TRIBUTE TO THE WORLD OF ART
In developing its image and communication, the creativity of STEFANO RICCI has opted for a message with ties to the art world. The harmony of architecture, expression and the cultural value of art all provide a new source of inspiration for the Florentine designer. The aim is to pay tribute to human ingenuity and skilled craftsmanship, in keeping with Florence's time-honoured traditions and the quest for Italian excellence.
 
RENÉ MAGRITTE
The first tribute is to the surrealism of René Magritte, who associated sartorial production with the portrayal of dreams. In 2011, a catalogue loosely interpreting the works of the artist was produced. The garments and accessories of the collection, paired with the works of Magritte, seem to surpass the dimension of reality as well.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
JACK VETTRIANO
In his search for original artistic works that convey emotions and elegance, Stefano Ricci has interpreted the paintings of Scottish painter Jack Vettriano. Every picture created by the painting tells a story as it seduces the public with its powerful details. With his handmade creations, the designer makes products of outstanding quality, adorned with details that imbue them with timeless value.
 
THE SELF-PORTRAITS OF THE UFFIZI GALLERY
A style tenet of unrivalled excellence, the Self-Portraits cataloge provides further proof of the close ties linking Stefano Ricci to the Uffizi Gallery. Following the fashion show in 2012 and the donation of the new lighting for the Loggia dei Lanzi, the designer opted to stage a new tribute to his home city.
 
RENEÉ GRUAU
The last catalogue inspired by the world of art is an invitation to rediscover the talent of René Gruau, a genius of fashion design and graphic design. He has been universally acknowledged for his outstanding ability to illustrate elegance and the art of living. Gruau first made a name for himself in France, but in actual fact his roots are Italian. His portraits of high society from the ‘50s and ‘60s, up to the fabulous ‘80s, constitute an archive of good taste and tongue-in-cheek irony. For this reason, Stefano Ricci has decided to put forward the pertinence of being as the aesthetic element of outstanding quality Italian products.
