The fashion shows at Circolo Meneghino and Circolo Nerazzurro, Palazzo Litta’s show inaugurating the opening of the shop in Via Vincenzo Monti, De Scal’s 40th anniversary celebrated in the Stuart Weitzman boutique in Via della Spiga, not forgetting those unique design characteristics that helped mark an era, such as the mini furs, some even with short sleeves, as well as the long and lavish regal furs. And naturally, those memories linked to significant people, amongst whom one name stands out – Jole Veneziani, an extraordinary lady, endowed with generosity and charm, incomparable teacher, from whom lessons were learnt, never to be forgotten; lessons on the importance of precise workmanship and sophisticated details.
This was one of the guidelines specifically chosen by Giacamo, who was the general manager of the company, and especially by Pia Maria, who has been in charge of modelling and tailoring since the outset in 1956 and who knows every secret of her field, so much so that she models fur coats as if they were gloves rather than pieces of clothing and treats every type of fur or any other material, including fabrics, with the creative versatility of an expert seamstress.
The De Scal brand, an acronym of the surname Solivani with the additional prefix “De” and the initials of Cristina, Ancilla e Lorenzo, children of Giacomo and Maria Pia the founders of the company, originates in its namesake shop, centrally located in ‘Via Vincenzo Monti,’ one of Milan’s most chic locations.
It is here that over time has created an ambience rich with elegance and warmth, one built on a family that stands side by side, delighted and proud to offer its affectionate clientele a heritage of quality and beauty.
The De Scal heritage is now co-shared with Ancilla. Joining the company in 1985 after obtaining a Fashion design Diploma with honours, she became the creative soul of De Scal. This however has not stopped her from following in her father’s footsteps and acquiring the difficult skill of selecting skins at auctions. A further addition to this second generation is Cristina, an architect, in charge of the important and challenging area of communications.

ELEGANCE AND STYLE. BUT ABOVE ALL TRADITION AND QUALITY.
These are the characteristics that distinguish De Scal’s creations. Unique pieces birthed from the creativity and passion of the Solivani family over the past 40 years and passed down from generation to generation.

The new atelier

The wisdom of artisans is a precious treasure that does not diminish over time; this is why De Scal has decided to open a new atelier in via Petrarca, thus offering their clientele sartorial passion and a love for refined details, two qualities that have characterised handcrafted fur coats since the ‘70s and that remain steadfastly unchanged.
