VODIVÌ HAS CREATED "PERUGIA" FOR LAKE TRASIMENO, A CAPSULE COLLECTION OF VEGETABLE-TANNED LEATHER BAGS ADORNED WITH LEATHER INSERTS IN PASTEL COLOURS, HAND-MADE USING “LIGHT” AS A PAINTING TECHNIQUE TO GIVE EVERY BAG THAT EXTRA-SPECIAL TOUCH OF DISTINGUISHED PERSONALITY.
“I was so enchanted by this marvelous view that I have never forgotten it and in most of my paintings the main character or the secondary character has always been represented by my lovely Trasimeno”.
“… a spatialization of nature and of the present dynamic life that is conceived as magic to give pure thought and pure soul to the most earthly things. There are no rules to reach that: perhaps it is a secret revealed by my land to those who are able to hear it”.
“… I fly above a gulf or a lake to melt with their green-blue-white-grey liquid, thus reaching my simultaneities of shapecolor including those waters that reflect reciprocally”.
GERARDO DOTTORI, Perugia, 11th
November 1884-Perugia, 13th June 1977
Fragmented lights, multiplied spaces and the sky over Lake Trasimeno which is the protagonist that feeds it with colors, making it “ Heaven”. Beatrice Mezzetti for Vodivì and Tomohiro Nakagaki for Yuhaku have joined their creativity to produce PERUGIA accessories – women’s and men’s bags – that describe Lake Trasimeno with its partial views, its sunsets, its spaces, its vigorous nature getting the idea right from Dottori’s dynamic painting from above. The soul of this collection is linked to the color and only thanks to the “luce” painting technique – spreading a layer of color on another layer that is already dry – it has been possible to obtain inserts with particular shades and nuances, naturally associated to the bright and marvellous colors used by the Umbrian futurist painter, Gerardo Dottori. They can fully characterize every item belonging to PERUGIA with its own sense, with the particular and delicate “pastel” surface.
The water is made of reflected light, of elegant hills and very original mountains, of chromatic harmony that reflects on the lake in any season.
A melody of shades of grey, warm brown and Ochre emphasizes the joy of bright colors used for the hand-painted inserts. The exclusive design that is peculiar to every bag is inspired by clear lines and by the style belonging to the Far East, with a touch of tridimensionality for a modern and basic look.
PERUGIA is practicality and elegance, preciosity in the high quality handicraft finishings; it is an effect that derives from the union between “natural” materials and luxury style.
Every bag of the PERUGIA collection is certified with the controlled traceability brand “TF-Traceability & Fashion” issued by Unionfiliere, the Italian Chamber of Commerce Association, to enhance the Made in Italy supply chains, after some careful controls on quality, style, materials and on the production phases. “TF-Traceability & Fashion” attests that the bags of this collection have a MADE IN ITALY certification on production and also on all the phases that follow and precede it, such as tanning, cutting, preparation and finishing-off.
