Born in Carrara, Ugo Cacciatori comes from a dynasty of marble quarry owners and sculptors. After attending Architecture in Florence, he moved to London where he decided to embark on the world of fashion: in the late nineties he presented his first collection in Milan, while he began consulting for important brands: Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Romeo Gigli, Marni, Fendi.He then moved to Lerici, a small fishing village that had already inspired Lord Byron and Percy Bysshi Shelley, became creative director of Santa Croce, a Prada Group brand, and developed a line of jewelry for Diesel Black Gold, dividing his time between Milan and New York before settling in Los Angeles where he has his studio today: a non-random venue, which gave his collections an obvious Californian mood.
