Objects of Desire: January 2021 – DEPARTURES

Knitwear from Brunello Cucinelli, René Caovilla boots, a limited-edition Penuts Smeg refrigerator and so much more on our radar this month.




Founded by the Italian Count Giberto Arrivabene Valenti Gonzaga, Giberto Venezia’s exclusive range of exquisite Murano glass objects are inspired by the most theatrical city in the world – Venice – and the Palazzo Papadopoli rooms where the Count spent his childhood. The latest addition to this wider range of sophisticated accessories is the Coccodrillo Frame, crafted from animal-print cotton velvet from the Venetian weaving workshop Tessitura Luigi Bevilacqua and enclosed by a hand-blown Murano glass cane.
