Brands create fashion powerhouse as duo show collections side by side.
Vicneza-based jeweller Calgaro, which recently merged with its Arrezo’s Rosato, is exhibiting at BaselWorld for the first time under its new corporate structure.
The newly-forged Italian brand is showing three new lines from Calgaro: Asia, Venere and Aphrodite.
The Calgaro Asia collection is inspired by images of a faraway magic land of shining stars by night and bright colours by day. The image is captured in stories carved on the surface of coloured silver alloy jewellery including necklaces, bracelets and ear rings.
The Venere collection is made up of bright bangles, earrings and rings in silver, handmade enamelled in sparkling colours depicting stars, moons and planets.
Aphrodite silver bangles come in warm shades of rose, green, brown. They use unusual combinations of colours and materials such as leather teamed with rose silver metal to create up-to-date jewels ready-to-wear for a young and modern goddess.
The merger of Rosato and Calgaro formalises a friendship between the companies’ two owners: Simona Rosato and Monica Fin. Both designers have long held the belief that jewellery should be approachable, affordable and treated as a fashion item that accessorises a wearer’s personal style.
The two companies will retain both their premises. The head office will be in Milan, but desgign and manufacturing will remain in Vicenza for Calgaro and Arezzo for Rosato.
