LINEAPELLE


QUICK SHOW FACTS

Show dates: March 16-18 2010
Location: Bologna Fiera, Italy
Product categories: International exhibition of leather, components, hardware and trims and synthetics for footwear, leather goods, leatherwear and furnishings
Exhibitors: 1040 (Italian 745, Foreign 295)
Key trend directions:

'Less is more' is the overriding trend at this season's Lineapelle where classic leathers in classic colours and plainer skins - focused on texture and finish rather than embellished decorative surfaces - have come to the fore
Prints and more adventurous techniques, meanwhile, were left to the synthetics and fabrics manufacturers.
Exotic skins continue to maintain their importance but were either very natural or fake-looking with over exaggerated embossing
Natural fabrics such as linen, hessian and canvas are also key. Woven and embossed woven leathers added textural interest to an all-together more cleaner season
Other highlights include powdered coatings in soft pastel shades; netted mesh leathers in various sizes; subtle sparkle and shimmering suedes; hardware trends including leather coverings and metal mesh

NICK CAVE





Nick Cave

Nick Cave creates wearable works called “Soundsuits” which are made of materials including twigs, hair, fabric, sequins, bottle caps and many types of found objects. These peices are meant to be worn in performance as well as displayed as sculpture. The Soundsuits alter the shape of the body, for example several of them have elongated heads, and when worn the layers of objects and materials produce sound in response to the movements of the body. Cave deals with race, particularly the experiences of African American men, and the Soundsuits act as an obstacle, a barrier between the wearer and society, as well as being protective. They are very beautiful but at the same time a burden. I have an interest in costuming and the way it affects the appearance and movement of the body that I have explored in the past year, in the form of a shed “skin” raincoat, a unicorn suit with tree stumps for hooves, and a wig made of book pages folded into fanciful shapes. “Nick Cave- Art in Motion” is a youtube video that shows some of the suits in motion with sounds.
