Due to the high demand for head to toe outfitting, the brand is excited to be re introducing handbags, having not produced this category since 2017. Expertly crafted in Italy and Spain, our range of leather handbags are modern classics, designed to last. Inspired by fluid forms and sharp lines, the luxurious pieces have been created with artisanal experience and techniques. The bags made in Italy have been crafted with calf leather, locally dyed, and tanned, and lined with 100% cotton canvas for the ultimate in lavish accessories.
Additionally, the pieces made in Spain are crafted using nappa leather – a superior and luxuriously smooth material with a satin finish and are lined with 100% recycled cotton canvas. All Scanlan Theodore hardware is solid brass with a light gold finishing. Sleek and elegant in design, the collection of bags captures key silhouettes in classic, monochromatic colorways – perfect for any occasion, all year round.
We are excited to announce a big expansion of retail brick and mortar in the coming 24 months including new boutiques at Bal Harbour, Miami, NorthPark, Dallas, New York and DC.
