BbongianaBack to top
Maxi duffels, backpacks and small pochettes. In a search for essentiality, Barbara Bongiana has attempted to “take away” as much as possible, eliminating all the hardware, replacing it with the same materials the bag is made of. Like the Cellophane model, inspired by the black plastic bag that the artist Koenraad Dedobbeleer had left inside one of his installations, made in treated calfskin leather.
Caterina MarianiBack to top
Caterina Mariani Bijoux presents it 2013 spring summer collection, inspired by the shapes and colours of nature. The season’s must is the cherry, which comes as a painted bronze pendant in a maxi version or as brooch and lucky earring in a mini version. Plus earrings with enamelled butterflies in soft pastels, clear glass bead necklaces with violets, hydrangeas and roses made by hand, together with colliers featuring huge rhinestones and powder pink or multicolour feathers.
GuenBack to top
First time debut for a capsule that is the result of a desire to dress a woman ready to experiment new visions of herself. An eclectic mix of innovative spirit and top-level tailoring, with special attention to the reworking of must-haves in the female wardrobe.
Half an HourBack to top
The sources of inspiration here is the seabed, neutrals teamed with dayglo colours, in the new capsule of tops and dresses entirely hand-embroidered. Linear, geometric shapes embrace a refined universe of detail: sequins, crystals and acrylic stones.
ManebìBack to top
Based on the historic Spanish espadrille, Manebì develops a comfortable, glam, chic hand-made shoe enhanced by careful study of fabrics - linens, cottons and suede - and all-Italian design. The models are called Panarea, La Havana, St Tropez and Hamptons.
Trenta7Back to top
Masculine with a feminine twist. Both hollow and solid. Broken tips, fake zips and buckles. Contrast and optical illusion are the thread running through footwear designed by Eleonora Moccia – formerly at Pollini and Rochas – that aims to redefine minimal. All produced in top quality leathers in the footwear district of San Mauro Pascoli.
