Preview do Couro – Summer 2018: Soon at Inspiramais, in São Paulo


Summer 2018 is still a long way off, but it’s already part of the leather industry’s daily routine because of Preview do Couro (Leather Preview). This is a show that gathers a collection of leather specially developed to anticipate trends that will sure guide the fashion world in the future.

The result of an thorough and intense work of research and creativity, Preview do Couro - Summer 2018 will be soon presented at Inspiramais – Winter 2017, between June 27th and 28th, in São Paulo. Preview do Couro has the support from Brazilian Leather, initiative focused on promoting leather exports to foreign markets and coordinated by the Centre for the Brazilian Tanning Industry (CICB) in partnership with the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Apex-Brasil).

This edition of Preview do Couro brings 15 participating tanneries. Each company has developed a unique article for the exhibition with the consultancy of designers Walter Rodrigues, Ramon Soares and Marnei Carminatti. “Experimentation is one of the key points for this work, which has in the words adaptation, humor and subversion the essential concepts for stimulating creativity and the search for the new”, says Ramon Soares.

Soares says that the major reference for the consolidation of this edition’s color palette is the work of anglo-Irish artist Francis Bacon, widely known for depicting themes connected to social taboos. This time at Preview do Couro visitors will see hides with layers of plastic resins, embroideries, contours, and printing.

Inspiramais’ official schedule will also feature an exclusive lecture detailing the development of Preview do Couro – Summer 2018. It will take place on June 28th at 5pm, with free entry.

After visiting São Paulo, Preview do Couro will travel the world’s major leather trade fairs alongside the Brazilian Leather project.
