The leading fabric and accessory producers as well as the apparel sourcing industry, designers and product managers have been using BREAD & BUTTER BARCELONA as a meeting point for years already – with THE SOURCE, this industry is provided with its own platform for marketing and communication in the centre of BBBarcelona.
In January 2009, THE SOURCE will be open to all B&B visitors and takes place in two central locations:
THE SOURCE PAVILION – THE PEAK OF DENIM
In Luna Park, THE SOURCE presents numerous greats of the denim industry. Innovative denim weavers, finishers and associated accessory producers present their products in the creatively designed, denim-dedicated THE SOURCE pavilion. Among the exhibitors are Blastex – Jeans Finishing Systems, Bottonificio BAP, Candiani Premium Selvedge, ITV Industria Tessile del Vomano, Limonta, Okinawa, r&dlab, Reca Group and Royo.
“CREATIVE R'EVOLUTION – 50 YEARS OF FLUXUS” FROM THE ARCHIVIO BONOTTO
In an own hall on the second level above Urban Superior, a very special THE SOURCE highlight can be found: “CREATIVE R'EVOLUTION – 50 Years of Fluxus from the Archivio Bonotto”, an exhibition with works of the Fluxus movement, curated by renowned weaver Luigi Bonotto.
The 120 objects exhibited at THE SOURCE, among them major Fluxus works, come from one of the world’s most comprehensive collection of this revolutionary art movement, the Archivio Bonotto.
Fluxus started at the beginning of the 1960ies and is a form of action art, which, under the motto “all is art”, is mainly occupied with the subjective relation between everyday objects and art. Artists such as Joseph Beuys, George Brecht and George Macunias found their artistic home in this movement.
This extraordinary exhibition at THE SOURCE will be enriched by life performances by the artists Ben Patterson and Philip Corner, as well as by an installation by Ben Vautier, exclusively created for BBBarcelona.
The vernissage will take place on Wednesday, 21 January 2009 at 5:30 p.m. at THE SOURCE on the second level above Urban Superior. We are especially proud to welcome Luigi Bonotto as the host.
UNITED TRENDS OF B&B AND STYLESIGHT
In cooperation with the leading New York trend agency Stylesight, B&B has developed numerous new and innovative trend seminars. The interactive seminars show the most important tendencies and social developments from the areas of fashion, fabrics, lifestyle, music and Youth Culture, and mirror the core segments of BREAD & BUTTER BARCELONA and THE SOURCE:
“A World of Extremes” gives a preview on colours, fabrics and silhouettes for S/S 2010; “Mix Masters” examines the influence of music and technology on current Street Wear trends as well as the combination of runway-, street and vintage inspirations with music, art and technology. Within “Fabrics of the Future”, leading fashion fabrics producers discuss eco fabrics, performance fabrics and new material innovations. In “The Zeitgeist: A User’s Manual”, Jason Campbell, Editor-in-Chief of “The JC Report”, reveals the ‘places to be 2009’.
Apart from that, there will be an exclusive Denim Talk on Wednesday, 21 January: “GLOBAL DENIM CULTURE: RAW & UNCUT” speakers are industry greats such as Giorgio Presca (VF Corporation), Alberto Candiani (TRC Candiani), Umberto Brochetto (Rad Rags), Yuji Honzawa (Doctor Denim Honzawa) and Sabine Compagnon (WAD Magazine). All seminars as well as the Denim Talk have been developed exclusively for BREAD & BUTTER and THE SOURCE and will solely be presented in an especially built auditorium on the first floor of the Urban Superior Area. The talk will be presented by industry insiders Bruno Collin (WAD Magazine) and Jason Schlossberg (Stylesight).
A TRIBUTE TO DENIM BY B&B DESIGN
This season, BREAD & BUTTER is pleased with continuing its cooperation with the “Antwerp Royal Academy of Fine Arts” within the B&B Design project. Under the direction of Creative Director Walter van Beirendonck, 50 first-year students (B.A.) show their works in the exhibition “The denim skirt; 50 interpretations of a contemporary classic”.
For the first time and exclusively for BREAD & BUTTER, the students have designed denim skirts, for traditionally, the first design assignment at the renowned fashion school is the creation of a skirt. Top denim producer TRC Candiani has provided the denim for this project. Apart from Walter van Beirendonck, the students were supervised by the well-known professors Chris Fransen, Nellie Nooren, Yvonne Dekock and Chris Gillis.

From pit stop to passing manoeuvre – every sequence of the race will be shown live on a mega-screen.
