Ugo Masini 

Ugo Masini was born in Latina, on the coast south of Rome on the 24th of September 1981. After studying at the school of art, he enrolled at “La Sapienza” University of Rome specialising in costume and fashion design.

During his university career he spent his first years in the fashion and costume world working as a costume designer for the theatre, styling and fashion photo shoots.

All his creations were entirely handmade.

Masini’s works were guided by his own philosophy “Le Gout Intérieur” meaning the research of a style in fashion which reflects and express our own innermost taste. Every single individual should dress according to their own personality”.

The uniqueness of every person inspires Ugo to work with his recycling-textiles and vintage pieces.




With such a strong sense of cinema and fashion and her experience in dance and music, Leda Mazzariello, stage name Strabilia, opens her mind to any idea in order to develop her application as graphic designer.

With her fantasy Leda is able to transform inner tubes from wheels or cutlery in stylish works…a bit like a Cinderella’s fairy with her pumpkin!

Leda’s bags are exclusive handmade creations: mini and maxi bags, clutch bag, shoulder bags are refined in every design details, using different techniques time after time, depending on the features of the inner tube used that could be reused from a car, a bicycle or a tractor.
