MILAN — A global bazaar of 146 fashion talents plucked from six continents displayed their creative spring collections at the 10th edition of the Super talent scouting and research trade fair at The Mall in Milan’s Porta Nuova area, running Sept. 23 to 25. Fair organizer Pitti Immagine and its collaborators increasingly vet prospective exhibitors for original stories, creativity, culture, craft and social content to fertilize the roots of the fashion system.
“This trade show was born of the idea of doing real scouting,” said Raffaello Napoleone, chief executive officer of Pitti Immagine, the Florentine group that organizes the fair. In his mind, that meant not only connecting promising labels to buyers but also showcasing a pool of talent for recruitment. Many Super exhibitors have already been asked to do special lines for notable brands, Napoleone reported.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
