The collection is very special for me as it’s reminiscent of the beauty and the charm of my travels through Italy. With Giulietta, I’ve presented by views on the perfect woman of today, someone who is proud, beautiful, self assured and enigmatic. I hope the collection resonates with the stylish and chic women of today and helps them make an extraordinary style statement. ”
