It all started with the timeless glamour of the Neapolitan island of Capri
Born in Italy, where style is an attitude and looking good is an art form, Antonietta developed her enthusiasm and lust for style and fashion.
Growing up in the beautiful Neapolitan Riviera, beloved by the rich and famous, Antonietta has a natural flair for Mediterranean elegance, and is a passionate advocate of all that epitomises Capri lifestyle. Artisanal work and art in all its forms has always been Antonietta’s passion and inspiration.
After moving to England, Antonietta could never forget her most treasured memories – the sounds of the waves on the shore, the gentle Capri & Positano breeze, the secrets of those warm summer nights and musical note; ‘La Dolce Vita’!
Drawing on her years of experience within the fashion industry and as a stylist, Antonietta decided to recapture “the magic” in the form of beautifully crafted Capri sandals.
A word from the founder and designer
Antonietta: ‘I felt it was important to give something back to a place that has given me so many memories. I wanted to acclaim and support, in my little way, the beauty of the traditional handcraft techniques, the work of artisans that for years have used their skilful hands cutting, stitching leather and embellishing one of the most iconic sandals in the world, “THE CAPRI SANDAL.’
Moreover, the idea of having a product that remains exclusive, enhances a woman’s personality and is truly a piece of art, has always appealed to me, as I am sure it appeals to many women of elegance and style out there.
To me, craftsmanship is a distinctive skill nurtured by love , that comes alive in the hands of the purchaser.’
Working between the Neapolitan Riviera, Capri and the UK she is delighted to present her elite collection of beautiful handmade embellished ‘Capri Sandals’ – named ‘Caprissima’.
