Aldo Lopez might be considered the ultimate dreamer. Last year, Lopez decided to abandon his career as a high-profile lawyer and launch a luxury accessories line called Mos Milano for spring 2009, comprising jewelry, handbags and eyewear. Handmade in Italy by carefully selected artisans, the collection’s leitmotif is the infinity sign, discreetly embellishing the arms of the glasses and adorning diamond earrings.

The economy tanked in the months after the launch, and Lopez is fully aware that “it was a bad moment and 2009 is even worse.” But he continues to see an opportunity in the development of his concept. “Retailers want to experiment because they need to create interest and stimulate their customers. With us, they are freed from minimum purchases, versus constraining limits often imposed by big designer brands,” says Lopez, who remains confident in long-term results. “I know it’s going to be a very long process to establish our identity — and it may take up to 10 years — but I want this to become a small luxury maison, known for its true craftsmanship and classic-yet-contemporary accessories made by the best artisans in the sector.”
