THE NUVOLE & EVIA STORY
In 1995, two young individuals decided to open an haute couture store incorporating clothing, shoes and bags. After seeking the perfect location, they finally opened the doors in November 1996 in Paola. The name derived from the term 'shab' in Maltese which means clouds and translated to Italian. After a few years, ownership fell on Julian Micallef who shifted from haute couture to fast fashion products - making fashionable items affordable to all.
Following the success, a second outlet was opened at the Embassy Shopping Complex in Valletta. However the major update to the company was given in 2005 with the opening of the flagship store in Birkirkara Malta. A few years after, in 2007, there was the introduction of men fashion within the company with the opening of the twin shop in Birkirkara solely for men. This was one of the largest solely men's outlet in the islands. In 2019, a new concept store 'EVIA' was opened instead incorporating both men and women clothing for younger generations.
In 2017, it was felt that there was a need to diversify and expand the shoes and bags department. As a result, there was the birth of Nuvole Accessories with its door opened in March 2017. Following the success, in November 2017, the second outlet opened its doors in Fgura, this was enlarged in 2020 to also encorporate clothing.
In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic spread, all outlets were closed by government orders. As a result, an online store was built to accommodate those in the comfort of their own home. Who knows what the future holds?
