Dal Cpm una conferma: la Russia sta tornando un buon mercato moda

0

cpmMOSCA–Quattro giorni di moda in un mercato che sembra poter recuperare i fasti del passato. La scorsa settimana all’Expocenter International di Mosca è andato in scena Cpm Collection Première Moscow, il salone di abbigliamento e accessori  uomo, donna e bambino per l’autunno-inverno 2017-18 giunto alla sua 28esima edizione.

Tra il centinaio di espositori provenienti da tutto il mondo, 134 i brand italiani presenti, divisi tra abbigliamento, lingerie e beachwear, nell’area speciale “Italian Fashion at Cpm” curata da Emi (Ente Moda Italia). Non sono mancate le aziende carpigiane: Donne Da Sogno, DVRoma, Donatella De Paoli, Daniela Dallavalle con la linea Elisa Cavaletti, Europull (con il brand Green Coast), Le Fate, La Fabbrica del Lino e Marty Mode (con il marchio Marta Palmieri).

Quest’ultima edizione ha fatto registrare una significativa crescita degli espositori (più 44 per cento rispetto a settembre) e ha confermato le aspettative dei produttori di abbigliamento per il 2017 russo considerando che la Russia rimane in testa alla classifica dei mercati esteri di riferimento per l’Italia: i dati di Sistema Moda Italia sull’export italiano verso questo Paese parlano di una crescita, da gennaio a ottobre 2016, del 21 per cento. Anche stavolta Emi e Smi, con il supporto del Ministero dello Sviluppo Economico e in collaborazione con la sede di Mosca dell’agenzia Ice, hanno organizzato sessioni di incoming di delegazioni di buyer provenienti dalle regioni economicamente più sviluppate della Russia e allestito una speciale Italian Fashion Lounge per accogliere gli operatori del settore e i vip buyer russi in un’area dalla marcata impronta italiana. Secondo le impressioni di imprenditori, espositori, operatori e visitatori di Cpm si è trattato di un’ottima edizione a conferma che i Russi stanno riprendendo vigore nell’acquisto e la paura della crisi e dei tassi di cambio sfavorevoli sta passando. Tutti hanno lavorato e si è notata soprattutto una grande qualità professionale dei clienti. Sul fronte delle aziende carpigiane presenti a Cpm si registra una certa soddisfazione. «Lo dico a gran voce: è andata molto bene e abbiamo lavorato tanto – commenta Tamara Gualandi, titolare di Donne Da Sogno –. Già a settembre avevo notato una Mosca “viva” e in gran fermento, sintomo di una ripresa che finalmente c’è. In questa edizione di Cpm abbiamo visto, dopo tanto tempo, clienti ai quali è tornata la voglia di comprare. Un bilancio definitivo è ancora presto per tracciarlo: bisognerà aspettare un paio di mesi e vedere se arriveranno le conferme degli ordini». Soddisfazione anche da parte di Alessandro Mondini, commerciale dell’azienda carpigiana Europull a cui fa capo il marchio di abbigliamento maschile Green Coast. «È un bilancio positivo, c’è un segnale di ripresa dei consumi rispetto alle ultime stagioni. Speriamo che questo trend si possa confermare anche nei mesi seguenti». Sulla stessa lunghezza d’onda Daniela Dallavalle, titolare dell’azienda che porta il suo nome, presente a Mosca con il brand di punta Elisa Cavaletti che ha perfino sfilato in passerella. «Per quanto riguarda la fiera, c’è stato un incremento di presenze rispetto alle ultime due edizioni. Questo,insieme al positivo andamento delle nostre vendite in Russia,confermano le proiezioni positive sulla crescita economica in Russia nel 2017 (grazie anche all’aumento del prezzo del petrolio, aumento del valore del rublo, e stabilizzazione rapporti Usa/Russia). Il nostro distributore in Russia – aggiunge – ci rappresenta con entusiasmo e con diverse attività di marketing rivolte a interlocutori avvalorano il Made in Italy di cui Daniela Dallavalle Spa, in special modo il brand Elisa Cavaletti, da sempre si fa promotore. Difatti da anni ogni etichetta porta la dicitura “Sono Italiano”».

DETOX, FOR A CLEAN FASHION

0

Companies joining  the Greenpeace Detox campaign pledge to eliminate toxic substances and greening the production  chain in order to supply the big global brands according to the highest standards in the textile sector. Carpi Fashion System too  fosters  the theme of Green Fashion supporting  free courses and advice.

Schermata 2016-12-19 alle 09.23.47Overlooking the importance of the “eco-friendly” philosophy  can cost very much  in the Fashion world.  Companies and brands  neglecting  the issue of sustainability  are  likely to end up in the gunsight  of the media and environmental groups, animal-rights or  protection of workers activists,  ruining this way  their reputation. There are cases destined to remain for a long time  in the collective imagination as those of Moncler, Benetton and Roberto Cavalli. On the other hand,  eco-friendly fashion is a great opportunity for companies engaged  in a  production without toxics as  it is taking roots,  among the international brands and backwards on their supply chains, the theme of responsible management of  dangerous chemical substances.

Not surprisingly, the fashion district of Prato has already signed the Greenpeace Detox commitment, the higher standard: at present about twenty companies  but for the first time the  Detox standard is adopted by an entire production chain.

Carpi Fashion System too fosters  the theme of clean fashion supporting  Formodena which offers  free courses and advice with the support of the Region Emilia Romagna and the co-financing of the European Social Fund: the presentation seminar was held last Monday, 12 December  at  Sala dei Cimieri by  Emilio Bonfiglioli , textile chemist  and Fabio Guenza, business consultant  in Sustainable Marketing and Responsible Internationalization.

“Joining  the My Fashion Greenpeace Detox campaign – says Bonfiglioli – presupposes a conscious decision by the company to which it is   asked to eliminate the use of all dangerous  chemicals by 2020: alkylphenols, phthalates and  azo dyes which are dangerous   to the reproductive system and cause cancer, and chlorinated solvents, chlorobenzenes and  heavy metals”. According to Bonfiglioli, “it is a choice practically forced by the market: in China, where  a strict control of incoming goods according to the standard GB-2010 PROTECTED (which fixes the requirements  for the protection of consumer safety)  is applied,  the risk that imported textile products do not pass through customs is real “. At present, the safety data sheets of products used by the  fashion system – adds Guenza – are seriously incomplete  and does not safeguard  producers and consumers. With Detox the philosophy changes radically  and, consequently, the company  organization and the entire production chain . For example when we buy a pair of jeans,  moved  by a particular effect or washing, we should take into account  what kind of manufacturing and finishings  there are   behind.

The jeans sandblasting for example is a denim bleaching technique that can be lethal to the workers of the sector. One of the more serious consequences is caused by the use of silicon dioxide powder, that can be easily inhaled and lead to serious diseases.  With Detox it’s  about to begin to make  fashion in a different way .

TEXTILE SECTOR  – PRESENTED THE TRAINING COURSES  OF FORMODENA

Schermata 2016-12-19 alle 09.57.05

CARPI – The seminar presentation of the courses dedicated to the Green Fashion took place last Monday at    Sala dei Cimieri at Palazzo dei Pio. The courses are  organized by Formodena thanks to the financial resources of the  European Social Fund, granted by the Emilia Romagna Region.  The seminar, supported by the project Carpi Fashion System, was attended by about  twenty district companies and   textile operators in order to know   the opporunities offered by the courses on fundamental principles of sustainable green products and textile processes.

The courses, which will start at the beginning of 2017 and will take place in Formodena headquarters  (with the possibility of individual counselling to companies) will focus on various topics.

The first course (15 hours) focused on “Detox: health and environment in  fashion industry”, will be conducted   by the chemist Emilio Bonfiglioli (pictured) and  will deepen the rules of the European Reach Regulation and the principles of the Detox campaign launched by Greenpeace which requires, by 2020, the elimination of eleven toxic substances in the world of textile production. The second one “The chemistry we dress”, always conducted by Bonfiglioli  for 15 hours, goes  into detail: from the list of dangerous  substances and toxic material traceability, by checking the responsibilities for manufacturers. The third course (20 hours), will be conducted by Fabio Guenza and will be addressed to  aspects related to communication and marketing of “sustainable fashion”.  The business consultant has in fact explained to the audience that  the fact of neglecting  the concept of “clean fashion” may involve reputational and image risks, since the theme of fashion “zero impact” is spreading like wildfire among the most  famous brands: nowadays in fact   28 international brands and 50 Italian suppliers  are already engaged in Detox.   (CLA.ROS.)

Winning wefts for Fashion

0

The  Umberto Rossi’s company, managed with his wife  Wilma and his daughter  Sabrina,  makes the difference in knitted fabrics since 1980.

Thanks to the technological updating of the machines and the levels achieved in the finishing of cloths”. Samples of four hundred articles per year.Schermata 2016-12-19 alle 09.28.34

«All weaving mills manufacture knitted fabrics, fleece and jersey cloths. What makes the difference are the machine programs   and the following  finishings: it is in this stage that a fabric  becomes fashion». With Tessitura Rossi, Umberto Rossi and his wife Wilma, pattern maker, and thanks to the decisive contribution of their  daughter Sabrina, the difference in  fabrics begins in  1980, the year of foundation of the company. «But we are in the industry since before– he says – when we started with a knitwear factory coupled to  a weaving mill: then we decided  to continue with the production of fabrics only».

It’s just a word, the term “fabrics”. Designed by the style office, managed by Sabrina,  the production   ranges from fleece to jersey and includes interlock, jacquard, terry cloths, stretch fabrics and  rubbed, flocked,  laminated finishings. And the striped fabrics, a company peculiarity,  result of the processing of electronic machines very rare in Italy. «Usually – resumes Rossi – our collections consist of about four hundred articles per year, in which it is expressed our research. In this sector the research is just that: to make a piece, then another one, maybe a little more dense or a little more  soft, to  try a jacquard, to replace a color, to experiment, to adapt a griffed article to another price range…».

This  is a clear message, addressed to all those who, when   the term “research” is matched  to the word “sample”,  turn up their noses, as if the figure of 92 million, the 9 percent of the entire turnover of the sector, invested every year in the textile district of Carpi,  was not a very respectable investment in innovation and creativity.

To realize all this  it’s sufficient  to take a walk  in the sample rooms where in big shelves you can see the production of about forty years, collected and organised  year by  year: a sort of rich and extensive library of samples  which reflect the boundless work of ideas, fantasy, selection of materials, weaving techniques elaborated in the  softwares  and finishing methods which can be summed in the worf ‘research’.

This innovation  vocation received, recently, an original and unusual recognition from the television exploitation of the Brand Unique collection which used knitted fabrics of the  Rossi factory to “dress” the characters of the television series “I Medici” dedicated the famous Florentine family.

«You can not stand still for a moment in the design of softwares  and finishings – reflects Umberto Rossi – and if I think of the very basic productions of the beginning, I must say that every year we have tried to increase the product range, arriving to fulfil  both the quantities required by  large chains and the small quantities commissioned by  niche manufacturers». Anyway the driving force of the Rossi weaving mill is the design and style office. It’s there that   the knitted fabric becomes fashionable,  that  the processing software for the machines and finishing ideas  are suggested.  It is the context in which  Sabrina Rossi acts: “She is  the mind – confirms Umberto Rossi – she’s very good at studying the new samples, inspired by customer feedbacks, by travels, by  the great metropolis showcases. And from the street, because it is from there  that  trends come to life».
