The brand’s core philosophy of designing for the modern woman is organized around the principles of dance, the discipline and rigor of this art form, an understated elegance matched by intelligent design and precise construction.
MICOLI prides itself on being for a woman appreciates practical yet elegant shapes, sensual materials and a dynamic sense of order and simplicity that dialogues with her body and demanding lifestyle.
Having been a dancer for the greater part of my life, I was inspired to create bags that considered how to facilitate movement, grace and elegance, through functional design.
Ultimately, finding that Movement was my enduring Muse for Micoli.
