In Maria Sapio’s designs, geometric rigour and organic softness coexist in harmony, making the extreme complexity of the atelier linear and simple. The textures tell elegant and contemporary tales for women who have “the same strong and fragile spirit as flowers growing on rocks”. Each garment is a true work of art, created with new-generation sustainable yarns and through a complex production process that combines hand-knitted and crocheted knitwear with knits made with electronic machines. Wearing Maria Sapio’s creations means entering the world of knitwear with dreamy eyes, to be able to catch a glimpse of its magic and mystery.

CONCEPT

Knitwear is an expression of art. It is a limitless universe. During the process of knitting a garment, we bear witness to the incredible metamorphosis of raw material into enchanted, dreamlike weavings. In the planning stages of Maria Sapio’s collections, the dialogue between material and its treatment is central to the birth of each garment. Each creation is a precious, unique piece of high fashion, whose production connects tradition with innovative techniques. The raw materials are completely sustainable and obtained without harming animals. The work process follows rules in which experience, knowledge of materials and know-how are key. The production of each garment is the result of targeted work aimed at achieving a specific goal: the creation of a unique piece of knitwear. Each technique reflects a passion for details and every weaving is the result of a long journey that begins with a vision, moves forward to the planning stages and careful study of materials, and finally ends with construction, which is entirely handmade. Each garment tells a unique story, as unique as the woman who will wear it. The weavings of Maria Sapio’s garments tell of elegant and contemporary fairy tales, for women who have the same fragile yet strong spirit as the flowers that grow amid stones. Tenacious soul explorers who never stop discovering themselves and who never stop at the surface of things. Wearing the creations of Maria Sapio is like entering a world of enchantment. It is an invitation to look upon the world with dreamy eyes as a way to glimpse its magic and mystery.
