Strolling along the canals of Venice, relaxing in the piazzas of Rome or admiring the runways in Milan, it’s easy to become enamored with Italian fashion. On one of our recent trips our friend Daniele taught us the saying, “Sprezzatura.” It means a studied nonchalance, graceful conduct without apparent effort. It’s not a specific style but rather a lifestyle Italians embrace.
Our Cecilia Handbag captures the essence of Sprezzatura. Handcrafted in Italy from luscious specchio leather, the classic silhouette is structured yet understated. Bags this stunning will often run you thousands. But with Italian style, beauty is in the execution and you need to go to the source. Big brand names and the price tag that goes with them often result in a trying-too-hard style that goes against everything Sprezzatura stands for. Instead we’re bringing you the heart and soul of Italian design. Handcrafted by a family workshop we have worked with for years, when we saw the Cecilia Handbag we knew she was the one.
