Italian Designs To Watch For: Smarteez and Miwa By Carol Nemoto/ Binzento Giveaway

Up-and-Coming Italian Designers We ... 
During the time Binzento Vincente blog visited Milan for MFW, correspondents/photographers KO and Raniti had a chance to attend several events at the Fashion Hub in Sala Parlamentino. One of which was the new Italian fashion designers presentation, which we saw Smarteez, and also fashion designers temporary showroom where we spotted Carol Nemoto. We loved both of these new talented designers. Each expresses very distinctive visions of contemporary fashion designs.

It was our first time visiting the work by fashion label, Smarteez. Inspired by the African culture (where it was originally from), SS13 collection continues to bring audience the high energy of vibrant colors. I liked the pleats detail on its dresses, very much reminded me one of my favourite designer Issey Miyake. With the addition of geometric prints, simple dresses marvelously highlighted female body forms and beauty.

Miwa by Carol Nemoto
At the showroom, we met Carol Nemoto, a Japanese designer for her label called Miwa. Having background in both fashion and industrial designs, it was evident that Miwa SS13 collection is more than simple garments sewn together. Carol Nemoto has the ability to construct pieces using various materials including wool, fabric, rubber and silk. The collection was overall very architectural, and it takes experience and knowledge to master the "chemistry" behind each element. It's always nice to see designers who utilize efficiently both art and science in their fashion designs.


Canon Bloggers Event
A good camera is a blogger essential. Canon had sponsored the Milan fashion events during MFW. They invited bloggers to special Canon products presentation at the Fashion Hub. It was pretty cool to see other fashion bloggers (Italian) at the special presentation. Oddly enough, though it was a "bloggers gathering" we were the only few that carried cameras that day…Perhaps they are expecting us to take their pics? …
