navarra gaetano


Navarra Gaetano (1970). Italian designer. Of Spanish origin, hewas born in Bologna where he gained experience in his family’s knitwear factory as he grew up. He has combined a technical background with his innovative personal taste to create a dynamic image for contemporary life. With a shaved head and arms decorated with tribal tattoos, Navarra himself reflects the spirit of a free man. The “rock soul” embodied in his collections manifests a taste for provocation blended with an extreme femininity.

Small leather goods

One of the first initiatives is the partnership, since 2005, with Marianelli Srl, for a license to produce and distribute accessories, bags and small leather goods for men and women. The partner ship succeded in quadrupling the turnover and expanding the activity and the visibility of the brand. Bags, briefcases, belts and clutches, which well represent the quality craftsmanship and style of Navarra. As it happens with the ready-to-wear clothing, also the accessories collections count on the fidelity of about 300 points of sale in Italy and abroad, while the distribution is entrusted to a network of 13 agents to extend in Europe, Far East, United States and Japan.
