• OUR STORY •

PHILOSOPHY • WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

Combining a fusion of meticulous geometric sillhouettes influenced by architecture and sculptural forms with thoughtful design and artisan craftmanship, Maestoso creates long-lasting investment pieces that are at once distinctive and timeless.

Our collections embrace a less-but-better philosophy with the brand’s signature code of sculptural minimalism and pursue a subtle approach to luxury to create contemporary designs that can almost pass for works of art.

Maestoso speaks to a classic movement that vibrates continuously, without ever being limited or controlled by seasons. It embraces a way of life that cherises quality and oposses mass-consumption.

Defined by timelessness with an architectural edge. These are the building blocks that strengthen the foundation of your wardrobe with pieces to be loved now and treasured for years to come.

 

 

 

 

 

THE CREATOR • HOW THE IDEAS ARE BORN

I grew up with an instinctive appreciation of visual stimuli thanks to my parents love of design and craftmanship. Ever since I first thought of what I wanted to do in the future, I knew for sure that architecture will be my guidance. So I decided to follow 6 years of the University of Architecture and Urbanism in Bucharest, which formed and shaped my vision about design and arts.

I was always passionate about fashion and small design, because for an architect, imagination quickly becomes a creative tool and non-conformism, and the idea of me referring to the proportions of the human body attracted me a lot. I liked designing at small scale, whether it was about furniture, lighting, jewelry or clothes.

So, after finishing my degree in architecture in 2015, I decided to go on an entrepreneurial path, and create Maestoso • a brand with a minimalist sophistication approach.

I imagined it as a fusion of sharp lines inspired from architecture, and the timeless elegance of the minimalist style, formulating a fresh and forward-looking interpretation of luxury, where each design is defined by signature metal handles, produced with integrity and commited to our ethical conduct.

With love, 

Claudia

THE PROCESS • SLOWING FASHION DOWN

What an incredibly elaborate and intricate process is to create a bag, a small piece of art. Maestoso bags are small-scale masterpieces, born from the creative spirit of our designer and manufactured by highly skilled artisans with experience of three generations in the leather goods, using age-old techniques.

In our quest to create fine handmade accessories we never compromise on quality. Our materials are sourced from the best suppliers in Italy and every production step is proudly made in the EU. That way we can ensure our partners have fair working conditions, a safe working environment and ethical production practices in compliance with environmental legislation.

We believe in craftsmanship and manufacturing in Europe where the techniques of producing luxury leather goods are deeply rooted. We believe in minimizing waste and curb over-production, by manufacturing our products in limited quantities, we can react better to what you like and ensure we don’t have excess stock left over.

In a world where fast fashion and cheap production is the norm, we want to treasure and support the artisanal processes that we believe luxury should stand for.
