Carlo Capasa, chairman of the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana, touted the tight collaboration with Pitti Immagine, describing it as an asset for the country’s fashion, especially in menswear.

“Now we have all the time been capable of present the world with the very best fashion content, packaged one of the best ways we could, between Florence and Milan. I’m really convinced that the 2 cities are a single entity showing how good Italians are [in fashion] through two different souls,” he said.

“We’re really close and our rapport is prime; we’ve a responsibility toward the industry, especially in menswear,” echoed Raffaello Napoleone, chief executive officer of Pitti Immagine.

Although inflation is doing its part in fueling revenue growth, Capasa explained that prices of end products have increased only 3 percent, meaning that the 16 percent gain in 2022 sales is to be attributed to growing volumes of fashion goods sold.

The U.S. was confirmed because the strongest marketplace for the sector, with exports there skyrocketing 54.1 percent in the primary nine months of the 12 months. This compares with lower-than-expected growth in China exports, which grew 18.8 percent.
