Paolo's work appeared alongside the fashions of Antonio Marras, Alessandero dell’Aqua, Kenzo, Missoni, Romeo Gigli and Fiorccui. After Giacomelli and Paolucci unified their artistic vision, the brand has consistently turned out two collections per year: Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer.
With the exception of a life-sized King Kong statue that serves as the boutique's central fixture, the store’s minimalist decor and neutral palette is designed to show off the label’s trademark statement pieces and colorful contemporary jewelry.

The delicate line is inspired by traditional Italian jewelry and is crafted with precious metals and stones.
