All Ladies' Handbags
Founded by Marco Campomaggi in 1986, Campomaggi has established itself as the premier name in vintage-styled handbags. The son of a sculptor, Marco inherited the artistic drive in his blood. He designed his first bags as a student, using saddle leather and metal fittings. These origins still inform Campomaggi’s style, as the bags’ detailing often nods to the robust character of leather tack. Campomaggi’s materials and production process are unique in the world of luxury handbags. First, Campomaggi is one of the only luxury brands to use cowhide leather. Whereas many shy away from cow leather’s rugged texture, Marco developed a special washing and dying process to soften the material while retaining its uniquely robust character, which are perfectly suited for Campomaggi’s vintage style. The result is an irreproducible vintage bag that will only soften over time while it gains character and vintage appeal.
Founded in Florence 1968, Gianfranco Lotti is an iconic luxury line whose history and style are interwoven with the city it calls home. Eponymous founder Gianfranco Lotti is a lifelong Florentine. As an adolescent he apprenticed as a leather artisan before starting his own company, where he specialized in leather belts until he could afford the materials and machinery necessary to make handbags. Gianfranco Lotti’s enduring, worldwide renown as a symbol of luxury style comes from, in large part, the timeless elegance and attractiveness of its design—classically beautiful in a way that can be worn above and regardless of prevailing trends. Lotti credits his home city’s timeless beauty as inspiration: “Florence inspires beauty.” Even the brand’s signature keyhole emblem derives from the iconic doors of Florence’s 14th century homes.
