FOCUS ON YOUR NEW FAVORITE: LE GIANNI
At Léo et Violette, we design an average of 5 to 10 new shapes per year, sometimes retaining only one. When we introduce a new bag into our collection, it is always a unique event. Le Gianni is no exception.
ABOUT THE CREATION.
First of all, the Gianni reinvents and replaces a best seller, the Sienna. With its construction made of a central compartment and two gussets with straight edges, it takes up the emblematic design of the "box" bags.
Secondly, it is adorned with a brand new clasp, designed and industrialized by hand with our production workshop in Naples.
Finally, the Gianni is the result of almost 10 years of experience. It is what you would expect from a timeless model: style without being overdressed. A structured base, without being rigid. A practical size, without being bulky.
FROM DESIGN TO THE REALIZATION.
For the first time, we are sharing with you all the drawings that allowed the creation of a new model. Structure, jewelry and custom clasp are all elements that have been carefully designed to allow our Italian workshop to shape the Gianni design.
A drawing in leather goods must be as precise as possible. So I draw the bag from every angle, even the inside. We are closer to product design than to ready-to-wear.

MADE BY HAND IN ITALY
For almost 10 years we have been working with our Italian workshop where we manufacture all our collections. The Gianni, in the purest tradition of craftsmanship, is also made in Naples, by hand, in top quality Italian calf leather.
