Isabel Benenato

Isabel Benenato is profoundly Italian. From her childhood in Naples raised by her mother, a seamstress who worked with her brother’s tailoring company, and with her maternal grandfather, a passionate artist who filled her family home with his paintings, she developed her own passion for drawing and design surrounded by fabrics while watching her mother at the sewing machine. After studying foreign languages and literature at the University of Pisa, Benenato pursued her dream to design, and launched her own women’s collection in 2008 which quickly attracted great stores worldwide, from Milan, London, to Tokyo. 

Her clothes for men and women are full of light and shadow, with a feeling of depth and a sense of mystery that expresses the duality of life in Italy from her trademark Naples, where food, religion and appearance are very important and black, the color of mourning and the dead, coexists with wild, colorful and folkloric life, to Lucca in Tuscany “a garden city,” where she lives and works today with her husband and daughters. Beyond this, there’s India, a place that she says “makes me dream, but also keeps my feet on the ground.”

To Isabel Benenato, the presence of black and white is fundamental, both are an expression of the soul. While black represents mystery and sensuality, white projects light and purity, the opposite of darkness. Her design is based on an imperfect perfection that encompasses the human being itself. Music, art and photography are her main sources of inspiration, everything always comes from these key points and that's why, over the years, her collections always seem to have a common thread that makes them very recognizable and indifferent to current trends.
