Italian designer Stefano De Lellis grew up surrounded by artists, from his woodcarving father to his sculptor uncle. He studied art at the Art Institute of Florence and created a range of avant-garde jewellery which was immediately spotted by LuisaViaRoma. Soon, he turned his creative energies to fashion design. Stefano De Lellis's signature is luxuriously feminine and sexy with a cool, urban edge. Many of his beautifully crafted standout designs are embellished with metal and jewellery, in tribute to his first love.
