Two brands that may seem to have little in common, yet both are characterized by an ability to produce real icons, as well as a focus on products that are 100% Italian from concept to production. Mantero in Como, where talented creatives, artisans and technicians work together on drawing, finishing, printing and hemming. Octopus in its Varese plant, where prototypes come to life and most of the production takes place, and its new headquarters in Milan where the garments are designed and developed.

That's what made it so easy to combine the two worlds, much like a free-flowing conversation: the Mantero artists drew four illustrations by hand – two in black&white and two colored with watercolors – that blend the Octopus tentacles with classic nature-inspired motifs taken from the incredible Mantero archive, one of the jewels in the company’s crown. Octopus then used the Mantero illustrations and printing techniques to create luxury versions of its classic hoodie and T-shirt styles including silk scarves, T-shirts, hoodies, a Harrington jacket, chinos, and a double-sided silk shirt. The silk garments are printed on both sides using special state-of-the-art printers to obtain a unique effect.
