Up-and-coming designer Caterina Gatta reinterprets the iconic Lancetti dress. The storied house's famed shapes, colors and patterns have been intelligently updated.

The result is six, highly covetable, collectable pieces, on display at the Mercati di Traiano in Rome and available exclusively on yoox.com
For its latest talent scouting project, yoox.com has once again joined forces with Altaroma, presenting LANCETTI/ RE-EDITION by Caterina Gatta. Melding the past and the future, Lancetti/ Re-Edition pays homage to a legendary fashion house, while breathing new life into its iconic designs.

Founded in Rome by Pino Lancetti in 1961, Lancetti was one of the first designers to be inspired by the figurative arts, garnering him the nickname "painter designer."
Twenty eight year-old Caterina Gatta was born in Rome. Her clothing is fashioned using vintage fabrics by Versace, Fausto Sarli, Pierre Cardin, Givenchy, Valentino, and, now, Lancetti. The extraordinary prints that catapulted Pino Lancetti to fame have kindled the young protégé's creative spark. The result is six dresses, an ankle boot and a scarf--each piece eminently covetable and collectable.
LANCETTI/ RE-EDITION will be displayed at the Mercati di Traiano in Rome and can be purchased straight from the exhibition exclusively though yoox.com.
An international stage, a special bridge between tradition and innovation--Altaroma is, simply put, the hub of Italian haute couture and a passionate advocate of new fashion talent
