Cosimo Vinci and his Black Lord accessory collection

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I met jewellery and accessory designer Cosimo Vinci last week in Milan at the exhibition Gioielli Alla Moda.  As a child he loved to portray the people that fascinated him and because of that he was called “the caricaturist”. Nine years ago at the age of 26, he founded Cosimo Vinci Design Sas.  Before launching his own brand (pictured above),  he collaborated with: Versace, Versus,  Balmain, Valentino, etc. The  Peter Pan of accessories holds tight to his vision of seeing life through the eyes of a child.

Above are the handbags from his debut collection however there is  also  a jewellery collection which pays homage to French and Italian fashion icons.
