Milan, New York, Moscow. It is here, in the capitals of luxury, that Fabrizio Cantamessa intends to open his first single-brand stores and introduce his zero number accessory collection.
New York in January, on none other than 5th Avenue. The flagship store will open its doors in spring, in the very heart of Milan. Today it is the turn of Moscow, where the iconic Radisson Royal has been chosen for the very first sign featuring the signature Cantamessa crown.
The hotel, with its sharp contrasts inspired by neoclassical architecture and design interiors, epitomizes an ancient and international city which goes back a long way, yet it is ever changing and it is not afraid of breaking the mould. It is the ideal setting for a jewellery house capable of creating a larger-than-life sculptural spirit whatever the time period.
Cantamessa’s creations do not descend from traditional models and are not led astray by the fleeting fads of modern day life. They are suspended in time and forever becoming because they stem from an archetypal idea of luxury which is free and pure, because its draws inspiration from none other than nature itself.
It is that very same nature that guides the painstaking selection of the rare gems suggesting neverbefore-seen techniques and unusual combinations. It is the constantly evolving imagination with which flora and fauna shape and mould themselves that inspires the live structures which embody the sensuality of movement in every piece of work.
The limited series of accessories accompanying the jewellery in the stores embraces this absolute
vision and provides Cantamessa with that creative flair which is required in order to break new ground in the luxury sector.
The most refined silks and the finest cashmere yarns become sensitive fabrics according to the lines
and whims of those who wear them. They grasp the concept of lightness and dress it up. The tanning and manual processing of the crocodile skin make it possible to overcome the rough edges of the current manufactures to achieve the smooth touch of the skins and break into powerful and defining colours.
Once again, Cantamessa reinterpretes nature’s most seductive suggestions to transform luxury into an ever-changing and all-encompassing sensory experience.
Luxury is in the stones carved by time, in the sheer fabrics, in the silkworm threads, in the Italian
passion for craftsmanship which knows what each and every one of its stepping stones is worth. For
Cantamessa, luxury is to be found in nature. It is lightness, physics of movement, transformation.
