The collection designed by Mario Dice for the Campania leather goods brand Osci Lab was presented yesterday evening. Mario managed to use leather as if it were fabric. The Osci Lab brand is a creative project created by the BALMA leather goods company which is part of the Sonofra tanning district, better known as "The City of Leather", one of the places of excellence in our country.
Mario Dice is an Italian brand founded in 2007 by the designer of the same name. Born in Montesarchio, he entered the world of fashion at a very young age. He was only 14 years old when the production manager Calvin Klein saw his work and offered him to work in New York. Mario Dice remained in the Big Apple for six years, working first at Calvin Klein and then at Donna Karan. Then came the opportunity to return to Italy. First Rome, where the designer works in the Sorelle Fontana atelier and since 1999 in the Gattinoni Atelier, where he has the opportunity to nourish his couturier soul. Then Milan, where he collected experiences working for the biggest names in Made in Italy: Dolce & Gabbana, Philosophy and then landed at Trussardi, where he remained for seven years. In 2020 the brand presents its new financial structure: the designer and founder holds 51% of the company, 30% is in the hands of two investors, while the remaining 19% is held by the owner of Mecatex Tessuti, Luca Stefano Romoli .
