The .GIULIAMARANI collection arises from the synergy between fashion-industrial design and art, completely made in Italy.
Art, with its aesthetic freedom, influences the final look of the items, which find in the industrial process the contemporary and modern solution.
It’s all about mixing different techniques together, stratifying a process on another process with an experimental approach.
The final result is unexpected and aims for recreating in a reproducible product the uniqueness of an art piece.
"I decided to cooperate with Fulvia because I like her way of creating, the irony she uses in her work. I was curious about her experimentation with collages, she’s very graphic but “ imprecise”, always showing the beauty of non symmetrical, of hand made. The spontaneity of a carved out card which hides the deepness and irony of an analytical eye capable of grasping the details and summirizing them. Her colours are masterly mixed together and thanks to her pairing, they become “ lively”. Shades which alone could be considered as neutral get alive and become real colours in a contrast game with other shades."
"What I like about Ester and why I chose to cooperate with her. Her colours and her choice of “ exciting “ shades with refined combinations. Her flat hatches, the abstract forms always featuring a real origin. Her filter-like eye reaches an outcome completely different from the starting point, but still faithful to it. Her being pop, meaning enjoyable for the eye. She’s able to hide very well the intellectual side which appears only after a close contemplation. Her paintings are impressive and immediate, light as a pretense, intellectual for real.Her curiosity, her will to get in touch with other worlds.Thinking that everything, even the ugliest and most insignificant thing, can be interesting, her desire to discover."

“ For the next Autumn Winter collection I'm working with Nicola Felice Torcoli. The art of Torcoli is built around three concepts: the theory of the philosopher Popper that "All of the watches are clouds", the simultaneity and the defragmentation. His work is really inspiring: he paints different pattern with oil on canvas, then cut each canvas in stripes that he finally combines to create new, totally different resulte. His "method" is similar to mine : he starts from his stripes and uses them as I use yarns for my Knitwear, weaving them together! Torcoli is omnivore of images and experiences, prone to experimentation of new techniques, perfect for my collection ! ”
Nicola Felice Torcoli was born in Brescia in 1980. Lives and works in Milan. Graduate in painting at Accademia delle Belle arti di Brera in 2006 with a thesis entitled «Randomental, evolving process».
“Click is a snap-shot of coloured geometrical compositions which result in abstract art, even if they are reality fragments. Both me and Andrea share the same interest for attention to details, which, apparently meaningless, become, examined from a certain framing and with shrewd eyes, sparkling lines and colours that create a micro universe with an harmonious, terse and attractive atmosphere. Another passion joining me and Andrea Tonellotto is the research for the materials / instruments necessary to our creative activity: he chose a Polaroid as his channel and I chose Knitwear! ”
Andrea Tonellotto was born in 1974 in Campo San Martino, he lives in Piazzola sul Brenta in the province of Padua. Self-made artist, he started his artistical career by using a Leica, then a Hasselblad and a Rollei, and eventually came to using the Polaroid. His works have been published on several international magazines, such as Square mag; Temnokomornik; Tripmag ; Pulp revue; European photography; ERRR. You can see his creations both on the official Polaroid site and on the Impossible Project site. Main exhibitions: Festival del Cinema, Rome 2011; Leica gallery prague, Prague 2012; MIA fair, Milan 2012; Le percolateur, Marseille 2013; Stroke art fair 2014 (Pablo & Paul gallery), Munich 2014.
“Giulio Zanet is the artist I worked with for my Fall Winter 2014/15 collection, because I think that his poetics and his continuous research towards abstraction are interesting. I like his vividness, his curiosity and his experimentation which drives him to let his work chat with other disciplines.
His “dirty” brush giving a sense of immediacy to the art work and the refined use of the colour with passionate and vibrant matching have immediately made me think about a sound cooperation with him during all steps of the manufacturing.”
Giulio Zanet (1984, Colleretto Castelnuovo, Italy) realizes paintings and art installations. His poetics is a research on images and world depiction as well as an expression of ideas which are realized in an abstract way.
His works don’t refer to recognizable shapes and the results are deconstructions of the real, whose significance is open to polyhedric interpretations.
Form and colour coats cross and create new landscapes, tell pieces of stories without any subject and with infinitive verbs and suggest curious metaphors. The artist and the viewer can easily imagine their own reality, hanging and open.
