Pitti Spring 2013

Pitti Entrance
Pitti closed his gates yesterday. As usual we are now posting some picture and report about the show.
It was a busy one, mostly foreign customers visiting (Russia, Japan, Europe..).

Scarecrows in Pitti ?

We presented our new Spring 2013 collection. A lot of colours and more casual.
Of course the big part of the collection was in cotton, but we have also linen and some linen/silk and cotton/silk blends.
Green attack !
Actually the situation is reflecting the general world economic situation, with a little depressing European market and a more "in shape" Asian and USA market.
A lot of events has been held during the show, both press and business.
At the end Pitti is confirming it is the best high quality fashion show in the world.

Pitti Uomo next week

We are attending Pitti Uomo in Florence since the beginning of the '80. It was and still it is the best trade show in the world. People from all the world are coming to see all the new collections presented by the big, but most medium/small Companies. An unique occasion for both, buyers and small Companies, to meet and exchange information and feedbacks.

As usual we will post our Pitti report the week after the end of the show.

Probably the oldest socks' machine "alive"

It is called "Wildt" and it's born more or less in the 1930. The cones with the yarn are still in wood and not in plastic as the ones of today. Not necessary to say all the mechanisms are manual. This machine was used until the '90. You can still use it today, but it is producing 1 dozens socks every 8 hours, compared to the 5 1/2 of the modern ones and quite impossible to find spare pieces when they broke.
