For Arsutoria, the workshop School, openness and permeability with respect to the industrial world, and not only, of footwear and handbags has always been a given, as the next pages show: participation in international workshops, competitions, fashion shows, visits to important names in fashion, such as Hugo Boss, in-depth classroom seminars held by renowned brands. These are all opportunities for openness and growth for the students, who thus have the chance to add a set of experiences of incalculable value to their already rich course of study.
It is said that with a retro touch you can never go wrong. More risky is daring to venture designs with wondrous and funambulistic shapes. If you really want to be sure to get in tune with the hot summer season then you should go for elements that lead back to naturalness.
These are the main themes that characterize the coming hot season; themes that somehow recall very current trends and style ideas and that will certainly ensure good sales for an industry that better than others has ridden the post-pandemic rebounds.
Note the tendency to remain a little under the radar, to not shout glamour but whisper it with pastel shades that are not at all excessive. Or to not flaunt, but rather choose few accessories or flashy buckles. A mood undoubtedly directed at rediscovering that simple elegance that survives the gusts of trends.
SIMAC TANNING TECH 2023 in September remains the internationally recognized fair as a unique opportunity where technology and innovation, especially Italian, play an important role in the manufacturing landscape of the footwear, leather goods, tannery, automotive and furniture sectors.
The 21st UITIC 2023 congress is the historically most important international event for the industry. Technical figures from the entire manufacturing system have an opportunity to grasp new solutions to be implemented in processes.
Arsutoria School has been in existence since 1947. It does not remember this as mere show-off, but rather uses its deep knowledge of the trade and the industry to train professionals who can approach the world of footwear and leather goods design and production with a very high, and now rare, level of expertise.
In the interview with Alviero Martini, in the company of actress Manuela Arcuri, we talk about travel, the discovery of otherness and the importance of touching the quality of fashion proposals with one’s own hands.
At MIPEL it was just that, to return to touch the many proposals of the brands and observe the trends for the upcoming Fall Winter 2023/24.
Shoe enthusiasts, more creative designers, aspiring entrepreneurs or production technicians ask themselves all the time: what will be the right place to acquire the skills that can help me enter or grow in such a fascinating but very complex industry as fashion accessories? In the next few pages they will find the point of view of someone who has been training shoe fanatics for over seventy years.
In this issue of Arsutoria we have tried to measure the type of technological innovations, for the footwear and leather goods worlds, proposed and introduced by industry players during Simac Tanning Tech 2022, the most important international event dedicated to the topic.
The last edition of Mipel, held in September 2023, unveiled the trends for the next spring/summer 2023.
The bags will be marked by rustic atmosphere and retro style, defined by the overbearing return of the bucket bag, but also by the contrast between the functionality of the much-loved backpacks and the aesthetics of bags as design objects.
Attention to detail seems to characterise most of the proposals seen at Expo Riva Schuh & Gardabags for next spring summer 2023.
Arsutoria School has continued to invest in new courses and machinery over the past two years, and now the export numbers of Italian leather goods prove it right. So then it’s starting a new season full of initiatives and collaborations with important companies in the sector.
