VIOLANTE is an Italian womenswear brand launched by Violante Nessi. Following her passion for fashion design with studies at Istituto Marangoni and Central Saint Martins, Violante began her design career at Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford. After formative experiences in New York, Milan and London, Violante created her eponymous brand.
VIOLANTE introduces new pieces through out the year, with signature designs, prints and knits, often inspired from the designer’s own paintings. Every piece is proudly Made in Italy, working with the most experienced local artisans and Italy’s finest suppliers. VIOLANTE takes cues from the designer’s Italian and South American heritage, balancing contemporary design, fine craftsmanship and Latin sensuality. The result is a womenswear brand made for modern bon vivants brought to you with amore.
FATTO IN ITALIA
VIOLANTE’s vision is to elevate wardrobe essentials with handcrafted excellence and the finest materials. Full of artisanal detail, each piece embodies exquisite design, craftsmanship and a unique story.
VIOLANTE modernizes tradition, reinterpreting an artisanal and beautiful concept into something contemporary and elegant. The commitment and passion of the artisanship is reflected in the calibre of each piece, all exquisitely handcrafted in Italy.
The craftsmanship behind each piece is just as important as the final product. From the warm focaccia of Luisa in Novi Ligure, to Alessia’s grandmother’s apple pie in San Lazzaro di Savena, VIOLANTE is the story of familial artisanship and modern design.
Artistry is the creative flourish that elevates what might otherwise be ordinary into something interesting and authentic.
Buttons inspired by antique jewellery, prints and details from Violante’s own art and the finest materials combine to form unique pieces with deep meaning and utmost quality.
