This upcoming edition of Inspiramais will host the Leather Preview 2020-II, with a particular focus on “the subtle and elegant wear from weather” on leather overtime. “Vegetable-tanned leathers, or those that reproduce this appearance, are fundamental for the collection because they value natural textures”, said Marnei Carminatti, Project Coordinator. Classics that brings sobriety to the colour palate will be showcased, including nappa, suede, and nubuck. According to the organisers, the work developed for the Preview in recent months has been based on trends such as the search for balance, “which has become a mantra for creatives and consumers in the new millennium, in view of the desire for responsible consumption, time, and connection choices, which are essential in relation to products,” added Marnei.

The Preview will also feature footwear made with the collection’s leathers. The event is organised by Assintecal By Brasil Components and Chemicals and the Brazilian Leather Project; a partnership between the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB) and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brazil).
