Linea Pelle 2012- My Favourite Trends
Linea Pelle 2012: My Favourite Trends
Know Wear
Back in April I was invited by the lovely people from Digital Cake PR to visit Bologna for a few days to attend Linea Pelle – an exhibition of leather and accessories, components, synthetics for footwear, leather goods, garments and forniture. The event takes place twice a year (in April for the summer and October for winter) and retailers from all over the world make pilgrimage to Bologna to spot the latest trends and choose the materials they will use to manufacture in the coming seasons.
I was one of the lucky few to have a look at the trends that will dominate the SS13 seasons. I found that some of our favourite current trends like neon and fluo colours will carry through to next summer. Innovative prints like we saw Balenciaga and Proenza Schouler use for FW12 will become even more prominent trends. Traditional animal fabrics and animal prints – especially snakeskin and crocodile – are also major for SS12.
