"The kitchen of Ada is a fountain of ideas, colors and joy: dishcloths striped or plaid, vegetables, colorful aprons. All these ingredients helped me compose the new collection. Not to mention, of course, recipes, aromatic and delicious, blending cultures and flavors, "says Ledda.

During the process of creation, Colomba sliced ​​onions, carrots, lemons, cauliflower and peppers. "I put on each ingredient dish cloths or linen and photographed everything," he says. The next step was to work the images digitally. "From the kitchen, I created an entire line to the wardrobe next summer!" Colomba liked the "joke" that have produced cushions and curtains for your home collection. The creations are for sale in his studio, opened in 1996 in Milan Some of the pieces are unique. Outside, the brand is present in the Egg and Few and Far, in London, Noodles, Los Angeles, and Takashimaya in Tokyo.
