It’s clearly that time of the year again and as the holiday spirit settles all around, we would like to share with you some labels that possess a real luxury spirit, but are known by a more elite, astute few.
As the leather goods market becomes ever more saturated, finding luxury hand bags made by true European artisans is hard to find. We put together a list of alternative ideas for men and women that exude the values of hand craftsmanship and Italian elegance: Aeleonore, Fontana Milano 1915 and Lido Venezia.
Aeleonore prides itself on its architectural heritage. This bi-color Agnese bag in Nappa leather conjures images of Florence’s monuments. Photo courtesy of Aeleonore.
Just as charming as its sister, the Agnese mini is perfect for a night out. Also Available in yellow, black and baby blue.
