Having first met in the 1990s thanks to their mutual passion for hats, Antonia de Luca and Elena Todros began their professional partnership by collaborating on a collection for Pitti Uomo in 2010. Two years later, they went on to open their own millinery boutique on a quiet residential street in eastern Milan. The space serves as a laboratory for the duo’s creativity in giving life to unique, handmade hats. The duo collaborates with fashion designers, such as Rome-born Fabio Quaranta and Sergio Colantuoni, and produce ad hoc collections for smaller local boutiques. Loyal customers include Helen Nonini, profiled by Kinfolk in Issue Twenty-Eight.
