“Fake is the solution” is YOSONO’s new motto for its…
With its aim to become a well-loved everyday lifestyle brand, independent Made in Italy Stabole produces bags and purses by treating each piece as a work of art. Its strengths are its substance and the uncompromising design aesthetics, mixed with the tradition of Italian craftsmanship and the precious materials of Tuscan tanneries. The combination of these techniques gives life to timeless, luxurious, detailed, innovative bags created with unusual materials.
Lorenzo Pezzi, the creative director says: “our goal is to make the vision of “contemporary tradition” a reality, transforming it into something that everyone can appreciate in daily life”.
For the new collection Stabole announced a collaboration with Gaia Di Paola, a Roman artist who travelled all over the world before settling down in London.
Gaia’s work hinges on the constant search for new inspirations: unique fabrics, old linens, precious brocades and hand-woven wools add variety to her creations, alongside the use of techniques such as painting, stitching, collages and applique, all rigorously handmade. This collaboration has resulted in three new Stabole bags presenting different artworks to choose from, or to be customized on request. The materials are all natural and combined with soft vegetable-tanned leathers, prepared in the traditional way but with a contemporary final touch. The method gives the leather a darker but natural colour without using dyes.
