Can you share with us an insight into your creative design process?
It comes easy to me to define myself as a melancholic person, even if I’m such a cheerful and entusiastic individual. The thing is most of my inspiration comes from the past: mine, or past events in general. I’ll always liked to make up stories with colors and shapes I have seen. I’m in love with the late seventies: music, cinema, architecture. Every artistic field of that period it’s pure pleasure for me, and a deep source of inspiration. Moodboards are my life savers. I always have a lot in my “inspiration’s folders” – mine are spread everywhere – , and having a board where I can put together everything, examinate every piece and develop a story is foundamental, even because I am quite a perfectionist: none, nor the last detail, has to be left by chance.
What kind of materials do you like to work with, are there any materials specifically you would
like to explore in your next collections?
Euterpe bags are entirely realized using finest leather only. Our calfskin leather is processed in Italy, with products that meet the newest norms about sustainability and respect of the environment.
We truly believe in the concept of durability and sustainability that calfskin offers, but I guess my curiosity will lead me in trying some fabric in the future, maybe. I am really fascinated by textile design and prints.
What’s in the future for Euterpe? Do you have any exciting future plans?
We are always developing some new styles: my schetchbook is full of drawings which are going to become protypes, one by one. Some wallets will be out very soon, together with a “unisex” collection of backpacks and bags. We would like to see a “man” section next. We love to be always out with some news, so we try to be always developing something.
