Knitwear, Italian style
True to its role as a platform for flatbed knits of all markets and inspirations, Knitwear Solutions is enriching its international creative offer.
Italy is the leading country represented at Knitwear Solutions. For the first time, and in an effort to showcase the high-quality know-how of the Italian knitters, Knitwear Solutions is presenting a selection of products developed by Italian exhibitors. These pieces are truly outstanding in terms of their style and technological content, and are featured in a display prepared by Federico Poletti, a journalist and founder of the website Maglifico.com/The Knit Journal, and Marco Sanarelli, the president of Mely’s Knitwear, an Italian leader in luxury knits.
For the first time on show a series of rare and vintage pieces coming from cultural institutes like The Archivi Mazzini originate from Attilio Mazzini’s idea and passion for anything special. Started at the end of the 1970s, Mr. Mazzini began to research and collect pieces through original colours, shapes and designs. Nowadays, the garments and accessories in his collection number more than 250.000. The Archivi Mazzini aren’t just a fashion museum, but a cultural project geared towards companies in the fashion industry, schools and professionals.
