In collaboration with the management students of Institut Français de la Mode, Wanderlust organized a soirée Sur Mesure entitled "The Thread of fashion" on the theme of fashion and craftsmanship, during which Pascal Gautrand led a roundtable in the company of fashion designer Christine Phung, textile designer Tzuri Gueta, and lace-house Sophie Hallette's market director Maud Lescroart. Together, they approached craftsmanship from the angle of innovation and interrogated its role in the enterprises of tomorrow.
A luxury gantier which makes superio quality craft-made gloves to fit all types of hands. Alberto Merola, a third generation member of a family of glovers, whose story began in Naples in 1870, relaunched the company in the 60’s, once again making fashionable that which today is one of the prides of Made in Italy craftsmanship.
Under the title "Complément d’objets", Made in Town is exploring the field of design through the work of designers, architects, craftsmen, artists and furniture manufacturers, and focusing on the most distinctive features of designing, handcrafting or industrially manufacturing objects, furniture and accessories. The first edition highlights the work of wood and the various approaches that go along with it.
In order to promote the know-how and the characteristics of La Rochère glass factory, located in Passavant-la-Rochère in the French department of Haute-Saône, Made in Town conducted a series of six video interviews of French and European designers, who have integrated the know-how of the glass factory into their creations. Each in their own way, they mastered glass.
