Cuoio di Toscana joined Dolce&Gabbana for the special event “renaissance and rebirth”
Cuoio di Toscana partnered with Dolce&Gabbana as part of the events organized in collaboration with Pitti Immagine and the City of Florence.
The consortium Cuoio di Toscana, the absolute leader in the production of sole leather, with a 98% share of the Italian market and over 80% at the European level, longstanding partner of the principal international brands, and ambassador of Italian excellence, has been invited to create some exclusive pieces – a coat and two accessories – that Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have included in the extraordinary Alta Sartoria men’s collection, as well as for the cover of a book, published in limited edition, dedicated to the artisans of Florence.
“The Florentine Renaissance has always represented for us the realm of the extraordinary, of pure creativity, of manual skill of the highest order, just as love for art, handmade products and Italy have always been the cornerstones of our work. Involving the artisans was a natural choice, inspired by their knowledge, skill, and devotion”, commented Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana.
“The three-day Dolce&Gabbana event, in collaboration with Pitti Immagine and the City of Florence, has an international scope”, explains Antonio Quirici, president of the Consorzio Cuoio di Toscana, “and promoted the image of the city and its industries in a noble and important way. As such, it is in line with the objectives of the Consortium, which promotes the value of this iconic and sustainable raw material, appreciated and recognised on all markets. This event was a source of pride for us because it celebrated the mastery, prestige, and shared values of Made in Italy and Made in Tuscany”.
