When What’s Inside Does Not Always Count
Are you a shoe lover or purse enthusiast? Once you see this brand’s latest collection, you’ll want nothing more. Gamberini, the hottest thing out of Italy lately, is designed by an art expert who now lends her talents to curating handbags that are as unique as the woman who carries it; meet your new signature bag.
About the Brand
In a tiny yet sartorial boutique along via Massimo d’Azeglio in Bologna, customers can get lost in the world of Gamberini. Founded by Ilenia Gamberini and handmade by local artisans, bags come in supple Italian leather and vegan leather. Each season is filled with gorgeous new hues to complement the intimate range of casual to stylish designs—from carry-all totes to prim bucket bags to oversized day clutches.
Why It Made Our List
The brand is desired for its most standout feature—interchangeable appliqués that are adorned on each bag to create an elegant, artistic or sassy focal point. You decide. From reimaginations of Frida Kahlo to pieces made out of high-end designer fabrics left over from previous collections, you can change your bag depending on your mood or the setting, easily going from work to play. Each bag comes with three appliqués.
Where to Buy
Wander into the flagship store in Bologna to see the latest styles, colors, and appliqués, which change daily. However, if a trip to Italy is not in your plans, then visit Gamberini’s international website and let creativity be your guide.
