I am thrilled to introduce to you my first luxury bag collection, Tina Craig for Gianfranco Lotti, in collaboration with Gianfranco Lotti. Mr. Lotti has been creating exquisitely handcrafted bags for high-end European houses for over 45 years and is one of the most respected in the industry! Needless to say, it has been an incredible experience designing this collection under his guidance. Our collaboration is inspired by Mr. Lotti’s Italian heritage and my happy childhood memories — the bags’ colorful side panels were inspired by the freedom and joy I felt as a child riding my bike all day until dusk along the coast in Los Angeles. They depict birds on the wing, a sunset and stripes — all rendered in hand-cut and sewn calfskin. I wanted to evoke a sense of joy, fun, and carefree insouciance with the collection. The collection consists of beautifully crafted bags with a sense of whimsy at an elevated taste level. These qualities are what it’s really about for me, and if a bag can evoke such feelings for you all, then I couldn’t be happier.
I hope you love the collection!
