The Braccialini brand’s history goes back almost 70 years. The bespoken and unforgettable style of these unique and romantic bags was created back in 1954 by the artist called Carla Cecconi-Braccialini in the very heart of art and the cradle of Italian leather craftsmanship – in Florence. A lot of great Italian fashion and leather goods brands originate from Tuscany. It is there, in the valley of the Arno river, that special leather processing techniques and secrets have been known since the twelfth century.
Braccialini is among the most unique global brands famous for its artistic, unusually shaped bags and accessories. In the upcoming season, Braccialini designers have come up with women’s romantic image in pastel shades: from pale yellow to light blue, pink, tiffany, and beige.
This season’s character is Lion - the king of animals.
The Temi, Audrey, and Michele collections are dedicated to this character. The lion-themed bag is shaped as this charismatic predator’s head in the hippie style: natural brown and beige raffia makes up the muzzle of this proud and cute animal with a crown of light fringe and knitted flowers creating his majestic mane.
Another piece of art is a shabby chic basket filled with blue flowers and decorated with rhinestones and jewelry accessories. This bag makes a fashionable look romantic and feminine.
The Audrey bag is rich in embroidery and applique work framing a tiffany bas-relief shaped in the center in the shape of a lion with winged decorations made of small “feathers” cut of genuine leather. The background consists of prints and floral applications. On the reverse side of the bag, there is a cheerful cloud with white dandelions that embodies spring lightness.
Penelope is another iconic Braccialini line, represented by a solid-shaped bag model in the classic 1970s style. Here, the eye-catcher is a pastel yellow bag decorated with handmade leather flowers and a metal jewelry figurine of an enameled bee.
The Cartoline line is traditionally dedicated to travelling. This season is a romantic summer spent in the great capitals of the world and their historical sites of the early 1900s:
• Moscow with its 19th century Russian Empire architecture and a ballerina performing a piece from the Swan Lake ballet.
• Paris with its Montmartre Cathedral and the Eiffel Tower and a cute pug dog in a luggage basket of a women’s bicycle.
• Japanese geishas walking around spring Tokyo.
• A flamenco dancer performing in a square in Barcelona.
Besides bags and purses, the Cartoline (Postcards) collection line also includes nice round and heart-shaped clutches.
Among a variety of bags from the summer 2022 collection, the romantic Sara line is worth being mentioned – these bags are fully made in Italy of genuine soft leather and decorated with a perforated floral ornament and a handmade leather flower on a stem. The shapes are functional and fashionable – from a handbag to a maxi shopper, from a crossbody messenger to a backpack.
