A respected name in knitwear for two decades, Cruciani has now turned its hand to accessories, using its extensive knowledge to produce needlepoint bracelets coveted by everyone from celebrities to fashion editors. Launched with a four-leaf clover design, the collection has expanded to include an array of attractive and colourful pieces featuring butterflies, flowers and, for 2012, dragons to mark the Chinese year of the dragon.
Catching our eye in particular this season is the Ponte Milvio set: twin bracelets, one taking the form of a padlock, the other a key. Available in a rainbow of colours, the set represents love, devotion and fidelity.
