In case you’re just joining us, this is Part Three of our four-part series to get to know the elements that make up Iter Itineris. We’ve touched on the fabric and the design - now we’ll reveal the ideals behind the finishing touches. For Designer, Marco Vedovato, the finishing touches on all collections are a considered process. So, let’s tell you about them here.
It is good to first understand that we adopt a limited production process - it is the only way the integrity of each piece is maintained. Anything that is less than perfect will not make it to the rack - you could describe the process as ‘obsessively passionate for perfection’.
There is a massive focus on research, uniqueness and quality. As Iter Itineris continues to grow, there’s been a return ‘home’ to Italy in its FW15 collection - but not without picking up valuable nuggets of knowledge along the way. Every single element, from the luxurious silk threads, real horn buttons to the cotton shirt grade lining, and the special washed fabrics are all sourced, designed and hand-picked by the designer - no detail left unturned, or unsourced.
With finishing touches - the designer thinks about what materials are most authentic to the garment, which pieces will complement and make it truly original. The story behind each button, thread and lining, goes beyond the production actually. When combined, it’s an ode of respect to those artisans around the world who unapologetically create and craft materials that are made to last and be admired.
