About the designers: Nina and The Wolf was born from the idea of Gaia and Marta who decided to carefully mix the quirkiness in the designs inspired by our time in the UK and the excellence of the manufactures of our home country – Italy – giving to this fabulous Swiss brand a truly international vibe!
Gaia Sormani (on the right) is the third generation of women in lingerie in her family and she couldn’t be prouder! After graduating at The University of Edinburgh with a MSc in Management and working for several years for some of the best up and coming brands in London and Italy, she decided to move back home and start her life long dream: Nina and The Wolf.
Marta Rovatti (on the left) decided to follow her passion for photography – heritage of a family history – and after a degree in Design, she moved to London to graduate from the MA in Photography at University of Westminster. Alongside her Fine Art practice, she worked with various Fashion photographers. Today she’s working in Milan as a freelance, her pictures have been published on The New York Times, Vogue.it and Grazia and from 2013 her photographs are auctioned by Sotheby’s.
“There is a bit of Nina in each one of us, and we are all a little bit of the Wolf. The most amazing thing you can do is to be, every single morning, your unpredictable self and choose whether you feel more like the dreamy Nina or like the mysterious Wolf.”
A name that sounds like a fairy tale, to narrate the female beauty and complexity and all those facets so typical of a woman: romanticism, elegance and simplicity, but also seduction and, why not… the desire to hunt. Nina and The Wolf seem to be two very different and distant characters, but if you look closer they coexist in the same woman; because after all… Nina is The Wolf!
Our Classic collection is particularly designed to enhance this idea of duality within a woman: a Nina line with lighter colours, soft and romantic materials and sensual yet sophisticated lines, and a Wolf line, with deep cuts and very provocative and alluring lines, transparent and geometric fabrics, where black is the main colour.
At Nina and The Wolf we believe that quality is the secret to create something fabulous. For this reason all of our products are made in Italy: selecting some of the best fabrics and materials, as well as suppliers well renowned for their attention to detail. Because every woman should own great quality lingerie, something that makes her feel sexy and proud, something that boosts her confidence, something that make her feel she can conquer the world!
However, Nina and The Wolf has something more, the products are not just “Made in Italy” but Made in Italy with Love” because not only is there great attention to the production processes, but “we have left a bit of our hearts in each and every garment, making sure its not just something we would definitely buy, but that also reflects our souls and personalities.”
The brand doesn’t want just to create amazing lingerie, it wants to challenge women to break their routine, start experimenting with fashion and to treat lingerie as an accessory, part of their everyday look: “all our pieces are designed to be shown: matched with a pair of jeans or peeking out from your favourite T-shirt… have fun creating new combinations!”
