"The Board of Directors of Pitti Immagine, chaired by Claudio Marenzi, met yesterday by video conference. On the agenda were the decisions to be taken regarding the calendar of the fairs scheduled for the 2020 summer season.

Considering the evolution of the health emergency in Italy and around the world and in the light of the concrete prospects of an extension to the restrictive measures concerning production and commercial activities and the movement of people, the BoD discussed and deliberated the proposals presented by the CEO Raffaello Napoleone who, together with the heads of the various company departments, had carried out a broad survey of the opinions received from exhibitors, buyers, agents and other members of the trade over the past few weeks.

With this in mind, Pitti Immagine Uomo 98 is confirmed and will move to 2 to 4 September (3 days), once again at the Fortezza da Basso, Florence.

“Over the last few weeks we have obviously been in constant and close contact with manufacturing companies in Italy and abroad,” says Claudio Marenzi, President of Pitti Immagine “as well as with other actors operating in the three textile-fashion sectors, including organizations like Confindustria Moda and Camera della Moda Italiana. The strong request that emerged was to maintain at all costs the leading rendezvous like the Pitti fairs which will be the first fundamental instruments to be activated in order to gradually get the entire commercial fashion industry machine going again. And that is what we will be working on non-stop over the next few months”.

The BoD is also committed to supporting the company’s operatives in the development of all forms of possible collaboration with the government and local authorities for the purpose of economically facilitating the participation at the fairs by members of the trade, as well as ensuring that the events are properly accessible and safe for the people attending.

“In fact, both the exhibiting companies as well as the buyers” adds Antonella Mansi, Vice-President of Pitti Immagine and President of the Centro di Firenze per la Moda Italiana “emphasize the decisive role played by the extraordinary economic measures in the form of non-repayable grants or subsidized loans for incentivizing participation at the next international rendezvous to be held in Italy and abroad. The Government is discussing additional support packages for businesses and, for our part, we will undertake to make our suggestions heard by the Ministero degli Affari Esteri [Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs] through the Agenzia ICE, and by Confindustria, integrating the work already being carried out by the Comitato Fiere Industria [Industry Fairs Committee]”.

ItsNotYouItsMe "Come Thru Thursday Vocals" Features Dance Mood-Groove Tune By Channel Tres! Plus, Smokin'-Saucy Sonics From UPSAHL!

ItsNotYouItsMe "Come Thru Thursday Vocals" features dance mood-groove tune by Channel Tres! Plus, smokin'-saucy sonics from UPSAHL.

“Returning from the release of 2019’s Black Moses EP as well as an official remix of Tyler, the Creator’s “EARFQUAKE,” fast-rising Compton-based innovator Channel Tres has returned with the first single on his new record label Art For Their Good, “Weedman.”

Like most records from Tres, his latest track is a unique marriage between bouncy Detroit house and West Coast rap sensibilities. Delivering woozy vocals over a blown-out G-funk backdrop, Tres offloads lyrics that tread a fine line between nightclub ballad and politics, singing about having to chase down his unreliable weed dealer. At a deeper glance, he examines what it’s like to be a black man in America, whereby the ongoing legalization of the substance marks a stark contrast from the people still suffering lengthy prison sentences due to the war on drugs.

Speaking to HYPEBEAST about the track’s meaning, Tres shares that it’s “about me detailing a time when I was 16 or 17, when there were no dispensaries in LA and you had to find a weedman.” He continues, “It was really stressful when you couldn’t find him or he was unavailable. It has that feeling of LA back in the day and it’s one of the first songs where I perform vocally. I combined sounds I’ve been wanting to make for a long time. It’s a sativa-dominant song.”

In terms of laying his ideas out creatively, he notes Compton legend DJ Quik as a major influence. “I was listening to DJ Quik a lot and I combined the message with the funk by just not being overly preachy. If you’re a fan of music, you’ll hear the influences,” he states. “Like when George Clinton said ‘free your mind and your *ss will follow.’ He did the same thing with his music. I made it groovy and fun but it still has a sociopolitical underlying meaning.”

As for the present, Channel Tres is prepping a new project: “I’m working on a project right now and I guess just trying to get through 2020. I’m writing new music and this is the intro to the new grooves and what I’m doing vocally.”

Stream “Weedman” below. Later this year Tres will mark his Coachella debut, with more material expected to come until then.

For more new music, don’t miss Little Dragon’s sun-drenched album, New Me, Same Us."-
