THEONEMILANO: IT'S ALWAYS WINTER SOMEWHERE…”


Italo Rota and Margherita Palli, designers of
THEONEMILANO at @fieramilanocity from 20 to 23 February

The #7 edition of TheOneMilano is on its way, with the exhibition areas of fieramilanocity designed by two internationally famous names: the first is Italo Rota, the architect who has created grand pavilions for world Expos (the next one will be the Italian pavilion at the Dubai 2020 Expo), museums, exhibitions and boutiques, and who is celebrated for his architecture that tells a story. 
The second is a set designer of important theatre shows in Italy and around the world (from the Venice Biennale to the Piccolo Teatro in Milan, from Salzburg to Brussels and Tokyo), of art exhibitions and of visionary displays, such as the ones from Milan Fashion Week featuring masks on the Rinascente store front, and cascading fabrics in Piazza della Scala in Milan.

And storytelling is the starting point of the project for pavilions 3 and 4 in Via Scarampo in Milan, offering a view of the urban and cosmopolitan world of the great metropolises, a visual, cultural and aesthetic melting pot that perfectly sums up a message like TheOneMilano's message, which is based on the same principles of communication.
The concept is a powerful and well-defined one that aims right at the "core" of the exhibition: Its always Winter somewhere… 
making an explicit reference to the great circularity of the modern world, where physical and cultural distances no longer exist, creating a system that has no rigidly defined seasons anymore. 
For TheOneMilano this is the next step in the concepts introduced by the previous exhibitions, with the February 2019 exhibition set in a winter garden for example, and September's seeing the launch of the "seasonless" concept, with garments that are no longer bound by rigid seasonality, making them modern and versatile in the broadest sense.

Today, this has been moved up a gear with something revolutionary. With the help of Rota and Palli the exhibition areas will be completely redesigned, the aisles will become avenues, the stands buildings telling a story and full of people, and the product areas will be joined together by elements and a design that has a powerful communicative impact. Giant constructions, winter trees and snow globes will be the stand-out features of this edition, an exhibition destined to be truly unforgettable.

All the areas will converge on a new meeting place: the Piazza del Fare, where events will be held, such as presentations and in-depth looks at the various forms of the "Made in Italy" manufacturing skills that are the envy of the whole world.  So the exhibition is turned into a colourful metropolis, a new place to meet up where different materials, colours and sounds mix together to create new imperfect harmony.
The emotional experience takes its inspiration from Milan and the great international metropolises that are reflected in the accomplished and lively image that has been created. TheOneMilano no longer has a single colour theme, but one that takes in all the colours from streets around the world, as can be seen in the new image (a ONE composed of pixels, signs and skylines), announcing this wonderful world of ours in glorious Technicolor, with the kind of storytelling that isn't intended to make it seem fraudulently perfect, but one that is overflowing with industrious energy.

TheOneMilano, a hub for top-end feminine prêt-à-porter, will take place from 20 to 23 February 2020 in Milan in pavilions 3 and 4 at fieramilanocity.


 
 
 
 
ILM - Leather Goods & Accessories Show - Offenbach Germany (Z1305)

ILM - Communication. Know-how. Collections.


The leather industry will be getting together again between February 29 and March 2, 2020 at the International Leather Goods Fair in Offenbach. When the ILM Winter Styles opens its doors, around 300 international exhibitors will present their collections for Autumn/Winter 2020/21, meaning that once again the International Leather Goods Fair is fully booked - down to every last corner.

All the important German and international brands are represented at the ILM. The product range includes everything from bags, small leather goods and accessories through to luggage, umbrellas and school items. This variety is reflected not only in the elegantly designed stands, but also in the ILM Runway Shows, stylishly choreographed by Bettina von Bassewitz. The two shows "Bag World" and "Travel World” are a great source of inspiration for the specialist trade.

Visitors to the "Concept Square” can also expect to find plenty of inspiration and innovation. This area, which celebrated its successful première at the last fair, gives start-ups the opportunity to present their creations in a good light. "The ILM is the most important date in the calendar of the bags, accessories and luggage segments. But we offer much more than just good products. We also focus on communication and meetings," said Arnd Hinrich Kappe, Managing Director of Messe Offenbach. With this aim in mind, more talks have been planned and they are being supplemented by well-informed panel discussions on various topics related to the trade. But there is another very important factor for Mr Kappe: “Last but not least, the personal exchange between exhibitors and visitors is crucial to the success of a trade fair.” At the after work parties held in the trade fair foyer on Saturday and Sunday evenings, there is plenty of opportunity for lively discussions among the industry insiders.

Opening times:
February 29 to March 2, 2020, daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (trade visitors only)

Framework programme:
Spring/ summer 2021 Fashion Forecast at 10 a.m. on Sunday, March 1, 2020,
After Work Parties at 6 p.m. on February 29 and March 1, 2020
Daily: Talks, panel discussions and Runway Shows

Prices/ fair catalogue:
Day ticket: EUR 12
3-day ticket: EUR 18
Tickets may be purchased online at www.ilm-offenbach.de after prior registration.
The fair catalogue can be ordered from Messe Offenbach about two weeks before the fair for a dispatch/handling charge. The catalogue is available free of charge at the trade fair.


 
 
 
 
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 AS INTERNATIONAL FOOTWEAR AMBASSADOR BRINGING ITALIAN KNOW-HOW TO CHINA

Official Sponsor of the MonteNapoleone Gala Dinner and organiser of a special meeting focusing on footwear trends, MICAM launches new initiatives targeting the vast Chinese market



Milan, 20th November 2019 - Not just a chance to present Italian brands to Chinese buyers, but a unique opportunity offering the Chinese market a complete overview of the international footwear industry.

MICAM Milano introduces two special initiatives targeting China: along with other brands representing Italian style and know-how, it will be an official sponsor of the MonteNapoleone Gala Dinner organised by the MonteNapoleone Fashion District on November 20 at Bulgari Hotel in Shanghai, while on November 21 it will be promoting a special open day for guests and press, offering them a complete preview of next season’s footwear trends and a surprising teaser hinting at what will be in store at the next Micam.

MICAM Milano is an international event promoted by Assocalzaturifici focusing on the footwear industry and the latest trends. It is held twice a year – in February and September – at Rho Fiera Milano.

“We’ve had a profitable relationship with the Chinese market for some time now,” says Siro Badon, Chair of Assocalzaturifici and MICAM Milano.

“China recognises the excellence of Italian-made footwear and has always sent plenty of buyers to our trade fairs in Italy. And that’s not all. Assocalzaturifici is also active in China, with a series of exclusive events building on-going dialogue between Italian footwear companies and Chinese buyers.
According to Confindustria Moda figures,” continues Badon, “Italian footwear exports to continental China in the first six months of the year were worth more than 155 million Euro, 13.8% more than the same period in the previous year. This positive trend is also reflected in exports to Hong Kong: Italy has exported a total of more than 2 million two hundred thousand pairs of shoes to China in the first six months 2019, worth 333 million Euro, up 12% over the same period in 2018”.

As well as being an official sponsor of the prestigious MonteNapoleone Gala Dinner, MICAM Milano will be promoting a special day at R.Manda in Shanghai, beginning with a morning presentation of a teaser of the eighty-ninth edition, scheduled for February 16 through 19, 2020 in Milan.

MICAM Milano’s vocation goes beyond the footwear business to include space for new expressions of style represented by talented young designers. This is why, both at the Bulgari Hotel during the Gala Dinner and at the MICAM teaser, there will be plenty of space dedicated to the collections of the selected emerging designers who will be appearing at MICAM this year, making their contribution to the complete overview of the evolution of the latest styles and rising stars in footwear design.

Style, trends, evolving creativity: MICAM Milano meets China, ready to offer the best of Italy and of the world of footwear to this attentive, highly receptive market, while preparing to welcome buyers from the great Asian nation in Milan February 16 through 19, 2020.

 
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.

ISPO Brandnew 2020
A fresh breeze for the industry: sports start-ups convince with new, smart ideas

Out of about 400 applications the jury of ISPO Brandnew 2020 chose eight winners who will compete for the title of “Overall Winner” in a live pitch during ISPO Munich. Messe München/Matthias Robl


The winners of ISPO Brandnew 2020, the leading startup competition of the sports industry, have been selected. An independent jury of experts evaluated the entries in eight categories, drew up an initial list of 50 selected brands and then picked out one winner in each category from this list. The victors won over the jury with their sustainable, customizable concepts and products that have a huge fun factor. For the award-winning startups, ISPO Brandnew creates a powerful springboard into the modern sporting goods business with its customer-focused mission. All winners and selected brands will present their solutions at ISPO Munich (January 26–29, 2020) in the Brandnew Village in Hall B4.

• Eight winners selected from 400 applications
• Brandnew Village filled with 50 selected members at ISPO Munich
•Live pitch for the “Overall “inner” during the trade show

As a way of addressing the changing demands of the sports business, eight new categories that are based closely on market needs were created for ISPO Brandnew 2020. “In times when consumers are increasingly searching for solutions that facilitate a sense of the body, attentiveness and sustainability in the best-possible way, we have recognized startups that will bring new energy into the sports business and satisfy customer needs,” said David Badalec, the head of ISPO Brandnew.

The eight winners cover the broad spectrum of the sporting goods industry, from outdoor and water sports, digital tools, apps and mobility to fitness, and team and winter sports. The jury consisted of an interdisciplinary group of industry insiders: Finalists from previous years, journalists and other industry experts offered their wide-ranging points of view.

Roadmap for ISPO Brandnew 2020

The “Overall Winner” 2020 has not been chosen yet. On Sunday, January 26, the eight winners will make their pitches for the top overall award starting at 4.30 p.m. at the ISPO Brandnew Village in hall B4 during ISPO Munich. Directly following the award ceremony will take place, which then turns into the Networking Night, including all winners, selected brands, former award winners and industry experts.

General information about ISPO Brandnew and details about the exhibited products in the ISPO Brandnew Village at ISPO Munich 2020 can be found online.

Here is an overview of the ISPO Brandnew “Winners” who have already been determined:

Winner Outdoor Adventure: KEEGO Bottle
Austria, 2018, www.keego.at

KEEGO unites the best of two worlds: the moldability and the lightness of a plastic bottle with the hygiene and durability of a metal container. The multi-layer KEEGO bottle has inner surface made of titan that protects water from plastic particles, prevents the formation of mold and fights corrosion. The polymer exterior provides elasticity and grip. The dirt-repelling titan surface makes cleanup a breeze and increases the bottle’s durability in the process.

Winner Urban Outdoor: mvdham,
Germany, 2018, www.mvdham.com

Inspired by extreme outdoor clothing, the Berlin label mvdham is aimed at active city residents—and uses exclusively natural fibers. The products include the company’s very own LAPALUE creation, a padded, two-layer fabric made of silk and wool. The jackets and coats should look good, be wide enough to accommodate a number of layers worn beneath them and provide protection from the wind and weather during bike rides. The aim is to meld function, design and sustainability. As part of the company’s sustainability philosophy, mvdham strives to use as many local producers and suppliers as possible.

Winner Matchtime: SensuSport
Germany, 2017, www.sensusport.com

World-class athletes are known not simply for exceptional technique and their specially trained bodies. They also have a feel for the right form of movement. This is exactly what SensuGlasses are designed to train. Feel, not sight, is really what golf is all about. The idea: As the player swings the club, the lenses of SensuGlasses turn black. The idea is for the golfer to concentrate completely on the response of the club and learn to feel the ball and motion of the swing.

Winner Slopes&Parks: Switch Boards
Poland, 2017, www.switch-boards.com

Park skis, jibbing boards, training bindings or trampoline skis—with Switch Boards’ equipment, winter freestylers and halfpipe cracks have an opportunity in the summer to work on their moves and tricks on kicker and big airs. The Polish startup focuses primarily on professional operations like parks and training halls as well as on end consumers. Designed to function on all trampolines, the boards and skis offer plenty of flexibility, minus the sharp edges of normal skis. The company also has special training bindings which users can wear with shoes or barefoot.

Winner Body&Mind: Enda Running
Kenya, 2018, www.endasportswear.com

After producing a multitude of fast runners, Kenya has come up with its first running shoe, the Enda Lapatet. The training shoe is designed to take on the giants of the industry—and is beaming with self-confidence: Enda plans to present the lightest, most comfortable and most affordable shoe in its class. Designed in cooperation with Kenyan athletes, the Lapatet provides support to the natural mid-foot motion—the typical Kenyan running style. Enda Running also plans to be an economic-development factor. This is why the shoes are produced only in Kenya.

Winner Future Mobility: COWBOY
Belgium, 2018, www.cowboy.com

With its 2019 model, Cowboy sets out to take the next step towards creating a connected bicycle. The purpose of the logically designed e-bike for the city is not just to get the rider quickly and comfortably from one place to the next. What’s more, all functions of the bike—from theft protection through to the activation of the integrated lights—can be controlled and monitored via an app. The smartphone keeps the rider up to date on the battery’s state of charge, assists with navigation and alerts the rider about necessary maintenance work with the help of remote diagnosis.

Winner Offshore: EXOlung
Austria, 2018, www.exolung.com

The mission of the startup EXOlung is to change shallow water diving for recreational and utility purposes and to create new channels into the underwater world. The light and compact diving device uses the diver’s leg movements to transport air up to five meters below the water’s surface. Divers can remain underwater for as long as they want. The addition to the typical set of mask, snorkel and fins is designed to be uncomplicated, robust and affordable. Little maintenance or care is required, and no tanks must be loaded or refilled.

Connected Sports: Awayco
United States, 2018, www.awayco.com

Awayco is determined to bring new energy to the rental business for high-quality bicycles, winter sports equipment and surfing gear, to sustainably fight waste and overconsumption—and to lure more customers into sporting goods stores. The app is designed to help users find more than 20,000 high-quality brand products at specialty retailers in over 150 locations. The booking and payment process is done in advance via the app. The stores profit from the integration of store websites, platform marketing, local marketing support and intuitive in-store booking software.

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.

A workshop where eyewear experts and technicians come together to share insights and novel ideas about eyewear as a social and cultural object and as an accessory, leaving aside discussion of the commercial aspects” explained DaTE President Giovanni Vitaloni.

The next edition of DaTE is scheduled for September 19th to 21st, 2020.

INHORGENTA TRENDS

Gift guide: Christmas present trends

Christmas is the most lucrative time of the year for the jewelry and watch industry. Gifts primarily tend to be more high-end, and items of jewelry that have personal meaning attached to them are particularly popular. Here are the top gift tips from the industry trend expert INHORGENTA MUNICH:

Signet rings
These rings, which are often adorned with a family crest, have managed to shake off their once elitist image. Whether they have a star sign, initials or a message on them and whether they are XL or small, signet rings with personal meaning attached to them are particularly popular. Top tip: They are no longer only worn on the index finger (as was tradition) but also on the middle finger or little finger these days.

Solitaire rings
Diamond rings (the true classics of all rings) never fall out of fashion. Both natural and synthetic diamonds are the perfect way of popping the big question and celebrating true love.

Creole earrings
Various shapes and sizes of Creole earrings will be setting the trend this coming spring/summer. They can range from classic hoops right through to elaborate designs and be made simply from precious metal or feature opulent gemstones. Anyone keen to stay ahead of the trend will want a pair this Christmas.
