Donatella Raggio is a 36-year-old Neapolitan Designer formed by Vincenzo Attolini’s “school”, well-known Neapolitan entrepreneur and stylist, heir of a long full Neapolitan sartorial tradition that, 15 years ago, founds the brand Stile Latino, today widespread globally and positioned in the luxury level of the best department stores in the world.
“Donatella Raggio made by Stile latino” it’s her first collection.
Donatella herself has a “sartorial” family background: daughter of a well-known Neapolitan tailor in vogue between the ’70s and the’ 90s, she grows among the fabrics, the scissors, the models of the father’s tailoring, breathing since the early age the smell of creativity.
A never really forgotten “Love”, that after graduating in Political Science and experience as a journalist (writing, her other great passion) she enrolled in a course in Fashion Design that allows her to put her aesthetic vision on paper.
Vincenzo Attolini, for his part, had always fantasized about a woman line that was completely independent from the male one, developing himself the first collections, intended to satisfy the needs of a female clientele with a formal taste and always showing them as a rib of the main line.
Those that were the stylistic digressions of a creative mind then took shape in a totally new project in whose helm, the same Attolini, decided to put Donatella Raggio, the one who for 5 years was his closest collaborator in the men’s style office.
From here the passage is short: V. Attolini totally entrusts the new project to his collaborator for a “Donatella Raggio” made by Stile Latino.
The result is a collection completely different from the previous ones, destined to a woman who aspires to elegance, without renouncing to the modernity of lines and fabrics.
A woman with a sophisticated allure but yet casual in the expression of her style, who lives her time and lives it in a joyful way because she’s free to express her femininity in a harmonious way.
An exclusive, sophisticated, refined collection starting from the choice of raw materials up to manufacturing.
A woman line completely independent from the man one, with a detached production unit and an independent style office.
The qualitative guarantee is given by the fact that it is produced and distributed by Stile Latino, today one of the most prestigious brands in the men’s fashion scene.
The selection of raw materials, made by Donatella herself and her “tiny female team” (as she likes to emphasize) corresponds to very high quality standards.
The style of the collection is told below with a brief story telling and enriched by some images that unveil the AW 18-19 campaign.
