The Brand Inspiration
Salvatore believes the brand inspiration for the M. Bottiglieri collection to be manifested perfectly in the existence and presentation of a simple, but powerful creature, the ladybug (la coccinella), whose presence is harmless and soothing to the eye, and who engenders an almost instant emotional warmth, comfort and a feeling of happiness in all of us—men, women and children alike. A ladybug’s life is very short, but very active and energetic. Its colors and unique spots reflect a warm and loving nature and uniqueness. Its hard shell and its ability to regenerate continually and create new life and demonstrate a wonderful sensitivity and powerful resiliency. Because of this, le coccinelle are linked in history to the spiritual energies and ideals of renewal, regeneration and survival, and celebrating the joy of life.
M. Bottiglieri reflects Salvatore’s passion for style, joy and a life well-lived.
A ladybug’s instruction to the world is powerful and clear— our time is short, live life to the fullest, be resilient, let go and enjoy each present moment here on earth. Salvatore has always had a special fondness for ladybugs and lives by that philosophy. M. Bottiglieri reflects his passion for style, joy and a life well lived. M. Bottiglieri garments are designed and crafted for those that believe fashion is built around individuality, natural beauty, and feeling good all day and all evening. “Campa un giorno e campalo bene!” (‘Live for the day and live it well!’)
