A Molise native by birth, but a citizen of the world by choice, Gaetano Pollice decided to start from the traditions of his own roots, from the culture and tastes of this region nestled between the Appennino Sannita and the beaches of the Adriatic sea, in order to give life to his own collection of handmade bags. “I like the idea of having my bags created by artisanal hands that speak my language. And I would like to have them get on a plane and visit all the cities that I have visited over the years”. Every bag of his is much more than a simple object. It is passion, love, and joy, all together.
The new collection called Lightness takes its inspiration from the Japanese culture of fans, UCHIWA and SENSU. Lightness is the key word. A return to geometric and simplistic lines, but with great attention to details like leather pleatings and the twists of handles. The materials used are calfskin, nappa leather, and leathers printed with exotic prints like snakeskin, but also iridescent prints, coated with glossy and bright effects. The insides are all lined in leather or cotton in the mini Buckets.
