Bag (and not bag) persons, today I’m glad to introduce Laetitia to you.
Laetitia is a young brand of bags and accessories born in 2013 in the heart of Tuscany, a region famous for amazing art and architecture, breathtaking landscapes, great wine and a long tradition of handicraft.
Laetitia, which means joy in latin, aims to create elegant, luxurious and timeless bags for women with a defined sense of style. Even a “not a bag person” like me immediately fell in love with Laetitia’s creations, also because the brand offers a made to measure service so you can create your own bag, choosing among many colors.
The brand has three main models: Sylvia, Tippi and Lavinia.
Sylvia, Laetitia’s first-born bag, is named after Anita Ekberg’s character in the famous film “La Dolce Vita” (1960), directed by Federico Fellini. It has a vintage vibe and its round shape makes it practical and elegant. Sylvia is available as a handbag and as a clutch. It is such a timeless and versatile bag. Its elegance can elevate a casual everyday outfit and perfectly accessorize classy daytime and evening looks. Blue navy and blush pink is my favorite color combo, I find it very classy.
Tippi, named after actress and model Tippi Hedren (my favorite among all Hitchcock’s muses and for those who are not fond of a certain genre, Dakota Johnson’s grandmother), is a very classy bag with a retro vibe. It looks like the bag of the protagonist of an old thriller, because the protagonists of those films were always so chic! I like its geometric shape and its chain shoulder strap. Tippi is available in two versions, as a flap bag and as a shopper.
As a huge film lover, I have a thing for brands that take inspiration from films and those iconic characters and actors that are still a source of inspiration when it comes to style and fashion.
Lavinia is Laetitia’s latest born. Inspired by beauty bags, it’s perfect for those women who like small bags and prefer to carry with them only the essentials. Even if I usually go for roomy bags, I admit that going out with a lightweight, compact bag is very comfortable. Sometimes I wish I was minimalist!
All Laetitia bags are classy, timeless and youthful. Some say that elegance consists in not being noticed. But sometimes elegance means to make somebody wonder what you are wearing and which bag you’re carrying.
Laetitia bags and accessories are available on Laetitia’s official site and in famous Italian shops like Biffi, Penelope and Vela Shop.
