MILANO UNICA

Summer 12, Milan - February 7-15, 2011

A wonderful, relaxed atmosphere at Moda In, despite the rain…

To note, a surprising exhibit of vintage 50’s and 60’s Ferrari and Lancia sport cars, smart and ultra-chic!

And an interesting exhibit on soldering for manufacturing (seamless)
"Bond-in diversity"showed in an area with a suspended sail printed with wood planks evoking Noah’s Ark (the idea : "…High tech can be a creative solution to save other species on the same planet …)."Thermo-welding" can be used as decoration or to construct and assemble clothes in technical fabrics, examples were shown on functional or sportswear vintage garments and contemporary creations (lingerie, accessories, trench coats, dresses, etc).
