The CICB, the Brazilian Centre for the Tanning Industry, and the Brazilian Leather Project have launched the Preview do Couro (Leather Preview Exhibition), which brings together a collection of Brazilian leathers developed to anticipate future fashion trends.
First exhibited at Inspiramais in Sao Paulo, Leather Preview will be showcasing the Summer 2018 collection at the upcoming editions of ACLE, the All China Leather Exhibition in Shanghai, and Premiere Vision Leather in Paris.
Focused on promoting leather exports, 15 Brazilian tanneries are participating in the first international edition of Preview do Couro. Each tannery has developed a unique article for the exhibition under the consultancy of the Brazilian designers Walter Rodrigues, Ramon Soares and Marnei Carminatti.
For its Summer 2018 edition, the hides have been worked with layers of plastic resins, embroidery, contours and prints. The collection has been inspired by the works of Irish born artist Francis Bacon, widely known for depicting themes connected to social taboos.
