After taking Italy by storm since September 2011 with more than 7 million pieces sold in a little over a year, Cruciani macramé lace bracelets are now available in Singapore, after Tokyo and Seoul.
The tiny jewels of Italian craftsmanship were born in the mind of Luca Caprai, son of Cruciani’s founder, Arnaldo Caprai in summer 2011. The original good luck charm four-leaf clover design saw endless queues for 60 days in a row outside the Cruciani boutique in Forte dei Marmi, Italy, with people eager to get their hands on the lace bracelets in one or more of the many colors available.
Since then, they have been associated with charity causes like the “Cruciani x 3/11” bracelet, specially created in support of Fukushima, which helped raised ten million yen for the Japanese government to purchase a fishing boat, a practical asset helping the local population to regain primary sustenance.
Limited editions have also been designed for the Vogue Fashion Night Out event in Florence, in collaboration with Pitti Immagine this September.
In addition, Cruciani has been working closely with artists such as Marco Bertin who included the four-leaf clover designs in two of his works of art. The latest collaboration with photographer Giovanni Gastel was launched during Milan Fashion Week in September 2012 with 17 ironic and iconic pictures featuring the bracelets.
Many international celebrities have been seen wearing the bracelets, from Dita Von Teese and Paris Hilton, to Bar Rafaeli, Nicole Murphy and Michelle Rodriguez.
