Q&A with Isaia Representative Brian Cook

September 1, 2015

Q: What inspired the ISAIA FW 2015/16 collection?  

A: Within the FW 2015/16 collection, which was inspired by the frescoes and mosaics of Pompeii, ISAIA presents:  “Eros in Pompeii”.  Pompeii is widely renowned for its extraordinary frescoes and exquisite mosaics , that adorn the insides of the stately villas. ISAIA Napoli has found an amazing source of inspiration in the beautiful textures and remarkable hues of these mosaics that now inform FW 2015 collection. Each tile of these mosaics is a brilliant example of color, design and form on its own, however, in unison they create something compellingly stunning.

Dark hues are on the horizon.

July 17, 2013

This coming Fall season, Isaia is digging deep into the beautiful aged murals of San Gennaro chapel in Naples, named after it’s patron saint. Rich frescos of Pompeii depicting the impending doom of Mt. Vesuvius were used to compose color combinations of okra, rust, and burnt red, on backdrops of deep grays, blues, and brown. 

Boxes are piling up in the back so stay tuned for our big Fall 13 roll out!

Men’s Market

July 14, 2013

The temperature on the dash says 89 and its not even noon. The scalding stuffiness is seeping up through the vents covering the New York City metro system. Not even the slightest Atlantic breeze can penetrate the labyrinth of skyscrapers to offer a cooling break from the July sun.

Yup, it’s market week! The men’s team is heading for Metropolis starting this Friday! Just to get you a little inspired here are some pics from Pitti Milan of some of our vendors!

Why the red coral?

October 10, 2012

This past weekend we had our Isaia trunk show, during which one of the more frequent questions happened to be about the Napoli-based company’s choice on logo-ing. After a glass of red wine and a little dissertation by the brand’s specialist we came to the following explanation:

In Greek mythology, after defeating Medusa, the hero Perseus used her head to petrify Cetus, the sea monster who was threatening his love interest Andromeda. According to local lore, he rested on the banks of the sea at Napoli. There he set the Gorgons head down to wash his hands. When he was ready to depart he noticed that her blood had turned all the sea life red. Even to this day, some Romans still believe that coral can cure wounds made by snakes and scorpions, protect their children from harm, and diagnose diseases by changing different colors.
