EXCLUSIVE: FONTANA MILANO 1915 FOR ANTONIA
WHISPERED LUXURY WITH A TWIST
In Antonia’s ongoing crop of exclusive collaborations, luxe accessories company Fontana Milano 1915 has developed a number of high-profile styles, from cross-body bags to practical satchels, in special colors only for Antonia. They include the A Bag and the Busy Day Lady, plus smartphone cases, all exquisitely crafted using prized materials such as butter-soft calfskin, nappa and lizard, crafted in mini to roomy sizes. The exclusive color chart includes warm gray, grape, tobacco, amber, gold, green and lacquer red. Michele and Paolo Massa are the third generation owners of this storied Milanese company, founded in 1915, which successfully navigated through the last century by straddling the past and the future. Leveraging on its longstanding savoire-faire that is strictly interlaced with the values of the Made in Italy moniker, Fontana has weathered the recent global economic crisis with a new line of products that will serve as a solid foundation for future growth. Over 250 workers and craftsmen painstakingly assemble the bags whose modern practicality and less-is-more elegance has wooed a flurry of A-list celebrities including Cameron Diaz, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jessica Chastain, Bar Rafaeli, Sofia Vergera, Bianca Brandolini, Mischa Barton, Margherita Missoni and Nicoletta Romanoff.
