A luxuriously illustrated book published to follow the historic and elegant Borbonese brand. This highly collectible volume takes a look at the lavish world of Borbonese, the historic Italian brand founded in Turin in 1910 that produces luxury handbags, jewelry, and accessories, combining the finest materials and manufacturing techniques with expert craftsmanship. With a history spanning more than a century, Borbonese designs remain classic and timeless, with the O.P. (partridge-eye) print as the brand s symbol and trademark. It is this unique texture presented in innovative ways, along with other distinctive elements on their iconic handbags, which have helped define Borbonese as one of the most distinguished brands in Italian fashion.Borbonese is known for their beautiful bags and scarves, still synonymous with quality and high style; however, the accessories range has evolved over time to include clothing and leather garments, as well as goods for the home, for a style that represents true global living. The book is divided into four chapters, each introduced by a different writer, which correspond to the animals that inspire Borbonese s classic designs: the butterfly, partridge, owl, and horse."
