Francesco Ferrari and Tomaso Anfossi, both born in the mid 80’s, are up-coming designers who create succinct, comfortable, graphical and cute items. They place a high value on playful fabrics unlike ordinary designers. For example, they make pictures they took into an original fabric. This unique method can only be practiced by open-minded contemporary brands like CO|TE. They are targeting energetic women who lively enjoy their life and trying to create a whole new avant-garde world by their fresh and talented sense.
CO|TE is an emerging Italian brand founded by Tomaso Anfossi and Francesco Ferrari, who both studied at the prestigious Istituto Marangoni in Milan. Tomaso and Francesco met during some important collaborations, and their friendship became the basis for the CO|TE brand. They presented their collections in Milan and Paris, and in September 2010 they were featured in Vogue Talents’ list of 160 emerging designers. In 2011 they had the opportunity to present their collection on Who is On Next?, a contest organized by Vogue Italia and AltaRoma. They are gaining momentum by creating geometric shapes and overlaying colors that match women’s silhouette and esprit.
