Sergio Colantuoni likes to stay busy. With his tall, slim build, big beard and rounded glasses, he’s a well-known figure on the Milanese creative scene who’s involved in a range of activities, from serving as creative director of luxury tailoring brand Caruso for the last three years to styling food and beauty still-life shots for the Italian weekly magazine Io Donna to developing creative projects for brands, decorating private houses and conceiving setups for trade shows and events.

Colantuoni has also created his own brand of belts, called “Spirituality Belt.” The unisex leather design is decorated with brass images of five religious figures and symbols, including Saint Januarius, the monstrance, Buddha, Ganesh and the Hand of Fatima.
“We all need to get closer to our spiritual dimension and find a more unique and personal approach,” Colantuoni said. The Spirituality Belt, which comes in a special recycled package, is on sale at Milan’s high-end store Wait & See for 150 euros, or $169 at current exchange.
