UNICI Scarf Collection by Alessandro Cattaneo


Alessandro Cattaneo of UNICI is the creator of an exquisite collection of scarves. An artist at heart, each scarf is a work of art, a vehicle of artistic endeavor.

Whimsical patterns framed in splendid colors, and edged by hand, each scarf is more than a fashion accessory! It is more a sort of wearable art; particularly in the way they interact with the person depending on how they are worn.

"La borsa bella e ben fatta" -- a beautiful and well-made bag -- is an accessory par excellence whose imprint of elegance is desirable no matter the occasion. Be it a shoulder bag, a hand-held, a shopper or a clutch, what is paramount is that the design, quality and details all fuse to live in perfect harmony.

This perfection, that Italians know all too well, is what compelled us to include the refined creations by Valentina Nuzzi; owner and creative director of the brand FedoraMi within The Italian Collection.
