For as long as Claudia Franco can remember the infinity of colour, and its endless shades and tones have fascinated her. With the hand painted silk scarves and wraps signed Claudia F she works her alchemy colouring them in hues that even Seurat would have difficulty replicating.
The scarf “Geometric” puts into practice her own colour theory grouping tints in a striking pattern that speaks with a modern edge. An execution of strict form called for by geometry’s order of things, but with a large dollop of whimsical brushstrokes the scarf is a delightful choreography of shape and colour that invites and encourages draping, wrapping and tying.
With no expiry date, this gorgeous silk scarf for women Made in Italy exclusively for theitaliancollection.com is a jewel that will channel your beauty in ways you never imagined.
About the Designer
“I am the daughter of immigrants from Lecce, simple people, tireless workers blessed with the gift of love and living with love.” This is how Claudia Franco, designer and creative director of her namesake brand Claudia F introduces herself.
She has a reserved pride veiled by a certain melancholy and mystery. Her beauty is subtle, her behaviour is poised, even noble, and her mane of dark hair coupled with exalting dark eyes reveals her southern Italian origins.
Claudia’s story, however, does not begin in Italy, but in the Black Forest where she draws her first breath. At six months of age her parents leave Germany to reunite with the family in Apulia. As a child Claudia spends much time with her beloved aunt, a seamstress who teaches her how to sew, embroider and crochet on textiles that soon become her passion.
