After gaining creative experience in theatrical and fashion production, Ludovica Diligu founded Labo.art in Milan in 2006 and started producing her first, though limited, fashion collections. Hailing from a family of architects, Ludovica was brought up in an atmosphere of research into lines, volumes, and geometry, styles that form the basis of her highly qualified profession. This is the reason why her creations are more like wearable architecture. Moving to Berlin the undisputed center of the latest European artistic trends whilst remaining a staunch supporter of “made in Italy” production, has been the winning formula at the base of Ludovica’s success. Labo.art is synonymous with sober and minimal elegance.
The company’s hallmark is an attentive study of volumes and their role in space expressed through the architectural design of the single piece of clothing. The key words are constant research. This process regards colors in all their hues, focusing on the reinterpretation of cotton, wool, and linen in essential and modern shapes. The collection’s main concept draws from the combination of top-quality materials with clean design and is inspired by the focal, historical moments of fashion, theater, and cinema. The perfect balance of taste and class creates a unique and easily recognizable style. The creative headquarters are in Berlin, the European center of contemporary cultural experimentation, in an old liqueur factory right in the throbbing heart of the gallery district. Labo.art’s production is of the highest “Made in Italy” standards. Its flagship store is in Milan, where the company was founded.
