It's really astonishing that the only Italian designer who creates accessories in a so-called "rock/motorbike rider" style is located in Milan's most exclusive fashion district. His belts with silver buckles are made from crocodile, shark, ostrich, iguana, cobra and other skins (made to measure service available). Jewels and other bizarre items in silver as well.
Cusi, one of Milan's traditional jewelers, has now reached its fourth generation. Since the war Cusi, like all the famous jewelers, is also in the Monte Napoleone district. He presents a vast array of beautifully designed jewels, particularly with gold and precious stones.
.:. Mario Buccellati
Founded in 1919, this shop has been in Via Monte Napoleone since the 1960s. Mario Buccellati created what is known as the Buccellati style: a technique that requires coordinated and creative teamwork design in order to obtain the lacy, delicate look of its valuable jewels, each of which is individually designed for its future owner. Buccellati has also gained a reputation as a silversmith creating an extraordinary world of lifelike animals.
This shop, founded in 1967, launched what in Milan goes by the name of gioielli poveri (jewelry made with low-cost materials) and microgioielli; they consist of infinite variations and combinations of materials - such as leather and gold, or wood, ivory and gold - for tiny enamelled jewels.
