In conjunction with the upcoming Miami Art Week, Bisazza and Emilio Pucci will showcase for the first time in North America BISAZZA wears EMILIO PUCCI, a new collection of Bisazza mosaics inspired by archival Emilio Pucci prints. Including new never-before-seen designs, the collection will be on view at installations in the Bisazza and Emilio Pucci showrooms, both located in the Miami Design District.
On the occasion of Design Miami/ (December 3 – 7, 2014) and Art Basel Miami Beach (December 4 – 7, 2014) luxury Italian mosaic company BISAZZA and legendary fashion house EMILIO PUCCI will showcase for the first time in North America BISAZZA wears EMILIO PUCCI, a new collection of BISAZZA mosaics inspired by historic EMILIO PUCCI prints. The collection will be on view in Miami at the BISAZZA (3740 NE 2nd Avenue), and EMILIO PUCCI (155 NE 40th Street) showrooms, both located in the Design District.
Drawing upon details from original prints signed by the Marquis Emilio Pucci, the new BISAZZA wears EMILIO PUCCI collection translates iconic EMILIO PUCCI designs into large-scale BISAZZA mosaics. The artfully crafted designs capture the unique visual language of Pucci and underscore the artistry of the two companies. The collaboration, which marks BISAZZA’s first fashion partnership, was a journey toward discovering the unique and unparalleled creativity that distinguishes the BISAZZA and EMILIO PUCCI names – two brands recognized internationally for their signature use of pattern and color in sophisticated, daring, and elegant pairings.
The striking colors and bold geometric patterning of the BISAZZA wears EMILIO PUCCI designs were created using both modern technology and traditional handmade techniques. Adapting the famous Pucci prints for interiors, BISAZZA and EMILIO PUCCI have together created refined décor pieces that “dress up” even the most stylish spaces. Created using modern mosaic technology, the Amelie, Onde and Pizzo designs re-envision the distinct visual language that defines the house of Pucci in a new impactful way.
In addition to the digitally created patterns, the BISAZZA wears EMILIO PUCCI collection also includes three limited edition decorative mosaic panels entirely made by hand in the traditional opus tessellatum technique. Blurring the lines between fashion, art, and design, the masterfully crafted mosaic panels are designed to decorate a wide variety of interiors.
“This is a great opportunity for our graphic designs to move beyond the bounds of the concept of fashion, evolving into a bold new artistic expression. Bisazza’s interpretation of our prints underscores their beauty and power, thanks to the fine quality and attention to detail of Italian-made products.”
