The method

Tradition, innovation, research and development

Research and sampling development takes part in our style office with the help of a newspaper library and specialised historical and up-to-date archives. The most important international trade magazines, grafic and photografic material, sample pieces etc…. along with seasonal fashion meetings for forcasting fashion and updating trends, support the innovative and cosmopolitan vibe of the collections. 


Lugo one of the first silk markets in Italy

Historically Lugo has always been considered the seat of a thriving market. The origin of the name is connected to the sale of silk cocoons, in fact the term Pavaglione derives from the Latin papilio, butterfly, which in French evolved into a bow tie.
