Leather Galore! 13 Dreamy Made In Italy Bag Labels To Flaunt This Season

by Julia Oakes

As we continue treading along into the thick of fashion week calendars, we can’t help but dream of out-of-office sabbaticals where the work stops and the fashion tops! And so, we’ve got our eyes set on Italy—specifically, the 70 Made in Italy labels ready to show at COTERIE, scheduled to return to in-person format in NYC from February 27 – March 1. Next up: leather goods and polished carryalls reminiscent of stitched Italian excellence. 


There’s no question this sustainably-sourced, artisanal bag label checks all the right boxes, but what’s the point in simply doing what’s expected? Touting a bold and divergent personality, Arcadia’s unconventional aesthetic explores beyond the bounds of fashion and into the spheres of music, art, and international culture. From oversized hobo bags to structured bucket bags, architectural shapes to asymmetric lines, each made-for-always silhouette is an investment worth making.

Conceptualized by founder Sandro Campobasso, Le Sandrine transforms out-of-commission art and furniture fabrics into sophisticated, bold, and personalizable carryalls.
