Pitti Filati: 81st edition Report for AW18-19
Pitti Filati, the important international event showing the yarns and colours for AW18-19 trends for the fashion industry, took place at the Fortezza da Basso in Florence on June 28-30th. An optimistic mood was set at the 81st edition of Pitti Filati, celebrating mills, talent and creativity.
For A/W 18/19 the Spazio Ricerca trend area was all around the idea of MAN and HUMANITY and the key themes are: Master, Humanity, Nature and Motion, Real, Eating.
The Master theme brings us bold and comfortable shapes, inspired by Rudolf Steiner, who has influenced all areas of contemporary culture, and is beyond fashion and history.
Humanity looks at our genetic and cultural heritage inspiring warm tactile textiles and nude colours, while Nature is inspired by the concept of balancing spiritual development and physical well being.
The next three themes are Motion, Real and Eating.
Motion explores the art of movement and light through the use of garments and variations of colours, with an ACTIVE color palette.
Real explores the sense of natural colours and finishings as well as a focus on traditional dyeing processes and raw materials, while Eating combines the desire for wellness with sustainability with a fresh palette based on edible greens and earth-brown tones.
