A PERFECT SUMMER CLOSET
THE ICONIC DENIM OF SHAFT JEANS
American tradition in denim drives the creative evolution of Shaft Jeans, the brand created in 1964 by an artisan from Montpellier, which in 2004 became the directly owned brand of Florentine entrepreneur Francesca Bacci. Completely Made in Italy – from the raw materials to the embroideries and washings – the collections show meticulous attention to citations, fittings, and details. Plus, the vintage look is a must. Constant investments are made in innovative fabrics, like silk denim. From palazzo trousers to gaucho pants, the shaping is always personalized with embroideries, studs, and beads.
ALIGHIERI JEWELLERY POEMS TO BE WORN
Imperfect jewels, slightly melancholic, singular fragments of a treasure chest. The creative universe of Rosh Mahtani’s brand was quick in its rise to success. Born in London and raised in Zambia, with a degree from Oxford, Rosh believes it’s important to emphasize how she does not feel like she is a genuine designer of jewellery. More than technique, in fact, her creations express a love for literature, a study of poetry and a passion for Dante, the great poet for which the brand is named, inspiring a striking series of rings, earrings, and necklaces.
CABAN ROMANTIC PLAYS OF INTARSIA
Androgynous, groundbreaking, and understatedly boho-chic. The Caban Romantic woman is the protagonist of the collection created by the Verona-born fashion designer Massimo Pepe. Increasingly total look, the line of pea jackets is enriched by new models that emphasize the sophisticated repertoire of intarsia. Handcrafted jackets propose leather ribbons on delicate layers of tulle or lace. An all-purpose style for layering over white t-shirts and denim but also cocktail dresses, with each piece reflecting the personality of a cosmopolitan woman.
MANEBÌ ICI LA CÔTE!
Espadrilles, as an icon of Spanish footwear, are covered in fine fabrics, matched with practical outsoles, and filled with a sense of glamour that gives life to the perfect day-to-night shoe for vacations. Manebì, the Italian brand that recalls St. Tropez and the French Riviera in its name, is synonymous with “Mediterranean” research and quality. Espadrilles are handmade by Spanish artisans from La Rioja, while the “sneakers” version sees the light of day in Salento, a district that represents excellence in the production of sporty luxury shoes.
DRESS MUST HAVE BY CHELIDONIA
With the idea that a long dress does not necessarily require a special occasion, the Details Change the Mood mantra expresses the vision of Chelidonia, the brand named after a swallow, which was founded in 2017 by the stylist Chiara Ciolli with the intent of creating a single product based on versatility. Thus, the long dress becomes a daily item, while the short dress is transformed into a skirt. Silk, cotton muslin and viscose silk are alternated with wool blend crêpe or silk nylon twill, while color blocks and grosgrain details are the brand’s stylistic calling card.
