Spiga 2 is an innovative project headed by Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. Now in its third year, the boutique in central Milan, Via Spiga specializes in distributing a pick of promising emerging designers.
Dolce&Gabbana want to support emerging talents by giving them visibility and retail space in an area they would fins difficult to penetrate at the start. This season we’ll focus on some of our favourites. This week: Andrea Incontri.
Andrea Incontri started his journey in to the word of design with architecture. He began his career as an interior designer and boasts collaborations with Alessi and Samsung. His architectural background pushed him to consider form and materials. His first approach to the fashion world was in designing boutiques and concept stores for international brands.
In 2000 he began to move into the world of fashion design with a collaboration with the Tuscan leather makers guild. In 2009 he launched his own brand of accessories and the following year he expanded into menswear. In 2012 he’s reached full circle launching his womenswear collection. His sensual and romantic women believed in the mantra “less is more” and will embrace his minimalist yet architectural style.
