Creative couple Gabriella and Dean would like to welcome you to the concept of “io e te”
io e te translates to me and you, the brand is inspired by their shared passion for travel, culture and mutual visual aesthetic. Endlessly influenced by Gabriella’s southern Italian heritage, where love, family and food are everything. The brand is inspired by Tropea; the beautiful, ancient town where Gabriella’s family were born and raised. Sun spilling through the narrow crumbled streets, the relaxed way of life paired with the strong minded Calabrese mentality.
Gabriella and Dean took inspiration for this collection through the beautiful beaches of Tropea. Dean captured an image of the frothy sea hitting the sands which has been the focal point of the collection. This wave is prominent throughout the creative process, the colour palette, tones, textures and design. The Mare Knitted Jumper is an exact design match of the image captured.
Each product has been designed and hand crafted with sustainability at the forefront of our mind, eco friendly fabrics, labels and packaging have all been carefully considered. We are very excited and proud of the collection.
