Svetlana Taccori is the creative mind behind the exclusive knitwear brand, Tak.Ori Italy. Following 15 years working in the luxury fashion industry it was a natural progression for Svetlana to start her own line and with a penchant for collecting hats and scarves everywhere she went these pieces became the starting point for her fashion label.
Made in Italy and often handmade, Svetlana has set her sights on revolutionising the fashion knitwear scene. By creating pieces which lend themselves well to any style of clothing, using beautifully crafted cashmere, extra virgin wool and mohair, her mission is bearing fruit as her unique and eye-catching designs with their ageless style and appeal are must haves for A-List Movie stars and Fashion "It" Girls alike Svetlana's collections have generated great press recognition and gained her some of the most prestigious stockists in the world including Browns in London, Colette in Paris and online luxury portal, Net-A-Porter. Most recently the label was nominated as one of 9 finalists in the womenswear category of Vogue Italy's "Who Is On Next? Award"
On the back of her international success, Svetlana has branched out and designs a total-look collection each season. Milan is home, but the influence of her Eastern European background is ever present in the use of bright colours and eclectic prints, all underpinned by a classic Italian elegance. Tak.Ori Italy appeals to the modern, fashion-forward woman who does not want to sacrifice comfort for style. As the designer herself says "The type of hat a woman chooses to wear is often the reflection of her personality."
