Lots of useful suggestions about new brand designers for a cool shopping experience. From Where Milan’s reporter Carolina Scuri
LUCIO VANOTTI – Designer Lucio Vanotti creates low-key, elegant garments exuding stylistic purism: devoid of specific lines and shapes, his garments are reduced to their most basic form. Cuts, signs, surfaces, geometries and fabrics constitute the real identity of the brand.
c/o FRIP Corso di Porta Ticinese, 16 – T: +39 02 8321360
CONSERVATOIRE INTERNATIONAL DE LUNETTES – This cult leader in the industry designs eyewear for true aficionados. There is no doubt that it has put styles of the 1930s and 1980s, “Made-in-Italy” craftsmanship and artisanal quality back on the fashion map.
c/o ANTONIOLI Via P. Paoli, 1 – T: +39 02 36561860
NAVIIV – Featuring beautifully crafted shapes, narrow cuts and rounded brims, the Naviiv’s headgear is the epitome of style and comfort. The brand offers seven models in 300 different versions, using 3 print methods – screen, digital and 4-color process – and materials like nylon, neoprene, leather and python skin.
c/o ANTONIA Via Cusani, 5 – T: +39 02 86998340
SUPER DUPER – Three youngsters, Ilaria, Veronica and Matteo, came into possession of a wooden last used to make hats and they decided to establish the Super Duper brand. Their hats are the result of in-depth study involving the transformation of high-quality raw materials into an entirely handcrafted end product.
