SUPER confirmed its winning characteristics” says Agostino Poletto, General Manager of Pitti Immagine, “and received great appreciation from the buyers who came to Milan and the participating companies. Four days of intense work in a stimulating atmosphere designed to offer the public a fashion product experience and very precise segmentation. The feedback was unanimous on the careful work of selection: the balancing of key companies in terms of product quality, strong brands in the world of capsule collections, alongside the most creative accessories and young designers, such as the ones that came from South America for the Super Talents project in collaboration with Vogue Italia and Vogue Talents, the Armenian designers present in collaboration with the Fashion & Design Chamber of Armenia and the special participation of Stand, among the most acclaimed emerging brands in Scandinavian fashion.  We are very aware that the retail fashion scenario is going through a big evolution and is experiencing a complex moment both in Italy and abroad, and for this reason we want SUPER to be an increasingly buyer-oriented rendezvous that is capable of presenting exciting ideas and products. The location also plays its part in an area that has now become a reference point for fashion presentations in Milan and also in terms of the specific features of the Visconti Pavilion: an architecture that has a great esthetic affinity with Super’s experimental spirit”.
