I would like people wearing my clothes to feel comfortable and confident. My style is a combination of eco-sustainability, craftsmanship and comfort. I propose a line of hand-made clothing with essential lines, which adapts to the figure and needs of the wearer, with a timeless style. I prefer stock footage from Italian and foreign companies, for a choice that looks to the environment.
So each dress has its own story.
Levrieri e Gomitoli is a small handcrafted wool and cotton knitwear brand that I founded in 2009 after adopting my first greyhound rescued from mistreatment. Initially I was involved in making coats only for this type of dog, but over the years I have decided to "dress" all breeds. Later, I felt compelled to design sweaters for both dogs and owners. That's why I weave wool, cuddles and tails. My sweaters are all inspired by the lands of the North, and with them I express my love for Sweden and for the Nordic atmospheres.
I select shirts, but not only, used, sample or vintage; I transform them to make them more contemporary and embroidery by hand.
The subjects of embroidery often come from the past, especially medieval and Renaissance. Medieval bestiaries, ancient botany, books on heraldry and Renaissance allegories and the inevitable travel companion, Dante’s Commedia.
I will be at Abilmente on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 February
