Although Taller Marmo is based in Dubai, it anchors its creative output firmly in Italian soil. The brainchild of design duo Riccardo Audisio and Yago Goicoechea, it is a modern tribute to the authentic craftsmanship and outstanding quality associated with all things Italy. That being said, Audisio and Goicoechea’s work also reflects Arabic traditions, making their collections a truly unique exercise in cross-cultural design. In this feature, Savoir Flair brings you an exclusive glimpse into the lives of the young designers as they jet from Dubai to Milan to the Italian countryside to prepare their Resort 2016 samples and shoot their new lookbook, all seen from their iPhone cameras.
