La Manufacture - Where the French allure meets the best Italian craftsmanship
LA MANUFACTURE is a brand where design and fashion collide. A brand where a certain
je ne sais quoi of French allure meets the best Italian craftsmanship. A certain idea of French
lifestyle (re)interpreted by world-renowned international designers.
Each collection will highlight world-class craftsmanship, timeless aesthetics and enduring
quality. After years spent dreaming of making this ambitious project a reality, his CEO Robert Acouri
has brought together two great figures from the creative industry, who share his passion and
determination: designer Luca Nichetto, La Manufacture’s Art Director, and fashion consultant Milena

but rather to develop a comprehensive art of living. Timeless creations liberated from trends, but still
informed by the zeitgeist and the specific habits of contemporary urbanites who yearn for both
elegance and practicality.
Lastly, La Manufacture is also a physical location. In this golden age of concept stores, La
Manufacture has opted instead to open a boutique, a place where everyone can feel comfortable. An
opportunity for customers to make new experiences and to live something truly unique. A safe haven
where design and fashion collections are presented and allowed to express themselves in a
comforting setting of pared-down architecture. The appearance of simplicity, concealing a world of
