On September 3rd on the occasion of the opening cocktails for Mipel, Post&Co. was recognized as one of the five finalists in THE ICONS contest in the category NO GENDER. A jury composed of top international buyers was called to evaluate products displayed in the TREND AREA of the fair and to select finalists in the following categories: no gender, beautiful functional, eye catching, timeless and authentic natural. The awards ceremony took place in a location created expressly for the event at the Triennale di Milano, and the president of Mipel, Mr. Braccialini, personally awarded the winners.
The winning products were exhibited at NOOSPHERE XX1 in the NABA Pavilion in collaboration with Domus Academy and Tsinghua University. Awarded the prize for its versatility, the winning accessory was a sporty leather bag worn as a backpack. High quality, innovative and unexpected, ideal for everyday use. Convenient for getting around the city by bike but also big enough for a weekend getaway. Simone Forzieri, one of the owners of Post & Co, reacted to the news saying, “Winning this prize for a bag was big surprise for us considering that our company specializes in belts. However it makes us even happier to know that we have winning taste even in items that go beyond our core business.”
