The event will be held on Sunday 15thSeptember (4.30 pm) in the Top Buyer lounge: the event will include an institutional moment with the speeches of Franco Gabbrielli, President of the Mipel and Andrea Calistri, Master Artisan and owner of Sapaf Atelier 1954. An event conceived to pay tribute to the history of the brand, but also to show the desire of doing high-quality business that animates the third generation of the Calistri family too: for this reason, on this occasion will also be presented the “Celebrity” collection, a new edition of a historical model of Sapaf Atelier 1954from the early 60s. During the event, some fashion bloggers and influencers will wear and photograph the new line.
The event will also host the "Blogger for a day" project, created in collaboration with Mita - Made in Italy Tuscany Academy (Scandicci, Florence). Some students of the institute will wear and show the bags of the Celebrity collection. They will be coordinated by Flaminia Fiorucci "brand ambassador" of Sapaf Atelier 1954. MITA is a leading higher technical institute, based in Scandicci, at the gates of Florence. The institute offers a wide range of fashion courses focusing on textile, apparel, leather and accessories and works in partnership with several fashion brands, research centers and business associations.
To follow, a cocktail for all the participants, with the wines of San Gregorio Azienda Agricola.
A special thank you for their precious collaboration to:

Particulary, during Moda Italia and Mipel we will present a preview of two new collections: the brand new 'Timeless' and 'The Safari Republic' man collection. For Première Vision we have conceived an installation dedicated to our production process.
Because even leather creations can be pieces of art
SapafAtelier 1954 will participate at an exhibition dedicated to Florentine artisan masters. The name of the exhibition is "Artigianato è arte" and it is organized by Cna Pensionati Firenze. With his bags, Sapaf will show how leather creations can move along the thin line that divides crafts and art, often two sides of the same coin.
