Isole & vulcani: Sobre el volcán la flor
Geothermic energy, reptiles, volcanic rock, obsidian, black beachside sand. The rough nature of the Aeolian Islands is the powerful inspiration behind the Isole&Vulcani beachwear line. The project began taking shape mid-way through the Eighties in a small boutique on the island of Filicudi, thanks to the intuition of Roman stylist Daniela Fadda. The leitmotif, a minimal use of stitching, and wearability combined with the comfort of natural fibers like cotton jersey. In 2013, the son of Daniela, Cristiano Fini, launched the brand on an international level, supported by the artistic direction of his wife Sara Goldschmied, who is part of the famed artistic duo Goldschmied & Chiari.
