FANTINA: HARNESSING THE POWER OF DESIGN June 11, 2020 Jewelry, Videos 59 Elegantly audacious, the Fantina collection of gold jewels takes Pomellato to new frontiers of excellence in design. Stripped back to a refined simplicity, the Fantina strikes a bold stance, full of character and purpose. Fantina will appeal to today’s amazons, those independent women who make their own destiny, untamed by convention, who value style with an original character. Exploring the origins of the Pomellato name, the collection is inspired by the founder Pino Rabolini, the son and grandson of goldsmiths, whose family told when he said he wanted to ride his own destiny: ‘make sure you pick a winning horse.’ Pino Rabolini did some research and discovered that dappled horses were the most majestic, so he chose Pomellato, the Italian for ‘dappled’ as the name for his new venture. Indeed, the House’s first logo was the stamp of a horse’s head. Taking up the theme, Fantina is Italian for a female jockey. And who better to launch the campaign than Princess Matilde Borromeo who so thoroughly embodies the spirit of Fantina? The embodiment of a modern amazon, fiercely independent, she is an accomplished horse rider, horse breeder, entrepreneur and a scion of the most prominent and emblematic Milanese family.
