If there is something that has given me the blog is to connect with people who put soul into what they do. Deposited in their products illusion, creativity, development and punctilious care in every piece.
Today I invite you to meet a luxury brand of accessories in where the essence is the handmade. Calabrese: characterized by being modern and classy. So defined by Marcelo Calabrese, Creative Director, who has sought inspiration in the different cities where he lived. New York, Barcelona and Buenos Aires. After passing through the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and extensive experience in the fashion world, Marcelo Calabrese, presents his unique brand.
How and when did the idea of creating a brand of jewelry and accessories born?
The idea of creating Calabrese arises from the union of two generators factors. On the one hand, our retrospective view from many years associated with the fashion in different cultures; and secondly, the need to move away from seasonal product to develop timeless pieces that integrate the elegant classicism of Art Deco with colorful Caribbean.
What are your sources of inspiration for the creation of products?
The products or parts that we created have an intimate relationship with the artistic. We understand that an object tasteful is always inviting. For that reason we work in pursuit of different materials, unique and limited. We prefer to develop an object to have to buy it done.
The idea is to create objects of desire, that are versatile in their use and to convey character and provocation.
What kind of jewelry and accessories can be found? What are the main characteristics of products?
We do not move into rigid or structured lines but if we care to detail the concept of the brand. All our products can relate to each other depending on personal taste and occasion for requiring them.
Manually produce each of our pieces. All are unique and different. We constantly expand into new materials and techniques.
In Calabrese you will find a variety of accessories. Bulky rings, handbags raffia, pearl necklaces, silk shirts or clutches for night, are some of the current proposals.
Who is it for?
Definitely the target market is women and men with their own criteria when choosing. We propose products that are causing the desire to use them again and again without implying that look outmoded.
What materials they work and where production takes place?
In the choice of materials the creative process begins. The origin of these is varied and changing. We use exotic skins and also components chosen in antique shops. We also use natural fibers woven or hand-painted products.
Our productions are not bulky and that allows us manufacture in which we believe are the best hands in the care of the details of our parts.
