Nicola Bacchilega’s ‘DEFAIENCE’ stems from the union between the creative directors hometown, Faenza, and the English word “DEFIANCE” implying a challenge, provocation & a strenuous research of freedom of expression.

The goal of the brand is to create fluid and hybrid paradigms between fashion and sculpture, using sustainable materials and a unique know-how from the artisans of Faenza.

The brands core is sustainability, carried out by choosing recycled materials and a cross-seasonal made to order approach, allowing the brand to avoid surplus production. Innovation is another major focus of the brand, using 3D technology to turn sculptures into accessories.
