“My dream was to transform gold, the most noble and rigid metal, into a soft and delicate texture to feel in the hands as never before.” –Mi Piaci’s creative director Gianpaolo Girardello.
GOLD IS TRENDING FOR FALL 2012 & BEYOND!
GOLD INFUSED FUR? GOLD INFUSED LEATHER? AM I DREAMING? Well, no I’m not but I think this is one of the most innovative ideas to hit the fashion scene in a while! I am a lover of furs, leathers and golds, so for me the idea of being able to wear it all at once, (and not individually accessories with jewelry) is like taking a little trip to fashion heaven!
So I’m guessing you’re wondering how this all works, huh? According to the Venician brand Mi Piaci; there is no plating or coating of 24kt gold done on any of the products. You see, they invented an innovative top secret patented technology called “Precious Surface” that infused pure 24kt gold into leather, silk, and fur. Almost like a die process of sorts. The process starts with pure gold slabs, the atoms from the gold blend into the surface of the materials leaving the texture and hand of the fur, silk, and leather feeling as though it was untouched – leaving us with creations of pure solid gold that can move, flex, drape, and be worn!
