Sabrina Franchini. A visionary fashion designer. A fast-paced working life, the needs of four children, an instinctive intellectual curiosity and constant desire for new challenges led Sabrina to think about developing her very specific, ideal bag: lightweight and roomy, very chic with a very simple, understated style. The Slow bag was born, a carryall that fits nearly everything you need, the 24/7 perfect shopper. Soft, cosy and unlined, handmade in Italy by skilled craftsmen selecting the finest leathers only. It was 2013 and Sabrina Franchini Bags, her eponymous, small business reality and independent label all about bags, was born. Preferably organic, roomy bags, on the cutting edge with unmistakable style, where aesthetics meet functionality.

Sabrina’s bags are timeless and truly stylish, beyond fashion trends and seasons. Her Modena-based label, cum atelier, showroom and boutique has amassed a serious cult following since she first opened her doors. A cozy and private space in an ancient Italian palazzo is the perfect environment for discovering, by appointment and possibily sipping a cup of coffee, Sabrina Franchini bags and accessories and their true spirit. You can even meet Sabrina – perfect Italian signora and personal shopper – in person and just rely on her amazing tips. Or you can get very well along with Paola, probably the greatest living expert on luxury bags and accessories, Sabrina’s good friend and perfect “partner in crime”. Beyond iconic bags and best seller accessories always in-stock, a sneak peak of new and limited edition bags made of special hides, colours and treatments are worth the visit and special orders can be placed.

Sabrina Franchini stockists in Italy and worldwide are very few and carefully selected. For information and special requests contact paola@sabrinafranchini.it By chance and simply getting out there, accepting or returning some friend’s invitations Sabrina has lately started a new, successful strategy based on events and special collaborations. A different, very personal approach focused on a kind and friendly relationship with other women, sharing her vision with other creative talents and innovative retailers. Sabrina Franchini event schedule is quickly getting ready and will be published soon on website and social media.

Stay tuned & enjoy (have fun).
