Fashion forecasting from ALPA23 March 2006
In line with tradition, Alpa SpA will be present at APLF in Hong Kong to be as close as possible to all their customers in Asia and their production segments in the shoe, leathergoods, garment or furniture upholstery sectors. Alpa will introduce a preview of winter trends well in advance of the actual retail season. In accordance with their new philosophy, Alpa have created a new Fashion Team that is continuously researching new trends, colours and fashion. Under the name 'Atelier Alpafashion' the team is working closely with Italian top fashion stylist and designers. For the two main fashion seasons of the year, Atelier Alpafashion produces many new leather articles that are shown as manufactured prototypes of shoes, handbags, garments and so on. With the qualified support of their technicians, Alpa can offer customers a more concrete and efficient service and can be seen as an ideal partner. At APLF, Atelier Alpafashion will introduce the 2007/2008 autumn/winter colour card and the three 'atmospheres' that inspire the forecasted fashion trends: * Body Atelier, dense, rich shades varying between different hues of red that come together to display borrowed tinges from nature expressing a vintage modern spirit rich in folklore. * Soul Atelier tones descending into a dream-like mist joining with warmer and more delicate hues, transcending again into a long forgotten world of romantic childhood. * Mind Atelier shades of ink blue influence this range, varying between bluish tones and intermingling with former shades relating to classic men's clothing. Alpa offer help and support and say you can always count on Alpa technical assistance.
