Inspired by her love of animals, especially cats, happy memories, and stories from her childhood, Vivetta channels the charm of vintage toys, antiques, and tapestries into poetic collections with a surrealist twist. Her creations are moving ideas that reference designers from a range of artistic disciplines: from Italian legend Gio Ponti and Fornasetti, to the art Deco works of Erté, illustrations by Luigi Serani, Slim’s photographs and Pablo Picasso masterpieces. Vivetta’s dreamlike designs move to the sounds of Marianne Faithful and Conan Mockasin, Catherine Deneuve and the Nouvelle Vague. Experimental animation movies from the 1960’s and 70’s and references to creative minds of Norman McLaren, René Joidin, Co Hoedeman, Caroline Leaf, Yuri Norstein, Hermina Tyrlova, Jan Svankmaier,and Jiri Trnka are all sprinkled throughout Vivetta’s work. From romanticism to irony, Vivetta’s multi-faceted universe weaves together a range of themes, presenting Made in Italy craftsmanship through unflinchingly modern codes. Nostalgic references are fused with contemporary shapes and preppy silhouettes to create collections that are fresh and full of whimsy. From cuffs to collars, hand and face details are embroidered throughout, forming an integral part of the brand’s design DNA. Other key details include shoes, bags, jewellery, hats, and pin brooch.
