During the summer of 2012. Michele was submersed in the realization of his Atelier in the Florentine neighbourhood of Santa Croce, beating heart of the creative Florence and home to the oldest leather crafters laboratories. That day he was invited for lunch from an architecture university colleague of his at her office. While eating and talking at the computer desk they discover a fashion call out with deadline the same day at six PM. With a pen and a yellow highlighter he gave freedom to his creativity. That day the “Star Clutch” and the “Dog Clutch” came to life.
