Released this coming September, CORTO MOLTEDO X LUCY FOLK; is the Corto Moltedo collaboration with goldsmith and creative director, Lucy Folk, on their limited edition shopper tote, available exclusively at PLAYA by Lucy Folk, in Sydney, Australia and at www.lucyfolk.com.

Goldsmith by trade, international in taste and delicious by nature, Founder and Creative Director Lucy Folk has made a name for herself with signature interpretations of her favourite things, all led by living an endless summer. Allowing her imagination to go boldly against the grain, handmade jewels, Italian made eyewear, lust worthy accessories and resort inspired apparel create a subtle sense of luxury with timeless wearability.

Having bonded over a mutual love of incessant travel, working with artisan-crafted materials, and a passion for creating products of superior quality that reflect a unique take on art and design, Gabrielecorto and Lucy’s blending of aesthetics is the perfect match.

The collaboration pairs Corto Moltedo’s iconic shopper tote shape and insignia yardage print, framed in a burnt orange 100% goatskin trim, with Folk’s iconic PLAYA logo in signature baby blue, the bag is handmade in Florence and is versatile, elegant and all the time ideal for travelling the world in style.

Founder and Creative Director, Lucy Folk commented: “It’s incredibly exciting to finally launch this wonderful collaborative piece in store. Working with Gabriele was inspiring - his techniques and knowledge on Italian leather is next to none. We were able to share our common love for structural shapes, styles and authenticity whilst combining and adding our own colourful signature stamp, and creative quirk.”

Gabrielecorto Moltedo added, “It was amazing to work on this limited-edition project with an Australian who is now a local Parisian who shares the same appreciation for top quality, ethical and handmade pieces. A shared love for colour and pattern was also identified early on. Adding a reference to Lucy’s home in the creation was the perfect finishing touch.”
