As we begin an exciting new year, I always like to look back at the year that’s just been and share with you some of my proudest moments of 2021.
Following a successful launch in 2020, we continued full steam ahead by introducing a new range of signature colours inspired by one of my favourite places, the Cinque Terre along Italy’s northwest coastline and introduced the gorgeous onyx black and soft pink colour combination for our Livia vanity cases and Luigia clutches, too. The latter has proved to be a firm favourite among our lovely clients.
Having a great love of high-quality cashmere, I took the plunge to fulfil a lifelong dream of mine and introduced a fabulous capsule collection of ready-to-wear cashmere which are super versatile to wear throughout the year and the feedback has been very encouraging.
Being a citizen of the world, I am continuing to expand our growing global presence having signed a partnership with Vulcanize London @ The Playhouse concept store in Tokyo and teamed up with digital luxury store The Arabian Boutiques in Abu Dhabi which now offers our entire range to clients throughout the Gulf states via their online platform in 2021.
Finally, I simply must praise our three brilliantly creative students from Italian art academy Nuova Accademia Di Belle Arti (NABA) who were a pleasure to work with last year and produced some stunning work that we were delighted to showcase through our digital marketing channels. Marine, Shikkha and Lisa, we were lucky to have you on board, however short and sweet it was.
Looking ahead, I’m really excited to see what the coming year brings. We’re starting the year off by exhibiting at contemporary fashion show Scoop X Pure in London next month, which will be a great opportunity to showcase Atelier Verdi’s growing universe. Come and see us!
