Founded in September 2021 by Nicola Bacchilega, DEFAÏENCE represents a fusion of ceramic art and haute couture. The brand name, a combination of "faience" (ceramic) and "defiance" (challenge), reflects Nicola's ethos of challenging convention. The brand's collections evoke the sinuosity found in ceramics, and the pieces are wearable sculptures that transcend traditional fashion boundaries. Inspired by the revolutionary spirit of the late 1960s, DEFAÏENCE is more than a fashion label; it's a declaration against outdated stereotypes and a catalyst for positive change. The brand's sustainability is intrinsic, setting new industry standards by harmonising tradition with innovation.
