In the heart of Brera, well-known Florentine designer Angela Caputi Giuggiù presents her new exclusive collection
Angela Caputi Giuggiù's innovative, elegant jewels are the perfect addition to the wish list of every woman. Featuring a blend of art and fashion, her creations are characterized by a continuously evolving creative process. In anticipation of spring, the designer's new collection ‘Mimetica' draws inspiration from the colours of nature. At this time of year, flora and fauna gradually resurge to take on a new life before exploding in a blaze of shapes, colours and scents. The bijoux featured in the collection have been created using a blend of colours non-colours (green, yellow and brown) which recall the shades of the earth, bringing life to each and every outfit and enhancing your best features. The artist re-interprets camouflage graphics in a modern-day key, transforming her bijoux into real collector's items. Geometric lines are combined with whimsical good luck toad motifs and colours assume unusual hues such as acid yellow and warm orange. Also known by the nickname Giuggiù, the Florentine designer has become a byword across the globe. Her stunning creations have been showcased at several of the most important museums worldwide including the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Museo degli Argenti and the Museo del Costume in Florence. For more than forty years, countless sources of inspirations have stimulated and continue to stimulate the designer including, first and foremost, her love of 20th century American movies. The creative heart of Angela Caputi's bijoux is her workshop in Oltrarno, located in the picturesque district populated by Florentine artisans. Each piece is assembled by hand in full respect of tradition and the true concept of Made-in-Italy craftsmanship. The combination of typical working techniques and the use of modern materials, including synthetic resins, makes these objects authentic expressions of contemporary art.
