Many hundreds of people (not to say thousands) pass through Via de’ Calzaiuoli every day. None of them can help but look at one of its most colorful and original windows, which break the monotony of trattorias, souvenir shops and clothing. We are talking about Pylones, a French designer brand that, for over thirty years, has been producing its original creations all over the world.
Pylones, whose first boutique opened in Paris in the late ’80s, takes inspiration from popular art and creates, in collaboration with numerous French designers, everyday objects from curious silhouettes, covering notebooks, magnifying glasses, watches, combs or umbrellas of colorful animals or floral patterns. The philosophy of this French maison is to rediscover beauty and inspiration in everyday life, rediscovering the shapes and colors of all those domestic objects that everyday use has made banal and almost invisible to our eyes.
Entering Pylones, in fact, you cannot go back with the memory of the wonder we felt, as children, entering a toy store- everything is colorful, everything intrigues, the colors vibrant. And the objects in the catalog are so numerous that it is impossible not to find that special accessory that suffers a breath of panache in your days. Whether it’s just a decorative magnet, a pen or a block of post-it notes, Pylones will know how to bring color back to your days.
The colorful objects, ranging from trolleys to hairbrushes, drag you into a colorful, vibrant and brilliant world, where even the smallest, marginal object that accompanies you in everyday life can become a way of demonstrating how much you can be colorful in your imagination.
Among the many gift shops in Florence, Pylones is definitely one of the best for every occasion: find the right and witty accessory, buy a gift that does not go unnoticed or simply travel with imagination in a colorful wonderland.
