Our Story

Founded in England by Swedish-Italian creative director Gabriella Verdi and her team, the label pays homage to Italian artisans and traditional production techniques to create exquisite, timeless pieces.

“Verdi is the culmination of a career spent working with true masters of their trade,” Gabriella said.

“Through the brand, I want to showcase their skills with examples of genuine luxury.”

“I believe that genuine luxury is measured by the ability of a piece to be considered an heirloom, something that is not only crafted to last, but that maintains its quality and style through time.”

Gabriella has her family roots in the Lombardy region of northern Italy but has spent the last 30 years living and working in fashion hotspots throughout Europe and Asia, giving her unique insight into the stylistic demands of today’s discerning woman.

This extensive experience of travel and foreign living serves as the backdrop to the brand. At a time when today’s modern woman embraces the value of travel and experiences more than ever, Verdi’s initial collection takes inspiration from the golden age of rail and ocean voyage with a selection of exquisite vanity cases.

Made by Florentine artisans and using leather sourced from a world-renowned tannery, each case is offered in two exceptional calfskin qualities - grained and crocodile - with an inner lining of precious nappa and finished with bespoke Italian hardware.

They are available in three different sizes and a delicate palette of four colours, making them equally befitting as a treasured travel companion or a statement piece for the home.

With exclusivity at our core, Verdi’s philosophy is to make limited runs of production with each piece made to order.

Using the finest materials and classic styling, Verdi aspires to make each creation the highlight of your collection.

“What makes these pieces unique is the precision and technical application required to produce them can only be undertaken by a select number of exceptional craftsman. That’s why it’s such an honour to be able to launch the brand in collaboration with them,” Gabriella added.
