Every piece is made with love and it’s the symbol of sustainable style.

Jewelry design is not just creating accessories. There’s much more behind and Primordiale brand is a good example. The variety of stylistic influences of the Italian label ranges from art, fashion, design and architecture.
Primordiale is a contemporary jewelry brand founded in Milan in 2012 by the fashion stylist Eleonora Tonini. As a combination of primitive shapes and modern design, Primordiale is defined by the creator as unisex, dressing both men and women without gender distinctions. The jewel is conceived as the absolute protagonist, as a tribal ornament showing the power and style of the person who wears it.
Focusing on the materials study and experimentation, Primordiale can match raw and natural matters like wood with high-tech elements like plexiglass, pvc and artificial resins.
The quote “less is more” is the starting point for the spring summer 2016 collection, a capsule called Essenza created using pvc and transparent plexiglass phials set in aluminum supports. The aim is to express the deep essence of the avant-garde brand using just a few elements.

Design del gioiello non significa solo creare accessori. E’ molto di più. Il brand Primordiale lo dimostra.
Wax fabric is the traditional African wax printed textile. Brothers are Nicolò Talignani and Valerio Ruberto, the founders. The key-word? Mingling. That’s Waxman Brothers.
Founded in 2013 in a bustling multicultural neighborhood in Paris as heart of the African commercial activity, Waxman Brothers brand is born from a brilliant idea; creating unique shirts for men and women mixing the typical afro pattern and the Made in Italy tailoring manufacture.
In an historical shirt maker atelier in the north of Italy that dates back to the 40s the starting point is Wax, the 100% cotton textile hand-printed combining wax and color. Every shirt tells a story that begins in Africa, passes by France and arrives in Italy. Swimwear, backpacks, bags, t-shirts and sweatshirts complete what the designers call World Apparel; the style for a new generation marked by the mingling of different cultures.
Waxman Brothers most important concept is the mingle between cultures’ elements and artistic inspirations. The brand brings together the world of fashion with other creative expressions such as design and music. Linked to the Wax Connection are the brand Kuishi (literally “to live” in Swahili), born in 2015 in collaboration with Nicola Manfredi and the various music network that Waxman Brothers supports. The brand collaborates with international artists and performers like Jovanotti, Malika Ayane and Joan Thiele spreading the World Music; the result of the combination of Jazz, Soul, R&B, afro music and hip hop. This year Waxman Brothers will be partner of the music festival MI AMI in Milan the 27th and 28th of May.

Wax è il tradizionale tessuto africano stampato a cera. Brothers sono Nicolò Talignani e Valerio Ruberto, i fondatori. Parola chiave? Contaminazione. Il gioco è fatto. Questo è Waxman Brothers.
Fondato nel 2013 a Parigi in un vivace quartiere multiculturale, centro del commercio africano, il brand Waxman Brothers nasce da un’intuizione geniale; mixare i pattern tipici della cultura afro alla sartoria Made in Italy per camicie uniche (e non solo).
Narguess Hatami is the creative soul of the brand Miahatami, label founded in 2015 in San Marino. The name, a clear reference to the designer’s surname, reflects her family artistical Persian roots and the Middle East culture.
Influenced by art and its thousand sides and in particular inspired by painting, drawing and music, Narguess creates an intercultural, eclectic and sophisticated style. Colors, patterns and traditions are the main values for Miahatami, brand that the creator considers “a meeting point between Middle East and European design”.
For the spring-summer 2016 collection a very contemporary femininity starts from tapestries and frescoes typical of the Persian Empire. The charm of iconography travels from kilim carpets to the image of the sovereign FathAli taken as a decoration for t-shirts and shirts thanks to the illustrator Federico Monzani. The study of shapes is a light abundance of volumes and rational imbalances. Repeated overlapping give movement to the silhouette and, in many cases, the veiled transparent outer layer reveals the internal one, featuring both the same patterns which create three-dimensional impressions. Kaleioscopic pictures, embroideries and colors quote the atmosphere of Persia, the legendary “silk road”. Royal blue, canary yellow, flame red and sunny orange play with each other in prints, stripes and inserts while nobles materials coexist with techno-textures: nylon organza and silk organza, poplin, georgette and duchess, raffia and cotton.

Born in Arezzo (Tuscany) in 2009, Tvscia brand derives its strength from its origins and finds in far away cultures its inspirations. Elisa Soldini and Lucia Padrini, as the creative duo, mix rock and punk in a sensual and sophisticated manner for a modern total look still sober in its appearance.
The attention is dedicated to the fabrics’ choice, certainly interpreted as the instrument to represent on clothing all the natural and artificial material contaminations. Rocks, wood, ground, air but also metal, cement and glass.
The 2016 spring-summer collection is called Evolution and it’s the symbol of a perfect bond between humanity and nature, in detail between the mutations and revolutions causing social and personal evolutions. The strength of nature is displayed by the iridescent technical silk and the crêpe patterns recalling rudimentary surfaces and oxidized metals.
Tvscia’s woman loves being noticed for her elegance and femininity without the need of shouting out loud.

- Choose the top: shirt, t-shirt, top, jacket and outercoat.
- Choose the second piece: skirt or trousers.
- Mix & Match.
