Italian brands for the summer that (maybe) you don't know Ready to do some shopping for the coming months?

Temperatures are rising. Spring is blossoming and summer is near, actually very close. It's time for a wardrobe change, to rethink our style, choosing to enrich it with some statement pieces to freshen up our looks for the upcoming months. Why not choose among the new talents of made in Italy? Their names? Les Filles d’Eva, Catheclisma, Criloi, Giglio Tigrato, Eufonia, Marina Moscone. They are young, passionate, creative, independent, talented, inclusive, often sustainable. They are small growing realities, talents in the making, all different from each other, but equally capable of creating style and coolness by playing with cuts, silhouettes, and colors. Some prefer flowing and dreamy dresses, some focus on timeless pieces destined to become essentials in our wardrobes, and some dream of dressing an independent and sensual woman who is not afraid to show her uniqueness. Here is a selection of brands to explore for the season.

Les Filles d’Eva 

Les filles d’Eva is designed for a feminine, spontaneous, independent, and confident woman, who is not afraid to show who she is nor to flaunt bold pieces or bright colors. The spring-summer 2024 collection, protagonist of pop-ups that will remain open until April 4th at Rinascente in Rome, perfectly reflects the mood of Matteo Evandro Manzini's brand thanks to the mix between the '70s and 2000s styles of the garments. Among the highlights of the collection are the boho-style maxi dresses, the deconstructed denim with visible stitches, and the more sensual silhouettes, suitable for an evening date.


The word cataclysm comes from Greek, indicating something that arrives suddenly and leaves a mark. Like a flood and like Caterina Grieco, who studied at the Politecnico di Milano and at the École Duperré in Paris, and who poured her talent into her brand, Catheclisma. The project was born during the lockdown with Camille, the first romantic creation with ruffles and balloon sleeves that would be perfect worn by Bella Baxter. Over time come Eloise, Isabelle, Madeleine, Margot, Lolie, Macondo, and all the other models strictly made with fabrics recovered from warehouse funds and production scraps. Each garment is made to measure, for a total of up to 50 pieces produced, conceived by Caterina together with a team of three seamstresses. The result is sustainable, dreamy, timeless garments, to be flaunted on any occasion, playing with styling.


Eufonia is a clothing brand specialized in knitwear with a minimal and elegant look, 100% Made in Italy. Feel the ocean, the SS24 collection is inspired by the beauty and depth of water. It steals the colors from a summer day by the ocean. Blue, light blue, pastel yellow merge with classic black and white to give a timeless touch to bodycon models, dresses with cut-out details, ribbed cotton sets, asymmetric blouses, and linen boyfriend shirts to wear with coordinated shorts or with the essentials of our wardrobe.


Clothing, jewelry, and home decor. Criloi, a brand founded by Cristina Loi in 2012, is an eclectic universe made of dramatic silhouettes, quality, cool collaborations, and pieces capable of merging past and present to create something unique and interesting. The jewelry pieces are true statements that give a twist to even the dullest outfit. The candle holder is the result of a collaboration with designer Ambroise Maggiar and is inspired by the magic of Milanese architecture. The latest capsule? It's called Past/Future and features coordinated shirt-skirt sets, organza pieces, lycra tops, perfect to wear in the warm seasons as mini dresses, and tailored gabardine pants. The collection's plus? It comes from the work of the social cooperative @iamaliceitaly, which deals with the social reintegration of incarcerated and former incarcerated women.

Giglio Tigrato

Durability, quality, and versatility. Giglio Tigrato is a brand born from the creativity of Carlotta Orlando, who in September 2020 transformed her grandmother's attic into her studio and combined the passion of its founder for painting, fashion, and upcycling. The result is limited collections of vintage and non-vintage garments, composed of unique pieces, free from the concept of seasonality, gender, production, and mass consumption. Inspiration comes from the most disparate contexts, from the Japanese urban world, from travels, from childhood memories, from past traditions, and translates into versatile garments, often with extravagant and provocative colors, patterns, or cuts.

Marina Moscone 

Born in Canada to an Abruzzese father and a South African mother, Marina Moscone studied fashion at Parsons School of Design in New York before launching her brand in 2016 with Francesca Moscone. The idea for her garments develops in the Big Apple, draping and twisting fabrics on mannequins and then being made by the skilled hands of Italian tailoring masters. From the union of diverse cultures, united by love for fashion and beauty, luxurious collections come to life, with modern silhouettes, perfect for dressing warm spring and summer nights.
