FOSSILS SHELLS TELL US THAT...
Cordien is a label founded in 2016 by the designer Sofia Codraro as a natural evolution of her previous collaboration with luxury brands, most of all with Trussardi and the Turkish designer Umit Benan, developing the clothing and accessories collections for the men and women's main lines.
A new creative language was born from the encounter of the two designer, who chose to showcase the collections through illustrations. Together they fostered a new stylistic code, that comes across today as the fashion house's leitmotiv.
Sofia's style plays with the illustrations from enamel brass in her "Cordien" jewellery collection.
A powerful and dressy concept where craftmaship and design find concrete expression in ironic bijoux and sophisticated and eclectic collection is characterized by a mood with colorful and vibrant contemporary tribute to the beauty and the characteristics of women from different countries.
The collection is built around feminine figures touring through Hawaii, Japan , Mexico, Texas, France, England, and in settings such as the Tropical Forest and the Ocean.
The balance of materials is the key to the movement of the entire collection brass melting into enamel for a sparkling and spicy look, while the lightest and high-quality gold-plating are the basis for shimmering details and accessories.
A language which describes the characteristics of different cultures, an alchemy, an homage to the richness of different countries. A fusion of evocations, a poetic story, a rediscovery of a wit that is childish in some ways, and for this reason almost forgotten.
A fan of female figures in which characterising elements, real or fantastic, authentic or imaginary, synthesize themselves to create the composition of a caricature, bijoux almost “Totemic”, an instinctive and light interpretation of the world.
A creative path, an euphoric journey through Hawaii, Mexico, Texas, Japan, France, England, the rainforest and the ocean, finding the little details to make eyes smile.
The Ladies are seen from the back In a way that we, behind them, can imagine observing the same immense panorama, a vision from behind the scenes, as one would be a spectator of a great show, to describe them without disturbing them.
A collection born from illustrations which have taken a form in brass and varnished, gold or ruthenium plated. Varnished one by one by Italian craftsmen in perfect harmony with Sofia Codraro, designer and illustrator who has as an objective to attract the attention to the magic on the diversities that come to form a surpriseling great whole.
