There are those who believe that rubbing a ruby across the skin helps restore youth and vitality! It is not happenstance that Claudia F drawn to the spiritual side of things has named her gorgeous silk and cashmere scarf “rubino” or ruby.
Beautifully orchestrated in a sublime colour palette and abstract design, “Rubino” is a unique expression, a marvellous blend of form and function, and a delight to wear. Her abundant dimensions encourage draping or wrapping, commanding the room as she does, adding a touch of splendour to an outfit.
Indeed, Claudia F’s double-faced scarf pays homage to a timeless classic, and exemplifies the real Made in Italy. As such our unique scarf is a fitting candidate for Limited-Edition.
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.
