SANTA MARIA LIGURE
Behind The Scenes

Santa Maria Ligure and Portofino served as the perfect backdrop for Neri Karra’s latest collection. I visited the beautiful Italian Riviera this summer, and immediately felt a special connection. I knew I had to somehow return to this place. The opportunity presented itself only few months later when the originally planned Florence location was no longer an option.  Instead, and luckily, the owner of Grand Hotel Miramare was very kind to offer the hotel’s premises for us to use during and as a sort of studio for the shoot. Andrea Vailletti photographed the beautiful Monica Pedro and Gui Fedrizzi. Needless to say, we celebrated in the end by sipping fresh peach bellinis at Bar Ugo in Portofino.

NERI KARRA CRAFTSMANSHIP
Love Made Visible

Our lives have become fast. We want everything right here and right now, and often not satisfied with what we get but moving onto the next best thing. Most of us don’t take the time to see the wonder of nature, to appreciate what is in front of us, and to say yes to life  - no matter what the present moment entails.

Doing things slowly, with great love and attention to detail, honoring tradition and more importantly, honoring and being present with the work in front of you is what Neri Karra prides itself for. We do smallest things with great love – a wallet, a key chain, a handbag. A wallet is made of approximately 90 parts, and every single part is crafted meticulously and by hand. In the words of Lebanese poet Khalil Gibran, work is love made visible, and to work with love is to weave the cloth with threads drawn from one’s heart.
