Fluid, exquisite, ancestral. Siblings Nicolò and Carlotta Oddi have chosen, or maybe have been chosen by one single garment to express their idea of a cosmopolitan, creative way of living: the cardigan, a timeless piece, a travel companion. Alanui is a haven of emotions, intimate memories, geographies and eras, of urban subcultures and folklore. Its name in Hawaiian means road, path. It suggests an archetype and a journey. In every culture, variations on a theme is a recurring figure, in art and craftsmanship.
