About

A fine and exquisite example of the designers work. The bag is signed and numbered 0089. Known for his elegant refinement the designer was born in 1939 and passed in 2014. Working in Rome and fully understanding the Mediterranean love of pure refinement his designs express a sublime play of luxury with simplicity. These small clutches are in demand the world over. Examples of his work can be found carried by the best-dressed women from the highest levels of society and in institutional collects such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London as well as a long list of other international museums and institutions too numerous to mention. Crafted completely by hand in Italy these are like fine small sculptures with no two being alike. The gems and stones used are examples of the lapidary art, as are the settings of 18-carat gold fully hallmarked by the jewelers. The wood is Macassar ebony rare and costly and the tassels are woven from silk. The designer has been creating lighting, furniture and fashion accessories that are considered objets de vertu since the 1970s.
