For the second year in a row, the Leopolda di Firenze will host DaTE, now in its 6th edition.
The event is now sold out with bookings from over 200 brands. Dedicated to avant-garde eyewear, this year the event adds two new exhibit areas: Timeless and Spring.
The former is designed for businesses whose collections are focused on timeless shapes, symbolic of a kind of modernity that has its roots in the past but keeps a watchful eye on the future; Spring, instead, will be staged in the Alcatraz area and will welcome, among others, a handpicked group of about 20 innovative businesses, either making their debut at the show or returning to DaTE with new formats, featuring fun, minimal pop-up stands.
The other exhibition areas remain the same in 2018 – Luxury, for collections from the more luxury-oriented and exclusive brands; Millennials, dedicated to the younger brands that dictate new streetstyle trends; Icons, the hub for products from the most well-known avant-garde designers; and Balcony, for companies with projects in line with the DaTE philosophy.
DaTE takes place on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September from 10am to 7pm, and on Monday 24th September from 10am to 5pm.
Registration is now open.
