VinNoir latex it's a young label run solely by Virna Raimondi., art school graduate born in 1989. The label story starts in 2012, when, after a background of work as illustrator and freelance designer for italian alternative fashion brands, Virna decides to join her passion for latex fashion and art into her personal project. After studies in Pisa's tailoring school' Centro Trimoda' Virna starts to craft latex dresses on her own, concentrating in high quality designs with attenction to details. In 2013 VinNoir Latex starts to collaborate with alternative international models and photographers.
Label's name holds Virna's background as illustrator: her first appearence on the web as VinNoir took place on deviantart.com in 2006 were she were known for her pin-up and fetish themed illustrations. The choice to keep this as the label's name is found in Virna's choice to bond with her past experiences; plus, 'black wine' refers to the dionisiac side of life, vital impulse and creativity, with a hint of darkness.
VinNoir Latex takes inspirations from art, especially from Art Deco, Art Nouveau and Asian Art from early '900. Living in Italy it's also a great inspiration, the current laboratory location is Bolgheri, Tuscany, were nature it's just poetic and beautiful.
