The winning debut of A New Point of Materials
Around them, in fact, Lineapelle has built a stimulating narrative of events, debates and live performances capable of taking on an extremely burning issue, that of the so-called “alternative materials”, giving them an evolutionary reading of great relevance and usefulness. All this in the light of a concept that pushes sustainability beyond what has become its empty banality. Here, then, that guiding every step of the new Lineapelle hub (organized in collaboration with D-house by Dyloan (Urban Laboratory), C.L.A.S.S. (Creativity Lifestyle and Sustainable Synergy) and the consultation of Orietta Pelizzari, was the “new” common denominator of responsible innovation.
A library in progress
A New Point of Materials involved those who attended the fair with its dimension (also) as a library in progress that collected, presented and explained “a fine selection of leathers and materials characterized by an evolved and evolutionary green content, telling them all along the arc of their production cycle. It did so, starting from the strategic choices of each company in relation to the theme of responsible innovation which, then, are transformed into performing products capable of satisfying a new generation of values ”.

The landing in New York
The first evolutionary leap of A New Point of Materials was almost immediate. One month after Lineapelle closed, on 20 October, the launch of ReClothe, a platform created by Fashion 4 Development together with C.L.A.S.S. Eco Hub, took place yesterday in New York. ReClothe “is configured as a catalyst for skills across all fashion supply chains”, explains Giusy Bettoni, CEO of C.L.A.S.S. In other words, it is a center of expertise that “wants to inform and educate professionals of the fashion system and students in relation to the new generation of green values”. Values such as circularity (the real one) and, by extension, as “responsible innovation”. And here, A New Point of Materials comes into play.
Strengthened by the Milan recent experience, “we thought it was important and strategic – explains Lineapelle CEO, Fulvia Bacchi – to take advantage of the opportunity to be present in New York with this far-reaching and topical project. An importance increased by the fact that, for reasons related to the pandemic, we are not able to organize our Lineapelle New York fair yet”. So, the launch of ReClothe was enriched by the presence of A New Point of Materials, thanks also to the active participation of the Italian Culture Institute of New York, which hosted for three days, in its rooms, the exhibition of the leathers and innovative and responsible materials that were the protagonists of the project debuted at Lineapelle.
