16:38Super the new exhibition by Pitti Immagine and Fiera Milano
Pavilion 3 at Piazza VI Febbraio, Milan will host Super:
240 brands presenting the latest prêt-à-porter and accessories
collections for women. It’s a new fair, featuring sophisticated
and made-for-retail fashions and lots of new Italian and international talents.
The first edition of Super, the new exhibition project produced by Pitti Immagine and FieraMilano with the cooperation of the Assessorato Cultura, Moda e Design del Comune di Milano and the contribution of CityLife, will be held in Milan during the city’s forthcoming Women’s Fashion Week, from 23 to 25 February 2013. Pavilion 3, at Piazza VI Febbraio, will host about 240 brands showing their new women’s prêt-à-porter and accessories collections for the 2013-2014 fall/winter season.
"Super springs from the need for a truly different trade fair in Milan”, says Agostino Poletto, deputy general manager of Pitti Immagine, "an event that is capable of meeting the new needs of multi-brand stores in a retail scenario that has changed markedly over the past few years. Super aims to meet the needs of those buyers who want sophisticated fashions and a market sensitive approach of international breadth. For this reason, Super is both a trade fair presenting an extremely composite offering, and a communication event: it rewards innovative product culture, works with the new worlds of accessories and prêt-à-porter, brings together well-established firms and up-and-coming brands in an original way, maximizes young Italian fashion designers, hosts foreign talents and produces sophisticated events. Super is an Italian and global project, created to bring the attention of international markets back to Milan, to open up the city again, making it a brilliant, indispensable feature of the fashion calendar”.
The characteristics of Pavilion 3 in Piazza VI Febbraio help define and support Super’s business and marketing goals. It is a magnificent example of rationalist architecture from the 1920s, with a ground floor of nearly 10 thousand square meters and a raised gallery – about 4 meters above the floor – running all around. The exhibition area is designed by architects Peter Bottazzi and Denise Bonapace who, with their theatrical experience have created a modern, elliptical structure with several aisles that evokes the pavilion’s original atmosphere (it was used as a velodrome), with pre-furnished totally open vendor stands. The primary materials are charcoal structures and mirrors with some colored inserts, while tall vertical elements serve to attenuate perceptions of the ceiling’s soaring height, making the overall impression dynamic and comfortable.
_ around 240 brands presenting their new collections of women’s prêt-à-porter and accessories collections for the fall/winter 2013-2014 season;
_ over 30% of the brands from abroad;
_ accessories collections: 60%; prêt-à-porter brands: 40%.
