Pepavana presents Monica, Jane & Edie at Masterly The Dutch in Milano

Pepavana è Pepa van Asperen, una designer con sede a Rotterdam che dispone di una collezione di accessori fatti a mano  duraturi e innovativi.  La creatrice dà un significato nuovo agli articoli classici provenienti dal propio contesto e ambiente culturale (figlia di un barcaiolo) rimodellando gli stessi in oggetti contemporanei. Pepavano ha trasformato articoli vecchio stile come le ghette in accessori provocatori ed esclusivi per i tacchi alti: le Pepavanas.


“Jane, Monica & Edie” rappresenta i modelli esposti, chi prendono il nome dalle icone femminili che avrebbero potuto indossare le Pepavanavas nella loro epoca, create al 100% in feltro di lana naturale (miscugli di biondo, marrone e nero), e ‘’Jane-in-colours”

Accanto a 3 borse. Nelle sue creazioni Pepavana genera tensione esplorando i confini della comodità e funzionalità, come nel caso dello O-bag, una borsa di carattere.

La MSB trova la sua origine in una piccola borsa di tessuto, usata comunemente in famiglia quando si andava a prendere il pane. La ”Mini Shopper Bag” è minimalista ed elegante come il nuovo design di sacchi per scarpe.

MASTERLY è una mostra interdisciplinare del design, dell’arte, dell’artigianato, della moda e della fotografia olandese nel cuore del quartiere delle 5 Vie
