The Exquisite J collection was born in 1993 due to the fortunate meeting of Giancarlo Ferrari a graduate artist at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and Francesco Bonamano graduate architect at the Politecnico in Milano. During the past years Giancarlo and Francesco have cultivated several stylish experiences for whatever concern the “world” of clothing and accessories working for many international brands and prestigious theatre productions. In 1996 they have been mentioned for the first time in the “Dizionario della Moda” (Dictionary of Fashion) by Guido Vergani. In 1998 was born the first “real” Exquisite J collection which meets great success among the most important international buyers such as Barney’s NY, Takashimaya, Lane Crawford, Isetan, Bus Stop, I.T. Hong Kong, Kashiyama, and as well many italian department stores. During the past years the two designers had the opportunity to work with talentive artisans and craftsmen all over Italy. This is the reason why they decided to’ “bring out” the “art” of whatever is “hand made” and “hand crafted”. All the ideas are born in their studio in Milano where they experiment various techniques and procedures such as painting, dying, embroidering and many others. The contemporary style of the collection is focused on the utilization of natural soft and charming materials. The smart combination between the creativity of the designers and their skilled artisans blooms into a fantastic world of desirable accessories. Everything is entirely made in Italy.
