《PIQUADRO @ SS2012 Bag Collection》

Piquadro SS2012 bag collection celebrates Italy and its great artistic tradition with a tribute to opera. In fact, the two new masculine lines, Nabucco and Bohème, and the three feminine ones, Aida, Tosca and Rigoletto, are named after famous operas by the Italian composers Giuseppe Verdi and Giacomo Puccini. Bohème, on the other hand, is a twin-colour line in canvas and leather where the material and chromatic combination clearly expresses the informality of those who choose an easy accessory for free time while wishing to stand out from the crowd with a precise style, a perfect mix of functionality and sophistication. The natural materials, ample volumes and destructured forms lend this line a softness and natural appearance clearly underlined by the visible saddle-stitching and the inside-out construction. Though conceived for free time, Bohème, too, has a carefully considered internal organization where a double padded notebook and tablet pocket is combined with a series of multi-function pockets of various sizes. The colour palette foresees combinations of cold tones, such as grey, blue or black, and of warm ones such as khaki, orange, brown and yellow.
Nabucco is a business line in leather combining simple, rigorous design with the unmistakeable Piquadro touch and a casual elegance destined to please the most refined anti-conformists. A special laser process creates a motif with slender horizontal lines on the front part, inspired by the simple, clean lines of 1950s furnishing. The well-structured forms acquire softness through the special inside-out processing and the material used, a fine quality Italian hide to which hand buffing lends a warm and natural appearance. The rectangular volumes are further softened by the bottomless lines of the flap and the pockets. Stylistic research is especially evident, as always, in the design of the details in metal such as closures, rings and hooks. The internal spaces are organized to include a double padded notebook and tablet pocket and a series of multi-function pockets of various sizes.The colour palette ranges from the most classical business tones such as black, brown and natural leather to the seasonal colours of blue and grey. And naturally the Piquadro orange.
Aida is an elegant feminine business collection characterized by the combination of two leathers, one with a full grain and one smooth. The square forms acquire softness through the special twisted and sunken process on the sides. The large structures are softened by the rounded lines of the flaps on the front pockets. Stylistic research and the unmistakable Piquadro style are expressed in the details such as the metal accessories, stitching with colour-contrasting thick thread and the ever-present address label.  Besides the large front pockets, Aida also has essential yet practical internal organisation with a notebook and iPad holder.
