LEDA OTTO INTERVIEW
LedaOtto, founded in 2010, was conceived from the creativity of two young and innovative designers, Simona Cassai and Marta Saletti: Leda and Otto are the first names of their respective grandparents. Tuscan by birth, they each pursued interdisciplinary studies, from Economics at Università degli Studi Di Firenze in to Graphic Design at the European Institute of Design in Milan, and also gained formidable experience in fashion and jewellery design. After meeting, the fusion between the sensitive Otto and the determined Leda gave birth to a strong friendship and partnership that has been cultivated by a reciprocal exchange of ideas and creativity. Indefatigable travellers and passionate about global popular culture, they are always “in the know” about the latest fashion, art and design trends. LedaOtto’s first jewellery collection is characterized by unique and exclusive design and is certified Made in Italy.
Art and architecture in all its facets
Tamara de Lempicka, Daphne Guinness, Taylor Tomasi Hill
We are in love with the Ancient theatre of Taormina. It represents Made in Italy and one of the best holidays we have done.
How do you stay in the know?
Reading books, magazines, traveling and spending time doing research on the internet.
Do you have a certain person in mind when you create your collections?
There is not a specific person but we imagine a woman with strong personality who loves to be original and unique
Anything else? We hope people will understand the passion and the quality that we bring to each of our pieces.
