It all started with a natural shell picked up while walking on the Adriatic sea but mostly due to my insatiable passion for Italian craftsmanship. Art and Tradition combined to create a Union of cultures treasured by both Women and Men. Malaika comes from Africa, the land of my birth. It means Beauty, Youth and most importantly, Angel! Because of it, I have nurtured the feeling of being a real melting pot of cultural backgrounds and continents between Africa, Indonesia, Usa and Europe, precisely Italy.
Each piece is passionately and highly artisan-made in Italy available in Gold 18carat and Silver 925°/... ; Yellow Gold Plating, Pink Gold Plating; Black (White upon request) Rodhium.
A citizen of the world reflected in my Art.
Each piece comes with a silver handworked ring/snap-hook to accessorize the Jewel as key holder, or perhaps a pendant to your purse or handbag as well as briefcase; not to mention your belt or your wrist alongside a silk or cotton handmade ribbon to top it all off.
Simply Luxurious! Make it your own, wherever you are…
This collection goes hand in hand with perfection showing how beautiful and elegant things are when they are not lost in the single detail but when form, art and design achieve the perfect balance…
Malaika is that perfect balance combining true Italian tailoring with Asian roots such as Batik and hand painted Art altogether to achieve the ultimate elegance and uniqueness.
The goal behind this mini Collection is Slow Fashion but most of all the Unicity within each style.
There are 3 sizes per style, each one worked out differently to highlight their irreplicability. It is of utter importance to emphasize the uniqueness and singleness of each piece as each one stands on its own despite being part of an ensemble.
Malaika reinforces and prizes artisan-made quality over quantity and industrialization….
Ultimately, Less is More just as Ludwig Mies van der Rohe once said.
