ITALIAN PANORAMA

// Focus on Brands to check out which choose the Bel Paese to develop their talents

WORDS BY TEA BARBAGALLO

Different styles, stories, realities and ideas that come together when it comes to talent and quality choices.
Fil rouge is Italy that gives to ambitious just born or already established projects the value that is required.
From some brand new identity to the ones which already got the hype, we selected four creative designers that make us proud of our Motherland.

ARCHIVIO
The brand was founded in Milan in 2016 by Cecilia Federico and Rosita Giammarino.
Contemporary and essential couture, with a proverbial attention to visual communication and a rigorous Made in Italy, are the basis of this subversive harmony. Fashionable, feminine and unisex are the other ingredients that make the brand unique and fresh.The girls behind the sophisticated soul of Archivio put their imaginary inside their cloths, one antithesis of the other to re-exemplify their daily aesthetics in their collection, shuffling from modern to classic.
The result is a clear and clean stylistic line with hybrid shapes where female and male aesthetics speak the same language. After months of struggle and research up and down through Italy here the new spring summer collection with an androgynous and unconventional twist.

OFF WHITE
Designed and directed by the versatile Virgil Abloh, who for those who do not know it is architect, engineer, graphic artist and establish DJ, Off White is a fashion label rooted in current culture at a taste-level particular of these times.
Founded in 2014 all products are based on a concept that adapts and evolves from season to season. Manufacturing is based in Milan with the brand’s core value to be 100% about particular fabrics, fit and fabrication.

VOODOO JEWELS
Lidia Lazzari, Rome based, is the creative mind behind the brand.
After having attended courses at Central Saint Martin in London and an internship at Nanis, she decided to focus on developing her personal project.
The ispiration of the collections arises from the study of nature and the relationship that humans have with it.
In tribal cultures, voodoo objects are invested with magical qualities, they are the bond between the human dimension and the spirits of nature. Likewise, the Voodoo creations are the link between a terrestrial reality and an enchanted world made up of spirits and ghosts.
