‘Anteprima, fair of leather goods created by Lineapelle, this year becomes the frame of a project dedicated to young designers.
12 emerging designers – including Silvano Arnoldo and Massimiliano Battois, designers of the brand Arnoldo][Battois – are involved in the project. ‘When the fashion changes its skin’, which aims to enhance the creativity and the Italian quality in the use of leather, a versatile material that combines tradition and innovation. New talents will show a collection of leather clothes and accessories, with the trendiest colours of Fall/Winter 2013-14, exposed through installations of great effect, which will enhance shapes and colour combinations.
Their creations were presented on September 4 at the Italian Embassy in Paris and then in Milan on September 10 and 11 during Anteprima at
Superstudio Piu in via Tortona 27. The next steps will be London, Tokyo and New York.
Arnoldo][Battois will present 3 outfits for this project, inspired by the freedom that come from the constraint: exploded zip from which black cherry leather escapes, medieval chests adorned with studs, straps that wrap around the body, precise chromatic divisions that, with their split, tell the change. The red is a symbol of this process: it creeps in volumes with dark and dense tone and then it explodes in total freedom. The shapes, both of the bags and
The clothes are defined by compact volumes to which oppose soft and silky materials.’
