playful or fanciful; out of the ordinary.
The perfect word to describe my world as a child. I was raised by grandma Ana Maria, who taught me that I could use my imagina- tion for everything. She used to build me castles with bed sheets and tell me fairytales. In one day she was an indian and in the other she was Zorro, I could be any character and my dreams could always be true.
I tried to carry all this feelings to a more minimal Autumn collection. Silky draped fabrics and strong colors are the stars of this collection.
Our materials are upcycled, which means that we bought leftovers from big factories and decided to reuse them in our collection. Our silk is certified and this year we introduced cupro, which is made from cotton waste fibers.
We hand sew our pieces in our Atelier, so each piece is one of kind.
This year we went to Sicilia, the land of ancient landscapes and timeless traditions. Getting to know Sicilia through the eyes of a sicilian, is always different, their connection with the land is amazing. We traveled from Palermo to Catania, got to know its amazing beaches, lost in time villages and amazing traditions.
Sicilia island is a pearl lost in the mediterranean, the land of fire, oranges and myths. Our new collection Terraferma is inspired not only in this beautiful island and people, but also in its connection to nature: most of the island wild landscapes are untouch by men and the greatest example is mount Etna, or how sicilians call her, Mamma Etna. She represents nature’s power, with her crushing strenght and, at the same time, a symbol of fertility, life, rebirth and transformation.
Each piece of our summer collection tells a story, and every shape, name, material and colour come from Sicilian elements, featuring Etna. Therefore, earth tones and bio and organic materials, are the new additions to our new collection, not forgetting the Sensitive fabrics, 100% made in Italy, reducing waste, the use of water and chemicals.
