Preview Couro 2019: Inspiramais dictates the latest fashion trendsHeld on 16 and 17 January 2018, at the Pro Magno Events Centre in São Paulo, the great protagonist of the Inspiramais fashion trade fair, Preview Couro, shines the spotlight on “Atomic Alchemy”.
Two directions, the first towards the realm of science fiction, and the other towards fantasy, providing a key to interpreting the fashion trends for 2019 through the filter “Atomic alchemy”. The research, once again developed by designer Walter Rodriguez, stimulates the imagination, leading to the confines of reality in the great wake of Rod Serling, the creator of the cult TV series, The Twilight Zone: “Fantasy makes the impossible probable. Science fiction is the improbable made possible”.
Thus, science fiction inspires leathers with finishings, textures and volumes that express a sense of great protection: lacquerings and glossy patent leather, and sparkling shiny surfaces, like protective film that extends across the skin’s surface. Waterproof treatments are suitable for moist environments, offering greater resistance than other materials. There are then extremely smooth rubbery hands, structures with solid grain, and shining and glossy finishes. In the realm of fantasy, instead, the reigning protagonists are explosive elements and sparkling cosmos, with metallic laminates inspiring an alchemy between nature and chemistry.
