The O bag Venice store showcases the Moretti family’s art of glass and silk
From 4 to 31 October 2019, the O bag store in San Geremia, Venice, in collaboration with Venezia da Vivere, will host an exclusive collection of Andrea Moretti silk scarves from the «Vita di Vetro» project created by his daughters Giovanna, Carlotta and Orsola Moretti.
The aim of project is to commemorate the craftsmanship of Vincenzo Moretti, the memorable glass artist who created unique combinations of designs and colours destined to decorate bowls, vases and exquisite objects. It was precisely from unique murrina pieces that the Moretti sisters drew inspiration for transferring the colours, transparency and fine imperfections of the glass to a new, precious material – silk.
So originated a unique collection of exquisite artistic scarves which O bag is proud to display in its Venice store, one of the most representative in Italy. A special installation creates a strong link between the concept of glass and silk craftsmanship and the world of more contemporary design that is the signature of the modular bags brand.
The exhibition will open with a presentation event on 4 October at 6.00pm
From 17 to 26 October, the Venice O bag store will also be taking part in Venice Fashion Week, the event that puts the spotlight on the network of creatives, designers and companies from the city and around the region who promote artisanal, sartorial sustainable fashion.
