ILM_SummerStyles-2016_0319I.L.M is the ‘place to be’ for a purposeful ordering. The fair took place from September 10th to 12th in Offenbach and attracted 5,900 visitors. The appointed date and the atmosphere hit the pulse of time for the industry. The foreign visitors represented a percentage of 29% exceeding the rate of last year. An increase also on the side of the exhibitors: 304, meaning 5% more than at the preceding event, displayed their collections for Spring/Summer 2017 comprising bags and small leather goods, travel luggage, business and school items as well as accessories. The fair took place on a 13,500 sqm trade area and, in addition to the fair halls, there was the unique opportunity of the neighbouring Capitol theatre as exhibition area.
ILM_SummerStyles-2016_1115The exhibitors report of a brisk 3-day ordering activity at the I.L.M Summer Styles 2016. The comprising range of the collections and their attractive presentation were underlined by visitors and buyers, in particular the search was for extraordinary products. The fashion shows, newly conceived, stylish and choreographed (as well as the fashion talks) offered a variety of useful impulses and inspiration. The center point of the orders was not the standard item but the unique, the particular one. The fashion trends gave two directions: either casual and washed materials or feminine with decorative details. The favourites in respect of shape were backpacks, bucket bags or boxy bags, also small-sized. Travel luggage and business items surprised with useful and practical details.
Among the highlights of the fair ranged the I.L.M Award: the “Best in Basics” went to Braun Büffel for its excellent manufacture highlighted by purely vegetally tanned leather, the Italian luxury producer Marino Orlandi won in the category “Best in Fashion” with its hand-painted bags and the luggage specialist Vocier was awarded in the category “Best Newcomer”.
Arnd Hinrich Kappe, Managing Director of I.L.M, was satisfied with the success of the fair and put emphasis on continuity and planning confidence:

«The positive results proves the path taken to be the right one.»

The next I.L.M will be from March 4th to 7th 2017 with the collections for Fall/Winter 2017-18, otherwise I.L.M Summer Styles 2017 will take place sooner next year from September 2nd to 4th, following the desires of visitors and exhibitors.

The first July edition (moved up by two months to this earlier date) was in line with the 6000 visiting companies of the September 2016 event, but with a higher international presence and more time spent in the stands. A good result that rewards the decision to bring the date forward.
