NEW SPRING SUMMER COLLECTION | ALWAYS FREE RETURN | GUARANTEED SHIPPING PROCESS

POLLINI "YOU DESIGN"

THE PROJECT IN COLLABORATION WITH ISTITUTO MARANGONI

Pollini launches You Design.
The new contest is in collaboration with the Istituto Marangoni for the creation of a capsule collection that will become part of the Pollini Archive Spring and Summer 2021 collection.

Designed by the students of the Master in Luxury Accessories Design & Management of the Milan and Florence offices, the competing capsules are inspired by the atmospheres and colors of the most fascinating summer destinations in the Mediterranean.
The students were asked to dig into the historical archive of the brand and to create an original capsule, inspired by some of the iconic models of the brand.

A jury of fashion insiders and fashion experts, including journalists and influencers, together with the Creative Director of the brand, voted for the most interesting project.

The capsule - which includes models of four shoe styles and a bag - will be for sale from May in the main Pollini Boutiques and also here in our online Boutique.
