SO-LE STUDIO was born in London under the helm of Creative Director and Founder Maria Sole Ferragamo with a clear vision: to transform quality leftover materials such as leather and brass into unique jewellery, amulets and armours.
Since 2019 SO-LE STUDIO combines the presence of its creative headquarter in Milan with the production taking place on the hills around Florence.
The creative principles of SO-LE STUDIO resonate with its core philosophy: discarded materials are the starting point of an artistic creation. Seeing strength in scarcity, Maria Sole transforms materials into unique wearable design objects, naturally limited in numbers.
These sustainable works of art are inspired by durability, dynamism, versatility, lightness and a sense of provocation.
SO-LE STUDIO presents a collection per year while existing creations are constantly reinterpreted with shades and finishing.
