Marc Monzó, Jeweler

The fascination for all kinds of small objects and an interest in the classical typologies of jewelry have led Marc Monzó to seek the precision of small scale work and the creative play arising from diverse universes and materials.

With a synthetic language, free of superfluous ornamental elements, his work contains a reflection on the process of design and construction of the piece.

Marc Monzó is a fundamental part of MISUI since, as well as being its creative director, he is also one of its main designers and contributes the poetry of essentialist pieces that in turn contain a reflection on the nature of the jewels themselves.

Estela Guitart, Jeweler

Estela Guitart places her creations in the tension between beauty and function, and in the search for balance between the two.

Her pieces are a display of movement and rhythm, always starting out from the variation and repetition of segments of clear and simple shapes. An expert in traditional techniques, such as Japanese lacquer and enamel, applied to jewelry, she incorporates the use of color in a celebration of life, while maintaining the intimate character of the pieces.

MISUI chose to collaborate with Estela Guitart on account of the interest her work shows in movement and her exploration of the contrasts and nuances of colors. The functional character and portability of her pieces invest them a beauty that is fully expressed when worn.

Noon Passama, Jeweler

Noon Passama’s talents cover several areas of design and are expressed in distinct and complementary languages. The balance between these languages, which range from the classical and historical typologies of jewelry to futuristic elements, are reflected in her design solutions.

Out of all this a jewel emerges that is both an object with its own worth and an element that, beyond embellishing, transmits an attitude.

Noon Passama brings the sophistication of her pieces and the richness of her vocabulary to MISUI. Her vision confers a fresh perspective that broadens the brand’s outlook.

Marta Boan, Jeweler

Marta Boan’s interest in the observation of detail and her search for the invisible patterns that make up reality, and that are repeated with small variations, have led her to explore boundaries in order to minimize materiality and simplify forms.

The results are small pieces, with an intimate value, that are an expression of fragility.

MISUI counts Marta Boan among its designers because of the rigor and freshness of her small scale jewelry, in which the symbolic value goes beyond the material value. Here the brand shows its commitment to a collection of minimally material pieces that represent a great technical challenge.

Felix Lindner, Jeweler

Son of a jeweler and educated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich, Felix Lindner has both technical mastery of fine tradition and a deep understanding of contemporary jewelry.

His creations explore the imagery of popular culture, ranging from childhood symbols and toys to contemporary industrial design, combining these diverse points of departure with classical jewelry.

This play of oppositions, carried out with refined technique and intense involvement in every piece often questions the most established values.

Felix Lindner brings to MISUI the new impulse of jewelry coming out of the Munich Academy, with a clear hallmark that conveys popular symbolism through the traditional language
of jewelry.

Norman Vilalta, Shoemaker

Born in Argentina yet based in Barcelona, Norman Vilalta was a late arrival when it came to discovering his true vocation, abandoning his career as a lawyer to travel to Florence, the cradle of art and leader in handcrafted shoes, where he learned the trade under the great masters.

His constant desire for perfection has led him to master each step of the artisan process, but without this constricting in any way his personal expression and style.

Convinced of the aesthetic harmony of classical models, he aims to provide them with his own personal touch without destroying their inherent perfection. In order to do this he has explored different approaches, including asymmetry, deconstruction, the pursuit of the beauty of imperfection or adapting traditional heritage to modern lifestyles and technical possibilities.

Excellently manufactured and with their own personality, each of his creations undoubtedly possesses a part of his spirit: the often invisible to the eye essence that creates true works of art.

Cristina de Prada, Hat Designer

A lover of hats from an early age, Cristina de Prada has been dedicated to creating hats and headwear accessories for many years. The quality and originality of her designs have twice made her a finalist in the prestigious international Hat Designer of the Year competition and an obligatory benchmark in the world of hat production.

After half a century in which the hat had almost fallen into disuse, it has been enjoying a deserved renaissance in recent years at both a street and fashion parade level and Cristina de Prada’s creations are at the forefront of this trend.

Her bold, carefree designs are all about the joy of color and form and are far removed from fashion dictates in order to define the uniqueness of the wearer.

Each year on a spring Sunday she organizes Stroll with a Hat in Barcelona together with Nina Pawlowsky, a well-established popular event that attracts a large number of people wearing all manner of hats.

Nina Pawlowsky, Hat and Costume Designer

With a BA in Set and Costume Design, Nina Pawlowsky discovered the world of hats through her work in the theatre under Fabià Puigserver. Since then she has dedicated herself to both costume design and the art of headwear, which she learned by working alongside important master hatmakers in London and New York.

Hats leaving her workshop can be seen in the streets, on stages or at major social events such as England’s Royal Ascot.

Enamored of her job and with admirably delicate hands that are able to convert static materials into movement, the renaissance of the hat owes her a great deal, an essential accessory of male and female clothing until the late 1930s, it then gradually disappeared until experiencing complete neglect in the 1960s.
