Karen Radley founder and MD of Scoop talks to Sissi Matarazzo, designer at Ratti SPA

Meet the creative mind behind this season's Scoop campaign.

What is your textile design background? 

I studied 5 years at Setificio, a school specialized in textile design, in Como, then I started my career in the style office of one of the Textile Company in the territory. I was lucky because it had both printing machine and looms so I followed the creation of the product from the design till the development. Since then I changed others companies acquiring different skills and knowledge, and always having fun doing my job, also thanks to the relationships I have with clients, especially with their style offices.
Como is the heart of Italy’s textile design industry - are you originally from Como? 

Yes, I am
How long have you worked for Ratti SPA? 

I’ve been working in Ratti for 6 years
What was the inspiration behind this season’s creative?

My idea was to create contrast among objects, colours, technics, to arrive to a very STRONG AND STRANGE result that can have an impact on people. My inspiration comes always from music, that always remind me of an atmosphere, a period of art and fashion, and I try to translate it into a collection.
We do have fun choosing our campaign themes! Do you enjoy working with us at Scoop?

It’s always important for me to get feedbacks of my works, this help me to do better and better. Obviously working on your input it’s really amazing for me!!!
