Made in Town
As the holidays approach, Made in Town presents an ephemeral selection of furniture, objects, accessories and clothing. For this winter inventory, Made in Town gathers the work of twenty ateliers of different disciplines proposing a variety of products, each born from local fabrication.
Inventory is a month-long event presenting objects chosen by Made in Town for their exceptional conception and fabrication in connection with local production, whether in France or abroad. It also reflects the collaborations with local fabricators that have been staged by Made in Town throughout the past year.
Made in France: Inventory welcomes furniture from designers ONM and Atelier[jes], made-to-measure men’s jackets from Elégance de la Révolte, shirts produced by Confection des Deux-Sèvres from fabric from Virtuose (now Emanuel Lang), a series of silk scarves printed by e.g.m., produced by Label XVI and hand-rolled by Genète and pleated dresses from fashion designer Anahide Saint-André produced by Plissés de France and Confection de Sully.
Made in Italy: Handwoven ties from Textile Soleil, classic menswear reinterpreted by Sartoria Ripense, artisanal hats from Antica Manifattura Cappelli, and cashmere accessories knit by Il Borgo round out the bunch.
This event is supported by the House of Denmark in Paris.
From the promotion of Made in Italy products to the safeguard of the artisanal values that have made Rome famous throughout the world, AltaRoma’s mission is based on maximizing the excellence of the fabrics, from the most traditional right up to the current haute couture, through exhibitions and catwalks.
