The name of this capsule collection is Tutti Frutti. The theme is Expo 2015 and it’s made in collaboration with Gaia Segattini (aka Vendetta Uncinetta). After Nodo, another exciting collaboration that is daughter of our Fuori Expo partecipation in Milan.
What is Tutti Frutti?
“Tutti Frutti” is a re-fashioning project realised in a co-branding between Bettaknit and Vendetta Uncinetta. The recipe is simple. Start with a base of original spanish Espadrillas: cotton, juta and natural rubber sole. An artisan quality product, a recall to summer and to the never forgot 80’s.
Choose an important theme like the Expo Milan one. Add the secret ingredient, Gaia Segattini. Flavor all with bright colors of the high quality and sustainable yarn like Pima Cotton. The result are espadrillas with small crochet fruits: unique pieces totally handmaded. A joy of pineapples, watermelons and bananas!
But this is only the beginning: Tutti Frutti is the preview of a larger project on re-fashion for kids that will come out next autumn. Soon all the news about it!
Why a collaboration with Gaia Segattini (Vendetta Uncinetta)?
We met Gaia some years ago. For us, it was love at first sight. We share the same philosophy. We love unique fashion, not mass-produced. We love the irony, lightness in dealing with things. We think that “you can do so much with little”. We strongly believe that the DIY is an anti-stress low-cost and extremely suitable for everyone. Vendetta Uncinetta was the ideal partner for Tutti Frutti!
