OTTO Milano: baroque inspirations clash with a clean contemporary vision of the bag, where the perfect joint is rediscovered in a completely handmade concept, linear in shape but sinuous in the notch. The origins of Lecce and artistic splendor that characterizes those places are the initial note, the starting point of the young designer Cecilia Vasilotta that has combined in a single product the history of the past with the latest contemporary requirements.

Born in Milan in 1989, Cecilia attended the course in Fashion Design at NABA, but leaves the second year after an internship and a definitive inclusion in the Department of Marketing and Communication of the Gucci fashion house. But her real passion drives her somewhere else, returning to study as a Fashion Designer at IED and simultaneously to take part in competitions, events, then doing an internship at the Bottega di Paralume of Lecce in which learns the traditional workings tricks and knowledge. Otto Milano is the next step, reflection and realization of her ideas.

Otto Milano is the next step, reflection and realization of her ideas. Palindromic number, graphically symmetrical but redundant in its roundness, Otto is not only in name but also a brand identity able to find imperfections in its added value. The handmade is the beating heart of minimal bags, valuable as never equal to themselves. Unique emotions handmade. The bags Otto Milan are the result a meticulous process of careful selection of leathers, strong not only in quality but also in their colors, matched each piece in interesting color games. Otto Milano: the aestheticism of the substance.
