PR Log - Dec 17, 2012 - Toronto, Ontario – As a brand that exudes pure Italian luxury, Treccani Milano is best known for its completely custom-made men’s and women’s leather shoes and boots. Now, the Toronto- and Milan-based company is adding ready-to-wear leather purses that are handmade in Italy to its already impressive repertoire.
Featuring a wide selection that includes tote bags, handbags and shoulder bags, the new line offers something for everyone. Those with classic, refined style can enhance their wardrobes with bags made of sumptuous leathers ranging from ostrich to baby calf to alligator in a wide selection of colours. For a casual-chic look, Treccani Milano also offers options that combine their rich leathers with canvas for unparalleled versatility.
Prices range between $1,650 and $18,000 and all bags are stamped with the company’s trademark Italian greyhound in solid bronze. They can also be personalized with monogrammed initials. In a similar fashion to its renowned shoe collection, customers who wish to customize their purses can opt for the company’s BeSpoke service.
Unlike mainstream luxury fashion houses, Treccani Milano shoes, boots and bags are all authentically Italian and truly one-of-a-kind. Made with a devotion to details, each product is created at the company’s Milan bottega (Italian for laboratory) by a team of artisans who work by hand.
The purses were designed by Nicole Branicky, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Treccani Milano, during her stay in Milan. "It took over three months just to see my purse designs materialize in real forms,” Nicole explains. “I went back and forth from our atelier to the bottega exploring ideas with the artisans to find the right balance between design, proportions and usability.”
General Manager and Co-Founder Emanuele Bonasia couldn’t be more pleased about adding the new line of bags. “After receiving an overwhelmingly positive response to our shoes and boots, bringing purses into our collection just seemed like the perfect fit,” he says.
Those unable to get to the Treccani Milano showroom in Toronto can visit its e-boutique to select to view all options and order their purses online. “Our website makes it easy for clients from around the world to match with their favourite Treccani Milano shoes and boots,” says Bonasia.
