During the seasonal press conference held on Thursday by trade show organizer Pitti Immagine to present the schedule of Florence-based international men’s wear fair Pitti Uomo, running Jan. 10-13, Italian fashion and textile consortium SMI Sistema Moda Italia released its research on the status of the country’s textile and fashion compartment.
According to the study, after a positive first quarter that saw revenues gain 2.2 percent, compared with the same period last year, the second quarter slowed down, posting a 2 percent decrease. This referred to the textile, ready-to-wear and accessories markets. SMI provided a scenario, but not detailed figures.
Super-influencer @chiaraferragni doesn't miss a beat— or a party. Last night, she inaugurated Pomellato's newest boutique on Rodeo Drive, decked out in bling from the jewelry brand.

As the conversation around sustainability only grows stronger in fashion circles, Everlane has made a new declaration: it’s saying goodbye to virgin plastic. The company, whose ethos is all about “radical transparency,” in terms of pricing and ethical factories, plans to be completely free of virgin plastics by 2021. “We’re producing millions of units and every unit that goes out is wrapped in plastic,” said founder and CEO, Michael Preysman. “At the beginning, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s just take off all these plastic bags.’ There are a lot of complications to that. Everything you buy in the world comes wrapped in plastic when it comes out of the factory.”
