Designer: Genevieve Xhaet
Created in 2013 by Genevieve Xhaet, FLAPPER is a women’s accessories brand that fuses tailored elegance with contemporary taste maintaining a versatile and refined equilibrium between form and wearability.
It is a project that the Italian-Belgian designer - a lover of culture and art in all of their many expressions - began developing in her native city of Biella, the birthplace of the most prized Italian textiles, where from her youth she studied the processes and techniques that are the foundation of her pieces.
FLAPPER takes its inspiration from the image and allure of the protagonists of the iconic 1920s: a roaring epoch, vibrant with change and social revolution, marked by the first steps toward women’s liberation and emancipation, and thus synonymous with a free, independent, progressive and anticonformist spirit.
An inspired and captivating line, composed of turbans, wraps, cloche, headbands, and hats, striking a balance between past and present, between innovation and tradition, between affect and function.
