Two intimate perspectives of the human soul are revealed in F/W 2015-16 according to style commission of MILANO UNICA: force and sobriety typical of the masculine side of one’s personality vs. an impulse to “think grand”, touching a spectacular nature

Milano Unica ha just presented the F/W 2015-16 Directions characterized by boldness and experimentation.
In addition to recognized international qualities, Italians have often been accused of individualism: even under this profile, we will be trendy for Fall/Winter 2015-16. It will be a season marked by healthy individualism, with a strong sense of personal, where the spirit of each individual will be able to thrive using experimentation and daring.

Fortune favors the bold, yet without the courage to dare and make progress, there will be no boldness or self-expression and research on one’s particular style. By banning uniformity, the Italian and European textile-accessories industry can provide instruments to dare with determination, being able to astound and dazzle with color and brightness, portraying one’s personality in a cosmic utopia, without indulging in superfluous or excessive details.

– as Angelo Uslenghi, Milano Unica trend expert reminds us.

The next edition of Milano Unica is scheduled for September 9-11, 2014 at the Portello in Fieramilano, where these trends will be fully showed.

There are two guidelines: on one hand, an atmosphere of force and sobriety typical of the masculine side of one’ personality, MASCULINE AURA; on the other hand, an impulse to “think grand”, touching a spectacular nature GRAND VISION.
