WHITE Previews Womenswear

WHITE RELIES ON PHENOMENON OF WOMENSWEAR PREVIEWS, THUS BECOMING INCREASINGLY MAN & WOMAN

THE TRADESHOW KEEPS GROWING WITH PARTNERSHIPS, WHILE THE AGREEMENT WITH CNMI SETS SAIL.

WHITE further strengthens with its upcoming edition – on stage from January 14th to 16th – thanks to the success of the MAN & WOMAN formula, thus reaching 270 brands (18% more than the January 2016 edition). The tradeshow is currently the only event capable of showcasing the womenswear previews during the menswear collections, thereby reaching 197 womenswear collections, out of which 63 are hosted in the ONLY WOMAN area.

This edition’s special guest is the Danish brand Wood Wood, that will also tread the Milanese catwalks thanks to the collaboration with CNMI and the partnership with Copenhagen’s fashion tradeshow Revolver, in the framework of the project REVOLVER INSIDE WHITE. The Finnish brand Aalto, designed by Tuomas Merikoski, is Only Woman’s special guest. The new section Friends of WHITE is all set to open its doors with Baltimora Studio and Polly King & Co, under the banner of the synergy with the showrooms. The protagonist of the special project is Momonì, brand created by Michela Klinz, while the crown jewel of the menswear selection is Indian designer Suket Dhir, winner of the 2016 Woolmark’s Prize Award, a menswear rising star who will be in Milan for the first time.

The number of international brands is also growing thanks to the area WOW – WHITE ON WEB, which strengthens its role as a multimedia platform with a selection of cutting edge designers that will be promoted through a live shoot and the editorial focus and communication curated by HIGHSNOBIETY and LUISAVIAROMA.

The Councillor for Labour Policies, Production Activities, Fashion and Design Cristina Tajani has recently stated: “Milan, also thanks to WHITE, has once again shown to be capable of anticipating trends and styles with a special focus on the vision of young creative talents”.

In the MAN & WOMAN section, Esemplare – a Made-in-Italy menswear brand dedicated to those who love adventure – stands out owing to its urban traveler approach. Transit Uomo’s research focuses on a daywear combining premium raw materials and comfort. The spotlights also shine on OOF’s outerwear.

The ONLY WOMAN area hosts the refined creative alchemies shaped by Mes Demoiselles and the architectural shapes of Arnoldo][Battois, accessories brand founded by Silvano Arnoldo and Massimiliano Battois who have chosen WHITE to launch their apparel collection. A craftsmanship approach, though with contemporary aesthetics, for the bags crafted by Hugo Matha. A study of the materials also for Twins Florence, apparel brand founded by designer Linda Calugi, winner of the Ramponi Award. Repetto will be devoted a special area, where they will exhibit their Fall-Winter 2017/18 pre-collection of bags and shoes. The special show, Italian DNA Exhibition, is dedicated to Made-in-Italy design and manufacture, where Botto Giuseppe, producer of yarns and fabrics, will dialog with designer, Maurizio Miri.

A charity project comes to life at the fashion tradeshow. WHITE and MAP Communication will grant visibility and new opportunities to the enterprises from the region Marche based in areas damaged by the earthquakes. In January and February 2017, WHITE is going to make its spaces available for free and three Food & Wine areas will be set up to host the typical products of some food and wine companies coming from the territories hit by the quake.

OPI: New Orleans Collection

From the filigreed iron of its balconies to the jazz and jambalaya that permeate its air, New Orleans personifies grace, gumption and joie de vivre. The city’s indomitable spirit is the inspiration for OPI’s New Orleans collection.

New Orleans Collection by OPI features 12 gorgeous new nail lacquers and matching GelColors that take nails and toes from beignets at Café du Monde all the way to nightcaps on Bourbon Street in style.

Sweet, spicy, soulful and vibrant, the palette is perfect for a town where parades pop up everywhere, and dancing in the streets is de rigueur. Every day is Mardi Gras with shades like “I Manicure for Beads” and “I’m Sooo Swamped.” It’s always fair (albeit steamy) weather, with “Humidi-tea” or “Let Me Bayou a Drink.” Other hues – “Got Myself into a Jam-balaya,” “Rich Girls & Po-Boys” and “Crawfishin’ for a Compliment” – pay homage to the Big Easy’s world-famous cuisine.

“The colors of New Orleans are more vibrant than ever, and we celebrate them wholeheartedly with our New Orleans collection,” says Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. “New Orleans is a place to recharge and revel. One where the atmosphere is delightfully diverse, where the food is epic and where music feeds the soul. We have bottled up a little of that special NOLA culture, all while supporting the city’s remarkable renaissance.”

The ultra-chic venue which boasts a glass-enclosed wall-to-wall view of the iconic Hollywood sign and the Hollywood Hills, says it’s delighted to host Hollywood’s elite, in such an exclusive and elegant space, where the venues festivities at this time of year are normally reserved strictly for the Academy and its events.

With the theme, “New, Next, Now, Legend,” other artists receiving awards include rising star of Survivor’s Remorse and Independence Day 2, Jessie T. Usher, HBO breakout star Issa Rae, creator and executive Producer of HBO’s hit “Insecure,” Golden Globe nominated director Barry Jenkins, Moonlight’s Naomie Harris, and emerging screen talent Janelle Monae, whose turns in both “Hidden Figures” and “Moonlight” have been garnering critical praise, as a rising screen talent worth watching.

The American Black Film institute is a non-profit cinematic arts foundation, whose goal is to preserve and promote the legacy of diverse stories of people of color on film, while enhancing their financial viability and broadening their success.   With Academy Awards weekend as the backdrop, and a new crop of stars on the rise, the word is out that the 2017 ABFI gala promises to be among the events not to be missed. www.americanblackfilminstitute.org.
