Milano Unica presents: “Nations to Nations” a union of cultures and traditionsThe event dedicated to the A/W 2019-20 trends kicks off the appointment of 10-11-12 July 2018 at the Fiera Milano Rho
“Nations to Nations” is the program manifesto of Milano Unica for the next Autumn-Winter 2019/20 that reaffirms the importance of Milano Unica’s slogan: “United to be Unique” promoting a message of positivity and unity between peoples and cultures.
In terms of trends, the concept of “Nations to Nations" translates into the combination of values tied to tradition, craftsmanship and working knowledge of different countries to recreate a new and more modern storyline that intertwines different cultures, the present and the past, and different languages into a new, timeless perspective. The idea is to play with contrasts of colour, fabric weights, patterns, structures and prints. Always bearing in mind one priority: the fabrics of the future will have to be environmentally friendly by reducing chemicals, waste water, and polluting energy sources.
This leads to the creation of three themes: Organic Grunge involving countries such as Scotland, Turkey and Romania; Handcrafted Essentialism that is explained through the artistic productions and textiles of South Korea, Switzerland and Sweden, and finally, Romantic Techno linked to Belgium, Azerbaijan and Indonesia.
