MIPEL, the most important international leather goods and fashion accessories show - Milan Italy (Z1380)

THE 117TH EDITION OF MIPEL ENDED
Positive results of an Italy that makes “team”
Trend Area Mipel 117


The 117th edition of MIPEL has just ended and confirms itself as the world reference for the leather goods sector. Four days full of talks, events and performances that surrounded the business moments between the approximately 300 brands present at the event and buyers from all over the world. Three themes that accompanied visitors and exhibitors in various ways: Italianity, craftsmanship and sustainability.

The edition recorded an increase of 11% qualified MIPEL visitors (compared to February 2019) which becomes a +22% if we also consider visitors from fairs held simultaneously: MICAM, HOMI Fashion & Jewels, LINEAPELLE and SIMAC. The positive trend started last September (+19% compared to the same edition of the previous year) therefore continues.

The "coronavirus" effect impacted less significantly than expected, however generating a drop from the Far East. On the other hand, the presence of European visitors increased as well as an important return of Russian and Ukrainian buyers; the fair queen of leather bags and accessories therefore confirms its international vocation with 50% of foreign visitors.

“The positive numbers recorded in this edition are also the result of the synergistic path undertaken with the other events that took place on the same days as MIPEL; a collaboration that has made it possible to face a definitely difficult moment for international business and that it is necessary to continue in an ever stronger way. This is Italy that works and teams up to achieve important results and face international competition", comments Franco Gabbrielli, President of MIPEL and ASSOPELLETTIERI.

Appointment at the 118th edition of MIPEL to be held from 20 to 23 September 2020 at Fiera Milano-Rho.

The Italian leather goods industry 2019
Preliminary Results Sectoral Report
prepared by Centro Studi for ASSOPELLETTIERI

THE ITALIAN LEATHER GOODS INDUSTRY IN 2019

In the second half of the year, the favourable dynamics that had already emerged in the previous months, were confirmed on foreign markets.

In an international macroeconomic context, where new difficulties were not lacking (the USA protectionist winds of the trade war with Beijing, which has nearly achieved Europe, and the slowdown of the most important economies, such as Germany and China) alongside the continuation of pre-existing crisis (Russia in the first place) and in a climate of general uncertainty, the Italian leather goods sector – considered as a whole – achieved definitely positive results in 2019, driven once again by exports. In a year largely characterized by the contraction of international trade and attenuation of world growth, foreign sales of leather goods have reached new absolute records in value, with a consequent significant consolidation of the trade surplus, showing a vitality unfortunately unknown to the domestic market, recording reductions in household expenditures.

In the first 10 months of the year, exports grew by +25.8% in value over the same period of 2018, with a definitely limited increase in terms of value (+0.8%) and an increase of the medium prices (+24.7%).

The very divergent trend between quantity and value reflects the increasingly fundamental role played, within the sector dynamics, by the International Luxury Brands, as shown by the figures relating to exports to Switzerland (traditional logistic-distribution platform for the fashion world brands), even doubled in value (+102.6%). Net of the flow to this market, sectorial exports would in fact increase by a modest +2.5% and slightly decrease in KG (-0.3%).

Although there is no doubt about the relevance of the overall performance of the sector – which 2019 proved to be the most dynamic among the sectors of the national fashion textile accessory - a more deepen examination of the data allows us to highlight how this growth hides the presence of “two speeds” inside the national product reality, whose fabric is made up of a large number of very small companies (70% have no more than 5 employees) for many of which, the year just ended, has reserved results far from those above mentioned double-figure averages. This is confirmed by the indications of numerous operators, an also by the figure relating to birth-mortality company released by Infocamere-Movimprese, which recorded a negative balance from January to December 2019 in the number of active leather goods companies equal to 120 units, between crafts and industry, as well as the resumption of the use – with reference to the largest aggregate of companies in the leather goods sector, to the wage integration tools - with the authorised wage support hours (CIG), increased in 2019 by +28%, with increases in both the ordinary component (+31%) than the extraordinary one (+40%).

Behind the overall considerable numbers linked to subcontracting for the brands, there is a very uneven situation among the companies (artisan workshops, small – medium dimensions own branded companies or not working for luxury brands) which have achieved, in 2019, less profitable or even negative results.

The Istat data on Italian leather goods and tanned leather exports also show that only Tuscany, among the main export regions, has recorded significant growth. The detail of the flows by destination and type of products allows to highlight further critical issues in recent international demand, as well as to underline their most rewarding aspects.

Behind the aforementioned Switzerland – which has become, not only in terms of value (where it holds 37.4% share of total exports) but also in terms of quantity, bypassing Germany, the first country – we find France, another destination, tied, in part, to subcontracting for the brands, which grew by 15.2% in value and + 8.3% in KG in the first 10 months of 2019.

France and Germany (where the cooling of the economy seems to have induced distribution to greater prudence in purchases, causing –5.9% drop in quantity, compared to substantial stability in value) have always been the main destination markets of the Italian operators, which also in 2019 directed 60% of the exported quantities to the 27 partners of European Union (against a much more limited share in value, equal to 27%, due to an average price of 72.60 euros per KG, four times less than that of goods sent to Extra EU (298 euros / KG).

On the whole, the EU markets registered a hold, both in terms of KG (+0.6%) and value (+1.4%) but with a move back in different countries: Spain, The Netherlands, Austria, Romania and Poland, to mention the main ones, recorded in fact decreases both in value and in volume, even if with different intensity. On the other hand, the sales trends towards the United Kingdom is favourable, +3% in value and +4.3% in KG, in a year characterized by the strong uncertainty linked to a possible Brexit no deal.

Positive indications for the North American markets, where both Canada (+16.8% in value and +3.3% in KG) and USA (+4.9% in value and +11.3% in quantity) are growing. The American market, our third destination in value and fourth in volume is very important and it’s for a long time under observation because we fear that tariff disputes with China, which have recently eased, may also extend to trade with the EU.

Difficulties persist in Russia where, after the partial recovery of the two-year period 2016- 2017 and the abrupt interruption of 2018, you can find double-figure contractions in the first 10 months of 2019 (-16.3% in value and –21.8% in KG), as happened for the contiguous footwear sector. Equally penalizing performance affected also the other two mains markets of the area, Ukraine and Kazakhstan (-8.5% and –7.3% in value, respectively).

Fluctuating results in the Far East, which recorded an overall +4.1% increase in value, accompanied however by a –3.2% drop in KG.

South Korea reaffirms the favourable trend of recent years, recording a further doublefigure increase (+19% in value with +12% in volume) which made it the fourth destination market in 2019, to the detriment of Hong Kong (-14.4% in value and even –26% in KG), which international trade statistics still consider separately from China. Mainland China grew by 11% in value (+5.3% in quantity).

If considered together, Mainland China and Hong Kong are confirmed at the second destination market for Italian leather exports, despite a –4.2% decrease in value on January / October 2018.

Japan, growing by 11.2% in value and +4.4% in KG, will certainly be able to offer the Italian operators important new development opportunities even thanks to the partnership agreement signed with the EU (which provides for a gradual but slow, liberalization).

Favourable trends also for Taiwan and for Thailand, which, thanks to increases in the order of 10%, has become one of the top 25 destination markets.

On the other hand, there was a heavy decrease, around -30%, in exports to Singapore, where the negative trend, which began in 2016 is going on.

It should be underlined that Far East markets are, among the main export destinations, those which have (together with Switzerland) the highest average price per KG, far higher than the average of the total Italian export.

Middle East markets are quite stable (-1.1% in value and +1.1% in KG globally), despite the positive signs in the UAE, the main customer of the area.

The export analysis by material highlights significant increases in value of 21.7%, both for leather goods products (which cover three quarters of the export national value) and for those in substitute (+40.8%).

But the leather goods sector – typical of Made in Italy production – shows a little contraction in quantity (-5.2%), with negative signs for bags (-4.8%) and small leather goods (i.e. wallets, purses, key rings, cases), dropped by -5.8% in KG.

The export of non-leather items is also consolidated in KG (+6.4%), with a +10.5% for bags.

Import appears to be almost stable in quantities (+0.7% over the first 10 months of 2018), with a +5% in value, as the low dynamism shown by the international market. The average price per KG (+4.3%) stood at € 22.60, more than 7 times lower than the one of exports (€ 162.24).

The imported leather products KG. decreased by -7.6%; the quantity of goods made of other material (largely majority, since they cover almost 90% of the volumes entering Italy) increased of 2% (but with +23.5% for bags). Both leather and substitute products increased of around 5% in value.

Goods arriving from China (first supplier with a share of more than 60% of the total quantity) increased by a 6.6% in quantity and 4.2% in value. Significant increase for Vietnam (+ 22% in KG, +39% in value). The average prices of products coming from these two countries are the lowest among those of the main suppliers (10.06 and 7.79 euro/KG, respectively).

Considerable growth for imports from France and Switzerland; important reduction for flows arriving from Romania and Spain.

Thanks to the strong increase in exports, the trade balance has recorded a substantial strengthening in the first 10 months (+39%), reaching 5.8 billion euros and exceeding the assets made in the whole 2018 (5.05 billion). Thanks to this result, chapter “42” of the leather goods sector confirmed the fifth place in terms of credit balance among the 99 commodity chapters that make up the customs nomenclature, guaranteeing a fundamental contribution to the Italian balance payments.

No news on the domestic front: in 2019 recorded a further contraction (-2.6%) in quantity and – 1.7% in expenditure, according to Sita Ricerca), confirming the unfavourable trend of recent years. These figures become even more penalizing, considering the umbrellas (down more than 5% because of the mild climate of the beginning of the year).

After a third quarter with weakly positive signs, the last part of the year highlighted new declines, excluding a cycle reversal.

Negative trends for handbags, -5.6% in volume and -3.8% in value, by far the most purchased items (they cover more than half of the total expenditure), as well as for belts (-5.5% in the number of pieces and -3.8% in value). More content decrease for wallets (-2.1% quantity). Backpacks are recovering compared to 2018; good for suitcases and trolley.

Regarding the trend by purchase channel, although the annual final date are not yet available, according to the first elaborations, the indications already highlighted in the first half of the year, which showed significant drops in the traditional retail, department stores and itinerant trade but a further growth for e-commerce, should be confirmed.

MIPEL117:
THE WORLD OF LEATHER GOODS MEETS IN MILAN

 

After the brilliant performance of last September (+ 19% attendance compared to the September 2018 edition) MIPEL is preparing to reopen the doors of Hall 10 of FieraMilano-Rho from 16 to 19 February 2020 to present the FW2020/21 proposals of the over 300 participating brands.

The most important international exhibition in the world dedicated to bags and leather accessories, now in its 117th edition and organized under the patronage of the Municipality of Milan, confirms itself as an essential appointment for all brands, more or less known, who want to present the own product and get in touch with the main buyers worldwide.

At the same time as MIPEL, MICAM, the international footwear exhibition (16-19 February), and HOMI Fashion & Jewels (15-18 February), the event dedicated to fashion accessories, bijoux and trendy jewelry will take place, thus creating an exclusive polo reference in the universe of fashion accessories and an unmissable international business opportunity. Also noteworthy is the concurrence of two days with Milan Fashion Week (18- 19 February) and one day with the LINEAPELLE and SIMAC fairs (19 February).

Among the new brands present at MIPEL: RefrigiWear, Romeo Gigli e Spalding, rientrano invece brand come Golla, Ynot e Valigeria Roncato. are included. Confirmed, among the most devoted to MIPEL: Aereonautica Militare, Athison, Braccialini, Bric's, Caterina Lucchi, Gabs, Gio Cellini, Nannini e Secrid.

THE SUPPORT OF MAECI AND ITA – ITALIAN TRADE AGENCY

Also for this edition, MIPEL benefits from the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the ITA for the enhancement of major trade fair events. Thanks to public support, the event strengthened buyers' international hospitality and communication activities.

BETWEEN SUSTAINABILITY, CRAFTSMANSHIP AND ITALIANITY

There are three themes on which the event turns the spotlight on: sustainability, craftsmanship and Italianity that the event promotes also through its advertising campaign which sees as protagonists some young leather goods manufacturers handling the tools of the trade, expression of craftsmanship (leather pieces, hammers, anvils, awls, chalks, scissors etc ...) but also with the emblems of Italian spirit, this to emphasize the added value of the Italian style of the event.

Italy is considered the cradle of art and know-how, MIPEL is therefore the ideal stage in which to present the best products and brands, the expression of the art of leather manufacturing from all over the world, of which, however, Italy remains absolute leader. The decision to place some young leather goods manufacturers immersed in a colorful world at the center of the communication campaign is not accidental: too often the world of leather goods is understood as "old", "traditional", "boring", MIPEL overturns the stereotype and recounts the beauty of a sector that can offer many job opportunities to young people who want to get involved. According to Confindustria Moda estimates, in the next 3 years the world of italian fashion industry will register a need of approximately 48,000 operating workers, of which a significant part refer to the leather goods sector which is, precisely, in continuous growth; therefore, there is an incredible world of opportunities to be seized by young people and this is one of the messages that the event wants to launch. Within the campaign there are also references to the theme of environmental sustainability: flowers and leaves join the other objects present and also through the use of ironic videos MIPEL launches the message that waste materials such as plastic, cans etc…, if properly recycled they can actually turn into new resources and therefore contribute to environmental well-being.

The line of sustainability will also be explored through the set-ups, collaboration with reference partners and the organization of specific workshops; in this way MIPEL aims to raise awareness among exhibitors and visitors about the contribution that each individual can make to the common cause of sustainability understood not only in the environmental sphere, but also in the social, economic and productive spheres.

NEWS AND CONFIRMATIONS

Visitors will be greeted by a new layout of the pavilion whose lanes will be covered with carpet made with eco-sustainable materials and, therefore, completely recycled and recyclable. The new layout will be characterized by a central area, the nerve center of the event: the area will be dedicated to two sectors that gather the greatest interest:

• the TREND AREA, the place where raw material and finished product come together to create an area of synthesis of the trends of the FW2020-21 season; the area was born from the collaboration with UNIC Italian Tanneries, which supplies the leathers and fabrics that best represent the trends presented, and the companies participating in the show whose products most representative of the reference trend are selected to make up the area.

SCENARIO, the flagship sector of the event where are located the most innovative and modern collections, bags and accessories made with sustainable materials or techniques, the brands that are not yet well known but super-cool! 37 are the brands that will exhibit in this area. Starting from the Trend Area, a wider area will be developed which will be set up with over 1,500 plants and only recycled materials that will then be given new life. It will be a space dedicated to workshops and performances that will animate the days of the fair.

In addition, starting at 6.30 pm on February 17th, the area will be the perfect stage for an exclusive party dedicated to exhibitors and visitors and animated by the extraordinary music of "Ben DJ", a name that means "party" in exclusive environments around the world. Of Tunisian origin but Milanese foster, Ben Dj is a true star for those who love dance music. Deejay and producer is disputed in VIP parties all over the world and was among the jurors of "All Together Now", the new music show conducted by Michelle Hunziker and J-Ax, aired on Canale 5.

On the occasion of this exclusive cocktail, interesting news will also be announced that will concern the edition of MIPEL next September (from 20 to 23).

THE "ITALIAN START UP" PROJECT

In one of the most important areas of the event, the square of the SCENARIO sector, a space will be set up dedicated to 10 young Italian designers, selected together with the ITA-Italian Trade Agency, who distinguished themselves for the creative idea of the project as well as for having made their own in some cases, sustainability issues: 11-10 Undici Dieci, Anita Bilardi, B Prime, Domozero, Eremo, Lara Bellini, Le Moki Milano, SPAZIOiF, ViaMailBag, Vive la Difference.

With this project, named "ITALIAN STARTUP", MIPEL and ITA reaffirm their support for emerging realities in order to find ever new ways to enhance and promote Italian creativity and genius. The brands selected for this area are also present within the event with thier own stand and being part of this project will therefore have an additional opportunity for visibility in the eyes of visitors and operators.

MIPEL SUPPORTS AND PROMOTES THE COMMUNITY OF SAN PATRIGNANO

MIPEL and the community of San Patrignano have started a collaborative project that has all the credentials to get far. The first step is to host a stand entirely dedicated to the young people of the community inside Hall 10 of FieraMilano-Rho whi will showcase the creations of the Design Lab of the San Patrignano leather goods sector and will perform live, during fair hours, practical demonstrations of working and decorating leather. This is an interesting way to let know the production reality of the Community that operates today both under its own brand (producing a San Patrignano brand line that, through MIPEL contacts, hopes to distribute to contribute to the sustainability of the Community) and in close contact with the most important Italian companies in the sector.

The leather goods sector of San Patrignano develops the understanding of the artisan product as a fusion of experiences from tradition and innovation processes in favor of excellence "designed and made in Italy". The focus of the project is the ability to understand the product, the knowledge of its tangible and intangible values, highlighting the value of applied production excellence. The cognitive background acts as an indispensable platform for developing skills related to all phases of product realization.

The sector collaborates as a production laboratory for important Made in Italy companies and with companies that decentralize their production processes with district logic. The presence at MIPEL, the cradle of leather goods, is therefore an incredible opportunity for the guys of the community who will thus be able to immerse themselves in an experience of direct contact with the major players in the sector.

The evolution of the project foresees that MIPEL may become in the future a moment in which the guys of the community, trained within the Design Lab and finished the recovery process, can get involved and introduce themselves to the companies present at the event which, accepting the challenge, they will therefore be able to count on a motivated and competent workforce.

In addition to hosting the children inside the fair, MIPEL has decided to support another sector of the community, the graphic one, by entrusting it with the printing of the official catalog of the event.

COLLABORATION WITH CAMERA BUYER ITALIA

An interesting news of this edition is the collaboration started with Camera Buyer Italia (CBI) which will sponsor two of the talks scheduled for the 4 days of the fair. The topics covered will be the central ones of the show (Italianity, sustainability, craftsmanship) addressed through the privileged eye of the buyers, the link between the brands and the final consumer.

There will also be a moment of in-depth analysis dedicated to the analysis on the change in the way of approaching brands by different generations of buyers.

A partnership, the one between MIPEL and CBI, which wants to be a first step for future wide-ranging initiatives: “CBI represents the most advanced point of the business model linked to the trade in fashion products, this for two main reasons: - comments Franco Gabbrielli, President of MIPEL and ASSOPELLETTIERI - first of all because this model has been able to span the decades consolidating a prestigious position but also because it has managed to interpret the transition from physical to digital trade in the right way, seizing and understanding its opportunities. We have the possibility - continues Gabbrielli - to share many collaborative hypotheses at a synergic level and this first step certainly goes in this direction by promoting an exchange of ideas and a sharing of projects also for the future of leather goods".

TALKS AND PERFORMANCES

MIPEL enriches its calendar of events from edition to edition, placing itself increasingly not only as a meeting and business moment between buyers and exhibitors but also as a moment of discussion of some of the main themes so dear to the fashion system today and more particularly to the supply chain of belonging: sustainability, digitalization, Made in Italy, start-ups, internationalization opportunities.

With this in mind, starting from Sunday 16 February, various “talks” will be held in the MIPEL workshop area (hall 10, between lane I and lane H), moderated by the journalist Andrea Guolo, to which all the visitors of the event will have free access. Among the various interventions planned, in addition to those of Camera Buyer Italia, there is also the testimony of the founders of the MIRTA platform, the e-tailer who bet on the craftsmen; the story of start-ups like Afhra, Boarini Milanesi and Red Rossini who, as new-born of independent leather goods, can be considered a mix between vision and courage and, finally, the testimony of the guys of the Leather goods Design Lab of San Patrignano where the bag is the (new) life.

The days of the event will also be enlivened by the performance of very different artists but with one common factor in common: the passion and the desire to communicate through their art and therefore leave a mark.

So on Sunday, February 16, visitors will be captured by the sounds and percussion of "Damat", a young composer and street drummer born in '94 who uses recycled materials to reproduce music. He started playing his mother's pots from an early age, now Damat plays in the biggest Italian and world cities with buckets, pots, plates and any other object that can produce a sound. He has participated in several television programs such as: Tu Si Que Vales, Edicola Fiore and Czechoslovakia Got Talent.

Monday 16 February at h. 17.00 instead it will be the turn of the social actress Tiziana Di Masi with her show: "Before buying, think!", an interactive show on education for sustainable purchasing, traceability and the real made in Italy. With more than 220 performances with the show "All I'm about to tell you is false" on tour since 2013, Tiziana is a na tional anti-counterfeiting testimonial for the Ministry of Economic Development and her show went on stage in the Chamber of Deputies, in the Senate and broadcast live on RAI Cultura. Since 2016 she is testimonial for legal purchase education for Confcommercio and Confindustria.

Space for dance instead on Tuesday 18 February thanks to "Modulo Academy": training place, born in Milan, dedicated to urban dances, is aimed at all students who wish to make dance their profession. On the occasion of the collaboration with MIPEL, "Modulo Academy" has created a flashmob with a street character, with a strongly current language, enhancing the artistic expression in all its forms, from dance to craftsmanship, with awareness in the present and trust in a future eco friendly. The academy dancers will perform twice starting from h. 17:00.

All performances will take place in the workshop area of pavilion 10.

MIPEL 116


MIPEL 116: excellent first results as President for Franco Gabbrielli (+ 19% of presences), "we reversed course and now we have to move fast!"

The 116 edition of MIPEL has just ended, an exceptional edition in terms of presence of qualified visitors and events, the first under the presidency of Franco Gabbrielli and the fifth led by Danny D'Alessandro, General Manager of Assopellettieri and CEO of MIPEL.

Sustainability and environmental awareness were the leitmotif of the numerous events and workshops held during the days of the event.

The edition ended by registering a 'boom' in attendance (+ 19% of qualified operators compared to the September 2018 edition) thanks, above all, to the strong increase in buyers from the EU and from the main world reference markets of the Italian leather goods sector.

In particular, with regard to the European market, there was a strong increase in visitors from Germany (+27.80%), Spain (+ 23.16%), United Kingdom (+19.46%), Switzerland (+13.22%) and France (+8.44%). As for the non-EU markets, the performance recorded by buyers from South Korea (+17.58%) and China (+6.36%) should be highlighted. Japan is the first "visitor" country of MIPEL, followed by the Russian Federation. The presence of US visitors slightly decreased (- 2.76%).

The panorama is completed by the strong increase in Italian visitors (+12.37%). In this regard, Franco Gabbrielli, after thanking his predecessor Riccardo Braccialini for his excellent work, states: "We have closed an exceptional edition which, apart from the numbers, has garnered the satisfaction of exhibitors and buyers, and this is what matter the most for me. This satisfaction is the perfect attention-grabber for our trade fair and gives us the right incentive to work hard on the future. On the future - continues Gabbrielli - I have clear ideas: fashion is innovation, courage and a touch of ruthlessness. I like to surprise!"

The next edition of MIPEL will take place from 16th to 19th February 2020 at Fieramilano-Rho, coinciding with Micam and Homi and overlapping with the first day of Milan Fashion Week.

MIPEL116 LOOKS TO SUSTAINABILITY: A CAMPAIGN TO FOCUS ON THE MAN-NATURE RELATIONSHIP


MIPEL, the most important international fair dedicated to fashion handbags and accessories, has unveiled the theme of its next edition, the 116th, which will be held in Milan from 15th to 18th September 2019 at the Fieramilano-RHO spaces in Milan.

The event will be dedicated to the theme of sustainability, already part of the concept of the event last February. Through some metaphorical installations, MIPEL launches a clear message: all the green of our planet, hills, mountains, plants, trees, abandons the earth due to indiscriminate mistreatment and pollution.

To explain this tragic abandonment, the fair's advertising campaign features a figurative element: the mirror.

The mirror depicts a doorway between the real and the imaginary, shows us what is there but could disappear.

As in the reflection of the mirror, in which the space expands, revealing what to the eye may not appear but which instead constitutes a fundamental part of our world, that is nature, even man should expand his gaze and stop intervening on the environment without worrying about the consequences, thus realizing that the time left to "save" our world is very little and that respect for nature (but also for man) is an essential condition for this purpose.

The campaign focuses on the contrast between the work of man that intervenes on the nature and the beauty of the reflection of nature itself, pure and uncontaminated.

MIPEL therefore launches a message that speaks of sustainability, harmonious coexistence between man and nature, in the hope of raising awareness, also through the projects that will be presented at the fair. MIPEL launches a concept also on its contents: even leather, an element offered by nature itself, can and must be interpreted in a sustainable manner, both in terms of procurement and processing techniques.

The place that made it possible to best interpret this message is the Sculpture Park of Chianti, in the province of Siena; a magical place in which the works of man in the form of sculptures are integrated with the surrounding nature.

MIPEL 116
THE NEW EDITION SPEEDS UP ON SUSTAINABILITY AND GREEN COMMITMENT


Next MIPEL edition, the most important international event dedicated to the B2B market of bags and fashion accessories, is starting under the guidance of the new President of Assopellettieri, Franco Gabbrielli. Many new collaborations will be presented thanks to the contribution of Gabbrielli who, already at his nomination at the end of June, declared that among the priorities to direct efforts there would have to be the renewal of the MIPEL fair, which must focus more and more on quality, young people and innovative ideas.

“I joined the organization when MIPEL116th edition was already mostly planned but we have already brought several interesting innovations that I am sure will be appreciated by visitors and exhibitors; I'm already thinking about the next MIPEL117 to complete the path of renewal I have in mind", says Gabbrielli.

The event, organized by Assopellettieri with the support of ITA-Italian Trade Agency and MISE, renews its commitment in favor of environmental sustainability and social responsibility.

Next edition, MIPEL116, which will be held in pavilion 10 of Fiera Milano Rho from 15 to 18 September, in conjunction with MICAM and HOMI (15 and 16 September) continues the path begun last season, based on awareness of the supply chain and consumers on sustainability.

The event, which brings together over 350 brands and more than 12,000 qualified visitors from all over the world (96 countries), welcomes established brands including: Athison, Bric's, Cabin Zero, Caterina Lucchi, Cromia, Gabs, La Martina, Tosca Blu, and for the first time new companies such as: Aeronautica Militare, Gio Cellini, Lamborghini, Nannini.

Many initiatives and special collaborations designed for the new edition of the fair.

HOT NEWS!

MIPEL AND RDS 100% GRANDI SUCCESSI: FEEL THE MUSIC RDS 100% Grandi Successi is the official radio of MIPEL 116.

In the increasingly globalized and multimedia world, the collaboration between MIPEL and RDS (one of the top italian leading radios) is a sign of the fair that, besides confirming itself as a reference point in its segment, aims to involve the final consumer and the general public in order to interact in the world.

On the other hand, RDS is once again close to the world of entrepreneurship and its international showcases such as MIPEL, the largestevent dedicated to leather goods and fashion accessories.

The event, now in its 116th edition, will benefit in these days from a lot of communication in the RDS show-schedule aimed at promoting the event and in the days of the Fair the hosts Petra Loreggian, Sunday 15 September and Giuditta Arecco, Monday 16 September, will tell about all the curiosities and news with live connections with the radio thus creating a link with the general public. Furthermore, in the MIPEL pavilion, in collaboration with RDS and its DJs, it will be set up a dedicated space: a meeting place where to listen to the music, meet the main interpreters of Italian industry and participate in the scheduled workshops in the four days of the fair that will be moderated by the hosts Petraand Giuditta.

RDS 100% Grandi Successi, with its vocation to be an entertainment company, thus accompanies MIPEL in a path dedicated to promoting the Fair and the entrepreneurial realities that represent the pride of Made in Italy.

The sponsors of the initiative are: YKK, UNIC, FIERAMILANO and Ta-Bru SpA.

THE CREATIVE THEME

MIPEL invests and bets again on sustainability.

Assopellettieri, the trade association that promotes MIPEL, tries again to raise awareness among industry, buyers and consumers on a topical issue that involves everyone.

First of all, the setting up: visitors to the fair will be greeted by a suggestive display: meta-phorical installations in which all the green of our planet hills, mountains, grass, trees, flowers leaves the land due to indiscriminate exploitation and pollution. Nature does not die but voluntarily moves upwards, leaving the ground to which it belongs to remain suspended, as in a sort of limbo, on the heads of visitors as to remind them the weight of their own responsibility towards the Planet and future generations.

The vegetation and trees are raised in the air, at the entrances and along the aisles of the pavilion. The flowers are imprisoned in the plastic as well as in plastic are the crowns of the trees whose dry trunks are lying in the air. Only arid lands, cement and polluted water surfaces remain on the surface.

The collaboration with the artist Enrica Borghihas also been renewed: with her artistic work Enrica creates a heterogeneous universe that comes to life and takes life from materials that our society rejects and discards. In the upcoming MIPEL edition Enrica presents,in the “SCENARIO” square, the most important site in the pavillon, her ”Nebulosa”: floating, shimmering and light as a wind blow, the plastic bottles, cut and deformed with heat from the hands of Enrica, stand out precious in the suspended space. They seem to twirl like butterflies. They remind us the thousands of bottles that we all throw into our plastic bells.

THE AREAS OF THE EVENT SCENARIO

The leading sector of MIPEL has been confirmed. Positioned at the heart of the event, it is the stage dedicated to research companies and the coolest brands. The key words of this area are: creativity, innovation and research. A unique and original set-up will characterize this area and allow the uniqueness of the brands and products that will be exhibited here to emerge further.

Also in this area the message of the event will be clear: the nature that metaphorically abandons us: on the ground the gray cement, cold and impersonal, high and suspended, as if to distance itself from the work of the man who has taken up space vital to nature, the luxuriant green crossed by flashes of light.

In the SCENARIO square a new project also takes shape: SIGNATURE.

• SIGNATURE -THE PROJECT

Prestigious position within the SCENARIO square will be occupied by the innovative SI-GNATURE project promoted by MIPEL.

Storytelling, uniqueness, made in Italy, sustainability, traceability, are the key words for the companies participating in the project that present their creations in a different way, giving space to the story behind each product, underlining the characteristics of sustainability un-derstood as a story “ behind the scene” handed down for generations and updated through modern design and innovative techniques.

The story of a product becomes the "Signature" mark that characterizes each leather goods brand; different stories that highlight the creative ability of Italian brands.

The underlying intent of the project is to tell the world of leather goods to the contemporary generations of consumers who are paying more and more attention to stories, products and processes; but at the same time also a different way of dialoguing with international buyers.

The brandsparticipating in the project are: Athison, Boldrini Selleria, Claudia Firenze, De Couture, Innuè, Lara Bellini, Plinio Visona’, Terrida, 11-10 Undici Dieci.

MIPEL STREETSTYLE AREA

Mipel Street Style Area is back: a space where new trends are absolute protagonists. Thanks to the strong collaboration between MIPEL and UNIC-Italian Tanneries, which supplies the leather and fabrics that, together with the finished products, make up the area, visitors have the opportunity to observe them closely butabove all to touch them andunderstand their features. The layout of this space is entirely designed to create a direct link with the raw materials.

THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY OF MIPEL: THE SPECIAL PROJECTS

At MIPEL116 all the special projects are linked together and united by the common deno-minator which is sustainability. This is how the consumption of plastic bottles will be com-pensated by the creation of drinkable water wells for the most unlucky populations and in raising awareness of visitors and exhibitors to recycle them properly; part of the carbon dioxide produced in the days of the fair will be compensated by trees planted in another area of the world, an activity that will also support local economies, ensuring farmers and workers with work and food.

The environmental sustainability promoted by MIPEL116 is highlighted also from the promotion of virtuous means of transport such as the tram, dedicating a special project to it.

Here are all the details of the various projects:

ATTACCATIALTRAM

It is a new contest dedicated to all MIPEL exhibitors supported by the Lombardy Region and with the patronage of the Municipality of Milan. The project consists in the creation of a limited edition product inspired by the tram, the iconic Milanese means of transport with a sustainable soul due to its low environmental impact and example of virtuous urban mobility.

The 15 finalist brands will have the opportunity to exhibit their creations within a dedicated area of MIPEL and will have a further opportunity for visibility during the evening event of "MIPEL IN CITTÁ", the Fuorisalone of the Fair, which will take place at the San Pietro Concept Store in Porta Venezia and during which the three best projects will be announced. The three winners will have the opportunity to exhibit their creations in the shopping window of the Concept Store for a week. The jury will be: Franco Gabbrielli, president of Assopellettieri and creator of the brand "Gabs", Roberto Lambicchi, Fairs Director of the Lombardy Region and Virginia Varinelli, fashion influencer who boasts about 450K followers.

The finalists brands are: Aballi, Alberto Olivero, Artphere, Athison, Baiadera-I Dipinti, Bru-ga Venezia, Ciak Roncato, Femea Milano, Jadise Sicilia, Laboratorio Mariucci, Le Zirre Napoli Limited Edition, My Best Bag by Florence Bags srl, Ripani, 11-10 Undici Dieci, Va-lentino Orlandi.

RECYCLEàEATàENJOY

With the aim of encouraging the recycling of plastic bottles consumed during the event, MIPEL has thought of a fun and tasty initiative! Infact, during the 4 days of the event, two very special eco-compactors will be placed inside the pavilion: for each plastic bottle intro-duce in them, they will generate a ticket that will allow, both visitors and exhibitors, to re-ceive a tasty free snack in one of the dedicated points scattered around inside the pavilion.

The aim is to make visitors and exhibitors aware of the importance of waste separation by passing on the message that "differentiating repays, always!". The free snack ticket is obviously a symbol: recycling waste correctly allows everyone to be rewarded by nature.

FEEL THE GREEN!

THE ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL COMMITMENT OF MIPEL BECOMES A FOREST THANKS TO TREEDOM

MIPEL is at the forefront of environmental protection through a new initiative created in collaboration with Treedom,the only web platform in the world that allows you to plant a tree at a distance and follow it online.

All trees are planted directly by farmers in various countries of the worldand contribute to producing environmental, social and economic benefits.

MIPEL has thus created its own forest named "FEEL THE GREEN", populated by 300 trees donated to each of its exhibitors; in this way the show aims to contribute to the reduction of Co2 emissions and therefore to produce not only environmental but also socialbenefits, contributing to the sustenance of the economies of the countries in which these trees have been planted.

On the Treedom platform, which can also be accessed from the totem in the pavilion, the MIPEL forest will remain "open" to the public throughout the month of September, so as to give the opportunity to all participants in the event to adopt and plant their own tree and thus make a personal contribution to the cause.

MIPEL AND WAMI: DRINKING WATER BECOMES AN EXTRAORDINARY GESTURE

Mipel is once again linked to WAMI - Water with a Mission, a startup that was born with an ambitious mission: to help reduce the world water problem and make the daily gesture of drinking water extraordinary.

Every WAMI bottle purchased finances a water development project in villages without access to water; WAMI in fact builds aqueducts and water networks by connecting individual families with a tap where there was never any drinking water available. By entering the code on the neck of the bottle on the site, it is possible to see to which family was given water.

Each of the bottles consumed during MIPEL donates 100 liters of water to needy villages; MIPEL choice to adhere to the WAMI mission is thus realized in the donation of 800,000 liters of water to communities in Senegal, Tanzania and Kenya that did not have access to this resource.

WAMI is 100% recyclable and 50% made from recycled plastics. Trees are planted in Italy in order to compensate CO2 emissions.

MIPEL AND “IL GIRASOLE” SOCIAL COOPERATIVE TOGETHER TO SUPPORT SOCIAL INTEGRATION

Also for this edition, the collaboration with the leather workshop of the "Il Girasole" Social Cooperative in Florence continues. The Cooperative supports those in difficulty, encourages the “teaching of a job” and social integration.. Thanks to the support of UNIC–Italian Tanneries the guys of the Cooperative have produced manually gadgets and leather products that will be distributed during MIPEL presentation events to international buyers and press.

Moreover, thanks also to the contribution of YKK Italia SpA, which has been working with Assopellettieri for a long time, they have been realized some leather card holders, for MIPEL116 press conference, using recycled materials supplied by UNIC–Italian Tanner-ies and by YKK Italia SpA with the aim of enhancing all the components of the product.

WORKSHOPS

MIPEL confirms itself as a meeting place for cultural exchange between subjects coming from different sectors. Through a rich program of workshops the public will have the opportunity to discuss various topics related to the supply chain.

Among others, Beppe Angiolini, the most famous Italian fashion buyer in the world, Nicola Giuggioli, CEO of ECO-AGE, a company that aims to help companies create a culture of sustainability, and Virginia Varinelli, fashion influencer with about 450k that has created her own consulting and web-developer company.

“MIPEL IN CITTÁ”, the “side event” of the fair

The connectivity path between MIPEL and Milan continues, the city will be in fact the prestigious location for MIPEL side-event to be held on Monday 16 September.

MIPEL 116 has chosen the San Pietro Concept Store, in Porta Venezia; on September 16th, the store will host the 116th MIPEL cocktail party in collaboration with RDS 100% Grandi Successi, which will liven up the evening thanks to a deejay set and one of its top anchorwoman, Rossella Brescia.

During the event the #ATTACCATIALTRAMcontest will be presented and the three best projects will be awarded; the winners’ products will be displayed in the shopping window of the concept store for a week starting from September 17th.

TOP BUYER INCOMING PROJECT

ITA-Italian Trade Agency, MISE and MIPEL will work together also for the next edition to give more and more impetus to the internationalization path of the event and support the Made in Italy in the world.

The incoming project of top international buyers is back, thanks to which MIPEL attracts more and more foreign buyers to the event.

Following the path of internationalization and the success of the previous editions, the MIPEL LEATHERGOODS SHOWROOM IN KOREA initiative will return from 15 to 17 October in Seoul; the event will bring the best of Italian realities to the heart of one of the most important reference markets for Italian leather goods. This project is in addition to another successful initiatives such as MIPEL roadshows which have allowed the organization to present the event to buyers and press of important worldwide markets such as Japan (Tokyo) France (Paris) and Germany (Berlin).

These projects confirm MIPEL as an example of Italian excellence always open to the international competition, to the future and the innovation.

SIGNATURE PROJECT: THE ART OF STORYTELLING


Prestigious position within the SCENARIO square is occupied by the innovative SIGNATURE project promoted by MIPEL.

Storytelling, uniqueness, made in Italy, sustainability, traceability, are the key words for the companies participating in the project that present their creations in a different way, giving space to the story behind each product, underlining the characteristics of sustainability understood as a story “ behind the scene” handed down for generations and updated through modern design and innovative techniques.

The story of a product becomes the "Signature" mark that characterizes each leather goods brand; different stories that highlight the creative ability of Italian brands.

The underlying intent of the project is to tell the world of leather goods to the contemporary generations of consumers who are paying more and more attention to stories, products and processes; but at the same time also a different way of dialoguing with international buyers.

The brands participating in the project are: Athison, Boldrini Selleria, Claudia Firenze, De Couture, Innuè, Lara Bellini, Plinio Visona’, Terrida, 11-10 Undici Dieci.
