CORTI - a designer accessories project, ambitious yet with solid foundations - showcases its collection of handbags and scarves, entirely made in Italy.
The brand is led by two young designers: Alessandro Corti and Yusun Jang.
ALESSANDRO obtained a Bachelor Degree in Architecture and a Master Degree in Engineering from Politecnico di Milano. After acquiring a relevant experience working for several years at a renowned Milan-based architecture firm, he started his own firm and construction company.
YUSUN graduated in textile designing in Seoul. Soon after, fascinated by the world of fashion and design, she moved to Italy and studied at Istituto Marangoni in Milan, where she completed a fashion accessories postgraduate course. She was awarded the “wave design information” prize for best design/coordination at the "62 expo riva schuh” (a window into the future) contest, and then started to collaborate for over 10 years with some of the most prestigious international fashion brands, including John Richmond, MCM Worldwide and Etro.
CORTI, established in 2013, is a luxury brand - both contemporary and classic, glamour and playful, inspired by the diverse cultural influences that the two designers continue exploring during their adventurous travelling - their common, biggest passion.
In September 2014 VOGUE ITALIA included Corti in the list of the 200 emerging talents.
