For the first time Giorgio Armani has decided to choose two luxury retailers, Antonia in Milan and L’Eclaireur in Paris, to launch its new bag, Le Sac 11. The bag, which will be presented during the upcoming fashion weeks, will be available in limited editions for each store.
Le Sac 11 is a top-handle bag with two soft, textured handles and the allure of a classic that seems to have always been in the wardrobe.
Available in three sizes, small, medium and large, it is made from a range of fine leathers, including crocodile skin, tanned leather, and calfskin, and comes in different colours. It features precious metal fittings and covered rivets at the handles’ closure.
To celebrate the brand’s 40th anniversary, the designer has chosen the number 11 for its symbolic value: the double-digit number is the day of his birth as well as the number of the building that is the historical headquarters of the company, in the secret heart of the Brera district of Milan. This double link emphasises the strong and individual nature of the project.
Le Sac 11 will be sold in a selection of Giorgio Armani boutiques starting from April.
