Constantly amazed how the Italian man, in a nonchalant and bold way, can make something that for us was unthinkable, look perfectly natural.
Oh the wonders of Pitti. I recall a message from our friend DH on his latest visit to the menswear show in Florence about wrist wear by Viola Milano or VM as he called it, “all the sledgods are wearing them” – he wasn’t lying. Following gallery after gallery of Pitti street style, one thing was clear – VM was everywhere.
Lately wrist wear and accessories have become a huge focus in the world of men’s style. The ability to add that little extra level of detail to even the most traditional outfit is an idea that has been explored by Italian men forever. Inspired by the eccentric spring style of the men of Milan, Viola Milano was born out of a desire to offer the men of the world a quality line of accessories to personalise every outfit with a touch of style. With summer on the horizon VM’s vision statement couldn’t emulate Australian style any better: ‘To lead men worldwide to a life more well dressed and beautiful, filled with colours and expressions of personal style’.
Viola Milano bracelets are made in Italy from semi-precious gemstones finished with an antique sterling silver detail and come in 3 sizes. We spent a couple of days with a selection of wrist wear from the VM range and shot some great photos. Check them out below.
Stay tuned for Viola Milano’s highly luxurious range of 7-fold Cashmere and Grenadine ties with hand rolled edges. They are sure to be a treat!
