Botticelli's Birth of Venus inspires a new pure wool jacket by Tollío

The Birth of Venus is a painting by the Italian artist Sandro Botticelli, probably made in the mid 1480s. It depicts the goddess Venus arriving at the shore after her birth, when she had emerged from the sea fully-grown. The painting can be seen in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.

The designer took inspiration from this famous painting to make a wonderful new jacket made by a pure wool crépe fabric, woven in the renowned Italy's Biella district, with its wool mills dating back to the 13th century. It is handmade by talented and skilled Italian couturiers that we carefully select in the North of Italy: they share our same love for beauty and passion for art. The jacket is entirely embroidered with pink silk yarn and can be worn in formal or unformal occasions, either with skirts, pants or blue-jeans.

The new jacket is part of Birth of a Dream, the new collection recently announced by the Italian Brand.
