To raise its brand profile, Bruno Magli, on top of its Pitti presentation, also held an event at the Westin Excelsior Hotel on Wednesday to unveil a limited-edition capsule collection conceived with New York based artist Brian Kenny. The line consisted of four black loafers and a bag featuring exclusive glow-in-the-dark decorations created by Kenny. We took the inspiration from Pier Paolo Pasolinis movie Medea, featuring Maria Callas, explained Bruno Magli creative director Max Kibardin, revealing that is developing further artistic collaborations, including an upcoming project with an undisclosed jewelry designer. Magli, which is gearing up to revamp both its Milan and Venice boutiques with a new concept, also will move its American headquarters to Manhattan and plans to open a new store in London, according to CEO Armin Mueller.
