Valentina Sciumé graduated from the Accademia di Costume e di Moda of Rome. While studying she started training with Italian fashion house Alberto Biani in 2007 designing the ready to wear collection for two Seasons. Afterwords she worked at Costume National in the design team for its first line and then spent two and a half years at Versace working on the production of Versace Collection and Versus womens accessories.
With a great professional background and a strong passion for accessories, she founded her label in 2012 and is now launching her first collection of jewels and millinery during Milan Fashion Week in February 2013.
It’s a dream and a life project that comes true reinterpreting the nostalgic style in a modern practical way, always respecting the italian tradition of handcrafted works.
AUTUMN/WINTER COLLECTION 2013-14
For the Autumn/Winter 2013-14 Season, Sciumé introduces two collections: bijoux and millinery.
Both are made in Italy in leading factories using Italian materials.
The bijoux collection comes from a personal interpretation of antique jewels and has its own roots in the Egyptian culture, recalling that special mood and splendor in a new design expression, which combines the preciousness of shapes and materials with the ability of a handmade production.
They are made from the intersection of bras, which is the main material in gold and gun metal grey, crystal filigree and resin cabochon based on engravings.
The millinery collection is inspired by the cinematography shots of the most iconic actresses of all time.
Sciumé gives her own interpretation creating new shapes which fit in a modern and innovative style, so that an ordinary accessory becomes a cool piece of your outfit
This season’s luxury Italian fabrics are: silk velvet, mohair, angora wool, boiled wool, cashmere, felt. Specifically created for the cold places, each item is upholstered with double pile, lapin or synthetic fur.
The colour palette ranges from basic shades like black, grey and ice to vivid tones like plum, red, cobalt, blue, salmon.
