When designers Marco Baldassari and Paolo Zuntini founded their label Eleventy in 2007, they had a clear mission: to combine fair fashion with craftsmanship and Italian elegance. The combination of their powerful sustainable message and sophisticated modern style found immediate favour. Today, Eleventy has offices in Milan and New York, 19 monobrand boutiques in cities across North America, Europe and Asia and a network of over 500 multibrand outlets around the world. Expect a nuanced colour palette, simple silhouettes, luxurious finishes and light, natural fabrics. Sometimes sporty, sometimes dressy, but always stylish. What's more, each piece is manufactured in Italy by dozens of micro-enterprises, each specialising in a particular part of the production.
