Overview of SINA COVA
An apparel brand with a trademark depicting a sea captain that originated in Italy.
A marine casual wear ‘SINA COVA’ was born in 1976 in Italy.
Based on the keyword, ‘Marine’, we’ve been loved by sensible people as a fine marine style brand which combines sporting functionality and refined Italian fashion.
SINA COVA began under the concept of marine sports such as sailing and cruising on the open sea with wonderful views of nature in the surrounding islands such as Sardegna on the Mediterranean sea. The main motif of this brand is a captain holding a pipe between his teeth called ‘LUPO DI MARE’, this image was modeled on a teacher at a marine school in the port city of Genoa, Italy.
It is made with a vivid and colorful base of red, orange and yellow which reminds you of the emerald blue of the Mediterranean, the greenness of the islands and the sunset red on top of the playfully minded design that puts a special attention to detail.
Products of SINA COVA are planned and manufactured in Japan through collaborative design with Cova Adriana Susanna from Italy.
