Bologna, April 3rd – 5th 2012, is the setting for LINEAPELLE, the international leather, fabrics, accessories and components exhibition.
On display will be the collections for Summer 2013 and the Winter selections, presented by more than 1,000 exhibitors from 42 different countries.
Despite 2012 getting off to a rocky start based on caution and unexpected tension levels regarding raw materials, demand and supply at LINEAPELLE, involving 110 countries around the world, is still looking confident, backed by an unsurpassed ability for technological and stylistic innovation, as well as high erformance levels when it comes to quality.
Exports are having an increasingly greater effect, and the most active markets are Asia and North America.
Summer 2013, as anticipated by Anteprima (Milan) and Trend Selection (New York), is still focused on the classic look. Materials are pretty yet plain, with pale, reassuring colours, and a few touches of iridescence,lightness and softness. The Trend Area will include thousands of samples in the trendiest of lines: Luce, Réve, Mud, Han-Nari, Festival de los colores, Nostalgie.
Also worth mentioning here is that fact that the extensive range of side events.
Finally, there will be a large number of bloggers at LINEAPELLE, both inside and out the exhibition centre, who will be reporting on this crowded and intense international gathering.
