The 'Made in Italy' label has always implied quality of craftsmanship, based in tradition. During the following week we aim to engage with our most exciting talents showcasing during Milan's 'Moda Donna' events. This week's newsletter is dedidacted to those linking tradition with innovation..
M O S T W A N T E D Luxurious, hand-crafted, unique
This week we picked a hand-crafted ring in enamel and brass; be at one with nature by wearing the Lethargy Moth Ring by Milan's Vernissage. Silk and steel instead have been applied to create the stunning Polar Square Neck Piece by Chiara Scarpitti. Rustic but minimal in soft cowhide leather, the Oil Stain Edition Bag by Aus Dem from Venice. Channel the moon's crater-covered landscape in the other-worldly Triple Ring by Voodoojewels. Or go for a hand-finished necklace in oxidised sterling silver and Brazilian Agate: the Praying Mantis Necklace by Mario Salvucci.
With the latest technology allowing anyone to be 'Front Row' at fashion shows from their own home, these once exclusive events as we know them are changing. One person who directly deals with this in her work is Lissy von Schwarzkopf, one of the PR Directors of Karla Otto in London. Originally established in Milan in 1982, the PR firm Karla Otto today runs its offices in Paris, Los Angeles, New York and Hong Kong. Lissy and her team cover the most prominent markets with a full range of services in the fashion and luxury sectors.
With fashion deeply rooted in his family history, it's no surprise that Milan-based Paolo Errico has had great success following the family trade. Errico has previously worked for Calvin Klein, Versace, Zegna and Cavalli, before launching his own house in 2004. A strong believer in the serious side of creativity, he has made it his goal to sustain his label without compromising quality or his design principles.
