Italy’s Handbag Queen: Anna Virgili

While a dog is a man’s best friend – apparently – a woman’s best friend has to be her designer handbag. If you naively believe a woman’s handbag is simply a practical accessory, think again! Instead, it’s about making a statement about how you feel and even what your approach to life is like. It’s about attitude, personality and expression. No wonder, so many women appreciate a good quality handbag that exudes smart sophistication and elegance with strong designs and a beautiful shape; in other words, an Anna Virgili bag in finest Italian leather.

Like all great designer stories, it all began close to 30 years ago in a small family-run boutique in Italy. Anna Virgili’s company, set up with her husband Ermanno Gaetani, started life in the beautiful east-coast Italian city of San Benedetto del Tronto. Specializing in high-quality leather goods, the company showcased handbags, purses, wallets, scarves and accessories made by some of the most renowned brands.

Fast-forward to 2013 and Anna’s children took over the running of the brand and the company was then named after their mother to represent her own brand of amazing leather bags. Anna Virgili bags are an everyday luxury, match a great variety of outfits and are wearable for many occasions, from formal events such as business lunches to more relaxed affairs such as garden parties.
