Famous Italian boutique and brand, Mauro Guerresco, has opened its very first UK store on the exclusive King’s Road in Chelsea, London. The family-run brand, originating from plush ski resort Cortina in Italy where it has four stores, has long been famous for its unique fur and leather creations, showcasing the very finest in Italian fashion and craftsmanship.
Already highly popular with locals, the store carries its own capsule collection including the bestselling and interchangeable fur lined parka, as well as capes, cropped fur jackets and lapin skin hats. In addition, the brand recently introduced the SS15 collection, which plays host to a plethora of embellishments from tassels and fringing to silk embroidery, lace and contrast paneling.
Amongst his luxury items Mauro has selected a few key pieces for a spin on the classic festival look, perfect for both day and night, on the farm at Glastonbury or at dance festivals in the city. Choices include the camel coloured fringed waistcoat and the perfect choice for a long weekender – the fashionable, yet practical (and waterproof!) parka.
Animalistic, safari prints create standout looks, whilst the monochrome leather biker jacket with multi-fringing paired with a light summer dress will present a relaxed style, with an edge.
Accessories too feature in abundance, with stingray clutches, bright horn-handlemini bucket bags and metallic leather shoppers. You’ll also find hats, shoes, sunglasses and a small scattering of avant-garde jewellery.
Everything in store is available for purchase; that includes the interior – bleached antler chandeliers, palm-tree shaped lamps, rare editorial manuscripts, baskets for game, fox-skin rugs, vintage cow-skin armchairs and lots more!
“Our initial aim from the very beginning was to underline the importance of artisanal research and originality which distinguishes all of the products we offer. Our search has enabled us to diversify our offerings to include furniture and objects of interior design which round out and define the total lifestyle concept of quality that we have created.”- Mauro Guerresco
The store also supports exquisite designs by emerging Italian talents, such as Ermanno Gallamini, Michele Rossie, Andrea Cardone and Opera prima, as well as well-known international designers Charles Phillip, Steve Madden and Jeffrey Campbell.
