Giovanni Gastel, “a gentleman-craftsman with a sense of humor”, has been a leading international photographer and artist for more than thirty years. The author of great advertising campaigns and masterful exhibitions of fine art, he has contributed his “chic touch” to Italian design house Cruciani. Elegance is the keyword for his style: elegance, that is, “in an ethical rather than an aesthetic sense”.

Cruciani has a reputation for creating collections made from the highest and finest quality cashmere, cashmere silk and wool and this collection is a showcase of that meticulous craftsmanship. The AW15-16 collection draws inspiration from a true icon, Jane Birkin. Each piece is produced from the highest quality materials and soft lines and minimalism are the key concepts. The collection is influenced by Birkin’s inherent elegance and sensuality.

The Cruciani FW2015 collection is available at the Cruciani boutique in BurJuman, Dubai.
