Moreover, Carlo Traglio, President of Vhernier stated in an exclusive interview with Stream Magazine, that his ideal client is what he described as a “sincere woman”, a woman who knows where she is heading and knows how to get there, who is economically independent, who pleases herself and not others. A woman who is cultured but not necessarily very wealthy, a woman who wants to stand out from the crowd. Traglio stated that fashion is not a reference point, a mix of various elements go in the making. He explained that if he had a large table cover with some fabrics, some pieces of furniture, some blocks, a leaf and a flower , with the effect of a vortex all of these elements become mixed to give life to a piece of jewellery. There has to be a real moment of inspiration, otherwise the jewels don’t come to life.
On the other hand, Traglio stated that the unique custom made pieces, specifically for a particular person are created looking at that person’s personality, how they look and move, as well as the shape of their face and hands. He thinks of an object that has to become part of that person. The fact that they are wearing that piece of jewellery has to make them so happy that they can’t live without it.
Tragilo stated, “I feel that what keeps us going today is our passions. The passions that come to us in the first years of our lives. This is how I have lived my life, I have always been sustained by my driving passions. My first and greatest passion was for jewellery: I designed. my first piece when I was ten and I have never lost this passion. My second passion is for art. These passions have accompanied me for my whole life.”
