Pitti Filati says...Do knit yourself!

May '07
“Pitti Filati is internationally acknowledged as the leading event in the field of yarns for the knitting industry, technological innovations and services for the textile industry,” says Agostino Poletto, marketing director of Pitti Immagine “because over the years it has succeeded in dominating the high end of the market, investing in research and quality and presenting innovative projects on the international fashion industry scenario."

One of the distinguishing features of this show is its role as the ideal meeting place for creative heads in fashion and design. "In fact, it is thanks to the Spazio Ricerca the Pitti Filati trend laboratory/workshop that, research on future style and taste trends, are made available to the buyers and to the representatives of the style bureaus of the great names in fashion and accessories”.

The Pitti Filati Spazio Ricerca is a place for experiments; it is where ideas and concepts become knits with an innovative and unique form of expression.

For this edition Angelo Figus, fashion designer, and Nicola Miller, knitwear expert have come up with Zucchero Filato – cotton candy: with the leading roles taken by the interactions between food and esthetics, pleasure and sin and the importance of food design in contemporary culture.

The esthetic concepts related to sugar and the world of sweets through the infinite charm of textures, colors, layers and creaminess become the starting points for inspiration and research for a new esthetic and a new style that will bring us the yarns for the 2008/09 fall-winter collection and total creativity.
