The Round-Up is Boticca’s weekly summary of new designers, new pieces we love as well as happenings on our website and around our community.
Simona Cassai and Marta Saletti of LedaOtto (Arezzo, Italy): This Italian designing duo proves that inspirations can come from anywhere! Their jewelry designs are based on the blueprints of famous historical buildings and monuments such as Saint Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow or the Castel del Monte in Italy.
Square Lust (Moscow, Russia): Square Lust is a brand of fabulous silk scarves designed by artists Artaksiniya and Fear Konstruktor (who prefer to go by their artistic names). The scarves are characterized by unique, enchanting patterns and to make things better, the pieces are all one-of-a-kind and never reproduced.
Bastian Oppermann of AndTie (Copenhagen, Denmark): “Established on a Friday” by Bastian and a group of friends, AndTie is an innovative brand and concept that has created a unique combination of a scarf and a tie, called the AndTie (of course!).
Morgan Mallett of DESIGN + CONQUER (Calgary, Canada): Drawing inspirations from 1980s sci-fi movies to pretty much everything she finds riveting, Morgan designs are eclectic, organic and idiosyncratically charming. Furthermore, all the pieces in her collection are handmade from custom-fabricated plastic polymers.
