Roberto Faraone Mennella and Amedeo Scognamiglio are the award-winning designer’s behind FARAONE MENNELLA by RFMAS. Inspired by their classical Italian heritage the two New York-based jewelers returned to Italy to opened their first store in Capri today and Women’s Wear Daily highlighted the grand step.
“Capri is the place where everything started,” said Roberto Faraone Mennella. “As Neapolitans, we spent our summers on the island, where our families have their holiday houses.”
“Our heritage is well-grounded in Capri where since childhood we have been influenced by its aesthetics, with bold colors and bejeweled ladies,” added Amedeo Scognamiglio.
Along with the “Signature” and the “Couture” collections, the store will carry a special line called “Viva Capri,” which includes gold rings, charms, bracelets and maxi earrings, in a tribute to the Sixties, Capri’s most glorious decade. This is just the beginning for the two, as they plan to expand to Milan and Brazil! Congrats!
