daniella caputi weaves generations of talent into minimalist masterpieces
The phrase ‘less is more’ is wildly popular because of its truth, particularly when it comes to the world of fashion. What is still seen as a vastly fast industry churning out trend-based pieces is starting to slow down, as the next generation of makers steps up to create change not only aesthetically but socially. Daniella Caputi is one such individual, dedicated to crafting minimalist garments made with expert care. Her eponymous label personifies this new wave – it’s all about quality over quantity.
Following women who came before her in previous generations, Daniella fell in love with the craft of sewing and all things handmade. After graduating university with a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Fashion and Textiles, she was compelled to start her own label that imbued her values – local and ethical manufacturing mixed with simple and beautiful design. Her work is inspired by a combination of architecture, minimalism and nature, with these key areas informing an output of truly versatile pieces.
The daniella caputi label values high quality artistry above all else, and as such is an ethical and sustainable model. Every facet of the brand is overseen from its studio in Perth, from the sourcing and designing to the pattern making and sewing. The trans-seasonal pieces created in-house are all designed with longevity in mind, favouring classic silhouettes and timeless fabrics with some flourish to add a sense of edge. From embroidered dresses through to fringed kimonos, the brand stocks limited-run pieces that will go the distance in your wardrobe while still standing alone as statement items.
