PAOLA BONACINA Interview

 

The Italian taste, the American dream, Paola Bonacina lives the craftsmanship from her uncle and aunt, who shared with her the know-how and passed on to her the importance of quality. Today she wants to transmit with her collections the idea of the great dream, of those that become reality, like her eponymous brand made of small jewels studied in detail. They are more than bags, they are the accessory that completes the look of every woman and makes it unique and elite. Paola Bonacina's bags are totally Made in Italy and the production is entrusted to small manufacturers, an important support that the entrepreneur wants to give to her beloved country.

What is the strong point of the Paola Bonacina brand?

Craftsmanship, Made in Italy and the search for detail.

Why did you decide to dedicate yourself to the "bag" product?

An adolescence marked by memories of my uncle and aunt who were leather workers and produced bags, an element that can encompass femininity, style and can give personality to the wearer.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

A song, a trip, the culture of a country; I let myself be fascinated by the beauty that surrounds me.
