Having only previously released a small capsule range, this was the first full season for new bag brand Retropose.
The brain-child of Rome fashion school graduates and friends Giulia Mitarotonda and Federica Cremisini, all Retropose’s bags are made in Italy from Italian leather by two ladies back in their home town. The duo even produce the trims like the twisted and woven leather themselves, giving a real hand-finished quality to the range. Aside from classic shapes like the doctor’s bag in black leather, the more unusual shapes such as the zip-round bucket tote will really stand out in store.
