Vincenzo De Cotiis is an architect, a multi-faceted, crossdisciplinary personality, interested in architecture, design, art and fashion.
Born in 1958 in Puglia, but bred in Brescia, he lives and works between Milan and Fano. He graduated in architecture from the Polytechnic of Milan.
He deals with architecture and interior design (houses, boutiques in ltaly and abroad, Alberta Ferretti showroom in Via Montenapoleone in Milan, Store Sugar in Arezzo, Joffree in Barcelona, Straff Hotel in Milan), with design (he designs and produces under his own name a collector of unique pieces made of salvage materials which are then distributed in art galleries), he is an artist (paintings and artistic works) and the designer behind the cult brand "Haute", a small but extremely elegant and exclusive fashion house based in Brescia that is much sought after all over the world.
His passion for malleable materials, the recycling of fabrics, objects from the past, and unusual assembly emerges in each of his works.
