L’isola Amotea’s SS22 resort collection “L’isola” - The Island - is inspired by the well-being and intimacy that make Italian islands special: Sicily and in particular the island of Lampedusa, a bridge in the heart of the Mediterranean: a land pervaded by authentic uniqueness, between dreamy landscapes and waters, animal and plant species unknown elsewhere, sunsets that have few equals for their intensity. These landscapes and the cultural depth of the Mediterranean imaginary can be seen reflected in the colours and prints designed ad hoc by illustrator Carlotta Varrenti, developed on natural fabrics such as linen and cotton gauze. In the collection there is an air of summer and happiness, transferred to multi-coloured linens, made exclusively on Italian looms by the designer, evoking the charming dawns on the island, a metaphor for rebirth. The leopards, the banana trees and the sterlizia flowers embroidered on the clothes, on the other hand, are inspired by the place that hosted the shooting of the “Il Gattopardo di Lampedusa” campaign, a historic resort, symbol par excellence of the good hospitality of the island, in an harmonious relationship with the surrounding environment.

Evangelie Smyrniotaki X Amotea
Intense, confident and modernly elegant, the woman who inspired the Evangelie Smyrniotaki x Amotea capsule collection has a purposeful way of creating her own body conscious looks.
She pairs tomboy-like wardrobe essentials with second skin knitwear pieces that revive the iconic minimalism of the '90s.
The capsule consists of a shirt and short combo crafted in GOTS cotton poplin and three knitwear pieces that treat sustainable viscose in a contemporary process to create wrap-around garments, all of which are declined in a statement black and white combination, Evangelie Smyrniotaki's signature shade.
The design is curated by the talented style icon in collaboration with Diletta Amodei.
In line with Amotea's principles, the entire Evangelie Smyrniotaki x Amotea collection is made using only sustainable materials, with a refined supply chain and careful craftsmanship.
