There have been so many of you who have chosen to protect yourselves with the passion (and style) that we at Roberto Collina have put into our face protection masks that we have decided to combat the virus with. In our own way, of course, without ever forgetting that our biggest and most colourful strength is and will always be you. Because we will never lose our love of life and smiling, to the contrary, with one of our masks on your face, it will be even better to meet and start up again!

Batik. The ancient fabric technique created on the Island of Java, in Indonesia, directly reaches the heart of Italy in the wise hands of Roberto Collina, that is making it a passport to welcome in the summer..
An ethnic mood, filled with the fragrance of spices and adventure, for the men’s jumper made in cotton yarn with a special stitch. The jumper is treated with a hand-made batik technique that makes each jumper unique, each one different from the other.
The play on the hues of blue, grey and white emphasises the effect, making the jumper looking like a picture of water, something we can’t do without.
The perfect garment for moving gently towards the summer season, but no less stylish for that.
We have tried, putting our heart, passion and solidarity into it; we have given each of these an important task, that of protecting you with you losing the will to live and wanting beautiful things; we have made them and we were even happier to see them sell out in just a shortspace of time.
And so we went back to work. And we wanted to do more. Because each of us wanted to create our own model of mask, that could be a souvenir of them, that included our favourite colours or pattern, our own energy. This is how the new Roberto Collina masks have been created. They have a soul, that of each person who has worked to bring to life a project that we believe in more than anything else.
Because we can only get through this together.

Emergency rhymes with solidarity: at Roberto Collina, we know all about that, and that is why we have organised ourselves to fight this really difficult health crisis caused by Covid-19 together with you.
And we have done that in the way we know best: working together to create the most useful and necessary tool to contain the virus, masks.
We have converted a part of our production line to make non-woven fabric and cotton/lurex face masks that have been tested to make sure they are breathable, water-resistant and biocompatible, naturally made in compliance with the Ministry for Health circular ( COVID-TER Decree from 16/03/2020 article 16). The result is here for you, and more importantly, for your skin to feel: double layers of cotton or lurex and two layers of non-woven fabric that is resistant to the humidity produced through breathing. All finished off with two elastic loops to wear behind your ears and a central wire to help the mask fit around your nose.
An extra plus point? The colour! We have decided to combat the virus with our favourite weapon, bright colours and cheerful patterns: because the desire to live is the only thing we can be infected with!

When the liveliest creativity encounters the ductility of matter, the result is mind-blowing. This is the magic of knitwear that the artisanal expertise at Roberto Collina bends in the most unbelievable ways using combinations of unique textures straight out of a work of art. It is also that human touch that makes the difference in the Pressed range of vases by the Dutch Studio Floris Wubben, created through a mix of mechanical and handmade production, reminiscent of ancient traditions while conjuring up the future at the same time..
True enhancement of the essence of matter, that exhibits all its nature in such an unusual, original manner; it is a return to primitive design, where communication between man and machine is resplendent, merging aesthetic beauty and practicality in these ceramic vases, just like in Roberto Collina’s knitwear.
A warm, special light, mellow and narratively intense colours, strong images that hit our eyes as part of an emotional story to gaze at. This is Salva Lopez’s photography, a captivating hybrid where the graphic design atmospheres combine with the magic of a story that leave room, like in a documentary, for the taste of simple, powerful things, primordial sensations, and hearts to emerge.
Relaxed, direct, no-filter images, that are both natural and minimalist, all with the recognisable architectural signature of the Spanish photographer, who often appears in the most prestigious international magazines (from Monocle to The New York Times and Bloomberg) and which are closely linked to the aquatic inspirations of Roberto Collina’s summer collection.
