THE LABELS
PENNYBLACK offers a style that is constantly keeping up with the times, highly aware of trends without exasperating tones.

The accessories are part of the must-haves of the season and are always updated with new details, materials and volumes.
PENNYBLACK is a perfect combination of authenticity and quality, expressed through research and selection of fabrics, colors, shapes and patterns.

Two words, a harmonious combination, a winning binomial. In the name of its brand TWINSET reveals its origins, its present and its future paths. Starting from the transverse spirit of this iconic garment, a union of a cardigan and its sweater, a marriage between feminine fascination and self-assured elegance, discreet seduction and sartorial knowhow, but also ambassador of a territory that has made quality and excellence its cardinal virtues. And then a versatile company with a strong identity imbued with creativity, research, insight, entrepreneurial spirit, two driving forces and unanimous passion.

That’s right, because right from the start Simona Barbieri and her husband managed to transmit a harmony that drives the production lines, the same one that can be felt in the corridors of the company and can be perceived in the daily actions of its staff’s every activity. And this may well be the secret of a success that cares little for its motivations but is aware of how, to be successful, it is necessary to focus on everything that lies behind each garment, but is invisible to the naked eye: commitment, shared values, passion, and above all, an expression of everyone’s personal talents which, like the thousand strands that go to create knitwear, is a vital part of important work.

Not only do those who work in the company love to express themselves in concrete terms they also love the product and wear it showing a style that is complete, romantic and with a character that can vary according to each person’s unique and inimitable personality.


It is this harmony that the consumer feels when she enters the shop, it is this style that she wears in daily life and for important occasions. It is an image that has become established yet continues to evolve over time: increasingly total, modern, abounding in inspiration and projected into the world.
