The "Couture Bags" project was born in 2014 and in 2015 the first lab-Store opens in Rome, in the heart of the historic center. Bags and accessories are made entirely by hand, limited edition and in some cases unique and custom pieces.
The choice of materials, exclusively Italian, creates a break with the classic couture concept, making the end effect rich but not discounted. While always keeping in mind the practical aspect of the models, originality is expressed through the embroidery and the application of accessories, strictly handmade.
The combination of precious leather, technological fabrics, felt, crystals, metal accessories in different galvanics are blended with craftsmanship and modern design.
The collection of "Couture Bags" is divided into capsules that take the name of international cities and the models are distinguished through the names of its neighborhoods. Choosing to name the city on the bags is born out of the great passion of Ileana Licari for travel and culture in the world, it is sometimes dictated during the drawing phase, at other times it is at the end of the bag making the designer come Inspired by the name of the city.
This is how in the vast collection you can find the sophistication of "Paris" in the Montmartre design, in the Pyramid, Cristal or Miroir version, such as the extremely rocky and gritty Newcastle or the absolute minimalism of Tokyo.
The extreme care of the materials, the perfect combination of colors and accessories make each single bag a precious object that excites every time you wear it.
