The New Intimista Collection by Benedetta Bruzziches

by

Benedetta Bruzziches, 31 years old, born in Caprarola near Viterbo, artisan and Stylist: this is not a sort of
alternative ID card but it is the essential information that you must know about this young stylist who, at the age
of 28, was able to give birth to a brand of successful handbags, sold in numerous e-commerce platforms
among which Luisaviaroma , Lyst and ModaOperandi.

“Mine is not a company but a philosophy” said the stylist: the “philosophy” of which she speaks, is an
innovative system of artisan production, entirely Made in Italy, which allows a little town to work thanks to her
company; In fact, seven people work in the company, including family and friends of the foundress, and they all come from different crafts and studies. Outside the house-shop there is then the “widespread laboratory” that
Benedetta Bruzziches created in order to realize her collections. When the company was built, in 2009, the
stylist started to involve local artisans allowing them to participate in the production process. “We try to
understand which are the artisanal opportunities of the territory and try to develop them.” At the very beginning,
the company produced its bags in India, a country that Benedetta loves: “After attending as a student the IED
fashion School in Rome and after a first work experience in Milan, at Romeo Gigli’s store, an Indian
businessman proposed me to draw handbags for him.”

We can definitely see in all her creations that her goal is to restore the value of craftsmanship: small objects
cured in the smallest detail, colored and refined in such a way that you could insert them in the catalogue of a
museum. In particular, the autumn-winter 2017 collection is inspired to gems and is called Intimista, for the
common desire of the stylist and the two main collaborators, Justin Bradshaw (painter) and Paola Marinuzzi
(ceramic artist) to go deeper, to collect the essence and the purest magic of their work thanks to these
treasures.

Starting from precious and colored stones, all with their specific meaning and exploited in many combinations
and shades as possible, we then “jump” into the creation of pochettes using plexiglass with an almost 3d effect
called Ariel, as the stylist imagines these as the bags of the Queen of the Sea. However, due to the difficult
process of realization, only a few pieces per model were produced, all numbered, which is why they are so
unique!

Another model proposed is Carmen, small handbags entirely covered with fur except for a detail, a golden hand
that establishes an intimate relationship between the woman and her purse. In addition to the fur, it is also
available in velvet and Nappa leather and in numerous colored combinations: the orange one was even carried
by Rihanna during the Grammys.

Then we find these two other models, Brigitta and Dalida, classic and elegant in their timeless being, available
in both large and small size. In addition to the standard colors, black, pearl and pink, the stylist has asked to the
London artist Justin Bradshaw, known for his delicate representations of the natural world, to decorate some
models with floral prints. At the same time, she collaborated with the Marinuzzi sisters for the insertion of some
stones in other Brigitta and Dalida models. Whatever your choice is, you won’t go unnoticed with these bags!

Finally, a look at her flagship models, such as Smiling Moon, the Bespoken clutches (including the famous
Magic Mirror that is customizable) and the Frozen Cabaret… Choose an atmosphere, choose a meaning,
choose a feeling, choose a color, choose the right vibes and match your decision to a Bendetta Bruzziches
bag, if you want to give a twist to your own and special personality.
