Not a fascinator, but certainly fascinating and worthy of a Spring Racing Carnival look
When the Italian’s do something they do it well.
When the Italian in question moves from Milan, fresh from coordinating exhibitions in galleries and museums such as Ferrara’s Palazzo dei Diamanti and Rome’s Palazzo Venezia you stand up and take a good look.
This is a look you’ll want…mostly affordable, unique and characterized by unexpected materials including PVC, vinyl (old records that is), aluminum and onion skin.
Spring Racing Carnival girls?!
Bini Gallery is not your usual jewellery store. Expect a very individual style, handcrafted by independent makers from Puglia, the heel of Italy and glass studios in Venice to the North.
Owner Lorenza Bini says, “you can play with materials and achieve a great result, even if the materials aren’t precious.”
Wearable and distinctive is the name of the game. Designed to wear with the sassy frocks or jeans, pieces from this collection will makes you feel special.
Walk around the store (designed by Lorenza’s husband, architect Lorenzo Nuti) and try everything on. Lorenza will talk you thru’ the unique character of each piece and the unique traits of her designer motherland.
Bini is worthwhile noticing, particularly when you’re the one being noticed.
