 ILM Award 2019
Braun Büffel, Bree and MDLR received awards for their outstanding achievements at the Capitol Offenbach on 7 September


The presentation of the ILM Awards is one of the highlights of the International Leather Goods Fair in Offenbach. This year’s award ceremony did not only honour the crème de la crème. The ILM also celebrated its 70th anniversary with over 300 guests at this glamorous event in the Capitol Offenbach on the evening of 7 September.
With many outstanding contenders, it was not easy for the jury of seven experts to pick the winner. The ILM Award 2019 "Best in Basics" went to the leather manufacturer Braun Büffel. Bree Collection won in the category "Best in Fashion" and the award in the category "Best Newcomer" went to the young company MDLR. Arnd Hinrich Kappe, Managing Director of Messe Offenbach, underlined the importance of the ILM Award: "We are delighted at the extraordinarily high number of entrants. The products submitted clearly demonstrate that creativity, functionality and craftsmanship are alive and well, and highly successful, in our industry."

The winners:

Category Best in Basics: Braun Büffel

The leather manufacturer Braun Büffel won the jury over with its exclusive business bag "Arizona 2.0". The classic men's bag stands out through its soft, full-grain cowhide and perfect workmanship. Sustainability is not just lip service. The credo "made in Germany" is adhered to throughout: from the raw material to the finished product. The leather used comes exclusively from farms in southern Germany. The leather is processed locally in a tannery that attaches particular importance to ecological and sustainable processing methods. The experienced bag makers at the Braun Büffel leather workshop in Kirn, founded in 1887, apply their craftsmanship and pay great attention to detail to produce an outstanding men's collection from this high-quality leather. In his laudatory speech, Dr. Joachim Stoll emphasized: "The combination of sustainably produced premium leather and the traditional craftsmanship of Braun Büffel's fine bag makers makes the "Arizona 2.0" business bag a unique accessory for men that has both style and class.

The nominees were Deuter, Vaude and Braun Büffel.

Category Best in Fashion: Bree Collection

The Bree company convinced the jury with their high-quality, 100% sustainable ladies' handbag "Nature Beauty". The slightly wavy shape of the bag picks up on the fashion theme "saddle bag", one of the very latest trends. The neat design reflects organic shapes, hitting the nerve of a modern generation that is looking for longevity and quality when choosing its products. Alongside the language of form, particular attention is paid to the selection of materials which are exclusively of European origin. For Simone Reiner who gave the laudatory speech, it’s the perfect bag: "We were particularly impressed by the outstanding quality and excellent craftsmanship of the handbag "Nature Beauty”. Functional and aesthetic at the same time, Bree’s "saddle sag" is an eye-catcher and sure to be a favourite that goes with any outfit.”

Nominees were Plinio Visona, von rauten and Bree Collection

Category Best Best Newcomer: MDLR

The newcomer MDLR impressed the jury with its skilful mix of design, function and communication. The young, independent label from Frankfurt am Main designs and produces sporty urban bags and accessories with an intelligent system. All MDLR products are modular and can be combined with click buckles using a high-quality, robust plug-in system. The unisex bags can be put together to suit your taste or requirements. The 100% vegan bags from the MDLR "L-Line" are made of robust nylon in clear colours, catching the fashionable and sporty spirit of the times. In his laudatory speech, Loimi Brautmann put it in a nutshell: "MDLR has its roots in the urban street style scene and reflects the look & feel of this world perfectly. The products stand out for their intelligent design and communication perfectly tailored to the target group. In short: MDLR connects."

Nominees were Airpaq, KeyKeepa and MDLR

The ILM Award

The ILM Award carries prize money of 6,000 euros. The winners in the categories Best in Basics, Best in Fashion and Best Newcomer are selected by a jury of experts. The jury for the ILM Award 2019 included Loimi Brautmann (Urban Media Project, Offenbach), Prof. Madeleine Häse (Pforzheim University, Faculty of Design) Kathrin Hempel (Atelier "Die Taschenmacherin", Alzenau), Simone Reiner (Textilwirtschaft, Deutscher Fachverlag, Frankfurt), Dr. Joachim Stoll (Leder Stoll, Frankfurt), Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimitrios Tsatsas (Tsatsas, Frankfurt)

Assocalzaturifici - Trade Association for Italian Shoemakers (Z1290)
THE ITALIAN FOOTWEAR INDUSTRY:
IN THE FIRST HALF OF 2019 EXPORTS INCREASED BY +7.1% IN VALUE


Siro Badon, Chair of Assocalzaturifici: “To get through this difficult period we need to invest in ourselves and in our skills. It is essential to train new professionals that are able to innovate Italian footwear manufacturing companies”

Exports are the only positive note within the sector, even though volumes decreased. On the employment front the number of companies and the industry workforce continue to fall: -119 footwear manufacturers (including both industrial and craft operators), which amounts to a -2.6% reduction, and 492 less workers (-0.7%) compared to December 2018.

Italian footwear appeals to foreign markets: in the first six months of 2019 Italian exports for the sector increased significantly by +7.1% in value (the average price is now 47.55 Euro/pair, +8.2%). This figure comes from the report on the Italian Footwear Industry–First half of 2019 – that was prepared by the Confindustria Moda Research Centre for Assocalzaturifici. The snapshot to emerge from the sectoral report reveals that, despite the performance of exports, certain difficulties still remain due primarily to chronically weak domestic consumption - after a decade of slow decline, in the first half of this year the reduction in household spending intensified (-3.7% in quantity, with much more negative trends for traditional retail). To this we must add the climate of uncertainty at an international level: from the probable continuation of trade tensions and protectionist approaches, to the slowdown of major economies (foremostly China and Germany), through to the lack of a recovery in key markets for certain footwear manufacturing districts. These include Russia where, after a trend reversal in 2018, we are once again seeing reductions of over 15%, and then we have the uncertainties over the timing and mechanics of Brexit, with the danger of a “no deal” still looming large. “To get through this difficult period we need to invest in ourselves and in our skills – states Siro Badon, Chair of Assocalzaturifici –. It is essential to train new professionals that are able to innovate Italian footwear manufacturing companies and fully espouse our tradition and the standards of excellence that characterise our production. Training, combined with targeted internationalisation strategies and important trade fair events like Micam, is the concrete response through which we can kick-start the process of relaunching Italian footwear and confirm our global leadership. The sector is crucial for our economy and can be a driver for Italian industry as a whole".

The evolution of foreign sales, that was positive overall and led to a significant consolidation in the trade surplus for the first 6 months of the year (+10.7%), actually conceals acute differences in company performances. Indeed, alongside outstanding results for many international luxury brands, which a large number of companies operate for as subcontractors (as demonstrated by the significant increases in trade flows towards Switzerland - a traditional logistics and distribution hub for major brands - and France), there is also a fairly significant number of companies still struggling to get back on track and experience positive trends. There is no shortage of expanding markets (with double-figure increases in value for North America and the Far East), but these increases are often accompanied by reductions in volume (of almost -4% for the US and Canada; more limited decreases, -1.1%, for countries in the Far East, with Japan faring poorly).

Specifically, production fell by -2.3% in volume, although smaller companies in the sample that was surveyed (i.e. those with turnover of less than 15 million) experienced reductions of -4.5%, while in terms of domestic consumption the only segment to perform positively was sports shoes/sneakers (+0.8% quantity and +2.9% in value), with significant decreases for “classic” footwear for men and women (-9.5% and -8.3% in volume respectively). With regard to sales channels, online sales continue to increase (+10.3% in volume and +17.3% in expenditure), accounting for 11% of the total volume of sales in the period, while performance was poor for traditional retail (-11% in pairs sold, with a reduction of almost 16% in expenditure) and itinerant traders (with reductions in the region of -14%).

In terms of employment, the reduction in the number of companies and the industry workforce continued: the first half of 2019 closed with a balance of - 119 footwear manufacturers (including both industrial and craft operators), which amounts to a -2.6% reduction, and 492 less workers (-0.7%) compared to December 2018. These reductions are even more severe if we also factor in - in addition to footwear manufacturers - producers of components (-75 companies and -493 workers). Therefore, on the whole, we have 194 less companies and 985 less workers compared to the end of 2018. In geographical terms, there were reductions in the number of companies for all seven of the main footwear manufacturing regions, with the sole exception of Lombardy (+13 units). In terms of the workforce, there were increases in Tuscany (+117 workers) and Puglia. As was the case in 2018, Marche is the region that fared worst, in terms of both production units (-95) and number of workers (-1164). Veneto ended the first half of the year with a reduction of 30 companies, considering footwear manufacturers and component producers, and a small reduction in its workforce (-20 workers compared to the end of 2018). The number of active companies in Emilia Romagna and Campania fell by 12 and 6 units respectively, with a corresponding loss of 149 and 128 jobs. The workforce in Lombardy fell by 57 units (-0.8%). Finally, in the first 6 months of the year authorised wage support hours for companies in the leather supply chain increased by 27.1% to almost 4 million hours.

MICAM PRESENTS A PREVIEW OF FASHION TRENDS FOR AUTUMN-WINTER 2020/2021


MICAM, the footwear industry’s key international trade event, reaffirms its role as a fashion forecaster thanks to research carried out by WGSN (an English agency specializing in trend scouting) on the trends expected to dominate next year’s autumn-winter season. Considered comfort, inspired by soft, comfortable materials for an indoor-outdoor look that pushes dress-code boundaries; Tech-tility, which focuses on the relationship between actual and virtual reality and uses tech materials and innovation to create futuristic accessories; Reconstructed Legacy, which looks to the past to find new solutions for the future, with a strong focus on sustainability.

1//Considered comfort

 


Women/kids

Considered Comfort explores the new relationship between fashion and the home: multi-purpose accessories are becoming more and more popular (just think about slippers, which are now considered ‘cool’ enough to wear outside), and comfort is paramount. We will be seeing a lot of soft, natural and tactile materials, and shapes that cocoon and cuddle. The concept of hybrid footwear will be explored, such as blending slipper shapes with something more premium, inspired by ballerina shoes.

Men/kids

Considered Comfort reflects a shift in customer expectations, with consumers becoming increasingly focused on their choice of clothing. Whether at home, at work or for an evening out, the important thing is to be comfortable and well-dressed. With the suit becoming more casual and streetwear more stylish, the result is a redefined concept of “informal elegance”. Active and athleisure trends continue to influence footwear: the by now ubiquitous hybrid shoes are updated with futuristic trims and pop-colour accents. Meanwhile, more traditional colours combined with modern styles create a look that has broad appeal and suits everyone.

2//Tech-tility



Women/kids

The dividing lines between real and virtual, authentic and false, truth and fantasy are becoming increasingly blurred. Tech-tility explores the way the clothing industry approaches this issue. The more time we spend in front of the screen, the harder it is to distinguish between what is real and what is digital, and more importantly, we are not interested in understanding the difference. The colours will be those of the digital world, chosen as much as for how they appear on the screen as how they look in real life; innovation and high-tech materials will be at the centre of attention with ‘smart’ fabrics that respond to movement and regulate body temperature. This evolution will give our clothes a more fantastical look; just think of sportswear’s futuristic or gender-neutral styles, structured activewear that re-shapes the body or the conceptual outerwear and sneakers that wouldn’t look out of place on the moon.

Men/kids

In this new scenario, the everyday will become more extreme and tech more tactile: it’s time to rethink design conventions. Men’s fashions have always included a mix of different designs, and with its blend of real and virtual the Tech-tility trend stretches such concepts even further and becomes crucial for this market. While younger customers are now discovering tailoring, innovations in textiles and techniques will make even the most formal office attire easier and more comfortable to wear. The trend explores designs, materials and colours that stand out on video screens. Print stories are inspired by glitches and digital debris while iridescent dichroic details create ephemeral and otherworldly effects. Shoes with sporty trims explode with fluorescent colours, as a constant reminder of the trend’s “active” origins.

3//Reconstructed Legacy



Women/Kids

In periods of instability, the past takes on an irresistible allure. Reconstructed Legacy explores how clothing will reinterpret the past in the light of the future, but in a more sustainable way. We can expect classic, preppy styles to be energised by a more edgy, even punky, streetwear look, with materials and details taken from the past and reinterpreted with tech fabrics and more modern shapes. Underpinning these new designs will be an intrinsic sense of value and history. The point will be to do better, and not more, because sustainability is becoming an increasingly urgent issue for all of us.

Men/Kids

With the rise of the digital culture, as far as the fashion industry is concerned the past has always represented a stable point of reference in a continually changing world. But in 2021, even the traditions of the past will be brought up-to-date. Male consumers love buying products with a history and the Reconstructed legacy trend panders to this preference: classic models reworked to adapt to more modern life-styles that respect nature. Great attention is given to well-designed, familiar and eco-friendly accessories. The use of artisanal techniques not only for formal clothing but also luxury streetwear, gives the latter a timeless appeal and, potentially, turns it into a classic that will last forever.

MIDO - Eyewear & Ophthalmology Equipment Show - Milan Italy (Z1287)

THE ROAD TO SUSTAINABILITY
 MIDO introduces the Stand up for green competition, for the most sustainable stand


MIDO continues its journey on the road to sustainability with Stand up for green, the competition that recognises those who plan and create their own stand by adopting eco-friendly criteria, inviting all exhibitors at the 2020 edition to take part. The winner will receive an award at the MIDO fair during an evening event organised to celebrate the event’s 50th anniversary, and will star in a major communication project and website space, where a new dedicated area can be viewed (https://www.mido.com/en/sustainability).

The jury panel will consider the following criteria when awarding the prize: general sustainability of the stand, the level of innovation, originality, and the ability to convey a positive message to the public about the importance of environmentally-friendly choices for the future of humankind and the planet.

To register, exhibitors are asked to fill in and send the application form (available also on the website) with a description of the stand, the materials used, the approaches taken, the reasons behind the sustainable choices, and the goals for improvement in 2021.

The competition joins the already packed programme of events to celebrate the 50th anniversary of MIDO, the international trade fair dedicated to leading international eyewear brands which has acted as a go-to event for the industry since 1970 both in Italy and abroad.

MIDO 2020 constitutes the first milestone on the road to sustainability, which will be celebrated at the fair with training and information events for visitors and exhibitors alike.

"We strongly believe that a commitment to sustainability is now a categorical necessity which everyone, companies and individuals alike, must adopt. We must, and I hope soon, be amazed more by those who are not eco-friendly than by those who are. Today, I am truly proud to announce that our commitment, after taking the first initial steps, is boosted by such an important initiative as the Stand up for green award, which as a priority hopes to incentivise our exhibitors to act by applying sustainable methods," said Giovanni Vitaloni, President of MIDO.

Who will get the gold?
Application period for the ISPO Award 2020 has begun
For the ninth time, ISPO honors outstanding products and services of the sports industry with the renowned

For the ninth time, ISPO honors outstanding products and services of the sports industry with the renowned ISPO Award. Companies from the entire sporting goods industry can submit their new products until December 6, 2019. The internationally staffed expert jury judges the products according to a strictly defined catalog of criteria. The well-established seal of quality helps the featured companies attract special attention for their business.


• Seal of quality for the sporting goods industry with a strong external impact

• Registration deadline December 6, 2019


ISPO, the leading international sports business network, presents the ISPO Award every year in recognition of the top products in the sports industry. In doing so, an international and neutral jury of experts made up of media representatives, retailers, athletes, consumers and material experts review several hundred submissions according to certain criteria, such as design, function, sustainability and innovation. David Badalec, responsible for the ISPO Award, explains: “It is the trendsetting, innovative products in particular that carry the sporting goods market forward – and they often find a special way to make sports more enjoyable. This is one aspect we pay special attention to.” Companies from the entire sports industry can submit products – regardless whether they are exhibiting at the ISPO trade fairs.

A prize with a big impact

For many years, the ISPO Award has been the seal of quality for innovation, quality and functionality with a high external impact in various segments - from health & fitness to outdoor and snow sports. Winners benefit from the award in several ways: Specialized retailers focus on products that have been distinguished and add them to their upcoming product ranges. For consumers, the award serves as a reason for buying the product, and journalists use it as a source of information when covering the next season’s highlights.

The winners also receive a comprehensive communications and benefits package. This includes the ISPO Award label, hangtags and stickers for the product award at the point of sale (POS) along with product features and extensive media presence on the ispo.com news platform, all of which generate additional marketing opportunities with greater external impact at sporting goods retailers and with consumers.

Application period with an early-bird bonus

Companies can benefit from special early-bird rates when submitting their products by November 6, 2019. Exhibitors at ISPO Munich and ISPO Beijing pay only an additional 125 Euro (instead of 325 Euro) per product submission with the early bird rate, and 200 Euro (instead of 450 Euro) with the regular rate.

Award ceremony at ISPO Munich

The ISPO Awards are presented at ISPO Munich from January 26 through 29, 2020. All “Products of the Year” and the “Gold Winner” from official ISPO Munich exhibitors will also be presented during ISPO Munich and ISPO Beijing (February 12 through 15, 2020).

More information on the ISPO Award is available online.

About the ISPO Award Over the course of its long history, the ISPO Award has established itself as the seal of quality for the sporting goods industry. The award is a year-round guide to products for the coming season and is aimed at retailers, journalists and end customers. At specialist retailers, for example, the seal of quality is identifiable as a label on the products and visible via point-of-sale systems. The international jury is made up of athletes, retailers, journalists, designers and consumers who choose the best sports products after in-depth discussions and a secret vote. The best innovations in each segment are named “Product of the Year” by the specialist jury. The ISPO Award is presented across a total of 80 different categories, reflecting the wide variety of products of the sporting goods industry. The award-winning products can be viewed all year round at ispo.com.

DaTE - fashion eyewear without prescription - Firenze Italy (Z1274)

Next edition: September 19-21, 2020

DaTE LIVES UP TO EXPECTATIONS, DRAWING SELECT EXHIBITORS AND A DISCERNING AUDIENCE TO FLORENCE IN A QUEST FOR THE AVANT-GARDE

Spring event announced to air ideas and insights on the “culture” of international eyewear



The eyewear of the future showcase – the 7th edition of DaTE and the 4th held in Florence – draws to a close. The organizers’ expectations were met and exceeded as trade professionals and select buyers lined up to see the latest eyewear innovations, with the intention of diversifying their own product lines, while scoping out design and avant-garde ingenuity. The array of 121 carefully selected exhibitors led to an increase in the number of overseas visitors. What they saw was research and innovation, experimentation with shapes and colors, as well as a focus on sustainability and materials.

Visitors and exhibitors also used social media to spread the word. During the three days of the show, there were 100,000+ views of content and more than 43,000 people reached through Facebook and Instagram. User engagement was off the charts as they produced, on Instagram alone, more than 3,000 content items, between stories and feeds, using the official hashtags for the event.

Parallel to its B2B event held each Fall, DaTE has decided to forge a new path in the coming year by organizing an international meeting in Milan in the Spring of 2020 that will focus on culture and the world of eyewear. “The idea is to offer an opportunity to share ideas about design, innovation and technology in the realm of eyewear.
