Bonfanti – An Italian Brand Celebrating The Best Of British

When it comes to choosing a bag, what criteria do you use? Do you go for strictly fashion, choosing something from the High Street that you might use for the season, and then abandon and go onto something else? Or do you opt for style, looking for a bag of good quality with a classic look that you will be able to choose year and year without looking dated? If the answer is the later, than you need to check out the Bonfanti collection at Attavanti.

Bonfanti started life in Italy in 1945, and is now a worldwide name, a name that is synonymous with quality and luxury. One of the things that make the brand so special and unique is that although the brand is Italian through and through, it marries leather with prints and fabrics that are uniquely British.

One of my favourite ranges uses iconic Liberty prints and designs. The prints used are amongst the most famous of the famous London brand including ‘strawberry thief’,  ‘Betsy’ and ‘Liberty Lodden’. The bags come in a range of sizes, from small tote grab bags perfect for every day use, larger totes that make great shoppers, and a brilliant weekend bag which would also work well as hand luggage. Each design combines the print with luxurious leather trims and handles.

If the Liberty print bags are shouting out to Spring, then another Bonfanti collaboration would be perfect to match to your winter coats and boots. As well as using lovely printed cotton, Bonfanti uses Harris Tweed for a range of bags. This glorious heritage fabric looks brilliant when used on hobo bags and wash bags, creating items that are super stylish and classic all at once.

My own personal favourite is the ‘Edward’ herringbone tweed that just screams Stella Tennant and Vogue country style. I love the idea of using this tweed with jeans and a simple sweater, bringing a heritage look bang up to date.
