Giorgio BratoBy Editor in Fashion on October 15th, 2009 | 2 Comments »
In these uncertain times, people are certainly buying less and, when they do buy, they’re buying quality not quantity as was the case in years gone by. If you’re in the market for leather goods (shoes, jackets, and bags) you need to check out Italian line Giorgi Brato.
Giorgio Braschi, the Italian designer was born in Bologna in 1967; his family has always been in involved in the production of leather garments. Initially, his business consisted of producing technical performance motorbike jackets in leather; later this evolved into production for prÃªt Ã porter collections and gave rise to his consuming and ongoing passion for fashion.
In 2001 he had the winning idea of fusing the luxury of leather with fashion style to create a collection of high quality dyed leather garments. Research and the techniques of craftsmanship workings enabled
him to create special items of clothing and accessories in softest nappa leather.
The craftsmanship aspect of the designerâ€™s production endows the collection with a refined look and a lived-in feel. Each garment is unique and is distinguished by its original lines and shapes, which when combined with special washing techniques create jackets, bags and shoes each with an individual look. Each Giorgio Brato item in leather is special and once worn continues to adapt to the body becoming a second skin.
The production process for his garments remains linked to the tradition of craftsmanship preserving the quality and style which single out the true Made In Italy.
