Are you ready to live an all-Italian summer? Starting to discover cities of art, wonderful landscapes, culinary delicacies and many new Made in Italy brands? We obviously do. From Rome downwards, five places, five young brands made in Italy. Special stages to share with you! Let the journey (and shopping) begin!
Studio Barattolo was born in the heart of Roma, in the historic Eternal City. The young brand founded by the talented Giorgia Di Simone finds inspiration in the travels, experiences and memories of the designer herself. Traditional jewelery techniques meet the contemporary taste of a fresh brand that seeks and discovers a new elegance in jewelery. Craftsmanship and experimentation live in the heart of the Studio Barattolo laboratory, a true Atelier in the center of Roma in via Aterno 6.
Arrival station? Pescara. Stefania Tortella, founder & designer of the STKREO brand, lives in Abruzzo. Her sartorial jewels are born from a sustainable process that finds its raw material in recycled leather then hand-painted by Stefania herself. Something unique and exclusive, absolutely made in Italy! The jewel comes through upcycling reinvented, in form and substance: a brand to know and keep in your jewelry box!
New stage, new destination: Napoli. The city of pizza, tarantella, heat, Vesuvio, strong and living traditions could not miss in our itinerary. It is precisely among the beauties of the historic center of this famous city, in Via della Cisterna dell'Olio 14, which is Chiara Perrot and her brand new store. Here you can find and touch the real Italian tailoring, appreciate the design and style of a brand that collection after collection is writing its history. From minimal volumes to research and application of great details, up to hand-painted fabrics Chiara Perrot is a destination to be included in the journey to discover Italy and new brands!
And rolling even further south... Here we are in Puglia! And here we are from Morena Scrascia and her Fuscra brand. Her bags are really special starting from the material they are made of... wood! Perfumes, stories, colors, veins ... each piece is unique, exclusive and so alive. Nature, wood and its land come to life in Fuscra creations. Eco sustainable, in harmony with the environment and with a minimalist design, these bags are forged and hand-carved. Each Fuscra is a precious and rare casket, just like the brand.
Next and last stop ... Sicily! An evergreen wind blows on this island and on this brand that has always had eco-sustainability at heart. The art, Catania, culture and traditions of a land alive and strong with beauty have brought the designer Ambra Castello home after a period spent in England. The talented designer creates limited edition garments and accessories, all handmade with recyclable or natural materials: through a very long and meticulous process, Ambra creates her products by weaving a single hand thread. A technique, an art, a plot of a new Italian story!
