COLLECTION 2011 | IL CaravaggIO

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio the avant-garde painter, famous for his use of light, drama and sensuality. His idiosyncratic style and his unique use of light and shade have had an enduring effect on the work of many prominent artists. Caravaggios (1571-1610) works, as well as his life story, shaped by passions with emotional highs and lows, continue to have a seminal effect on the history of painting even today. The refined elegance of the new ardECOra collection IL CaravaggIO reflects the varied personality of this eccentric artist. His precise and naturalistic paintings revolutionized the art world and his special lighting effects, the so-called chiaroscuro technique, gave his work a unique atmosphere.

The collection is dedicated to this spirit of duality and its harmonious interplay between contrasts. The subtle materials, fascinating textures and elegant palette of colours interweave to create unmistakable sensuality.

Whether its ENIgMa, iridescent velour printed with shimmering metal pigments or SENSUaLITa, an opulent satin which develops a fascinating depth thanks to matte velour applications, the fabrics produce an intriguing dialogue. The tactile drama in the light interplay in the vENTUra velour, created using an intricate embossing technique, produces an extraordinarily lively three-dimensional effect. The surfaces and colours of the fabric flirt with the light, creating a wealth of new combinations.

IL CaravaggIO plays with subtle harmonies to produce enchanting refinement. The collection draws on the beauty of contrast, uniting clear struc-tures with elaborate ornaments or cool silk with warm velvet. This collection combines sumptuous materials with the highest quality. Timeless design and sophisticated elegance create the perfect effect. Enticing light effects and sensuous charisma seduce one into a world constantly ready to be rediscovered.
