The first release of designs is inspired by the tones, colors and textures of Puglia, Italy. White washed villages, crystal blue seas, the warm glow that fell over the hilltop towns during golden hour. The way the contemporary styles of those that have begun reinvigorating the area have created an intriguing contrast to the rugged, unspoiled landscape. I absolutely fell in love with the culture centered around being together, the warm nature of the locals, a cuisine made from simple ingredients that speak for themselves, and jaw-dropping landscape. My love for this beautiful country runs deep and Puglia is such a magical corner of it. Of the places I've traveled, this one has stuck with me and represents the feeling that I keep coming back to with the launch of Maragold.
