New Pleated Overnight Bags by Campomaggi

The fourth style of new Campomaggi bags introduced for the spring summer collection of 2015 is a line of overnight bags that features pleated leather towards the handle. The pleats are lined with discrete brass studs. These bags are not just unique models that we had never seen before but they are also presented the new colors including the cotto which is a terracotta color that is brown but much richer, just like actual terracotta.

These bags show Marco Campomaggi is an avid traveler of both time and space. He told me how he likes to go to flea market to look at old bags from a time past to find inspiration and design ideas. These travel bags remind me of the bags we used to carry as teenagers as we left for our summer vacations. Growing up I didn’t realize the quality of bags that were in my hands. But now I realize that they lasted for so long for a reason: they were built to last, and with the right kind of leather.

That is exactly the feeling I get from these bags today. Excellent leather, craftsmanship, and design come together in a product that is build to last and go places in the process.

Let me know if you see the same in these bags. The SCARPA is the smaller one and the one we received in Cotto.
