Innovative prints and an extensive colour palette have become Cocoa’s signature style, securing the brand a place within the realm of international fashion, quickly becoming a favourite amongst editors and well-known personalities.
Goat, the label synonymous with understated luxury began as the go-to cashmere range for the fashion cognoscenti over ten years ago. Now entering its second decade the brand has developed into a full ready to wear collection including those signature knits but now also encompassing it's equally recognizable separates, dresses and outerwear.
The pared down aesthetic has found a devoted fashion following amongst the best retailers, discerning clients and a quiet celebrity clientele who all appreciate its finely tuned details and unwavering belief that less is more. The worlds of Stilettos and comfort are not mutually exclusive, however, Sargossa is blurring the lines between gorgeous, sexy heels and the comfort that women demand. Designed for the professional woman in mind, the stiletto revolution is bringing functionality and comfort to the feet of style conscious women. Craftsmanship and luxurious quality are at the very core of the brand and each shoe is perfectly put together with a demanding lifestyle in mind. Designed to comfortably take you through your day in style, a specially designed construction and an insole, which is built on a broad range of foams, lines each pair to provide ease and support whatever your schedule demands. Keeping your cool and remaining elegant whilst running from meeting to meeting has never felt better.
Research, design, craftsmanship and plenty of dedication and enthusiasm are the hallmark of the TRANSIT designer clothing collections. The Company exports its TRANSIT collections to 35 countries throughout the world, distributing its products in some of the most esteemed, multi-brand and select stores in the fashion world. Cool, timeless, luxe separates in mainly dusky and neutral, smoky colours, are at the foundation of the Transit Uomo and Transit Par Such ranges. A TRANSIT piece of clothing aims to be a garment made with love not just a “label.”
Making an entrée to Scoop’s fashion panoply are Italian ambassadors; Kyme sunglasses, Agnelle gloves, Angelo di Spirito Rosa jewellery, British footwear label J Shoes and Malaysian fashion designer Bernard Chandran. Kyme is a brand that design and produce sunglasses of the highest quality. The name of the brand, Kyme, comes from Latin Kuma, meaning WAVE, which is also the company’s inspiration; the wave being a metaphor for energy and continuous movement. The collection is made in the Italian provinces of Auronzo di Cadore and Ariano Irpino.
Employing refined craftsmanship, detail and Mazucchelli sheets, Kyme’s strong identity is manifested in its eyewear’s various colours, glossy or matt, eighteen lens tints, mirrors (existing), flash (new) and bicolor (new); the variations of the current model Kyme are endless. Special and limited editions as well as unique pieces are added throughout the year. Kyme is currently represented in some of the best multi-brand fashion stores.
For over four generations, the Agnelle family, located in Venice, has been the secret accomplice of many grand couturiers and designers, in producing beautifully crafted gloves. Building on the long family success story of linking tradition to creativity, this heritage brand produces its luxurious gloves in its very own factory, well known for its attention to finesse and quality materials.
When one purchases Angelo di Spirito Rosa jewellery in its original packaging, one purchases real natural gemstones, precious metals and meticulous hand-craftsmanship. Founded in 2011, Angelo di Spirito Rosa designs are simple, elegant and befitting for all occasions. Their unique play between precious stones and materials such as gold, silver but also thread, can be spotted on a beach in Mykonos just as well as in a trendy restaurant in the Centro Storico of Milano. Packaged in their unique trademark bottles and keeping prices at high accessory levels, Angelo di Spirito Rosa has managed to perfectly blend into fashion boutiques and become the up-sale preference of many customers.
Known as the “Original Jewellery Bottling Company”, Angelo di Spirito Rosa, has developed a unique conceptual packaging that expresses the brands individuality and message. While this packaging helps make the brands jewellery a perfect gift, it has more importantly served as badge separating real Angelo di Spirito Rosa jewellery from copies. On May 2014, Angelo di Spirito Rosa, was awarded the Clio Image Award-Honoring Creative Excellence Worldwide for “Jewellery Packaging (Bottles & Test Tubes).”
From its humble beginnings in Leicestershire, J Shoes has gone on to develop a strong brand following from its customers around the world, achieved by a combination of design innovation, individuality and high quality materials, offering the perfect blend of crafted artisan appeal, with comfort and style. J Shoes love to use natural leathers that are full of character enabling them to stand out from the rest of the mass-produced herd. Their leathers include blemishes, interesting variations, and great warmth and depth through aniline finishes, waxes and oils. All this is often topped off with a little burnishing and mopping by hand, which only get better with age and wear.
