The pivotal role of regional cooperation for the long-term growth of the European textile and clothing sector
The 7th EURATEX Convention, organized on 24 October in Ontinyent (Valencia, Spain) by the Consejo Intertextil Espanol (CIE), gathered over 200 participants from the textile and apparel sector, as well as prominent figures from regional and national representations. Hosted for the first time in Spain, the event was an opportunity to exchange views and present approaches for regional collaboration, to encourage the development and modernization of the fashion and textile industries.
Milano Unica for Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 appears to indicate that the current focus on sustainability and performance is producing real results. Designs were attractive and varied, with Merino wool featured as a major fibre in the mix.
The collection commences with Franklin Eugene Fury, a stunning multi color blazer, and quickly segues to several light and breezy shirts in black and white before making a bold return to color with a nod to WAKANDA. The presentation smoothly shifts gears to several audacious teal and black installations. Next, we have a FRANKLIN EUGENE homecoming of sorts with an abundance of ultra clean black and white colorless silhouettes that magnificently channel the clean lines and affect that remain hallmarks of the brand.
