Italian, fashion and jewelry are three words that go together like 18K yellow gold and Italian leather jacket.
So when one say Nomination Italy, its easy to conjure up ”jewellery Made in Italy, with love and passion.” There is no mistaking the quality and the innovative characteristicas of a bracelet, necklace or ring that is described as the cutting edge of Italian fashion jewelry when it comes off the drawing table of Nomination Italy.
Following in the footsteps of a tradition that stretches back further than the Etruscans, Nomination began its story in a small town on the outskirts of Florence in the 1980′s. With the objective to bring quality yet affordable jewelry with a distinctive Italian signature to the public, the owner Paolo Gensini mixed goldsmith traditions with Italian design and stainless steel to create several collections which still lead the sector in stainless steel and gold jewelry in creativity and quality. Over time they have added enamels, stones, precious and semi precious gems, diamonds, Swarovski elements and crystals uniting them with Italian ingenuity and keeping a finger on the trends, emotions and values of the young at heart.
Though their composable, or modular bracelet, is an icon in the Italian fashion jewelry world, they have also created several other lines of trend setting pieces. Pierotucci, a qulaity Italian leather jacket and handbag producer is always delighted to offer other quality Made in Italy handcrafts – and nothing is more exciting to them to offer Nomination, who comes from their hometown of Florence. Pierotucci has added new online some delicate additions to the style FREEDOM. The style Freedom uses some strong rock symbols like the razor blade and handcuffs to represent a powerful concept : Liberty. Free to be who you want, when you want, to live the power and energy of a generation.

There are many ways to express yourself in Italy. There are hand gestures flying about on a regular basis, all sorts of facial expressions, hello and goodbye kisses from cheek to cheek, not to mention the slang and funny sayings the Italians have. But these things just add to the reasons why we love and adore Italy and the Italians.
Getting back to “caro asserpentato”, this is an old Tuscan “modo di dire” or saying originating from the fact that reptiles skins, even way back when, were something to be desired and typically more valued and considered more precious than others. Nowadays the Italians use it to express something that is exclusive and if you combine exclusivity with python you get a beautiful handmade Italian leather handbag by Caterina Lucchi.
The new Fall and Winter Collection is one of a kind. One style, which is made in two sizes, comes in both auburn orange and a gray-blue. This style, in orange for example, boasts a canvas base with an array of rustic orange colored leather work on the front of the bag and the larger one even has a unique external leather cell phone pocket on the backside.
And my personal favorite is the larger Senape colored tote with frilled, zipper leather detailing on the front of the bag. This too, comes in a smaller clutch version, both which can be worn with an optional cross body strap.
It’s all in the details with Caterina Lucchi. Between the original vintage coloring, the washed leather, and feminine deatils, you won’t find handbags like these anywhere else.
