Italian Buying Trip - Milan

A day at one of the biggest trade leather shows in Milan yesterday was very useful and I ordered some lovely new leathers for the autumn / winter 19 range including a metallic python, a two tone grey / black lizard and a design that I am having made exclusively for Peachy in blues and tans. Some great ideas came from my meeting with my Swarovski and the pearl buckle manufacturers and we worked on some really pretty samples which they are making up for me. As ever with the Italians I saw some over the top fashion statements from people visiting the exhibition, a pair of long hairy boots (she looked a bit like a shire horse – only an Italian would wear these!) and a man wearing a shirt with the Gucci logo stamped all over it! So some lovely new belts and buckles will be on the way for autumn.hides
