award, launching now and dedicated to fashion students, and on the other the Denim Marketing Award, organized for marketing students. Once again, the most talented students on a global scale will have the outstanding opportunity to access the one-of-a-kind fashion network and professional expertise made available by the ISKO I-SKOOL project, with the possibility to be awarded with prestigious internships and mentions within the industry and beyond.

This edition’s creative theme is ‘Genderful’: a celebration of the new and inclusive ways to conceive the multiplicity of models of self expression, that are now overtaking normative gender categories for a promotion of new and evolving forms of identity. Young designers are asked to design one outfit for two different directions:

- From unisex to multisex: both contemporary men and women in order to create a new gender category, multisex.

- Identity beyond gender: create a totally new imagine of ourselves 

“GENDERFUL will be a must-have topic for the future: we believe in cross-fertilization as a way to anticipate trends and revolutionize style and fashion”, explains Lucietti.

Yuna Yang’s F/W 17 collection shows that “light shines brighter in the darkness.” She features both looks with bold prints and dancing colors and looks that play with chiaroscuro, such as dark velvet and light fabric. Women protesting in the streets of South Korea, the US Women’s March and elsewhere inspired Yuna Yang. With the F/W 2017 runway show, Yuna Yang celebrates women who make their social and political voices heard “the power of one person holding a candle.” 

Social and political movements have always expressed their inner light through fashion, whether suffragettes or hippies. YUNA YANG’s F/W 17 collection pays homage to people who hold on to hope and belief in shadowed times.

Guess is launching an important strategic repositioning of MARCIANO GUESS under the new name Marciano Los Angeles. The goal is to open up new market opportunities, further expand the brand potential and position the brand in the fashion industry's top group.

The new focus is deliberately aimed at demanding, fashion-conscious customers. The new brand name Marciano Los Angeles refers to the origins of the brand in the Californian metropolis.

From the A/W 2017 collection, this new positioning will create a fashionable and trend-oriented collection with a more balanced price structure. A collection line should serve as a point of entry with basic travels and combine elegant styles with interesting materials. This more affordable collection segment is offered next to a higher-quality premium line.

In addition to North America and Europe, the brand strategy also seeks to penetrate previously untapped markets such as Russia, Turkey and Asia.

The 83rd edition of theMICAM, at the Fiera Milano (Rho) from 12th to 15th February, will present exhibitors and trade visitors with a new concept and look.

A structural transformation that was already underway during the last edition but which has now been fully completed and takes the form of a new concept for pavilions 1 and 3 and various modern elements that represent a marked change with respect to past editions. Larger and more functional areas to facilitate interaction between buyers and exhibitors and a conceptual evolution made even more alluring and fashion-oriented. 

A change in image that is expressed most vividly in the new publicity campaign which has chosen the “Divine Comedy” to announce theMICAM’s new course which will have as its leitmotif the three canticles of Dante’s poem. A three- year long journey which starts in this edition in the circles of Hell, with the spotlight on the capital sin of “Lust”, followed by Seduction in September and continuing next year in “Purgatory” and ending in 2019 bathed in the bright light of “Paradise”. 

Another of the new entries at this 83rd edition is the Emerging Designer Area in Pav. 1 on the edge of the Fashion Square: a space entirely dedicated to emerging Italian and international designers and an indication of theMICAM’s desire to stay ahead of the game by nurturing new talent and potential future leaders in the footwear sector. 

Full rein is also given to the creativity of young students. At stand F02 in Pav. 1, top training schools specialising in the footwear sector will discuss the new aspects of their courses and how best to prepare to meet the challenges of producing and marketing quality footwear.
